Sidney Lumet tribute

TCM is finally getting around to its tribute to director Sidney Lumet, who died a week and a half ago. Actually, the TCM Remembers piece showed up surprisingly quickly, as I remember seeing it between movies during the Elizabeth Taylor tribute the day after Lumet's death. A very tasteful piece indeed: a title card "Directed by Sidney Lumet" in the typeface of the credits for Lumet's Murder on the Orient Express, followed by some scenes from movies he directed, and quite a few still photos of Lumet working with actors. As for the night of movies, that's tonight, and contains four films and an interview:

12 Angry Men kicks things off at 8:00 PM ET;
Sidney Lumet's Private Screenings interview with Robert Osborne will be shown at 10:00 PM;
The Hill is on at 11:00 PM;
Network will air at 1:15 AM; and
Dog Day Afternoon concludes the night at 3:30 AM.
