Turner Classic Movies will honor the passing of James Coburn with a trio of the late Oscar-winning actor's films Sunday.

On Nov. 24, TCM will air The Great Escape at 4:30 p.m., followed by The Magnificent Seven at 7:30 p.m. and Charade at 10 p.m.

Coburn, known for playing tough guys, won a 1998 best supporting Oscar for his role as an anguished abusive in Paul Schrader's Affliction. He recently completed his 135th film, American Gun.

Coburn died of a heart attack Monday at age 74.
