Tramp Strategy (1911), a short comedy by trailblazing French filmmaker Alice Guy-Blaché
Special television broadcasts of performances by Mel Tormé, Lou Rawls and other musical artists
River of Grass (1994), filmmaker Kelly Reichardt's semi-autobiographical feature debut
Open Secret (1948), a noir thriller concerning anti-Semitism in postwar America
The Lost Moment (1947), an atmospheric gothic film featuring Robert Cummings and Agnes Moorehead
She-Devil Island (1936), a romantic Mexican drama released in the U.S. as an exploitation picture
The Mad Game (1933), starring Spencer Tracy as a gangster involved in a kidnapping scheme
A 1960 edition of Play of the Week with acclaimed stage and screen couple Ossie Davis and Ruby Dee
