About twice a month I scroll through the TCM listings in my Tivo and decide what to record in the coming weeks. I thought I'd share a few highlights with you.

Here are my picks (all times are pst):

DOUBLE INDEMNITY- 3/13 @ 5:00 pm
I know we've all seen it dozens of times but, frankly, that's still not enough.

MILDRED PIERCE - 3/13 @ 7:00 pm
I'm sorry but Double Indemnity followed by Mildred Pierce?! Sign me up!

NOSFERATU - 3/15 @ 9:00 pm
Ok, don't freak out. I've never seen this. I think it's time.

THE QUIET MAN - 3/17 @ 5:00 pm
I just plain like this movie. It's by far my favorite John Wayne.

DARK VICTORY- 3/19 @ 3:00 am
One of my favorite Betty Davis films. Also showcases my all time favorite make-over. Betty loses the padding and plucks her eyebrows and voila! She's a recovered wall flower turned megawatt social butterfly. Sweet!

I know... I know... It's completely misogynistic and should entirely offend me but dammit I love it!

A PLACE IN THE SUN - 3/22 @ 7:00 am
I Luuuuuuuv this movie. Elizabeth Taylor and Monty Clift could not be more beautiful and Shelley Winters could not be more annoying. Bring it!

STRAIGHT-JACKET - 3/23 @ 1:30 pm
Norm and I watched this for a while at Shandon's Halloween party and I think it's safe to say he enjoyed it as much as I did. It features tons of Joanie Crawford over-acting and it's awe-some! (This appears to be part of a Joan Crawford marathon... enjoy!!)

SHADOW OF DOUBT- 3/24 @ 8:00 am
Incredibly creepy Hitchcock film that I can't believe they are playing so early in the day.

Of course there are lots of other nice gems on TCM throughout the next couple of weeks these are just the titles that I am most excited about.

I also happen to have an ulterior motive. I'm pushing the idea of a DVR on poor Shandon. I'm hoping posts like this help her bite the inevitable bullet. Come on Shandon DO IT!!

TCM's current schedule ROCKS. Wish me luck -- I'm going to try to record Shack Out on 101 (how lurid does THAT sound?) tonight. If I'm successful, I may have to postpone the whole DVR thing for a while. If not, well, I'm sure you'll hear about it.
