    December 2018 Schedule is up

    I was sort of surprised at the implication that the 1994 version of Little Women will be making its TCM debut in December. Given how often some other literary adaptations from Columbia appear on TCM (A River Runs Through It, The Age of Innocence, The Remains of the Day, Sense and Sensibility), I would have thought it would have appeared sooner. It was also the final live-action work for veteran character actress Mary Wickes, who had a memorable cameo as Aunt March.

    To Those About to Die, We Salute You!

    Flashiest farewell: Roy Scheider in All That Jazz. While seemingly sedadated, he went out in his mind in a giant burst of musical -theatre showsmanship culminating with a song called "Bye-Bye Life" and getting to wish all the women in his life farwell before going to meet Jessica Lange's graceful angel of death.

    What Current Big Stars Will Be Forgotten?

    Many silent stars though would have had a challenging uphill climb for lasting recognition though. So many silent films were destroyed after the talkies came in, because many felt there was no value in preserving them, that nobody wanted a silent film anymore. And Fox, one of the main studios of the silent era, lost most of their silent films in a fire in the mid 1930s. Then you also had the extra sling of MGM 's sarcastic "Goofy Movies" short series which often, if not always, contained a deconstruction of a silent film with ludicrous dialogue. So, because of all that, I feel that many silent stars slipped into oblivion. Truthfully, the ones of that era most remembered today by the general public are mostly the big stars of that time (Lloyd, Pickford, Bow) or the ones who kept on working in the talkies (Chaplin, Keaton, Shearer, Davies, Garbo, Crawford, Colman, Cooper, Lillian Gish)

    Everybody remembers the shocking impact of Janet Leigh's passing in Psycho......

    How does one make it to 23 having never heard of Chaplin?

    I remember his son who became a good character actor in his old age in films like Moonstruck and Stanley and Iris. And the father's name was namedropped briefly in Victor/Victoria, so I knew that he was an opera singer.

    Favorite Robert Mitchum Movie

    A virtual tie between two films that show up both sides of Mitchum as the dastardly villain and as the upstanding hero: The Night of the Hunter and Heaven Knows Mr Allison.

    What Current Big Stars Will Be Forgotten?

    About current stars that might end up being forgotten, I have a hunch it will happen with many stars who are most famous for playing superheroes. With the exception of a few of them who were already established like Robert Downey Jr, Mark Ruffalo, and Scarlett Johansson, the superhero films are mainly the reason they are famous, and its probably true that audiences go to them more for the comic book connection then for who is actually starring in it.

    What Current Big Stars Will Be Forgotten?

    I think Goldie might hold on.....two of her 90s titles, Death Becomes her and The First Wives Club, have large cult followings today, and films like Shampoo, Cactus Flower, Private Benjamin, Overboard, and Foul Play are still fondly remembered.

    Grand Hotel is the Magnolia of 1932?

    Its an odd comparison really. Grand Hotel and Magnolia only share the similarities of several overlapping stories, an all-star cast, and many sad tales. (And also of being very fine films....but I digress) If anything, Grand Hotel was the very first all-star film and so every film afterward that would use that format would be in its debt. But it seems silly to compare an early 30s title to a late 90s one. It would have been better comparing Grand Hotel to Dinner at Eight and Magnolia to Grand Canyon and Short Cuts.

    Directors who revisit their own movies.

    There is also the matter of quasi-retakes. Howard Hawks directed both 1938's Bringing Up Baby and 1964's Man's Favorite Sport. Plotwise, they are not alike, no leopards or dinosaur bones appeared in the later film. But in terms of the dynamics of the two main characters (bumbing, socially awkward man, brash, life-loving, eccentric woman) they feel almost like they are connected. And as for people remaking their own outright, Sidney Franklin did The Barretts of Wimpole Street twice. Both versions were good, but the Norma Shearer version was better.

    How does one make it to 23 having never heard of Chaplin?

    I'd tack a few extra years on top of that. Looking back on it all, after viewing a lot of 1990s films, it all began to change after 1993. That is not to say that there weren't special effects heavy films in the early 90s (there most definitely were, and Terminator II comes immediately to mind) or that the latter half of the 90s were bad film years (they were actually very good years), but the majority of Hollywood films were still done the traditional way with plots and casts and few visual effects. Its one reason I'm so fond of early 90s films. Their craftsmanship is endearing today. (I'd also argue that the 1990s were also the last decade of the old Hollywood tradition of almost always having full-blown emotional openness.....quite a few films from the 2000s on seem rather aloof, impersonal, sterile, and chilly to me)

    How does one make it to 23 having never heard of Chaplin?

    As it so happens, I am 23 years old. I don't recall how old I was when I first heard of Chaplin, but it was long before I actually saw him on screen when I was 16 (The Great Dictator). I long knew who he was. Is it surprising that some do not know who he is? No, but given how much Modern Times in particular means to me, it is deeply depressing. I think the issue with not as many people my age being familiar with famous stars of the past is because of this giant bubble of pop culture. Aside from TCM itself and FilmStruck on the internet, there aren't many direct ways to see classic films anymore. Libraries may or may not have classic films. Streaming services outside of FilmStruck aren't any help, aside from some public domain ones on Amazon Prime, its very rare to find one before the 1980s... and even the ones from the 1980s and 1990s are few and far between. HBO and similar premium channels rarely have films from before 1990. Websites are not much help because they always push the newest films (and even upcoming ones) first. So, for someone young to get interested in classic films, they either must receive TCM or they must learn to dig deeper than the surface level. And the surface level is unfortunately very flashy and attention-grabbing, because it seems as though everybody in my age bracket wants to stay current and up-to-date. Staying up-to-date is not very important to me. I generally see many of the praised films of current years a few months after they are released on DVD, or some others if they are of interest, but my heart remains with films that were released years ago. This can mean anything from the turn of the century through the 1990s, but especially classics. The classic era films were glorious, and never again will we see stars the equal of say Clark Gable and Spencer Tracy or Bette Davis and Ginger Rogers. They were some of the greatest ever to hit the silver screen. And filmmaking was an art back then. I miss those days.

    How does one make it to 23 having never heard of Chaplin?

    No offense but your story reminds me of that one vignette in 1987's Radio Days, where a man breaks the news about Pearl Harbor to a whole radio studio on December 7, 1941, and everyone is mourning greatly aside from the bewildered character played by Mia Farrow who plainly asks "Who is Pearl Harbour?" thinking the famous port was an actual person.

    The FilmStruck Thread

    i don't know if there has been a thread for this before, but since Warner Archive decided to fold their streaming service into the TCM/Criterion run FilmStruck, I thought that now would be a good time to start a thread on some of the offerings that are being added. New arrivals (which last through late August- Early September) include: the entire Thin Man series Films directed by G.W. Pabst (Secrets of a Soul, The loves of Jeanne Nay, Pandora's Box, Diary of a Lost Girl, Westfront 1918, The Threepenny Opera, Kameradschaft) The Astaire/Rogers films (Flying Down to Rio, The Gay Divorcee, Roberta, Top Hat, Swing Time, Follow the Fleet, Shall We Dance, Carefree, The Story of Vernon and Irene Castle, and The Barkleys of Broadway) Films directed by Fred Zinnemann (Redes, Kid Glove Killer, Eyes in the Night, The Seventh Cross, The Search, Act of Violence, From Here to Eternity, The Nun's Story, The Sundowners, Behold a Pale Horse, A Man for All Seasons) Bette Davis films (Hell's House, The Cabin in the Cotton, Three on a Match, 20,000 years in Sing Sing, Of Human Bondage, The Petrifed Forest, Marked Woman, Jezebel, Dark Victory, The Old Maid, The Private Lives of Elizabeth and Essex, All This and Heaven Too, The Great Lie, The Little Foxes, The man Who Came to Dinner, Now Voyager, Watch on the Rhine, Mr. Skeffington, The Corn in Green, Another Man's Poison, What Ever Happened to Baby Jane, Dead Ringer, Lo Scopone Scientifico) and films featuring Peter Falk (Wind Across the Everglades, Robin and the Seven Hoods, The Great Race, Penelope, Machine Gun McCain, A Woman Under the Influence, Mikey and Nicky, the In-Laws, All the Marbles, Wings of the Desire, The Player (where I guess he had a walk-on cameo))

    Do You Watch TCM Underground Often?

    As far as I know, I've only seen one film that ever aired on Underground and it wasn't on TCM, it was on a DVD. That film was Martin Scorsese's Kafkaesque dark comedy After Hours from 1985. It was a very offbeat film with formidably flaky and eccentric supporting turns from Teri Garr, Catherine O'Hara, Roseanna Arquette, and Linda Fiorentino. There was one time I took a peek at Underground, but the film seemed so unhinged from the first few minutes that I turned it off. That film was Scenes from the Class Struggle in Beverly Hills.

    Burt Reynolds (1936-2018)

    Burt Reynolds, one of the top box-office stars of the 1970s, has died at the age of 82. His hits included Deliverance, Smokey and the Bandit, Hooper, and Starting Over. In addition, he was Oscar nominated for Boogie Nights in 1997. His final film, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, a film directed by Quentin Tarantino about the mass hysteria following the Manson killings in 1969, will be released next summer. https://www.hollywoodreporter.com/news/burt-reynolds-dead-deliverance-boogie-nights-star-was-82-831093?utm_source=twitter&utm_source=t.co&utm_medium=referral

    November 2018 schedule is up

    I see where the spotlight for the month is on the art of casting. Was very surprised to see 1990's Men Don't Leave as part of that spotlight. It is extremely well cast, and a fine film, but I thought that many didn't know it existed.

    TCM now showing 70s, 80s, and 90s movies

    Actually, TCM has been showing 70s and 80s films since the very beginning in 1994. Rich and Famous (1981) and Fat City (1972) aired within the first two weeks of the channel's founding. I am not certain as to when 90s films started being shown on TCM, but I would throw out a guess and probably say the first 90s film aired in either the late90s or early 00s.

    Changes Coming for the Academy Awards

    https://www.hollywoodreporter.com/race/academy-plans-three-hour-oscars-telecast-adds-popular-film-category-1133138 It all reeks of desperation. The popular film category is a tacky idea meant to lure in viewers and also to stop the glut of "The Oscars never nominate box office hits!" rants that appear every year. To me at least, many of the popular $100-million-and-up films are not very intriguing, give or take a few every year. And the idea of moving some if the tech categories to commercial breaktimes seems unfeeling, unceremonious, and disrespectful.
