This Week on... TCM (September 19-25)

It's a packed week on TCM, and I have to say, I think it looks like it's going to be a really good one!

Sunday, September 19
Show Boat (1951) 8:15 AM
With Six You Get Eggroll (1968) 2:00 PM - Doris Day and Brian Keith with a young Barbara Hershey
Rome Adventure (1962) 3:45 PM - Another movie about falling in love in Italy, which is practically a genre in itself. This one stars the delightful Suzanne Pleshette.
Mogambo (1953) 6:00 PM - A remake of Red Dust starring Clark Gable, Ava Gardner, and Grace Kelly
Wait Until Dark (1967) 8:00 PM - Okay, but I really can't wait to finally see this!
Dial M For Murder (1954) 10:00 PM - I love this Hitchcock classic!

Monday, September 20
Topper (1937) 1:30 PM - Cary Grant!
Sherlock Holmes In Terror By Night (1946) 4:30 PM
Secret Beyond The Door (1948) 6:00 PM - Oooooh, a creepy Fritz Lang movie!
The Prowler (1951) 8:00 PM

Tuesday, September 21
Look Back In Anger (1958) 9:30 AM - It takes place in front of the kitchen sink. This must be the Richard Burton version that is actually from 1959, according to IMDb.
The Fugitive Kind (1960) 1:15 PM - I can't wait to see this!! It's Marlon Brando and Anna Magnani (also with Joanne Woodward)! Another one written by Tennessee Williams.
Irma La Douce (1963) 5:30 PM - Billy Wilder film with Jack Lemmon
Waterloo Bridge (1940) 12:00 AM - I highly recommend this movie. It is a beautifully tragic film about two star-crossed lovers who meet during an air raid. It stars Robert Taylor and Vivien Leigh.
A Yank At Oxford (1938) 2:00 AM - And if you liked Robert Taylor and Vivien Leigh in one movie, here's another.

Wednesday, September 22
Friends And Lovers (1931) 1:00 PM - A pre-code film starring Laurence Olivier, Lili Damita, and Erich von Stroheim.
This Is Spinal Tap (1984) 1:45 AM - This is brilliant!
What's Up, Tiger Lily? (1966) 3:15 AM - A must for any egg salad enthusiast! Incidentally, if you thought the Lovin' Spoonful scenes detracted from the movie, you might be interested to note that Woody Allen completely agreed and was none too happy about about being forced to include them. From then on, Woody Allen insisted on full control of all aspects of his films.
Hold On! (1966) 4:45 AM - Herman's Hermits were better than the Lovin' Spoonful, at least!

Thursday, September 23
You're Only Young Once (1938) 2:15 PM - In which time laughs at Andy Hardy.

Friday, September 24
Conflict (1945) 11:00 AM - A bleak sounding Humphrey Bogart movie!
The Sting (1973) 9:45 PM - Again!
The Devil Within Her (1975) 3:15 AM - No, it's not The Exorcist or Rosemary's Baby. But it's similar, which makes one wonder: what was it about the 1970s and these movies about spawning demonic children? Was it merely one too many bad acid trips or just some strange societal craze? Either way, this movie looks like some good trash.

Saturday, September 25
The Penguin Pool Murder (1932) 6:00 AM - From TCM: 'A feisty school teacher sets out to solve a murder in an aquarium.' Wow!
The Mouse That Roared (1959) 9:00 AM - Classic Peter Sellers farce
A Streetcar Named Desire (1951) 8:00 PM - This was JUST on.. Argh, and I know that I won't be able to resist watching Marlon Brando in his sweaty t-shirt again!
Cat On A Hot Tin Roof (1958) 10:15 PM - It's a Very Tennessee Williams night.. At least you can marvel at all the weird names and all the dysfunctional, creepy family problems.
Suddenly, Last Summer (1959) 12:15 AM - Now, this is my favorite Tennessee Williams work. And, this is one of my favorite Katharine Hepburn films and one of my favorite Monty Clift movies, as well! It's truly disturbing.
Sweet Bird Of Youth (1962) 2:15 AM - I mostly liked this for Paul Newman. He looks very good in this movie. The movie itself.. meh (in my opinion).

Also, Keepers Of The Frame, the film restoration documentary I talked about in this post, will air Sunday, September 19 (that's today!) at 4:00 PM. Don't miss your chance to watch this! And, this week on TV will include both the season premieres of 30 Rock and The Big Bang Theory as well as the series premiere of Running Wilde (check this post for more info on that).
