THE PRIVATE LIVES OF ELIZABETH AND ESSEX (1939)
Watching Bette Davis reign over England while trying to keep the Earl of Essex (Errol Flynn) in line is pretty fun. Apparently Davis and Flynn clashed so severely during filming that they injured each other. Despite this, or because of it, this is a great period drama, with beautiful costumes, sets and lighting. PS: Watch for Herbert Marshall and Joan Collins in The Virgin Queen (1955) which follows at 10 p.m. Eastern. Photo from Dr. Macro’s High Quality Movie Scans.

THE TRAIN (1965)
In the waning days of World War II, a French railway inspector who is also a member of the Resistance (Burt Lancaster…just go with it) is ordered by the Nazi-in-charge (Paul Scofield) to get a train through to Germany no matter what. Which wouldn’t be a big deal, except that nearly every important piece of art left in France is on that train. Directed by John Frankenheimer, this excellent film is an unpredictable chess match that’s as near to an anti-war statement as you’ll get in a WWII picture. Look for us on Twitter with #TCMParty.
