Is October too soon for the next challenge? Like, write it in October, vote in mid November? Thought it might be good to have it all sewn up before the holiday season takes up all our time. :)


October works for me.

So many great schedules this challenge.  Every one did such a great job!

 

Cinema Int'l, I loved your pre-code women theme, your wonderful "we pick this time to fall in love" theme, SOTM Edna May Oliver and your salute to the art direction of Roland Anderson.

 

Stevo Machino, I loved your inclusion of "Charlie Brown" and "Grinch" in your schedule.  I also love the selection of Gloria Grahame for SOTM and the birthday tributes to Humphrey Bogart and Sydney Greenstreet.  I also love the tribute to Joan Blondell.

 

Lonesome Polecat, I actually originally had the same week selected that you did, as I was going to honor William Holden for his 100th birthday and make him my SOTM.  Then, I had the idea of creating the TCM spotlight about the 100th anniversary of the WWI armistice and decided to move my whole schedule to November to coincide with the anniversary.  Needless to say, I enjoyed your 100th birthday tribute to William Holden.  I also liked your selection of Donald O'Connor for SOTM and the themes centered around the housing shortage and great debuts.

 

Skimpole, I loved your ABC theme, complete with themes for each letter, it was very clever.  My favorite days were 'I' for innocence, 'M' for Minnelli musicals and 'S' for Sassy.  I also liked your theme about corruption and your SOTM choice, Juliette Binoche.  

 

Classic Aficionado, I enjoyed your schedule centered around the "Do me a favor" quote from Casablanca, I also liked the tribute to Delmer Davies and your SOTM, Dorothy Malone.  I also liked that The Legend of Lylah Clare was the Underground selection.

 

Finally, Classic Int'l, Skimpole and Classic Aficionado, I do love me a movie featuring a good love triangle and I'm happy to see that each of you created such great themes centered around this idea and featuring so many different films. 

 

Great job everyone! 

 

Lydecker, I have PM'd you my vote.

lydecker, I also am told you cannot receive any new messages when I try to send my vote by PM.

 

The same thing happened to me. 

:(


Rest in peace, Mr. Osborne.

What is going on here??  I have gotten several PMs but I have also hear there is a problem for some folks. 

I'll check with the Moderator and see what gives but in the meantime, I'll PM you to get your vote.

lydecker, I'm also not able to send my vote to you by PM.

When I try, I get an alert that you're not able to receive messages.
