Alan Arkin night

Robert Osborne, sadly, is going to be missing this year's TCM Film Festival. That's a big shame, since he was going to be interviewing somebody there -- well, that somebody being Sophia Loren.

As for last yeat, the interviewee was Alan Arkin, and TCM is finally getting around to showing that interview this evening at 8:00 PM. As is usually the case with original premieres, there's going to be a second airing for the benefit of viewers on the west coast. This follows the normal practice of including one feature film (in this case The In-Laws) at 9:00 PM, with the repeat airing of the interview following at 11:00 PM.

Other movies airing in tonight's prime time lineup include:

The Heart Is a Lonely Hunter at midnight, about a deaf-mute in a southern town and the way his appearance changes the lives of everybody who comes into his life;
Wait Until Dark at 2:15 AM, starring Audrey Hepburn as the best-dressed blind woman around who winds up in possession of a doll stuffed with heroin; and
Hearts of the Weat at 4:15 AM, with Arkin as a producer/director of B-grade westerns in the 1930s who makes a starr out of Jeff Bridges.
