Happy Birthday (A Day Early), Roz!

                          Roz and Bob in Fast and Loose (1939)

TCM may have overlooked Bob on his birthday, but at least Roz rates a seven-movie marathon on hers.  I'm listing the movies being shown tomorrow (Wednesday, June 4th), in case you don't already have them marked in your copy of NOW PLAYING.  All times listed are PDT.

             6:15 a.m. - They Met in Bombay (1941)

             8:00 a.m. - Fast and Loose (1939) *

             9:30 a.m. - A Majority of One (1961)

             12 noon   - Auntie Mame (1958) **

             2:30 p.m. - The Trouble with Angels (1966)

             4:30 p.m.  - No Time for Comedy (1940)

             6:15 p.m. - The Feminine Touch (1941)

*  TCM is showing two more of Bob's movies on Thursday, June 6th:

             8:30 a.m. - Forsaking All Others (1934), another Roz film!

             4:15 p.m. - June Bride (1948)

** Auntie Mame is one of those movies that when you run across it flipping channels, you end up watching the rest of the movie.  Just a fantastic performance by Roz.

I love Roz. She brought out the best in so many of her co-stars. (ESPECIALLY Bob)!

Yes, a class act to the core. You have the feeling that Hollywood did not change her, but she mostly changed the world around her.
