The Art of Collaboration

I mentioned another documentary yesterday; this evening we have a TCM premiere, of a new episode in the AFT series on the "art of collaboration". I have to admit that I have no idea if this series is any good, since I haven't been bothered to watch any of the previous episodes. This particular episode looks at the collaboration between director Rob Reiner and editor Robert Leighton, and comes on at 8:00 PM.

As is usually the case when TCM presents a new documentary in the 8:00 PM time slot, the schedule will see one movie pertaining to the documentary. This time out, that movie is The Sure Thing at 9:00 PM, in which a college student (John Cusack) takes a road trip with a woman (Daphne Zuniga) he doesn't like at the start of the movie, only to find himself falling for her along the way. Ah, the road trip is such a time-tested formula in Hollywood. Perhaps TCM should devote the Friday Night Spotlight to road trips some month. ;-)

After the one film relating to the documentary, we get a repeat of the documentary, at 11:00 PM. If you have a copy of the monthly schedule, note that it has everything an hour off following the first showing of the documentary. What's on the daily schedule but not on the monthly schedule is another showing of Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, tomorrow morning at 5:45 AM.
