Another night of repeats

I've commented before that I don't particularly care for Maurice Chevalier, so I'm personally a bit disappointed that Love Me Tonight is this week's TCM Essential. Oh well, you can't please everybody all of the time, and there's no way TCM is going to appeal to just my interest. I've blogged about the two movies that follow, however, and if you haven't seen either, they're both worth a watch.

First, at 10:00 PM, is Hallelujah, I'm a Bum!, in which Al Jolson plays a bum who happens to be on the in with the Mayor of New York.

That's followed at 11:30 PM by Hollywood Party, a fun little Hollywood-on-Hollywood movie in which Jimmy Durante hosts a wild Hollywood party to promote his new "Schnarzan" movie.
