Re: TCM Genre movies schedule...

Oops, we let this thread slide for a bit, but here's what's coming up over the rest of February:

Today (2/10) at 5:45 EST is Ron Howard's Cocoon, which is inexplicably listed as "Horror."

Tue 2/12, 6:15 AM: Does The Hunchback of Notre Dame count as genre? They've got it billed as Horror too. It's the '39 Charles Laughton version.

Wed 2/13, 4:30 PM: Mighty Joe Young (1949), Ray Harryhausen's first major film (working with King Kong animator Willis O'Brien).

Sun 2/17, 7:15 AM: King Solomon's Mines (1950) with Deborah Kerr and Stewart Granger.

Mon 2/18:
6 PM: George Pal's The Time Machine (1960)
8 PM: Tobe Hooper's Poltergeist (1982)

Wed 2/20, 5:30 PM: The Wonderful World of the Brothers Grimm (1962), featuring stop-motion animation by George Pal (within a live-action biopic about the Grimms).

Fri 2/22, 8 PM: Here Comes Mr. Jordan (1941), which was remade in 1978 as Heaven Can Wait.

Sat 2/23:
8 AM: The 5000 Fingers of Dr. T (1953), an overlooked classic written by Dr. Seuss and starring Hans Conreid.
11:30 AM: Bell, Book and Candle (1959), James Stewart movie about a witch who doesn't use the Oxford comma (I guess).

Mon 2/25:
5:30 PM: Close Encounters of the Third Kind (1977) -- evidently the original theatrical cut, since it says "135 minutes."
8 PM: Who Framed Roger Rabbit? (1988)

Tue 2/26:
9:15 AM: One Million B.C. (1941) with Victor Mature -- sadly, not the Raquel Welch remake.
3:15 PM: Topper (1937)
5:00 PM: Topper Takes a Trip (1939)
6:30 PM: Topper Returns (1941)

Wed 2/27, 1:45 PM: The Jungle Book (1942) -- I guess it's marginally fantasy.

Thu 2/28, 2 AM: The Thief of Baghdad (1940)
