Turner Classic Movies has posted the schedule of their upcoming 2011 TCM Classic Film Festival. The highlight where this blog is concerned is a tribute to Roy Rogers. He’d be 100 this year.
Among the pictures being shown is one of the better ones — Trigger Jr. (1950), directed by William Witney in Trucolor. The opportunity to see this in 35mm is a rare treat. This is a wonderful movie. (One could make a pretty strong case that I live on the wrong side of the country.)
The screenings will include a talk from Cheryl Rogers-Barnett. I spoke to her a few months ago about her folks, Trail Of Robin Hood (1950) and Son Of Paleface (1952). A really, really nice lady.
