TCM Guest Programmer June 2016

Tonight sees this month's Guest Programmer on TCM: Candice Bergen. As I understand it, this segment was taped several months ago with Robert Osborne. Somebody else (Louis Gossett Jr., I believe) was supposed to be a Guest Programmer earlier in the year and his segment had to be rescheduled due to Robert's illness. Anyhow, Bergen has selected four of her favorite movies and those are on this evening. Bergen's four selections:

The Treasure of the Sierra Madre at 8:00 PM, in which Humphrey Bogart learns that the search for gold can lead to terrible greed and jealousy;
The Graduate at 10:15 PM, in which a man who should be working in plastics (Dustin Hoffman) is seduced by his would-be girlfriend's (Katharine Ross) mother (Anne Bancroft);
The Earrings of Madame De... at 12:15 AM, about what happens when somebody sells jewelry to pay off a debt; and
The French Connection at 2:15 AM, with Gene Hackman and Roy Scheider investigating a drug deal.
