What to Watch #25: September 4 – 10

TCM’s Summer Under the Stars programming has officially ended, so today TMP returns to the usual Tuesday routine of regular “What to Watch” posts. In this series I take a look at the TCM schedule and list my top picks for each day, in hopes that you’ll watch or record them. All times are listed in EST and subject to change.

There are no new-to-me picks this week because I’m starting a new semester and will likely be in a school-related frenzy with very little movie time.

Linked film titles in this list will take you to previous TMP posts on the film.
