Not sure what to title this thread but wanted to have someplace to update people on TCM schedule changes for Canadians. A place to notify people who may not be aware of film substitutions for Canadians because the originally scheduled TCM movie is blacked out in Canada due to rights issues. For example, tonight, April 4 at 8:00 p.m. "Ruby Gentry" is not available for TCM Canadians. Instead, we get "Behave Yourself!" from 1951: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Behave_Yourself! Saturday, April 5, at 6:45 a.m., TCM Canucks get Hitchcock's "Bon Voyage" instead of "Screen Director's Playhouse." Sunday, April 6, at 2:00 p.m. we don't get "Charly," but "Night Must Fall" instead. Then, at 12 midnight, we get "The Prisoner of Zenda": http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Prisoner_of_Zenda_%281922_film%29 instead of "Old San Francisco." Before "Twenty Four Eyes" at 2:00 a.m., we get a Mary Pickford short instead of "Angora Love." At 4:45 a.m., we get "Lionpower from MGM" instead of "MGM Parade Show #27." Monday, April 7, at 11:30 a.m. we get "The Las Vegas Story" instead of "Forbidden Games." TCM Canucks can see changes by checking out the TCM website: www.tcm.com/schedule/canada/ and/or the "Now Playing" guide denotes films unavailable for Canadians - but not what is replacing the blacked out films. I subscribe to "Now Playing" so will try and do the entire month when I have a chance...
