    Who's Gone To Hell With "Madam Satan"?

    I’m bumping up this topic started by Kyle Kersten, hlywdkjk, in 2010, to say that we’ve had Madame Curie appear at the fest in 2015. Is it time for Madame Satan? The CountessDeLave agreed!

    Wonderful, jp01104! The LA County Museum, several studio tours and the Hollywood Forever Cemetery tour are jaunts that annual TCMFF pass holders enjoy! Musso and Franks’s, The Smokehouse, El Coyote, and Bordner’s are watering holes favored for their classic Hollywood ambiance. The fabulous Larry Edmunds Bookstore also is a popular stop on the pass holder trail for books, posters, and photos. 😉

    Prediction: If Robert Redford is chosen as the recipient of the Robert Osborne Memorial Award, he might select his favorite film, Jeremiah Johnson, for the opening night gala.... (Directed by Sydney Pollack Written by Edward Anhalt and John Milius, 1972)

    CAN'T WAIT TO READ THIS NEW BOOK FEATURED ON THE TCM WEBSITE! HANDSOME JOHNNY: The Life and Death of Johnny Roselli, Gentleman Gangster, Hollywood Producer, CIA Assasin A rich biography of the legendary figure at the center of the century’s darkest secrets: an untold story of golden age Hollywood, modern Las Vegas, JFK-era scandal and international intrigue from Lee Server, the New York Times bestselling author of Ava Gardner: Love is Nothing… A singular figure in the annals of the American underworld, Johnny Rosselli’s career flourished for an extraordinary fifty years, from the bloody years of bootlegging in the Roaring Twenties--the last protégé of Al Capone—to the modern era of organized crime as a dominant corporate power. The Mob’s “Man in Hollywood,” Johnny Rosselli introduced big-time crime to the movie industry, corrupting unions and robbing moguls in the biggest extortion plot in history. A man of great allure and glamour, Rosselli befriended many of the biggest names in the movie capital—including studio boss Harry Cohn, helping him to fund Columbia Pictures--and seduced some of its greatest female stars, including Jean Harlow and Marilyn Monroe. In a remarkable turn of events, Johnny himself would become a Hollywood filmmaker—producing two of the best film noirs of the 1940s. Following years in federal prison, Rosselli began a new venture, overseeing the birth and heyday of Las Vegas. Working for new Chicago boss Sam Giancana, he became the gambling mecca’s behind-the-scenes boss, running the town from his suites and poolside tables at the Tropicana and Desert Inn, enjoying the Rat Pack nightlife with pals Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin. In the 1960s, in the most unexpected chapter in an extraordinary life, Rosselli became the central figure in a bizarre plot involving the Kennedy White House, the CIA, and an attempt to assassinate Fidel Castro. Based upon years of research, written with compelling style and vivid detail, Handsome Johnny is the great telling of an amazing tale. And a little birdie told me I'm somewhere in the acknowledgements! 😍

    Reminders: A 25th Anniversary Fan Dedication Contest! Fest passes go on sale November 13! Writer Gary Loggins give us the lowdown....Could this be a fest offering on the other side of the country with an intro by Peter Bogdanovich? “The day has finally arrived. November 2, 2018. I ordered a free trial of Netflix specifically so I could watch the completed version of Orson Welles’ final film, THE OTHER SIDE OF THE WIND . Welles worked on this project for over a decade, and the footage sat for decades more before finally being restored and re-edited. A film buff’s dream come true – perhaps. There were questions I needed answered. Was there enough salvageable material to make a coherent movie? Does it follow Welles’ vision? Would it live up to the hype? Was it worth the wait?” Fest Ponderance: Robert Redford is my candidate for the Robert Osborne Memorial Award, so a Redford film may be an opening night choice....

ANNOUNCED FILMS FOR 2019 BUTCH CASSIDY AND THE SUNDANCE KID (1969) Considered by many to be one of the greatest American Westerns and “buddy movies” of all time, this 50th anniversary screening stars Paul Newman and Robert Redford as an unforgettable pair of bank robbers on the run from the law with their companion Etta (Katharine Ross) in tow. ESCAPE FROM ALCATRAZ (1953) 40th Anniversary World Premiere Restoration. Clint Eastwood stars in this thrilling drama based on the real-life events of three prisoners’ escape from the infamous maximum-security prison on Alcatraz Island. FROM HERE TO ETERNITY (1953) Burt Lancaster, Montgomery Clift, Frank Sinatra and Deborah Kerr star in this Oscar-winning romance about a group of soldiers and the women who love them stationed in Oahu, Hawaii in the days leading up to the December 7, 1941 attack on Pearl Harbor. GONE WITH THE WIND (1939) Clark Gable and Vivien Leigh embark on a torrid romance during the onset and aftermath of the American Civil War, in this epic adaptation of Margaret Mitchell’s best-selling book. HELLO, DOLLY! (1969) Adapted from a successful stage play of the same name, dance legend Gene Kelly directed this 50th anniversary musical starring Barbra Streisand as a head-strong matchmaker that travels to New York with intentions of finding Walter Matthau, a miserly “half-a-millionaire,” a wife. HOLIDAY (1938) World Premiere Restoration. Cary Grant and Katharine Hepburn star in director George Cukor’s comedy about a self-made businessman who intends to take a holiday from work before marrying into a well-to-do family.

LOVE AFFAIR (1939) Charles Boyer and Irene Dunne star as a painter and singer who meet by chance onboard a transatlantic voyage. Though already engaged to other people, they make a pact to reunite at the top of the Empire State Building in six months, but fate has other plans in mind. SUNRISE (1927) In this silent film directed by F.W. Murnau, George O’Brien is a married man and father whose affair with a city woman (Margaret Livingston) unleashes his inner demons. Torn between the object of his desire and his loving wife (Janet Gaynor in an Oscar-winning performance), O’Brien is driven to the brink of madness. TARZAN AND HIS MATE (1934) Maureen O’Sullivan is the Jane to Johnny Weissmuller’s Tarzan in this pre-Code adventure in which the jungle couple’s life is disturbed by ivory hunting men on safari.
