Thanks. The only ones I'm interested in are It Grows On Trees (Irene Dunne'e last film) and Here Come the Nelsons. Didnt know they did a film! Was this what kick started the television show? Hope I don't forget to record them..

It looks as if IT GROWS ON TREES has been pulled from the schedule. That's a shame: this world needs all the Irene Dunne we can get.

Thanks for the update on It Grows on Trees, that's disappointing.

I edited the list of premieres above to remove it.

My updates are posted for this month. 
http://www.moviecollectoroh.com

I figured it was easy enough to add the day of the month, just as it is on the TCM monthly schedule, but only for the "premieres" report.  I could probably plug it in for the "10 years" report too, but haven't yet.  Those two reports both contain temporary data which is completely replaced each month, but I have no plans to save this for the long term.  Also I wouldn't be able to do this for any past months, as I simply never picked up that information to begin with, so I'm not even going to try (over 124,000 records and counting).  :D

Very dull film but worth watching for the beautiful Maggie Cheung.

The scheduled premiere of Ebirah, Horror of the Deep (1966) on Friday October 11 has been replaced with Son of Godzilla (1967) (not a TCM premiere).

I have removed Ebirah, Horror of the Deep from the list of premieres above.

A few other changes in the October premiere schedule:

Oct 25 - Beyond the Valley of the Dolls (1970) removed - currently a gap in the schedule

Oct 28 - the Paul Muni film Stranger on the Prowl (1953) removed  - remaining films shifted earlier, Coma (1978) added at end of the day's programming as filler

Oct 29 - the Julie Andrews film That's Life (1986) removed - currently a gap in the schedule

I have removed Stranger on the Prowl from the list above.  Will wait on the other two to see how the gaps are filled.

You may wish to check back on the 18th, when there seems to be a two-movie-long gap in the schedule between All Monsters Attack at 8PM and Rodan at 1AM. I suspect Ebirah and Godzilla vs Hedorah will fill the gap, but who knows?

Yeah the schedule can do that.  Also there may be periods where a movie disappears, then only reappears after somebody calls it a film, but I wouldn't have thought of these as likely culprits.

It appears that Destroy All Monsters (1968) 2:45AM ET is a premiere. 

Tune in to watch Godzilla, Mothra, Rodan, King Ghidorah, Anguirus, Minilla, and more slap each other around.

Gotta hand it to the Japanese for their innovation.  This looks like it's the Royal Rumble of movie monsters!  My money's on Ghidorah.

I was confused about the schedule last night.  Instead of "replacing" Ebirah, Horror of the Deep with Son of Godzilla, there was actually just a gap in the schedule.

- Previous schedule:

Ghidorah, the Three-Headed Monster (1964)
Invasion of Astro-Monster (1965)
(P) Ebirah, Horror of the Deep (1966)
Son of Godzilla (1967)
(P) Destroy All Monsters (1969)
Ghoulies (1985)

- Last night's schedule:

Ghidorah, the Three-Headed Monster (1964)
Invasion of Astro-Monster (1965)
<gap>
Son of Godzilla (1967)
(P) Destroy All Monsters (1969)
Ghoulies (1985)

Did anyone watch during the "gap" to see what was actually broadcast?  (I wish TCM would list a TBA placeholder in the schedule so we can see where the replacements will go.)

I watched It Grows on Trees on YouTube this summer, and sorry to say, for Dunne's last film, you're not missing much. Sort of felt like a Disney live action family fantasy film with a preposterous premise that you just have to roll with. It's pretty one-note.

Thanks Yancey.  Maybe there's a chance we'll get to see some of the other "missing" films as well.

We can talk about this offline if you want, I'll leave that up to you, but their monthly schedule seems to be behaving a bit different now.  A burned out vacuum tube on their IBM 650 perhaps? :P

Yes, it's getting harder to find good punch-card operators these days 😉

Now that I know to check for gaps, I won't immediately assume that a title has been dropped from the schedule.  Whatever the cause, it seems to be showing up in the daily, weekly, and monthly schedules consistently.  Would be nice if they could get this fixed.  Hopefully the on-screen cable guides are correct on the day of the show?
