Welcome to my new blog! I’ll begin with some very exciting news. Turner Classic Movies will be devoting its prime-time schedule on Monday, September 22nd, to my new book SCREEN SAVERS. Host Robert Osborne has selected five movies featured in the book, and he will be introducing them on the air that evening.
Here’s the rundown of films:
8pm – PORTRAIT OF JENNIE (1948) – Jennifer Jones and Joseph Cotten
9:30pm – STARS IN MY CROWN (1950) – Joel McCrea and Dean Stockwell
11:15pm – ONE WAY PASSAGE (1932) – William Powell and Kay Francis
12:30 am – DEVIL’S DOORWAY (1950) – Robert Taylor and Louis Calhern
2am – THE TALL TARGET (1951) – Dick Powell and Ruby Dee
I’m so pleased with the choices, especially because four of the five aren’t yet available on DVD. Mark your calendars. Thanks!
