Yes, very good. Uses a script by Rod Serling (previously filmed as a TV drama with Jack Palance). The supporting cast is exceptional-- Mickey Rooney, Jackie Gleason and Julie Harris. Anthony Quinn takes over for Palance and does an admirable job.

& an upbeat ending, as opposed to the other version

I was pulling for Tracy all the way in Fury!   But seriously, he wasn't justified but it was understandable why he did what he did.    Many consider this to be an early noir film.   Regardless of how one classifies the film,  it is a fine film with great acting and lots of tension.    Loved Sylvia Sidney ever since I saw Dead End (with Joel McCrea and Bogart).   

*Katharine Hepburn always found "Fury' a great film & after she saw it she almost immediately wanted to not only meet him, but work with him. She was said-(according to her) to search all mover M-G-M,  but he was at that time filming "The Yearling" in 1941 & in the Florida everglages, which was a failure of course, with King Vidor & *Ann Revere in the cast

I don't see any of these on the 12/18/2017 schedule at tcm.com.  Did I miss something or is this a change?

They're on FilmStruck, which I noted in the post you quoted.

Yeah, I caught that and changed my post.  Never heard of FilmStruck so I was confused and then realized these are posts re: other sources of classic films besides TCM.  My mistake.

FilmStruck is an online streaming source (I believe it is also owned by Turner/TCM). So a lot of those films do show up on TCM-- typically they include Criterion releases; top drawer MGM productions; and European classics. The advantage of FilmStruck, unlike Watch TCM, is the films stay posted for months at a time and of course they're easy to re-watch, in the finest print quality imaginable. I sound like a commercial, LOL, but you get the idea...several other regular posters subscribe to FilmStruck and seem to like it.
