William Friedkin's appearance on last weeks' The Essentials reveals how he admires many classic films. I enjoy hearing about his interpretations of the importance of "The Quiet Man," and Alec Baldwin's reverence and deference to Friedkin's opinions gave the director the opportunity to share his emotional connections to John Ford's "greatest film."
mn5BR1G.jpg

Friedkin returns to The Essentials again this Saturday with his comments to Alec for "The Manchurian Candidate." Enjoy Angela Lansbury's Word of Mouth segment about working with Laurence Harvey if you can catch it. These wonderful comments from the actors, directors, and entertainment industry professionals on the TCM Word of Mouth segments enhances viewer enjoyment of upcoming film screenings, and I enjoy when they are added to the schedule before a relevant movie showing.

Be on alert, potential TCMFF 2018 pass holders! It won't be long before an announcement about the fest dates! Last year, we were informed on August 25. See you soon!

It's about that time of year to begin commiserating over the dates of the Turner Classic Film Festival for 2018. When will it happen ? In April? In March? In May?

F2DsNcd.jpg?1

 

 

When will the announcement about the exact dates be made?

 

Right now the odds seem to be on April 26-29 because those are dates "unavailable" for reservations on the HRH website, but we can't make reservations yet because no official announcement has been made.

 

Remember that last year, if pass holders were making a reservation at the Hollywood Roosevelt, they had to pay for at least one night of their stay the moment their reservation was made. (Some pass holders were required to pay for the first and last night of their stay.)

Stay tuned and be vigilant!  :-)

 

 

 

In other festival news, Richard Dreyfuss appears at the Plaza Classic this weekend in El Paso: http://www.tcm.com/t...ival-in-El-Paso

 

Also, its National Book Lovers' Day. Check out these new titles if you haven't already: http://www.tcm.com/t...-new-books.html

In Kendra Bean & Anthony Uzarowski's new take on the life of movie icon, "Ava Gardner: A Life in Movies" (Running Press), the co-authors shift the focus from the publicity writers' descriptions of her as"the world's most beautiful animal" to her real life as a person who was an imperfect but vibrant human being and working actress. If you would like to learn more about Ava Gardner, the individual, please join us at The Silver Screen Oasis on Sat., July 29th & Sun., July 30th for an online Q & A about the actress' life and career.

uyYnKpI.jpg

She was an astonishing beauty when young (and a more interesting one when older). as well as a movie star, and a wife to three dynamic but rather wearying men. As Anthony Usarowksi explains, beyond all that, Ava Gardner “was a real person, and she was an actor as well. There is a legacy there that needs to be looked at. It’s not just image.” The pair have fashioned a beautiful coffee table book that celebrates Gardner's humor, friendships, and vulnerability as well as making a thoughtful inquiry into the contrast between how a woman looks and how she feels in society.

Lkh3MuE.jpg

Described by critics as "a compelling, photograph-rich portrait of a complex, talented actress," the book can be found at the links below, as can a link to the Silver Screen Oasis Guest Authors Index where you are welcome to post a question (simple registration is required to post queries). All are invited on July 29 & 30. :Please join us in this celebration of all things Ava!

Her writing has also been published by the British Film Institute and Bright Lights Film Journal, and she has lectured on cinema at the National Portrait Gallery (London), Victoria and Albert Museum, the BFI, the San Francisco Presidio Officers' Club, and the Walt Disney Family Museum. She lives in London.

Anthony Uzarowski has an MA in Film Studies from University College London.

Unfortunately, the hosting service for my photo images has disabled third party sharing. The "service" is now charging $399.00 a year for this service, and gave no warning of the change in its platform.

In the meantime, Sue Sue is open to suggestions. :-)

MARY MALLORY IS COMING TO THE SILVER SCREEN OASIS WITH STEPHEN X. SYLVESTER, JUNE 17-18 TO DISCUSS HOLLYWOOD AT PLAY! Her co-author, Stephen Sylvester, author of MGM: HOLLYWOODS GREATEST BACKLOT, has a new book out in the fall, TWENTIETH CENTURY-FOX: A CENTURY OF ENTERTAINMENT, and is also scheduled to appear.


81YnUe0uWbL._SY200__zpsyjk1qgpj.jpg

Mary Mallory is a film historian, photograph archivist, and researcher, focusing on Los Angeles and early film history. She writes theatre reviews for "The Tolucan Times" and blogs for the "LA Daily Mirror." Mallory served on Hollywood Heritage, Inc.'s Board of Directors, and acts as a docent for the Hollywood Heritage Museum. As a member of the Studio City Neighborhood Council, she produced the events, "Mack Sennett and the Birth of Studio City," "80th Anniversary of Republic Pictures," and "50th Anniversary Celebration of CBS Radford Studios," and helped produce the 75th Anniversary Celebration of Republic Pictures. She has given presentations on a variety of historical topics at Hollywood Heritage Museum, Pasadena Museum of History, Conference of California Historical Societies, Egyptian Theatre, Book Soup, Pasadena First United Methodist Church, Will & Ariel Durant Library, and the Studio City Library. "Hollywood Celebrates the Holidays" has been named one of the best film books of 2015 by both Huffington Post and Ain't It Cool News.

Stephen X. Sylvester is also co-author of MGM: Hollywood's Greatest Backlot with Stephen Bingen and Michael Troyan, and is also co-author of the upcoming 20th Century Fox: A Century of Entertainment with Jeffrey Thompson. He is also the former Executive Director of the Wattles Mansion and Gardens, Hollywood’s last remaining original intact estate. In addition, he has lectured on the Hollywood studio system for the Los Angeles Club, the Art Directors Guild of America, and the American Cinematheque at the Egyptian Theatre in Hollywood.

From Stage 32 about Stephen X. Sylvester:

"Alone among our trio of authors, Stephen was lucky enough to have explored MGM’s legendary backlots in 1968 and 1975. That experience was the genesis for this book and sparked a decades-long obsession which would ultimately lead to a collection of studio artifacts and to the accumulation of dozens of hours of oral histories and interviews with studio “survivors.” He is currently working on a documentary based on their shared backlot reminiscences. His other film projects include (as director-producer) “Robert Kinoshita: Dreams, Designs and Robots,” “Richard Anderson: An Actor’s Journey,” and “Gurdon W. Wattles: The Man and the Mansion.”


From Lyons Press about the book:

"Fans from around the world continue to be fascinated by classic-era Hollywood (1925-1960) and its larger-than-life stars. Nostalgia for this simpler, more glamorous time offers a safe and temporary escape from our complex lives. The authors capture this era with in Hollywood at Play, featuring unique and rarely seen images of such legendary stars as Audrey Hepburn, Elizabeth Taylor, Bette Davis, Joan Crawford, Marilyn Monroe, Clark Gable, Judy Garland, W.C. Fields, and Tyrone Power enjoying fun and relaxation outside of their studios.

Hollywood at Play presents iconic images of the classic stars taking time out from the demands of celebrity to enjoy dancing, bike-riding, roller skating, bowling, and playing tennis; diversions offering a chance to relax and be themselves. This delightful and unique book will appeal to classic movie fans, and enthusiasts of celebrity, fashion, and Hollywood history.

The photos contained in Hollywood at Play come from the collection of Eddie Brandt’s Saturday Matinee, Hollywood’s first and oldest family-owned photo archive. From the 800,000 images available in their collection the authors have chosen over 200 fascinating and rare photos to include in this book. Among the photos are eight rare photos of a young Marilyn Monroe at play; Mickey Rooney and Judy Garland frolicking at a pool party; Steve McQueen and James Garner astride McQueen’s iconic motorcycle between takes of The Great Escape;Bobby Darin and Sandra Dee out on the town; Sammy Davis Jr. hamming it up with Dean Martin and Frank Sinatra; and many others."

I agree, jamesjazzguitar! I wish they'd been involved in a few more films for us to enjoy, but I'm grateful for the legacies we do have. Audrey seems to always give us hope about tomorrow, and Vivien Leigh seems to help us understand and embrace our pasts.

Thank you so much, wouldbestar! I hope all is well in Tampa. I know you've had plenty of rain lately....

 

 

Aren't you enjoying Audrey Hepburn as TCM's Star of the Month? I know I am!

 

 

Here's a nice article in Vogue about Christie's upcoming auction of some of her personal items that will benefit some of her favorite causes: http://www.vogue.com...017-sean-ferrer

 

I'm also really enjoying Audrey Hepburn as SOTM.    But like Vivien Leigh,  I wish Audrey had been in more films.

 

Oh well,  we need to be happy with what is available.

Sue Sue, Day by Day...
My photo archive of this year's #TCMFF 2017
 
Monday, APRIL 3, 2017
 
As credentialed media for the festival, I again felt lucky to be included with journalists and photographers who chronicle all the fun...
 
I had arrived in Hollywood at little earlier than usual to do research for my upcoming book about Thelma Ritter, one of our favorite character actresses here on the TCM Message Boards, and I spent several days at the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences Margaret Herrick Library in the Hills of Beverly.

 

 

Let us know when it comes out.  I love Thelma and you so you'll sell at least one copy.  Glad you enjoyed yourself at the Festival.

Sue Sue Day by Day at The TCM Film Festival 2017....

IMG_3740_zps4o171vll.jpg
This multi-hued harbinger welcomes me and my friends as we strolled through the peaceful, verdant paths lining our walking tour specially designed for #TCMFF pass holders landing in LA for our annual celebration....

IMG_3736_zpsmg2spaj6.jpg
(Countess DeLave, Karie Bible, Sue Sue, El Paso's Plaza Classic Film Festival rep Jack Fields, and Knoxville, Tennessee's Kaci Kielmar, all pass holders for the #TCMFF 2017.)

Sunshine, blue skies, and a group of like-minded, adventure-seeking travelers all gathered together at 10 a.m. on Wednesday, April 5, at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery to follow author and adorable historeian Karie Bible reveal some of the backstories of the beautiful people finding final repose in eternal peace.....

What are some of the special sights a visitor might see? Take a peek....

Oh, the places you'll go and the stories you'll hear from Karie Bible! I don't want to share some of her fabuous tales, treasures, and secrets because you can experience them all yourself if you take one of her tours...
