Briefs for Christmas Eve 2016

FXM Retro has, in previous years, run a very bad print of Alastair Sim's A Christmas Carol for 24 hours with commercial interruptions during the evening and then no commercials during the daytime. This year, it only looks like FXM -- the evening part, not the Retro part -- is running it four times between 7PM tonight and 3AM tomorrow. I think TCM ran it earlier this week, though.

I saw the TCM Remembers 2016 piece again last night after The Thin Man, and noticed that since Sunday, they've put in a clip of Zsa Zsa Gabor, which is a nice touch. With any luck, nobody important will die necessitating another hasty edit. Which brings me to...

Get well soon, Princess Leia. Yikes. Only 60, and her mother, Debbie Reynolds, is still alive. What a terrible thing to happen any time, but it must be even harder at Christmas.

Merry Christmas, everybody!
