TCM Bob Schedule for February

Sigh . . . January is pretty much over and the stash of recorded James Cagney films will dwindle in the upcoming days. I don't know about you guys, but I got spoiled this month by always having a Cagney at the ready. Back to the topic at hand, I had my fingers crossed hoping for a Bob film festival on my birthday (TCM, please take note for 2009). No such luck, but 3 quality films nonetheless. When Ladies Meet is recommended - Bob & Myrna Loy together are always a (rare) pleasure to watch. Earlier this month, TCM played the Robert Taylor/Joan Crawford remake of the story, which is still in my "to watch" queue.

As always, check your local listing for exact start time.

I dvr-ed a ton of those Cagney films back in January, and now that I've watched 'em all, I'm having withdrawals. :)
