Since I'm already getting ideas for Challenge 36, I figured I'd find out when would be a good time for y'all. June sounds like a good pre-vacation month to me. Would June work for y'all? July seems to get too hairy but if all of you are going on vacation in June, let me know. :)

 

Excited that you already have some ideas for #36.  June sounds great to me.

My vote goes to Barton Keyes--the evening of Robert Benchley short films decided me.  All the schedules are excellent though.

 

The Robert Benchley salute (shorts and his film appearances)in Barton Keyes' schedule was truly inspired.

Congratulations, LonesomePolecat! 

:)

 

Loved your choices for the different challenges, especially your choice for "The Ghosts of TCM Past".  I hope that your schedule will inspire TCM to bring Cartoon Alley back!

It's getting harder and harder trying to pick the best -- they're all great!

 

Each has things I love. I hope TCM uses some of these themes.

 

When it's all said and done, I have to vote for LonesomePolecat. More things in it tickle my fancy that the others.

 

You're all to be congratulated on your great schedules. :)

Let's see Lonesome Polecat has a silent version of Around the World in Eighty Days and several filmed opera.  Barton Keyes has a spotlight devoted to Robert Altman, The Towering Inferno and Ghost Story.  Cinema International has Clue and an evening devoted to Jacques Demy.

 

I vote for Barton Keyes.
