Kay Francis gets the TCM birthday treatment all day today, January 13. Francis is featured throughout 14 hours or daytime programming, highlighted by the back to back early a.m. tandem of Jewel Robbery and One Way Passage. The entire schedule is below, but first I celebrate Kay Francis a little myself with a video review of Scott O'Brien's 2007 Francis biography, I Can’t Wait to Be Forgotten.
Just in case the video doesn't show up for subscribers here's the YouTube link.
