by Sarah Shotwell

Jean Arthur_blogSpunky, patriotic, fun, and mysterious, Jean Arthur is TCM’s star of the day today! In Mr. Smith goes to Washington, she is the wry, wise sidekick who is more than your typical 1940s secretary: in the film, she becomes Smith’s (Jimmy Stewart’s) mentor, guiding him through the hairy-scary waters of D.C. corruption, challenging him to be better, and pushing him to be the [...]

by Paullette Gaudet

Celebrate Pinot Noir_BlogPinot Noir is a delight every day of the year, but August 18th has officially been designated National Pinot Noir Day here in the United States.

Friendship Day_blogFriendship forms the quiet architecture of our lives, yet is often pushed far below family and romantic partners in the hierarchy of social importance. Unfair? Hallmark sure thought so, back in 1919 when it founded National Friendship Day.
