Red's best, from TCM


September 20, 1997|By Chris Kaltenbach

At a glance TCM pays tribute to the late Red Skelton, a movie star long before he became a hit on TV, with a 24-hour marathon (6 a.m. today-6 a.m. tomorrow):

"I Dood It!" (a remake of Buster Keaton's "Spite Marriage"), with Eleanor Powell and Lena Horne (9 a.m.); "Ship's Ahoy," a ship-board variety show from 1942, with Eleanor Powell, Bert Lahr and Frank Sinatra (1 p.m.); "Whistling In Brooklyn," with Ann Rutherford, which has him pitching against the Dodgers (3 p.m.); "Merton of the Movies," with Gloria Grahame (8 p.m.); and "Bathing Beauty," maybe the best of the bunch, with Esther Williams and Basil Rathbone (2: 30 a.m.).
