Thanks to KTEP in El Paso, Texas, for this interview with Charlie Tabesh, Senior Vice President for Programming!
IMG_1762_zpsylceadpu.jpg
"The TCM cable channel has been a go to for classic movie lovers. While TCM allows movie lovers to enjoy the classics in the comfort of their own homes, TCM also recognizes the importance of the communal experience in watching a film with fellow film enthusiasts. It is for that reason that TCM hosts the TCM Classic Film Festival and remains one of the important film festivals for the classics. Charlie Tabish, TCM's Senior Vice President for Programming, discusses this years film festival that will run from April 6-9 in Hollywood."

Here 'tis the linkadinkadoo: http://ktep.org/post...film-festival-3

If you see Mr. Tabesh running around at the festival, make sure you tell him thank you for 8 fabulous years of cinematic festival fun!

What a Festival you all have planned for this year and all in just eleven months!  They seem to get better each year despite always losing so many classic people between them.  No wonder you couldn't wait until May. 

 

That guest lineup is amazing.  There are so many I's love to meet starting with Ruta Lee whom I've loved since I was a kid-not that she'd want to hear that from somebody who's 71.   

 

I'd also like to know if Alex Trebek has any acting credits on film, either here or in Canada..  I mentioned on another thread that I've been watching his predecessor on Jeopardy, Art Fleming, starring on a 50's Western series and wonder if he has anything similar in his background we can look at..

 

It's good this is happening now.  We're all still mourning RO and this is a chance for those who can come to do it together while also celebrating him in the place where he put so much of himself making the Festival what it has become.  I'll be thinking of all of you while catching what will be on TCM for us back home to share.  Everybody have a great time and get there and back safely.

Some fine additions to the festival and some tough decisions to be made.

 

Panique is a superb film noir, with a great performance by Michel Simon and imaginative direction by Julien Duvivier. French anti-semitism, collaboration with the Nazis, and mob behavior form the subtext of this dark story.

 

Seeing Genevieve Bujold at the showing of King of Hearts is high on my list this year.

I agree, James. Judy Holliday wrested the archetype of the dumb blonde from several prominent actreses and turned it on its kister with "Born Yesterday," and the talent of William Holden was the gorgeous catalyst.

IMG_1734_zpsqsjutx8m.jpg

An article from Pictures magazine in 1946 or 1947 stated that author Betty McDonald's book, "The Egg and I" was "the country's biggest coast-to-coast laugh since Wrong Way Corrigan landed" on the shores of Ireland. Selling more than one million copies, the film starred Claudette Colbert and Fred MacMurray.

This year at the festival, Kate MacMurray will introduce the 1947 film.

IMG_1735_zpsj584fome.jpg

To publicize the film, professional huckster Jim Moran sat on an ostrich egg to hype the film. Read more about Moran's antics here: http://hoaxes.org/ar...alink/jim_moran"

I'll bet TCM Film Festival pass holders have an update by Wednesday. So get ready!

To me Judy Holliday put life back into American comedies.    Of course comedies were at their height during the 30s leading up to the war.   Post war comedies just didn't have the same magic as those made prior to the war  (with the exception of the those by Preston Sturges and a few other).

 

Holliday and the films she was in recaptured that 30s magic.

While doing some research, I ran across a comment from character actress Thelma Ritter about "Born Yesterday."

IMG_1719_zpsyypiboio.jpeg

Ritter went to the premiere with good friends in 1951:"This Judy Holliday is only wonderful. Please see it." I feel the same way today. Many of the topics featured in the film are relevant now as they were then, and Holliday is all decked out in those Jean Louis ensembles.

Consider adding this film, also featuring William Holden and Broderick Crawford, to your TCM Film Festival screenings....

From The TCM Film Fest Website:

 

Turner Classic Movies (TCM) will honor legendary father and son film icons Carl Reiner and Rob Reiner during a hand and footprint ceremony at the world-famous TCL Chinese Theater IMAX® in Hollywood during the eigth annual TCM Classic Film Festival on Friday, April 7. TCM will celebrate the storied careers of the father and son duo who have collectively worked in the industry for over a century and amassed countless accolades along the way. This marks the first occasion that a father and son have jointly been honored with a hand and footprint ceremony at the TCL Chinese Theater IMAX®.

 

Industry titan Carl Reiner has been a celebrated director and comedic performer for more than 70 years, gaining a loyal following for his sketch comedy work alongside Sid Caesar and Mel Brooks and for directing such beloved films as Oh, God! (1977), Dead Men Don’t War Plaid (1982), Where’s Poppa? (1970), The Jerk (1979) and for creating and writing The Dick Van Dyke Show, for which he collected multiple Emmys® during his career.

 

Filmmaker and political activist Rob Reiner has had an equally illustrious career, from his Emmy®-award winning role on the revered television sitcom All in the Family to his work behind the camera, directing such American cinematic classics as This Is Spinal Tap (1984), Stand by Me (1986), The Princess Bride (1987), When Harry Met Sally… (1989), Misery (1990) and A Few Good Men (1992). Renowned for his staunch support of civil rights, Reiner is a co-founder of the American Foundation for Equal Rights and has long lent his support to non-profits that address social and environmental issues.

 

 

"Carl Reiner is a genuine comedy pioneer, a breakthrough artist from Hollywood's golden era," said TCM host Ben Mankiewicz, who also serves as the official host of the TCM Classic Film Festival. "It's never easy following in the footsteps of a force as innovative and creative as that, but Rob found his own way to success, as an actor, first as a vital part of the social relevance of All in the Family, then as thoughtful director and producer of both comedies and dramas. There's is a family that belongs forever imprinted in Hollywood history."

 

This marks the seventh consecutive year TCM has featured a hand and footprint ceremony at the legendary TCL Chinese Theatre IMAX®. In 2011, Peter O'Toole was the honoree, followed by Kim Novak in 2012, Jane Fonda in 2013, Jerry Lewis in 2014, Christopher Plummer in 2015 and Francis Ford Coppola in 2016.
