Highlights for each day of the week

Monday, Feb. 16Lover Come Back (1961)In this clever sendup of Madison Avenue, an ad exec must scramble to come up with a product when his phony commercials for a nonexistent one accidentally air. One of the better Rock Hudson–Doris Day vehicles. 11 a.m., AMC TuesdayApocalypse Now Redux (2001)Francis Ford Coppola’s later cut of his 1979 Vietnam War epic Apocalypse Now added almost an hour of new material, including two extended sequences. 10 p.m., Cinemax WednesdayThe Life of Émile Zola (1937)Despite glossing over the anti-Semitism of the Dreyfus Affair, this is a credible biodrama about the French writer. Paul Muni was Oscar-nominated for the title role. 8 p.m., TCM

ThursdayThe Godfather, Part II (1974)The sequel, which recounts young Vito Corleone’s (Robert De Niro) founding of his crime empire and his son Michael’s (Al Pacino) consolidation of it, is even better than the original. 8 p.m., AMC FridayTaxi Driver (1976)Robert De Niro in one of his most memorable roles—as an alienated Vietnam veteran who succumbs to paranoia while driving a cab through the underbelly of nighttime New York City. 10 p.m., Flix

SaturdayFrom Here to Eternity (1953)Eight Oscars went to the film version of James Jones’ novel about a Hawaii Army base on the eve of World War II. With Burt Lancaster, Deborah Kerr, Montgomery Clift, and Frank Sinatra. 8 p.m., TCM

SundayAmarcord (1974)Federico Fellini’s colorful, bawdy portrait of his Italian hometown during Mussolini’s rule has the fond, dream-like feel of childhood memory. It won an Oscar for Best Foreign Film. 8 a.m., IFC
