Heather T, I like them too. I found this one on Wikipedia, god bless it.
Maggie it played on TCM which is doing its usual “31 days of Oscar”, which is how I got to see it. I love these old movies. It’s a shame that the Academy no longer considers comedies “worthy”.

Well, if you don’t mind waiting another month it’s replaying on TCM March 25th.
I was looking through the schedule for the rest of March and almost got excited about a film adaptation of Wuthering Heights until I read the description. “A married noblewoman fights her lifelong attraction to a charismatic gypsy.” Uhhh…a gypsy?? Who says?? (I know there’s speculation on Heathcliff’s origins, and I guess a gypsy is as valid a take as any other but…)
And as much as I don’t particularly like the book I do admire parts of it and respect it a great deal. I don’t know if I’m up for a cinematic butchering even if it does have Laurence Olivier.

I really must check TCM’s website more often. They have some great movies on. And a handy reminder feature for when my internet friends forget to tell me when great movies are coming on… \:|
