It's a good chance to catch "The Naked City",  which TCM doesn't show as often as the other classics.  I suppose one reason might be, that it's not quite the same, mass appeal "crowd-pleaser" that the others are.  It has a gritty, neorealist style.  But richly rewarding to watch!

 

Barry Fitzgerald's good in this, and I always love Howard Duff, a noir stalwart.

These are some magnificent films, but there is an important speech scheduled for 9:00 p.m.   All who have an interest in our nation would be wise to tune in, no matter what your politics.
