Lots and lots of shorts, May 23-24, 2018

TCM's Spotlight this month is on movie series, with this week looking at detectives. By the time you read this, they're either just finishing or will already have finished the Miss Marple movies, moving on to Torchy Blane. Anyhow, I was looking at the schedule and surprised by the volume of shorts that TCM scheduled between the movies.

Just before the first of the Torchy Blane movies, Hot News Margie gets another airing, or about 8:35 AM this morning. (So you'll probably have missed it.)

For those of you who like the Robert Benchley shorts, there are two this afternoon, How to Vote around 5:15 PM and How to Be a Detective at about 7:50 PM.

Movies on Sundays will be on a little after 8:00 AM tomorrow morning, just after the first of the Perry Mason movies that TCM is showing on Thursday.

And it's not a short, but the recently deceased Patricia Morrison was in Song of the Thin Man, the last of the Thin Man movies, which will be on TCM early tomorrow morning at 5:15 AM. (TCM is unsurprisingly running all six Thin Man movies in prime time tonight.)
