Briefs for September 9-10, 2015

Tonight on TCM sees a lineup of westerns from the 1950s. Apparently, The Naked Spur, which I blogged about back in July 2008 and which is coming up overnight at 3:00 AM, is out of print on DVD. You can't get it at the TCM Shop and the Amazon DVD options are all old releases. You can, however, get it via instant video on Amazon if you do that thing.

When Dean Jones died last week, I don't think I mentioned that his first role was a small part in Somebody Up There Likes Me, a biopic about boxer Rocky Graziano (Paul Newman). Somebody Up There Likes Me happens to be on the TCM schedule for tomorrow at 1:00 PM.

Over on FXM Retro, they're running Tales of Manhattan tomorrow morning at 6:00 AM. However, they've got it in a two-hour time slot, which implies it would be the version with the WC Fields sketch excised.

Finally, Satan Never Sleeps is being taken back out of the FXM vault after only two years. It'll be on tomorrow at 12:45 PM.
