Liz Taylor update, part 3

I mentioned a few days back that TCM will be honoring Elizabeth Taylor on April 10 with 24 hours of her movies. The Fox Movie Channel is actually going to be honoring her too, with 24 hours of her movie airing tomorrow starting at 6:00 AM. If you noticed that I wrote "24 hours of movie", that was intentional. It's because the Fox Movie Channel is showing Cleopatra five times back-to-back, at 6:00 AM, 11:00 AM, 3:30 PM, 8:00 PM, and 1:00 AM; the last two airings will include the Fox Legacy introduction by Tom Rothman.

It's nice to see that the folks at the Fox Movie Channel are at least thinking, but really, Cleopatra five times? Granted, Taylor didn't make all that many movies at Fox, but at least they could have programmed The Only Game In Town, which showed up on their schedule last summer.
