Meanwhile Canadians with TCM, as usual, don't get access to Hal Roach Studios, therefore get stuck with the Bowery Boys. What have we done to be so punished?

You're Canadians.  Do you really have to ask?  :P

I saw it a year or two ago.  It was made by Desilu.  I believe that's why Welles appeared on I Love Lucy.

The pilot received a Peabody award, the only unsold pilot to do so thus far.

It's a shame Desi Arnaz didn't stick with Desilu longer.  Would have been interesting to see what would come of it.

Laurel & Hardy SOTM - Replaced in Canada with the Bowery Boys

 

MusicBox1.png

6:12 p.m.  The Music Box (1932).  Oscar winning short.

 

2ccc561298a14151965d61b352942e29

10:45 p.m.  Our Relations (1936).  This is my favourite Laurel and Hardy feature where they play mis-matched twins.  By Leo McCarey when he was at his best.

Someone on the other thread speculated that TCM has had the list internally and was waiting for the LoC to make their announcement before updating their online schedule.  This would seem to confirm that, as they would need more time than 24 hours to get these discussions between Jacqueline Stewart and Carla Hayden ready for air.

DuKvA0sWwAAOjxr.jpg

4 a.m.  The Silent Partner (1978).  Christopher Plummer makes a pretty good villain in this one.  John Candy and the beautiful Celine Lomez co-star.  Shot in part in Toronto’s newly built Eaton Centre.

Replaced in Canada with the Jim Brown film, The Slams (1973).

I've never seen either film you mention here Bogie, but I think it's rather odd that a movie shot partially in Canada and co-starring one the Dominion's comedic icons cannot be seen north of the 49th.  Well, I guess it beats a TV screen with a test pattern on it.  😐🎅

The Silent Partner was a Canadian production but it may have had some establishing shots that placed the story in the U.S..  I cannot recall right now.  

I have a dvd of it.

The story no doubt takes place in Toronto.  But is based on a book in which the story takes place in  Copenhagen, Denmark ("Think Of A Number" by Anders Bodelsen)   It is one of the movies on my short list of "Movies better than the books"  And is a purely Canadian production right down to excellent Canadian jazz pianist OSCAR PETERSON providing the score.  Luckily, I have this flick on both DVD and tape and won't have to try to catch it in what I consider the middle of the night.  ;)

10 p.m.  Lady on a Train (1945).  with Deanna Durbin and Ralph Bellamy.

I liked this movie.  It was like a screwball film noir.

Yea,  well done comedic noir film.    Also a first rate cast with other actors,  many just starting to make-it,  like Dan Duryea.

Also the lovely Patricia Morison (playing the not-so-nice gal she was so good at playing).
