TCM In February

Claudette Colbert Shirley Temple Oscar
The regular monthly preview of programming on Turner Classic Movies is up on The Hollywood Revue again.  It is time for the annual 31 Days of Oscar, so every film this month will be an Oscar nominee or winner.  Plus, every film will be connected to the movies before and after it by one star. 
Each movie features a star along with another star, and the other star is also in the movie that follows it, and so on and so on. So, by the time the 31 Days of Oscar, the final movie shown on March 2 will have a star in common with the 1st movie shown on February 1.
