I'm glad to see The Red Shoes coming around again. PBS Great Performances just showed Matthew Bourne's ballet and it made me want to watch the movie more than ever.

I just watched that two nights ago on DVR.  I'm not a big ballet fan, but it was really entertaining.

Looks like this schedule is still a work in progress.

According to the Noir Alley website, November's Noir offerings are:

11/6 Five Steps to Danger

11/13 The Lineup

11/20 Johnny O'Clock

11/27 Tight Spot

Saturdays- I'm interested in seeing some of the Torchy Blaine movies scheduled.

11/4  The infamous Torch Song is scheduled.  I haven't seen this one, I'm definitely recording it.

11/5 Ladies of the Chorus.  A very early Marilyn Monroe film that I haven't seen.

11/8 The Long Night.  It has Henry Fonda, Barbara Bel Geddes and Vincent Price.  The phrase "sadistic lover" is in the synopsis.  This sounds intriguing.

11/11 The Fighter Squadron.  Not a big war movie fan, but I'm intrigued by the cast: Edmond O'Brien and Robert Stack.

11/12 Experiment Perilous.  The cast (Hedy Lamarr and George Brent) is whatever, I am intrigued by the synopsis: "A small-town doctor tries to help a beautiful woman with a deranged husband.") Further investigation reveals that Paul Lukas might be the deranged husband.

11/12 The Rain People.  This film also sounds intriguing.  A bored housewife hooks up with a hitch-hiker apparently.

11/15 A Sailor-Made Man.  A "new" Harold Lloyd film that I haven't seen.

11/18 That Way With Women.  I like Dane Clark and I haven't seen this film.

11/18 Green Mansions.  This is such a weird film that I keep trying to watch and I don't get it. But I want to for some reason.

11/19 King of Cool documentary.  I am guessing that this is about Dean Martin.  I am interested in this.

11/20 The Professionals.  A Burt Lancaster and Robert Ryan film I haven't seen

11/22 The King's Thief. An Ann Blyth movie I haven't seen

11/26 I'm here for the day of Ernst Lubitsch and The Rat Pack

11/29 Deadline at Dawn. A Susan Hayward movie I haven't seen.

 

Overall, this looks like a pretty decent schedule.  We'll see how it looks when it's complete.

Primetime November 1  I have zero idea what the connecting theme could be between these movies, and TCM doesn't provide them anymore in advance. Young love? Random MGM movies? (Let's be honest. Given that it's TCM, the latter is more likely)

Small-Town Girl (Jane Powell, Farley Granger) (MGM, 1953)
West Side Story (Natalie Wood, Richard Beymer) (United Artists, 1960)
Fame (Eddie Barth, Irene Cara) (MGM, 1980)

In the middle of the night, there's the follow-up entry to the MGM That's Entertainment! documentaries:

That's Dancing! (Hosted by Gene Kelly, Liza Minelli and others) (MGM, 1985)

11/29 Deadline at Dawn. A Susan Hayward movie I haven't seen.

 The Long Night is a remake of a 1939 French film by Carne, Le Jour Se Leve, with Jean Gabin in the role played by Fonda in the American version. If I recall correctly, the remake is an almost scene-for-scene copy of the French film. The original is better, in my opinon.

Deadline at Dawn is well worth your time. Based on a Cornell Woolrich story, with the author's usual fantastic concidences and nightmare-like quality. The icing on the cake is the screenplay by the one and only Clifford Odets, This is my second chance today to mention one of my favorite screenwriters. Cinematography by Nick Musuraca.         Yummy

Primetime November 2  Again, I have no idea what the connecting theme is. They're all Euro films, intially from Soviet bloc countries, but then moving into German/Austrian films. I have no idea of the connection beyond that. Valerie and Her Week of Wonders is something of an arty softcore porn film, as I recall, not from having seen it, but from my younger years when it seemed to be important to at least be aware of such things. It gets a late night slot. 

Ashes and Diamonds (Zibignew Cybulski, Ewa Krzyzewska) (Dist. in the US by Janus Films, 1961)
Young Torless (Matthieu Carriere, Marian Seidowsky) (Dist. in the US by Universum Films, 1966) 
Something Different (Eva Bosakova, Vera Uzelakova) (Dist. in the US BY Impact Films, 1971)
Valerie and Her Week of Wonders (Jaroslava Schallerova, Helena Anyzova) (Dist. in the US by Janus Films, 1974)|
Alice in the Cities (Yella Rotlander, Rudiger Vogler) (Dist. in the US by Bauer International, 1977)
Love is Colder Than Death (Ulli Lommel, Hanna Schygulla) (Dist. in the US by the Criterion Collection, 2013)

The Long Night is a remake of Le jour se leve, two films I love for different reasons. The French original has Jean Gabin, Pierre Brasseur as the villain who trains performing dogs, and Arletty as the woman Gabin sleeps with but doesn't love. This is one of the classic French films noirs, beautiful and downbeat.

The Long Night has Henry Fonda in the Gabin role, now a returning soldier. Vincent Price plays the villain, now a magician. Ann Dvorak plays the woman Fonda doesn't sleep with but would if the censorship code would let him. The role of the innocent girl, which doesn't register strongly in the original because the actress can't compare with three of the greatest French film actors ever, is built up and much better defined in the American version for Barbara Bel Geddes, and thus the balance between the characters is better in the remake, which also has Elisha Cook, Jr. as an added bonus. Jean Gabin plays proletarian roles as if this was the world he grew up in. Henry Fonda's proletarian heroes, as in The Grapes of Wrath, always have a certain pathos because we can also see the successful middle-class man the character could have been under other circumstances.

Someone who used to post on this forum urged me to see The Long Night, and I have always been glad that she did.

For newer poster(s) scratching their heads in bewilderment, as a service to the community, I have an automated web page that displays a bit further out than the official web page (scroll to the bottom).  It is refreshed during the daytime each day.  Layout is my own.
https://www.moviecollectoroh.com/nightly/sched-new.htm

Furthermore, poster cmovieviewer integrates info from the live schedule and my monthly database-driven reports into something more simple to read.
http://escapepress.com/tcmsched/tcm_overview.html

Both of these links are persistent and won't change from month to month.

The first pass at the schedule overview for November will be published on October 1 (typically starting one month in advance).  At this point the TCM information for November is very preliminary.  The overview documents are updated periodically as TCM adds to / modifies the schedule.

This November, we honor Sydney Greenstreet as our Star of the Month,

Adam Shankman joins us with a spotlight on dance numbers and Francis Ford Coppola discusses his early work.

The month also brings retrospectives on the works of Dean Martin, Gordon Parks and more!

The song featured in our November This Month On spot is "Ride on Time" by The Bamboos.

Look for these films on Watch TCM at http://tcm.com/watch.

:)
