Two Turkish film premieres on TCM, in the wee hours

Two Turkish films are on TCM overnight tonight, both premieres: Law of the Border (1966) and Dry Summer (1964). Dry Summer sounds particularly interesting to me. Here's an essay about it from its Criterion release:

It's great to have the opportunity to see (or rather record, since presumably I'll be asleep) these two rarities!

Just watched Law of the Border.  It really does play like a Western--better than a lot of them.  Only a lot less sentimental.  The director, Lutfi Akad, sure has a fine style, spare and intense.  Too bad they had so little to work with in restoring the print.  But I'm glad we have it at all.

Anyone stating it's a bad print is an understatement, restoration will cost a kings ransom. Lol with the sheep stepping on land mines. (that's something we don't see often)
