Thanksgiving with TCM


Thanksgiving with Turner Classic Movies

It’s that time of year again. The time when leaves have completed their journey to the ground, winter jackets become a permanent fixture, and turkeys everywhere are in a constant state of panic.  Yes, it’s Thanksgiving time. Naturally most people will be spending that time with their family – catching up with aunt what’s-her-name immediately followed by eating their weight in mashed potatoes, and then watching the big game. However, if you are like me, the big game doesn’t really matter much to you. Don’t get me wrong; I have nothing against football… except maybe watching it. Sorry sports fan, it’s never been my thing. So, instead of watching the Bears take on the Packers, I will be watching Katherine Hepburn take on Spencer Tracy.

That’s right. Starting at 8:00pm, Turner Classic Movies will be playing five back-to-back Hepburn/Tracy films. So after you’re done with your turkey and had about as much family time as you can handle, join me on Thanksgiving night. We can laugh together from the comfort of our own rooms and be thankful for these wonderful movies.

Happy Thanksgiving!
