Movie Monday: TCM This Week; Tarzan at the Grand Hotel

Tonight at 10:15 TCM is showing GRAND HOTEL which is a star-packed comedy from the early 30s.  It takes a bit of patience for movies of this era but the acting and the production values are all top notch.

On Wednesday night at 8 they're running TARZAN'S SECRET TREASURE (1938) which is one of the best of the early Tarzan films-- if you think these are kiddie junk you'll be surprised-- while the entertainment is certainly more "wholesome" than today's Jack Black style films there is a lot of violence and treachery in this one which tells the story of the secret elephant graveyard loaded with Ivory in Tarzan's jungle.

Thursday night is monster movie night-- pop the popcorn and settle back for a lineup of underwater mayhem with IT CAME FROM BENEATH THE SEA, MONSTER THAT CHALLENGED THE WORLD and THE BEAST FROM 20,000 FATHOMS-- if you don't have to work Friday there are more after these three, but these will bring you back to the drive in age.
