TCM Classic Film Festival Schedule

By Lara Gabrielle Fowler

After a long wait, TCM has finally announced its schedule for the 2013 TCM Classic Film Festival. While there are a few final slots left to fill, this is more or less the final tally of films. I will, of course, keep you updated on any changes.

The following list is taken from TCM’s website. As the theme is “Travel in the Movies,” TCM has divided most of the films into different categories as they relate to travel, leaving one category for the essential films that will be shown.

During the festival, please feel free to keep in contact with me, let me know your comments, thoughts, and requests for coverage.

Enjoy!

  1. Here’s my list:
    Dial M for Murder (what are your impressions of the apartment on the big screen?)
    Flying Down to Rio (just because)
    To Sir, With Love (do the city scenes look even more gritty on the big screen?)
    Eva Marie Saint Live (interested in hearing about her experiences)
    A Room with a View (your impressions)
