    No Holiday Inn??? …last time I saw it on TCM, about 5 years ago, the commentator made a disclaimer regarding the use of “black face”…really? The movie was made in 1942…TCM is becoming too woke…on the flip side, will they have an “offence disclaimer ” prior to “Brokeback mountain “? …really? …simulated sex between men….I’m sure many people may find that offensive, also……..

      What goes on here? Where is Susan Slept Here, The Cheaters, The Holly and The Ivy, The Lemon Drop Kid, Come to the Stable, Miracle On 34th Street, a Christmas Carol, A Christmas Story, White Christmas, and Holiday Inn?????
      We depend on TCM in December for our older Christmas movies.
      The Christmas movies made years ago are so much better than the movies that are being made now. Your programming department needs to WAKE UP and listen to what your subscribers want to see!!

    That is it? Come on now, TCM can do better than that.
    Where is Remember the Night? IAWL?
    How about some classic cartoons that have Christmas themes. Merrie Melodies, Looney Tunes, etc
    have a lot of Christmas themed cartoon shorts.
    This is where I come to watch Christmas movies that have a real Christmas feel/message, rather than some of the trash that is out these days.

    Where’s Holiday Inn? The Holly and the Ivy? Miracle on 34th Street with Natalie Wood? A CHRISTmas Carol with Alistair Sim? A CHRISTmas Carol with Reginald Owen? The Man Who Came to Dinner? Geez, TCM you have changed and not for the good or for tradition!!!
