Out-of-print update for August 7, 2015

First, I should apologize for the satellite outage that prevented me from writing a normal post yesterday. It's particularly distressing in that I would have enjoyed writing a full-length post about Beyond the Poseidon Adventure, which aired this morning at 6:00 AM as part of a day of Michael Caine movies. Unfortunately, it's one of the movies that TCM's schedule lists as not being available from the TCM Shop, which implies that it's not in print.

There are also a couple of movies tomorrow airing as part of Katharine Hepburn's day that are surprisingly not available from the TCM Shp, at least not according to the schedule.

Pat and Mike, which I mentioned briefly very early on in my posting days, can be seen tomorrow afternoon at 1:15 PM. Hepburn plays a female athlete managed by Spencer Tracy

That's followed at 3:00 PM by the much better comedy Adam's Rib. In this one, lawyers Hepburn and Tracy wind up on opposite sides of a case in which a wife shoots her husband.

Finally, at 4:45 PM, is Woman of the Year. Hepburn plays a political columnist who winds up romantically involved with sportswriter Spencer Tracy.
