I liked how TCM grouped the films so there is a theme for each day.     At least 2 movies each day that I'm interested in.

They usually do try to arrange them by theme. When Sterling Hayden was featured last May, they grouped his by genre.

And unlike many SOTM honorees, there will be some silent films included. No post-code movies either, since her screen career ended in 1942. So this should make plenty of people around here quite happy.
