    TCM will also be running a series of Laurel & Hardy films on Sunday, July 17, beginning at 6:30 CST.

    Also on Sunday, July 17, AMC will be showing Island in the Skies at 4:45 CST (also shown on Saturday at 7:00 CST), followed by The High and the Mighty at 7:00 CST. Whether The High and the Mighty will be shown in the correct aspect ratio, probably not, but it might happen on its first showing. Aspect ratio for Island in the Skies is 1.37, so no problem there. Now, if they could just rid of those damn commercials!

    I wonder if Corvette Summer aged well.

    What Invasion of the Body Snatchers? 78 version?
