TCM TV Alerts through tomorrow at 7 am:
These titles play on TCM's US schedule and all quoted times are for my own local Eastern time zone.
This section will be brief today.
—The Technicolor marathon continues all day Wednesday with titles like Heaven Can Wait (1943 - 10:45 am), Singin' in the Rain (1952 - 2:30 pm), Gentleman Prefer Blondes (1953 - 6:15 pm), She Wore a Yellow Ribbon (1949 - 8:00 pm), and North by Northwest (1959 - 10:00 pm).
—GetTV is offering a strong morning of programming with Frank Capra's Lost Horizon (1937) at 7:30 am, followed by two of Capra's Columbia collaborations with Barbara Stanwyck, Ladies of Leisure (1930) at 10:40 am and The Bitter Tea of General Yen (1932) at 1:00 pm.
—I thought it'd be fun to page through a Depression-era newspaper to find out what happened on this date in history. This time I was smart enough to go for tomorrow's edition of the paper, as that would include news of the previous day, today, right? Well, I glanced too quickly at my calendar and read the July 10, 1932 paper instead of the July 9, so you've got all the news of tomorrow's day in 1932 rather than today's. Small goof, but just in case you were wondering why I picked that paper when you reach the feature.
—I spent most of Tuesday night putting that together, so I'm going to otherwise keep it brief today. Of course, subscribers will see those newspaper clippings and other goodies to follow.
—My eBay sales items, currently discounted 35-60%, can be found through THIS LINK.
Talk to you tomorrow!
—Hopefully TCM sees fit to air that Eugene Pallette What A Character! segment they sometimes play in between movies. It always brings a ton of visitors to my Pallette biography.
