Spielberg, Scorsese & Anderson’s TCM Picks


In June came the news that the beloved cinema curation network Turner Classic Movies was laying off its leadership, with numerous key staff who had worked there for years all losing their job.

That left the future of TCM up in the air, which drew swift backlash not just from the public but plenty of Hollywood filmmakers, including the likes of Steven Spielberg, Martin Scorsese and Paul Thomas Anderson, who got in touch with Warner Bros. Discovery CEO David Zaslav.

Whatever happened in that meeting led Zaslav to re-hiring one of TCM’s key executives whilst also taking on Spielberg, Scorsese, and Anderson as members of an advisory panel that will curate TCM through until at least June of 2024.

Now, all three of those famed filmmakers have released their film picks for this month that will air on TCM. They are as follows:

Spielberg: Vincente Minnelli’s “Meet Me in St. Louis” (1944), Douglas Sirk’s “Imitation of Life” (1959), Gordon Douglas’s “Them!” (1954), Minnelli’s “The Bad and the Beautiful” (1952), and Alfred Hitchcock’s “The Wrong Man” (1957).

Scorsese: Mark Robson’s “Isle of the Dead” (1945), Henry Koster’s “Two Sisters from Boston” (1946), Victor Fleming’s “Red Dust” (1932), Arthur Crabtree’s “Madonna of the Seven Moons” (1945), and Joseph Losey’s “Accident” (1967).

Anderson: John Farrow’s “His Kind of Woman” (1951), Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger’s “Night Ambush” (1957), Barry Levinson’s “Diner” (1982), Alexander Mackendrick’s “Sweet Smell of Success” (1957), Basil Dearden’s “Victim” (1961).

It’s expected at least one video from one of the directors will be produced each month during the time that they are advisors. Spielberg did this month with Spielberg’s up at Indiewire.
