This is an extremely minor rant. I know it, but it pisses me off to no end, and I cannot figure out why they do it.
I'm scrolling through the on-screen guide to see whats coming up on TCM. Monday at 3:15pm I see we have 'I Walked With a Zombie', supposedly a 2004 release starring Frances Dee. That's all I see from the thumbnail.
I'm not enamored with early 2000's zombie movies and Frances Dee doesn't sound familiar. But this is TCM, so I decide to look closer.
Turns out its a 1943 pulp classic from director Jacques Tourneur, whose other works I enjoy.
Why would TCM call this a 2004 film?
suaviter in modo, fortiter in re
I just checked the TCM website and their description identifies it as 1943. I also checked my sat TV guide (Dish), and it also identifies as 1943. If your TV channel system says it is 2004, then it’s the public school-educated idiot they hired to update the listings who is responsible. Whenever there is “praise” for a particular movie, then you can be assured that the movie is a time-waster of a “turkey”.
