This year's theme Most Wanted: Crime and Justice in Film From the website:

Since the beginning of cinema, filmmakers around the world have long been captivated by the inherent conflict between criminal endeavors and the pursuit of justice. A century’s worth of struggles between killers, crooks, convicts and the police, G-Men, amateur sleuths and other supposed keepers of the peace have entertained and thrilled audiences and storytellers alike. But movies also remind us that it’s not just simply about cops and robbers or good versus evil. Justice can be defined very differently when it comes to those wrongfully accused and pursued, to men and women of color, or when it’s corrupt authorities themselves who have violated the very law they are sworn to uphold. In those stories, what is most wanted is justice that has been denied.

Films will be updated on TCM Classic Film Festival link below as more films are announced.

I never really thought about crime and justice in film until I watched That's Entertainment.

Per an email just received.

Our big screen exploration of our central Festival theme, Most Wanted: Crime and Justice in Film, will include a 50th anniversary screening of the neo-noir masterpiece CHINATOWN (1974) and the screwball detective comedy THE MAD MISS MANTON (1938) starring Barbara Stanwyck.

Pre-Code fans can enjoy a world premiere restoration, created by The Film Foundation and Universal Pictures, of the Wyatt Earp-inspired Western LAW AND ORDER (1932) starring Walter Huston and the melodrama ONLY YESTERDAY (1933) featuring Margaret Sullavan’s big screen acting debut.

And concluding this round of lineup additions, master of suspense Alfred Hitchcock’s genius will be on full display with a world-premiere restoration of NORTH BY NORTHWEST (1959) along with a 70th anniversary presentation of REAR WINDOW (1954).

Link to Festival in first post has been updated to include latest films added.
