    TCM "Noir Summer" Script Contest

    TCM Message Board's SueSueApplegate is one of the "Top 20": Four beers and a cold sandwich are no way to spend a Friday night, but the dame has to be tailed by some bum, so I’m elected. - @suesueapplegate Next step is for a "Top 10" to be chosen and then finally the two winners: "Our friends at The Black List are culling this list of Top 20 to Top 10. After, that we’ll send the finalists to filmmaker Ed Burns for last judging. Look out for updates as we announce the winners." Good luck Christy!
  4. Napoleon is currently in the news, Hamster. Today, June 18, 2015 is the 200th anniversary of Napoleon's defeat at the Battle of Waterloo. Waterloo is located in Belgium and so Belgium minted a coin celebrating the anniversary of the French defeat at the battle. This, apparently, mightily ticked off France: http://www.thelocal.fr/20150609/belgium-coin-france-waterloo-napoleon The French flexed their muscles (where was the "Muscles from Brussels" - Jean-Claude Van Damme - when the Belgians needed him?) and the Belgians had to get rid of the minted coins. However, the sneaky Belgians managed to win their own "Battle of Waterloo - Part II" by minting some new coins that still ticked off the French but that the French could do nothing about officially by resorting to legal mumbo-jumbo. "New York Times" article here with a photo of the replacement coin: http://www.nytimes.com/2015/06/10/world/europe/belgium-commemorates-waterloo-with-euro-and-france-is-not-pleased.html?_r=0 200 years ago, Napoleon was the baddie of the day, and an Allied Coalition (Seventh Coalition) of Britain, Prussia, Austria, Russia, Sweden, Holland, Spain, Portugal, Sardinia, the Two Sicilies, and even Switzerland (also other countries) went into action against Napoleon and the French... Oh well... Don't think I'll be around in 2145 to see if any of the Axis Powers - Germany, Italy, Japan (and their allies - Finland, Hungary, Romania, Vichy France, etc.) - complain about anybody commemorating their defeat 200 years before...

    TCM "Noir Summer" Script Contest

    << Thanks, Randy, for posting information about this contest. I'm wondering why Canadians aren't eligible but maybe it's because a prize is being awarded. >> * No problems, HIH... And Canadians may not get to participate in any TCM contests, BUT we are going to get Soylent, starting today - June 15, 2015: http://www.thestar.com/news/world/2015/06/15/soylent-the-popular-meal-replacement-comes-to-canada.html Back to the contest, an example tweet from somebody named "Brokenbridge" is here: @tcm @theblcklst #NoirSummer "his thundering suavity was all he needed, we were going to morocco, and i didn't have s say in the matter" Looks like the person above needs to fix the typo in the tweet above. Otherwise the Facebook rules page for TCM has other information for entrants such as the hashtag #Noirsummer has to be included and is 25 characters, so that leaves only 115 characters for the rest of the script. The script has to be original, no quoting from an existing script. Also spaces do count as characters. More information here:https://www.facebook.com/notes/turner-classic-movies-tcm/tcm-noirsummer-twitter-script-contest/10153438504673200 #Noirsummer on Twitter here: https://twitter.com/hashtag/noirsummer
  7. Thanks, HIH! And would be fun if you were to be chosen... But ya gotta apply before you can be chosen, eh? It don't happen by magic... Let's see... Oops! TCM no longer accepting stories: https://turnerclassicmovies.apps.umbel.com/51b/summer2015fanfavorites/ That was sure a short window of opportunity... Oh well... On the topic of magic (see above), how come nobody has ever done a movie about the conflict over spiritualism between Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and Harry Houdini? They was friends but their opposing views on spiritualism - Doyle a believer, Houdini not - put a big strain on their friendship and eventually ended it, especially with Houdini actively debunking spiritualists and Doyle defending them. The Wiki biography on Houdini states: "Houdini chronicled his debunking exploits in his book, A Magician Among the Spirits, co-authored with C. M. Eddy, Jr., who was not credited. These activities cost Houdini the friendship of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. Doyle, a firm believer in spiritualism during his later years, refused to believe any of Houdini's exposés. Doyle came to believe that Houdini was a powerful spiritualist medium, and had performed many of his stunts by means of paranormal abilities and was using these abilities to block those of other mediums that he was "debunking".[60] This disagreement led to the two men becoming public antagonists and led Sir Arthur to view Houdini as a dangerous enemy.[18]" There's a bit of that in the flick "FairyTale: A True Story": http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/FairyTale:_A_True_Story but I don't think it's explored in depth. Don't think there's anything about it in the Tony Curtis flick, either: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Houdini_%28film%29 Nothing about the Doyle-Houdini conflict in "Death Defying Acts" too: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Death_Defying_Acts Anyway, enough of that...
  8. Howdy, My apologies if this has already been posted about elsewhere... Noticed on TCM Facebook feed information about TCM's Summer 2015 Fan Favorites submissions: https://turnerclassicmovies.apps.umbel.com/51b/summer2015fanfavorites/ At the link above, if you click on "skip" in the bottom right-hand corner next to the TCM Facebook link, you can submit a story to TCM directly. If they like it, TCM contacts you by email, as per instructions: https://www.facebook.com/notes/turner-classic-movies-tcm/fan-favorites-on-the-selection-process-technical-requirements-summer-2015/10153347396713200
  9. I have no idea, HIH??? The favoured (Canucklehead spelling) four feature began last November 29, 2014 on TCM with the favoured four being Aurora Bugallo, Paula Guthat, Joel Williams, and Miguel Rodriguez. Apparently the first favoured four fans were all friends who knew each other from the website "TCM Party": http://tcmparty.tumblr.com/about Guthat yaps about her experience here (she founded and is a "co-host" of "TCM Party", and Joel Williams is also a "co-host" of "TCM Party" ): http://paulascinemaclub.com/2014/11/22/so-im-going-to-be-on-tcm-next-saturday-1129/ And according to this article with tips on how to get chosen as a favoured fan, TCM is going to be doing the "Fan Favorites" thing a few times a year, each time with four chosen fans: https://willmckinley.wordpress.com/2015/01/12/5-tips-to-be-a-tcm-fan-favorites-programmer/ TCM Message Board users may feel that they have their 15 minutes of infamy already and may not be interested in becoming a member of TCM's Famous Favoured Four Fans Forever Formation of elite... Anyway, just FYI...

    THE APPRENTICESHIP OF DUDDY KRAVITZ

    Howdy All! And Happy Spring, eh! Anyway, FYI this article from the Feb. 16, 2013 issue of "The Toronto Star" discusses the restored version: http://www.thestar.com/entertainment/movies/2013/02/16/the_apprenticeship_of_duddy_kravitz_gets_new_life.html The article above states the film rights for Canada were held by Alliance Films. That company was bought by Entertainment One in 2013 (and the rights with it): http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Entertainment_One#Film Apparently Entertainment One has a distribution deal with Time Warner - the parent company of TBS and TCM... So who knows about American film rights?? The full film is on Facebook. Here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Yotq4Y8bl4c And here: It is a great movie and I've always enjoyed it.

    TCM Canada Schedule

    Not sure what to title this thread but wanted to have someplace to update people on TCM schedule changes for Canadians. A place to notify people who may not be aware of film substitutions for Canadians because the originally scheduled TCM movie is blacked out in Canada due to rights issues. For example, tonight, April 4 at 8:00 p.m. "Ruby Gentry" is not available for TCM Canadians. Instead, we get "Behave Yourself!" from 1951: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Behave_Yourself! Saturday, April 5, at 6:45 a.m., TCM Canucks get Hitchcock's "Bon Voyage" instead of "Screen Director's Playhouse." Sunday, April 6, at 2:00 p.m. we don't get "Charly," but "Night Must Fall" instead. Then, at 12 midnight, we get "The Prisoner of Zenda": http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Prisoner_of_Zenda_%281922_film%29 instead of "Old San Francisco." Before "Twenty Four Eyes" at 2:00 a.m., we get a Mary Pickford short instead of "Angora Love." At 4:45 a.m., we get "Lionpower from MGM" instead of "MGM Parade Show #27." Monday, April 7, at 11:30 a.m. we get "The Las Vegas Story" instead of "Forbidden Games." TCM Canucks can see changes by checking out the TCM website: www.tcm.com/schedule/canada/ and/or the "Now Playing" guide denotes films unavailable for Canadians - but not what is replacing the blacked out films. I subscribe to "Now Playing" so will try and do the entire month when I have a chance...
  12. Online auction for Guy Lombardo stuff coming up soon: http://www.lfpress.com/2015/01/19/museum-london-hopes-to-avert-a-sad-note-and-retain-memorabilia There will be 2 sessions with the first beginning this Friday, Jan. 23: http://gardnergalleries.com/online-auction-guy-lombardo-memorabilia-session-i The second session begins Friday, Feb. 13: http://gardnergalleries.com/online-auction-guy-lombardo-memorabilia-session-ii And there's a live auction today in London, Ontario of some other Guy Lombardo stuff: http://gardnergalleries.com/tuesday-january-20th-auction-0 You can check out photos of items at all the links above. Lombardo was featured in a few movies and on TV, of course: http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0518456/
  13. Happy Holidays to all! Great thread... And since the poll question concerns Glinda, may as well add to the fun here the conspiracy theory involving Glinda and the events in Oz (i.e. conspiracy of one in Glinda's case). For example, how did Glinda know the ruby slippers would fit Dorothy? And so on... Read Geoffrey Seeley's piece arguing Glinda was the mastermind behind all the action ("The Geo-Politics of Oz; Now It Can Be Told! Treachery, Tin Men, Hegemony, and Toto"): http://pqasb.pqarchiver.com/washingtonpost/doc/307709899.html?FMT=ABS&FMTS=&type=current&date=&author=&pub=&edition=&startpage=&desc= The full article isn't available for free so I'll provide the following so you get the gist of it (Seeley refers to Glinda as Glenda for some reason): "So taken aback was [Glenda] that she blurted, "Are you a good witch or a bad witch?" A cleverer opponent would have sensed Glenda's hidden agenda and reacted accordingly, but [Dorothy] instead revealed herself as a naive, harmless, lost traveler. Glenda, her relief and delight palpable, confidently called out the local residents, the Munchkins, to celebrate the witch's death. Glenda was forced to watch gamely as the Munchkins held a lighthearted inquest and wild celebration, lionizing Dorothy to excess, but at that moment the dead witch's sister, and Opportunity, arrived as one. Mad with grief and frustration at finding the two women there, the western witch immediately realized who killed her sister. But instead of demanding to know what Glenda thought she was doing in her late sister's territory, she focused her rage on Dorothy. Glenda, hearing Dorothy's craven responses, knew she had the most perfect patsy and immediately caused the dead witch's ruby slippers to appear on Dorothy's feet, further inflaming the western witch's malice. The Munchkins, in the meantime, were thoroughly traumatized by this tableau. Glenda, thinking quickly, told Dororthy she was unsafe there and must move on, a gesture meant to further the Munchkins' confidence in her protection of them. Dorothy was quickly hustled to the edge of town and sent on her way, at Glenda's suggestion, to the Emerald City, claiming only the Wizard of Oz could help Dorothy get home to Kansas. Glenda knew the ruby slippers would easily do the job but decided that a destabilizing force such as Dorothy might be just the thing to shake up her other rival."
  14. I probably remember David Steinberg most (http://www.canadaswalkoffame.com/inductees/2003/david-steinberg) from his old TV show waaaaaaay back in the 1970s: Yes, I know he did lots of other stuff too, but I remember that show... And his appearances on Carson... Sort of ironic that Canuck Steinberg's pick of "Nights of Cabiria" for Oct. 13 doesn't air in Canada. Instead we get "Guns for San Sebastian" at 2:00 a.m. Oh well... Other Canadian content for October is Alex Trebek on Friday nights...
  15. Happy Thanksgiving to all my Canuck friends on message board!!! And also to everybody else!!! You wouldn't know it's Turkey Day from TCM's Canadian schedule 'tho... Unless this scene from "Queen Christina" showing Grabo and Gilbert having drinks before diggin into the turkey and stuffing is included: Oh well... As we in Canada say on this special day - "Pass the beer can turkey, eh!"

    Thanksgiving In Canadaland

    Happy Turkey Day on Monday to my fellow Canucks (Le jour de l'Action de grâce in French Canada) and have a nice long weekend! Yes, Thanksgiving is Monday, October 13 this year in Canuckland: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thanksgiving_%28Canada%29 Canadian TCM movie line-up for the holiday Monday here: http://www.tcm.com/schedule/canada/index.html?tz=PST&sdate=2014-10-13
  17. Elise Crane Derby is attempting to raise a schitstorm about any potential layoffs/negative changes at TCM. She wants y'all to send letters supporting TCM. Read about it here: http://elisesramblings.blogspot.ca/2014/10/tcm-letter-writing-campaign.html And here for the Twitter campaign "#DontTouchTCM": https://twitter.com/search?f=realtime&q=%23DontTouchTCM&src=typd Apparently about 15% of Atlanta-based staff will be cut: https://willmckinley.wordpress.com/2014/10/07/as-turner-layoffs-loom-one-fan-says-donttouchtcm/ TCM programming boss Michael Wright is gone too: http://radiotvtalk.blog.ajc.com/2014/08/29/tbs-tnt-tcm-programming-chief-michael-wright-out/ TCM bigwig Scott McGee was interviewed on radio September 27 about the layoffs and said: “Everybody at TCM is very optimistic; our parent company recognizes that TCM is a very valuable jewel in the portfolio, if you will. So we’re all optimistic that things will stay relatively okay,” he said. “But to coin a phrase from William Goldman, nobody really knows anything.” The radio interview starts at about the 40 minute mark of the radio show (Show #3): http://www.aliciamayershow.com/show-archive/

    "Beat the Devil" on TCM??

    Anybody ever see "Beat the Devil" on TCM?? Watched it Sunday on a local TV station that runs old films that are in the public domain (they don't have to pay rights to anybody)... Spoof of film noirs starring Humphrey Bogart, Jennifer Jones, Gina Lollobrigida, Peter Lorre, Robert Morley, among others. Directed by John Huston with script by Huston and Truman Capote... Quality wasn't good on TV but film certainly was interesting, lots of humorous scenes... http://www.tcm.com/tcmdb/title/68277/Beat-the-Devil/ http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Beat_the_Devil_%281953_movie%29 TCM article here: http://www.tcm.com/tcmdb/title/68277/Beat-the-Devil/articles.html Just wondering if it's ever been aired on TCM??

    "Beat the Devil" on TCM??

    The Internet Archive has it to view in full online (and about as in good shape as I've seen it on CHCH): https://archive.org/details/BeatTheDevil1953 The TCM article by Bret Wood is a good summary of the flick: http://www.tcm.com/tcmdb/title/68277/Beat-the-Devil/articles.html Some of Wood's review is below: "At times the film seems more like a literary parlor game than an espionage thriller, with dialogue scripted so intricately that one dare not laugh for fear of missing the next turn of phrase to tumble from the actors' lips. The effectiveness of the film lies in the actors' deadpan demeanor. Rather than play the film as a conventional comedy, every line is delivered with utter seriousness, which only adds to the film's eclectic tone. Bogart was even more tight-lipped than usual, possibly due to an automobile accident he and Huston were involved in while being driven to a location in Ravello, Italy - an accident that badly cut Bogart's tongue and knocked out his bridge of front teeth. The devilish Huston couldn't stifle his laughter at the sight of the bloody-mouthed (but not seriously injured) Bogart, whom he remembered muttering in response, "John...you dirty, no-good thun-of-a-bith!"

    "Beat the Devil" on TCM??

    CHCH 11 in Hamilton airs many old flicks, mostly stuff now in the public domain. This week they're airing, for example, "Outpost in Morocco," "The Fabulous Dorseys," "One of Our Aircraft Is Missing," "Charade," and "Life With Father." And it's probably the 1963 version of "Charade" that's in the public domain (on Saturday afternoon on CHCH). Think all the other flicks airing this week (above) are in the public domain. Since I wrote the original post a few years ago, I've seen "Beat the Devil" on CHCH a few times... Just another source of old movies in this part of the Great White North, I guess... And public domain status probably means it doesn't matter if TCM is airing the films too, as far as film rights goes... Just FYI for fellow Canuckleheads...

    One can buy them from the TCM Shop: "To Be or Not to Be" (1942) - http://shop.tcm.com/detail.php?p=461976&SESSID=ac94716f6029b9e94569279d019bfe7e "Foreign Correspondent" (1940) - http://shop.tcm.com/detail.php?p=623346&SESSID=ac94716f6029b9e94569279d019bfe7e The public library in the city where I reside has both flicks on DVD's available to sign-out... You can watch the entire movie ["To Be or Not to Be" (1942)] online here: http://vimeo.com/66604761 "Foreign Correspondent" (1940) you can watch in full online here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mP6ooaju0cI Anyway, I guess it would be interesting to find out why TCM can't air those flicks above in Canada. Think Lee Tsiantis is still looking after film rights for TCM? Don't know his email addy but you can probably snail-mail him at TCM through: TCM Viewer Relations 1050 Techwood Drive NW Atlanta, GA 30318 or try TBS: Lee Tsiantis Corporate Legal Manager Turner Broadcasting System, Inc. 1 CNN Center Atlanta, GA 30303 United States P.S. I just do this service to provide Canucks with some advance notice... And I can understand why some Canucks complain - they feel they are paying a cable fee to subscribe to TCM and should get all the films on the U.S. schedule. Personally, I don't mind and understand why TCM makes changes. No complaints from moi...
