NEW YORK (CNS) — Here are some television program and film notes for the week of July 11 with their TV Parental Guidelines ratings if available. They have not been reviewed and therefore are not necessarily recommended by Catholic News Service.

Sunday, July 11, 2:45-5:45 p.m. EDT (TCM) "Far From the Madding Crowd" (1967). Excellent British screen version of Thomas Hardy's romantic melodrama of early Victorian country life with Julie Christie being pursued by Peter Finch, Terence Stamp and Alan Bates. Director John Schlesinger avoids the pitfalls of the formula blockbuster and comes up with a superbly realistic, atmospheric production filmed entirely on location in Hardy's Dorset. The Catholic News Service classification of the theatrical version was A-II — adults and adolescents. Not rated by the Motion Picture Association.

Monday, July 12, 7-10 p.m. EDT (AMC) "The Perfect Storm" (2000). When three fierce weather systems collide off the coast of Newfoundland in October 1991, a fishing trawler's six-man crew (including George Clooney and Mark Wahlberg) is caught in its grip as monster waves hamper Coast Guard and Air Force rescue efforts. Director Wolfgang Petersen adapts Sebastian Junger's fact-based best-seller as entertainment, emphasizing special-effects thrills over compelling characterizations, although the movie captures how precious each human life is in the face of the awesome power of nature. Discreet sexual innuendo, some profanity and an instance of rough language. The Catholic News Service classification of the theatrical version was A-III — adults. The Motion Picture Association rating was PG-13 — parents strongly cautioned. Some material may be inappropriate for children under 13.

Tuesday, July 13, 5:35-7:45 p.m. EDT (Showtime) "In the Line of Fire" (1993). While bragging about his imminent plans to assassinate the incumbent president, a methodical killer (John Malkovich) taunts an aging Secret Service agent (Clint Eastwood) on the phone about his failure to save President John F. Kennedy in Dallas and promises history will repeat itself. Director Wolfgang Petersen's cat-and-mouse thriller is far better on characterization than on action as Eastwood and Malkovich's exchanges are shrewdly revealing, but the climax is unconvincingly staged. Intermittent violence and some rough language. The Catholic News Service classification of the theatrical version was A-III — adults. The Motion Picture Association rating was R — restricted. Under 17 requires accompanying parent or adult guardian.

Tuesday, July 13, 10-11 p.m. EDT (PBS) "The Power of the Fed." This episode of the series "Frontline" examines how the Federal Reserve stepped in to try to avert an economic crisis as the COVID-19 pandemic spread.

Wednesday, July 14, 8-9 p.m. EDT (EWTN) "EWTN Live" On this edition of the weekly program, series host Jesuit Father Mitch Pacwa welcomes Catholic attorney and educator John DeJak (TV-G — general audience).

Friday, July 16, 10-11 p.m. EDT (PBS) "Roots of Latin Jazz." Sheila E. hosts this celebration of Latin music. Part of the series "Great Performances" (TV-G — general audience).

Saturday, July 17, noon-1:45 p.m. EDT (TCM) "Green for Danger" (1946). British murder mystery with a devious Scotland Yard inspector (Alastair Sim) ferreting out a killer among a small-town hospital staff (notably Leo Genn, Trevor Howard and Sally Gray), with Hitler's buzz bombs adding to the tension. Director Sidney Gilliat neatly paces the suspense with some well-timed humor, though the staff's romantic involvements are the stuff of soap opera. Minimal violence, some scary moments and romantic situations. The Catholic News Service classification of the theatrical version was A-II — adults and adolescents. Not rated by the Motion Picture Association.
