This week on Turner Classic Movies:

One of my favorite Christmas movies of all time, THE BISHOP'S WIFE, will be on Monday the 7th at 2 p.m. It's a lovely fantasy appropriate for any season. Tuesday morning at 10 is CAPTAIN SINDBAD, a grand 60's fantasy adventure, as good if not better than Ray Harryhausen's JASON AND THE ARGONAUTS which will be on later that day. It's Rosalind Russell month on TCM and two of her best, HIS GIRL FRIDAY and THE WOMEN, have already aired, but this Tuesday night is CRAIG'S WIFE, a solid "woman's movie" melodrama which I'll be reviewing soon. Thursday night are two great all-time classics: THE AWFUL TRUTH, perhaps the best screwball comedy ever, at 10; and ALL ABOUT EVE, one of the best movies ever of any genre, at 11:45. Finally, a fun 60's camp movie called THE LOVE-INS is on TCM Underground Friday night/Saturday mornign at 3.45 a.m.
