January 23 Daytime

It's Saturday again! They seem to be done with Bulldog Drummond, but Popeye is back, and there are animated shorts , musical shorts, comedy shorts, travelogues and another episode of a Tarzan serial that's been running all month. A little family fare but mostly more serious movies. Here are all the features:

Fugitive in the Sky (Jean Muir, Warren Hull) (Warner Bros., 1936)
Black Legion (Humphrey Bogart, Erin O'Brien-Moore) (Warner Bros., 1937)
Red River (John Wayne, Montgomery Clift) (United Artists, 1948)
East Side, West Side (Barbara Stanwyck, James Mason) (MGM, 1949)
Desperate Search (Howard Keel, Jane Greer) (MGM, 1952)
Take the High Ground! (Richard Widmark, Karl Malden) (MGM, 1953)
The Best Man (Henry Fonda, Cliff Robertson) (United Artists, 1964)

January 23 Primetime Robert Mitchum Double Feature

Out of the Past (Robert Mitchum, Jane Greer) (RKO, 1947)

The other movie is Night of the Hunter, which airs earlier in the month. So far as I make my way through the month, this and Critic's Choice are the only two non-Noir Alley movies to air more than once in January.

And speaking of Noir Alley:

Born to Kill (Claire Trevor, Lawrence Tierney) (RKO, 1947)

Then two late night films linked by having very similar titles. One of them is It Should Happen to You, which I'm pretty sure also aired during the Columbia spotlight of the Studio System theme. So, that would be third non-Noir Alley movie to get a second airing this month. The other is:

It Could Happen to You (Nicolas Cage, Bridget Fonda) (Tri-Star, 1994)

No The Moon and Sixpence or The Razor Edge?      In some ways that is a good thing since these two films are well known (well to us in the know),  and TCM will be showing the other well-known films based on his work like Rain,  The Letter and Of Human Bondage (but for me the Howard \ Davis version is the IT version).

I have a first edition of The Moon and Sixpence.    I just re-read it a few months back (Covid reading),  since the book is now 100 years old!  (and still in good shape).     

PS:  If TCM included those two films it might have looked more like a Hebert Marshall tribute than one for Maugham!

The Fox movie might be prohibitive for TCM to air more than once a blue moon. I don't know about the status of the other.

So true (and you also got in a moon reference,  bravo!).      Yea,  most films are part of the so called Turner library of films (WB, RKO, MGM).    Trio is a British film and one I haven't seen so that I'm looking forward to.      Note that Trio is 3 separate short stories by Maugham,  and the last one  Sanatorium features Michael Rennie and Jean Simmons.

January 12

The Studio System theme continues. Daytime is all RKO.

Swing Time (Fred Astaire, Ginger Rogers) (1936)
Love Affair (Charles Boyer, Irene Dunne) (1939)
Citizen Kane (Orson Welles, Joseph Cotten) (1941)
The Set-Up (Robert Ryan, Audrey Totter) (1949)
His Kind of Woman (Robert Mitchum, Jane Russell) (1951)

And primetime is 20th Century Fox. Hooray!

Connecticut Yankee (Will Rogers, Maureen O'Sullivan) (1931)
The Little Princess (Shirley Temple, Richard Greene) (1939)
The Mark of Zorro (Tyrone Power, Basil Rathbone) (1940)
Down Argentine Way (Don Ameche, Betty Grable) (1940)
The Ghost & Mrs. Muir (Gene Tierney, Rex Harrison) (1947)
Gentlemen Prefer Blondes (Jane Russell, Marilyn Monroe) (1953)

Could Disney be loosening up enough to start sharing the old 20th Century Fox film catalog? At least with TCM, if not other outlets? I live in hope....
