John Wayne and Donna Reed

Today marks the birth anniversary of John Wayne, and TCM are showing a bunch of his movies from the 1930s all morning and afternoon, up until Donna Reed gets her final night as Star of the Month. It's slightly interesting to see that TCM scheduled Trouble Along the Way last week, since it stars both Wayne and Reed, and TCM could have killed two birds with one stone, so to say, by putting it on tonight. Instead, the night kicks off with From Here to Eternity at 8:00 PM. That having been said, Trouble Along the Way isn't the only movie Wayne and Reed made together; their other picture, They Were Expendable, is on tonight at 10:15 PM. They Were Expendable also stars Robert Montgomery (on the left in the photo above), who not only starred, but also handled some of the directing duties when John Ford took ill.
