The Wheeler Dealers (1963) - starring James Garner and Lee Remick

6 posts in this topic

Has this ever been shown on TCM? I remember catching part of it on TV a few years ago, but I can't remember the channel. 

 

The plot has James Garner as a Texas Oils Tycoon who comes to New York and falls for a stock analyst played by Lee Remick. Hilarity ensues as he tries to woo her. 

 

Co-stars John Astin and Chill Wills.

I see. Thank you. I've seen these other films show up at least once or twice over the years but "The Wheeler Dealers" never seems to for whatever reason.

You probably just missed it. While I don't think it's been broadcast since the Gamer memorial tribute, it did air once or twice in the year preceding his death-- because I recorded it. Since TCM's programmers are fond of Garner, it has a good chance of turning up again.

Probably. I will continue to keep an eye out for it.

Maybe it will be on the November schedule. We should be getting the information during the coming week.
