TCM In November

Natalie Wood
The Hollywood Revue's monthly preview of programming on TCM is out again.  The Star of the Month is Natalie Wood, and there is a spotlight on documentaries.  Most of Ms. Wood's work was outside what I arbitrarily label the Swing Era, but as usual, there are plenty of films from the 1930's and 1940's.  November 10 is Claude Rains' birthday, with five of his movies airing, including Caesar and Cleopatra and The Invisible Man.  Joel McCrae has several films playing the next day, including Foreign Correspondent and Sullivan's Travels.
