Our April Picks on the Classic Movie Hub Channel
April Birthdays and Springtime Fun!

Here we go… This month’s free streaming picks for our Classic Movie Hub Channel at Best Classics Ever (BCE) – the mega streaming channel for classic movies and TV shows!

That said, here are some of our April classic movie picks available for FREE STREAMING all month long on the CMH Channel. All you need to do is click on the movie/show of your choice, then click ‘play’ — you do not have to opt for a 7-day trial.

In celebration of April Birthdays, we’re featuring two comic geniuses – Charlie Chaplin (born Apr 16, 1889) with his silent classic, The Kid, from 1921, and Harold Lloyd (April 20, 1893) with his screwball talkie, The Milky Way, from 1936. We’re also celebrating Spencer Tracy’s birthday (Apr 5, 1900) with Father’s Little Dividend, also starring Elizabeth Taylor and Joan Bennett — as well as Gregory Peck’s birthday (April 5, 1916) with The Snows of Kilimanjaro. We’ll also be showing Of Human Bondage starring Bette Davis (born April 5, 1908), Oliver Twist starring Sir Alec Guinness (born April 2, 1914), and Royal Wedding starring Jane Powell (April 1, 1929) co-starring Fred Astaire and directed by Stanley Donen (April 13, 1924).
