The Saint's Vacation and Spy in Black belong to the WB/MGM/RKO library and are in pretty regular rotation on TCM. Reunion in Vienna has not been on since 1995 for the same reason that Alias French Gertie has not been on in this century. The prints are lousy. But both belong to "The TCM library" or whatever you want to call it.  A couple of these films  (Soul of a Monster for example) are part of the Columbia library of older films that TCM had access to until about 2010. You'll probably never see them on TCM again, because "the new boss" AT&T probably wants to spend the minimum possible on TCM. If they axed Filmstruck for the fun of it with nothing on tap to replace it, then nothing would surprise me.  I'm actually surprised the hosts are still around.

The government broke up the Bell system in 1984 because it had too much power, and now IT'S BACK and it has more power than ever and is just as big a monopoly, and is just as if not even more evil than 35 years ago.

I assure you, it is more evil.

Woke up this morning believing my recorder captured “The Madness of King George” (1994) only to find “Calamity Jane” (1953). :blink:

 

 Duped again.

If you had kept up to date diligently reading this message board, you would have known it beforehand. What thread was it mentioned in? Either "Now I'm Really Mad" (about Canada vs US schedules) or possibly Ohio's "Premieres"?

This board is rather informational about classic movies shown on TCM if you can weed through the snarky arguments.

Well remember TIKI.....

Those snarky arguments are mostly in the "off-topic chit chat" place.  ;)
