And I want to thank everyone who continues to read the original "Sue Sue" thread. It has been so much fun to write about the details of many of the exciting events at the last four TCMFF's.

Here's a link to my latest article on *The Examiner* concerning another actress not honored by the 'In Memoriam' sequence at The Academy Awards: http://www.examiner....ad-oscar-s-snub

Why they don't engage TCM's professional staff of producers and researchers to prepare the popular 'In Memoriam' sequence is a fact that eludes me, and many others.

I appreciate all the lovely comments and discussions I've been able to enjoy while writing the articles on "Sue Sue!"

Many heartfelt thanks! Read "Sue Sue II" for festival news and updates during the 2014 Festival.

Last night: if you were at Young Frankenstein last night and didn't laugh, you just weren't awake! The print was lovely, and there is nothing else like seeing in on the big screen and laughing at the same time as hundreds of other people who enjoy the same kind of film. I was lucky enough to be seated with Mr. and Mrs. Cutter. Too much fun!
































































































Seeing Cry Danger earlier with two dear friends--Rhonda Fleming was introduced by Eddie Muller. She looked divine in a dark green sequined jacket with green pants. She had many comments about Dick Powell and how Cry Danger, filmed in LA in its prime, was always difficult for her to watch because of her father's death which occurred while she was filming, and her own serious bout with appendicitis.
































































































Auntie Mame was an exceptional moment for me. I have never seen this film onscreen and the colors were so vivid. It was a joy to view it with so many other fans.
































































































Deborah Nadoolman Landis had a lovely presentation in Club TCM followed by her book signing, and discussed a little of her upcoming project at the Victoria and Albert Museum in London. She received her PhD in in the History of Design at the Royal College of Art in London. Lots of audience interest and many questions. A very gracious, stylish lady!
































































































More later!
































































































Don't forget to have fun!

Thanks, Bronxie! We wish you were here with us! There are passholders here from 49 states and 7 countries.



(Nova Scotia and Scotland for sure!) Independent filmnaker John Melville is here from Scotland.

































































































































































































































































































Wonderful post, Lynn, as always!
































































































































































































































































































It has been so much fun to meet and greet with wonderful TCM pals!
































































































I have met the following folks in the last day or so from the Messageboards: kingrat, Kyle, Cinemaven, cinecrazydc, David from Seattle, countessdelave (who looked divine on the red carpet runway, I might add), Hadda from Canada, Emberly, and many of the wonderful facebook crew!
































































































Posted Image
































































































I ran into A.C. Lyles at Graumann's and had a nice chat with him, and he proceeded to explain how Wings changed his life. He will be introducing that film at 9:00 in the morning at the Chinese Multiplex.
































































































I also was able to tell Darcy Hettrich, Vice President of Talent at TCM, how much we all appreciated her diligence in helping to arrange for the thoroughly enjoyable Doris Day voiceover for the video retrospective for Doris Day's Star of the Month. And thank you, Doris Day! That week of her films, and the insightful comments from Robert Osborne were lovely.
































































































Had a wonderful photo op with Ben Mankiewicz, and was able to meet the star of Gun Crazy, Peggy Cummins. She is such a lovely lady, and appreciates that fans still enjoy her movies.
































































































Bob Mackie and Deborah Nadoolman Landis introduced Cleopatra with Claudette Colbert and discussed those fab Travis Banton fashions. It seems Claudette would have nothing to do with the De Mille designers, and demanded that Banton be allowed to create all her costumes. And both presenters lamented the fact that there is no biography of Travis Banton.

































































































Other tidbits:
















































Saw wonderful Marge Champion looking lovely, and she said she remembered me from our visit last year. Thank you, Ms. Champion.

































































































Several passholders expressed their disapointment at the cancellation of Shirley Jones to introduce Elmer Gantry.
































































































Met a sweet lady from San Diego named Jessica who explained how she has a special nook in her home devoted to Audrey Hepburn and how she has designed and created several needlepoints devoted to the international fashion icon.
































































































The Shannon Klute and Richard Edwards presentation this afternoon was enlightening and entertaining, and I now have a signed copy of The Maltese Touch of Evil. They discussed the popularity of their podcasts and how popular they have become, and their favorite films noir.
































































































Fashions worn by Bette Davis, Marlene Dietrich, Lana Turner, Julie Andrews, Greta Garbo and Linda Darnell are displayed in glass cases in the lobby of Grauman's Chinese Theater.

































































































And back at Club TCM, the Givenchy dress sported by Audrey Hepburn in the party scene in Sabrina is still very popular with passholders.

























Stargazers at the Vanity Fair party were able to schmooze with Liza Minelli, Larry Hagman, Mickey Rooney, and many others!
























































































































More later!

Good morning to all!

A hearty band of TCM City dwellers met up in the lobby of the famed Roosevelt Hotel yesterday afternoon. KyleinHollywood, Countessdelave (and her friend Cheryl), our intrepid reporter Suex2, Hadda, Emberly and a hand full of others.

Robert O and his crew (Sean, MA, Tom, etc) were shooting in the lobby and as we were talking with MorlockJeff, Tom gave us a shout out and asked everyone in the lobby to move in closer for the taping.

Robert O interviewed RJ Wagner, Genevieve MacGillicuddy (the Festival Director) and a writer for Vanity Fair who is covering the Architecture in Film theme.

We had a swell time talking with people we hadn't seen since last year's Film Festival and getting all caught up.

Out on the Boulevard, Disney was setting up for *The Avengers* premiere so they had giant tenting up for the Red Carpet arrivals. Luckily, the rain stayed away so that Scarlett Johannsen and other cast members were able to arrive at the El Capitan in style.

Last night when we returned from dinner at Mel's Drive-In, we sat in the lobby for a few minutes just hanging out. Guess who was sitting nearby and hanging out? If you guessed Peggy Cummings ( *Gun Crazy* ) and Eunice Gayson ( *Dr No* ), you'd be a winner!

Tonight the Red Carpet will again be out, this time in front of Grauman's for the big opening Gala that kick's off the TCM Festival.

We know a few of your swanky friends have been planning for this evening for quite some time and you will probably see them all decked out to the nines!

But before we get to the Red Carpet, this afternoon there are two panels, *Meet the Staff* and *The Maltese Touch of Evil* with TCM's own Shannon Clute and his co-author Richard Edwards.

The TCM Meet and Greet party begins at 5:00!

See ya at the Roosevelt where you can see and be seen!
"Movies touch our hearts and awaken our vision, and change the way we see things. They take us to other places, they open doors and minds. Movies are the memories of our life times, we need to keep them alive,"- Marty Scorsese
