  1. Yes, he was honored as SOTM in December of 2015 for the 100th, but is He now dismissed?

And his delivery was always so natural, he made me feel as though I were in a discussion of my movie passions with a very dear friend. TCM has gone to great lengths in their attempts to fill the time slots wit

  8. Probably for the 5:30 time slot.
