Site News for February 2018

Hey everyone. Rough month– extended houseguests, travel, programs at work, etc. But I think February will be different, so stick around.

As with most Februarys, the showings on TCM are pretty predictable. There are a lot of great movies here, don’t get me wrong, and if you haven’t seen any of them, see them. But, yeah.

Pre-Code Hollywood Movies on TCM in February

Please note: All times listed here are Eastern Standard. This schedule is subject to change (like if someone dies or the world ends– you know how it is). See the full listings for the month here. If you subscribe to TCM via cable, you can watch TCM online via the TCM Watch site. If you don’t have cable, check out Sling TV, where (Americans) can watch TCM online or on their Roku for only $25/month. Plus you get HGTV and Food Network. That’s how I got my wife to okay it.

My least favorite month on TCM. Predictable indeed.

Thank you for your amazing website. I see that you have listed “Skippy”, “Little Women”, and “Lady for a Day”, as Pre-Code movies on TCM this month, but I don’t see these 3 films in your overall list of Pre-Code movies. Is there some debate as to whether these 3 films qualify as pre-code?
