The iPlayer adds 23 RKO classics

In a rather nice move for those of us in need of a movie fix, the BBC has just added no fewer than 23 RKO classic movies to the iPlayer. In no particular order other than alphabetical, they are:

Here’s the full list:

  • Angel Face
  • Beautiful But Dangerous
  • Blackbeard, The Pirate
  • Bringing Up Baby
  • Carefree
  • Citizen Kane
  • Fort Apache (1948)
  • King Kong (1933)
  • Kitty Foyle
  • Love Affair (1939)
  • Magnificent Ambersons
  • Mr Blandings Builds His Dreamhouse
  • My Favourite Wife
  • She Wore a Yellow Ribbon
  • Suspicion
  • The Gay Divorcee
  • The Miracle of the Bells
  • The Sky’s the Limit
  • The Spanish Main
  • The Velvet Touch
  • Top Hat
  • Vivacious Lady
  • Wagon Master

Some obvious classic must-sees in there – Citizen Kane, Bringing Up Baby, King Kong, Fort Apache, Magnificent Ambersons, Top Hat – but there’s plenty in there I haven’t seen, so am happily assuming are equally great.
