[Press Release – Released by Turner Classic Movies]

Emmy®-winning comedian and commentator Dennis Miller is bringing his sardonic wit to Turner Classic Movies (TCM) Wednesday, Oct. 21, when he presents a collection of favorite films in the latest edition of the network’s GUEST PROGRAMMER series. Each month on this movie showcase, TCM invites a celebrity to exchange star status for a role as a devoted fan of classic film by picking a few favorite movies and sharing with viewers what he or she has come to love about each one. In addition to Miller, upcoming GUEST PROGRAMMERS include actor/comedian Richard Lewis (Sept. 21), Oscar®-winning actor Sir Anthony Hopkins(Nov. 30) and alternative singer/songwriter Neko Case (Dec. 8).

Miller will join TCM host Robert Osborne to present four memorable films during his stint in the TCM programmer’s chair:
8 p.m. William Wyler’s Dodsworth (1936), with Walter Huston reprising his Broadway performance in a remarkably intelligent adaptation of Sinclair Lewis’ novel.
10 p.m. Carol Reed’s The Third Man (1949), starring Joseph Cotten and Orson Welles in a gripping post-WWII suspense thriller about a missing man.
Midnight Alfred Hitchcock’s Suspicion (1941), starring Joan Fontaine as a young bride convinced her husband, played by Cary Grant, is trying to murder her.
2 a.m. Mr. Blandings Builds His Dream House (1948 – 2 a.m.), a delightful domestic comedy with Cary Grant and Myrna Loy as a city couple trying to build a house in the country.
