31 Days of Oscar begins tomorrow

Tomorrow being February 1, it's time for another edition of TCM's 31 Days of Oscar, with the regular features like Silent Sunday Nights and TCM Imports going on hiatus for the next several weeks. This year, TCM is grouping the movies by studio, with the first studio up being Warner Bros. The movies from WB are roughly in chronological order, starting with The Jazz Singer at 6:00 AM and continuing for four or five days, through to those movies that had the WB/Seven Arts logo.

The other thing with 31 Days of Oscar is that I've already blogged about a lot of the movies that show up. A case in point is 42nd Street, which will be airing tomorrow at noon. Not only did I do a post about it back in 2008, but in writing up this post I was thinking of some things I wouldn't have minded saying about Ruby Keeler's dancing. It turns out that I already mentioned that back in September 2011.

TCM's schedule lists two of tomorrow's movies as not being in print on DVD: Disraeli at 7:30 AM, and The Story of Louis Pasteur at 3:15 PM.
