Wow two already?! And two very good ones. Camelot was a very creative idea there. There are a lot of Camelot movies. I'm working on mine and if anyone else uses my town I'll be very surprised.

Dear King and Sans,

 

Both of you have created very fine schedules.

 

King: I liked your sneak peek of the TCM 2011 Festival schedule. What will the schedule really look like? We can only wonder. Very clever-Women A-Z and your tribute to the plays of George Bernard Shaw (with a little twist). Poor Ralph Bellamy. It's true that he almost never gets the girl. I wonder whether he and Gig Young ever compared notes. It was very interesting that you and Sansfin picked Jean Simmons as SOM. She's a very good choice. Congrats on your schedule!

 

Sans: I liked your pick of Camelot as the town, your use of nursery rhymes and your tribute to Charles Lane. He has been on my list of possible SOMs to use someday. Many don't know him by name but everyone has seen him at sometime (either in film or television). Until his death, a couple of years ago, he was one of the last of a small, select group of 1906 SF earthquake survivors. Now there are only 2 or 3 left. Great job!

> Would you believe that I am ready to post my schedule and 1) we both picked the same week; 2) we both picked Jean Simmons as Star of the Month; and 3) we both used Hilda Crane as one of our premieres.

 

Thank you for kind words. I chose Ozu because so few know his works even though he is world-class director.

 

Add to strange: It seems natural to use same movies when we make tribute to same actress yet we both use *Hilda Crane* in place other than tribute.

 

Your schedule is very great. I never thought about Ralph Bellamy that way but is very true. I also like Noir by Negulesco and Major Barbara.

Thank you. I do not wish to use real place because others might use it. I would not want to make someone redo their schedule because they do not want to appear to copy. I use all pre-1990 movies in IMDB database with Camelot as keyword. I then have to go with keywords Arthurian Legend and King Arthur to find more movies to fill out day.

 

I am looking forward to seeing what city you chose.

Thank you for kind words. I pick Charles Lane because his performances were always wonderful even when only one or two scenes not considered important to movie. He received far too little credit. He is so unique I had to give picture - I think all recognize him even though they do not know his name.

I'm half way through my schedule. I'm excited about my Star of the Month--he's never been picked by TCM before, and he's my favorite actor of all time. i know you'll all agree he deserves to be picked. Tee hee.

Movieman pointed out that all our evening programs needed to start at 8:00pm, so I've revised the schedule slightly. A couple of Roman films have been added and Roman Holiday has been dropped, so On the Town is now "Rome Without Audrey." (I know, it pains me, too.) Two substitutions have been made in Women from A to Z: Irma La Douce has replaced Ivy and Ramona (1917) has replaced Roberta. But fear not, Joan Fontaine fans: Ivy now has its own category on Saturday, a category I may need to use again sometime.

Notes: The 2011 sneak preview uses the same kind of mix as the 2010 festival, which included favorites, some rarer or neglected films, shorts, one major silent film, and one major foreign film. The 2010 festival included a few more recent films such as The Stunt Man, which is why I chose Garp. Although Ralph Bellamy will be featured on TCM in June, that is a more general overview of his career that doesn't answer the question this sequence of films poses. Believe it or not, the hardest letter of the alphabet to find for the A to Z was O.

 

It's not surprising that Sansfin and I both chose Jean Simmons as Star of the Month: she will be sadly missed. Her birthday is January 31, so the month of January was chosen. TCM recently featured films from Shaw plays, so I decided to choose films that might fit the titles. Thus Arms and the Man led to a film about a giant octopus (OK, some of us have terminally warped minds--but you knew that.) Each of the last three films of the "Immortal Fables" has at least one element in common with the new Essential, Pandora and the Flying Dutchman, which may be the most beautifully photographed film I have ever seen.

 

Premieres: Mirage; Nightmare Alley; The World According to Garp; The Private Affairs of Bel Ami; Three Coins in the Fountain; Hilda Crane; Ivy; Ophelia; An Unmarried Woman; Vicki; X, Y, and Zee; Zita; The Blue Lagoon (1949); All the Way Home; Whistle Down the Wind.

Notes for AUDREYFOREVER

 

On Sunday I start off with a new TCM Festival, called Pre-Code Sunday, featuring different types of pre-codes. This particular Sunday includes films dealing with crime.

Next I set up two ?get-away? films that take place in sunny Sun Valley. Sun Valley Serenade is a premiere. Recently, I watched Heat Lightning and realized how similar it was to the Petrified Forest, so I scheduled a block of three films that take place in the desert. Essentials Jr. takes you to Arabia where Maria Montez and Jon Hall fall in love over and over again! Silent Sunday Night and TCM Imports are as usual.

 

Monday starts off with swinging films, and a lot of Marilyn Maxwell. She deserves a lot more credit for that beautiful face. Gillespie completists will be in heaven. The evenings schedules are all films from above, including the colorful classic, Heaven Can Wait.

 

There?s something about Reagan as an FBI man, so Tuesday starts off with Brass Bancroft. And if your interested with classic Radio?s, your in luck for about 9 hours. And then comes a lot of premieres with 6 amazing and colorful Fox Marquee Musicals.

 

I wasn?t sure if the On the Town spotlight dealt with one city or several cities, but the evenings schedule is just NYC. I made sure I included plenty of Traveltalks shorts!

 

Thursday?s daytime is all about MGM during the war years, starting off with the Stars of Tomorrow, as you can see. My personal favorite is Eyes in the Night, with Donna Reed, showing at 6:00am. Then I pay tribute to a very romantic team, but also forgotten team: Lana Turner and Clark Gable. I know a lot of people wanted Joel McCrea as SOTM, so there you have it!

 

Friday has 6 Columbia B?s, like the Lone Wolf and Jean Arthur in her early days. I don?t know why I picked The White Cliffs of Dover for my next films, but I had to fill in the spot. Friday evening has a line up of countryside classics. TCM Underground as usual.

 

Saturday is my favorite day of the week. First we pay tribute to an unforgettable star on her birthday---Barbara Stanwyck. And the Essentials kicks off with T.G.S.O.E., and a bunch of Train films following. The Late Night Essentials is also a new thing on TCM, covering lower-level classics.

This is glorious schedule!

 

Your Films From Above has many movies I like very much.

 

Joel McCrea deserves to be Star of the Month. So many forget him in list of hunky leading men.

 

I very much like Saturday tribute to Barbara Stanwyck. You choose many great movies.

 

Congratulations on great schedule!

I wanted to wait until you posted your comments to thank you for playing. It looks like a great schedule. It is funny because I used Joel McCrea as my SOTM way back in Challenge 3. (Sept. 06) Whatever it was it was some time ago. So that is great.

 

************

 

Also thanks to *Kingrat* for his schedule. Another great week. And thanks for being a good sport about the correction.

 

So gang, we are about two weeks in. We have some wonderful schedules and plenty of time to finish one if you want to join in the fun. You'll be surprised at what you learn about movies and maybe even yourself.

 

Everything is open until June 10.

Movieman,

 

I think Joel McCrea is one of the most requested SOTM not only on the boards but in Challenges as well. I had him as SOTM in one (maybe two) of my previous Challenges as well.

 

Hopefully, the programming staff is watching this!

NOTES FOR RDMTIMP

 

Most of the schedule is self explanatory. Since this was my first time, my organization was fairly simple. Daytime were usually built around birthdays.

 

Sunday - Both Mark Robson and Hope Lange have birthdays today. Both Sunday Silents are also based on Edith Wharton novels.

Monday - Busby Berkeley's birthday; also the anniversary of George Harrison's death, which prompts an evening of films he exec produced (and quite a group, that)

Tuesday - Virginia Mayo's birthday, and Paul Newman is my SOTM (I was amazed that he hasn't been SOTM yet - I imagine that will be rectified soon).

Wednesday - Woody Allen's birthday, and my On The Town spotlight - Vienna. We'll go from Strauss waltzes to Cotton and Welles, with a modern day meet-cute, and even some kink to round things off.

Thursday - Warren William by day; and Preston Sturges the writer by night (hoping against hope that a print exists of The Power and the Glory).

Friday - Korngold's music; and (since I live in Phoenix) a bit of old Arizona. For Underground, some Antonioni, and since Pink Floyd's music features in Zabriskie Point, I figured some live Floyd from Pompei would fit the bill.

Saturday - another composer spotlight (Alex North); and a salute to Richard Lester (including the truly essential A Hard Day's Night).

 

Premieres:

The Best of Everything

The Power and the Glory

Harper

Before Sunrise

Time Bandits

The Lonely Passion of Judith Hearne

Petulia

Mona Lisa

Monty Python's Life of Brian

The Night Porter

Never Say Die

Viva Zapata

Go Man Go

rdmtimp,

 

That's an excellent schedule for anyone, let alone a first-timer. Glad you took the plunge! I especially like the tributes to Korngold and Alex North. There's plenty on your schedule, like the Hope Lange and Warren William tributes, that would be easy for TCM to use.

 

Audreyforever,

 

Another fine effort. Lots of people would love to see those Fox musicals, as well as Joel McCrea as SOTM. Since I couldn't use Roman Holiday, I'm glad you did. And it was fun that neither of us made Barbara Stanwyck SOTM, but did tributes to her anyway.

 

Movieman,

 

By giving us 15 premieres and not setting a time frame, you gave us the opportunity to do some unusual things. Thanks!

Next I set up two ?get-away? films that take place in sunny Sun Valley. Sun Valley Serenade is a premiere. Recently, I watched Heat Lightning and realized how similar it was to the Petrified Forest, so I scheduled a block of three films that take place in the desert. Essentials Jr. takes you to Arabia where Maria Montez and Jon Hall fall in love over and over again! Silent Sunday Night and TCM Imports are as usual.

 

Monday starts off with swinging films, and a lot of Marilyn Maxwell. She deserves a lot more credit for that beautiful face. Gillespie completists will be in heaven. The evenings schedules are all films from above, including the colorful classic, Heaven Can Wait.

 

There?s something about Reagan as an FBI man, so Tuesday starts off with Brass Bancroft. And if your interested with classic Radio?s, your in luck for about 9 hours. And then comes a lot of premieres with 6 amazing and colorful Fox Marquee Musicals.

 

I wasn?t sure if the On the Town spotlight dealt with one city or several cities, but the evenings schedule is just NYC. I made sure I included plenty of Traveltalks shorts!

 

Thursday?s daytime is all about MGM during the war years, starting off with the Stars of Tomorrow, as you can see. My personal favorite is Eyes in the Night, with Donna Reed, showing at 6:00am. Then I pay tribute to a very romantic team, but also forgotten team: Lana Turner and Clark Gable. I know a lot of people wanted Joel McCrea as SOTM, so there you have it!

 

Friday has 6 Columbia B?s, like the Lone Wolf and Jean Arthur in her early days. I don?t know why I picked The White Cliffs of Dover for my next films, but I had to fill in the spot. Friday evening has a line up of countryside classics. TCM Underground as usual.

 

Saturday is my favorite day of the week. First we pay tribute to an unforgettable star on her birthday---Barbara Stanwyck. And the Essentials kicks off with T.G.S.O.E., and a bunch of Train films following. The Late Night Essentials is also a new thing on TCM, covering lower-level classics.

These schedules are all so good. I hope TCM steals them all so we can watch them. I'll make individual comments later. FInalizing my list---getting all the studios and director info I need for some of the titles I programmed. (I'm a rule-follower).
