New month, new movies on FXM

Today is the first day of a new month, so it's looking as though FXM is going to be pulling some movies out of the vault that they haven't run in a good while. I don't know how long they're going to be in the FXM rotatoin, or whether any of the things that were in the rotation through yesterday are being removed.

One of them comes up today, as part of a mini-marathon of Shirley Temple movies: Wee Willie Winkie, at 10:15 AM, which has Little Miss Shirley over in British India. That's followed at noon by Rebecca of Sunnybrook Farm and at 1:25 PM by The Little Princess, both of which have already been on FXM fairly regularly in the past few months. The last time I looked at Rebecca of Sunnybrook Farm, FXM was running a colorized version, I'm sorry to say. The Little Princess was actually filmed in color, while Wee Willie Winkie is apparently availalbe both in the original black and white as well as in a colorized version. So I won't be surprised if FXM runs a colorized version of that, too.

There are three "back on FXM" movies that show up on Tuesday:

The Sheriff of Fractured Jaw, at 6:00 AM, has Kenneth More as a British man who becomes sheriff of an old west town.
Bobbikins, at 7:45 AM, sends Shirley Jones over to the UK, where she's the mother of a toddler who gives Daddy (Max Bygreaves) stock tips.
And then there's the war drama Circle of Deception at 9:20 AM.

Richard Attenborough died last week, and FXM is showing his Guns of Batasi once more, tomorrow at 11:00 AM.
