  6. Great schedule Stevo! I'm glad I'm not the only one who wants TCM to show a Peanuts films, because frankly, Ol' Chuck doesn't get enough love! I love the salute to Alec Guinness (although there's no showing of The Ladykillers) and your selection of animal films is great! Plus, who doesn't love Hayley Mills!
  7. actor Robert Guillaume dead at 89

    Which I don't think is necessarily a bad thing EricJ. He was great as Rafiki. "It's in the past. The past can't hurt. And the way I see it, you can either run from it, or . . . learn from it." R.I.P. Robert

  11. Thanks LonesomePolecat! I'm glad you like it! It was hard to find a good nursery rhyme that I could develop a theme around, but I finally settled on Old King Cole and I'm glad I did.
  12. Thanks Lydecker. I appreciate the feedback. I love showing classic cartoons such as those made by Warner Bros. and Disney. Showing A Boy Named Charlie Brown ​was something I've always wanted to do on TCM. I'm glad you like it. BTW. I can't believe you forgot to mention that I had scheduled Laura as part of my block of mystery films.

Sunday kicks off with a nice trip to the country. A slate of movies featuring country and rural settings includes the Disney classic Old Yeller and the premiere of the Nicolas Cage neo-noir film Red Rock West will be shown. Leaving the wild frontier of America, we head to the highlands of Scotland for a double feature of films set in the rolling hills of old Albion, The Swordsman and the Academy Award-nominated The Green Years starring 1946 Best Supporting Actor nominee Charles Coburn. Two fantastical features set in fairy tale worlds will be the focus of TCM’s Silent Sunday Nights. This includes the premiere of the 1916 production of Snow White starring Marguerite Clark, the version that inspired a then 15-year old Walt Disney to make his own version of the tale 21 years later. The Adventures of Prince Achmed will also be shown. TCM Imports highlights a tribute to 1940’s French romantic star Gerard Philipe, who had died 60 years earlier in 1959. Devil in the Flesh and Beauties of the Night will be the films highlighted. On Monday, join TCM as they attempt to solve the mystery with a series of films inspired by the game Clue. These include two exempt premieres, 1980 Agatha Christie adaptation The Mirror Crack’d and 1985’s Clue, an adaptation of the aforementioned board game. Other favorites include 1947’s Song of the Thin Man and 1944’s Laura. Even web-footed Warner Bros. star Daffy Duck gets in on the act with the hilarious 1956 short Deduce, You Say! Then Frank Sinatra takes over as the programming shifts to an evening slate of Ol’ Blue Eyes’ most dramatic performances. Sinatra’s Western Johnny Concho and the 1965 WWII classic Von Ryan’s Express make their TCM debuts, and favorites such as Suddenly and A Hole in the Head are also featured. Do you like Freddie Bartholomew? If you said “Oh yes sir!”, then we certainly have the morning of programming for you. The short, but memorable, career of former child actor Bartholomew will be highlighted all day on Tuesday. 1937’s Captains Courageous and 1935’s David Copperfield are among the highlights, while the 1940 version of Swiss Family Robinson will make its debut on TCM. In the evening, Cinderella, newly crowned queen, is TCM’s Special Guest Programmer. Join her as she chats with Ben Mankiewicz about her life and career as well as showing her favorite movies. The lineup includes the TCM exempt premiere of the 1965 television version of Rodgers and Hammerstein’s Cinderella and the film that made Audrey Hepburn a star and earned her an Oscar, 1953’s Roman Holiday. Cindy and her mice friends look forward to sharing these magical films with you! On Wednesday, we’re off! TCM will be showing a selection of films focusing on travel in its many forms - planes, trains and boats. The Palm Beach Story and A Night at the Opera bring the laughs while the 1953 movie Titanic and 1974 ensemble piece Murder on the Orient Express provide just enough drama and suspense. After you’ve recovered from the long journey, you are invited to enjoy an evening of performances by “old souls”. These are the kid characters who act and sound wise beyond their years such as Tatum O’Neal’s Addie Logan in Peter Bogdanovich’s Paper Moon or the blanket-toting philosopher Linus van Pelt in A Boy Named Charlie Brown, an exempt premiere based off one of America’s best-known comic strips. Can you believe the movie will be 50 years old in 2019? Good grief! On Thursday, TCM has planned a real treat! The morning and afternoon schedule will see a slate of films starring the supporting players of Frank Capra’s 1946 holiday classic It’s a Wonderful Life. This seminal movie will be making its TCM premiere following the likes of Ball of Fire co-starring angel-in-training Henry Travers and the premiere of Chicago Deadline starring Donna Reed, the Mary Hatch to James Stewart’s George Bailey. Beulah Bondi, Thomas Mitchell, Samuel S. Hinds and Lionel Barrymore will also be featured in this lineup. In the evening, catch TCM’s new star of the month and November birthday boy Burt Lancaster, as he plays both detective and gunslinger, among other roles, in a block of films highlighting his long and varied career. 1948 noir classic Sorry, Wrong Number and 1983 cult hit Local Hero are among the standouts. Lights, camera, action! Actors take the spotlight on Friday as TCM airs a lineup of films devoted to the exploration of the craft of acting and the influence it has on the individuals in question. Award-winning period piece The Dresser and 1953 musical gem The Band Wagon are scheduled and 1949’s Dancing in the Dark starring William Powell and Mark Stevens is scheduled as an exempt premiere. In the mid-afternoon, TCM is switching gears for a salute to the one and only Motown. The legendary record label is turning 60 this year, so TCM thought it was only fitting to salute them. The premiere of the 25th anniversary concert from 1983 will be followed by 1975 Diana Ross vehicle Mahogany. TCM keeps on rocking into the night with a salute to rock and roll films as part of the month-long spotlight, Rock, Rock, Rock. John Cameron Mitchell’s ground-breaking cult film Hedwig and the Angry Inch premieres alongside George Lucas’ American Graffiti and pioneering rock documentary Gimme Shelter. On Saturday, TCM wishes Mark Twain a happy 184th birthday with a series of films adapted from the author’s novels and short stories. The 1993 Disney version of The Adventures of Huck Finn will make its debut and previously aired adaptations of Tom Sawyer, The Prince and the Pauper and A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur’s Court will also air. This slate of films will be followed by a double feature of wacky animated and rarely seen favorites, 1970’s The Phantom Tollbooth and 1983’s Twice Upon a Time. Both films display their own unique brand of storytelling to create a world unlike any that could be seen in real life. In the mid-afternoon, The Muppets take over with two premiere films. First Kermit the Frog takes the role of Bob Cratchit in the gang’s 1993 production Muppet Christmas Carol. Then Kermit and Fozzie Bear hit the road in search of fame in the world of show business in The Muppet Movie, a film turning 40 in 2019. The 1940’s at Warner Brothers is the theme of TCM’s The Essentials. The featured films, The Man Who Came to Dinner, Mildred Pierce and Key Largo highlight the strength of Warner Brothers productions during this decade and the performances within them. Lastly, but certainly not least, the exciting, jam-packed week of programming ends with TCM Underground’s salute to Those Depraved Teenagers. Reefer Madness, Village of the Giants and Dr. Goldfoot and His Bikini Machine explore how teenagers were portrayed within the broader aspects of film.

Sunday kicks off with a nice trip to the country. A slate of movies featuring country and rural settings includes the Disney classic Old Yeller and the premiere of the Nicolas Cage neo-noir film Red Rock West will be shown. Leaving the wild frontier of America, we head to the highlands of Scotland for a double feature of films set in the rolling hills of old Albion, The Swordsman and the Academy Award-nominated The Green Years starring 1946 Best Supporting Actor nominee Charles Coburn. Two fantastical features set in fairy tale worlds will be the focus of TCM’s Silent Sunday Nights. This includes the premiere of the 1916 production of Snow White starring Marguerite Clark, the version that inspired a then 15-year old Walt Disney to make his own version of the tale 21 years later. The Adventures of Prince Achmed will also be shown. TCM Imports highlights a tribute to 1940’s French romantic star Gerard Philipe, who had died 60 years earlier in 1959. Devil in the Flesh and Beauties of the Night will be the films highlighted. On Monday, join TCM as they attempt to solve the mystery with a series of films inspired by the game Clue. These include two exempt premieres, 1980 Agatha Christie adaptation The Mirror Crack’d and 1985’s Clue, an adaptation of the aforementioned board game. Other favorites include 1947’s Song of the Thin Man and 1944’s Laura. Even web-footed Warner Bros. star Daffy Duck gets in on the act with the hilarious 1956 short Deduce, You Say! Then Frank Sinatra takes over as the programming shifts to an evening slate of Ol’ Blue Eyes’ most dramatic performances. Sinatra’s Western Johnny Concho and the 1965 WWII classic Von Ryan’s Express make their TCM debuts, and favorites such as Suddenly and A Hole in the Head are also featured. Do you like Freddie Bartholomew? If you said “Oh yes sir!”, then we certainly have the morning of programming for you. The short, but memorable, career of former child actor Bartholomew will be highlighted all day on Tuesday. 1937’s Captains Courageous and 1935’s David Copperfield are among the highlights, while the 1940 version of Swiss Family Robinson will make its debut on TCM. In the evening, Cinderella, newly crowned queen, is TCM’s Special Guest Programmer. Join her as she chats with Ben Mankiewicz about her life and career as well as showing her favorite movies. The lineup includes the TCM exempt premiere of the 1965 television version of Rodgers and Hammerstein’s Cinderella and the film that made Audrey Hepburn a star and earned her an Oscar, 1953’s Roman Holiday. Cindy and her mice friends look forward to sharing these magical films with you! On Wednesday, we’re off! TCM will be showing a selection of films focusing on travel in its many forms - planes, trains and boats. The Palm Beach Story and A Night at the Opera bring the laughs while the 1953 movie Titanic and 1974 ensemble piece Murder on the Orient Express provide just enough drama and suspense. After you’ve recovered from the long journey, you are invited to enjoy an evening of performances by “old souls”. These are the kid characters who act and sound wise beyond their years such as Tatum O’Neal’s Addie Logan in Peter Bogdanovich’s Paper Moon or the blanket-toting philosopher Linus van Pelt in A Boy Named Charlie Brown, an exempt premiere based off one of America’s best-known comic strips. Can you believe the movie will be 50 years old in 2019? Good grief! On Thursday, TCM has planned a real treat! The morning and afternoon schedule will see a slate of films starring the supporting players of Frank Capra’s 1946 holiday classic It’s a Wonderful Life. This seminal movie will be making its TCM premiere following the likes of Ball of Fire co-starring angel-in-training Henry Travers and the premiere of Chicago Deadline starring Donna Reed, the Mary Hatch to James Stewart’s George Bailey. Beulah Bondi, Thomas Mitchell, Samuel S. Hinds and Lionel Barrymore will also be featured in this lineup. In the evening, catch TCM’s new star of the month and November birthday boy Burt Lancaster, as he plays both detective and gunslinger, among other roles, in a block of films highlighting his long and varied career. 1948 noir classic Sorry, Wrong Number and 1983 cult hit Local Hero are among the standouts. Lights, camera, action! Actors take the spotlight on Friday as TCM airs a lineup of films devoted to the exploration of the craft of acting and the influence it has on the individuals in question. Award-winning period piece The Dresser and 1953 musical gem The Band Wagon are scheduled and 1949’s Dancing in the Dark starring William Powell and Mark Stevens is scheduled as an exempt premiere. In the mid-afternoon, TCM is switching gears for a salute to the one and only Motown. The legendary record label is turning 60 this year, so TCM thought it was only fitting to salute them. The premiere of the 25th anniversary concert from 1983 will be followed by 1975 Diana Ross vehicle Mahogany. TCM keeps on rocking into the night with a salute to rock and roll films as part of the month-long spotlight, Rock, Rock, Rock. John Cameron Mitchell’s ground-breaking cult film Hedwig and the Angry Inch premieres alongside George Lucas’ American Graffiti and pioneering rock documentary Gimme Shelter. On Saturday, TCM wishes Mark Twain a happy 184th birthday with a series of films adapted from the author’s novels and short stories. The 1993 Disney version of The Adventures of Huck Finn will make its debut and previously aired adaptations of Tom Sawyer, The Prince and the Pauper and A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur’s Court will also air. This slate of films will be followed by a double feature of wacky animated and rarely seen favorites, 1970’s The Phantom Tollbooth and 1983’s Twice Upon a Time. Both films display their own unique brand of storytelling to create a world unlike any that could be seen in real life. In the mid-afternoon, The Muppets take over with two premiere films. First Kermit the Frog takes the role of Bob Cratchit in the gang’s 1993 production Muppet Christmas Carol. Then Kermit and Fozzie Bear hit the road in search of fame in the world of show business in The Muppet Movie, a film turning 40 in 2019. The 1940’s at Warner Brothers is the theme of TCM’s The Essentials. The featured films, The Man Who Came to Dinner, Mildred Pierce and Key Largo highlight the strength of Warner Brothers productions during this decade and the performances within them. Lastly, but certainly not least, the exciting, jam-packed week of programming ends with TCM Underground’s salute to Those Depraved Teenagers. Reefer Madness, Village of the Giants and Dr. Goldfoot and His Bikini Machine explore how teenagers were portrayed within the broader aspects of film.
