“A Life of Her Own” was on TCM (but I forgot to blog about it)

I hope no Ann Dvorak fans actually rely on me to alert them when her movies are airing, because they would have missed yesterday’s screening of A Life of Her Own on Turner Classic Movies. In my defense, I am six months pregnant and seem to be forgetting a lot of things lately, though eve I am surprised that Ann-D could slip my mind.

I have discusses this film on a couple of different posts:

Divine Dvorak Death Scenes

It’s worth pointing out once again that this small role (I think she has less than ten minutes of screen time) is one of her most memorable, and I stand by my belief that this is the one film she should have gotten an Oscar nomination for.

I am deeply embarrassed to have dropped the ball on this one, and have already put safeguards in place for when Murder in the Clouds airs in May.

    Dang! Two of my favorites (Ann and Lana) on TCM and I missed it! I’ve heard and read ‘A Life Of Her Own’ isn’t that great, but that Dvorak redeems it with her great performance. I’m so ticked off right now that I missed it! Keep up the good work-great site! Rob

    Gee Rob, I hope you didn’t miss this one because of my forgetfulness! I only watched A Life of Her Own it its entirety once, about 12 years ago and have not been able to do it a second time. However, I could watch Ann’s scenes over and over (and have). Hopefully TCM will run a repeat screening in the near future.
