12:00 amSuze Orman's Financial Solutions for You We all have financial issues and problems. Suze Orman's latest special sharply focuses on her helping individual viewers "find financial solutions for you." As always, Suze's advice is based not just on numbers, but on a critical understanding of ourselves and our emotional needs. The special's central theme is that our financial decision-making should be guided by an understanding of "the goal of money." As Suze perceptively defines it: "The goal of money is to make you feel secure." Our financial solutions should work to fulfill that goal. In addition, Suze stresses the importance of making financial decisions that you feel comfortable with. Financial problems are caused when you do things with money that do not seem "right" to you, despite pressures and advice from others. duration 1:57:06 STEREO TVG
2:00 amFred MacMurray: The Guy Next Door [#403] Amiable and unassuming, Fred MacMurray went from small town boy to one of Hollywood's most enduring stars. MacMurray signed his first contract with Paramount Studios in 1934, and quickly rose to play romantic lead roles opposite such major stars as Claudette Colbert, Carole Lombard, Katharine Hepburn, Paulette Goddard and Marlene Dietrich. However, his true talents were revealed when he went against type and appeared as a murderer opposite Barbara Stanwyck in Billy Wilder's film-noir classic Double Indemnity (1944). Other roles, including the cowardly naval lieutenant in The Caine Mutiny (1954) and the cynical executive in The Apartment (1960), helped define MacMurray as a major acting talent. A series of Disney films in which he portrayed a good-natured father figure included The Shaggy Dog (1959), The Absent-Minded Professor (1961) and Son of Flubber (1963).
Renowned for his true-life stability and contented role as father to four adopted children, in his later years MacMurray's flagging career was revived when he became television's best-loved father in the long-running series, My Three Sons (1960-1971). The program includes clips from some of MacMurray's most notable films, such as The Gilded Lily, Double Indemnity, The Caine Mutiny, The Apartment, The Absent Minded Professor, Swing High, Swing Low and the TV series My Three Sons. The program also includes interviews with Fred MacMurray's wife, June Haver MacMurray, and daughters, Kate MacMurray and Laurie MacMurray, actors Nancy Olson, Beverly Garland and Jack Lemmon, and directors Billy Wilder and Edward Dmytryk. duration 50:13 STEREO TVG
2:52 amExtraordinary Women [#109H] Audrey Hepburn Audrey Hepburn was one of the most stylish women the world has ever seen, and she took Hollywood by storm.

Her natural, effortless beauty charmed millions. Audrey was more than just a movie star - she was a fashion icon the world over. But behind the glamour was a life marked by tragedy and loss. When Audrey was just 6 years old her father walked out on the family. His abandonment haunted her for the rest of her life. She endured the horrors of the Nazi-occupation in wartime Holland, and aged just 12 years old, Audrey witnessed the deportations of Jewish families to the death camps. duration 51:16 STEREO TVPG
3:45 amBurt Lancaster: Daring to Reach [#406] Burt Lancaster went from streetwise tough to art-collector liberal-activist, from circus-acrobat hunk to Academy Award winner. By age 18, Burt was 6'2" and blessed with the athletic physique and dynamic good looks that helped make him famous. A stint in the Army introduced Burt to acting and led him to Hollywood where his first release, The Killers (1946), propelled him to stardom at age 32. He took control of his own career and seldom faltered. Upon his death in 1994, four-time Academy Award-nominated Lancaster was acknowledged as one of the greatest stars in Hollywood.
Lancaster's films include Westerns, costume epics and serious contemporary dramas. He starred in swashbucklers like The Crimson Pirate (1952), and in more risky roles, like the aging alcoholic in Come Back Little Sheba (1952) . Other acting triumphs were The Rose Tattoo (1955), The Birdman of Alcatraz (1962), From Here to Eternity (1953), The Rainmaker (1956), The Sweet Smell of Success (1957), Elmer Gantry (1960) - which earned him an Academy Award - and Atlantic City (1980).
