One more night at the movies

TCM has for a couple of years now been running an infrequent series called A Night at the Movies, which looks at a certain genre of movies, generally giving a fairly cursory overview. Not the worst thing ever done, but there's not a whole lot groundbreaking for those who watch a lot of TCM.

Still, we note that TCM has a new installment in that series tonight: A Night at the Movies: George Lucas and the World of Fantasy Cinema. I don't know exactly how this installment is structured, since TCM's front page is pretentiously referring to tnoight's showings as a world premiere, but they do have a slightly more detalied page on the topic, and the other fantasy movies that will be airing as part of the salute.

As usually happens with documentary premieres on TCM, this one will be airing at 8:00 PM, followed by one movie, in thic case the Danny Kaye version of The Secret Life of Walter Mitty at 9:15 PM. Then, for the venefit of the folks on the west coast, the documentary will be repeated, at 11:15 PM.
