TCM Guest Programmer December 2016: Amy Heckerling

We're at that time of the month when we get another Guest Programmer selecting the night's lineup on TCM. This month, it's Amy Heckerling, the writer-director who I guess would be best known for Fast Times at Ridgemont High. She sat down with Ben Mankiewicz to talk about four of her favorite movies, and those selections will be on tonight:

The James Cagney gangster movie The Roaring Twenties at 8:00 PM;
James Cagney trying to put on a show in Footlight Parade at 10:00 PM;
Marcelo Mastroianni trying to make a movie in Fellini's 8-1/2 at midnight Tuesday; and
the classic German expressionist silent movie The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari at 2:30 AM.

TCM has been running the trailer for The Roaring Twenties, which is presented by producer Mark Hellinger:
