I'm very surprised these "series" have not been spotlighted earlier. (at least this many of them shown together)
I think most of them are great productions, very well acted & fun. As a kid, these were the first movies I could digest-they had simple entertaining plots, strong charactors and were short enough for my attention span.

Maisie is a particular favorite. I thought Ann Southern was adorable. When I got older and first saw Joan Blondell, I yelled out "Maisie!" but was soon corrected.

Our movie group just screened GREAT GILDERSLEEVE ON BROADWAY and TARZAN'S NEW YORK ADVENTURE as a double feature and the audience just went wild over them!

I still think this concept is lame. Having worked in radio, we seldom could get away with playing the same artist more than a "Twin Spin" or "Double Shot." TV shows are the same way. Just how many episodes is too many? More than TWO! Same for movies. May 1st is SIX Blondie movies. That's 8 hours of television I want nothing to do with. I also think TCM could cut loose with a west-coast feed. Prime-time starts at 5 PM out here. While I have a DVR, it is nice to watch in real-time. Going all the way back to my Betamax, I would record something and never watch it. Same applies to my DVR.
