Wow! The Muppets Take Manhattan.
Seems to be the only one ever shown on TCM.
Seems odd Disney would let it out.
I'm also excited to see Dead Men Don't Wear Plaid.
The rest of the schedule looks good as well.
Thanks cmovieviewer!

Daughter of Shanghai (1937), which is being shown, is a rare example of an early Hollywood film where the Asian characters are the protagonists. Anna May Wong and Philip Ann play the leads. The only problem with the film is that it's too short.

How is In the Name of the Father a premiere in both April and May? The Thin Red Line still doesn't get on the Memorial Day weekend. I'm pleased to see the premiere of Synecdoche, New York

Obviously not a premiere in May - fixed it, thank you.

Based on the TCM e-mail that came out today, I should point out that the TCM Star of the Month for May is Sessue Hayakawa.

Other Asian stars are also featured after primetime on Mondays.
