Are they leaving from Lauderdale? If so, opening night is "Where the Boys Are" with an interview with Paula Prentiss.

It's leaving from Miami, but your suggestion about Where the Boys Are and Paula Prentiss is excellent.

 

Oh, we're stopping in Key West. Maybe a Hemignway film, like the rarely seen The Breaking Point with John Garfield and Patricia Neal.

My ideal would be a "Nautical Silent Comedy Series"...just group all the shorts into one program methinks.

 

_Lloyd Shorts_:

A Jazzed Honeymoon

Captain Kidd's Kids

 

_Keaton Shorts:_

The Boat

The Love Nest

 

_Chaplin Shorts:_

The Immigrant

Shanghaied

Guess I'll have to switch to "Moon Over Miami" then!

Or "Old Man and the Sea". "Key Largo" is an excellent idea, soulsalsa!

*Where The Boys Are*, with Paula Prentiss would be a blast. I'll bring my rationed sunscreen, my teabags, and a bag of potato chips...

 

One of my favorites is *Heaven Knows, Mr. Allison*....I'd love to see that one! It might even tie into a visit to one of the turtle hatcheries or eco tours...sushi would be the perfect hors'deuvre...

I hope they show *Lifeboat* so the door prize can be a diamond bracelet! (Okay, rhinestone...It's the thought that counts!)

Wow!

Got the "Cruise email" yesterday. The Alloy Orchestra is taking the cruise. I am betting that means a Silent with Live Accompaniament is on the schedule. Could it be a Keaton Nautical Comedy? How cool is that? I am envious of you all

 

Though I'd hate to have to pay the surcharge they are going to incur for going over the luggage allowance. They've got some big gongs to pack.

My wife and I are booked on the cruise. We agree that Where The Boys Are would be loads of fun. A reunion of George Hamilton, Paula Prentiss, Connie Francis, and Yvette Mimieux would make it all the better. Sadly, Jim Hutton and Frank Gorshin are no longer with us, and Dolores Hart would most likely be unwilling or unable to attend.

I like the idea of nautical themed movies while we are aboard ship. Cool idea.

 

Personally though, I want to be reminded that we are at a classic movie festival of sorts, and so should have some more variety.

 

One recommendation that I would make is "Green Dolphin Street". This is a great Lana Turner / Donna Reed movie, and is really hard to find on DVD and is one of my personal favorites. It would be so great to see this film given the "Big Screen" treatment during this cruise.

 

And of course, "The Birds". Actually... it would be great if they had a whole section devoted to Hitchcock. Although the Birds is another one of my favorite films, I am lacking a proper education on the rest of his Hitch's movies.

The Alloy Orchestra: hope they play with a classic Harold Lloyd pic (The Kid Brother)! And Buster Keaton. I also heard that "Hands Up!" is a very funny silent Civil War comedy.

"Terror Aboard" (1933): entertaining murder-mystery set on a ship.

"The Hurricane" (1937) was so good!

And a couple Alice Faye & Betty Grable musicals would be fun.

So, would it be "Cool" or "Creepy" to see *Between Two Worlds* while on a cruise ship?

I hope they try to show mostly pre-1970 films (except maybe a few Ernest Borgnine). Some of the most popular movies at the TCM Film Fest were the rarely-seen ones, like HOOP-LA, NIGHT FLIGHT, THIS IS THE NIGHT, & THE CONSTANT NYMPH.

 

films like:

CHRISTOPHER BEAN

LETTY LYNTON

THE MACOMBER AFFAIR

TAKE ONE FALSE STEP

TONIGHT'S THE NIGHT
