Margo Channing vs. the insane clowns

Today being a Friday, the Fox Movie Channel is showing another movie in its Fox Legacy series: the same movie repeated three times in succession, with a Robert Osborne-style introduction from Fox executive Tom Rothman. This week's selection is All About Eve, which airs at 8:00 PM ET, 11:00 PM, and 2:00 AM (or, those are the times the intros start). I'm not certain that I've ever done a full post on All About Eve, although I've mentioned it quite a few times in conjunction with other themes, such as the horrendously bad rear-projection scene with George Sanders and Anne Baxter.

Movies about performing arts show up over on TCM this evening as well. In TCM's case, that performing art is the circus, with a night of movies set under the big top. I've written full-length posts about a couple of the movies, such as Freaks, which kicks the night off at 8:00 PM ET. The last of the four movies, at 1:00 AM, is the other one on which I've written a full post: The Circus Queen Murder. In between, there's Circus of Horrors at 9:15 PM, and older Joan Crawford doing her overacting thing in Berserk at 11:00 PM.
