This Week on... TCM (September 12-18)

Last week was an all-time low for my TCM viewing. I meant to watch a few films but only managed one, Get Carter. Unfortunately, I didn't love the movie that much. Hopefully, there will be a better selection of movies this week!:

Sunday, September 12
Royal Wedding (1951) 8:00 AM - Starring Fred Astaire, June Allyson, and the ever dapper Peter Lawford! This is the movie that has Fred's amazing dance on the ceiling.
Lassie Come Home (1943) 2:30 PM
Sex And The Single Girl (1964) 8:00 PM - I watched a few minutes of this movie the last time TCM aired it, and I happened to catch a part that took place in an automat! This lead me to IMDb on a quest to find more movies that automat or cafeteria scenes. A list will follow here soon!

Monday, September 13 (theme: Claudette Colbert and In Memory of Patricia Neal)
It Happened One Night (1934) 6:15 AM - Classic Frank Capra comedy. I wrote about the movie a bit here.
