A Flickchart Guide to TCM in December

Jandy Hardesty

Jandy is especially drawn to classic, off-beat, and foreign film, but loves a good blockbuster action sequence, too. You can find her on Flickchart as faithx5. She also writes at The Frame, and co-hosts the occasional podcast Not at Odds at Row Three.

    You’re a madwoman, Leslie Howard is great! Just like in real-life (he worked as a spy during WWII), his characters are proper young English gentlemen on the surface, but the grin at the corners of his mouth and the rakish, adventurous glint in his eyes hint at a vast intelligence and secret breadth of experience. If he’d lived in a different time, he could have made a great Bond. He’s one of my favorite actors of the 1930s.

      Give me a list of recs. I’ve seen The Petrified Forest, Gone With the Wind, Intermezzo: A Love Story, Pygmalion, Romeo and Juliet, It’s Love I’m After, Smilin’ Through, and A Free Soul. I find him fairly insufferable. Maybe I’d prefer a movie about his real life as a spy (played by someone else)!

      49th Parallel and The Scarlet Pimpernel are the two I’d recommend that showcase what I see in him.

      British Agent by Michael Curtis probably does too, but I haven’t seen that one yet.
