TCM Schedule for Tuesday, April 16: 100th Birthday: Henry Mancini [View all]

You don't have to wait until dark. All day and all evening TCM's set to celebrate the fabulous film composer Mr. Mancini!

I'd note also that there's a rarity on the schedule, namely A Carol for Another Christmas, which usually shows up in December but is nevertheless timely.
