TMP Recommends: Five Films on TCM, September 16 – 22

Welcome to TMP Recommends, the weekly series in which I share five TCM recommendations! I’m going to do things the lazy way today and simply copy TCM’s brief description of each film because I have a ton of coursework to do. (These posts take a surprising amount of time to put together, which I just don’t have today, but I didn’t want to skip a week of recs.) All times are listed in EST and come from the US version of the TCM schedule. Happy viewing!

    Oh yeah, ‘The Asphalt Jungle’…what a cool noir. Love the bit at the end with Sam Jaffe at the juke joint. Good direction, story, and acting all around….worth checking out if you haven’t seen it.
