I would expect so, the source was The Show-Off and it was remade (again) for Spencer Tracy. They just hacked the Paramount logo off and put on an MGM logo. Pretty much the only old '29-'30 Paramounts besides Marx Bros. films we're ever going to see on TCM is this way, it's also how TCM had One Sunday Afternoon, from a Warner remake. Universal doesn't seem to have much interest in showing old Paramounts or selling them.
