TopBilled's Program Notes for Schedule for 21st of July, 2019 to 28th of July, 2019

Sunday

I wanted the cooking-related films to be wide-ranging, covering as many different decades as possible. BURNT OFFERINGS was added in humorously. I also considered HELL'S KITCHEN (1939). I sprinkled in a bunch of Pete Smith Specialties on cooking, since these don't air enough. I think the result is quite delicious.

CHRISTMAS IN CONNECTICUT leads off the primetime theme, and there's a lot of cooking in it.

Monday

I'm a fan of Bryan Forbes. It was tough to limit it to just three of his films, so I could also honor Terence Stamp.

Re: the New Leaf challenge...I wanted ones that all had something in common (plastic surgery) and how the change was inside as well as outside. When you go through a major change in life, you are usually affected psychologically AND physically.

My TCM import is the original version of A WOMAN'S FACE.

Tuesday

Who doesn't love Gloria DeHaven? I wanted films where she had significant roles, but also where we could see her career evolve in the 40s and early 50s.

The Same Name Game. Some of those films have lead actors with the same first name, and some have lead actors with the same last name. For example, in BORN TO BE BAD, there are two Joans (Fontaine & Leslie).

Wednesday

I loved the daytime theme. I wanted films where the gals were up in the air, as a tribute to Amelia Earhart on her birthday. The gals didn't have to be aviators, they could be airline attendants or in Shirley Temple's case, just a passenger! The Loretta Young picture is a good morale booster and should be better known.

For my New Programming Feature, I wanted to focus on excellent TV movies. Ideally each week would showcase titles with a well known star. I went with Liz Montgomery, since her work is so good and needs to be seen. I picked ones where she played villains-- she was on a mission to shed the Bewitched image and overcome typecasting. She succeeded. The one where she costars with Kirk Douglas deserves a TCM airing. It's fantastic.

I followed this up with two films her father made at MGM. Linking a TV star with an earlier generation Hollywood movie star.

Thursday

Walter Brennan made films in all genres. I wanted my choices to reflect that. 

My Star of the Month is Alexis Colby, I mean Joan Collins. Since this is the last week in July, we'd be going over films she made in the 70s, before Dynasty. Earlier weeks would cover the hit films she did in the 50s and 60s. 

Friday

Aldous Huxley wrote a few screenplays for MGM. For Stanley Kubrick's birthday, I wanted to include at least one premiere.

My Friday Night Spotlight is on Shakespearean Adaptations. Earlier weeks in July would feature Shakespearean-themed films by Laurence Olivier, Orson Welles and Franco Zefferelli. The last week of July is Kenneth Branagh's turn. This allowed me to get some classics from the late 20th century and early 21st Century on to the schedule.

Saturday

Each daytime movie features two people who were married after appearing in said film together. See if you can guess who they are, for each one of the titles I selected.

Re: Outside the Box. I wanted my idea to work for Primetime, Noir Alley AND for TCM Underground. So it just continues from primetime into the early morning hours.

As you can see, I had 15 premieres. For these selections, I wanted films that came from Universal or Paramount, and films made by independent production companies.

I wanted a week less ordinary. So with that in mind, and with the recent fears that only WB owned titles will be shown on TCM in the future, I drafted this schedule without a single WB/Turner library title on it! Also, I wanted to put in as many premieres as possible, so I used every single slot I could for a premiere, thus there are 29 on the schedule.

I wanted to include all the special things: Disney vault with an accent on well crafted 60s titles, Fox noirs for Noir Alley, a newly minted SOTM who is almost chameleon like in her range and her abilty to steal scenes, new discoveries for Imports and Silent Sunday, focuses on several delightful actresses, a colorful GP with a love for Pre-theCodes and films that thrive on eccentricity, some strong coming of age films,  look at Hollywood dramas, etc.

The guiding idea behind this schedule is to get as many films from theyshootpictures.com top 1000 movies that have not appeared on TCM to appear on the schedule.  Of the 26 premieres, only one, the 1964 The Killers appear on the theyshootpictures.com top 500 movies.  (You can find a list of such movies on page three of this thread:  http://forums.tcm.com/topic/186211-movies-you-almost-despair-of-seeing-on-tcm/?page=3)  Many of these movies appeared in the Sight and Sound top 250 films poll of 2012.  The reason The Killers is an exception is to fit the celebration of birthday boy Ernest Hemingway.  The last movie, The Spanish Earth, happily blends into three innovative documentaries, which blends into a Luis Bunuel premiere, and then a silent/foreign night with three Soviet films.  This helps the theme of revolution (Bastille Day being the week before.)
 
Monday starts with two themes that introduce two more premieres, suspicious husbands and wayward wives, and unworthy men and the women who love them.  Monday night introduces the first TCM challenge, characters turning over a new leaf.  Here, five characters face an identity crisis.  They certainly turn over a new leaf, even if they may end up dead or crazy.  Tuesday spends the day discussing the amusing side of crime, before introducing the monthly spotlight, Hollywood stars before they were Hollywood stars.
 
Wednesday looks at birthday boys Delmer Daves and Ermanno Olmi.  For Daves we have two films he helped write, then two he helped direct.  Then it's star of the month Donald Sutherland, whose birthday was on the 17th.  Since Thursday marks the 110th anniversary of Louis Bleriot's flight across the English Channel, it starts off with movies celebrating the early history of flight, then has two in honor of birthday boy Woody Strode.  Then we have the second TCM programming challenge.  What if Leo McCarey directed a major Technicolor musical?  What if Birth of a Nation had a black director?  What if Robert Bresson decided to hire a professional actress?  What if Ernst Lubitsch directed Cary Grant? 
 
All of Friday celebrates birthday boy Stanley Kubrick.  Then much of Saturday is devoted to the theme of unhappy families in all their varieties, climaxing with the TCM premiere of The Tree of Life in what was, and apparently will be, the Essentials spot.  Given that I have to premiere another noir, and my last TCM programming challenge has a very specific film in mind, late Saturday night is devoted to mysteries.

A few notes on my schedule for Challenge #40:

Hedda Hopper and Louella Parsons didn’t just write about films; they actually appeared in some and Sunday AM showcases just a few of these.  Next, we have “Backlot Battles,” those films which are more famous for the drama that went on behind the scenes than what appeared on screen. In primetime, it’s “Mankiewicz on Mankiewicz,” 3 films (including 2 TCM Premieres) hosted by Ben Mankiewicz which were written by his grandfather, legendary screenwriter Herman Mankiewicz. Sunday winds up with a trio of fine Australian films for your viewing pleasure. 

Believe it or not, 2020 marks the 100th Anniversary of the invention of the rotary dial telephone so Monday morning features 3 films where phones play a key role.  Monday afternoon we have a “Plethora of Powells,” including: Dick, Bill, Jane, Michael and Eleanor. Monday primetime presents my suggested TCM Programming Feature  --  “The Face Is Familiar” which brings some much-needed attention to those workhorse character actors who you see all the time, but don’t quite recall their names. Monday shines the spotlight on a favorite of mine, Paul Picerni, who gave over 200 memorable performances on film and TV. Tuesday daytime is all about the pain of home renovation (I’m sure we can all relate!) followed by a birthday salute to Robert Preston.  In primetime, we feature films that were shot at one of the most beloved and famous film locations in Los Angeles  --  The Bradbury Building.  1950’s Redheads and Sinclair Lewis are featured on Wednesday daytime and, in primetime, it’s All About Aline MacMahon, my SOTM.  I have so long admired this actress and I am thrilled to finally put her in the SOTM spotlight.

Thursday begins with my “New Leaf” Challenge which is the sudden acquisition of lots and lots of money and how it changes lives. Later that day, in honor of Challenge #40, we showcase the 1940 film debuts of 4 actors who went on to have stellar careers.  In Primetime, my “Thinking Outside the Box” Challenge suggests that Ann Sothern, mostly known for her comic roles (Think:  “Maisie”) would have made an amazing leading actress in film noirs. Friday we have the films of the participants in an interesting Hollywood Marriage Go Round  -- Lana Turner who married Lex Barker who married Arlene Dahl who married Fernando Lamas who married Esther Williams.  Talk about your six degrees of separation! Friday afternoon is all about being Brainwashed followed by a TCM Spotlight on those clever but devious folks everybody loves to watch  --  Con Artists.  Friday night concludes with TCM Underground:  Hounds From Hell.  No Lassies or Rin Tin Tins here.

The Hollywood Cricket Club, founded by C. Aubrey Smith (a famous “cricketeer”) was legendary in the 1930’s and if you were a British actor working in Hollywood, membership was virtually mandatory. Saturday mornings’ films feature some of the more lauded members of the Cricket Club including Boris Karloff, David Niven, H. B. Warner and Ronald Coleman.  Then, birthday salutes take over as two very talented guys, Ian Hunter and Tay Garnett, share the day.  My Noir Alley selection is a neo noir from 1987, “Black Widow,” starring Debra Winger and Theresa Russell.  I hope Eddie shows it one of these days soon.  Finally, to conclude the week we have 2 films which are Black (But Not Noir!)

Okay, I will go first. My vote goes to Lonesome Polecat.

Of course, I agree, all the schedules are great. I respect the effort it takes to be so creative.

In looking at LP's schedule, when posted, I kept seeing movies I'd love to watch.

Congratulations to SpeedRacer5 for facilitating #40.

Good Luck To Everyone!!!

I love all the schedules, but I'm casting my ballot for CinemaInternational -- not just because of my love for Disney Vault programming, or my desire for an entire day of premieres, but I really admire an entire schedule without a single Turner Library film! What an achievement! It hurts my brain just to think about it.

Lots of great ideas in these schedules!  Hard to believe this is Challenge #40!

TopBilled:  Loved "Same Name Game," "Classic TV Movies" as a new programming feature, Co-stars who were later married, and Joan Crawford as your TCM Underground star.

CinemaInternational:  Eve Arden as a dramatic lead is such a great idea  --  she can do anything in my book, loved the 60's Flashback segment, Gene Tierney and Saturday Premieres. 

Skimpole:  So much to like here!  Suspicious husbands, compromised wives, Crime May Not Pay But . . . Before They Were Hollywood Stars and your "What If" segment.

LP:  Marsha Hunt as your SOTM is perfect, also liked "Birds Trained by Ray Berwick," Counting Down with Patric Knowles, the TCM Location Tour and Hypochondriacs & Misdiagnoses.  You always do such a great job.

Congrats to everyone on their unending creativity.  Still deciding which schedule to pick (hard choices!)

I'm literally about to leave town and am not taking my laptop with me. I'd better vote right now. The thread will be closed before I get back. I loved all the schedules, but I'm voting for Skimpole. I haven't time for elaboration on my reasons. It was just my favorite schedule. Thanks to everyone who took the time and effort to participate.

Realized yesterday that in the haste of making my schedule, I put in a cast member on one title who wasn't even in the film. Oops. :(

Not to worry.  We've all done it more than once!

Well done, guys! First off, kudos to Speedracer5 for hosting yet another fantastic Challenge. I only regret not being able to participate this go 'round. It's always such a fun time. As for the schedules, all five are outstanding, and deserve a lot of praise!

TopBilled: I like your “costars were later married” block, and love the idea of Alfred Hitchcock directing Joan Crawford films (especially Sudden Fear)

CinemaInternational: A full day of premieres is such a fine idea for a new programming feature. Eve Arden as a dramatic lead is also a great choice. And I love all the Hayley Mills you scheduled (including The Moon-Spinners, which actually does get a premiere on the 25th this month, yay!).

LonesomePolecat: “Counting down with Patric Knowles” is so clever. Love it! The "TCM Locations Tour" is a wonderful idea as well. I'm also particularly fond of your Elmer Bernstein salute, “Sheesh, You're Not Sick!”, and “Musical Corset Scenes”, haha!

Skimpole: I really like both your “Suspicious Husbands, Compromised Wives” and “Unworthy Men and the Women Who Love Them” blocks, as well as the “unhappy families” day. Donald Sutherland is a nice choice for SOTM, also.

Lydecker: Lots to love here too! I really like “A Plethora of Powells”, “Hollywood Marriage-Go-Round”, “Redheads”, “Hedda and Louella”, and your “The Face is Familiar” feature. And I absolutely agree with you on having Aline MacMahon as SOTM!

 

Again, congrats to all of you for creating such excellent schedules! Thanks for all the hard work. It's so difficult to choose just one. But, with that being said, CinemaInternational won me over with all the Hayley Mills, so he gets my vote this time!

Thank you all so much for this! This is my first time winning one of these, and I admit I am a bit psyched. I already have some plans for a new challenge, so if you want me to, I could get it up very very quickly (read as in the very near future) and have it open for say a month to 6 weeks or so.
