TCM programming heads-up for June 15-16, 2019

It's been a good two years since I blogged about La pointe courte. It's on again tonight at 8:00 PM as this week's Essential. That will be followed at 9:45 PM by Cleo from 5 to 7. They're both on the same pricey Criterion box set, so I'm going to have to record the latter to do a review on it.

Tomorrow is Father's Day, and it should be no surprise that TCM is running a bunch of movies suitable for the day. I was kind of surprised to see the number of movies where the sons have either difficult or less than the stereotypically happy stuff you see in Father's Day cards. Oh, some of the usual suspects show up in the lineup, such as Life With Father at 8:00 PM Sunday, or the first Andy Hardy movie at 11:45 AM. There's even The Courtship of Eddie's Father, which also seems to get shown every Father's Day, at 3:45 PM. But there are the others, like Edward, My Son at 8:00 AM, as well as East of Eden at 1:15 PM.
