MOVIE MONDAY: TCM This Week; Sherlock Holmes
Ben Cumberbatch? Meh.
Robert Downey Jr? Please.
Jeremy Brett? Hmm. Okay, Jeremy Brett is the best Sherlock Holmes but second to him is Basil Rathbone and you can catch a four pack of his movies today starting at 1:30pm-- set your DVR or call in to work.
On Wednesday night at 8 you can catch Robert Mitchum as a deranged serial killer in NIGHT OF THE HUNTER-- one of the greatest of all suspense films from director Charles Laughton.
While on Thursday night you can tune in for the monster movie lineup with ATTACK OF THE 50 FOOT WOMAN at 8. Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned, especially if she's fifty feet tall.
Finally on Saturday night on the Essentials you have 1938's BRINGING UP BABY-- anyone who hasn't seen this laugh out loud farce with Cary Grant and Katherine Hepburn should cancel plans and plop themselves in front of the TV and get ready for some really great moments.
