Due to the holidays we’re trying to give you a heads up on WWI themed movies scheduled on TCM the first six days of January.   Turns out there’s only one that we can take note of.

That would be The Spy in Black, also known as U-Boat 29.  This is a British film directed by Michael Powell and stars Conrad Veidt and Valerie Hobson.  It airs at 11:00 a.m. Central on Saturday, January 5th.

We’ll try to alert you to more films in January later on.
