Here's my explanation for the schedule.

 

Sunday: We start off celebrating the birthdays of Marty Feldman and Faye Emerson with two films each. Then to celebrate the birthday of Count von Zeppelin we have four movies about airships. In the first set of three movies about me, I'm Jewish so we have three Jewish directors.

 

Monday: We have three films done by art director Richard Day. We then celebrate the birthday of Guru Dutt and Tom Hanks with one film each. For my second set of three movies, I'm Canadian so we have three Canadian movies. (Yes Atlantic City counts as a Canadian city, notwithstanding its French director, New Jersey setting and American leads. Most of the other actors are Canadian and Canada coughed up much of the money.) This segues into the star of the month, James Mason. It's also O.J. Simpson's birthday, so what better movie than Beyond a Reasonable Doubt ?

 

Tuesday: It's the birthday of Jean Calvin, so we have three examples of Calvinist film, if such a thing is possible. Then it's three films photographed by cinematographer Geoffrey Unsworth. The last of his three movies segues into another set of three about me. In this case, it's three favorite novels made into favorite movies. It's also the birthday of William Blackstone, the most important commentator on English, and therefore American, law, so we have one of the great trial movies.

 

Wednesday: Birthday tributes for Thomas Mitchell and Yul Brynner are interrupted with a tribute for costume designer Wallace Plunkett. And to commemorate the rise of the Vichy regime, we have The Sorrow and the Pity.

 

Thursday: Today marks the anniversary of Alexander Hamilton's death, so we have a film about duels. We also celebrate the birthdays of Monte Hellman and Tod Browning. Then we have three movies that Hermes Pan helped choreographed. And continuing the Vichy theme, as well as commemorating the birth of Bruno Schulz. leading Polish writer and murdered by the Nazis, we have the premiere of Shoah.

 

Friday: We have two movies to celebrate Robert Forster's birthday. Then we have another three of me. I'm a historian, so we have three of the most impressive movies that look at history. Four movies celebrate composer Bernard Herrmann, and then we have the final three of me, three of my favorite rock movies.

 

Saturday: It's Bastille Day! Nothing but French movies! Since The Rise to Power of Louis XIV was made for French television, I claim it as my classic TV example.

You have made a wonderful schedule. I believe that your Saturday-day schedule is the first one I have seen that I have seen all of the movies!

Skim-

 

Yay! Another great schedule! You made by day tributing Plunkett, my fav costume designer. ANd Yellow Submarine is definitely a cult film-- inspired choice. Lots of good stuff in there. James Mason definitely doesn't get enough praise, but then, Thomas Mitchell is often ignored as well, so double yay!

 

Well, day #8 and already we have three very worthy opponents. I hope everyone else is working hard on their schedules. Can't wait to see what else y'all come up with!

{font:Times New Roman}Would you believe I'm also working on a Bastille Day week schedule? Skimpole and I both love those French films. Love all three schedules so far and hope to get mine in by this weekend, which is the last opportunity I'll have this month.

 

I typed a movie title wrong and may have created a new word: *FANNUY*. That's the ennui felt by those who don't like Joshua Logan movies.{font}

Notes for kingrat's schedule:

 

Sunday: After the Q movies, we have three films directed by Julien Duvivier. *Lydia* is a very loose remake of *Un carnet de bal*, which ties in with the Bastille Day programming on Saturday.

 

Monday: For the "three films about me" requirement, I chose the three films which come closest to portraying the South I grew up in, which had nothing to do with plantations and Civil War memories. For the "Story of My Life," in the interests of domestic harmony I chose not to include *I Married a Monster from Outer Space*. By the way, the star of *I Passed for White*, Sonya Wilde, married Jake Butcher, who built a banking empire in the Southeast, ran for governor, and later went to jail for fraud.

 

I worked for one day as an extra on *A Walk in the Spring Rain* and am one of the blurs in the background during a college scene. The first silent film I ever saw was DeMille's *The King of Kings*, which my elementary school class was taken to see around Easter. It seemed like illustrated scripture. This was public school, by the way; things have changed. *Checkmate* was a TV show which introduced me to many classic era stars. When I was a child, it was not uncommon for people to go the movies whenever, watch until the end of the film and then watch from the beginning to wherever they came in. My parents and I saw *Three Coins in the Fountain* this way. Maybe that's why I wasn't a movie fan as a child. Toward the end of my mother's life I took her to several revivals of old films, and one was *Kings Row*.

 

Tuesday showcases good films by directors who aren't household names, even among movie fans.

 

Not only are cinematographers used for the "behind the scenes" requirement of the challenge, they are the Stars of the Month, and Wednesday and Thursday are devoted to their work. Oswald Morris won BAFTA awards in consecutive years for the first three films of his tribute. Friday: just when I'd sorted out King Vidor and Charles Vidor, I realized that I was confusing Charles Vidor with Charles Walters. Friday's schedule helps straighten that out. Friday night: films about couples who play games were popular in the mid-60s. Watch several of these, and you'll need the tranquilizers from *The Relaxed Wife*.

 

Saturday, which is Bastille Day, features classic French films and their American remakes.

 

Premieres: *Wild River; I Was a Teenage Werewolf; I Passed for White; Three Coins in the Fountain; North Dallas Forty; Sons and Lovers; Walkabout; Medium Cool; Cul-de-Sac; Games; La Chienne*.

kingrat -

You have made a very wonderful schedule. I have deep fondness for French movies and you have selected many of the best.

 

I am amazed you choose *Un carnet de bal* (1937). I believe it is the underpinning of French cinema and perhaps one of the most important movies ever made. The music by Jaubert is wonderful. I think I will never forget the gentle and romantic Valse Grise.

 

*Negatives* (1968) is surely the type of movie suitable for TCM's Underground. It is an odd thing well worth watching.

 

It will be a wonderful and rare treat to see the trilogy Saturday night! I do not think they have ever been shown together. I wish very much that the TCM programmers would schedule this!

 

I believe this is the schedule to beat in this Challenge!

Thanks, SansFin! This challenge was a lot of fun. I'm very impressed by all three of the other schedules. SansFin, I love your witty play on the festival names. Maybe you can follow up with a "Loco Arno" festival and include comedies set in Italy! I also especially like the Givenchy tribute (Audrey in all those beautiful clothes!) and Don't Quit Your Day Job.

 

Skimpole, in addition to all the French films on Bastille Day I also particularly liked James Mason as SOTM--there would be so many different kinds of films, and the tributes to Geoffrey Unsworth, Walter Plunkett, and Bernard Herrmann. Day of Wrath and Army of Shadows are two films I haven't seen but would love to.

 

James, I loved your film composer day, and, as you might expect, was delighted to see that John Barry's score for King Rat was among those chosen. Thelma Ritter would make a great SOTM. I'm not too aware of individual production designers, and would love to look at Ken Adam's work.

> {quote:title=kingrat wrote: }{quote}Maybe you can follow up with a "Loco Arno" festival and include comedies set in Italy!

 

I thank you for your kind words.

 

This was one of my rejects:

6:00 AM *Il boom* (1963) Vittorio De Sica biting satire

7:45 AM *L'ape regina* (1963) Ferreri fable - mate and die

9:15 AM *La vita agra* (1964) based on Bianciardi's book It's a Hard Life

11:00 AM *The Devil's Brother* (1933) Thelma Todd with Laurel and Hardy

12:30 PM *The Adventures of Baron Munchausen* (1943) Classic buffoonery of the highest level

2:30 PM *Divorce Italian Style* (1961) Stefania Sandrelli directed by Pietro Germi

4:15 PM *Ghosts - Italian Style* (1967) Sophia Loren

6:00 PM *La grande bouffe* (1973) Marcello Mastroianni, Michel Piccoli and Phillipe Noiret

 

I believe these are the best and most accessible movies for an American audience. The time is ten minutes over as in the next movie would start at 8:15 PM. I could think of no alternates as good from which to select a shorter movie to replace one of these to make it fit properly.

Hi, Lonesome,

 

I really wanted to participate this time but my 1939 thread takes a bunch of time. I have several ideas I want to use in the Challenge; however, I may wait until next time. But one never knows...I have until the end of October to do something. In the meantime, I still will be taking my bus tour of America to your town...oh, wait, that's Sarah Palin, not me.

*kingrat*-- Great schedule! A whole day of French films is great. Love doing cinematographers as SOTM. I love how everyone is appreciating background artists even more than I hoped. I'm reading names I never noticed before. Yay!

 

*TCM*-- please show Three Coins in a Fountain. That movie makes me want to go to Italy via the movie screen.

 

*All participants*-- How will we ever decide between these great schedules? Thanks for the hard work! Love "getting to know you, getting to know all about you", as it were.

 

*Everyone else*-- it's only the Ides of October. Let's see those schedules!! You can do it!

{font:Arial}{color:black}Notes:

 

I know, I know, just a few days ago I said I wouldn't be able to contribute a schedule due to time, but then over the weekend inspiration struck. I was listening to the soundtrack of That's Entertainment and suddenly thought all the films featured in the movie would make an impressive lineup. I also thought it was an idea that would write itself and no one had ever done it before. Halfway through getting them all into a list, I realized why no one had. It's a daunting job!

 

(The only films left out were those ones in quick Gable clips during "You Made Me Love You" and one flash clip of Judy Garland "For Me and My Gal" in Summer Stock's "Get Happy" number)

 

For the "In My Background" section, I chose Cinema Paradiso (because I used to hang around the projection booth when I was young at a local theatre), Those Lips Those Eyes (because that was what I was like when I was about 18), and Play It Again Sam (because I was a writer and liked Bogart, just like Woody Allen did in the film).

 

For "In the Background," I chose editor Verna Fields, who was supposedly the person who introduced Steven Spielberg to George Lucas.

 

p.s. -- Much as I would like to take credit for the title "The Fu Manchurian Candidate", I have to admit it came from a film magazine of the Sixties.

Filmlover, great idea for a schedule. I know every time I watch That's Entertainment I want to watch every movie they mention, so this schedule is definitely for me. Awesome!

Thanks, LP!

 

I've also now allowed myself a look at the other schedules. Congrats to Sansfin, JamesinArlington, skimpole, and kingrat. Excellent!!!

filmlover -

You have made a wonderful schedule. It could not have been easy to find all the movies shown in that movie and fit them together. Your Fu Manchurian day is very appealing because of the wide variety within the basic character.

SansFin,

 

I've seen Daughter of the Dragon, but I'd really love to see the first two with Oland if only for the oddness of Jean Arthur being in not just one, but two, Fu Manchu movies.

I think my schedule is finished, but I have to double-check to make certain everything times out properly and that I haven't exceeded the number of premieres and other things like that.

I just finished my schedule. I have to proof it, check the times again and write up notes. Hopefully I'll be able to post tomorrow or Sunday morning (most likely).
