The "When was the last time a movie played on TCM?" thread

84 posts in this topic

So many people ask when the last time a particular movie played on TCM I thought I'd start this thread and have a single place to search. So go ahead and ask. I'm pretty sure you'll have the answer pretty quickly!

The Jolson Story (1946)  --  I think it debuted on TCM in 2006, possibly in honor of the film's 60th anniversary.

Thanks, MovieCollector.  I hope that wasn't the one and only airing.

:lol:

So, when was the LAST date? (wasn't that the question?  :rolleyes: )

OK, so, when was the last time TCM showed PRESSURE POINT, the Poiter/Darin flick from '62?

I think this is an interesting thread topic, and I don't want to torpedo it by saying moviecollectoroh has an online database that would answer all your questions, so I'm gonna pretend like I'm the only one who knows about it.

The Jolson Story last aired in February, 2014.

Pressure Point last aired in September, 2012.

I didn't think so, or else I would have answered it differently, wouldn't I.

I have a gray market DVD of "The Wild Party" (1929) starring Clara Bow. It has a TCM watermark in the corner. When did it play on TCM?

Also has "The Unholy Night" (1929) starring Dorothy Sebastian ever played on TCM, and if so, when was the last time?

The title of the thread could be read as, when was the last time a movie played on TCM, because movies no longer play on TCM. LOL

Okay! Now I can't remember its title, but it starred Shirley Booth and she's in some small southern town while it's really really warm and muggy.

So when's the last time THIS movie was shown on TCM?

(...I'm asking this for a friend of mine around here, btw)

;)

Another poster mentioned awhile back that it's been a LOOOOOONG time since TCM played ANGELS WITH DIRTY FACES. I wonder why.

OH yeah, THAT'S it! "Hot Spell"!!!

Ooooh, my friend ain't gonna be too happy hearin' this, Lawrence

Well, unless of course he's had his TV set tuned to TCM all day.

(...kind'a doubt it though...he's been sayin' lately he's all through with this channel)

I think someone is having a bit of sport!

Hot Spell is a Paramount Picture. It may be a very long time (if ever) before it shows on TCM!

I have no record of MY PAST ever being shown. At least as far back to December 2006.

I was joking (obviously, I thought) about Hot Spell.

However, MovieCollectorOH's database shows My Past has shown at least 5 times, with September of 2014 and November of 2005 dates listed.

See if your Sept 2014 schedule was retrieved before Sept 29, 2014 (that is the date it was last scheduled in my records).  They had the entire month to pull a switcheroo.

I sit corrected!  Yes, it's there.  Not sure what the glitch was. I've got to do my searches more carefully.?

That other poster was me! Standing up and strutting around the room with the pride that someone actually read one of my posts ...
