Saturday, Oct 25 on TCM (ie: late Fri night - times E.S.T.) - TCM Underground show:

2:00am - The World's Greatest Sinner (1962, 82')

3:45am - 200 Motels (1971, 98')

http://www.tcm.com/schedule/index.jsp?s ... =EST&cid=N

NB: TCM's schedule lists these two films being screened on Fri, Oct 24, but their daily schedule runs from 6am-6am, and not from 12am-12am, so even though TCM lists them as Fri, OCT 24, they are actually being screened early Saturday morning (Oct 25). OK? Y'arrr!!!!

I don't think she has any say in the matter.

That's right folks, Gail doesn't. TWGS copyright is owned by Timothy Carey's production company Frenzy Films, AND, 200 Motels is owned by United Artists. So you see folks the ZFT, has no say in the matter. TCM would of paid the rental/TV-rights fee to those two companies. So, unless FZ got residuals from that TCM deal (possibly for 2M), that's all the ZPT got from this.

Plus, just maybe, sales of FZ flics'n'music might have increased as a result of this grand exposure. Y'arrr!!! THANK YOU TCM!!!! Kudo's!!! Lets have more of this.
