Agreed! And if Barbra Streisand and Omar Sharif appear at the opening night gala for *Funny Girl* , Spotlight passholders won't be disappointed if they attend the *Vanity Fair* party, too. Maybe this year photos of the *Vanity Fair* party might actually be showcased in *Vanity Fair* magazine.

I hope James Brolin shows up, too! ;)

And as long as we are speculating about Barbra Streisand's appearance at the Turner Classic Film Festival 2013, passholders might want to read James Grissom's pre-publication blog entry for November 13, *Follies of God.* Tennesse Williams waxes and wanes about Streisand's artistry and talent, and the implications and responsibility of the truly gifted: http://jamesgrissom.blogspot.com/

No kidding? Wow!

And that is why the price went up. "Supply and Demand". If they can sell out within three days, they are not over-priced.

Did I hear someone mention Texas and politics? I'm in!!!

Unfortunately, Rick Perry's divorce from the secession movement means I'll never get to see him perp walked out to a police car. Now, that would be a cinematic journey worth seeing!!

I like the fact that there is a petition to revoke the citizenship of everyone who signs a petition to secede. This is obviously a "Hot Topic" among the government and history professors where I teach.

*"It is indeed part of our Texas Constitution, but I think there are some folks who are about 150 years too late."* - SueSue

80,000 Texans have signed this petition in the past week! You need to talk to your unhappy neighbors. But I do agree that it will be as successful as the Battle Of The Alamo.

*"...if you know any legislators who can help facilitate my travel plans, I will indeed be grateful."*

No legislators. But if you can get into Mexico, I know a coyote that sneak you into California for the weekend.

Well, Kyle, you have an excellent point, there. It is indeed part of our Texas Constitution, but I think there are some folks who are about 150 years too late. And with our booming job market, and large industrial complexes, I don't think Uncle Sam wants to part with us just yet.

As for the California tourist visa/LA passport, I am well aware of the California cash crunch. The bite out of my budget increases every time I step over the state line!

In the meantime, if you know any legislators who can help facilitate my travel plans, I will indeed be grateful. :)

Did you buy your pass yet SueSue?

You might want to hold off because we here in California are thinking of not letting Texans into the state after they've seceeded from the Union.
http://abclocal.go.c...tate&id=8884391

Otherwise if we do let Texans into California, I've also heard that the tourist visa for Texans will be expensive. (We've got a budget to balance, doncha know.)

It was wonderful to see Olivia De Havilland on 60 Minutes tonight. If you haven't seen it yet, don't miss it. It's during Morley Safer's second installment of his interview with author David McCullough.

McCullough asks De Havilland what brought her to Paris, and she smiles and says so coyly, "A Frenchman!"

Gala Screening of Newly Restored Funny Girl (1968) To Launch Fourth Annual TCM Classic Film Festival

Vanity Fair Returns for Fourth Year as Festival Partner and Co-Presenter of Opening Night After-Party


Turner Classic Movies (TCM) will open the 2013 edition of the TCM Classic Film Festival with the world premiere of a brand new restoration of the musical classic Funny Girl (1968). TCM’s own Robert Osborne, who serves as official host for the festival, will introduce Funny Girl to kick off the four-day, star-studded event taking place Thursday, April 25 – Sunday, April 28, 2013, in Hollywood. In addition to Funny Girl, the TCM Classic Film Festival will feature world premiere restorations of The General (1926), Giant (1956) and The Great Escape (1962), with many additional titles to be announced later.


Passes for the 2013 TCM Classic Film Festival are set to go on sale to the public Thursday, Nov. 15, at noon (ET). Passes can be purchased exclusively through the official festival website: http://www.tcm.com/festival.


Also announced today, Vanity Fair will serve as official partner for the TCM Classic Film Festival for the fourth consecutive year. Vanity Fair will co-present the after-party following the gala opening-night screening of Funny Girl.


Restored in 4K from the original camera negative by Sony Pictures Colorworks in celebration of its 45th anniversary, Funny Girl stars Barbra Streisand in her Oscar®-winning performance as Ziegfeld Follies comedienne Fanny Brice. Omar Sharif co-stars as high-rolling entrepreneur Nicky Arnstein, with Hollywood veteran William Wyler in the director's chair. Adapted from the popular Broadway musical that earned Streisand a Tony nomination, Funny Girl features a score by Jule Styne and Bob Merrill. Among the many memorable songs featured are "People" and "Don't Rain on My Parade," both of which became signature Streisand hits.


Among the first films slated for the 2013 TCM Classic Film Festival are three perennial favorites to be screened for the first time ever in restored editions:


• The General (1926) – World Premiere Restoration
Buster Keaton's timeless Civil War comedy returns in a newly restored edition presented with a live score written and performed by the Alloy Orchestra. For this restoration, The General was scanned from the original nitrate camera negative and restored through the collaborative efforts of the Cohen Film Collective, the Library of Congress Packard Campus for Audio-Visual Conservation and TCM.


• Giant (1956) – World Premiere Restoration


George Stevens directed this sprawling adaptation of Edna Ferber's Texas saga starring Elizabeth Taylor, Rock Hudson and James Dean. This 4K restoration from the original camera negative was completed by Warner Bros. Motion Picture Imaging under the direction of George Stevens Jr.


• The Great Escape (1963) – World Premiere of 50th Anniversary Restoration
Steve McQueen heads an all-star cast in this blockbuster World War II tale based on actual events. The Great Escape was restored by Metro Goldwyn Mayer Studios at Deluxe Digital Media using a 4K scan of the original camera negative.
