...On October 29th, Michael Rennie plays Father Junipero Serra in SEVEN CITIES OF GOLD (1955). Richard Egan, Anthony Quinn, Jeffrey Hunter, and Rita Moreno also star.

As always, keep in mind that Fox often shows films more than once per month; I've only listed one date per title. Consult the schedule for additional air dates.

Due to the extremely repetitive nature of Fox's schedule, viewers may want to check out my posts on Fox's August and September schedules for additional titles which might be airing in October.
