Ann Dvorak on TCM in November
I woke up this morning, and did what I normally do – check email, check Facebook, check Twitter… and saw in my Twitter feed that Sweet MusicÂ aired early today on TCM. I did know about it. I meant to post about it. I failed to put it on my calendar. This is the kiss of death for any time sensitive task in my life these days. For those of you who actually rely on me for all your Ann Dvorak scheduling needs, I do apologize asÂ Sweet Music is not shown too terribly often and has not received an official release yet. It’s not my favorite Dvorak title, but it is one of her higher budget Warner Bros. films, and she fought hard to be in it.
I have actually launched into a new large film-related project. I am not quite ready to announce it yet, but paired with my librarian, mom, wife, and My Little PonyÂ obligations, Ann Dvorak has been pushed aside ever so slightly. I don’t want to neglect Ann completely, so right now I will take the opportunity to point out:
- I Sell AnythingÂ will air on Turner Classic Movies on Wednesday, November 11th at 9:30am PST.
- Side Streets will air on Turner Classic Movies on Thursday, November 12th at 3:00am PST.
I Sell Anything is included on the latestÂ Forbidden HollywoodÂ boxset. As I have discussed before, I think it’s an exceptional waste of Ann and I would be curious to hear what others think.
Side Streets has very little Ann in it, but Aline MacMahon is delightful and this is a quirky and enjoyable flick.
It looks like Ann is also on the TCM horizon for December and January, so I will be sure to put those on the calendar so as to prevent them from leaking out of my chaotic brain.
