Another set of FXM Repeats

I said the other day that there were some movies coming back to FXM Retro after a long absence; indeed, I think one of today's selections might not have been on the channel since the switch from the Fox Movie Channel to FXM Retro.

Today's selection begins with the one airing of The Purple Heart, at 9:15 AM. My satellite box guide doesn't show this one coming up again in the next two weeks or however far out the box guide goes.
That will be followed at 11:00 AM by The Girl in the Red Velvet Swing. Joan Collins stars as a woman at the turn of the last century involved in a love triangle with Ray Milland and Farley Granger that turns fatal for one of them.
Finally, at 12:50 PM, you can cath The Black Rose, re-teaming Tyrone Power and Orson Welles, this time in China, not Renaissance Italy. Not bad, especially for those who like the Tyrone Power formula.

The last two movies will be getting another airing on FXM Retro tomorrow, with The Black Rose showing up at 6:00 AM and The Girl in the Red Velvet Swing coming on at 9:30 AM. In and around those movies, you can catch repeat showings of:

White Feather at 4:00 AM and
A Blueprint For Murder at 8:10 AM.

I have a feeling somebody at FXM tried to come up with a lineup putting all these colors together; it's not as if they do much else in the way of putting thought into their programming, though.
