Serendipitous tributes

With as many movies as TCM shows, it shouldn't be surprising that once in a while, a movie comes up not long after one of the members of the cast died; and that with the movie having been programmed several months in advance. Such is the case with Jackie Cooper; his 1934 version of Treasure Island is airing tomorrow morning at 6:00 AM ET on TCM.

That won't be your only chance to catech a tribute to Cooper, however, as it looks like TCM has pre-empted its schedule to show a morning and afternoon of Cooper's movies on Friday, May 13.
