Hideout

The guys at Libertas, "a forum for conservative thought on film" are big fans of Turner Classic Movies, (TCM) as am I. Unlike them, I don't feel the need to offer my daily reccommendations other than to say that it is the perfect TV hideout from the present sad state of American pop culture.
Their reccomendations from March 26 includes Alfred Hitchcock's The Birds.
One of the more famous films from one of the most celebrated directors doesn't need a plug from anybody. A casual movie fan will be aware of the movie even if he hadn't yet seen it. Turner Classic Movies shows most of the great movies like that. Pay attention long enough and you will see Gone With The Wind, Casablanca and most of the other greats. What Makes TCM so great are the films they show that aren't as celebrated. Take, for example, Shadow of a Doubt, another Hitchcock film that I hadn't heard of until I saw it on TCM a few months back. It stars Joseph Cotten as a handsome and debonair, murderous sociopath. Another great discovery I made is In a Lonely Place, starring Humphrey Bogart as a mercurial screenwriter who is suspected of murder he didn't commit, and whose violent behavior makes those who believe in his innocence have second thoughts.
I haven't yet checked the TCM April schedule, but I am sure that it contains hours of great entertainment for anyone who cares to look.
