  1. Great post Dawn. Looking forward to catch or record some of these amazing movies. Ginger has a special day on Wednesday with TCM showing all of her and Fred's film. That will truly be a heavenly day.

  2. Dawn & Monty, Don't miss The Major And The Minor, with Ginger and Ray Milland, Billy Wilder"s first film as a director. It's a BLAST!

  3. Monty, I can not wait. I'm just hoping nothing happens around here that would cause me to miss Mon. and Wed.

    Paul, I agree. The Major And The Minor is a wonderful movie. I'm looking forward to seeing it again. I'm keeping my fingers crossed to viewing two awesome days on TCM.
