This Week on TCM: SATURDAY is the Night

One of five great movies on Saturday night

THE SEA WOLF (1941) is on Friday at 930am with Edward G Robinson tormenting John Garfield and Ida Lupino in a powerful ocean bound story.  It's riveting and will keep your interest.

VOICE OF THE WHISTLER (1945) is on at 1045am which continues the Columbia B-series with Richard Dix.

Saturday night is the Must See Night of the Week-- its a night full of 'death traps' and suspense-- starting with SUNRISE (1927) which is The Essentials this week at 8pm directed by FW Murnau this silent film will keep you glued to your set.

Then we have STRANGERS ON A TRAIN (1951) at 10pm which is one of Hitch's better post 1950 films about two characters who meet on a train and contemplate murder.

At Midnight is DIAL M FOR MURDER (1954) which is Hitch's take on the stage play-- and it looks like a stage play with a very early inspiration for COLUMBO.

At 2am is NIAGARA (1952) with Marilyn Monroe and Joseph Cotton in a movie that could have been a Hitch film, and we wrap up the night at 345am with THE POSTMAN ALWAYS RINGS TWICE (1946) which is a great film noir.
