Spencer Tracy and Katharine Hepburn Woman of the Year

Woman of the Year (1942)
Tuesday, April 11, 1:45am/12:45c, TCM
This romantic comedy is the first of Katharine Hepburn and Spencer Tracy’s nine legendary movie pairings, and one of the great gems from the Golden Age of Hollywood.

Uncle Buck (1989)
Thursday, April 6, Midnight /11c, Freeform
The Canadian sketch comedy SCTV gifted us with the late, great John Candy. Here he plays reluctant chaperone to nieces and a nephew in a John Hughes–directed, Chicago-set crowd-pleaser.

Die Hard (1988)
Saturday, April 8, 12:30am/11:30c, TNT
Yes, John McClane and Hans Gruber are the best cop-villain pairing ever. And yes, Die Hard is one of the best action movies ever made. Yippie-ki-yay!

Pirate Radio (2009)
Sunday April 16, 1am/midnight c, Universal HD
It’s 1966 and London is swinging—except for the BBC. The Brits’ official radio still played jazz when both the mods and the rockers wanted to hear The Who and The Stones. Philip Seymour Hoffman plays an American DJ who joins a boat-based pirate radio station anchored in the North Sea.

Back to the Future III (1990)
Sunday, April 16, 2:30am/1:30c, TBS
Michael J. Fox’s time-travel trilogy got better with each film. In the third movie, Marty tracks down Doc Brown (Christopher Lloyd) in the old-timey West of cowboys, horses and flying steam trains.
