Not on TCM This Month: Skylark

Before I ever got a copy of Skylark to watch, I had listened to it half a dozen times on my MP3 player. To be honest, I think I like the 1942 Lux Radio Theater version better! I'm not going through the plot here, that's what the IMDB is for.

If you've seen the movie - or not - download the MP3 and have a listen (you'll be taken to the Times Past OTR Archive - scroll way down!)

And if you search good enough on YouTube, you might find Skylark as well (hint hint).

Awesome match: Ray and Claudette Colbert

Not on TCM This Month: Are Husbands Necessary?

Are Husbands Necessary

One from the "haven't seen" list. You have to love classic poster art. The woman in red seems to be conjuring a black hole and or having a seizure.

Not on TCM This Month: Alias Nick Beal (1949)

Alias Nick Beal
Oh hell...

While TCM won't be playing Alias Nick Beal this month, we have the next best thing: the Screen Director's Playhouse version from December 28, 1950. And have no fear, the devil in this version is Ray Milland as well. Visit Archive.org with this link and scroll down to download the MP3.
