Quick Preview of TCM in January

The January schedule for Turner Classic Movies is now available!

Patricia Neal is the January Star of the Month. 16 Neal films and a short are scheduled to screen spread across Tuesday evenings in January.

The January Noir Alley titles will be THE BIG SLEEP (1946), THE BIG NIGHT (1951), THE CAPTIVE CITY (1952), and TRY AND GET ME (1950).

The TCM Spotlight in January will focus on the Roaring '20s. Other January themes include matchmaking, early Hollywood, gossip, love in New York, plastic surgery, '70s Robert Mitchum, and MAGNIFICENT SEVEN movies. "Overlooked performances" by black actors and the Holocaust will also be a focus in January.

I'm particularly pleased that Deanna Durbin will receive a primetime tribute on January 26th, with screenings of THREE SMART GIRLS (1936) and IT'S A DATE (1940), along with the short she made with Judy Garland, EVERY SUNDAY (1936).

Additional filmmakers receiving multifilm tributes in January include Mary Astor, Jean Simmons, Bob Hope, Gig Young, Anita Louise, Harold Lloyd, Paul Muni, Conrad Veidt, Gregory Peck, and Katharine Hepburn. The month will conclude with a trio of films from director Douglas Sirk which starred Rock Hudson.

Paul Muni continues as the current Star of the Month for October, with Bette Davis scheduled to be honored in November and Joan Blondell in December.
