discussion thread at the TCM board.
William Powell is the December Star of the Month, news which is sure to gladden the hearts of countless classic film fans.
Even more exciting to me is the news that TCM has secured the rights to show the beloved Jeanne Crain film MARGIE (1946) -- in prime time on Christmas Eve, no less! I believe Christmas Eve usually features picks by Robert Osborne so he may well have had something to do with TCM licensing this wonderful movie from 20th Century-Fox, which many, many people have been anxious to see.
reviewed MARGIE in 2009.
I'm also very excited that EVERYTHING I HAVE IS YOURS (1952), starring Marge and Gower Champion, is on in December. I've never seen this very hard-to-find MGM musical.
TCM will also debut a new special, A NIGHT AT THE MOVIES: MERRY CHRISTMAS!, on December 6th.
New Year's Eve has an amusing theme: films with a time deadline, including D.O.A. (1950), PANIC IN THE STREETS (1950), and FAIL-SAFE (1964).
I'll have more thoughts on TCM in December after Thanksgiving. In the meantime, October features Buster Keaton as the Star of the Month, and November is a "Battle of the Blondes."
