TCM's Joan Fontaine programming tribute

Joan Fontaine (l.) with Judith Anderson in Rebecca (1940)

TCM has set aside its previously scheduled programming to honor the recently deceased Joan Fontaine with seven of her films. Those movies will be airing tomorrow, December 29, during the morning and afternoon:

Blond Cheat, one of the B-comedies she made at the start of her career, kicks things off at 6:30 AM.
That's followed by The Women at 7:45 AM;
Fontaine as a bad girl in Born to Be Bad at 10:15 AM;
The costume drama Ivanhoe, based on the novel by Sir Walter Scott, at noon;
The Constant Nymph finds Fontaine in love with Charles Boyer at 2:00 PM;
Fontaine wins an Oscar for Suspicion at 4:00 PM; and
Fontaine becomes Laurence Olivier's second wife in Recebba, at 5:45 PM.

Suspicion was already on the schedule for tonight at 10:00 PM. As for the availability on DVD, TCM lists all of them as being on DVD with the exceptions of Blond Cheat (not too surprising) and Born to Be Bad.
