Thanks. I did not look at the running times for films airing on TCM February 2nd. The Fonda film is quite long. Do we know for sure that TCM is airing the documentary instead, and how come it is not listed correctly on the February schedule?

 

The Oscar-nominated documentary has a run time of 52 minutes, according to the IMDb, while the film TCM has programmed is scheduled to run from 5:00PM t0 8:00PM, more than triple that length of time. This indicates that TCM will be airing the Fonda film which, as my research indicates, was not nominated for any Academy Awards.

According to the AMPAS website, it was nominated in the category of Best Documentary (Feature).

"You've had a few hours given back to you from life. A few hours in which to change your minds and your hearts. When you came into the grounds of this inn, you came into a place as it was a year ago today. You were in your own time, but the house and garden and Gwyneth and I are in the time of last year. The day the bomb hit. When you go away and walk up the road you will have spent a night in an inn. But if you look back from the crest of the hill, the halfway house will not be here...but if you remember, it will be as you remember a forgotten snatch of song. It will be a picture before your eyes. Gone before you realize it is there. Or an echo in the hidden places of your mind. But you have been here...and the world is what you make it." -- Mervyn Johns, THE HALFWAY HOUSE.

How did you find out this information, Barton? Was the documentary nominated for an Oscar?

The programmers made an embarrassing error on this day's schedule. Yes, there was a 1965 film called BATTLE OF THE BULGE and, yes, it was nominated for an Oscar. However, it was not the Henry Fonda epic which TCM is showing but rather a documentary which was subtitled THE BRAVE RIFLES; the film was narrated by actor Arthur Kennedy and it has never aired on TCM.

TopBilled and the Oscars

Part 2 of 31

 

I arrived in Stockholm about an hour ago. But Oscar II of Sweden is unavoidably detained. So I decided to ask my old friend Louis Calhern if he wouldn't mind posing for a picture in some of the king's clothing. He kindly obliged.

I had a fun time with Oscar de la Hoya and Cheech Marin last night, but I am back at LAX now. Soon I am catching a flight to Stockholm. Oscar II of Sweden is going to help me introduce Day 2 of TCM's 31 Days of Oscar. The royal family has sent a special jet to pick me up. Check back...

We're heading to East L.A. for some cerveza, where Cheech Marin might join us.

I have it on good authority that the theme for 31 Days of Oscar 2016 is called "360 Degrees of Hermione Gingold." Ms. Gingold is featured in both the first and the last films on the festival's schedule.

Why her..?

We have a leap year in 2016, and it's causing me to get a bit excited. As a result I have decided to look at TCM's daily schedule from February 1st to March 2nd in a somewhat splashy sort of way--with some Oscars I know. 

 

As soon as they have finished laying down the red carpet, I will be off on a flight to see the first Oscar. He's going to help me introduce TCM's offerings for February 1st. So please check back...
