There's going to be a rumble tonight Westside Story. The Jewish writers of Westside Story planned for it to be a retelling of Romeo & Juliet, with Catholics vs. a Jewish street gang, until they realized Shakespeare himself had rewritten an older such story of a Catholic marrying a Jew, so changed it to a Hispanic (Puerto Rican) vs. white street gang

TCM was launched 4/14/94 as a 24-hour commercial-free classic movie channel, originally for movies 1930-1960, with the occasional silent movies, and newer movies added over time. It was Ted Turner's answer to American Movie Classics, using the vast film libraries Turner bought from MGM, RKO, Warner Brothers and other studio vaults. Ted Turner launched TBS as his first cable channel by sending the signal of his WTBS Atlanta TV-station to satellite 12/17/76, followed by TNT in 1988. TBS and TNT show mostly TV reruns and sports, with 24-hour news on his CNN starting in 1980.
