TCM's 31 Days of Oscar Film Festival

24 February 2010
I've spent the past couple of days in bed with a horrendous cold. At least, I'm hoping it's just a cold and that I get over it soon. Anyway, all I want to do is lay in bed with my tissues and juice and watch movies. Not just any movies though, really good classic movies.

It seems I've picked a good time to be ill because Turner Classic Movies is in the middle of it's 31 Days of Oscar film celebration. 31 days of uncut, commercial free Academy Award nominated and winning films. This year they are all related "6 Degrees of Kevin Bacon" style starting with Only When I Laugh with Kevin Bacon and James Coco, and ending with Diner with Mickey Rourke and Kevin Bacon. In between are so many great films, including many of my personal favorites like The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance, Mrs. Miniver, From Here to Eternity, The Philadelphia Story, The Maltese Falcon, Giant, and Adam's Rib just to name a few. You can check my right side bar for the full schedule. I bet you find at least one movie you love.

No, I'm not going to stay in bed until the end of this film festival, but I am sure to be tuning into some great films while they are on. The line up is really good and there are many films that are great for family viewing. Ashley is looking forward to Royal Wedding and West Side Story. Tristen is eagerly awaiting The Greatest Show On Earth. Dan loves Cool Hand Luke, so I know we will be tuning into that one. As for me, there aren't many classic movies that I don't like! So check them out and enjoy!

Hello fellow SITS lady! Wishing I still had TCM, but we got rid of cable to save money. Subscribed to your feed via the Follow Me Club at MBC. Please visit me at
