November schedule online!
Instead of the normal Star of the Month, November will be a "theme month" focusing on silent stars every Monday evening, with films featuring Mary Pickford, Clara Bow, Gloria Swanson, Pola Negri, Greta Garbo, Rudolph Valentino, Ramon Navarro, George O'Brien, Janet Gaynor, and many more. Harold Lloyd's THE FRESHMAN (1925), reviewed here last month, is also on the schedule.
One of the most interesting things on the schedule is a primetime salute to Richard Dix in the Whistler films, with five Whistler films airing on Wednesday, November 19th.
November will also include a whopping ten-film birthday tribute to Joel McCrea on November 5th and an eight-film birthday tribute to Dick Powell on November 14th!
November themes include Russian royalty, animal movies, and troubled teenagers, plus military films on Veterans Day, November 11th.
The Friday Night Spotlight seems to focus on hitch-hikers, with everything from WILD BOYS OF THE ROAD (1933) to THE HITCH-HIKER (1953) to HOT RODS TO HELL (1967).
I'll be sharing more detailed information about the November schedule around November 1st.
Melvyn Douglas is on tap for the September Star of the Month, with Janet Leigh in October.
