TCM Schedule for Tuesday, October 23: The Projected Image
War is the common theme in several of the Spencer Tracy selections, and I'd particularly point out The Seventh Cross, not only for its theme but A) as an example of the diversity of Zinnemann's work and B) a chance to see the young Hume Cronyn and Jessica Tandy together.
