TCM was the subject of this evenings, (7:30 where I live) Final Jeopardy.

 

The Answer was TCM began it's history by showing this film on April 14, 1994?

 

(I think most people out there know the answer. However, only two contestants did, including the one who kind of came off like a valley girl.)

I don't think Orson Welles said that directly to Turner, and don't know if he said those exact words:

Allegedly, Welles said something to the effect to Henry Jaglom, shortly before Welles passed away.

 

Do I get a caramel candy apple or something???

I located the quote which is attributed to Orson when speaking with Henry Jaglom,

 

About two weeks before his death, and almost a year before Turner acquired the rights to the MGM catalog, Welles had asked filmmaker Henry Jaglom,

 

* "Please do this for me, Henry. Don't let Ted Turner deface my movie with his crayons."*
