The Magnificent Ambersons is on TCM tonight

The Magnificent Ambersons (1942) was directed by Orson Welles. It’s on TCM tonight at 10:00 ET. RKO made major changes to the film before it was released and tacked on a happy ending. It’s flawed but still a great film with some magnificent shots and a terrific performance by Agnes Moorehead.

The Criterion Collection recently released it on Blu-ray and DVD. I haven’t watched it yet but Criterion always does a great job.
