schedule isn't very different from the schedules for July, August, or September, truth to tell. The channel seems to have mostly given up on incorporating fresh titles into its rotation.
Given the repetitious nature of the channel's recent schedules, this month's list of FMC highlights will be quite short.
...The Michael Shayne film BLUE, WHITE AND PERFECT (1941) plays on October 1st. Lloyd Nolan plays Shayne, with Mary Beth Hughes costarring.
...The marvelous FALLEN ANGEL (1945) will be shown on October 10th. This wonderful noir stars Dana Andrews, Linda Darnell, and Alice Faye. Some of the film was shot in the city of Orange, California, right here in Orange County.
...Clark Gable and Susan Hayward star in SOLDIER OF FORTUNE (1955) on October 11th. This is a rare film which I don't recall having played in recent weeks. Edward Dmytryk directed.
...Also on the 11th: Marie Windsor stars in THE DAY MARS INVADED EARTH (1962). Kent Taylor costars.
...The multi-story TALES OF MANHATTAN (1942) will be shown on October 17th. The all-star cast includes Rita Hayworth, Ginger Rogers, Charles Boyer, Henry Fonda, George Sanders, and more.
...FLAMING STAR (1960) is an Elvis movie which costars Barbara Eden. It will be shown on October 21st.
...EVERYTHING HAPPENS AT NIGHT (1939) is a chance to see Ray Milland and Bob Cummings costarring 15 years prior to appearing together in Hitchcock's DIAL M FOR MURDER (1954). Sonja Henie costars on October 22nd.
