TCM's Dennis Hopper tribute

As is often the case when a famous star of older movies dies, TCM sets aside some time in the schedule, preempting their originally scheduled movies to show several starring the recently deceased star. Tonight, that tribute goes to the late Dennis Hopper. TCM is showing five of his movies:

The Sons of Katie Elder at 8:00 PM,
True Grit at 10:15 PM,
Rebel Without a Cause at 12:30 AM Wednesday,
Easy Rider at 2:30 AM, and
Night Tide at 4:15 AM.

This preempts a night of Saint movies, several starring George Sanders as Simon Templar, long before Roger Moore played the role. To be honest, I'm a bit disappointed, but then, TCM plays the Saint movies quite a bit.
