Daytime February 2 Says the theme is Groundhog's Day, apparently in honor of the movie more than the day, as they are essentially the same movies over and over again, as far as I can tell from the plot descriptions. In the morning, it's all movies about being snowed in.

Snowed Under (George Brent, Genevieve Tobin) (Warner Bros., 1936)
The White Tower (Claude Rains, Glenn Ford) (RKO, 1950)
Avalanche Express (Lee Marvin, Robert Shaw) (20th Century Fox, 1979)

And then afternoon is all spring break movies:

Spring Madness (Margaret O'Sullivan, Lew Ayres) (MGM, 1938)
Where the Boys Are (George Hamilton, Yvette Mimieux) (MGM, 1960)
Palm Springs Weekend (Troy Donahue, Connie Stevens) (Warner Bros., 1963)
Ski Party (Frankie Avalon, Dwayne Hickman) (AIP, 1965)

Oh joy....

Plan 9 for Outer Space, The Swarm, The Conqueror, Change of Habit , Food of the gods, and The Silver Chalice on the same night.... The Elvis film is harmless and maybe Silver Chalice might be a bit better than claimed but.... 🤢🤢🤢

What night (and day) is it???

Or Myra Breckenridge or The Oscar. But that's tempting too much ill fate there. I see where in that book originally published in the late 70s the reader's pick for Worst Film of them all was actually Exorcist II: The Heretic, which just reminds me of a story I shared about that film once before and am sharing again now. 

 

LMREO! I'd forgotten about this incident! Some justice at least.

    null

    Dir: Ernst Lubitsch. Actors: Monte Blue, Patsy Ruth Miller, Lilyan Tashman.
    Runtime: 80 mins Genre: Comedy Rating: null
    Color: false .. AR: 1.33 : 1 .. Letterbox: false .. CC: false

What is weird is that this was only issued in VHS by public domain company Grapevine Video. Normally TCM doesn't show anything anymore that hasn't been somewhat restored.

2021-02-21   8:00 PM    Only Yesterday (1933)
This Universal title would be a TCM premiere, per moviecollectorOH's database....

 

2021-02-22     12:00 AM    So This Is Paris (1926)
This also would be a TCM premiere. It briefly was scheduled earlier this year, but may have been an error. Crossing my fingers....

2021-03-01     12:00 AM    Walk Cheerfully (1930)
Another TCM premiere?

Thanks again for the good work!

Only Yesterday (1933) and So This is Paris (1926) have never been on Blu or DVD, so I don't know about them. But Walk Cheerfully (1930) is in the Criterion collection, so it is probably legit.

Primetime February 4 Month-Long Theme: Kiss Connection. I guess the idea is someone who gets kissed in one movie kisses someone else in the next one. I'm listing the films chronologically by release date, so the kiss chain won't necessarily be obvious here.

My Favorite Wife (Cary Grant, Irene Dunne) (RKO, 1940)
Ball of Fire (Gary Cooper, Barbara Stanwyck) (RKO, 1941)
To Have and Have Not (Humphrey Bogart, Lauren Bacall) (Warner Bros., 1944)
The Two Mrs. Carrolls (Humphrey Bogart, Barbara Stanwyck) (Warner Bros., 1947)
Love in the Afternoon (Gary Cooper, Audrey Hepburn) (Allied Artists, 1957)
Charade (Cary Grant, Audrey Hepburn) (Universal, 1963)

What about Leave Her to Heaven.  One can't fault Gene Tierney for not loving her husband!

I thought the problem was that she loved her husband too much.

First the father than the husband.    Too bad that she didn't feel that way for this guy.   Oh,  well who needs a brother-in-law.

I agree. Also I noticed THE HEIRESS popping up. They always cough up the dough to lease that one from Paramount for Oscar month to showcase Olivia de Havilland's winning performance.

So either they will have to ante up again when Oscar month occurs, or there will be less films from outside the Turner Library since they already used up their budget.
