I'm a big fan of RKO westerns. I especially love BLOOD ON THE MOON. For some reason I've never seen ROUGHSHOD.

Yea,  nice line up of westerns with a noir theme.    Blood on the Moon is a fine film,  with good performances all around.     Robert Preston was perfectly cast utilizing his charming screen persona but getting to show a much darker side.         The rest of the supporting cast is also first rate;  Brennan,  Phillis Thaxter (someone I've really have come to appreciate in the last few years),   and Tom Tully.    (and of  course Robert Mitchum,  does what he does best).     Well directed by Robert Wise (someone 10 years ago I wouldn't have mentioned as a top director,  but I would today).

I wished TCM was also showing Pursued.   I assume they have easy access to this Warner Bros western.    Oh well,  still a nice line-up.

I agree that PURSUED (1947) would be a good addition to the lineup. So would THE FURIES (1950).

I bet THELMA & LOUISE is another one that was intended for Oscar month.

Daytime February 20. In the morning, it's Saturday Matinee. I'm just listing the features.

Quick Money (Berton Churchill, Paul Guilfoyle) (RKO, 1937)
Dr. Kildare's Strange Case (Lew Ayres, Lionel Barrymore) (MGM, 1940)
Sinbad the Sailor (Douglas Fairbanks, Jr., Maureen O'Hara) (RKO, 1947)

Then random programming in the afternoon:

Mad Love (Peter Lorre, Frances Drake) (MGM, 1935)
Shadow of a Doubt (Teresa Wright, Joseph Cotten) (Universal, 1943)
The Guns of Navarone (Gregory Peck, David Niven) (Columbia, 1961)
The Sunshine Boys (Walter Matthau, George Burns) (MGM, 1975)

Insert: I really screwed up this post by leaving out about 12 hours' worth of programming. I think the double airing of the Noir Alley feature messed me up. I left out all the movies between the two airings. So, I am editing to fix as best I can. If you saw the original post, just try to forget it!

Primetime February 20 Sidney Poitier Birthday Tribute. My gosh, the first night of the Memorable African-American Performances month-long spotlight is devoted entirely to Poitier movies, so we've got two nights of nothing but Sidney this month. Well, it's just two movies this time, because we've got to get to Noir Alley.

Lilies of the Field (Sidney Poitier, Lilia Skala) (United Artists, 1963)
Guess Who's Coming to Dinner? (Spencer Tracy, Katharine Hepburn) (Columbia, 1967)

Noir Alley: 

It's listed on the website as Sangre Negra with no further identifying information than the year of release. I think it must be Native Son, which comes up as one of your options if you do an imdb search for Sangre Negra. Also, the trailer on imdb has a blurb from one Eddie Mueller extolling how great the film is, so I'm pretty sure this is it. Although it has American actors, it appears it was an Argentinian film.

Native Son (Richard Wright, Jean Wallace) (Dist. in the US by Classic Pictures, 1951)

Then the rest of the night is more random Saturday programming. All or most of these films were Oscar-nominated, right? I think they were more fare originally intended for 31 Days before TCM knew the actual Oscars weren't going to be in February.

Manhattan Melodrama (Clark Gable, William Powell) (MGM, 1934)
Diner (Steve Guttenberg, Daniel Stern) (MGM, 1982)
Avalon (Elizabeth Perkins, Aidan Quinn) (Tri-Star, 1990)

Daytime February 21 

The Corn is Green (Bette Davis, John Dall) (Warner Bros., 1945)

Then a rerun of last night's Noir Alley.

Then we continue the random movie weekend. Again, these were probably all originally intended to be part of 31 Days of Oscar programming.

Trouble in Paradise (Herbert Marshall, Miriam Hopkins) (Paramount, 1932)
Born Yesterday (Judy Holliday, William Holden) (Columbia, 1950)
The Fortune Cookie (Jack Lemmon, Walter Matthau) (United Artists, 1966)
The Remains of the Day (Anthony Hopkins, Emma Thompson) (Columbia, 1993)

Good idea for a theme. Obviously RAIN MAN was meant for Oscar month.

SOUNDER and A SOLDIER'S STORY are Oscar-type films. Glad they will be broadcast. Surprised GLORY wasn't also included.

Yes, it's a film TCM has shown a number of times before, and it was an absolute breakout performance for Denzel Washington, in my opinion.  I'd already seen him in Cry Freedom, but he was so different in this movie, I didn't recognize him. I was like, "Who IS this guy?"
