: Needless to say, with the exclusion of a relative handful of classics, the air-time of most A-list features of yesteryear is limited....any thoughts as to why JB films seem to be in the particularly low exposure rotation?...

I don't know about "George Washington Slept Here", but over the years "The Horn Blows At Midnight" has been considered as something of a Holiday film.

Sure, it's not "hardcore" Holiday fare like "White Christmas", "A Christmas Carol" or "It's A Wonderful Life", but many people associate that whole "Midnight" thing with the holidays...especially New Year's Eve.

In fact, the very first time I watched "The Horn Blows At Midnight" was on New Year's Eve (actually New Year's DAY, because the film started after midnight...A local TV station (which I was getting on Cable) was showing it as a special "Late, Late Show"-type feature.
