February, of course, means the annual 31 Days of Oscar lineup. 2016 is a leap year, so I anticipate that the Oscar lineup will conclude on March 2nd.
February is always a great month for those who are newer to classic films to catch up on a wealth of great titles. And of course, there are dozens of great films for the rest of us, although the requirement that all films shown in February be Oscar nominees naturally means that the schedule is fairly predictable.
FRENCHMAN'S CREEK (1944). I saw this Mitchell Leisen film at UCLA last year and very much enjoyed Joan Fontaine and the beautiful Technicolor. I'm looking forward to seeing it again!
I'll have more to share about the February schedule around the end of next January!
In the meantime, Norma Shearer continues as the November Star of the Month. Looking ahead, TCM celebrates the Frank Sinatra Centennial in December, and the January Star of the Month is Fred MacMurray.
