Did you know that one of Kermit the Frog's favorite movies is Singin' in the Rain?
November is a month of guest programmers on Turner Classic Movies, which means that we will learn all about the favorite movies of random celebrities from various branches of entertainment and commerce. Tonight the channel is featuring some of Rose McGowan's favorite classic films, like The Night of the Hunter (1955) and Out of the Past (1947).
It's oddly fascinating to learn about these peoples' favorite old films, like funny man Jerry Stiller's suggested movies are the 1948 drama I Remember Mama and the religiously-themed Boys Town. Martha Stewart's night of programming (November 30) includes Mr. Blandings Builds His Dream House and Anna Karenina. Kicking things off on the first of November, Whoopi Goldberg brought us the 1946 version of Beauty and the Beast, and Danny Devito's pick of The Battle of Algiers will be shown on November 10.
Among the more random guest programmers are The Food Network's Alton Brown (who has selected the 1967 movie Point Blank), and Maria Menounos with her selection of The Hustler. Donald Trump picked The African Queen on November 3 and one of Matt Groening's favorite films is apparently Blues in the Night.
Which old movies would you pick if you could be a guest programmer on TCM?
