Here are all the movies on TV today

Plenty to sink your teeth into.

It's Sunday. Some refer to it as "Sunday Funday". But not me. Sundays are serious business, especially when there's this many movies on TV.

Paint Your Wagon - 1.10pm, BBC2

A musical western starring Clint Eastwood at the beginning of his ascent into superstardom. Roger Ebert said the movie "doesn't inspire a review. It doesn't even inspire a put-down. It just lies there in my mind -- a big, heavy lump."
