I’m already a little slow in posting WWI-themed movies on Turner Classics for this month–if you missed it, Paths of Glory was on last night as part of TCM’s tribute to the late Kirk Douglas.
That doesn’t mean there aren’t a few movies to be seen later on this month, although they might not reach the same stature of Paths of Glory. As usual, all times are Central.
–The Lost Patrol (1934). A John Ford-directed film starring Victor McLaglen, Boris Karloff, and Wallace Ford. 2:30 a.m. on the morning of Friday the 13th.
–The Fighting 69th (1940). You can always count on TCM to run this one on St. Patrick’s Day. Airs at 5:45 a.m. on Tuesday, March 17th. With James Cagney and Pat O’Brien.
A trio of films for the morning of Thursday, March 19th:
–Born to Love (1932). A WWI pilot thought dead turns up after his wife has remarried. 6:30 a.m on the 19th.
–War Nurse (1930). A nurse fights to survive when she’s caught behind enemy lines. Stars Robert Montgomery, Anita Page, and June Walker. Airs at 8:00 a.m. on the 19th.
–A Farewell to Arms (1932). The Hemingway classic brought to the screen. Stars Helen Hayes, Gary Cooper, and Adolphe Menjou. Airs at 9:30 a.m. on the 19th.
Apologies if any films have been missed!
