An end, and some beginnings

Today is January 31, the last day before another year of 31 Days of Oscar on TCM. It being a Saturday, we get one more Essential on TCM, that being Twentieth Century with John Barrymore and Carole Lombard. It's also the last of the Essentials with Drew Barrymore. After three years, she's being replaced come March with Sally Field, something which I know will please a lot of people, albiet not the ones who think TCM shouldn't have The Essentials at all, and should just cater to me me me!!! Not that they enjoy 31 Days of Oscar, either.

TCM has been running the British Carry On series in the 10:30 AM Saturday time slot. That takes a break for 31 Days of Oscar, but does not end yet. When it returns in March, however, we'll also be getting a Batman serial from 1943 joining it at 10:00 AM and running for several weeks.

February 1 also brings some movies out of the Fox vault that haven't been seen in some time, and brings them to FXM Retro for multiple airings. I blogged about Blue Denim, which comes on at 9:50 AM tomorrow, back in May of 2011. Teenage Rebel, which was also the subject of a full-length post back in May 2011, follows at 11:25 AM tomorrow. Both of them will also show up in the wee hours of Monday morning.

Enjoy your February!
