Turner Classic Tuesday — April 26 – May 2, 2016

Each Tuesday Hunter highlights the best classic films airing in the coming week on TCM.

An oddball lineup this week, featuring lesser-known, but nevertheless fascinating entries in the oeuvre of Alec Guinness, Charlton Heston and Mickey Shaughnessy.


Tuesday, April 26
There’s a movie called Sex Kittens Go To College. Read about it. If the movie is even half as good as that description, well, it’s worth your hour and a half. 
Wednesday, April 27
The Coen Brother’s The Ladykillers was actually a sequel to a far superior 1955 British version starring…wait for it…Alec Guinness. The original Ladykillers is a funny little farce that’ll remind you of a stage play. 
Saturday, April 30
I’m not going to tell you what Soylent Green is, I’ll just say you probably don’t want to eat it. Even if it’s made of Edward G. Robinson. Damn, I spoiled it…well hell, the movie is 43 years old!
