Quick Preview of TCM in March

The March schedule for Turner Classic Movies is now available online.

Merle Oberon is the March Star of the Month.

Over two dozen Oberon films will be shown in March, including classics such as THE SCARLET PIMPERNEL (1935), THESE THREE (1936), and WUTHERING HEIGHTS (1939). Other enjoyable Oberon films on the schedule are THE COWBOY AND THE LADY (1938) and THE LODGER (1944).

The next night of Treasures From the Disney Vault will be on March 9th, a nautical-themed evening which includes 20,000 LEAGUES UNDER THE SEA (1954) and LT. ROBIN CRUSOE, U.S.N. (1966).

A particularly fun evening features sisters Joan Fontaine and Olivia de Havilland each starring in a film based on a Daphne Du Maurier novel, Joan in FRENCHMAN'S CREEK (1944) and Olivia in MY COUSIN RACHEL (1952). Joan, of course, caught a huge break starring in Du Maurier's REBECCA (1940), which won a Best Picture Oscar.

March will include multi-film tributes to Jean Harlow, John Garfield, William Holden, Cyd Charisse, Claire Trevor, Joan Crawford, George Brent, Louis King, Nick Grinde, Akira Kurosawa, Steve McQueen, Dirk Bogarde, Warner Baxter, and Jean Muir, who also has several films on the schedule in January.

March themes include Easter, Hawaii, painters, and, of course, St. Patrick's Day!

I'll be sharing information about the March schedule in more detail at the end of February.

Frank Sinatra continues as the December Star of the Month. Fred MacMurray will be Star of the Month in January, and February is devoted to the annual 31 Days of Oscar festival.

I can definitely get excited for Merle Oberon, although I'm looking forward to watch/DVR things other than Pimpernel and Wuthering Heights (both good movies, but I've seen them many times).

And *finally* 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea!
