    Mary Astor as SOTM March 2014

    >PARADISE FOR THREE is airing later this morning. It is sometimes known by its alternate title, ROMANCE FOR THREE. According to IMDb, ROMANCE FOR THREE is the U.K. title, It was also the on-screen title as aired on TCM today, accompanied by U.S.A. copyright information.

    Need help find the name of a movie

    Could it be Li'l Abner, which ran on TCM in 2009, or perhaps Kissin' Cousins, which pops up again on March 30 and most likely almost monthly after that.

    JUNE SCHEDULE IS UP

    Two casualties of the sailing of the Good Ship Lollipop in March resurface on June 1-2: Cossacks (1928) Nine Days of One Year (1964) A third casualty, And Then There Were None (1945), is still missing, even with a full evening of Rene Clair on June 18. Perhaps because, according to TCMDb, Ren? Clair and Rene Clair are two different people. Pretty Maids All in a Row is listed as starting 10 minutes before the end of the previous feature. Hopefully, the schedule will be realigned, rather than the Maids. Charley's Aunt (1941), preempted due to rights issues during Mr. Osborne's introduction on May 19, 2012, for an awful print of the 1930 Charlie Ruggles version, is listed on June 28 during an evening of Jack Benny.

    YOU'RE A BIG BOY NOW

    >About the independent record stores: there was one called The Record Hunter; it carried nothing but classical records. I wonder how long it lasted? Until 1992. I was in a couple of record stores earlier this week. Picked up a copy of the sound track for You're a Big Boy Now. They still smell like the sixties -- the stores and the records.

    Gigot

    From the archives: >Jackie Gleason was notoriously difficult to work with on the set of a motion picture. He amazed his fellow actors and co-workers on Gigot with his openness. Now during the downtime he mingled with the cast and crew, which was something he rarely ever did. He even gave in when director Gene Kelly imposed a strict exercise regimen on the star. Kelly had Gleason running up and down a flight of stairs to get him into better physical shape. But rather than refusing, Gleason responded by putting up a sign in his dressing room that stated "Gene Kelly is always right." Other directors who had worked with Gleason couldn't believe it. Some friends found a reason for Gleason?s good mood. He had a starring role in which he didn?t have to remember any lines. -- For American Movie Classics, I?m John Burke. (In front of a very empty main theater at Radio City Music Hall, c. 1999)

    Clearly I've Missed Something

    Just noticed a new twentieth anniversary bumper featuring a spectacularly unproductive conversation between Keir Dullea and Douglas Rain, with a tag line reading: Twenty Years of ? Computer Problems Thanks for sharing.

    Temple Tribute Cancels THE COSSACKS

    I find this thread to be entirely informative, and not at all ungrateful bellyaching. Thanks for posting. We all expected that there would be a Shirley Temple tribute, and that most likely it would happen after he thirty-first day of Oscar. Technology exists for broadcasting in a picture-in-picture format; many commercial channels do this with closing credits. Thankfully, TCM is staying off that particular bandwagon. Ergo, the Cossacks are ergone, at least for a while. Looking through my movie watching journal, I see that Beyond a Reasonable Doubt (1956) was pre-empted for a Ricardo Montalban tribute in January 2009. I did not notice it on TCM's schedule again until October 2012, at which time it went unrecorded due to operator error. (The operator in question is your humble narrator.) It finally made it onto my hard drive in August 2013, where it sits unwatched, in the middle of a lengthy queue of somewhat interesting things I have recorded from TCM. Would a hobby be rewarding if there were no challenges? Happy landings on a chocolate bar.

    Totally Tooned In

    The series was curated by ?good friend of ours? Jerry Beck, who also put together this handy episode guide: http://www.cartoonresearch.com/tooned1.html It contains the complete run of theatrical Magoos. Mr. Beck says they are 52 in number, while http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Mr._Magoo_cartoons shows 54. My hard drive contains 53, all of which are on Mr. Beck's list, and the one titled Bathtub-Horn appears nowhere on the Internet other than on the Wikipedia list. There is some overlap with the Jolly Frolics DVD set that TCM put their name on a few years ago. Some of the shorts are edited for time on Totally Tooned In, and all of them have credits displaced to the end of the half-hour. The series tends to disappear and reappear from the Antenna schedule, and they don?t always pick up where they left off. So little classic animation is being broadcast anywhere these days, so go, fill your hard drive, and be glad.

    Help identifying this comedy short

    A scene matching your description appears in http://www.tcm.com/tcmdb/title/400374/Have-You-Ever-Wondered-/ http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0039450/ The excerpted scene also appears, uncredited, in That?s Entertainment, Part 2. It stars Dave O?Brien as the person of scalp, written by David Barclay, directed by David Barclay, with explanatory remarks by a Smith named Pete. (All the Daves are the same guy.) It shows up on TCM from time to time, check the schedule.

    Looking forward: January 2014 on TCM

    The only notes I took of the potential January 7 schedule were The Heckler, 20 minutes, between 8:44 and 9:30am Disorder in the Court, 16 minutes, between 7:17 and 8:00pm It appears that there has been considerable rearranging of the features for that day, so there are no longer any sufficient gaps for these shorts. It seemed particularly unlikely for a Columbia Stooges short to appear on TCM, as they are still in heavy rotation on AMC, IFC, and Antenna TV. In fact, Disorder in the Court is scheduled to run on AMC today at 9:35am ET. Enjoy the commercials, the popups, and the rest of the screen crud. Thanks for trying.
