How many Fox docudramas can I mention?

One of the first posts I made about the docudramas that Fox produced starting after World War II was in January 2009, regarding the story of Soviet defector Igor Gouzenko, whose story was turned into the movie The Iron Curtain. I mentioned at the time that it wasn't available on DVD; in fact, it still hasn't been released to DVD.

I've also commented in the past about how the Fox Movie Channel seems to be programmed: they take a few of their old movies out of the vault, run them over and over for a relatively short time, and then return them to the vault, not to be seen for quite a few years. The Iron Curtain is such a movie, having shown up quite a bit back in 2006 or 2007, only to go missing for a long time. Well, tomorrow being the first day of a new month, it seems a time to introduce a few movies back to the FMC lineup, with The Iron Curtain being one of them, at 1:00 PM ET.

It's followed by another movie I don't think has been on the Fox Movie Channel for quite some time: Pickup on South Street, at 2:30 PM June 1. Indeed, Pickup on South Street is scheduled for a good half-dozen airings on FMC in June and July.
