Canadian TCM and the Thin Man

2 posts in this topic

Greetings,

How did TCM Canada lose the rights to the Thin Man films?

Tonight they all play in the US -

and here in Canada we get  dubious substitutions including one starring George Hamilton!

What gives?

I have yet to see a TCM moderator address your question (I.e. leasing rights issues for specific films).

But yea, this is a strange one since these are MGM films and like Warner Bros and most RKO films, they were all part of the former Turner library of films that are now owned by TCM's parent company.

So yea, TCM Canada;  what gives?       (oh, no,  all I hear is silence!).
