Kicking it off at 6AM EST:

 

OFF THE RECORD (1939) with Pat O'Brien

THREE GIRLS ABOUT TOWN (1941)

THERE'S ALWAYS A WOMAN (1938) with Melvyn Douglas

THE AMAZING MR. WILLIAMS (1940) again with Melvyn

GOOD GIRLS GO TO PARIS (1939) and with Melvyn again!

 

Have breakfast with Joan Blondell!

 

And as if that wasn't fantabulous, check out what follows the Joan fest:

THE CLAY PIGEON--rare and great noir film!!!

A SLIGHT CASE OF MURDER--uproarious Edward G. Robinson gangster spoof!!!

 

TCM rocks out on Tuesday!

Yes I've been looking forward to this day. *Off the Record* and *There's Always a Woman* have been on my want list for quite a long time. It will be good to see some of the others too. It's great to see these films scheduled. Joan Blondell is a favorite of mine.

Lynn,

I've had some rough times. They are not over yet. It took me until now to get out of my depression about that, but I'm sort of out of it, but still struggling.

Classic films help, BIG time, as well as the community here.

Much appreciation to you and Archie for all your support, that is very kind and heartwarming.

I had to work but I had two Vcrs and the DVD recorder programmed before I left. I recorded all five and hopefully got them all. I will probably watch one each night. The last two nights I watched *Bullets or Ballots* and *Havanna Widows* so it looks like I'll be on a Joan kick this week. I'm really glad TCM scheduled these because I had never seen any of the five shown today.
