  2. "Mad About Musicals" course

    Just June, according to the website. No info on who will be hosting the films on TCM, but I'd bet it'll be Michael Feinstein; he's a friend of the network and seems like the perfect host for a series like this.
  3. Harvey J. Kaye

    Harvey J. Kaye, noted author and professor of democracy and justice studies at the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay, will join Ben Mankiewicz as a guest programmer on May 21. The theme that night is 'The Four Freedoms', which not coincidentally is also the name of Kaye's latest book. Screening that night are three features and two shorts -- THE GRAPES OF WRATH (1940, freedom from want), CASABLANCA (1942, freedom to worship God in his own way), THE CUMMINGTON STORY and THE HOUSE I LIVE IN (both 1945, freedom from fear) and DEADLINE USA (1952, freedrom of expression).
  4. Michael Douglas on Live TCM slurring his words?

    The actual interviews at the festival run roughly two hours, but for broadcast on TCM they are edited down to about 65 minutes.
  5. Jane Powell

    89-year-old Jane Powell, pictured above with Robert Osborne in 2011, joins Ben Mankiewicz on TCM next Tuesday (April 10). Powell handpicked four of her films her co-hosting gig. Powell, incidentally has been a friend to TCM since day one. She was there with Osborne and Ted Turner when TCM launched on April 14, 1994. TWO WEEKS WITH LOVE (1955) A DATE WITH JUDY (1948) HIT THE DECK (1955) NANCY GOES TO RIO (1950)
  6. 2018 The Essentials

    I could be mistaken, but I don't think Essentials will be back this year. THE CAREY TREATMENT and other titles airing in the 8:00 PM Saturday night slot just don't seem like they would fit as 'essentials', at least in the way TCM has historically defined the term.
  7. NEW HOSTS DAVE KARGER AND ALICIA MALONE...

    No, it's just that Ben Mankiewicz does a lot of other stuff on the side, beside his hosting for TCM. He is also a regular contributor to the YouTube channel The Young Turks, hosting TYT Sports and the What the Flick!? movie review show. And unlike Robert Osborne, who was 62 when TCM launched and had no children, Ben Mankiewicz has a young family in Los Angeles. As it is, he already commutes to Atlanta to record TCM segments once every three weeks. Asking much more of him would seem unreasonable. For Robert Osborne, seems fair to say that movies were pretty much his life. With Ben Mankiewicz, talking about movies is certainly something he is passionate about, but he is first and foremost a broadcaster, whereas Osborne was always considered a film historian. Important distinction, I think. Mankiewicz, it seems, wants the freedom to do other things in addition to his TCM hosting duties.

  12. News: TCM Hosts

    TCM announced today that they are expanding the channel's roster of permanent hosts, one year since the death of longtime host Robert Osborne. Joining Ben Mankiewicz, who remains the 'face' of the network, will be Dave Karger and Alicia Malone. Karger will be a familiar face to most TCM viewers, having guest hosted the channel several times in the last two years; he also inherits from Osborne the unofficial position of TCM's resident Oscar historian, having specialized in his coverage of the film industry's award season for twenty years. Alicia Malone is a longtime film enthusiast and TV presenter, from Australia originally; she has been the primary host of TCM's streaming service FilmStruck since the service launched in 2016. In other developments, TCM confirmed that Tiffany Vazquez has been removed from her role hosting on Saturday afternoons, but will remain involved with TCM, hosting events at the film festival and online presentations for TCM Backlot and TCM's social media sites.
  13. Death Takes No Holiday -- The Obituary Thread

    Lewis Gilbert, who directed some of the most successful British films of the 1960s and 1970s, has died. He was 97. Credits include the WWII drama CARVE HER NAME WITH PRIDE (1958), the Michael Caine hits ALFIE (1966) and EDUCATING RITA (1983) and three James Bond films -- YOU ONLY LIVE TWICE (1967), THE SPY WHO LOVED ME (1977) and MOONRAKER (1983).

  14. Tiffany and new male host, feb 2018

    The guest host is Dave Karger, of NBC's Today Show. He's been on TCM as a guest host several times in the last couple of years, filling in for both the late Robert Osborne and, this month, for Ben Mankiewicz on several weeknights.
  15. William Holden as SOTM April 2018

    Actually, Ben Mankiewicz said that he and Powers would be introducing 15 Holden films together. Looking at the schedule, my guess is they'll be introducing the first three films on the lineup each night of the festival.
