TCM's Patricia Neal tribute

Gary Cooper and Patricia Neal in The Fountainhead

Patricia Neal died just over a month ago. Since she died in August, when TCM has its annual Summer Under the Stars programming, TCM couldn't change its lineup to have a night of movies in Neal's honor until September.

That salute is coming up tonight, and has four of Neal's films. However, it starts off at 8:00 PM ET with a Private Screenings interview she did with Robert Osborne several years ago.
That's followed at 9:00 PM by The Fountainhead;
11:00 PM by The Subject Was Roses, the first movie Neal made after her stroke and for which she was Oscar-nominated;
1:00 AM by A Face in the Crowd, in which Neal discovers what a scumbag Matlock (er, Andy Griffith) can be; and
In Harm's Way at 3:15 AM; which was probably only selected because TCM needed a movie to fit in a 165-minute time slot.
