Shorts for March 31, 2016

There actually aren't that many shorts on the TCM schedule for the next couple of days. Two today, and then nothing until Saturday morning.

First up, at 3:29 PM today, or just after No Leave, No Love (1:30 PM, 119 min) is I Love My Wife But!. You should be able to guess from the presence of Dave O'Brien in the cast that this is a Pete Smith short, so you can take that into account when you decide whether or not you want to watch it. I think I've stated a couple of times that I'm not the biggest Pete Smith fan out there.

The other short comes on at about 7:44 PM this evening, in the slot between Love Me or Leave Me (5:30 PM, 122 min) and the start of prime time at 8:00 PM is Golden Glamour. I hadn't heard of this one before, but looking at the date (1955), the 15-minute running time, and the subject matter, I guessed that it was one of the RKO-Pathé Screenliners, which from the IMDb pages seems to be exactly the case. The one IMDb review doesn't make it sound very promising, but then these RKO Screenliners can be hit or miss.
