 It was interesting viewing a pre-bearded Gerry Mulligan in JAZZ on a SUMMER'S DAY. Though generally associated with the "pastel" of cool jazz, Mulligan looked and sounded all fire engine red in his 1958 Newport segment:

Since the TCM online schedule doesn’t show themes anymore, it can be difficult to figure out what the common thread is throughout the day.  (The TCM monthly Now Playing Newsletter still lists the themes.)

It suddenly dawned on me that the daytime theme for tomorrow (Jan. 20), “Guys Named Joe,” is a tribute to Inauguration Day.  (Sometimes I’m not the sharpest knife in the drawer.)

Here is the lineup shown in the way the programmers intended:

    TCM DAYTIME - GUYS NAMED JOE
    06:00 AM   drama    Ode to Billy Joe (1976)
    08:00 AM   comedy   Polo Joe (1936)
    09:30 AM   comedy   The Fabulous Joe (1947)
    10:45 AM   war      The Story of G.I. Joe (1945)
    12:45 PM   suspense  Joe Smith, American (1942)
    02:00 PM   romance  A Guy Named Joe (1943)
    04:15 PM   musical  Pal Joey (1957)
    06:15 PM   adventure  Mighty Joe Young (1949)

This is followed by the “Whodunit Wednesdays” primetime theme which goes on throughout the evening.

This schedule proves without a doubt that TCM's programming department leans liberal. 

Don't tell Nipkow.
