March 18 to March 24, 2012

 

TCM has been paying tribute to film festivals around the world. I wondered what it would be like for people who do not properly hear the names or who misunderstand what is being said. The great variance from my original thoughts was that Friday was first to be The Venus Film Festival. The sci-fi and horror movies fitting for Saturday's The Ann Arbor Experiments Festival would have overloaded the schedule with those genres if I had not changed Friday to be of lawyers. I first wished to make it a day of surgeons performing miraculous surgeries. I did not do that as it may have been too esoteric and I had no way of searching for movies depicting bloodless amputations.

 

I did have a choice of the Toronto, Moscow, Tokyo or Telluride festivals. After picking movies for those names and moving them around I found Moscow the only one in which everything fit nicely with all good movies and not having to settle for a so-so film only because it would fit.

 

I wished to have a tribute on Monday, March 19th to Sir Richard Burton. He was a 19th Century author, ethnologist, and explorer. His only link to movies was to have another person with the same name become a star in the 20th Century. It is sad to say I could not find enough movies related to his deeds.

 

It was not easy to chose movies reflecting myself in any meaningful way. It is only very recently that movies have been made which portray my country in other than paeans or set during the Great Patriotic War. I worked in drab little offices most of my life and there are few movies about people like that. I had to chose movies that were at meaningful points in my life.

 

My first crush on an American actor was Steve McQueen in *The Thomas Crown Affair* (1968). The first movie Capuchin and I saw together was *How to Steal a Million*(1966).

 

I am told that when I was very little I saw a rug in the market which I wanted very much because it belonged to 'the beautiful woman'. I was so very young I did not know how to explain I had seen it in a movie. It was much later that my uncle recognized it as like one in *Tretya meshchanskaya* (1927).

 

The last movie my mother and I watched together was *Tsirk sgorel, i klouny razbezhalis* (1998). It is a very deep and moving film about shallow people.

 

The very first DVD I was ever given is *All That Jazz* (1979).

 

My tribute to a person in the background could have been Irving Berlin. That would have been like cheating because it was not done to meet the Challenge requirement. I wished to make one for Givenchy because the clothes are so beautiful. It also let me schedule many of my favorite Audrey Hepburn movies.

 

I believe all the themes and the movies I choose need no explanation. Some of it is silly. I think they are all good movies.

 

This is the first Challenge I have entered where I did not have to settle for a second-choice movie to fill a time slot because a first-choice movie did not fit.

 

I thank you very much for setting an excellent Challenge!

Schedule notes to follow in the next post!*

 

*Edited by: JamesinArlington on Oct 3, 201

{quote:title=JamesinArlington wrote:*

*}{quote}OK, here are the notes for my schedule.*

*The first thing is that the very fact I'm entering is sort of a nod to my background, specifically my wife, who introduced me to TCM and to many, many classic films. So the entire entry is a tribute to her.*

 

*Getting more specific...*

 

*Sunday, February 12th*

 

*We're honoring the efforts of film composers today, all day. We start with Howard Shore ("The Fly"), then an early effort from Alex North ("Viva Zapata!"), and next is Dmitri Tiomkin ("Alice in Wonderland", one of his earliest films), Elmer Bernstein ("Saturday's Hero", his first film), an early effort by James Horner ("The Lady in Red"), then Bernard Hermann ("Jane Eyre" - a change of pace from the Hitchcock scores he's probably best known for), then the first movie John Williams composed for ("Gidget").*

 

*In the evening, we've got a classic John Barry score ("Kng Rat" - there are two James Bond films later this week, otherwise I'd have chosen one of those for Barry), then Jerry Goldsmith's first film ("Flaming Star"), and a classic Ennio Morricone score ("A Fistful of Dollars").*

 

*After midnight, the composers are still celebrated, with Max Steiner's first two films representing the Silent Sunday Nights, and then two classic Russian films featuring Sergei Prokofiev's music for tonight's TCM Imports to end the day.*

 

*Monday, February 13th*

 

*We've got two birthday tributes today. We begin the day by celebrating Oliver Reed, and then we honor Chuck Yeager, who became the first human to break the sound barrier on this day in 1947. Yeager did not appear on screen, but performed some of the aerial stunt work for "Jet Pilot", which seems an approipriate way to honor him.*

 

*Then, we've got a TCM premiere, to honor Charles Schultz, "A Boy Named Charlie Brown", followed by a documentary about him from the same year.*

 

*Finally, we end with our second birthday tribute, this time for Kim Novak. We include an appearence she made on "What's My Line" in 1956, where she's creditred as "Mystery Guest #2".*

 

*Tuesday, February 14th*

 

*We've got another two birthday tributes today. The first is for an acresss who will forever be known as Miss Moneypenny, Lois Maxwell. And we have to include a Bond film (the second one filmed, "From Russia With Love").*

 

*Then we celebrate Gregory Hines with three film to honor his birthday.*

 

*After that, we devote the rest of the day to honoring the patenting of the telephone by Alexander Graham Bell. Most of these films are somewhat dark, but we've got one romantic film in honor of Valentine's Day ("Bells Are Ringing"). "Pillow Talk" would have fit well today, but it's scheduled for later in the week.*

 

*Wednesday, February 15th*

 

*Yet more birthdays - in the morning it's Claire Bloom, with four films to honor her.*

 

*Then, to note the founding of the city of St. Louis, we've got "Meet Me in St. Louis" (there's no way I can not include that one here!), along with a Mae West film set in St. Louis, and a 1904 short with footage of the St. Louis Exhibition that we also see in "Meet Me..."*

 

*And the rest of the evening is dedicated to Cesar Romero. I had to include the Adam West Batman, for Romero's classic Joker tonight. We've also got another classic television episode, Romero's "Passport to Danger".*

 

*Thursday, February 16th*

 

*This is the day that's all about me!*

 

*"I Claudius" has a connection for me in that it was written by Robert Graves, who lived in and is buried in the town of Deia on the island of Mallorca, where I had one of the best experiences of my life as a volunteer on an archaelogical dig. It also happens that this parciualr episode (the first of the series) aired on my birthday, September 20th.*

 

*"The Shout" was also written by Graves, and so I picked it for the same reason noted above.*

 

*"For All Mankind" is a fantastic documentary about the Apollo moon landings. I'm a nut for the space program, and, also, the first landing happened in the year of my birth, 1969.*

 

*"Lost in Yonkers" relates to me because that's the city I grew up in.*

 

*"Wall Street" is set in New York, and Michael Douglas also has a connection to Mallorca (he's got a house there, he donated money to help pay for the dig I worked on, and on one of my trips there, we met one of his servants in the local pub!). Plus, it's a great film.*

 

*The Dick Van Dyke show was set in New Rochelle, NY, which is where I lived in my teens. This particular episode reatires Rob having to go to Washington, DC for business, which relates to me because that's where I live and work now (well, the DC Metro Area, anyway)*

 

*"Air Force One" has a specific meaning for me - the opening scenes were filmed on the campus of my college, Case Western Reserve University. You can see Severance Hall (where I had my freshman orientation), the Thwing Center student union, and the main campus library (where I worked all four years at college). It's not actually all that great besides that, but I had to include it anyway.*

 

*"Love Me Tender" is my and my wife's wedding song, and we were married at the Chapel in the Woods at Graceland.*

 

*Finally, "Marty" is a film I very much relate to - I'm a lot like Marty, shy, late-blooming, Italian-American. And it's also just a great movie.*

 

*And then we shift gears to our Star of the Month, Thelma Ritter, for the rest of the evening. We include another classic TV episode, this time Wagon Train, with Thelma in a guest-starring role.*

 

*Friday, February 17th*

 

*Today, all day, 24 hours, we celebrate production designer Ken Adam, He's probably best-known for his work on the James Bond films, but he's worked on far more than that.*

 

*The highlight of the day is what I think is a TCM premiere (which is hard for me to believe, but I couldn't find any evidence of it airing previously), "Barry Lyndon".*

 

*Adam's work continues on TCM Underground with two of his earliest films, and we end the day with his work on the Sherlock Holmes story "The Seven Percent Solution"*

 

*Saturday, February 18th*

 

*We begin the day by honoring the birthday of Adolphe Menjou. After four films celebrating him, we turn to a big event of the day - the first test flight of the space shuttle Enterprise.*

 

*"Midway", of course, features the heroic exploits of the aircraft carrier Enterprise.*

 

*Then, we air the original, unaired pilot of Star Trek ("The Cage", which features Captain Pike rather than Captain Kirk).*

 

*In the evening, we've got our Essentials pick, "Bell, Book and Candle".*

 

*Then, to end the week, we celebrate one last birthday, Jack Palance.*

 

*Whew!*

Everyone seems to have enjoyed Lonesome Polecat's challenge to honor the talented artists who work behind the screen. Sunny, congratulations on your first schedule! Don't let it be your last. You included a lot of fine films.

 

I'm not surprised--but am delighted--that countessdelave called our attention to some grand costume designers. It was good to hear which films inspired her own work.

 

Filmlover, what a great idea to salute the films excerpted in *That's Entertainment*. Who would have thought they would fill five days of programming?

 

Fedya, I loved the What's in a Name? theme. You'd think that someone born Murvyn Vye, Jr. would go into show biz simply to get rid of that name! Another really fun entry.

 

It's going to time some time and thought to choose a favorite.

>

> 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.

{quote:title=kingrat wrote:}{quote}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*.

SCHEDULE #5: filmlover

 

{quote:title=filmlover wrote:}{quote}{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.

{quote:title=Fedya wrote:}{quote}NOTES ON A SCHEDULE

 

This week's schedule asks the question, "What's in a name?" (Or, in some cases, what isn't in a name.) The question is obviously answered in a whole bunch of different ways. First up, on Sunday morning, we have a couple of movies with characters who can't remember their names or who can't be identified by the police. That's followed by a series of movies where we obviously know the names of the people right from the title. (I would like to have included *My Name is Julia Ross* here, but at only 65 minutes, I couldn't get it to time out properly.)

 

That's followed on Sunday night by a series of movies in living color -- every color of the rainbow. Well, not the trendy colors like loden or heather that you find in catalogs. They didn't have colors like that when they were making classic films. Come to think of it, they didn't have much color at all back then.

 

Lonesome Polecat said we could use classic TV in our schedule, so I decided to use it in a tangential way, by including a series of movies that have the titles of later TV shows, but in which the movie and TV show have nothing in common.

 

The movie *The Naked City* was more or less the inspiration for the later TV show of the same name, but there's precious little nudity in the movie. (Thankfully: we don't want to see Barry Fitzgerald naked.) There are only a couple of bedrooms in *Ten Thousand Bedrooms*, and no chariots in *Chariots of Fire*. (And the only fire is the Olympic flame.)

 

Some months back, I was watching a 1930s WB movie on TCM and noticed that the screenplay was written by "F. Hugh Herbert". I wondered if that was a mistake and it shouldn't have been Hugh Herbert, and wondered why I never knew that the character actor also wrote screenplays. It turns out, of course, that the two are completely different people. (At least, I think they are. Has anybody ever seen the two of them together?) Six movies for which F. Hugh Herbert wrote the screenplay have Hugh Herbert in the cast, and there's a seventh in which F. Hugh Herbert wrote "additional dialog". All seven of them neatly fit into the 10 hours of a TCM prime time lineup. F. Hugh Herbert also fits the part of the Challenge that requires a look at somebody behind the scenes.

 

Moving to Tuesday, we get four people who go by hyphenated names followed by four people who, like the aforementioned F. Hugh Herbert, generally got screen credit as their first initial followed by a middle name and a family name. That's followed on Tuesday night by people who went one better and used two initials followed by a family name. (Or three, in the case of IAL Diamond.)

 

Costume designers commonly received credit under one name: Adrian, Renié, and Irene come to mind. But there were movies in which people doing other things also went by only one name. Alida Valli shows up in the credits to *The Third Man* only as Valli, while Frank De Vol shows up as "DeVol" sans space in some of his movies. This is also the day when we find out whether "Travilla" is a man, a woman, a company, or one of Austin Powers' fembots.

 

While there were some people who went under one name, there were others who went by three names. It seemed obvious to pair the two, although I probably should have found a way to include Van Nest Polglase (whom I was thinking of using in a different programming block as well).

 

That's followed by the Star of the Month. How could I come up with a Star of the Month under the general theme of "What's in a Name"? I decided to pick one whose name was the punchline to jokes. George Raft is an obvious one, with his name being parodied in the Warner Bros. animated short *The Coo-Coo Nut Grove* (or is it*Hollywood Steps Out* ?) If you've seen the shorts, you'll know what the joke is. Even if you haven't it should be obvious.

 

On Thursday morning we have some people where it's not quite clear which name is the first name and which is the last. I wanted to use Norman Lloyd's brother Nolan Lloyd, but time constraints prevented that. Thursday afternoon sees people with odd names where, as best I have been able to figure out, these names weren't given to the stars by the studio bosses. Murvyn Vye, in fact, is Murvyn Vye, Jr., so we know how he got that terrible name.

 

On Thursday night, we have six people who you can tell by looking at them whether they're men or women. But you can't necessarily tell it from their names in the credits. Two Jeans, two Genes, and two Lees.

 

I probably should have tried to include the classic TV salute with Friday's lineup, since those movie titles are ones you shouldn't confuse with the TV shows. But there were so many movie pairs with close but not matching titles that I could fill the whole morning and afternoon, while still omitting pairs (*The Young In Heart* followed by*Young At Heart*, for example).

 

The name Schürzinger isn't terribly common even in Germany. Some Schürzingers (such as my grandfather) emigrated to America, and thanks to that umlaut over the U, the name got transliterated upon arrival to America. There are Schirtzingers out there, as well as Scherzingers and Schuerzingers. And then there's Victor Schertzinger. I'm not 100% certain that we're distant cousins, but I do know that there are variant spellings who are distantly related to each other. So, we have four of his movies, if only because it took that many to get the night to time out properly.

 

The Friday night Underground movies aren't necessarily movies that have to be relegated to the overnight, but just obscure enough and with wacky enough titles that I'd like to see them programmed.

 

On Saturday, we have several people who went under two names, and are credited under the lesser-known name. (Victor Seastrom may be an exception; I think most people would recognize Harry Morgan from his days on Dragnet or as Col. Potter onMASH and not when he was going by "Henry".) That's followed by some characters who were known under two different names. Finally are a bunch of movies that have been known under two different names. I used the names you're less likely to recognize only to see how many of these movies you all actually recognize, starting with Billy Wilder's essential *The Big Carnival*. They are real pictures, and the production information listed is accurate, so you should be able to look them up if you don't recognize them.

*SCHEDULE #7: Sunny75*

 

Sunny's Notes:

 

{quote:title=Sunny75 wrote:}{quote}{font:Times New Roman} {font}{font:Calibri}Notes on the schedule by Sunny75:{font}

 

{font:Calibri}First of all, hats off to LonesomePolecat for a terrific challenge.This was a lot of fun to put together, and I learned a lot while I was doing it, too. I am thrilled about the In the Background challenge, because movies are such a collaborative process. If even one artist in a great movie had been different, the resulting movie would have been quite changed. I could not stop with one In the Background artist, though, so I settled for four, two relating to the sound of the movies, and two relating to the visual aspects of the movies.{font}

 

 

{font:Calibri}My overall theme for the week is Music, Music, Music, and many of my blocks of movies have a theme reflected in the title of a song, including the song Happy Birthday.{font}

 

 

{font:Calibri}I start with a birthday tribute to one of my favorite character actors, Eric Blore, culminating with my favorite Eric Blore role, the invaluable manservant Bates in TOP HAT.{font}

 

 

{font:Calibri}Eric Blore was valet to Edward Everett Horton in TOP HAT, so I segue to a couple of fine and fun movies with EEH as a supporting player.{font}

 

 

{font:Calibri}Next is another song title, Men in Tights, and the two very best movies ever made about men in tights.{font}

 

 

{font:Calibri}For Silent Sunday and the TCM Import, I chose two of the most visually stunning movies I have ever seen.{font}

 

 

{font:Calibri}All day Monday, December 24, falls under the theme song, The Sound of Music, with birthday tributes to two great musical talents who were both so prolific that I used each of them as In the Background artists. I start, though, with three movies which came out in 1943 and which each had a song nominated for an Oscar, but none of which won. The movies and their nominated songs are as follows:{font}

 

 

{font:Calibri}SOMETHING TO SHOUT ABOUT You d Be So Nice to Come Home To{font}

 

 

{font:Calibri}STAR SPANGLED RHYTHM That Old Black Magic{font}

 

 

{font:Calibri}CABIN IN THE SKY Happiness Is a Thing Called Joe{font}

 

 

{font:Calibri}A bit of trivia about SOMETHING TO SHOUT ABOUT is that Cyd Charisse made her feature movie debut in that movie, billed as Lily Norwood.{font}

 

 

{font:Calibri}Now you know some of the songs which lost at the Oscars that year, so which song won? From HELLO, FRISCO, HELLO the song is You'll Never Know, which was written by birthday celebration guy Harry Warren. And that brings us to his birthday tribute, and my first In the Background spotlight. Warren wrote one or more songs for each of the movies in his lineup. The songs he wrote for each movie are as follows:{font}

 

 

{font:Calibri}HELLO, FRISCO, HELLO You'll Never Know{font}

 

 

{font:Calibri}GOLD DIGGERS OF 1935 Lullaby of Broadway{font}

 

 

{font:Calibri}THE HARVEY GIRLS On the Atchison, Topeka and the Santa Fe{font}

 

 

{font:Calibri}AN AFFAIR TO REMEMBER Title song{font}

 

 

{font:Calibri}42ND STREET 42ND Street, Shuffle Off to Buffalo{font}

 

 

{font:Calibri}You re Getting {font}{font:Calibri}to be a Habit with Me{font}

 

 

{font:Calibri}On the Atchison, Topeka and the Santa Fe won Warren another Oscar.{font}

 

 

{font:Calibri}We have not one but two musicians celebrating their birthday on December 24, the other being Franz Waxman, who is also my second In the Background artist. For the evening and all through the night we have a variety of movies whose scores were written by Waxman. Scores by Waxman are so wonderful that I remember the tunes, even without words, long after the movie is over. Waxman won Oscars two years in a row for SUNSET BLVD and A PLACE IN THE SUN. The American Film Institute ranked the score for SUNSET BLVD number 16 on their list of the greatest film scores, and all the scores scheduled for tonight and overnight were nominated for that list. This includes THE BRIDE OF FRANKENSTEIN, the first score by Waxman for an American movie, after five years of writing scores for European movies.{font}

 

 

{font:Calibri}Tuesday, Christmas Day; what can I say? I love Christmas, and I love movies that tie in to the holiday. The movies scheduled during the daytime hours are most directly related to Christmas, but even the movies scheduled at night and overnight have scenes set at Christmas.{font}

 

 

{font:Calibri}Wednesday, Dec. 26, we start with another birthday tribute to a character actor, this time to Elisha Cook, Jr., who played in everything from musicals to westerns to dramas, but whose type-cast role seemed to be the two bit hood. The movie PIGSKIN PARADE not only has Cook playing a radical, it also has the feature movie debut of Judy Garland. THEY WON’T FORGET and THE KILLING spotlight Cook in the kind of roles he played most often, the sinister weakling. A more sympathetic role for Cook came in SHANE, which begins my Challenge No. 1, Getting to Know You.{font}

 

 

{font:Calibri}Here is why I chose these movies to tell about myself. Although I am from the Eastern US and have lived there all my life, I love the natural beauty of the American west, and particularly northwestern Wyoming, where SHANE was filmed. I am also a big fan of Brandon de Wilde, a child actor who successfully made the transition to adult roles, but whose life was tragically cut short by an automobile accident. I spent my entire adult life working as a civilian at various Navy facilities, so FOLLOW THE FLEET was a logical choice. I also love musicals with Astaire and Rogers. My father is a minister, and I grew up near where I’D CLIMB THE HIGHEST MOUNTAIN was filmed. There were a lot of parallels, and some big differences, between my life growing up and what was portrayed in that movie.And I love music, as you have probably guessed from some of my other comments, so I chose THE SOUND OF MUSIC. I love to sing, but I have to admit I am no Julie Andrews.{font}

 

 

{font:Calibri}Brush up Your Shakespeare{font}

 

 

{font:Calibri}The Zeffirelli version of ROMEO AND JULIET is my favorite movie version of this play, and I do not understand why TCM does not show it more often. The Zeffirelli version of THE TAMING OF THE SHREW is great fun and I think Liz Taylor was terrific. I really debated about HENRY V; I love the Branagh version, and much prefer it to the 1945 version, because of the way the battle scenes are opened up in the Branagh version. And when Branagh gives his St. Crispin Day speech, he moves me so much I want to enlist to fight. The movie is the newest in my schedule, though, and I like my classic movies well aged. Still, I like this version better than the Olivier version, which is clearly a classic, so I guess that makes the Branagh version a classic, too. If there are any who disagree, the Olivier version is almost exactly the same length and could be substituted in this time slot without any other change to the schedule. HAMLET speaks for itself.{font}

 

 

{font:Calibri}Thursday, December 26{font}

 

 

{font:Calibri}I wanted to do an In the Background celebration of a cinematographer, and THE SEARCHERS is a visual knockout, so I looked up its cinematographer and learned about Winton Hoch. I had no idea what other movies he had done until I checked his filmography. What a wonderful surprise. Hoch had many successes with John Ford, including two Oscars for THE QUIET MAN and SHE WORE A YELLOW RIBBON. Hoch also had many successes with other directors, as evidenced by A STAR IS BORN, the 1954 version, and THE SUNDOWNERS. Hoch also won his first Oscar for a Victor Fleming movie. I included MR ROBERTS to show that great cinematography is not dependent on great scenery.{font}

 

 

{font:Calibri}For My Star of the Month, I chose Ronald Colman. I do not think he has ever been SOM before, which surprises me. He certainly had the talent, as well as the filmography. For tonight, the focus is on Romantic Ronald Colman. So of course, I had to start with A TALE OF TWO CITIES, where Colman gives his life to ensure the happiness of the woman he loves. How romantic. Next we have THE PRISONER OF ZENDA, where Colman gives up the woman he loves out of honor. Lest you think the guy has to lose the girl to be romantic, we have my alltime favorite, RANDOM HARVEST, which ends happily ever after, and LOST HORIZONS, which ends happily even longer ever after. We end Ronald Colman night with a little romantic fluff, THE UNHOLY GARDEN. By the way, for the other weeks, you could have Rascally Ronald Colman, with Raffles, Kismet, The Man Who Broke the Bank at Monte Carlo and If I Were King; Righteous Ronald Colman, with Talk of the Town, Bulldog Drummond, Clive of India and The Late George Apley; and Remarkable Ronald Colman, with A Double Life, Champagne for Caesar, Lady Windemeres Fan and Under Two Flags. TCM Programmers, take note, and give us Ronald Colman as SOM.{font}

 

 

{font:Calibri}Friday, December 28, is the anniversary of the beginning of the Seminole War against white settlers, and the Friday schedule starts with DISTANT DRUMS, a movie about the Seminole Wars. This is the beginning of a day where we look at the Southern United States as it has been depicted in films set mostly in the twentieth century. I am not going to go through my rationale for each movie; I just wanted high quality movies that portrayed the South lovingly but honestly, showing both the good and the bad, since every place has both.{font}

 

 

{font:Calibri}For the evening, our theme song is Bens Song. This is the only time I ever heard of a song being written about and to a four legged rat. I am excluding Jerry the Mouse, of course. Anyhow, the Ben in my lineup is the wonderful Ben Johnson, and I have three movies featuring this great guy. First is RIO GRANDE, which has Johnson playing the kind of role he was most known for, and which shows off his riding abilities, since he started out as a rodeo rider. Next is MIGHTY JOE YOUNG, one of the very few movies in which Johnson has top male billing. Finally comes THE LAST PICTURE SHOW, for which Johnson won an Oscar.{font}

 

 

{font:Calibri}Then for TCM Underground, what better movie than BEN, the one that made Bens Song famous? And if loving a four legged rat is not MAD LOVE, I do not know what is. Then Peter Lorre helps us segue into the Saturday Murder, Mystery and Mayhem set with THANK YOU, MR. MOTO.{font}

 

 

{font:Calibri}Saturday, I started with the best of the B mystery movies, then moved to the best of B westerns. How I love those singing cowboys. After a couple of better or Boetticher westerns, and one more movie for the kids, I get to do my last In the Background challenge, which is Gowns, Fashions and Costumes by Adrian.{font}

 

 

{font:Calibri}I just love designs by Adrian, and Adrian was actually the first person In the Background whom I thought of spotlighting. I wanted to include THE WOMEN in the Adrian segment, though, and I also wanted to use THE WOMEN as my TCM Essential. So, while Adrian was the artist I thought of first, his block of films appears last on my schedule, beginning with the TCM Essential movie, THE WOMEN.By the way, that movie includes a knockout fashion show, and Adrian also designed the fashion show, with separate billing in the credits. Similarly, in THE GREAT ZIEGFELD, there is a Fashion Parade, and Adrian designed that Fashion Parade, with separate billing, as well as the beautiful gowns of the two Mrs. Ziegfelds and the costumes of the Ziegfeld girls. ZIEGFELD GIRL was a logical followon behind THE GREAT ZIEGFELD. I have never compared the costumes from the two Ziegfeld movies, but it would be interesting to do so, since they are both MGM movies, made only a few years apart, and they have the same director and the same costume designer. And to get back to my original rationale for my choices, just remember the stunning gowns worn by Harlow, and even Marie Dressler, in DINNER AT EIGHT.{font}

 

 

{font:Calibri}Well, there are my reasons for the movies I chose. Kudos again to LonesomePolecat for a really fun challenge.{font}

*Programming Notes: Challenge #20*

*Week of May 27-June 2, 2012*

 

*Sunday.* The “Talking Heads” theme is all about ventriloquists and their dummies. I was particularly delighted to be able to use one of the great classic tv episodes of *The Twilight Zone: The Dummy*, with Cliff Robertson. The evening is about my background although I hardly think that this will lead to understanding me, other than superficially. *Rebecca of Sunnybrook Farm* is because I grew up with Shirley Temple films and used to enter a lot of movie trivia contests on the radio. *The Women* is a very influential film. That, *Top Hat* and *Kitty Foyle* inspired me to a career in costume design. I also have a life-long admiration for Costume Designer Adrian because of *The Women*.

My Silent Sunday Night pick is *Way Down East*, the first silent film that I saw in a theater with my dad. *The Emigrants* is my pick for TCM Import because all four of my grandparents came from Sweden. *Private Screenings with Jane Powell* and the Doris Day short represent the actresses who starred in films introduced to me by my mother. I particularly remember *By the Light of the Silvery Moon* and *The West Point Story*.

 

*Monday.* Monday the 28th is Memorial Day. I wanted to do something different to memorialize the day The first half focuses on people who try/want to forget their troubles or their past. The title of this theme is based upon the title of a song by Rogers and Hart. “ I Did What Last Night?!” is about people who try to remember what they forgot.

 

 

*Tuesday.* It’s actress Iris Adrian’s 100th birthday. I love this actress, who usually played “tough broads” with great comic aplomb. I often peruse the various lists of birthdays and dates in history before I pick a week to program. Something usually catches my eye. This time it was the 100 year anniversary of the firing of fifteen female employees, of Curtis Publishing, for doing the Turkey Trot on their lunch break. How peculiar an anniversary, I thought. “Too Hot to Trot” is my response. These are all films based in the ragtime era, featuring dancing. *Hello, Frisco, Hello* includes one of the unique and popular fad dances of the day: the Grizzly Bear. Vernon and Irene Castle popularized many of the dances of this era.

 

 

*Wednesday.* “Nightclub Entertainers on the Lam” is self-explanatory but I particularly wanted to schedule two old favorites: *Girl on the Run* and *She Loves Me Not*. The former was actually made as a pilot for *77 Sunset Strip*. It was subsequently released into theaters. *She Loves Me Not* is one of my favorite early Bing Crosby films and I love Miriam Hopkins as a nightclub dancer who hides out in Bing’s dormitory (as a male). My SOTM is Dorothy Lamour. This block of films focuses on Dorothy as a nightclub performer. The wee hours usher in Barbara Pepper’s 100th birthday with films featuring her in nightclubs. Barbara Pepper and Iris Adrian both celebrate 100th birthdays this week and both tended to be cast in “tough broad” roles. Today, most people might best remember Barbara Pepper as Mrs Ziffel on the *Green Acres* show.

.

 

 

*Thursday.* Each of the big studios had a distinctive look to their films. You could often identify a studio by the style of their films. As we are focusing on a lot of background talents and artisans, I chose Paramount as one studio whose films had a unique look to them. I think of the Lubitsch films and the Von Sternberg/Dietrich films but there were many great talents who helped achieve Paramount’s style: Costumer Travis Banton, Set Designer Hans Dreier, Cinematographers Bert Glennon, Ted Tezlaff, Victor Milner, and many others. Even Adolph Zukor was a former furrier and Paramount was known for it’s extravagant use of fur. My spotlight on the background talents behind films is on songwriters Harry Revel and Mack Gordon. Much of their early work was done at Paramount. Later, they went to Fox and then went their separate ways, forming new professional partnerships with other songwriters. They wrote many standards like “Did You Ever See a Dream Walking?”, “Underneath the Harlem Moon”, and many of the songs from Shirley Temple films.

 

 

*Friday.* One of the biggest influences in the lives of the Baby Boomer generation is Dr. Benjamin Spock. His books influenced the way infants and children were raised for decades. This line-up of films is a tribute to the subject of babies and child-rearing during the baby boom years. And, for a special treat, I’ve thrown in a classic episode of *Star Trek: Journey to Babel* (in which we first see Mr. Spock and his parents). A few weeks ago, I attended a live appearance and screening of 1956’s *The Bad Seed*. Yes, Patty McCormack was there. A few clips from her film and television work were shown. I couldn’t get *The Mini Skirt Mob* out of my mind. I chose to use it as my TCM Underground selection and schedule an evening of Patty’s work.

 

 

*Saturday.* “Frustration Theater” has the first episode of several different serials. There are no showings of future episodes. Thus, the frustration of no resolution of plot. Hedda Hopper and Johnny Weissmuller both share June 2nd as their birthday. My Essential is *The Seven Year Itch*. It’s been on my list as a potential Essential for a while. I include it as part of an evening’s theme of “Unmentionables”. Yesterday, I noticed that Filmlover also used it as an Essential but our themes are so different, that I chose to keep it. I was pleased to be able to sandwich it between two interesting films: *Reap The Wild Wind* and *The Awful Truth*. Who can forget Joyce Compton in that nightclub solo?

Hi, LP,

 

Thanks for being a great host! I think you did a wonderful job.

 

And I wanted to get this in before any votes are cast...

 

I have had the opportunity to moderate at least two Challenges in the past, so I would like it if no one cast a vote for my schedule. I would like someone else to have the honor of moderating a Challenge. This isn't to say you can't gush and enthuse over my schedule in print here; I am always open to bald-faced flattery.

 

Good luck, all!!!

BetteDavis19 -

The only Bette Davis Movie I saw in the schedules is in Kingrat's:

Wednesday, July 11

6:00 am - THE LITTLE FOXES (1940). BW-115m. Goldwyn. D: William Wyler. w/Bette Davis, Herbert Marshall. p/s

 

filmlover -

Your schedule was quite wonderful and it obviously was much work to line up all the movies from the one movie. I thought also that your Fu Manchurian day was inspired and contained excellent movies. The only good thing of your bowing out is that it is now only a six-way tie instead of a sever-way tie after my initial appraisal. Perhaps this will mean I will be able to retain 1/7 of my sanity trying to decide which which way to vote.

IT's really difficult to choose - everyone's schedule is so good!

 

 

At least it's a little easier, with two that have taken themselves out of the voting, and I can't vote for mself, so I only have five to select from:

 

 

Looking at those five:

 

 

CountessDelave - I love "the world according to Spock" and especially the classic Star Trek episode in there! The songwriter tribute is great, and I think your "memory" themes for Memorial Day are fantastic

 

 

Sunny75 - Your Christmas Day is great - and including "A Christmas Story" just puts it over the top for me. My wife will thank you for making Ronald Colman your SOTM! ANd the music all week long is a treat.

 

 

Fedya - YOur clever use of names - that's fantastic. I think the salute to classic TV is my favorite bit

 

 

filmlover - your idea is flat-out brilliant. I can't imagine how difficult it was to compile that list of everything shown in "That's Entertainment!"

 

 

kingrat - I especially like the tribute to cinematographers. And the French-themed Saturday is a great way to end the week!

 

 

skimpole - you get points right off the bat for including Miyazaki. You get extra points for "Russian Ark". You would have gotten triple points for putting "The Sorrow and the Pity" directly before or after "Annie Hall", but at least it's in the same week! And another schedule that ends the week thinking Frenchly - very nice!

 

 

sansfin - I love your festival of festivals! I'm not even sure which is my favorite - "the Cons", "merchant of Venice" or Werner von Braun!

 

 

As for my vote...well, I would definitely have voted for filmlover - building the whole week around "That's Entertainment" is just too good not to vote for. But I can't, so my vote goes to skimpole. I feel bad picking one over the rest; everyone's schedule is so good!

Wow. What a great lineup. As far as I'm concerned, every entry is a winner. I hope the TCM programmers are reading these entries.

 

 

Countessdelave, I really enjoyed your Memorial Day lineup; both the Easy to Remember and the I Did WHAT? blocks contained memorable movies. I agree with you that THE SEVEN YEAR ITCH is an Essential movie. And I enjoyed the lineup of other movies related to Unmentionables. You slipped a lot of good movies into that part of the schedule.

 

 

Fedya, your whole approach to Names as your weekly theme is a real hoot! I also really liked your slant on TCM's Salute to Classic TV. I liked so many of the movies you chose, all throughout the week. And "Seen This One Before" was a lot of fun, trying to remember or figure out the alternate name for each movie (it also introduced me to the Quatermass series, which looks very intriguing.)

 

 

filmlover, your whole week's schedule was very creative. Of course, everyone is impressed with your using all the movies from That's Entertainment, but I think your Titanic anniversary series was equally as creative. I also liked your In My Background section, and I'm so glad you chose Verna Field as your In the Background artist. And the films you chose were the very best to showcase her talents. Great choices. I also agree with your choice as TCM Essential.

 

 

kingrat, Yours is another schedule where I liked many movies throughout the week. You jumped off with a bang, with your Q movies, and never let up. I also enjoyed your picks for Growing Up in the South and your choice of cinematographers as stars of the month. Seeing some of their career evolutions was fun. I also enjoyed your notes, which really resonated with me.

 

 

skimpole, your Wednesday lineup is terrific, as is Thursday afternoon and evening. I especially salute you for selecting SHOAH, which is clearly a classic movie, but which is aired very seldom, probably due to its length. TCM should be bold and program SHOAH. And I agree that James Mason would make an excellent Star of the Month.

 

 

JamesinArlington, I particularly enjoyed your tribute to composers, especially your choice of debut or early film scores as opposed to their more well-known works. The Chuck Yeager tribute was cool. The telephone movies were a good block; wonder why so many classic movies about phones are dark? And thank you for choosing Thelma Ritter, one of my favorite actresses, as SOM. She really deserves it.

 

 

SansFin, I loved your whole idea of film festival tributes, and I enjoyed so many of them...the Con FF, the Irving Berlin FF, the Merchant of Venice FF, and even the Festival of Experiments. Yours was another lineup where I saw movies listed all week that I love to see in the TCM schedule. And I absolutely agree with you that LAURA is an Essential movie. What a great schedule.

 

 

With so many terrific schedules, I need more time to think about which one I'm voting for. Again, my congratulations to everyone who contributed an entry; they're all outstanding.

You're all to be congratulated on your great work. You'd think after so many challenges that the ideas would be pretty thin, but you just keep getting better and better!

 

And congrats to LonesomePolecat for creating and running a great challenge.

Wow, what a great set of schedules. And, as always, it is hard to select...but I just noticed that we're almost down to 24 hours and counting (well, actually, since we're gaining an extra hour tonight, make that 25...), so I have to vote!!!

 

Argghh! It's like being on Restaurant Row, I want to get some from this place, some from thiat one, and some from the two places across the street!!! Dang! They are all so enticing.

 

But since I have to cast my ballot, it foes to the one that had the greatest number of things in it I would like to see in a week: salutes to Eric Blore, Franz Waxman, Elisha Cook, Jr,, Shakespeare, Ronald Colman, and Ben Johnson, plus Sunrise, The Court Jester, and Christmas movies. So, Sunny75 gets my vote this time around.

I posted in the original thread of what I liked in each schedule.

 

To come down to the wire it was hard to ignore skimpole's Bastille Day selection or countessdelave's nightclub themes.

 

I find I must vote for *kingrat* for having more movies I wish to see.

 

I congratulate all the entrants for their excellent work. I thank LonesomePolecat for setting a wonderful challenge!
