If it was in black & white and shown on TCM, it might have been Screen Actors, part of a series put out by the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts & Sciences and distributed by the individual studios during a two year period. Sometimes these are listed under the heading "The Movies and You". This particular title included shots of Reginald Denny, Gail Patrick, and Dan Duryea. It was distributed by MGM with Hal Elias credited as supervisor and released May 13, 1950.
