If so many of the early films are PD, I wonder why TCM Canada isn't airing all of them?

The films might be in the public domain in the US, but might not be in Canada.

I don't have the DVR space, but can whoever is recording these look out for what licensor (if any) is present at the beginning?

We know that (in addition to the already announced titles) that Young and Innocent and Sabotage are with Criterion.

I'm most curious as to the status of Secret Agent and Number 17 - as both of those have had Janus credits at some point in time, but nothing all that recent. Also if someone could check Easy Virtue and The Pleasure Garden (as both of those should be from the same source as The Lodger). I'd expect Lionsgate / Studio Canal on the other Hitchcock silents not mentioned above.

Much obliged!

For some reason TCM has been keeping their evening lineup for today (December 13th) a secret, as both my DVR + the website indicate TBA.

The TCM forum isn't sure what's playing either, but say the lineup will be "announced live on air"

I've never seen them do this in all the years I've been following. I don't have DVR space to record the entire 10 hour block - so I'll probably miss out. I just hope its not some rare / special films that they otherwise don't want to make public until the last minute. Or perhaps this conspiracy will just be for something mundane.

So everyone tune in tomorrow and find out whats going on.

Yeah, this is what ended up being the case. Although I'm disappointed that they didn't chose some of the more difficult to see / rarer choices from the inductee list (like how is anyone supposed to see Lives of Performers (1972)?)

That’s too bad, I liked Tiffany Vazquez. I wonder why she’s being asked to leave and or being fired?

She's not been fired - she's been reassigned to a special events role. So it's possible she might become the main person for the Fathom Events intros, or something like that.

I like Alicia Malone well enough, but the new Filmstruck TCM Selects intros with Mankiewicz really hit home with a level of polish that I've felt lacking in much of the Filmstruck original content. I look forward to seeing her get to work on some hopefully better material on the actual channel.

Great! It just seemed by Werewolf by Night’s comment that she was permanently leaving, but at least she’s still at the network, so thanks for clarifying.

Alicia Malone looks like Jane Levy. I hope you all appreciated my hard-hitting take on this news

She’ll still continue all of her duties with Filmstruck.

TCM really kept a tight lid on this news; Malone's intros have already started airing today.
