    June Schedule is Up! Jane Powell SOTM

    I looked thru June's schedule twice and I don't see the star tribute to Alice Faye and Don Ameche. Which day/night is it on?

    M

    Looking at this photo which was probably taken in the mid 1920's I noticed that not only does Marion look like Joan Crawford did in the late 1920's but she looks much older than she did in the 1930's. Does anyone know if she had plastic surgery? If the photo wouldn't have had Marion's name I never would have recognized her.

    THE WILD PARTY no longer scheduled

    Maybe I'm different from most film lovers but I do look forward many times to seeing films if only for their historical perspective or their rarity. I've been a big fan of Jean Harlow and Clara Bow for years so when Film Forum was presenting a festival of Fox pre codes I went to NYC for a few days just to see "Goldie" and "Hoopla" which were playing as a double feature. "Goldie" is a lousy film but it starred Jean and Spencer Tracy and being a Fox film it's never shown anywhere other than a film festival. For Harlow fans this is the most elusive film. I wanted to see "Hoopla" as this was Clara's swan song on screen and another rarity which has never been televised.

    Starring John Boles March 4

    I'm also happy about this. Some rare films will be shown including the restored color "King Of Jazz". Finally something to look forward to. And so far, they haven't taken it off the schedule.

    TCM has a new owner

    So what will this mean for TCM?

    THE WILD PARTY no longer scheduled

    Here we go again. Another rare film that TCM had on the schedule and now knocked off. It's very frustrating. I was really looking forward to this first talkie from Clara Bow. TCM has shown "Design For Living" several times already. Bummer.

    Carl Laemmle Documentary

    I'm confused; "antoniacarlotta" stated that Carl Laemmle saved hundreds of Jewish families from Europe during WWII by signing affidavits for them and setting them up with homes and jobs in the United States. How could he have done this when WWII began on Sept. 1, 1939 and Carl Laemmle died on Sept, 24, 1939? He died three weeks after the war began.

    Movies that won't be shown on TCM

    And they did this twice! Two different times they scheduled it then pulled it out with no explanation.

    Movies that won't be shown on TCM

    Add to this any Fox pre codes. Actually just about all Fox (pre 20th Century Fox) films. Rarely, maybe one may be shown. I can't even remember (and I'm been watching for ages) the last time TCM has shown a Fox film as a TCM premiere.

    Ernie Kovacs

    I enjoyed watching the shows and even stayed up to watch the last one at 1:45am. He was really ahead of his time with his use of special effects and humor. Some of the skits remind me of Laugh In with Rowan and Martin. It's sad that he died so young and tragically. I really admire his wife who worked tirelessly for years on the stage and TV to pay off his debts. It's also tragic and ironic that their only child together was also killed in an auto crash twenty years after her Dad.

    April 2019 Schedule is up

    I know it hasn't been shown in over a decade as it's the only Garbo film (other than the lost "The Divine Woman" and her foreign films) which I don't have taped.

    April 2019 Schedule is up

    Where is "Johnboy"? I know he/she would be thrilled to have Garbo is SOTM. There haven't been any posts from this fan for a long time. Did something happen?

    April 2019 Schedule is up

    I was wondering the same thing. "As You Desire Me" is rarely shown even though it was an MGM film. When I first saw the April schedule and that Garbo was SOTM the first thought in my mind was finally they'll show "As You Desire Me". I went thru the list twice and saw it's not scheduled. What is the reason why TCM keeps this film in mothballs? Are there some "rights issues" involved? Since Garbo is SOTM and TCM has easy access to all her films why did they leave out "As You Desire Me" and "Inspiration". Why did they leave these two films out?

    The Carole Landis Tribute

    I would definitely record "Turnabout". I remember when I watched it for the first time it made me laugh so hard it hurt. It was very lighthearted comedy and is still funny after almost 80 years.
