Wow!  You guys are cooking up quite a list here.  Anybody giving odds on what we're most likely to start seeing soon?

I know this is a real piece of fluff, but every once in a while I get a yen for a movie that AMC used to show regularly.  Bob Hope, Virginia Mayo, Walter Brennan, and Walter Slezak in "The Princess and the Pirate."  TCM might have shown it once or twice, maybe, but not recently as far as I can remember.  

 It just cracks me up when I watch it.

Probably never.

The Princess and the Pirate.

(1944).  Last seen on TCM February 2020.  Shown 17 times so far, so there is hope (get it?) to see it again.

Yes, where is our friend? I haven't seen him in a  while. He's a good guy.

Maintaining his TCM movie database!     All kidding aside he is a very good guy.   The value added by having a database so that concerns about TCM programming can be dealt with from a factual basic is very helpful.    E.g.  how many post 1990 films have TCM shown in the last 4 months?   What percent of overall films  is  this?   etc....

(of course facts still don't stop endless debates,,    oh well).

The moment I purchased a DVD recorder in 1998, TCM stopped showing ALL THE FINE YOUNG CANNIBALS '60-previously on regular rotation. 😠

1934's WONDER BAR was also on TCM regularly, but obviously offended somebody, so that's been pulled too.

I don't think TUCKER was ever shown on TCM, there's even trouble finding the DVD. I think it had something to do with Joe Jackson's soundtrack. (I love Jackson but the movie shouldn't be held hostage)

Many of the films on the list are readily available on DVD & may be found at your local library.

Why would it be so hard to see Dishonored or The Man on the Flying Trapeze?  TCM does show semi-regularly all the best picture winners before The Sound of Music, and then the next six before The Godfather.  Why not show Ragtime or Last Year in Marienbad?  And not showing Tabu or Napoleon is just wrong.
