*Capuchin's Programming Notes --*

 

I feel that Nov, 2007 was one of the best months on TCM because it was filled with series (Torchy Blaine, Philo Vance, etc.). Since it's been done, by itself it's not a theme worthy of the challenge, so I put a twist to it -- one day of a series and the next day movies made by stars of the television incarnation of that series.

 

Having the stars be a theme let me do some mildly wild things, like having Bride of the Gorilla and Touch of Evil or The Old Dark House and Breakfast at Tiffany's on the same day (I really, really like being perverse).

 

Silent Sunday's Siegfried's Death is special because it's Fritz Lang before Metropolis.

 

Victor Sjostrom is vastly underrated. I wanted to show one with him as an actor and one as director, but the times didn't fit to show him at his best, so here he's an actor and on Thursday morning he's a director (He Who Gets Slapped). (I know I'm technically misspelling his name and the titles of his movies, but I'm not sure that using extended characters isn't part of the old problem of challenge pages not loading properly, so I erred on the side of caution.)

 

Monday night's theme came about because in fiddling with the database, I wound up with a page that had both The Trouble with Harry and Diabolique. I felt it was fated that I figure out how to show them together.

 

My first food night -- I'm not a big fan of modern movies. Anything made after 1960 usually leaves me cold. This night has five exceptions to that rule. None of them pay attention to the government's food pyramid or recommended daily allowances; they celebrate food's non-nutritional goodness.

 

For Richard Chamberlain, I wanted to show The Madwoman of Chaillot, but I understand there's some rights issue keeping it out of circulation. I don't feel I was settling for second best with Twilight of Honor with Claude Rains.

 

Humpday Horror came about because I love Cat People and happened to see The Haunted Mouse in a list of short films. I originally intended it to be a night of cats, but something just didn't feel right about what I came up with, so I deleted that and went with classic horror.

 

The birthday tributes stem from the fact that I've been on a Toshiro Mifune kick for a couple of years, so I wanted to share some of his lesser-known movies. Since his birthday is April first, it seemed a natural time to showcase him then, and I thought to do a whole day of other stars having that somewhat-odd birthday.

 

The five extra premieres from a preferred studio was a godsend (thanks lzcutter!) because it let me put in Ellery Queen with Ralph Bellamy and Margaret Lindsay, one of my favorite series.

 

The food chain revisited -- as soon as I saw the challenge theme of Food, Glorious Food, the first thing that popped into my head was Little Shop of Horrors. Sweeny Todd was close on its heels. Filling out the evening with people-as-food was the easiest to schedule. The only problem was that Soylent Green is an obvious, and much-loved, choice, but I couldn't fiddle the times to accommodate it without using a third-rate short movie.

 

Saturday night might seem like a rip-off of this month's Soviet theme, but it's actually more of a counterpoint. When I first saw TCM's schedule, I loved it (naturally) but it also saddened me because some of my favorite 'Russian' movies were absent. I'm really rather surprised that Anastasia has never been an Essential.

 

Overall, this was weird because I've been jotting down ideas for months, but the only ones I ended up using were 'series' and 'tv stars in real movies,' and I had to combine those two to make it legitimate.

An attorney says he is one of those Innocent Husbands when in court for The Divorce of Lady X

*Fredmill's Programming Notes:*

 

Hello everyone! I've decided to participate in this go round of the challenge since I was pressed for time and unable to participate in the last one. From what I've read so far, the schedules that have been posted are great.

 

Anyways, in regards to my schedule, here is some background about it. Each of the themes for the days either relate to song titles, something that is common within the theme of each of the films, pertains to something that the actors had also worked on for another medium as well as a common role that each of the actors played.

 

For the Food Boot Camp Requirement of the Challenge, I decided to take several films and discuss some of the different aspects that food plays a role in them. Several films show food as causing one to lose their appetite at the site of it. There are also one or two films which pertain to the business side of the food and whether or not people can survive with it as a major source of income as well as their source for actual survival. Plus, there are one or two in which a couple of folks always seem to have the idea that it's okay to crash dinner in the process. Through all of that, some of the folks just like to get together during each of the different times in which everyone dines. In fact some of the films are TCM Premieres from Paramount, also fits the requirement for the five premieres from a single studio.

 

In regards to the Star of the Month, I chose Tyrone Power as the Star of the Month for April. I really enjoyed watching several of his films that he was in and I am appreciating more of his work that I have seen recently. It's nice to see TCM show some of his films every once in a while. I know "Alexander's Ragtime Band" is getting shown next month as part of the 31 Days of Oscar event.

 

Another theme that I came up with pertains to the actors and actresses who each starred in at least one episode of the sci-fi show, "The Twilight Zone." Several of the actors got their start as a result of the show and some saw their careers get a big boost from their stints in the process. Some of the folks include Ann Francis, Dana Andrews, Burgess Meredith, Robert Redford and Agnes Moorhead to name a few.

 

Some other themes that I included films which have events on ocean liners, finding ways to kill one's wife and a couple of men who have had the distinction of playing a certain fellow named "Bond." There is also two birthday tributes on the 29th, one for Celeste Holm with a day of her films and an evening of auto racing films for NASCAR driver Dale Earnhardt who would have been 59.

 

The Essential for the week is "The Day the Earth Stood Still (1951)" and the night is built around Michael Rennie as well.

 

The TCM Silent Sunday night movie is "Sunrise (1927)" with Janet Gaynor and George O'Brien and the TCM Import is the film, "A Black Veil for Lisa (1969)" with John Mills.

 

The TCM Underground films are "Mystery of the Wax Museum (1933)" with Lionel Atwill and Fay Wray and "The Return of Dr. X (1939)" with Humphrey Bogart and Dennis Morgan.

 

The TCM Premieres include "Atlantic Adventure (1935)" with Lloyd Nolan, "A Black Veil for Lisa (1969)," which was mentioned above, "The Sins of Rachel Cade (1961)" with Angie Dickinson and Roger Moore, "Champagne for Caesar (1950)" with Ronald Colman, Celeste Holm and Vincent Price, "The Last American Hero (1973)" with Jeff Bridges, "Corky (1972)" with Robert Blake, and "Hold That Ghost (1941)" with Bud Abbott, Lou Costello and Joan Davis. The Paramount TCM Premieres are "Three Cornered Moon (1933)" with Claudette Colbert, Richard Arlen and Mary Boland, "Golden Harvest (1933)" with Chester Morris, Richard Arlen and Genevieve Tobin, "Honor Among Lovers (1931)" with Fredric March, Claudette Colbert and Ginger Rogers, "Night After Night (1932)" with George Raft, Constance Cummings and Mae West and "Ebb Tide (1937)" with Ray Milland, Frances Farmer, Barry Fitzgerald and Lloyd Nolan.

 

Well, that about wraps it up. I have enjoyed doing these challenges and I can't wait for the next one. Hopefully, this schedule that I have created is good.

Program Notes

 

Another average week in my programming challenge life.

 

For my 5 studio premieres I chose Fox. The idea was to highlight one each weeknight but I couldn?t find one I liked with the Food theme so I wrapped a couple around Laurel and Hardy and spread the others over the other weeknights.

 

A couple of theme explanations are Sunday night ?Warner Brothers vs. The Marx Bros.? where the two films that brought a rather famous exchange of letters between Groucho and Jack Warner. Warners wanted to sue the Marxes for using ?Casablanca? in the title. An Osbourne introduction with some back story would be of interest to all.

 

?Out Of Their Box? on Wednesday is for actors who were thrown into something that they clearly were not known for. Cagney later, and more successfully, did some westerns.

 

?Men Are Too Smart? is my little rant on the current TV habit of portraying most men, at least in comedies, as dolts of the highest order.

 

Stan and Ollie are my Stars of The Month. Shorts are thrown in among the features. One Hardy solo film is featured.

 

2nd Unit Stars ? Yakima Canutt. He is one of the most important, seldom seen men in movies. His career has had him be actor, writer, stunt man, stunt coordinator, and director of many action scenes. He did the chariot race from ?Ben Hur.?

 

Most everything else is pretty plain.

*Kingrat's Notes:*

 

The Star of the Month could only be the much missed Jennifer Jones, and Wednesday highlights four of her Fox films new to TCM. Sunday is Mother's Day. Perhaps your mom has faults, but can you imagine having any of the three terrors as your mother? On a lighter note, sometimes Hollywood mothers are close to the age of their screen children, and these are four famous examples. Jean Eustache's masterpiece The Mother and the ****, though much admired, is not readily available.

 

Monday takes its cue from Three on a Match to present five groups of three related films. 15 films in 24 hours: it works for the 1930s, but sure wouldn't work today. Tuesday salutes the Southern belle. During the classic era the South was the most exotic part of the country, and unlike most women, the belle had permission to be stubborn, willful, manipulative, sexy, eccentric, neurotic, or just plain nuts. Hollywood paid a surprising amount of attention to the aging belle as well. It's no coincidence that the films scheduled include four Oscar-winning performances and three other nominations.

 

Today a surprising number of Americans have negative views of the French, but that was not true earlier, especially in the 1950s. Hollywood kept trying to make stars of French actresses, though most of them did not succeed.

 

Food, Glorious Food: OK, I'm playing with the ham idea. Barrymore plays a ham actor in Twentieth Century, and Scout dresses as a ham in To Kill a Mockingbird. But Stanwyck cooks eggs for her man, and Paul Newman bets that he can eat 50 hard-boiled eggs. A life-changing scene in I Am a Fugitive from a Chain Gang involves a hamburger in a diner. Too bad we can't all have family dinners like the one in Meet Me in St. Louis. The quotation is from Joni Mitchell's song "Banquet," so the evening continues with the movie that inspired her when she was a girl. She loved the Rachmaninoff theme used in The Story of Three Loves. Mitchell wrote songs for The Arrangement and Alice's Restaurant.

 

Friday features clients of Henry Willson, the agent who found and re-named a number of extremely good-looking movie stars. The guest programmer is my other half, who supposedly doesn't like classic films but has been known to get thoroughly hooked on some, including these four, which aren't the obvious choices to convert someone to TCM. TCM Underground visits Camp Joan: Joan Collins as a nun and Joan Crawford lip-synching in blackface. After Crawford in Torch Song, why did I think of zombies? Oh....

 

On Saturday you don't have to wait until dark to watch film noir. The End of the Affair, The Seventh Cross, and The Black Book apply noir styling to subjects not normally associated with noir. The Furies, that noirish psychological western plus women's melodrama, is essential viewing for me. The rest of the day features films starring the first five actresses from Mother's Day.

About my schedule:

 

I chose Ward Bond because he is amazing and never gets recognized. He may seem like "just a character actor" but he has had as many lead parts as, say, Claude Rains, and is just as talented, IMHO. I love giving character actors their due, and he is one of my favorites. I had to recognize him.

 

Disneyland is one of my favorite places ever, and I thought, hey, how fun to do a week long tribute and use the park as a theme! I used the park as it is now, so there's no attractions that aren't open anymore, and it's Tarzan's Treehouse instead of the Swiss Family Robinson treehouse, etc. But MAN it was hard to narrow it down to those films---how do you decide between all the films with "Alice" or "tea" in the title? or all the films about King Arthur? It's nice, though, to have lots of choices so I have some wiggle room when time doesn't work for me. I was able to have some fun, too, not being too rigid. This is why I started the schedule with my favorite theme, the tribute to the amazing choreographer Onna White (who has the same last name as Snow White, get it?)--I love recognizing non-actors and non-directors, don't you? Other filmmakers get so little credit. My other favorite schedule is "characters named Buzz" because I realized how common that name was in the '50s and thought that was a common bond never used before. (It might have been, but I don't remember it.)

 

I grouped things by Land. Fantasy Land got two days because, being one of the original lands, it has by far the most rides/attractions. I tried, however, to put the family type films on Sunday afternoon/evening because in my house Sunday is a day to spend with the family and watch classics together. Plus after all that happiness I was able to schedule a really depressing movie for TCM Imports (Grave of the Fireflies doesn't get the recognition it deserves). I was so pleased to find an excuse to show two amazing Henson films, The Dark Crystal and The Great Muppet Caper. For the Storybookland schedule I grouped the films, 2 novel films, and 2 short story collections.

 

Only sometimes did I show the actual film the rides were based on so that when I did it was special. For example, I showed Raiders of the Lost Ark, the basis for the Indiana Jones ride, and African Queen, the basis for The Jungle Cruise. Even though it's Tarzan's treehouse, I miss when it was the Swiss Family Treehouse, so I scheduled the Disney Swiss Family Robinson in honor of that, which has the best cinematic Treehouse ever, IMHO. Big Thunder Mountain is based on that Monument Valley/Bryce Canyon area in Southern Utah, so I took the opportunity to show some of John Ford's amazing films that were filmed in Monument Valley.

 

Rather than show Who Framed Roger Rabbit for toon town (that's what Toon Town is based on), I went with other films where toons are in a live action world. I showed my favorite Disney "live action" film, which is also highly underappreciated, Bedknobs and Broomsticks. I chose from the myriad of non-Disney animation combined with live action films and picked the Incredible Mr Limpett. (Since the next two films were Disney I didn't want Disney overkill). For Donald's Boathouse I almost went with a Donald O'Connor theme but thought that would have been too Musical-y, considering the night theme, so I went with two movies about characters who live in houseboats. I also thought What a Way to Go, which "makes fun" of musicals with Gene Kelly, was a nice transition into the musicals. By the way, those Main Street USA films, which are all based in the time frame Main Street USA is referencing, also all contain music heard on Main Street USA year round (except at Christmastime of course). Main Street USA, by the way, also plays music from "Oklahoma".

 

The Lincoln show just barely reopened last month, so, yay, I could show some Lincoln films. I thought a Shirley Temple film was good to transition out of the musicals of the night, and a John Ford film would be a good transition into Frontierland. Frontierland includes a brand new Private Screenings with Charles Laughton, one of the many amazing actors I wish Robert Osbourne could interview!

 

The food challenge was easy to work into the schedule, since overpriced restaurants and food stands are more common than characters in Disneyland. For my food challenge I almost went with films featuring restaurants, but I thought it would be more creative, and more fun for me, to have movies with Tasty Titles (food embedded in the title). So I have 2 Don Knotts films and 2 1930 films.

 

I saved New Orleans Square for the last because I love it the most!

 

Most of the themes are self-explanatory. However, some of the themes inspired by rides and attractions are only obvious if you remember the ride pretty well. For those of you who have never been to Disneyland, or who barely remember it, here is a guide to understanding those themes:

 

MR TOAD?S WILD RIDE: Car lovers ---In the ride, which is based on the disney version of The Wind in the Willows, Mr Toad becomes obsessed with cars (and goes to jail for it), so I scheduled two films that have characters obsessed with cars. (I found a common link between two movies I wanted to premier anyway, and they fit with a ride!)

 

STORYBOOKLAND: Children?s novels & stories ---This ride is all about riding on canal boats and looking at dioramas of classic fairy tales and other stories. This is why the schedule contains movies of famous stories, 2 collections of classic short stories and 2 novels.

 

SPLASH MOUNTAIN: The Confederacy ---Splash Mountain is known for the big drop at the end that gets everyone wet, but 90% of the ride is a diorama of the "Br'er Rabbit" section of the film Song of the South --hence my films set in the South, both during the Civil War.

 

THE MANY ADVENTURES OF WINNIE THE POOH: Out of body experiences ---This one sounds like a reach, but if you've ever ridden the fairly recent ride, you'd know why I did this. You may remember the cartoon Winnie the Pooh and the Blustery Day in which Pooh dreams of Heffalumps and Woozles. A huge part of this ride is not only the dream, but showing Pooh's "spirit" leave his body, then watching his spirit float around and go to the land of Heffalumps and Woozles, then the spirit goes back. In fact this is the coolest part of the ride. So I chose two films in which someone's spirit leaves their body. (In this case, they both die, but their spirit leaves their body and enters into another person's body and stays there.)

 

ENCHANTED TIKI ROOM: Very Important Parrots ---The Tiki Room is all about animatronic parrots talking to you, singing, dancing, and doing elaborate production numbers, but basically is all about parrots, so I picked two films that feature parrots.

 

DONALD?S BOAT: On our lovely houseboat ---**** is basically 1 roller coaster and a bunch of buildings you walk through. Most of the buildings are the houses of famous cartoon characters. Donald Duck, being a sea creature, then, lives on a boat. So these are films with people who live on houseboats.

 

SAILING SHIP COLUMBIA: Laughton at sea ---The sailing Ship Columbia has turned into a pirate ship but was based on a regular ship, and now I forgot which one, so these are "regular ship" movies that have ships that look just like the Columbia. I picked two Laughtons so I could do Private Screenings: Charles Laughton, which we Laughton fans wish could actually exist.

 

FOR PEOPLE WHO AREN'T FAMILIAR WITH DISNEYLAND:

 

STAR TOURS:ROBOTS -----The whole premise of Star Tours is that it's a tour of the stars gone wrong, set in the Star Wars galaxy, driven by and hosted a robot (voiced by Pee Wee Herman himself, actually), and also features R2D2 in the ride, and R2 and C3PO in the line---hence the Robot theme.

 

BIG THUNDER MOUNTAIN RAILROAD: Bond & Ford?s Monument Valley adventure ---As I said before, Big Thunder Mountain is actually based on the rock formations in Southern Utah, in the Bryce Canyon/Zion's/Monument Valley area.

 

NEW ORLEANS SQUARE: Swing it ---New Orleans square not only looks like New Orleans, it sounds like it too. You go there to hear live jazz bands and recorded Jazz music (every land has their own soundtrack), so I put in some vintage jazz shorts.

 

DISNEYLAND RAILROAD: Hitch?s Trains ---The Disneyland Railroad stops in every land so it can fit in any land, you see? I took advantage of this to put it in New Orleans. Hitchcock seems to use trains a lot so I scheduled my favorite of his train movies.

 

CLUB 33: The Best of 1933 ---I knew you'd understand the connection between "33" and "1933" but a lot of people never heard of Club 33. Club 33 is an exclusive restaurant in New Orleans Square where Disney used to dine, the only place that serves alcohol, so exclusive there is a year wait on reservations. So I had to do a tribute to that special place to close it up, as well as doing tribute to an amazing year in Hollywood history. Why of all those did I choose Lady for a Day for the Essential film? Because it's my favorite of them all, because it STILL makes me cry, because it's everything a films should be--funny, tender, for men and women, great characters, a semi-surprise ending that I didn't expect when I saw it, and afterwards you feel compelled to treat people better and help the poor. Plus it's by one of my favorite directors Frank Capra! How essential can you get?

 

I hope y'all like & understand my schedule because I worked hard on it. I'm quite proud, and I hope TCM will show all my premiers, especially the ones that don't exist on "home video". Please?!?!

Programming Notes: Challenge #15 from Countessdelave

Week of May 1-7, 2011

 

I picked the week of May 1-7, 2011 after realizing that the schedule for May, 2010 might be announced by the time I posted my schedule. I have used all 15 premieres allowed and Paramount is my preferred studio.

 

Sunday. There are a lot of movies with ?Jane? in the title-even more than in my homage to them in Me Tarzan, You Jane.

 

Spousal Support deals with one spouse working in front of the camera and another behind the camera. Not all couples were actually married at the time they made these films but I?d like to think that the sparks flew. I was able to carry the same theme into Silent Sunday Nights and TCM Imports.

 

Monday. I always love finding out about the folks behind the scenes. I?ve learned a lot from fellow posters-thanks!

 

Bud Kelland often wrote for the Saturday Evening Post and many of his stories were adapted for film. I?m particularly delighted to premiere Thirty Day Princess.

 

Ghost Writers is a topic that I?ve been hashing around for months. I?m fascinated by this topic. I?ve programmed two new premieres (and real treasures too): Rhythm on the River and Dear Ruth.

 

Tuesday. Sex, Lust and Mary Astor. Poor Mary Astor. She had a messy scandal in the mid-thirties but rose above it to triumph in The Maltese Falcon, Midnight and The Palm Beach Story. I?ve thrown The Story of Temple Drake in to the day, as well.

 

There are several birthdays on this day-none more important than that of our beloved Robert Osborne. Tonight he REALLY gets to program what he wants to see (including a premiere of Incendiary Blonde, with Betty Hutton).

 

The wonderful Make Way For Tomorrow is a great film with Beulah Bondi. There are a few short pieces that relate to Bing Crosby. I would have programmed Sing, Bing, Sing but I ran out of premieres for this short time slot.

 

Wednesday. Here?s a tongue twister for you: Wini, Wendy, Wanda Wednesday. Say it three times. It?s a lineup of films from all of these ladies.

 

My Star of the Month is Ann Dvorak. I?ve been a fan for a long time and I think it?s time she got her own month to shine. I?ve included a premiere of The Way to Love, with Maurice Chevalier.

 

Thursday. TCM did a month-long tribute to Mexican Cinema a few years ago. I loved many of the films and wanted to schedule a few of my favorites on Cinco de Mayo. The rest of the afternoon is devoted to the ?Hollywood view? of Mexico in the 20s-40s (thus, Taco Bell Theater).

 

Birthday tributes to Alice Faye and Tyrone Power round out the evening. Alexander?s Ragtime Band stars both of these engaging performers. There are two premieres: Music is Magic and The Razor?s Edge.

 

Marie Antoinette seemed like the perfect segue into the next day. After all: we all remember Marie?s most famous line.

 

Friday. I scheduled the food theme for today because of TCM Underground. Dessert Combat is my tribute to various pie, cake and dessert fights. I premiered Smashing Time and a Three Stooges short.

 

The evening schedule is given to Robert Osborne and his co-host, Graham Kerr, the Galloping Gourmet (and original bon vivant of cooking shows in the 70s). I have a couple of male chef friends who have said that The Galloping Gourmet made cooking look ?cool? for men and that?s why they became chefs. I programmed A Night at the Ritz because I?ve wanted to see this film for some time. Hint, Hint.

 

TCM Underground has a theme of Unspeakable Food. No explanation necessary.

 

Saturday. Into the Woods and Onto the Sound Stage is an all-day fairy tale and fantasy theme. The Red Shoes is a great Essential, in my view. It?s such a wonderful and unique version of the Hans Christian Andersen story.

 

When I researched various fairy tales, I discovered that films using the ?Cinderella? theme were plentiful. In fact, one could program an entire day. It must be the most popular fairy tale adapted to film. I premiered First Love, with Deanna Durbin. It?s one of many modern-day adaptations of the classic tale.

*Fedya's Notes:*

 

I did the sex schedule back in Programming Challenge #12, and the rock and roll schedule back in Programming Challenge #11. So, you knew the drugs schedule couldn't be far behind. And here it is.

 

Call it pot, or grass, or mary jane, or the demon weed, the Sunday morning and afternoon schedule deals with a bunch of lousy puns related to marijuana. (Unfortunately, I couldn't time things properly to have the short begin at 4:20 PM.) If you're wondering how The Hoodlum Saint fits in, the screenplay was written by "Spig" Wead. (*The Wings of Eagles*, the biopic of his life, didn't fit in properly in the time constraints.)

 

If you think the Sunday morning puns are bad, wait until Sunday evening comes along. To "roll" joints, we start off with Till the Clouds Roll By, a biopic about Jerome Kern, who appears in the Warner Bros. Silver Jubilee short. The "joints" should be obvious; the title of the TCM Import translates into English as "Claire's Knee".

 

Monday is the day I combined the drug schedule with the requirement to have at least a prime time about "Food, Glorious Food". Or, in my schedule, "Food, Inglorious Food". In the morning and afternoon, various people suffer having pills or poisons put in their drinks, usually alcoholic, but in the case of Notorious, it's Ingrid Bergman's coffee that gets the poison, while Joan Fontaine gets it in her milk in Suspicion -- or at least she thinks she does. The theme continues on Monday night with the bad stuff in food. (Technically, in Zero Hour!, it's just food poisoning, not somebody putting poison in food.) Gene Tierney poisons her own food in Leave Her to Heaven, Robert Mitchum poisons meat given to Gregory Peck's dog in Cape Fear, a series of food tasters get poisoned in Eddie Cantor's Roman Follies, and Jackie Gleason helps put LSD in the prison food supply in Skidoo. Since Mickey Rooney appears in Skidoo, and I had an hour left, I filled that hour with the "Private Screenings" interview he did with Robert Osborne.

 

On Tuesday, we get back to the horrid puns, this time replacing the marijuana plant with the coca plant. The "blow" and "crack" movies should be obvious; as for putting Spellbound in with the "lines" movies, it's because poor Gregory Peck goes nuts every time he sees lines in white. As for the "Coke heads" in prime time, One, Two, Three stars James Cagney as a Coca-Cola executive in Berlin. Valley of Decision, and the short that follows, both are set partially in steel mills, which use the coal by-product coke in their production process. If you've seen the "Word of Mouth" piece with Carleton Carpenter that TCM shows, you'll recall that he had a scene in Father of the Bride involving getting a bottle of Coca-Cola from Spencer Tracy's kitchen, with Spencer having all sorts of problems getting the Coke bottles opened. Hush, Hush... Sweet Charlotte is included because of the back story. Bette Davis and Joan Crawford didn't get along after the making of What Ever Happened to Baby Jane, and Bette wanted to get back at Joan. Since Joan had been married to a Pepsi executive and insisted on having Pepsi cameos in her later movies, Bette is said to have brought a Coca-Cola vending machine to the set just to tick Joan off. It worked, since Joan was replaced by Olivia de Havilland. The night ends with one of literature's most famous cocaine users, Sherlock Holmes.

 

Wednesday starts off with two explicit references to opium, and a reference to poppy flowers in The Wizard of Oz. The schedule then "slips us a few Mickeys": Mickey Mouse in Hollywood Party, Mickey Rooney and Mickey Shaughnessy in A Nice Little Bank That Should Be Robbed, and Mickey Spillane in Ring of Fear. The next three movies involve people trying not to take drugs other people impose on them: Leslie Banks has a dentist try to force ether on him in the original version of The Man Who Knew Too Much; Robert Mitchum nearly gets jabbed in His Kind of Woman; and Russ Tamblyn has to make it look like he's taking heroin without actually doing so in High School Confidential.

 

It's back to the bad puns on Wednesday night, as we have several references to stimulants.

 

Probably the most controversial part of the schedule comes on Thursday. If I was going to do a week of drug references, I figured I'd pick a Star of the Month who died of a drug overdose. I knew there were quite a few; I didn't know just how many there were. So, the Thursday morning and afternoon lineup includes movies by OD victims that I didn't want as Star of the Month for one reason or another (or they just didn't make enough movies to be Star of the Month). Some of them were suicides (Charles Boyer), some accidental (Elvis Presley), and some accidentally induced by their doctors (Robert Walker). Indeed, in The Clock, we get two OD deaths for the price of one: Walker and Judy Garland, who also appears in the following short, "Every Sunday".

 

George Sanders committed suicide by barbiturate overdose, is fairly recognizable, made a lot of movies (by my count, TCM has shown something like 25-30 of his films not including all the Falcon and Saint films he made), and as far as I know has never been TCM Star of the Month before. So, he'd make a good choice as Star of the Month. As for the Traveltalks short, I included it because it mentions the Lorelei, which is part of the soundtrack to This Land is Mine.

 

On Friday morning, we have four films where people fall in love thanks to having taken drugs. The two leads in Remember fall in love all over again after taking a potion that makes them forget the past; Gregory Peck would never have met Audrey Hepburn if she hadn't been drugged before leaving her country's embassy in Roman Holiday; Jack Lemmon gets so drunk at a bachelor party that he marries Virna Lisi in How to Murder Your Wife; and Lemmon falls further in love with Shirley MacLaine after she tries to kill herself with his sleeping pills in The Apartment. (Unfortunately, The Miracle of Morgan's Creek didn't time out properly, forcing me to put two Lemmon movies back to back.)

 

When a woman gets intoxicated on screen, it generally seems so much more fun than when it happens to a man. Thursday afternoon kicks off with two lurid pre-Codes; in Night Nurse, a mother is kept drunk so that she won't know they're trying to starve her kids to death and take the trust fund money. Then, in Life Begins, Glenda Farrell would rather drink in the hospital than give birth. Henry Fonda's kids liquor up Lucille Ball when she comes to dinner in Yours, Mine, and Ours while Ingrid Bergman gets drunk on Idaho champagne in Cactus Flower.

 

As Thursday's schedule showed, drugs and booze caused a lot of havoc to the actors off-screen. Lots of movies have been made with actors falling prey to drugs, too; Friday night's schedule is given to this topic, as it allowed me to use Valley of the Dolls and especially Beyond the Valley of the Dolls for TCM Underground

 

On Saturday morning, we have some "good" drugs: a rabies vaccine, a treatment for syphilis, and a drug that makes Kurt Russell The Strongest Man on Earth. (Apparently back then, even the Disney studio didn't think steroids were a bad thing.) But as in one of those awful video outtake specials, we get to see what happens "When Good Drugs Go Bad". Two veterans get addicted to heroin in Heroes for Sale and A Hatful of Rain; Dr. Jekyll's chemical experiments turn him into madman Mr. Hyde; and Orson Welles cuts drugs in post-war Vienna into a fraction of their strength, making them useless and killing lots of people who are treated with them. Bigger Than Life might be the most interesting movie of the bunch: it's got James Mason as a heart patient who gets treated with cortisone -- and gets addicted to it, turning him into a hilarious Jesus freak. (Wife Barbara Rush should have sent him to live with the Tallulah Bankhead of Die Die My Darling; the two would make a lovely couple.)

 

Finally on Saturday night, we see what happens if you try to keep a drug deal from going down by hiding the drugs, or if you otherwise try to mess with the drug dealers. Blind Audrey Hepburn gets a heroin-filled doll in Wait Until Dark, the TCM Essential; Susan Sarandon's idiot brother-in-law tries to steal a drug shipment from the dealers in Atlantic City; more drugs get hidden in The Lineup; and some idiot teenagers find heroin and attempt to sell it themselves in Stakeout on Dope Street.

 

Not counting the regular features (Silent Sunday Nights, TCM Imports, and TCM Underground), I've only got five or six premieres, so I don't have to declare any one studio as my special studio that gets me five extra premieres. For the record, the premieres are:

 

The Green Grass of Wyoming

Leave Her to Heaven

Roman Scandals

A Nice Little Bank That Should Be Robbed

Bigger Than Life

 

(I'm pretty certain Reap the Wild Wind has aired before, but I'm well short of the 10-premiere limit anyway.)

*Audreyforever's Notes (minus the winky emoticons):*

 

Premiere?s- 6?Preferred Studio: Fox

 

Notes: Even though it took long enough, I got in my schedule before the deadline and I hoped most of you will be pleased. I got a lot of rare finds through the TCM Library that are fun and entertaining. Sunday morning we start off with a fun little subject: Cupid. I picked three movies that will get you in the mood for love. Then the spotlight goes to one of those great actors- Henry Fonda. I pick a handful of his earlier, lesser known work. On May 16th, the anniversary of the first AA ceremony is the spotlight, so I picked two movies that dealt with movies and making them. Silent Sunday Night and TCM Imports are as usual. Monday morning starts off with a smash: a birthday tribute to Maureen O?Sullivan. I am enamored with her sweet acting ability, and I?ve picked 5 of her MGM gems in which she worked with other big contract stars of the time. Movies with screen tests in them are generally fun, so I chose 5 fun movies from decades all over. Last April I loved that RTCM had Fan Programmers on, so I decided to take the Guest Programmer idea and make it a Fan Programmer evening. The 5 movies there are my absolute favorites of all-time. Tuesday is filled with B-movies fun. We start off with juvenile stars, hit the pool with Esther, and end with the popular I Married a Witch. My SOTM choice is an odd, but fun one, Jimmy Durante. Wednesday is delicious, with so many treats on the menu. I cover breakfast, beverages, candy, and movies with food in the title. 8:00 has maybe the best example of food in the movies- the 1933 short subject, Menu. Over the last few months TCM has made a couple of ?A Night at the Movies? documentaries, so my TCM Spotlight for the month is the wild world of westerns. Somehow I started off with Rio on Friday and ended in Dr. Kildare?s hospital, but don?t worry, everything that day is pleasurable! Friday night we have rounded up a few movies that feature people from the Wizard of Oz in its cast. Moon Over Miami is a favorite of mine, and sure is amusing and colorful! I pay tribute to Vincent Price for TCM Underground. Saturday we start off with pre codes from early WB?s, and all have a slice of crime within the movie. Then comes the TCM Serial, Captain Marvel! I?ve heard a lot of good things, so I?m giving the people what they want. One of the great actors, Laurence Olivier is represented on his birthday with some of his films. The Great Ziegfeld, another of my favorites gets the Essential spot or it expansive and landmark techniques of music in film. The rest of the night is filled up with musical revues. I hope everyone enjoys my schedule and be sure for a good competition if I happen to get your vote!

*Filmlover's Notes:*

 

5 FILM RULE:

FOX

1. The Deep Blue Sea

2. Sink the Bismarck!

3. Dear Brigitte

4. Seventh Heaven

5. Those Magnificent Men In Their Flying Machines or How I Flew From London to Paris in 25 hours 11 Minutes

 

NOTES:

 

I want to start out my notes with the ?Food , Glorious Food? section that our hostess, lzcutter, put down as a required one-night theme. You might look at the films I chose and understand right away the Last Supper is what I am referring to in King of Kings. And you are equally as clever to get stealing a loaf of bread in Les Miserables is what led to the imprisonment in the first place. And, of course, Oliver! needs no explanation. But you might ask, ?What does The Adventures of Robin Hood have to do with food?!? Well, if you think about it, it is the film that relies the most on food to keep the story moving forward. For example:

 

Robin Hood meets Sir Guy of Gisbourne in the forest when Much kills the king?s deer for food. Robin encounters Prince John and Maid Marian at a feast at the castle when he brings said deer and drops it on the table. Robin meets Friar Tuck when he steals his mutton. Marian begins to recognize Robin?s noble side at a feast in Sherwood. And on it goes.

 

?Twilight for the Gods? highlights the last film of several major movie stars.

 

?Oh, you read the fan magazines?? is from Singin? in the Rain. In the past, there were many, many different movie magazines on the newsstands. I thought it would be fun to tie a certain movie in to a magazine title.

 

Hopefully the rest of the schedule needs no explanation.

The most important thing first: lzcutter set and ran a great challenge! Congratulations!

 

Thanks to tcmprogrammr for the comment in the original thread. I know they weren't talking about me, but any sign of encouragement is very heartening.

 

All the schedules are really amazing. The highlights (for me):

 

Filmlover -- England to France, especially *Those Magnificent Men . . .* and *Umbrellas of Cherbourg,* and Bardot as SOTM.

 

audreyforever -- Food for Thought and Ann Sothern's Maisie movies.

 

Fedya -- your various takes on the overall drug theme. Very funny!

 

countessdelave -- Graham Kerr as guest (I'm a great fan), Ghost Writers, and WWWWednesday!

 

LonesomePolecat -- Mickey's **** is loaded with great movies. The Henson and Miyazaki movies are wonderful.

 

kingrat -- The way you twisted the mother's theme around was fantastic. Jennifer Jones as SOTM would always be good. Right now, it is especially touching.

 

movieman1957 -- Stan and Ollie as SOTM! Gamblers Synonymous is great. The tribute to Yakima Canutt is long overdue.

 

Capuchin -- It's not just Nutrition and The Other Other White Meat are mean turns of the challenge theme.

 

Fredmill38 -- I May Be Poor and Let's Hear It for the Free-Thinkers are wonderful themes. Celeste Holm and Tyrone Power blocks are great.

 

As I suspected when I first saw it, I have to vote for SansFin's.

 

What I particularly liked --

 

Telling a Relationship Through Titles. I don't remember seeing that kind of theme before.

The Classic Clothes day, especially the trio of invisible movies.

*The Great Race* has the best ever pie fight, and *Blazing Saddles* set a new standard in culinary combat.

The Dining Out and Dining In sections -- *When Harry Met Sally* and *The Gold Rush,* still make me laugh.

Blessed are the Sweetmakers and Seems Fishy topped off a great day.

 

What really made it for me were the movies I've long wished TCM would show --

*The List of Adrian Messenger*

*The Play House*

*We're No Angels*

*A Tale of Five Cities*

*Blood Alley*

*Laura*

*If I Were King*

and many, many others.

 

I'm not sure you understood the concept behind the Underground, but *Mole / Tkhunela* is a great movie, and it's all good if it led to your showing *The Taming of the Shrew.*

 

So -- everyone had a great schedule, and it was terribly hard to pick just one, but I had to go with the one that made me really, really, really wish it were a real week's programming.

 

(Now I have to wait in fear about Filmlover is going to do for a cover for mine.)

I posted a new thread asking if anyone knew why "One Flew Over the Cukoo's Nest" is never shown. I think this thread might be the more appropriate venue ...

 

Has anyone else thought, wondered, why we haven't seen this excellent movie? I see it isn't scheduled for this month's series of Oscar movies ... I wonder why? Milos Forman, director. Jack Nicholson, actor. Louise Fletcher, Danny de Vito, and a host of other great actors co-starred. Is there something underlying that I don't know?

 

I've been wanting to see this movies for ages, and am surprised it's, again, missing from the month's list of greats.

 

If anyone knows anything I don't, please drop a line.

 

Thanks!

Suzan,

 

Welcome to the boards. I noticed that you started a thread in General Discussions for your question about *Cuckoo's Nest* and have posted in a couple of other forums as well.

 

This thread is dedicated to Voting for the 15th Program Challenge and isn't really the "more appropriate venue". The appropriate place would be the thread you already created earlier this evening in the GD forum.

 

I hope that someone who knows the answer to your *CN* question, will provide an answer in one of the various threads you have already started on the subject.

 

Best of luck!

How hard to decide between all these great schedules, packed with films I love, and clever programming ideas. But I have to narrow it down at least. This is a toss up for me between Contessdelave (I just watched The Women, so I get your name!) and Fedya's drug schedule. It's a tight race to the finish, but my vote goes to:

 

FEDYA

 

Brilliant drug ideas. Not all obvious ones, some title related, some plot related--it shows your knowledge of the films themselves. Hilarious. And you cleverly tied in the food challenge with your week-long theme. Plus, George Sanders is one of the most underrated actors ever, so bravo for giving him recognition. But anyone who schedules one of the greatest cartoons ever, "The Dot and the Line," deserves my vote.
