Just in case you jumped away from your TV too soon I wanted to be sure you were aware that TCM has now released the 2012 edition of their "TCM Remembers" video.
This annual TCM video montage presents a tasteful tribute to all of the film industry people who have passed away throughout the 2012 calendar year.
Unlike the similar annual presentation shown during the Academy Awards, TCM always manages to get this just right and never seems to leave anybody out. The videos have proved tremendously popular throughout the years.
Every year there's bound to be a jolt, whether from flawed memory or utter surprise, and I don't know about you, but my throat is always a little tight by the time we reach the end of the presentation.
The video features the song "Wait" by the French electronic band M83 and runs 5:37.
It will run on TCM throughout the rest of December into January - Catch it in between films.
