TCM Top Ten for May 2014

TCMTop10

If you’re like me the summer time is the best season for movie watching.  Of course, the majority of movie patrons trot out to the local multiplex but who needs the theater when TCM’s showing nothing but classics all summer?  I whittled this list down from 22 to ten which is no mean feat!  Hopefully, there’s a little bit of something for everyone!

**All times are listed as Pacific so plan accordingly.  Scheduled dates and times change at TCM’s discretion**

IdealHusband

Costume drama impresario Alexander Korda tackling the acerbic Oscar Wilde?  Sign me up!  An Ideal Husband’s been remade several times, but I’ve yet to experience one from the studio era.  There isn’t much star power other than Korda and Paulette Goddard as wife who stays with her husband (Michael Wilding), a prominent politician being blackmailed.  I’m intrigued whether this holds up against the 1999 take, and how saucy the script gets for 1947 audiences.  An Ideal Husband airs early, 7am, on May 4th.
