This week on... TCM (August 28 - ??)

The weather outside is frightful, so why not ride out the rest of the hurricane indoors with Ben Mankiewicz and the TCM team? Lights are flickering a lot, so I'll just post the first half and edit this later to include the beginning of September.

Sunday, August 28, 2011 (CAROLE LOMBARD)
To Be Or Not To Be (1942) 6:15 PM
My Man Godfrey (1936) 8:00 PM - A highly rated comedy starring real-life couple William Powell and Carole Lombard in which an aristocrat is mistaken for a forgotten man. I can only take so much Carole Lombard, though..
Mr. And Mrs. Smith (1941) 1:00 AM - This Hitchcock movie has nothing to do with that Brad Pitt/Angelina Jolie movie. At all.

Monday, August 29, 2011 (ANNE FRANCIS aka Honey West, who died earlier this year)
Funny Girl (1968) 5:00 PM
Blackboard Jungle (1955) 8:00 PM - My Mom recommends this movie about hoodlums.

Tuesday, August 30, 2011 (HOWARD KEEL)
Lovely To Look At (1952) 12:30 PM - The Roberta remake
Annie Get Your Gun (1950) 4:30 PM - Except for that ONE song, this is a fun musical!
Seven Brides For Seven Brothers (1954) 9:30 PM - Bless yore beautiful hide! I only recently discovered that my favorite bride, Dorcas, was played by Julie Newmar!

Here's the TCM September 2011 schedule as I've seen it..

Friday, September 2, 2011
To Sir With Love (1967) 6:30 AM - You know you're a pretty great teacher if Lulu sings a song about you! Possibly Sidney Poitier's best movie, and that's saying something since he's pretty great!
Mr. Peabody and the Mermaid (1948) 8:00 PM - This sounds like Splash starring William Powell and Ann Blyth.
