This template is used to generate an external link to a web page at the TCM Movie Database (TCMDb). Turner Classic Movies (TCM) maintains its own comprehensive database of motion picture titles that are not limited to the film libraries that TCM owns, and includes links by which a user can suggest to TCM that they schedule any given title for viewing.

This template is designed for links to film titles; to a link to a person use {{TCMDb name}} instead.
