    TCM Premieres

    Yes, it's getting harder to find good punch-card operators these days 😉 Now that I know to check for gaps, I won't immediately assume that a title has been dropped from the schedule. Whatever the cause, it seems to be showing up in the daily, weekly, and monthly schedules consistently. Would be nice if they could get this fixed. Hopefully the on-screen cable guides are correct on the day of the show?

    Thanks Yancey. Maybe there's a chance we'll get to see some of the other "missing" films as well.

    TCM Premieres

    I was confused about the schedule last night. Instead of "replacing" Ebirah, Horror of the Deep with Son of Godzilla, there was actually just a gap in the schedule. - Previous schedule: Ghidorah, the Three-Headed Monster (1964) Invasion of Astro-Monster (1965) (P) Ebirah, Horror of the Deep (1966) Son of Godzilla (1967) (P) Destroy All Monsters (1969) Ghoulies (1985) - Last night's schedule: Ghidorah, the Three-Headed Monster (1964) Invasion of Astro-Monster (1965) <gap> Son of Godzilla (1967) (P) Destroy All Monsters (1969) Ghoulies (1985) Did anyone watch during the "gap" to see what was actually broadcast? (I wish TCM would list a TBA placeholder in the schedule so we can see where the replacements will go.)

    TCM Premieres

    A few other changes in the October premiere schedule: Oct 25 - Beyond the Valley of the Dolls (1970) removed - currently a gap in the schedule Oct 28 - the Paul Muni film Stranger on the Prowl (1953) removed - remaining films shifted earlier, Coma (1978) added at end of the day's programming as filler Oct 29 - the Julie Andrews film That's Life (1986) removed - currently a gap in the schedule I have removed Stranger on the Prowl from the list above. Will wait on the other two to see how the gaps are filled.

    TCM Premieres

    The scheduled premiere of Ebirah, Horror of the Deep (1966) on Friday October 11 has been replaced with Son of Godzilla (1967) (not a TCM premiere). I have removed Ebirah, Horror of the Deep from the list of premieres above.

    Early Now Playing guide

    The TCM At-A-Glance schedule for November is now available at: http://www.escapepress.com/tcmsched/tcm_overview.html - On this page, click on the At-A-Glance link for November to view the latest pdf file. - You can then use the Save command in your browser to make a local copy. (No longer using a DropBox public folder. Hopefully this will be easier to use.) - Information for September and October is also available for reference.
  7. I noticed that Assault on a Queen was another film that was not available for live streaming (and not included on WatchTCM either). In addition, during the broadcast the widescreen picture was letterboxed as well (a black border around all sides). Oh well...

    Thanks for the update on It Grows on Trees, that's disappointing. I edited the list of premieres above to remove it.

  10. I suspect JonasEB is referring to the image problems that I gave an example of in the thread discussing the premiere of the Virginia Bruce film There's That Woman Again: http://forums.tcm.com/topic/260596-virginia-bruce-summed-it-all-up-perfectly/?tab=comments#comment-2041540 Since then I've seen other examples including the premiere of That's My Boy broadcast on Sept. 13. The common factor seems to be these are recent TCM premieres and there must be some inferior source or bad preparation method for presentation on TCM. It's almost as if there's a 2nd scan of the movie where multiple frames are partially combined together. Things look mostly OK for still scenes but whenever the camera pans horizontally the background objects become distorted. Not all of the TCM premieres have had this issue - Blue Denim and High, Wide, and Handsome were recent premieres that were very good - so it seems to be on a case-by-case basis. But I don't mean to speak for another so I hope JonasEB will give further details of his issue. (In addition, this discussion is probably better suited for a different message thread, so excuse me for adding details here.)

    Karger Wrap-up confusion

    Thanks Yancey for pointing this out. I looked at WatchTCM for Young Mr. Lincoln and even there the wrap-up is incorrect. Another funny thing is that Dave Karger's sportcoat matches for the intro and the other wrap-up. I thought they would at least change the wardrobe for intros in a different month. 😉

    NBCUniversal Launching Its Own Streaming Service

    For the record, Seinfeld is going to be exclusive to Netflix: https://www.latimes.com/entertainment-arts/business/story/2019-09-16/netflix-acquires-the-global-streaming-rights-to-seinfeld We'll need a service to tell us which streaming service will have the shows we want to watch.

    TCM names new host for Silent Sundays

    I will miss the music from the previous opening and I very much liked the opening theme before that. Just a guess on my part but the current theme is much shorter, perhaps to give a bit more time for the host to use for a lengthier introduction. Seems to be somewhat like the example set by Eddie to go into more depth when discussing the background of the film. For that I guess we have to sacrifice.

    “The Late Show” promo inaccurate?

    Looks like the next time The Late Show is scheduled to be shown on TCM is during the afternoon on Sunday, November 24th (6:15 pm ET). Not sure if something got changed, but that is quite an early promo.

    Search function seems to be broken

    After some experimentation, I found a sequence of steps that works for me: 1. Go to the main TCM page: https://www.tcm.com (The search box on this page in the upper right corner does not work for me.) 2. There is a “Community” menu at the top of the TCM.com page - under “Community,” select “Message Boards” from the drop-down menu - this brings up the Message Boards page 3. Use the Search box at the top of the Message Boards page (not the lower search box) - move the mouse over the word “SEARCH” until the cursor changes into an I-beam - cursor will change when the mouse is over the letters “SEA” - click the mouse when the cursor changes - the word “SEARCH” will disappear, and you can now type in text - type the text you are searching for, and then press ‘return’ - the search should be executed, and results are displayed on a new page 4. In the new page with the results of the first search, the box at the top of the page will also work for additional searches. (The box next to the text that says “Sign Up For TCM Emails”.) - you can click in this box and type text for a new search - results will continue to be shown on this page 5. On this page you can also use the box that says “SEARCH AGAIN” - If you type text in this box, a drop-down menu will show suggestions (similar to an auto-complete) Although this sequence works for me, I’m not sure if other browsers / computers will have a similar experience. There may be other sequences that also work. At least the method described above seems to be reliable.
