Classic Movies on a Snow Day

Since you're home anyway…

Turner Classic Movies has a pretty good midday lineup:

10:15am  The Thin Man (1934)
12:00  Citizen Kane (1941)
2:00pm  Charlie Chaplin's The Great Dictator (1940)

You could do a lot worse than that!  If you don't know the Thin Man series of movies, this is where you start; I promise you'll become a fan.  Citizen Kane is often acknowledged as the best movie ever made, and yet a lot of regular folks haven't given it a chance.  And whatever you think of Chaplin, you've got to be impressed with the gall of making fun of Hitler when no one else was!
