This Week on... TCM (October 13-16)

Boy, am I late this week! I didn't get a chance to compile my TCM picks for the week on Sunday, so half the list is obsolete already! Here are a few interesting titles for the last half of the week:

Wednesday, October 13
Fingers At The Window (1942) 4:15 PM
Tension (1950) 3:00 AM

Thursday, October 14 (a few Hitchcock titles)
I Confess (1953) 12:15 PM - Starring Montgomery Clift and Karl Malden
Stage Fright (1950) 2:00 PM
The Wrong Man (1956) 4:00 PM - Excellent Hitchcock movie based on a true story
Dial M For Murder (1954) 6:00 PM
Murder She Said (1961) 12:00 AM - Miss Marple mystery
The Band Wagon (1953) 1:30 AM - Very good musical starring Fred Astaire, Oscar Levant, and Cyd Charisse. The highlight is 'The Girl Hunt,' which must have been one of Michael Jackson's favorite musical moments. He worked some of words and dance steps directly into several of his songs and routines (from the Dangerous era mostly).

Friday, October 15 (theme: Hammer Horror)
Million Dollar Mermaid (1952) 12:00 PM - Esther Williams
The Mummy (1959) 8:00 PM
Repo Man (1984) 2:45 AM - Surreal punk cult classic
Foxes (1980) 4:30 AM - This looks trashy and Scott Baio is in it!

Saturday, October 16
High Sierra (1941) 12:00 PM
Giant (1956) 2:00 PM - It is, but don't let that stop you from watching this movie!
