They had started a trend for a handful of years where they were spotlighting a performer best known for horror roles in October, but I see the last two years were Rita Hayworth and Paul Muni. But back to it with Cushing this year.

There's a baseball game starting in three minutes, so I will have to wait and check out this schedule tonight. I'm also seeing the other thread headline about Olivia DeHavilland, which I will also have to get back to later.

Ordinarily, they don't update these on weekends.  Oddly, although the Women in Film schedule is up elsewhere, there are still blank spots in the schedule, along with one Wednesday evening.

The highlight of the month, for me, is that TCM is showing The Werewolf (1956).

Trying to see this movie has been like looking for a needle in a haystack these past 40 years.

The Presidential Biopics night on the 14th would probably be the one I like most. 

I am glad to see WILSON (1944) on the schedule.

It's a shame  that they seem to be showing The Conquerer Worm, which is  the American version of Witchfinder General. I don't mind Vincent Price reciting Poe's poem over the credits; it's the loss of the original British score that  I lament. The original music score by Paul Ferris is integral to the plot of this seminal movie. There are good, uncut prints of the original available, wish TCM would show it that way.

Thanks for the schedule. October is not my favorite month. They used to show musicals in October in addition to horror films.

I am looking forward to seeing theLon Chaney, Sr. Films on  October 14th.

They're showing The Howling, a movie on my list of movies to see.  I suppose one October they'll show The Shining, Angel Heart and/or Bram Stoker's Dracula. 

The Ascent and Daisies are must sees for this month.  They can't appear on TCM too often.  (Well I suppose they can, but it's not likely TCM ever will.)

You are welcome. October is the Anti-Christmas month on TCM.

You missed listing the Peter Cushing movie scheduled after HAMLET: the 1940 Laurel & Hardy feature A CHUMP AT OXFORD. (Yes, Peter Cushing is in that one, and it is being run as part of the Peter Cushing tribute).
