    I haven't seen Napoleon yet (kind of a shame because I live in Waterloo where he was defeated) but I highly recommend The Ox-Bow Incident, a very powerfull drama...

    Last year TCM did a thirty one days of oscar programming for the entire month of march (where everythign that plyaed was at least nominated for an oscar) are they doing this again this year. Looking at a day like MAr 1st, or 16th it seems like they have really great programming for this month

    Mar 1st

    The 400 blows

    little women (1946)

    the yearling

    Empire of the Sun

    National Velvet

    Rebel without a cause

    Splendor in the grass

    to kill a mockingbird

    american grafitti

    war games

    angels with dirty faces

    Mar 16th

    They were expendable

    from ehre to eternity

    the dirty dozen

    the guns of navarone

    sergaent york

    casablanca

    all quiet on teh western front

    the train

    mrs miniver

    battleground

    these look like the two best days in march, but every other day seems unusually exceptional.

    Thanks for the alert, Robert. I don't think I have seen Napoleon.

    Napoleon is one of the best silents ever made, period!

    I saw it on TCM last month and it was indeed a great presentation. (They also showed the 4-hour version of Greed).

    If there was a DVD for Napoleon, I'd buy faster than one of Abel Gance's "Russian montage" sequences!

    Perhaps this deserves its own thread. The director's cut of "The Alamo" (203 minutes, letterboxed) is scheduled on Turner Classics on March 14th at 8:30 p.m. (PST).

    Turner's monthly schedule is worth printing. It's loaded with gems.

    A bit late: TCM is halfway through The Sting right now. Never seen it, didn't get the DVD since it's not in the appropriate aspect ratio, now it's on, it's letterboxed, and I've missed it...

    I think, if they release the Jazz singer on DVD, they should at least atempt to restore the picture and sound if possible. Just like how they did for Citizen Kane. The Jazz Singer is not the best movie it the world, but it is worth a look since it is a milestone.

    Since I don't want to spend money on the DVD, does anyone know when "The Birth of a Nation" will be on TCM
