This week on... TCM (February 20 - 26)

Blow-Up (1966) 4:15 AM - Michelangelo Antonioni's suspense thriller set in Swinging London. Stars David Hemming as a fashion photographer who may have inadvertently captured a murder on film and Vanessa Redgrave as the potential murderess. With a cool psychedelic soundtrack including The Yardbirds in the party scene. Also features Jane Birkin. This movie was remade several years later as Blow Out with John Travolta. He may or may not have heard a murder. A 2012 remake called Blow-Dry is in preproduction. It stars Mark Wahlberg as a hairstylist who may or may not have smelled a murder.
In Cold Blood (1967) 12:45 PM - Excellent neo-noir based on a true story. I highly recommend the Truman Capote book. You don't get a lot of noirs that take place in rural Kansas, do you?
The Third Man (1949) 3:15 PM - One of Orson Welles' finest works.
