TCM Schedule for Wednesday, October 3: Leo McCarey's Birthday and Classic Horror
I thought for a moment it was James Gleason's birthday, as that wonderful character actor turns up multiple times in today's schedule. But it's actually time for a tribute to the great director Leo McCarey, born on this day in 1898.
