TCM's Paul Newman tribute

I've been remiss in not posting that TCM announced their tribute to the late Paul Newman which will preempt their regularly scheduled programming. TCM have selected eleven of Newman's movies in a 24-hour salute all day and night Sunday TCM time. Those movies are:

The Rack, at 6:00 AM ET (all times are in Eastern);
Until They Sail, at 8:00 AM;
Torn Curtain, at 10:00 AM;
Exodus, at 12:15 PM;
Sweet Bird of Youth, at 3:45 PM;
Hud, at 6:00 PM;
Somebody Up There Likes Me, at 8:00 PM;
Cool Hand Luke, at 10:00 PM;
Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, at 12:15 AM Monday;
Rachel, Rachel, at 2:15 AM; and
The Outrage, at 4:00 AM.

I believe this is TCM's first 24-hour tribute since the death of Shelley Winters back in January 2006. It's unfortunate that TCM had to wait two weeks to be able to juggle the schedule to show everything, but they've had so many specials in prime time lately that they didn't have to many free places to put such a long (and well-deserved) tribute.
