  1. Here is the most juvenile, elaborate synopsis of TCM Fest you're going to find - about fifty percent veers off the festival path into a booze soaked discovery of forgotten Los Angeles.... [Life at the 2011 Classic Film Festival: An Ode to Old Los Angeles|http://blog.wfmu.org/freeform/2011/05/life-at-the-2011-tcm-classic-film-festival.html] Have fun!

    Great character actors

    Vito Scotti vs. Jay Novello in a character acting steel cage match to the death.

    Photo of Yourself with (RIP) Tony Curtis?

    Here is the photo. Blurry at best. [On the wall|http://www.facebook.com/home.php#!/tcmtv] .

    Where are you travelling from?

    Oh, you must be thinking of Walter Pidgeon. He's the one from Montreal. Deanna Durbin is the one from Toronto in case you were wondering. Douglas Dumbrille? He's the one from Hamilton, Ontario... not to be confused with Ned Sparks from Guelph. or Edward Dmytryk from Grand Forks/Nelson British Columbia.

    Photo of Yourself with (RIP) Tony Curtis?

    I snapped a muddy pic of Tony embracing Eli Wallach upstairs at the Roosevelt when I first arrived. They were speaking to each other in Yiddish! Tony Curtis was, for me, the saddest part of the festival last year. I think most of us felt that his cognizance, or lack thereof, was a sign he was not long for this world.

    Where are you travelling from?

    I will be traveling from the city where comedian Jack Carter first met comedian Morey Amsterdam. I'm sure we all know where that is.

    Volkswalking at the Film Festival

    *home of Ed McMahon author of ?Here?s Johnny!?, ?When Television was Young? and ?For Laughing Out Loud: My Life and Good Times?.* I love how this Ed McMahon description infers that he was known for being a literary figure.

    Mickey Rooney Cancelled?

    I heard that he canceled as soon as he heard Jerry Mathers was coming. He was afraid that he would be victimized by that young punk - re: senior abuse.

    What movies would you like to see at the 2011 festival?

    And it sure would be a treat to see ANY Nigel Bruce - Basil Rathbone Holmes movies on the big screen.

    What movies would you like to see at the 2011 festival?

    Well, Forbidden Planet would be fun to see on the big screen - maybe as one of those midnight shows - and Leslie Nielson is alive and well, always game and always looking for work. Maybe Robbie the Robot could be brought in - sci-fi collector Bob Burns could probably arrange to have him crash through a brick wall (oh, wait that's the Kool-Aid man i'm thinking of).

    Hope our friends at the Meet the People Behind TCM Panel are reading this as they often say they do. I think I've got THE idea for next year. See if you don't agree. Being the world's biggest old timey comedy fan I suggest... A Large Panel Discussion - one hour (perhaps we'll need two hours?) with the surviving cast members of It's a Mad Mad Mad Mad World. How much fun would this be? Still alive. Sid Caesar, Carl Reiner, Stan Freberg, Marvin Kaplan, Mickey Rooney, Peter Falk and Jonathan Winters on stage talkin' hilarious anecdotes prior to a screening of the film. And who would you get to moderate? Why none other than Dick Cavett. And of course, if Cavett isn't available then I'll do it, ha ha. *cough* Anyway... I'm serious. I'll do it. Seriously.
  13. The week was so busy, I was barely able to file reports longer than a couple paragraphs. Well, I've finally made up for that. I hope you will all find it entertaining. From Ann Rutherford to Jim Backus, Corn Beef Sandwiches to Bob's Big Boy.

    I'm Not Gonna Know Who You All Are!

    Sweet. Hope that's a collapsible top hat!
