TCM Remembers updated

TCM got around to editing the annual TCM Remembers piece that airs from time to time during the last half of December. I'm not quite certain, but I think five names were added: Audrey Totter, Peter O'Toole, and Joan Fontaine have all been mentioned here before; there's also Tom Laughlin who played Billy Jack in a series of movies in the early 1970s, and Jean Kent, who died at the end of November and appeared in several British movies, with the 1951 film The Browning Version probably being the best known of them. At least, I don't remember her from the original version of the piece. TCM's media room has a piece in their media room that's dated December 17 and so should be the updated piece, but the embed code looks to be identical to the original version.

As for Joan Fontaine and Peter O'Toole, they're both going to be honored by TCM with a change to the programming lineup on December 29. Fontaine gets the 14 morning/afternoon hours from 6:00 AM to 8:00 PM, with Peter O'Toole getting the prime time salute. There are also individual TCM Remembers clips, each running a little over a minute as is generally the case for the individual remembrances, which should be showing up from time to time until the 29th.
