TCM's Rod Taylor Tribute

They didn't have hot tubs in Victorian England
Rod Taylor in The Time Machine (1960)

Rod Taylor died three weeks ago, and TCM is finally getting around to a night where it could ditch the previously scheduled movies. TCM will be running five of Taylor's movies in prime time tonight:

First, at 8:00 PM, is The Time Machine, in whihc Taylor travels 800,000 years into the future and finds that mankind has devolved into two races;
Next, at 10:00 PM, Taylor goes to Bodega Bay, CA, and finds that the birds there don't like him or Tippi Hedren in Alfred Hitchcock's The Birds;
At 12:15 AM, Taylor spends a Sunday in New York with Cliff Robertson and Jane Fonda;
Taylor plays Irish playwright Sean O'Casey under the pen name Cassidy in Young Cassidy, at 2:15 AM; and
Taylor gets to do a comic turn with Doris Day in The Glass-Bottom Boat at 4:15 AM.
