We have a few WWI-themed movies showing on Turner Classics this month, including two versions of Waterloo Bridge. As usual, all times are Central.

Waterloo Bridge (1931). The story of a ballerina sinking into prostitution after her husband is reported killed in WWI. This version is directed by James Whale (Frankenstein) and stars Mae Clarke and Kent Douglass. It’s at 5:00 a.m November 5th–sorry for the short notice.

The Big Parade (1925). The silent classic starring John Gilbert and Renee Adoree. 5:00 a.m is a popular time this month; it airs on Armistice Day, November 11th.

Waterloo Bridge (1940). This version stars Vivien Leigh and Robert Taylor. It airs at 5:00 p.m. on November 15th.

The Lost Squadron (1932). Veteran WWI flyers find work as movie stuntmen. Stars Richard Dix, Mary Astor, and Robert Armstrong. Airs at 9:00 a.m. November 22nd.

Happy viewing!
