It's Mothers' Day again

TCM trots out several of the same movies on the second Sunday in May to honor the mothers of the world. Sure, they're old chestnuts, but some of them are movies that are worthy of a second (or twenty-second) viewing. Indeed, I've recommended a couple of them before:

Lady For a Day kicks off proceedings at 6:30 AM ET Sunday.

At 6:30 AM last year was Bachelor Mother. That isn't showing up this year. But the movie was remade in the 1950s as a musical, Bundle of Joy, and that remake comes on at 10:30 AM.

Mildred Pierce aired last year on Mothers' Day, and got a mention in my Mothers' Day post last year. This year, it comes on 45 minutes earlier, at 12:30 PM.

I just recommended Stella Dallas a few weeks ago, and now it's on again, at 10:30 PM.

The salute continues into the early hours of Monday with Jimmy Stewart treating his mother Beulah Bondi poorly in Of Human Hearts, at 6:00 AM Monday.
