Movies to Watch


In honor of Jimmy Stewart's 100th birthday, TCM is showing several of his movies throughout the day Tuesday (and early Wednesday), including

  • The Philadelphia Story, co-starring Katharine "Fingernails on a Chalkboard" Hepburn, at 10:30 a.m. (Central)
  • The Glenn Miller Story, at 12:30 p.m.
  • The Man Who Knew Too Much, a Hitchcock film co-starring Doris Day, at 2:30 p.m.
  • Vertigo, co-starring Kim Novak, at 4:45 p.m.
  • Rear Window, co-starring Grace Kelly, at 7 p.m.
  • Mr. Smith Goes to Washington, a Frank Capra movie, at 2 a.m. (Wed.)
  • Harvey, co-starring an invisible rabbit, at 4:15 a.m. (Wed.)
The original Ocean's Eleven, starring Frank Sinatra, comes on TCM at 7 p.m. Wednesday.

If you've been wanting, your whole life, to see Planet of the Apes (Charlton Heston version), it comes on AMC at 4:30 p.m. Friday.

Both AMC and TCM are showing war movies all weekend, in honor of Memorial Day, but the most important movie event of the week, by far, is The Karate Kid, showing on AMC at 7 p.m. Saturday.

And, just as you are settling back in Monday evening, wishing it were a four-day weekend instead of three, AMC is showing the hilarious movie M*A*S*H at 7 p.m. That should make it a little better.
