Aha, so this is why Casablanca did not air during Bogie’s Summer Under the Stars day back on the 17th! Lots of Nazis on TCM Tuesday as they spend 24 hours of Summer Under the Stars with Conrad Veidt, best remembered as Major Strasser in Casablanca at 11:45 pm EST.
But wait, there’s more! The most interesting movies on the TCM schedule are probably the pair of German silent films highlighted by an 8 pm EST showing of The Hands of Orlac (1925), a story you might remember better when it was redone in 1935 as Mad Love, starring Peter Lorre. Late in the evening (or early Wednesday morning) TCM shows The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari (1919), which is pretty much mind candy.
Several lesser seen movies fill Tuesday’s 24 hours with Conrad Veidt, enjoy!
