A personal favorite, Turner Classic Movies runs an interesting selection of 13 Ronald Colman classics ranging from silent work in The White Sister (1923) and Kiki (1926) all the way up to the bizarre The Story of Mankind (1957), released less than a year prior to Colman’s death and featuring him as “The Spirit of Man.”
Never fear, many of Colman’s more popular movies are tucked throughout the schedule as well including Lucky Partners (1940) with Ginger Rogers; Random Harvest (1942) with Greer Garson, Frank Capra’s Lost Horizon (1937), and my own favorite, his turn as Sydney Carton in A Tale of Two Cities (1935) during the prime 8:00 pm time slot.

This Glorias del Cine card from Spain is a paper stock issue that came with chocolates. A bit larger than the standard card. Since TCM decided to air some Ronald Colman silent films I went early too. This was issued circa 1924:
- As I mentioned A Tale of Two Cities is a favorite and I’m pretty proud of my coverage of it over on Immortal Ephemera: Ronald Colman stars in A Tale of Two Cities (1935)
- It’s moirafinnie at TCM’s Movie Morlocks once more with The Duality of Ronald Colman
- Almost in the top 10: Classicfilmboy posts My Favorite 30’s Actors: #11 is Ronald Colman. Hey it was a strong decade!
