This December 2018, Turner Classic Movies will be showing “Stagecoach” (1939) as part of its National Film Registry selections. While Tom Tyler was not the star of the movie – that title was reserved for John Wayne – Tom turned in the most compelling performance which has been critically acclaimed over the years since its release in 1939.
TCM host Alicia
Malone will introduce the five National Film Registry selections
starting the night of Tuesday, December 11, with the special showings
continuing on Wednesday, December 12. Even for those of you who have
seen “Stagecoach” multiple times or even know the movie by heart,
there is something special about seeing the movie on TCM as part of
an important showing – it is considered to be the greatest western
of its time.
Finally, on December
12, host Leonard Maltin and Dr. Carla Hayden of the Library of
Congress will reveal the list of films added to the National Film
Registry for 2018.
