Hello, TCM Forum members. The June 2016 schedule is now up. Marie Dressler is the SOTM, and there are features on Stage-to-Screen adaptations of both plays and musicals, and a continuing Friday night tribute throughout the month devoted to the films of Billy Wilder. Candice Bergen is the Guest Programmer. http://www.tcm.com/schedule/monthly.html?tz=est&sdate=2016-6-01 http://www.tcm.com/schedule/weekly.html?tz=est&sdate=2016-06-01 http://www.tcm.com/schedule/weekly.html?tz=est&sdate=2016-06-08 http://www.tcm.com/schedule/weekly.html?tz=est&sdate=2016-06-15 http://www.tcm.com/schedule/weekly.html?tz=est&sdate=2016-06-22 http://www.tcm.com/schedule/weekly.html?tz=est&sdate=2016-06-29
I saw this for the first time tonight. I realized part way through that this was the original version of the Grace Kelly/Alec Guiness/Louis Jourdan movie that I adore and find irresistible. A.G. was hilarious This is a much more fun film to watch than Black Legion which I watched earlier tonight. Lillian Gish is the princess and of all people, her mother is played by Marie Dressler. I found this hard to get past as they do not look to me as if they could be mother and daughter. I enjoyed the film, but it doesn't hold a candle to the remake from 1956 in my opinion. I say this knowing full well that I am a fan of everyone involved in the remake. I admit this. And finally, I succeeded in watching two PVR recordings that I planned to watch once and then delete to try to cut down on my PVR. ......Granted, being that this movie is short and I'm recording movies overnight, this isn't decreasing the volume much...... Oh, well.
