Personally, I like LOVE IS NEWS a bit better and would do cartwheels if that had been scheduled.


I thought for sure MOTHER IS A FRESHMAN would have been selected, but no.


Of the Fox titles that made the cut, we have the rare KENTUCKY and WIFE, HUSBAND AND FRIEND. So that's good for viewers. I think SUEZ has been shown on TCM in the last two years.


None of her Paramount or Universal films from the 1940s and 1950s will be shown for this 100th birthday celebration. I highly doubt they will ever pop up on the Encore channels. This is where Universal needs to collaborate with TCM more.

Geez, and after Stanwyck in December.....Is TCM trying to make 100% that I'll include them in my will? If so, this is sure as hell the best way to go about it. That's the best back-to-back SOTM picks I've seen in the three and a half years I've been paying attention. Pre-Code Heaven is an understatement.

>Does anyone know if TCM has ever shown Zoo in Budapest? I've wanted to see that one for eons.........


Yes, it aired a few times about two or three years ago. I assumed it would be in regular rotation. But I believe it is a Fox title and rather rare.

> I know TCM aired ZIB at least once (I think it was in 2010). I've also seen it on FMC (in 2004). It may have been on the schedule other times too.


> Great choice for SOTM!




Good memory, it aired on December 5 (technically the 6th) at 345am Eastern time in 2010.

i'm sorry Zoo in Budapest is not included. I've always been curious about that one. The White Parade too.


The Accused (1949) was for a time available on youtube. I watched it, it's a weird movie. There's a pretty brutal attempted rape scene (this is post-code, post-oscar Loretta Young here!) that Johnny Belinda paved the way for the year before. After that, it gets really silly with a lot of voice-overs and cheese sauce.


I'm glad they're including some of her pre-code, trampy stuff.




"Ya gotta love bite on yer neck, Loretta. Cover that damn thing up! "

With Connie Bennett in November and Barbara Stanwyck in December, I doubted TCM would feature an actress as star of the month for three months in a row (though it's probably happened before). And not only is it great they are honoring Young in her centennial month, but there are lots and lots of pre-Codes, when Loretta was at her most effective (and ethereal!). An inspired choice, one I've championed for several months.
