Mark of the Vampire (TNT Thursday at 7 a.m.). Tod Browning's 1935 remake of his now-lost 1927 silent "London After Dark," which starred Lon Chaney, is campy, eerie fun, a murder mystery that just happens to be set in Transylvania. A hammy Lionel Barrymore has the Chaney role as a hypnotist-sleuth.

Night Train to Munich (Channel 56 Friday at 10 a.m.). Timeless, pure entertainment directed by Carol Reed, this 1940 adventure stars Rex Harrison as a fearless, self-mocking British secret agent, disguised as a Nazi major, determined to get a Czech scientist (James Harcourt) and his pretty daughter (Margaret Lockwood) out of Berlin on the eve of World War II.

The Sleeping Car Murder (A&E Saturday at 1 a.m.). Terrific 1965 mystery adventure directed by Costa-Gavras and starring Simone Signoret and Yves Montand.
