I've long wanted to see "So Ends Our Night".  ... Good cast, timely subject, but unfortunately hard to find.

An evening program of films based on Erich M. Remarque novels -- "All Quiet on the Western Front," "The Road Back," and "So Ends Our Night"  -- would be very good, I think. The latter two have never aired on TCM, I believe.  (Trivia: Remarque was the fourth and last husband of Paulette Goddard.)

I've seen SO ENDS OUR NIGHT, but it was awhile ago. I probably rented the disc from Netflix or Classic Flix back in the day. 

It's on DVD and can be purchased on Amazon, though it is a bit pricey.

I recall enjoying it. The performances are excellent.

As I wrote in another thread I don't think they did a very good job with the Fredric March tribute. They took the cheap way out, using films in the Turner library that air on TCM every year. And the films they did pick from outside studios are because of certain directors (Lubitsch) or producers (Selznick) NOT because they are picking films that showcase what a varied career March had with extraordinary performances across studios. 

THE BUCCANEER (1938), MAN ON A TIGHTROPE (1953) and THE DESPERATE HOURS (1955) are all fine choices they overlooked. Films which give us added perspective on the type of actor and star he was.

It would seem so. That's how it's listed on the March monthly schedule. A marketing gimmick, where they will use the image of him going mad as Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde.

I guess TCM had to use Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde because March was never in a sports movie.

If only he had starred in Tall Story.

What part would he have played-- the coach? Or maybe Tony Perkins' father? :)

Happy about the March series, as Anthony Adverse is my favorite film of all time.  It has one of the most sophisticated musical scores of any Hollywood film. In their excellent book American Film Music, Darby and Du Bois devote 20 pages to an analysis of the score.

I've seen So Ends our Night, it used to be on television fairly regularly. Not sure if it has been on TCM.

You can catch MAN ON A TIGHTROPE on January 9 as part of the Elia Kazan series.

The following is the status of Fredric March films listed by TopBilled as not playing in his TCM SOTM tribute. As you can see, the problem seems to be that March spent a bunch of time at Paramount in films now owned by Universal or Paramount, and they just don't seem to care about what happens to their classics. If a film is not digitized or in poor shape there is really not much TCM can do about it.

THE DUMMY (1929) - A print of this film survives in the UCLA Film and Television Archives.
THE STUDIO MURDER MYSTERY (1929) - exists on VHS quality DVD - owned by Universal
PARIS BOUND (1929) - exists on VHS quality DVD - ownership unknown/may be public domain

No idea. Maybe it wasn't available in the right (digital) format.
