TCM's John Garfield birthday salute

Having finished 31 Days of Oscar, TCM returns to normal programming with a March 4 birthday tribute: to John Garfield (1913-1952), who appeared in some 30 movies over the last 15 years of his life. One of his best-known movies is The Postman Always Rings Twice, and TCM is finishing up the salute with that movie, at 5:30 PM ET. (I'd argue that Garfield's other best-known movie is Gentleman's Agreement, even though his is only a supporting role. However, that's a Fox movie and not airing on TCM today.)

A movie that I've mentioned briefly is Between Two Worlds, having mentioned the fact that it's a remake of a movie I did a full review on, Outward Bound. (Has it really been two years since TCM has shown Outward Bound?) Between Two Worlds precedes The Postman Always Rings Twice, at 3:30 PM.
