I would have gotten away with it if it weren't for those meddling kids!

Tonight's lineup on TCM is children getting involved in the romantic doings of their now-single parents. I've recommended a couple of the films in the lineup, and haven't seen the others, so I can't really blog about those. The night kicks off at 8:00 PM with With Six You Get Eggroll, which was the subject of a September 2008 blog post. It received a DVD release back in 2005, but that release is presumably out of print now due to the limited number of copies available at Amazon and the fact that you can't get it at the TCM Shop.

And So They Were Married, which I blogged about last December, comes up at 11:15 PM. It hadn't received a DVD release when I wrote about the movie seven months ago, and unsurprisingly, it still hasn't made it to DVD.

The last of the movies is The Courtship of Eddie's Father, early tomorrow morning at 4:15 am. This one is on DVD and in print.

The other three movies, which I haven't seen, are:

Weekend With Father at 9:45 PM, with Van Heflin and Patricia Neal playing the single parents;
Three Daring Daughters at 12:45 AM, an MGM musical comedy with Jeannette MacDonald and Jane Powell; and
Twice Blessed at 2:45 AM, with Preston Foster and Gail Patrick playing now-divorced parents who get reunited.
