Thanks Barton. I'm surprised A PLACE IN THE SUN has been left off the lists and THE V.I.P.S which TCM likes to show.

I would have included ELEPHANT WALK, an interesting Paramount picture she made in the mid 50s.

This also would have been a perfect chance to do a premiere of THE FLINTSTONES movie she made in her later years, to really give a sense of her career progression.

Some will ask where CLEOPATRA is...one of her most famous roles.

Yes, I'm surprised no VIPs on the  lineup. A PLACE IN THE SUN is Paramount, so I guess harder for TOM to get the rights to. 

I also  think it is  interesting that after SOTM Richard Burton last March, we get Liz this March.

Yes, that's right...he was honored last March. Despite A PLACE IN THE SUN being a Paramount title, they do tend to show it during 31 Days of Oscar and when guest programmers want to select it. It's a key film on her resume so its absence is glaring. They've also shown ELEPHANT WALK before.

But by and large, they're sticking with the films already in the Turner/TCM library.

I wish they would have picked some of Liz's later films from the 70s, but at least they didnt stop at Virginia as they usually do. Still have never seen Hammersmith is Out, Driver's Seat, Ash Wednesday etc.........
