34 posts in this topic

Bravo, LP!! Another clever schedule with lots to love including:  75th Anniversary of 1944 films (what a year that was!) Oxymoronic Titles, Fortune Hunters and Bring the Whole Family. Doc Brown is an inspired traveling companion and I love your take on your "Dream Vacation" and your Desert Island films.  Amazing as always.

SansFin's Program Notes for Challenge #38
March 31, 2019 to April 6, 2019

Star of the Month: Peter O'Toole

Birthday Tributes:
Toshirô Mifune
Sir Alec Guinness, CH, CBE
Leslie Howard
Robert E. Sherwood
Roger Corman

Sunday: I believed it wise to begin with a day of angels in hopes of gaining their interest so that they might look favorably on the evening schedule. My choice for the Vacation-Destination Challenge was natural. Many people constantly inform me that I am going to Hell if I do not change my ways and I am a great believer that one should vacation in an area before moving there permanently. All of the movies from 8:00 PM to 6:00 AM are part of Challenge response as all have important representations of Hell.

Monday: Toshirô Mifune is one of my favorite actors and so I did need to honor his birthday. The first movie is one for which I have long campaigned for TCM to air. My choice of the TARDIS for the Transportation Challenge seemed natural as it does not limit a person's options in the manner of which conventional modes of transport create. The first two movies have appeared on TCM prior to this and the latter two are closely tied to the television program but did have theatrical releases. The Czech movie which follows them is quite enjoyable.

Tuesday: Sir Alec Guinness, CH, CBE is another of my favorite actors. He is a very dynamic actor in powerful dramas but I choose to present his lighter fare which is so very delightful. The Doctor is a natural selection for Companion Challenge after selecting his TARDIS as a vehicle. I believe his choices reflect his often outrageous sense of humor.

Wednesday: Leslie Howard is another my of favorite-of-all-time actors. I tried to show his wide range of talents without focusing on intense dramas. I doubt that many will relate well to my selections for Desert-Island Challenge because they are not widely available but they are all dear to my heart.

Thursday: I was amazed when I found a list of playwright and screenwriter Robert E. Sherwood's works. They are so wonderfully varied and of such unerring high quality. I believe that Peter O'Toole deserves to be Star of the Month because of his great body of work and wide range.

Friday: Many other directors have been honored on TCM but I feel that Roger Corman has been slighted in this respect. All of his movies satisfy what I consider the prime prerequisite for filmmaking: they truly entertain. The Friday Night Spotlight is anthologies as the muse is in a huff and refused to provide the inspiration necessary to create a wonderfully silly theme.

Saturday: The theme of the day came out of my wish to end the week with a blast. The Essentials and the remainder of the evening and night are of couples mismatched because of age and/or temperment. I selected TCM Underground and the movie following it in hopes some may be curious of them and seek them out. They are quite marvelous in differing ways and I believe any person will enjoy them.

I do apologize for not creating a humourous week-long theme as is usual for me. My only excuse is that I had to piece this together catch-as-catch-can in increments no longer than an hour at a time. I did not have the freedom of time to create overview of entire week before beginning.

I am very sorry that I have not had time to both work on an entry and to comment on the wonderful entries posted by others. I will amend this as quickly as possible but it may as yet be some time as I am having to post this entry prior to a proper polishing as my schedule has once again changed and it is likely I will not have more time to work on it. My apologies to all.

It's nice to see you back SansFin, and I'm happy you submitted a schedule! 

I'm so glad to see Toshirô Mifune is getting a day dedicated to him. What a fine actor. I just love him. And I agree about wishing TCM would show Love in a Teacup. I've never seen it. I laughed out loud when I read your choice of "hell" as a vacation destination. Your means of transportation and traveling companion are fun as well (although I might choose Pond as my companion :)). And finally, I'm happy to see Roger Corman represented. I know his films can be something of an acquired taste, but the man himself always comes across as a knowledgeable and well-spoken filmmaker/film-lover, and I too think TCM should take advantage of that resource while they still can.

Great job SansFin, thanks for participating!

Great job SansFin, thanks for participating!

I thank you for your kind words. 

My choice of vacation destination was influenced by Mark Twain's comment: "Heaven for the climate. Hell for society." I truly believe that the people in hell will be a more diverse and interesting group than those in heaven. 

I feel that Amy Pond would be an excellent third member of the party but I would distrust her operation of the TARDIS. It is also that she is able to absorb intense levels of zaniness but it seems to me that she is too level-headed to be a good source for it. Dr. River Song is better in both regards but I find in her streaks of morality and protectiveness which might limit the fun. The best of all would be Missy. That would be the most intense experience albeit the one with the least chance for a safe return.

Schedule for January 20-26, 2019

I congratulate you on an excellent schedule. I feel Eve Arden deserves such a showcase as being Star of the Month. I am sure that tagging along with Mame Dennis would be a wonderful experience!

LP’s Schedule for TCM Programming Challenge #38 “Vacation Time!”

 

I am awed at your talent and skill at always bringing us such wonderful schedules!

I see that we share a love for Sir Alec Guinness. I love your tribute to Bob Fosse. He served in so many ways in filmmaking. I am sorry to say that I fear Fox will never allow his: All That Jazz (1949) to air on another station because it is so close to their heart and purse strings. 

Your 75th Anniversary of 1944, Dysfunctional Family, Oxymoronic Titles and Still Good on the 100th Viewing themes are perfect!
