Oy, I almost forgot to tell you this.

Today is Melvyn Douglas Day on TCM. He’s one of my all-time favorite classic movie actors and would have been 110 years old today if he hadn’t died in 1981. To celebrate, TCM is showing an assortment of Melvyn’s films all day and it’s not too late to watch or record some of them. These include: The Vampire Bat, Prestige, Dangerous Corner, She Married Her Boss, And So They Were Married, Theodora Goes Wild, I’ll Take Romance, Good Girls Go to Paris, Tell No Tales and On the Loose. Frankly, my favorite Melvyn Douglas movies — The Old Dark House, Ninotchka, Mr. Blandings Builds His Dream House and Too Many Husbands — don’t appear on this list, but there’s still a lot to enjoy here. I especially like Theodore Goes Wild because he plays such an adorable pest chasing Irene Dunne.

And now I’m going to make the bed and look around for something to eat. I wish I had an Egg McMuffin. Thank you for reading this.
