Remember? (1939) is playing on TCM on Mon, March 04, 2013 10:00 PM est. Closed captioned.


Lew Ayres, Robert Taylor and Greer Garson in “Remember”

Remember, 1939. Dir: Norman Z. McLeod, Cast: Robert Taylor, Greer Garson, Lew Ayres,  Billie Burke, Reginald Owen, Laura Hope Crews, Henry Travers, Sig Ruman.  Comedy about bickering couple taking potion which gives them amnesia–whereupon they fall in love all over again.  This isn’t one of Mr. Taylor’s best but it has its moments..

 The Youngest Profession (1943) is playing on TCM on Mon, March 04, 2013 05:15 AM est.  Closed captioned.  *NOTE*:A TCM programming day begins at 6:00am EST on the calendar day listed and runs to 5:59am EST in the morning on the next day. Hours listed at 12:00am to 5:59am EST in your reminder will be shown on the NEXT calendar day.


Robert Taylor and Marcia Mae Jones.

Teenage autograph seekers cause trouble at MGM. Director: Edward Buzzell. Cast: Virginia Weidler, Jean Porter, Edward Arnold, John Carroll, Agnes Moorehead, Scotty Beckett. Weidler and Porter are incurable (and obnoxious) autograph hounds in innocent little film with many MGM guest stars (including Lana Turner, William Powell, Robert Taylor, Greer Garson, and Walter Pidgeon). Not really a Robert Taylor movie, although he is in it briefly.  This is a shameless bit of MGM propaganda but is entertaining.

When Ladies Meet  (1941)”is playing on TCM on Mon, March 04, 2013 11:30 PM est. Closed captioned.


Robert Taylor, Joan Crawford, Greer Garson and Herbert Marshall

.A female novelist doesn’t realize her new friend is the wife whose husband she’s trying to steal.  Director: Robert Z. Leonard. Joan Crawford, Robert Taylor, Greer Garson, Herbert Marshall, Spring Byington.  This sleek and sophisticated comedy is essentially a morality play about relationships, respect and honesty.  The all-star cast is uniformly good and Taylor is excellent.

About giraffe44

I became a Robert Taylor fan at the age of 15 when his TV show, "The Detectives" premiered. My mother wanted to watch it because she remembered Mr. Taylor from the thirties. I took one look and that was it. I spent the rest of my high school career watching Robert Taylor movies on late night TV, buying photos of him, making scrapbooks and being a typical teenager. College, marriage and career intervened. I remember being sad when Mr. Taylor died. I mailed two huge scrapbooks to Ursula Thiess. I hope she got them. Time passed, retirement, moving to Florida. Then in 2012 my husband Fred pointed that there were two Robert Taylor movies that evening on Turner Classic Movies--"Ivanhoe" and "Quentin Durward." I watched both and it happened all over again. I started this blog both for fans and for people who didn't know about Robert Taylor. As the blog passes 200,000 views I'm delighted that so many people have come by and hope it will help preserve the legacy of this fine actor and equally good man.

    It would be great if the schedule of US networks could be the same (or at least very similar) in all countries where they are available. Unfortunately, the TCM version we see here is full of long commercial breaks (every 30 min.) and mostly lacks of all those wonderful classic movies… unless by “classic movies” you mean John Travolta’s, Clint Eastwood’s or The X Files, especially at prime time. In terms of quality and variety regarding classics, the local TCM has nothing to do with the old TNT I used to watch 15-20 years ago, from which I taped several dozens of films.
    Fortunately, I no longer need TCM to watch any classic movies whenever I want to, but it’s always refreshing to catch the reruns on TV. So, enjoy these next Monday!

    Well, many films are available on DVD; since I still have my old VCR, I can play the 200+ films I taped from TV; there’s film collectors around the world willing to trade their recordings… and there’s also Ebay and YouTube! 🙂
