Hi "SSOS" -

 

In case you really are wondering, *The Electric Horseman* has been on TCM at least three times. Unfortunately, I can't place any specificity to when these showings occurred. I think the presentations happened at least two years ago.

 

The film was shown during a salute to Robert Redford -

Also during an evening of films "Directed By Sydney Pollack"

(Besides *Horseman*, this tribute included *The Way We Were*, *Absence Of Malice* and *The Scalphunters*.)

 

and during a past "31 Days of Oscar" event when *The Electric Horseman* was included in an evening devoted to "Best Sound Nominees"

And color me surprised that TCM didn't have access to *Out Of Africa* (or chose not to include it) in this coming Monday's event.) The film has popped up on TCM at least twice a year for the last five years. Or so it seens. On the one occasion that it would be a truly welcome presentation, it isn't being shown.

 

Personally, I still would have enjoyed a day full of replays of his Essentials selections. I know there had to be at least six or seven titles from those seasons that TCM has access to on such a short notice. ( *Wuthering Heights*, *Rear Window*, *Singing In The Rain*, *Casablanca*, *Citizen Kane* ) He even introduced *Tootsie* as an "Essential" during his second season as host.

 

Now, if TCM has Robert Osborne introduce Sydney Pollack's "Essential" presentation of *Tootsie* on Monday night, _that_ waould be a really special event.
