What to Watch #50: March 19 – 31

Welcome to the final installment of the What to Watch series. Given the small response to these posts each week, I have decided that the time I dedicate to putting them together each Tuesday morning would be better spent watching a film or two (especially since graduate school has led to a steep decrease in my viewing habits). The “What to Watch” category is not completely going away — I’ll still post single-film recommendations on occasion, just not weekly. Hope those of you who have enjoyed this series will understand, and thanks for a great 50-installment run!

Since I have decided to discontinue these weekly recommendation posts, this list will cover the rest of the month of March. As usual, all times are listed in EST and subject to change — check your local schedule for updates!

  1. I don’t always post because I forget my password. But not this time! You don’t recommend checking out on Wednesday, March 19, Make Me a Star (Joan Blondell) and the string of Betty Compson flicks!

  2. Oh, that’s just great…I finally have access to TCM, and your post of recommendations disappears! Oh well…I enjoyed it while it lasted. I’ll just have to send my long, long list of recommendations in a separate e-mail…daily. :)

    Goodbye, What to Watch!

    1. Ah, now I feel bad! It is out of necessity, though. Time has not been on my side lately. And fear not! There are plenty of other bloggers who post about TCM’s programming. The Hollywood Revue (hollywoodrevue.wordpress.com) does a “What’s on TCM” post every month, which I really enjoy.
