Head Over Heels (KABC Monday at midnight), Joan Micklin Silver's intimate 1979 film of Ann Beattie's novel "Chiullyu Scenes of Winter," suggests that even in an era of fleeting encounters a man (John Heard) can be so enraptured by a woman (Mary Beth Hurt) that he will wait for her a decade or so.

Barbarosa (KTLA Tuesday at 2:30 a.m.) is Fred Schepisi's glorious, mostly lighthearted 1982 adventure celebrating the mythical freedom and excitement of the outlaw life in the Old West. Gary Busey, Willie Nelson and Gilbert Roland star.

Hello, Sister! (KDOC Saturday at 2:30 p.m.) Originally title "Walking Down Broadway," this 1933 film is the last directed by Erich Von Stroheim. it's a typical boy-meets-girl story set in Manhattan but some characteristically perverse Stroheim touches survive.

Splendor in the Grass (A&E Saturday at 9 p.m.) Elia Kazan's memorable 1961 film of William Inge's tale of an ill-fated romance, set in the Midwest of the '20s. Natalie Wood, Warren Beatty star.
