Quick Preview of TCM in February

Earlier this week Turner Classic Movies released the preview of its February schedule.

As usual, February will be TCM's annual 31 Days of Oscar series, which will conclude on March 3rd.

There are many excellent films airing in February, which makes it a particularly good month for viewers who are newer to classic films; the down side is that there isn't usually much variation in the schedule, since only Oscar-nominated films are shown.

I didn't notice anything particularly unusual or different about this year's Oscar schedule, which I'll discuss in greater detail here around the end of January. My only comment is I do personally wish TCM would stay away from airing controversial recent political documentaries, as it's otherwise a channel which brings people of all kinds together in their love for classic films.

Lana Turner is currently the December Star of the Month, with Charles Boyer coming in January.
