    TCM Flix to Groove To--Week of Mar 12th!!

    I had TCM on in another room while I worked, and walked in on the last 20 minutes of Krylya, which grabbed me immediately. Now I wish I'd seen it from the beginning. I hope TCM repeats their Imports later this year; if so, I will definitely arrange my schedule so I can see this movie from the beginning (including RO's intro).
  2. The Searchers, Shane, Days of Heaven and The Black Stallion. Also, although the movie itself was awful (imho), the Blue Lagoon (1980 version) had such stunning cinematography that I endured the whole movie, just to see the beautiful images.

    Unknown movie

    Could it be The Thief of Bagdad (1940)? I know the Sultan in that movie loved mechanical toys and had them all through his palace. I don't remember a train, but he had so many toys that a train could easily have been included.

    Movies For Camp

    You could also use the same genres, but with even earlier films. For westerns, instead of Red River and the Searchers (both pretty dark for kids) I suggest Shane and the 1939 Stagecoach. For costume adventure, I suggest the 1938 Adventures of Robin Hood, and for comedy/adventure, The Court Jester. Other adventure movies I think boys would enjoy are Around the World in 80 Days and The Greatest Show on Earth. I, too, recommend North by Northwest and the Swiss Family Robinson. And for some more modern suggestions, consider Jeremiah Johnson, Dances With Wolves and My Dog Skip (although that one's so new the kids may have seen it already). Good luck!

    black film stars

    Since they hand out the Oscars at the end of February, why not start the 31 days of Oscar on the day the Oscars are broadcast? All of February up until then could celebrate Black History. The month-long Oscar celebration could begin late in February and run through late March. If the programmers wanted to celebrate Oscar until the end of March, I wouldn't complain about 33-, 35- or 37 days of Oscar.

    "Back By Popular Demand" - Please?

    Has TCM ever shown Anastasia? I would love to see it again; it's been many years since I saw it.
  7. I vote for Miklos Rozsa and Max Steiner. And don't forget Dimitri Tiomkin. For songwriters, I'd add Cole Porter.

  9. Timing is everything, and this challenge came at a bad time for me (I have a big deadline due March 9), so I was just going to skip it and not participate. But who could pass up such a delicious challenge as revising the Oscars? So here's a hastily put together schedule. I haven't had time to look at anyone else's schedule, and I won't be back on the boards until around March 9, but good luck to all.

    What's this movie?

    This is a wonderful short - in fact, it won the Oscar in 1946 for Best Short.

    I am really enjoying this thread, and have found more than one movie which I am going to request that TCM show in future. Thank you for this thread!

    I did NOT grow up with movies. I was born in 1946, right at the start of the baby boomers, but my parents didn't care about movies, so we never watched them, in theaters or on TV (occasionally as a teenager I went with friends). By the time I left for college in 1963 I had probably seen less than ten movies in my life. In college I was blessed with a great roommate, who knew and loved old movies, and who also had a TV for our room. She introduced me to old movies, especially Fred and Ginger. We only had access to a couple of TV channels, though, so our movie choice was limited. (We saw THE LONG, HOT SUMMER so many times that we memorized long chunks of dialogue and would quote them as the movie was playing.) Our college also provided a free movie once a week for the students, and had a great programmer, also a student. His name was Jim Schertzer, and I have often wondered what happened to him. He was so knowledgeable about movies, and because of him I saw great movies from the 50s and early 60s for the first time (on a big screen, too), including NORTH BY NORTHWEST and WAR OF THE WORLDS, and I was also introduced to classic foreign cinema, such as LA STRADA and BLACK ORPHEUS. I hope he was able to use his knowledge of film later in life. At the time, being so new to movies, I didn't realize what a treasure trove he was giving to the students every week. After college I married a man who cared nothing for movies, so my interest was dormant for over a decade, until I was on my own again. In the early 80s in Norfolk, VA, was a great old movie theater called the NARO. It rescued itself from bowling-alley-theater conversion by showing interesting double features of classic and second-run features, such as CASABLANCA teamed with PLAY IT AGAIN, SAM. I saw many a great double feature at that theater, and discovered many more classic movies. Best of all, though, was when old AMC and later TCM came along. With my trusty VCR, I could revel in old movies while still livin' my life. I am really grateful for the classics of the 30s through the 50s, and I'm glad they're still available on TCM. May that always be the case!

    Thanks, LB - that's the only reason I knew the answer - I heard his wraparound. I'm not really knowledgeable about movie trivia - open thread
