Hey tag-teamers, just thought I'd let you know that Barbara Stanwyck was *not* seen at the Double Indemnity house this a.m. And, she was definitely *not* wearing an ankle bracelet OR Fred MacMurray, for that matter.

Inside scoop from that ace reporter, SueSue Applegate- our intrepid gal about town reports from the Hotel Roosevelt that Tina Sinatra will be joining Ben M poolside tomorrow evening to introduce *High Society*.

See you by the pool!

We also hear that our Suex2 was able to meet that TCM Message board heart-throb Ben M!

The Hotel Roosevelt where you go to see and be seen!

Toodles!

After Elvis went back to his post in front of Grauman's Chinese close to the footprint court, I stopped by the pool party, a cocktail reception for the documentary for Waiting For Lightening , a film 7 years in the making, and met Oscar-nominated sound mixer Deb Adair, and her husband Al, an LAPD officer who has collaborated with Joseph Wambaugh, and learned all about the making of the film. More about all their interesting history later.



I think Rob Dyrdek was there from Ridiculousness.



Waiting For Lightening is about a skateboarding enthusiast who actually jumps the Great Wall of China, and premiered at the Cinerama Dome. Sounds so fascinating!



Passholders: Today at 1:00 Robert Osborne will be filming interview in the lobby. Here is the schedule of events from the email:



*Shoot schedule (subject to change):*

*Wednesday, April 11, 1:00pm-3:00pm*
Robert Osborne and guests in the lobby of the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel
(2:15pm-2:45pm with Tippi Hedren)

*Thursday April 12, 1:00pm-3pm*
Robert Osborne and guests in the lobby of the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel
Ben Mankiewicz and guests poolside at the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel

*Friday, April 13, 12:30pm-2:00pm*
Ben Mankiewicz and guests in the lobby of the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel

*Saturday, April 14, 1:00pm-4:00pm*
Robert Osborne/Ben Mankiewicz and guests in the lobby of the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel
(3:00pm-3:30pm with Debbie Reynolds)



Don't forget to have fun!

Just arrived this afternoon, and The Hollywood Roosevelt is all abuzz....passholders are arriving from all over the country, Canada, and Great Britain. Met a cute Australian in the elevator, but he's not here for the festival...



The weather is delightful, and it's brisk and cool here at night. The lovely Givenchy dress that Audrey Hepburn wore in Sabrina is safely encased in a lovely display in Club TCM, which is definitely decorated and arranged differently from last year.



TCM sent an email to passholders about some special events in the lobby. so check it out if you haven't seen it already.



FYI, I just saw Elvis at CVS. He was buying some bottled water.

More later...

If you are "in" to architecture, be sure to see Eric Lloyd Wright and Matt Tyrnauer introduce *The Fountainhead* at 3:15 in the Chinese Multiplex 4 on Friday, April 13.
h4. Eric Lloyd Wright
Eric Lloyd Wright, was born on November 8, 1929, in Los Angeles, California. Eric then worked as an apprentice with his grandfather, Frank Lloyd Wright, at the Taliesin Fellowship from 1948 until 1956. Eric left the Fellowship to join his father, Lloyd Wright, at his architectural practice in Los Angeles. After Lloyd Wright's death in 1979, Eric formed his own architectural practice. He now lives and practices architecture in Malibu, California, with current projects ranging from small scale infill and custom residential in the Malibu, Santa Monica and Hollywood areas to affordable housing, mixed use and resort design in the greater Los Angeles area and abroad.

Through his years of experience with Frank Lloyd Wright and Lloyd Wright, Eric developed the design understanding that it is the space within a building, not its physical walls and roof that forms the building's character -- its soul -- and determines its function. Careful thought is given to the physical, social and spiritual environment in which the project is to be built, with a concern for appropriate materials, quality, craft, and detail. Towards this end, Eric believes that one of the most important factors is the relationship between the client, the site and Architect. It is the client and site, together with the Architect, that shape the design of a project.

h4. Matt Tyrnauer
Matt Tyrnauer was born in Los Angeles and studied film at Wesleyan University in Middletown, Connecticut. His documentary feature film, Valentino: The Last Emperor (2008) has been called "Flawless" by Richard Corliss in Time, and a "must-see" by The New York Times. Valentino premiered at the 2008 Venice Film Festival, and won the top documentary prize at the Chicago Film Festival. It was one of the highest grossing documentaries at the box office in 2009 and was short-listed for an Academy Award for best documentary feature. It is currently available on DVD (www.valentinomovie.com) in the U.S and is being released in theaters and on TV around the world.

Tyrnauer's writing career began at Spy magazine. Graydon Carter, the co-founder of Spy, then hired Tyrnauer to write for him when Carter was editor of the New York Observer. Tyrnauer has written many feature articles as Editor-at-Large and Special Correspondent at Vanity Fair. His Vanity Fair articles include pieces on Martha Stewart (the August 2005 post-prison cover story, and a 2001 profile), Valentino Garavani, Marlene Dietrich, Siegfried and Roy, Philippe Starck, Frank Gehry, green design pioneer William McDonough, writer Bret Easton Ellis, producer Robert Evans, and the architect John Woolf.

Tyrnauer attended Crossroads School in Los Angeles, where the academic program was among the first in the nation to include serious film studies at the secondary school level. At Wesleyan University he apprenticed under the film professor, Joseph W. Reed, a pioneer in American film scholarship. Tyrnauer aided Reed in his research on American masters John Ford, Howard Hawks, Michael Curtiz and Robert Aldrich. Tyrnauer's honors thesis was an in depth analysis of the films of Robert Aldrich.

h4. Richard L. Edwards
Richard L. Edwards holds a PhD in Critical Studies from USC's School of Cinematic Arts. He has taught courses on classic Hollywood films and film noir at Loyola Marymount University, Saint Mary's College of California, and Indiana University.

He is the author of several articles and book chapters on film and media. With Shannon Clute, he is the co-author of The Maltese Touch of Evil: Film Noir and Potential Criticism (Dartmouth College Press, 2011) and the co-host of three podcast series, including Out of the Past: Investigating Film Noir.

Hey fashionable Festival-goers,

Be sure to bring an umbrella with you this year. Right now showers are predicted for next Wednesday, Thursday and Friday.

It really does rain (and drizzle) in the City of Angels, especially this time of the year!

Sweet Jack Favell posted a lovely link in response to BingFan's thread in General Discussions, and I just HAD to share.

I saw JackaaaAaay's link and watched. (Hi Jackie!) Thank you Jaxxon!!!

...But for some reason, all I've been doing lately is thinking about Capucine. Maybe because TCM FEST 2012 is supposed to be STYLISH for several reasons.

Thanxx so much SueSue for your post below on CAPUCINE. You've struck a big chord with me mentioning one of my favorite faves. I'm crazy about her. She was quite stylish...and so ultra-Sophisticated. She has one of the most arresting looks I've ever seen in movies; not quite that apple-pie-pretty, California-Barbie-look of Bardot, or the sweetly sexy look of Romy Schneider...nor the porcelain icy beauty of Deneuve. I think Capucine had more the "I-Am-A-Woman, Can-You-Handle-THAT!" look that challenged men. (Moreau has that look as well).

I'm a big fan even though I've only seen "The Pink Panther" "North to Alaska" and my favorite: "Walk On The Wild Side." I can't wait to hear RJ do his intro for the panther movie. And I expect to have a drink with you soon.

I'm so happy you created such a lovely spotlight for her. I wish the dear woman had been happier.

The special guests link under the programs drop-down menu has been tweaked.

Here's an update on all special guests in case you might not have seen the entire list yet:
http://www.tcm.com/f...cialguests.html

If you click on the little blue name of the special guest you want to "know more about,"
it gives you a short bio and a photo!

Just like this:

h4. Shannon Clute
Shannon Clute is the co-author of The Maltese Touch of Evil: Film Noir and Potential Criticism (Dartmouth College Press, 2011) and the co-creator of three popular podcast series: Out of the Past: Investigating Film Noir, a film history and analysis program; Behind the Black Mask: Mystery Writers Revealed, an author interview show; and Yaddocast, the official podcast of the prestigious artists' retreat Yaddo--all with Richard Edwards. Out of the Past was recently selected by the Australian Broadcasting Corporation for national radio transmission as part of their Top of The Pods series, and Yaddocast received mention in O, The Oprah Magazine.

A former professor, Clute has been invited to speak on film noir at such institutions as the George Eastman House and WXXI public radio. He is also a scholar and writer of hard-boiled fiction, and his first novel was one of ten semi-finalists in the inaugural Court TV "Search for the Next Great Crime Writer" contest. He works as a brand manager for Turner Classic Movies in Atlanta.

h4. OR IF YOU CLICK ON "Debbie Reynolds" YOU GET TO READ ALL ABOUT DEBBIE!
Debbie Reynolds

Entertainer Debbie Reynolds has been a popular presence in films, on television and on stage for more than six decades. She was born Mary Frances Reynolds in El Paso, Texas, on April 1, 1932, and grew up in Burbank, California, where she performed with the town symphony and was active in school plays. When she was 16, Reynolds was crowned Miss Burbank and subsequently garnered the attention of MGM and Warner Bros. In 1950, she made an instant impression in small roles in her first two films for MGM, Three Little Words (1950) and Two Weeks with Love (1950). The latter included a high-speed rendition of the novelty song "Aba Daba Honeymoon," which hit No. 3 on the Billboard charts. The studio and directors Gene Kelly and Stanley Donen responded by giving her star billing opposite Kelly and Donald O'Connor in the musical SINGIN IN THE RAIN (1952).

During her tenure at MGM, Reynolds performed primarily in musicals, including Give a Girl a Break (1953), Athena (1954) and Hit the Deck (1955). She also scored in romantic comedies like Susan Slept Here (1954) at RKO and The Tender Trap (1955). She also turned in a fine dramatic performance in A Catered Affair (1956). After the end of her contract, Reynolds turned to freelancing, enjoying a big hit with Tammy and the Bachelor (1957), which also gave her a second smash hit single. Numerous successes followed, including The Mating Game (1959), This Happy Feeling (1958), HOW THE WEST WAS WON (1962), The Unsinkable Molly Brown (1964), which earned her a Best Actress Oscar nomination, Divorce American Style (1967), and How Sweet It Is! (1968).

Turning her attention to the stage, Reynolds enjoyed a triumph on Broadway with a revival of the musical chestnut Irene in 1973 and played the London Palladium in a 1975 revue. Live performing kept her busy for the next 20 years, though she occasionally surfaced as a guest star on such television series as Alice and Will & Grace.

Reynolds returned to the big screen in the 1990s, with performances in Oliver Stone's Heaven and Earth (1993), Albert Brooks' Mother (1996) and Frank Oz's In & Out (1997). She has also provided voice work for such television productions as The Rug Rats and Kimpossible.

{font:Times New Roman}I concur with Darryl. The photo of your folks strolling by the bijoux in Houston renders your cinematic pedigree both indisputable and undeniable. I can’t figure out who you favor more -- C.C. or Dorothy. You’d win either way! The picture is certainly classic and could easily fit alongside that iconic scene in Times Square on V-J Day with the sailor kissing his girl. Thanks for sharing !{font}

SueSue,


I love the photo of your folks! They should have been "in" the movies! What a handsome couple they make. And, with the timeframe you've been able to pinpoint from the marquee, the world was on the brink of war and their new marriage would soon be interrupted. It would have been great if your Dad had seen Marlene perform for the boys over there. She was so patriotic and proud of America. I am glad your parents passed their love of the movies on to little SueSue. They raised you right!


If the shoe fits, buy two pairs.

( Marlene Dietrich, in a photo-op from *Kismet*, whose costumes weren't designed by
Travis Banton, but the talented Irene)
































































































































































































But in retrospect, one of the most iconic pairings in Hollywood must have been Marlene Dietrich and Travis Banton as far as couturier conspiracies are concerned.

During one legendary moment of insipration, Marlene retooled a previous Lombard lame' gown as Banton panicked because the Head Office demanded test stills for *The Devil is a Woman*, directed by Josef Von Sternberg.

Using one of her shawls normally draped over her piano and commandeering some "cheap veiling" encountered in the fitting rooms to form some loose fitting gloves, Banton told Dietrich that she couldn't wear her creation just to appease the boys in the front office."It is ghastly!" he claimed. Banton looked ill, and the horrified wardrobe girls stared.
































































































































































































But Dietrich did it anyway, and usually the way she wanted it done. Somehow the film wiggled its way through the censors, the front office, the Spanish government, and the depths of the legendary costumer's lair at Paramount, who destroyed the original print after its initial run, and *The Devil is a Woman* remained out of circulation until 1959 where it was tucked away in a vault, protected by Dietrich herself, because she claimed it was her favorite film in Maxilmilian Schell's documentary, Marlene.

She "shoulda been a directuh." But her personal life was so.....busy.

And no matter her personal opinions, peccadillos and tangled social calendar, she was an American and did what she could to help us win World War II by her appearances in several dangerous areas performing with the USO, and at one time was aligned with Patton's Third Army, where my father was stationed as a tank battalion commander, but Dad was never able to see one of her shows.

My parents, C.C. and Dorothy, walking down Main Street in Houston,Texas. Since *Hold Back the Dawn*, with Olivia de Havilland and Charles Boyer was released on 9-26-1941, and ***** Tonk* with Clark Gable and Lana Turner was released on October 1, 1941, the folks were strolling along about six months after their marriage.
































































































































































































They loved going to the movies, and they made sure that I did, too!
