TCM, 3:30 p.m. ET

 

Today is Faye Dunaway day on TCM. And really, the lineup the channel is presenting of her films makes for one of the month’s strongest overall offerings. The morning movies are good enough, but starting with 1967’s influential Bonnie and Clyde, in which she starred opposite Warren Beatty, at 3:30 p.m. ET, it’s a five-film assault of dizzying creativity, spanning many different genres. At 5:30 p.m. ET, from 1970, it’s Little Big Man, a Western comedy of epic proportions starring Dustin Hoffman. At 8 p.m. ET, from 1973, it’s The Three Musketeers, a comedy swashbuckler. At 10 p.m. ET, from 1975, it’s Three Days of the Condor, a spy thriller starring Robert Redford. And at midnight ET, from 1974, it’s Chinatown, Jake, the seminal Roman Polanski period detective film starring Jack Nicholson. Great movies. Great leading men. And in all instances, great performances from Dunaway, all within an explosively fertile eight-year period.
