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.


IMG_1718_zpsbhmrp5t2.jpeg
Consider adding this film, also featuring William Holden and Broderick Crawford, to your TCM Film Festival screenings....

Updates: Hope we see the schecule for this year's festival by Wednesday of this week.

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.

Passes being posted on social media indicate that The Jerk will be part of the scheduled films.

 

Also, maybe  The Princess Bride.....as Rob Reiner directed it. Woohoo!

Rumor has it that Rob and Carl Reiner are the Double Mint Twins of the Hand and Footprint Ceremony.  The TCL Chinese Theatre tweeted and then, deleted the announcement. More later...

More Memories from Robert's friends:

From Eddie Muller's Facebook page:
 
EM%20and%20RO_zpsnwnecmpx.jpg
 
"THANKS FOR EVERYTHING, BOB. Excitement over beginning my new "Noir Alley" show on TCM turned to sorrow this morning with news that Robert Osborne has died. He'd been in failing health for quite a while, but we all held out hope he'd recover and reclaim his rightful place on the TCM throne. I called Bob the "Walter Cronkite of American Cinema," since he so brilliantly had earned the trust of the movie-loving public. He is, frankly, irreplaceable.
 
I first worked with Bob when he invited me to share hosting duties at his own film festival in Athens, Georgia. I was primarily there to introduce "Double Indemnity," but he surprised me by asking me to co-host a screening of "All About Eve"—his favorite movie! I knew a fraction of what Bob knew about the film, but he masterfully propped me up and made me look better than I deserved. I learned more about "hosting" from Bob in ten minutes onstage than I had in the previous years combined.
 
We had a great time a few years ago taping a segment for TCM called "A Night in Noir City," and once again I learned a LOT being able to watch him at work in the studio. Since then, it was always a pleasure to share time with him at TCM events, where he proved himself to be even more gracious and generous than anyone who only saw him on TV could really know.
 
A colleague at TCM called me this morning to share the news—he'd expected the call to be about the tremendous response to "Noir Alley." Instead, we commiserated about the network losing its iconic host, and I choked up when he said, "You know Bob adored you, right?" Well, it was mutual.

Robert Osborne was a wonderful man, and a brilliant light in all our movie-loving lives."

Author and historian Jeremy Arnold shared some lovely comments yesterday about working with Robert Osborne during his visit to The Silver Screen Oasis:

 

"With the sad news of Robert Osborne's passing today, I wanted to come back here and add that one of the highlights of doing this book was going through hours and hours of introduction videos from The Essentials broadcasts. All the highlighted quotes in the book by Osborne and the guest hosts are excerpts from their actual on-...air discussions (or, in some cases, from the transcripts of the complete discussion from which the on-air intro was edited). From the very beginning, a point of the book was to have Robert's voice running throughout. I'm a fan of his as much as anyone else, and it was a pleasure to see and hear him again talking about these great pictures. I will also note that I never had any trouble finding a good quote from him -- and this was not always the case with the guest hosts! In three cases, TCM could not locate videos or transcripts of the discussions, and Robert graciously wrote new blurbs specifically for this book. Those were for Double Indemnity, Rear Window, and Once Upon a Time in the West. And of course he wrote a great foreword. His personality is all over the book, and that was intentional. May he truly rest in peace."
