TCM Guest Programmer: Frank Rich

This month's TCM Guest Programmer, New York Times columnist Frank Rich, sits down with Robert Osborne to present four of his favorite films, and that session is airing tonight. (So, for once, Robert Osborne is back on Thursday.) Anyhow, Rich's four selections are:

The Palm Beach Story at 8:00 PM;
The 1962 version of The Manchurian Candidate at 9:45 PM;
Jean Renoir's 1939 movie Rules of the Game at midnight; and
Petulia at 2:00 AM.

I have to admit that I've never seen Rules of the Game before. I'll also be curious to see to what extent Rich waxes political in his introduction to The Manchurian Candidate.
