CONFIDENTIAL (1997), "Star Trek: The Original Series" and "The Rockford Files." Ernest Borgnine with his frequent stunt double Bob Herron on the set of CONVOY (1978)
  2. Disney Legend Ruthie Tompson dies at 111 (!) Tompson worked in the paint and ink department on the production of SNOW WHITE AND THE SEVEN DWARFS (1937) and BAMBI (1942), and as a scene planner for the animated sequences in MARY POPPINS (1964), among many other classics produced by Disney from the 1930s to the '70s.

  6. There's currently a gap in the schedule at 8:00PM eastern on November 10 (FLAMINGO ROAD starts at 10:00PM), so hopefully RUTHLESS will make it onto the schedule after all. I'm also surprised THEY DIED WITH THEIR BOOTS ON isn't scheduled here. Greenstreet doesn't have a big role in that one, but TCM has programmed all of his other films in the Warner library for this series.
  7. Wednesdays in November November 3 THE MALTESE FALCON (1941) with Humphrey Bogart and Mary Astor ACROSS THE PACIFIC (1942) with Humphrey Bogart and Mary Astor CONFLICT (1945) with Humphrey Bogart and Alexis Smith THE HUCKSTERS (1947) with Clark Gable and Deborah Kerr PASSAGE TO MARSEILLE (1944) with Humphrey Bogart and Michéle Morgan November 10 FLAMINGO ROAD (1949) with Joan Crawford and Zachary Scott THE WOMAN IN WHITE (1948) with Alexis Smith and Eleanor Parker MALAYA (1949) with Spencer Tracy and James Stewart BACKGROUND TO DANG

  9. According to a couple of in-the-know sources, a likely aspect of this "refresh" is shifting TCM's studio production from Atlanta to the Warner Bros. studios in Los Angeles. This would cut down on production costs considerably, with no need for flights and easier access to Hollywood-based talent and film history resources. Considering that all five permanent TCM hosts now live on the west coast (Ben, Jacqueline, Dave and Alicia in Los Angeles, Eddie in San Francisco) this would make a lot of sense logistically. The network has previously used a studio in NYC for Robert Osborne beginning in 2011
  10. My guess is they're rebranding the network's name, emphasizing the "classic" part (evidenced by the "C" at the end of the promo) and eliminating "Turner." The Turner brand has been getting phased out in relation to all of the WarnerMedia properties since the AT&T buy-out in 2018. This sounds like a big nothingburger to me. A lot of cosmetic changes perhaps, but nothing substantive in relation to the network's on-air presentation. I don't see a standalone streaming service on the horizon for TCM, as the network already has a streaming relationship with HBO Max for U.S. audiences.
  11. Lucille Ball's life and career is the subject of season three of TCM's The Plot Thickens podcast, premiering this fall, so presumably her being SOTM in October is a tie-in with that.
  12. More specifically, I think the theme here is the last movies of famous on-screen couples. These are the final films Flynn & De Havilland, Bogart & Bacall, Astaire & Rogers and Tracy & Hepburn made together.
  13. Sundays in September, full schedule to come... September 5 BODY AND SOUL (1925) TBA September 12 SHOW BOAT (1936) SANDERS OF THE RIVER (1935) September 19 SONG OF FREEDOM (1937) KING SOLOMON'S MINES (1937) September 26 TBA
  14. My top five favourite Hitchcock films, in no particular order, are: The Wrong Man, I Confess, Shadow of a Doubt, Lifeboat and Frenzy. I don't think you can go too far wrong by showing any of those to someone who is new to Hitchcock / classic movies. There's nothing inherently wrong with North by Northwest, Rear Window, Foreign Correspondent, The Lady Vanishes and most other genuine classics Hitchcock directed, but I guess I just didn't respond those ones quite as much. As for Vertigo and Psycho, I've seen both films repeatedly and have never understood what the fuss is about.
