a huge roundup of full-month previews and picks! Learn about the month ahead here…
February on TCM is dedicated to showing mostly Oscar movies so you either love or hate the month, like many bloggers I don’t get too excited about it since I’ve seen most of the movies, but even so, there are some gems to be found and of course you get lots of essentials. Highlights and rarities include Hold Back the Dawn, Wilson, The Long Voyage Home. Speakeasy fave Tyrone Power has a lot of movies on both TCM and on FoxMC, as you will discover via Laura’s posts; Cliff recommends a good Ty Power as well. Must-sees mentioned in the posts linked that I will heartily second are: Orchestra Wives, Only Angels Have Wings, Foreign Correspondent and Ball of Fire. Each major studio gets a nice spotlight through the month, with a new documentary on the history of Warner Bros that looks promising. Among Fox’s highlights are The Story on Page One, Moontide, Cry of the City and On the Avenue.
And I try not to give away what everyone has picked because I want you to go check these out for yourself! so, here’s your roundup of some select bloggers’ looks at the month ahead:
