Each Tuesday Hunter highlights the best classic films airing in the coming week on TCM.
My penchant for picking pictures with Orson Welles and Gary Cooper continues unabated. Clearly I have a type.

Perhaps my favorite decade for film was the 1950s. It bridged the Old Hollywood class of the 1930s and 1940s, with the more honest, outspoken, and organic New Hollywood of the 1960s and 1970s. These three films give a strong representation of the cinematic diversity the 1950s displayed.
In this Short Rounds episode, Chris and Hunter review the film considered by many to be the scariest of the decade, The Babadook. And that’s it. What? You wanted more? It’s our week off. Give us a break!
