Telluride has gone missing

Telluride, the city or film festival, hasn't gone missing, but it seems as though it has gone missing from the TCM schedule. For years, every Labor Day would see TCM run films that had been honored by Telluride, did the festival thing at Telluride, or had involvement from somebody who got a lifetime achievement-type award at Telluride.

This Labor Day, however, has a series of movies first alternating between having the word "devil" in the title and the word "angel" in the title. I figured at first that the Telluride salute was going to be prime time only, but the TCM schedule page lists tonight's schedule as movies celebrating an anniversary this year. Intolerance is 100; Citizen Kane is 75, and so on.
