TCM Guest Programmer December 2013: Patton Oswalt

Tonight is the night that Robert Osborne sits down with this month's TCM Guest Programmer, stand-up comedian turned actor Patton Oswalt. (Well, it was of course taped several months ago, but the results are being shown tonight.) Oswalt has a lineup of two classic movies I've blogged about before, and two foreign films about which I know next to nothing:

Kind Hearts and Coronets kicks off the night at 8:00 PM, and if you haven't seen it before, it's a wonderful comedy.
That's followed at 10:00 PM by 3:10 to Yuma, the 1957 western starring Glenn Ford and Van Heflin.
As for the foreign films, there's The Wind Journeys at 11:45 PM which according to the blurb involves a Colombian man who thinks he has the Devil's accordion and wants to return it; and
Aaltra at 2:00 AM, about two feuding French farmers who become paraplegics in a farm accident, and travel to Finland to deal with the company whose tractor was involved in the accident.

The last two movies sound interesting.
