Memorial Day weekend

This being the Memorial Day weekend, TCM is showing three full days of war related movies, which started at 6:00 AM ET this morning. (Normally, they show movies through Memorial Day itself, but this year, Memorial Day happens to fall on Clint Eastwood's 80th birthday, so TCM are honoring that instead.)

There are quite a few good movies being shown this weekend, many of which I've already recommended at some point in the past. Tonight, for example, you can watch Stalag 17 at 8:00 PM, followed by The Great Escape at 10:15 PM. Tomorrow evening's TCM Essential, at 8:00 PM, is The Best Years of Our Lives, a movie I could recommend over and over.

If you don't like war movies, you might want to switch over to the Fox Movie Channel. This week's Fox Legacy is All About Eve, introduced by Fox executive Tom Rothman at 8:00 PM, and repeated at 11:00 PM and 2:00 AM.
