Why is “Scrooge”, with Alistair Sim (1951), not on your schedule?
Why doesn’t the voice match up to the movies today. December 18. A couple of my favorites are on but turned the channel.
Why isn’t “Holiday Inn” on the Schedule?
My thoughts exactly. It’s a classic.
I’m disappointed Three Godfathers with John Wayne is not on the schedule. It’s my favorite John Wayne movie.
Why are you not running the movie White Christmas? Thank you for the info
Hi Anna, AMC has the rights this year to air White Christmas: https://www.countdownuntilchristmas.com/amc-best-christmas-ever/
I don’t see Harvey on tcm this xmas why?????
I saw an ad for” It’s a Wonderfl Life” It said it was on Dec. 18th and 21st, but I can’t find it on your schedule. What’s the deal?
I also looked for it. Why isn’t it being shown?
And where’s Miracle on 34th Street; It’s a Wonderful Life???
I am guessing many of the streaming services now own the rights to most of the Christmas classics. We watched the original “Miracle on 34th Street” on Amazon Prime (for free b/c it is included in the subscription price)
But what happened to “Since You Went Away”??
Since it begins with and ends with Christmas, TCM always aired it during the holidays.
Why isn’t A Christmas Carol staring George C Scott being aired on your channel?
Unfortunately, as of today, it is not scheduled to air on any channel this holiday season (2022). The version with George C Scott is my personal favorite, very disappointing.
