Last night was July 4, a time when there are many fireworks shows here in the US. Interestingly, both of tonight's movies in TCM's prime time lineup have fireworks scenes.

TCM's Essentials, Jr. pick, airing at 8:00 PM ET, is Mr. Hulot's Holiday, in which Jacques Tati inadvertently sets off an entire shed full of fireworks.

It's followed at 10:00 PM ET by Alfred Hitchcock's To Catch a Thief, in which the fireworks are used as a way-too-obvious Freudian metaphor during a kissing scene between Cary Grant and Grace Kelly.
