TCM Daytime Themes

A few notes--

 

If I can't figure out the daytime theme by looking at the online schedule, I will post what it might be. And if I can't even take a decent guess, I will put question marks...and hopefully someone else will come along and tell us.

 

Also, some daytime programming covers multiple themes (more than one director or performer), so I will separate those with / slashes / like / this.

 

For Saturdays, I will just list the serial or B-film series that might be playing.

 

Usually there are never any daytime themes on Sundays. It seems to be miscellaneous programming using titles from the TCM/Turner Library.

Thanks Top Billed for the encapsulation of the daytime themes.   I will usually suss the schedule out on-line and look for the common factors re: directors, topics or actors.   Sometimes I access "famous birthdays" for a hint if I cannot figure anything else out.

Did you figure out September 9th? There are some Harry Beaumont films, then the rest of it seems kind of random.

I got intrigued about taking a stab at it, but that only led to instant heartache and frustration as I have zero idea how to actually find the November schedule. Can't find a thread so titled anywhere, and doing a thread search for those words produces nothing productive. Can you provide a link?

 

In the thread titled What Happened to the Natalie Wood Thread?, I see Film Lover 293 commenting on some individual movies playing that month, but darn if I can find any actual link to the November schedule within that thread, so I have no idea where s/he got that info.

The mystery deepens as I continue searching. You miss a lot around here if you don't check in for a few days! Looks like an Administrator merged two threads, mistakenly believing they were pretty much the same thing, when in fact they weren't. Now that merger can't be undone. I believe somehow as a result of this merger, a link to the November schedule, which I'm pretty sure actually existed on this website at one time, has disappeared. I don't think it exists anymore. If it does, it's too damn hard to find. I've been trying for close to 45 minutes now.
