Anchors Aweigh instead of Goodfellas.  My goodness.

I'm from the U.S.,& so really have no business in this topic--but WHY all the replacements???  It can't all be rights issues; in your first listing, "Rich, Young, and Pretty" (1951 Minor MGM musical) & "Gigi" (1958 last major Arthur Freed musical) are both from the same studio!  What's the problem?

Good question. As I understand it -- and my understanding of this is limited at best -- it does all come down to rights. Films like TOPPER RETURNS and CAPTAIN FURY are always replaced because the rights to the Hal Roach Studio are owned by a different entity than in the U.S.

 

As for films like GIGI, I cannot really account for why that film would be replaced. The best explanation I can offer is that many individual films have different owners in Canada than they do in the States. Thusly, TCM has to negotiate the rights to air many films twice -- both in the U.S. and Canada -- and they are occasionally unsuccessful in this endeavor, resulting in the numerous replacements Canadian viewers are subjected to each month.

Thanks for putting these on one page.  It has been so long since I have seen Foreign Correspondent.  Interesting how the replacements are not even the same genres.

 

I was sorry to see last month that Gigi was no longer available on TCM.  They aired Madame Bovary instead to honour Louis Jourdan.
