TCM Schedule for Wednesday, May 29: Classic Disaster Films

In the daytime there's a TCM birthday tribute to Bob Hope.

Born today as well: Annette Bening, Helmut Berger, Danny Elfman, Rupert Everett, Beatrice Lillie, Josef von Sternberg, and various others from the film world.

And that Cagney interview early on Thursday morning has piqued my curiosity. Look at the date -- 1931!
