The Alamo is on the MGM movie channel right now. Came on at 7 edt, so an hour in already. It's on till 10, so has to be the 162 minute one.

Just a reminder that the long version will be on TCM this Thursday, Feb. 8th at 12:30am. Guess you could say, it's actually Friday the 9th, since it's after midnight. TCM calls it Thursday.

Seems to be quite a few disappointed viewers from last nights TCM showing of The Alamo. It was supposed to be the longer version, but they showed the theatrical version instead. Don't know if it was a mistake in scheduling or if TCM put the wrong version on by mistake. Better luck next time.

Indeed, TexianAtHeartII, I noticed quite a few disappointed TCM viewers on Facebook who'd stayed up for the Road Show version of THE ALAMO
only to get the short version, instead. Some were asking that, since the time allotted was for the 202 minute version, what did TCM do to fill in
for the extra 45 minutes they did not show? Did anybody here stay up anyway to answer this burning question ?

I didn't stay up, nor did I DVR it since I already did that last year...but someone posted on FB that after The Alamo there was a documentary in Gettysburg. That would account for the extra time allotted.

While I did not stay up, my faithful DVR did. It’s his job, old DVR, good boy, there’s extra heavy 50-weight oil in your grub tonight. Good laddie!

So I watched the end of the recording. Then I confirmed what I saw on the Turner Classic Movies (TCM) Web site. That extra time on top of the 161-minute theatrical release version of The Alamo was filled by two Oscar-nominated short subjects, the 30 minute “The Battle of Gettysburg” (1955) narrated by Leslie Neilsen (and don’t call him Shirley), with a 9 minute Pete Smith Speciality (in Technicolor) “Now You See It,” (1947) about highly-magnified motion pictures of nature.

Proof is in the pudding of this page, amongst the last entries for February 8:
http://www.tcm.com/schedule/monthly.htm ... thschedule

So—why were Oscar nominated short subjects shown instead of the one, true, 202-minute director’s cut of “The Alamo”? Because TCM is in the midst of its annual 31 Days of Oscar film festival. Every film shown during the 28 days of February (yeah, what’s with the 31? I don’t know) is either an Oscar winner or a nominee, 24/7, all of the day and all of the night, until March gets here. It does result in some extraordinarily fine movie viewing for at least 28 days, I have to say, whether it is exactly the fine viewing I wanted or not.
