Recommended viewing on Turner Classic Movies for the week of Sunday, November 14 to Saturday, November 20. Some are films I’ve seen and some are ones I plan to check out. All times are listed in PST because that’s where I live; see the full schedule here.

TCM has changed the format of its schedule a bit, and as a result I’ve changed the format of these posts.
