    TCM to discontinue print editions of Now Playing

    Do any of you have any of the now playing guides that date back to the early Cable TV days of TCM that you could try and find a film that aired on there back then that I've been trying to find for years? So, about 10 to 15 years ago (maybe even longer) on TCM I saw an old 30's or 40's horror movie and have been trying to figure out the title ever since, so I could possibly find the movie. It was introduced by the late great Robert Osborne and it was about a man and woman who are in love, but the woman's father or uncle is jealous of them and orders his henchman to kill the man. The way I remember it, the father or uncle guy lives in a creepy tower like castle with a spiral stairway similar to the one's seen in Universal's Frankenstein and Dracula, and the man is attacked by the henchman and thrown from the castle (either from the roof or a window, I can't recall) and into the water surrounding the old place. The woman tries to confront her father or uncle about the disappearance of her boyfriend on the stairway, but he hypnotizes her to forget about him and stay there with him. The boyfriend doesn't die though and floats down a river (or something) and is found by a male gypsy who nurses him back to health. The hero and the gypsy became good friends and when he mentioned his plot to get revenge on the man that tried to have him killed, the gypsy tried to talk him out of it with some talk about revenge not always being the right way to go. The gypsy was just trying to get his carriage back with the rest of his fellow gypsies and asks the hero to forget about his revenge and come with him, but he couldn't sway him. So, he helps the hero get back the castle/tower and they part ways. While the hero returns to the castle to confront the evil father or uncle. Can anyone help me identify this film?

    Title for an old horror film

    Can anyone help? This aired back in the Cable TV age on TCM, so I couldn't just click on a menu to check and find out what the films was titled like in the DirectTV age we live in now... and I didn't think the movie was going to be so good otherwise I'd have recorded it on my VCR.

    Title for an old horror film

    I remember it mostly because of the Svengali like control the father or uncle had over the girl after her confrontation with him on the stairway.

    I guess it was more a drama film, but it still had that old school Universal horror movie feel to it. But no, the gypsy only nurses him back to health and then helps him get back to the old guys castle/tower for his revenge... the guy ends up with his girl in the end.
