Looking ahead to Friday's Yves Montand mini-schedule in Now Playing...was happy to see "Tout Va Bien"..but upon a closer look at my Dish Network schedule it has been replaced by "The Devil by the Tail"...disappointing...where can you find an explanation of changes to the printed schedule?

A late change of this type is typically due to a problem with the film distributor not being able to deliver the film to TCM. That could be a "print" problem of some kind or a "leasing" problem. (TCM thought it had leased the film but something changed.) Hopefully arrangements can be made for TCM to show the film in the future.

 

The substitution of *Devil By The Tail* is network-wide and not only for DISH subscribers. TCM doesn't post an official "explanation" when these "last-minute" changes occur but I am sure it shares your disappointment.

> looks like *One Way Passage* is being aired instead of *King's Row* on Sun. @6am ET

 

This is because of Daylight Savings Time beginning. The five Clifton Webb films on tonight (plus a short or two) fit into a ten-hour block. Normally, that would run from 8:00 PM ET to 6:00 AM ET the next morning. However, since we move the clocks ahead by an hour tonight (except for you wackos in Arizona ;) ), that runs from 8:00 PM ET tonight to 7:00 AM ET tomorrow.

 

So they had to replace a movie that fits in a 135-minute time slot with one that fits in a 75-minute time slot.
