    TCM Primetime has African-American films directed by Sidney Poitier, Julie Dash, Ivan Dixon, and more. A special Red Foxx short comes on early in the a.m. Director Julie Dash, a guest on TCM’s Trailblazing Women In Film, helmed the moving feature Daughters of the Dust, scheduled tonight at 10 p.m. Central, after Poitier’s fabulous London love story, A Warm December.

    TCM Senior Researcher Alexa Foreman, Miss Peggy Cummins, and VP of Talent, Darcy Hettrich in Club TCM in 2012.... Femme Fatale Peggy Cummins, a TCM Film Festival Special Guest in 2012, was a lovely lady. She told me that she was still amazed and surprised at the popularity of her film, Gun Crazy, when I visited with her at the lobby of the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel in 2012. Cummins had just flown in from her home in England, but seemed thrilled to be back in Hollywood to share her experiences with pass holders. Her soft, lilting voice and her open manner seemed light years away from her performance as Annie Laurie Starr in the 1950 film she helped introduce with Eddie Muller, the Czar of Noir, and Director of the Film Noir Foundation. Peggy Cummins and Eddie Muller at a film noir festival in Zagreb, Yugoslavia... The Hollywood Reporter article announcing Miss Cummins passing:

    Tonight is TCM's New Year's Eve Marathon of the Thin Man series starring William Powell and Myrna Loy! "For this year's most sophisticated holiday evening, TCM has gathered all six entries from a movie series that defined urbane elegance: the Thin Man films. So ring in the New Year in style with one of the great screen couples-- Nick and Nora Charles, as played by William Powell and Myrna Loy. These glamorous Manhattanites trade quips while sipping martinis and solving murders with the aid of their famous wirehaired terrier, Asta.The movies are shown in chronological order, ranging from the original The Thin Man (1934) to the final entry in the series, Song of the Thin Man (1947). In between are After the Thin Man (1936), in which the Charleses encounter rising star James Stewart; Another Thin Man (1939), which adds a baby to the mix; Shadow of the Thin Man (1941), the last of the series to be directed by W.S. Van Dyke; and The Thin Man Goes Home (1945), with Nick visiting his family in New England and, of course, becoming embroiled in a murder case."

    Mel on The Producers... See that link up there? I think Mel wants pass holders to do their homework before the opening night film at the TCMFF 2018...

    The 2017 edition of TCM Remembers aired today right before Casablanca. Get out the hankies! Or just pretend you were cutting onions for the potato salad....

    Hope you enjoyed the fabulous documentary last night and the National Film Registry Movies screened. “Wanda” was first featured during #TrailblazingWomenInFilm a few years ago. More Christmas films are scheduled tonight on TCM... in the meantime, enjoy this Yuletide blog post from author Jacqueline Lynch:

    Well, there is still no official word concerning the TBA programming listed on the monthly schedule for December 13 here. Stay tuned! There are no films listed from 8 p.m. December 13, until 6 a.m. December 13, the next day. Could there be a block of special interviews from the TCM Film Festival? Could they be announcing a new permanent host? Could there be special editions of Private Screenings with Robert Osborne interviewing former guests? Guess I'll have to tune in and find out.

    This is fabulous news, Moira. I can't wait to hear more about Michael Curtiz and Alan K. Rode's process for developing this book! Thank you.
