March schedule this week, just a couple of weeks after releasing the February schedule.
The March Star of the Month will be Karl Malden. The films shown will include A STREETCAR NAMED DESIRE (1951), for which he won the Academy Award as Best Supporting Actor, and ON THE WATERFRONT (1954), for which he was nominated again in the Supporting category.
Other Malden films being shown in March are Hitchcock's I CONFESS (1953), BOMBERS B-52 (1957), and GYPSY (1962). TIME LIMIT (1957), which Malden directed, is also on the schedule.
Fans of PAN AM will want to be sure to catch Malden in the very entertaining COME FLY WITH ME (1963).
One of the real treasures showing in March is Frank Borzage's HISTORY IS MADE AT NIGHT (1937), starring Jean Arthur and Charles Boyer. This very unusual film, combining romantic comedy, heart-tugging drama, and disaster film, is not to be missed.
A relatively little-seen John Ford film, THE RISING OF THE MOON (1957), will be shown on St. Patrick's Day. The movie stars Tyrone Power, who also starred in Ford's THE LONG GRAY LINE (1955).
Ford's DRUMS ALONG THE MOHAWK (1939), starring Henry Fonda and Claudette Colbert, also airs on TCM in March, along with a number of other Ford films.
It's great to see that TCM has been licensing more films from 20th Century-Fox, including the previously mentioned DRUMS ALONG THE MOHAWK. Fox titles airing in March will also include the comedy FOR HEAVEN'S SAKE (1950) with Joan Bennett, Bob Cummings, Clifton Webb, and Edmund Gwenn; and Webb's MR. SCOUTMASTER (1953), costarring Frances Dee.
I'll share more information on the March schedule sometime around March 1st.
