November

Monday and Tuesday nights are dedicated to TCM Spotlight on the Hollywood Blacklist.

Movies of film makers and/or stars affected by the actions of the House UnAmerican Activities Committee (HUAC) in the 1950s will be shown.

Wednesday is dedicated to Star of the Month (SOTM) James Stewart. There is a big change that I hope will continue. In the past, the films for SOTM stars with large filmographies, like Jimmy Stewart, began at 8 pm ET on their assigned day and continued into the next TCM day. Now they will have their films shown in one TCM day (6 am ET to 6 am ET) once a week.

Saturdays and Sundays usually don’t have a daytime theme however on Saturday Nov 11, the day is dedicated to war movies in honor of Veterans Day.

Saturday nights at 8 pm ET, Alec Baldwin and a special guest host present The Essentials, a movie they consider a must-see for classic movie fans. The two films following The Essentials are tied into it by a theme. It could be by the star of The Essentials movie or a theme like blackmail. Following this block of movies, usually about 2 am ET is TCM Underground which shows cult classics.

Sunday late nights (Monday on the East Coast) are dedicated to Silent Sunday Nights and TCM Imports. The fun begins at midnight eastern time.

 

We had to revert to a very simple schedule because the “fancy” layout was breaking code on the site. Hopefully this will be the last change for a while. We appreciate your patience.
