We have a spot to talk about films on TCM, so how about having one for classic films on other channels. Although nobody is close to the quality or quantity of TCM, there are classics turning up on different channels if you know where to look for them. Fox Movie Channel just ran William Wellman's "THUNDER BIRDS" (in stunning Technicolor) which I've never seen before and they're showing "DARK JOURNEY" with Conrad Veidt and Vivian Leigh a couple of times in July. (I certainly hope it's better then all those PD DVDs going around) HBO and Cinemax, not to mention the Encore channels, have classics now and then, usually very late at night or very early in the day. I know everybody doesn't get all those channels, but we have folks here who don't get TCM. Just a thought.

Hi Mark,
We did have a thread devoted to movies on the Fox Movie Channel awhile ago (several technical crashes ago, that is), but that seems to have disappeared.

Why not start a new thread devoted to this topic in the General TV and Media area?

I always scan those listings for early morning on FMC too--as well as those on the Encore channels and AMC (even though they repeat way too much, and with commercials, yet). There are some really good, little seen flicks on that outlet.

If many other members would like a forum devoted to non-TCM channels broadcasting movies of interest, perhaps we should consider adding a section to that. I do think it is worthwhile having them listed somewhere here.

Don't forget IFC. I also wish we could have a thread on the Encore Western channel, Sundance, and a lot more. It would be easier if one person was responsible for each station, and concentrated on updating the thread for their channel. Other insights and postings would be welcome of course. After all, nobody knows everything! :wink:

I had a thread called "Classics Around The Dial." If it will help, look below.

Thanks so much, Chris. I was too rushed this morning to unearth that thread.

Is that what you had in mind, Mark?

Moira, That's pretty much what I had in mind. I just thought if it had it's own section and perhaps was located near the one for TCM it would be easy to find.

I never noticed that thread called 'Classics around the dial' but I found it and I just read it a short time ago. I agree it should have it's own 'forum identity'. It gets lost so easily and let's face it (not complaining mind you, Jon dear), this site does not have the best Search engine going for it. Actually, it could be mixed in with Musicals, Westerns, Dramas, etc.

Wha d ya think?
