    December 2018 Schedule is up

    Re: the bumping of CHRISTMAS HOLIDAY (Universal) and PICK-UP ON SOUTH STREET (20th Century Fox), I would agree that this is likely out of necessity so TCM could rent SMOKEY AND THE BANDIT (Universal) and THE LONGEST YARD (20th Century Fox). Just speculation, but it certainly makes sense.

    Death Takes No Holiday -- The Obituary Thread

    Patricia Morison, the Broadway and (sometimes) film actress who originated the role of Kate in the 1948 production of Cole Porter's Kiss Me Kate, died on May 20, 2018 at her Los Angeles home. She was 103. She also starred opposite Yul Brynner in the Broadway cast of The King and I (stepping in after the death of Gertrude Lawrence). On film, Morison had supporting roles in The Song of Bernadette, The Fallen Sparrow (both 1943), and Dressed to Kill (1946) opposite Basil Rathbone's Sherlock Holmes. Her best film role, at least according to Darryl F. Zanuck, is one that audiences have never gotten to see. Morison was cast as the wife of Victor Mature in the 1947 classic Kiss of Death and her performance was such a knockout that Zanuck predicted she would earn the Oscar for Best Supporting Actress. But due to the content of her character's storyline, the censors demanded that all her scenes be removed from the film. The Hollywood Reporter remembers Patricia Morison here:
