100th Birthday Tribute: Janis Paige
TCM, beginning at 8am
Catch a Classic!

Actress/singer Janis Paige, one of the last surviving stars of Hollywood’s golden age, turns 100 today (she was born Donna Mae Tjaden in Tacoma, Washington, on Sept. 16, 1922). Now retired, Paige had a lengthy career on the stage, and big and small screens, that stretched from 1944 to 2001. Her feature film appearances from the mid 1940s into the early ’60s comprised a comparatively smaller part of her work compared to theater and television roles, but she still managed to be a big-screen scene stealer even in supporting roles, as you can see when Turner Classic Movies celebrates Paige’s birthday with a seven-movie marathon. The lineup features, in order: the film noir Her Kind of Man (1946), the actress’ third feature film; Winter Meeting (1948), a drama led by Bette Davis; Romance on the High Seas (1948), the Oscar-nominated musical romantic comedy that marked costar Doris Day’s film debut; One Sunday Afternoon (1948), a musical directed by Raoul Walsh and costarring Dennis Morgan; the 1949 comedy The House Across the Street; Silk Stockings (1957), the Fred Astaire- and Cyd Charisse-led musical romantic comedy that marked Paige’s return to a film role after a six-year absence; and one of Paige’s final film appearances before she turned her focus more toward TV and the stage: Bachelor in Paradise (1961), a romantic comedy costarring Bob Hope and Lana Turner.

Paths of Glory
TCM, 3pm
Catch a Classic!

Cowritten and directed by visionary filmmaker Stanley Kubrick, this searing 1957 drama is among the most powerful anti-war films ever made — with its anti-military stance so profound and radical for its time that the movie was banned in France for nearly 20 years and banned on U.S. military bases in Europe. Based on the novel by Humphrey Cobb, Paths of Glory tells the story of shell-shocked French World War I soldiers ordered on a suicide mission reluctantly led by Col. Dax (a fiery Kirk Douglas). When Dax refuses the corrupt Gen. Mireau’s (George Macready) orders for soldiers to fire on their own ranks to keep them driving forward during this impossible mission, the general scapegoats a group of the soldiers to protect his promotion, accusing them of cowardice in a kangaroo court. This haunting, exquisitely photographed dissection of the military machine in all its absurdity and capacity for dehumanization (a theme Kubrick would continue to explore throughout his career) is mesmerizing from its tense trench warfare sequences to its gripping courtroom climax to its ravaging final scene.
