*Hello, First, I cannot tell you how much I enjoy TCM!*

*I have purused the entire site and very perplexed that the movie Christmas in Connecticut*

*with Barbara Stanwyck is not scheduled to play this month. I could have overlooked the listing, but, feel sure that I searched extensively. I found the movie scheduled to play on AMC.*

*Did I miss the listing?*

*Just wanted to let you know...............*

 

*Sincerely,*

 

*Sherri Capps*

Sherri,

 

Welcome to the message boards!

 

TCM has to rent all the films it shows and the holiday season is a popular time for many different cable networks to run classic holiday themed films.

 

Some years TCM is able to rent *Christmas in Connecticut* and some years, like 2012, other networks prevail.

 

Hopefully, next year the film will be back on TCM!

Apparently A-commercial M-commercial C-commercial has it this year.

I prefer REMEMBER THE NIGHT, without commercials. This is a wonderful movie. And TCM has plenty of commercial-free Christmas movies this year. :)

Yup. Apparently, all those commercials gives it awfully deep pockets when it comes time to bid for the broadcast rights to Christmas movies.

Well, heck, Sherri, just call me up and I'll recite it to you! I love that movie so much I watch it all through the year. There's not a line I don't know, including Uncle Felix's "kuch-kuch" Hungarian slang. It's a terrific movie. So if TCM doesn't show it, I pop it in the tape player and off we go. This allows me to back it up and look for the nonexistent bar in the den off the living room by the front door. It comes and goes in the movie.

 

Anyway ... I have it on hand for this year, but I cheated and watched it before Thanksgiving. I wonder if that's against the rules?

Dothery

 

 

Maybe you can help me then. I remember a line describing how to get to the house as being "the station after Wilton on the Danbury spur (railroad)" or something like that. I can't remember who says it and where in the movie. It's not in the copy I have and I haven't heard it on TV the last few times I've seen it. Was I hallucinating?

 

 

Also, I read on another site that the character was based on Gladys Taber, but my mother says it was Poppy Cannon. Ms Cannon used to live near Georgetown, CT, which was the stop after Wilton back then (and had a war materials factory). Hence the reason why I remembered the line.
