Frank Capra repeats

TCM has been honoring director Frank Capra on Monday nights this month, and tonight is the final night of that tribute. There are repeats in more ways than one: Capra remade some of his movies over the course of his fairly long career, and TCM is playing the originals followed by the repeats. I've already recommended Lady For a Day in the past, and even then I pointed out that Capra later remade it as Pocketful of Miracles. The two movies are airing back to back, at midnight ET and 1:45 AM respectively.

Before that, however, TCM is showing a pair of movies I haven't seen about heiresses and horse racing: Broadway Bill at 8:00 PM, with Myrna Loy falling in love with Warner Baxter over a horse; followed by the remake Riding High, with Bing Crosby as the male lead.
