It was wonderful to see Olivia De Havilland on 60 Minutes tonight. If you haven't seen it yet, don't miss it. It's during Morley Safer's second installment of his interview with author David McCullough.

 

McCullough asks De Havilland what brought her to Paris, and she smiles and says so coyly, "A Frenchman!"

Did you buy your pass yet SueSue?

 

You might want to hold off because we here in California are thinking of not letting Texans into the state after they've seceeded from the Union.

http://abclocal.go.com/ktrk/story?section=news/state&id=8884391

 

Otherwise if we do let Texans into California, I've also heard that the tourist visa for Texans will be expensive. (We've got a budget to balance, doncha know.)

Well, Kyle, you have an excellent point, there. It is indeed part of our Texas Constitution, but I think there are some folks who are about 150 years too late. And with our booming job market, and large industrial complexes, I don't think Uncle Sam wants to part with us just yet.

 

As for the California tourist visa/LA passport, I am well aware of the California cash crunch. The bite out of my budget increases every time I step over the state line!

 

In the meantime, if you know any legislators who can help facilitate my travel plans, I will indeed be grateful. :)

80,000 Texans have signed this petition in the past week! You need to talk to your unhappy neighbors. But I do agree that it will be as successful as the Battle Of The Alamo.

 

*"...if you know any legislators who can help facilitate my travel plans, I will indeed be grateful."*

 

No legislators. But if you can get into Mexico, I know a coyote that sneak you into California for the weekend.

I like the fact that there is a petition to revoke the citizenship of everyone who signs a petition to secede. This is obviously a "Hot Topic" among the government and history professors where I teach.

Did I hear someone mention Texas and politics? I'm in!!!

 

Unfortunately, Rick Perry's divorce from the secession movement means I'll never get to see him perp walked out to a police car. Now, that would be a cinematic journey worth seeing!!

David, don't get me started on the "virtues" of the drugstore cowboy. I might never come back to the topic of the thread, our hallowed Turner Classic Movies Film Festival...I predict someone will start a new thread. Oops. No politics, please! :)

Agreed! And if Barbra Streisand and Omar Sharif appear at the opening night gala for *Funny Girl* , Spotlight passholders won't be disappointed if they attend the *Vanity Fair* party, too. Maybe this year photos of the *Vanity Fair* party might actually be showcased in *Vanity Fair* magazine.

 

I hope James Brolin shows up, too! ;)

 

And as long as we are speculating about Barbra Streisand's appearance at the Turner Classic Film Festival 2013, passholders might want to read James Grissom's pre-publication blog entry for November 13, *Follies of God.* Tennesse Williams waxes and wanes about Streisand's artistry and talent, and the implications and responsibility of the truly gifted: http://jamesgrissom.blogspot.com/

Fellow passholders trying to contact me at the Classic Film Union: I have received your messages, but cannot access the CFU website this evening. You can send me a private message on the Message Boards if you need to contact me tomorrow. For some reason, the CFU is down. Thanks!

Follow this link (originally posted by Araner1973 as a youtube link in the Hot Topics Thread)in the TCM Media Room: http://www.tcm.com/mediaroom/video/567062/TCM-Remembers-2012-TCM-Original-.html

 

According to Kyle in Hollywood's post on the Hot Topics Thread entitled TCM REMEMBERS, it might possibly be shown tonight sometime before *My Fair Lady,* and it's always nicer to see it on our favorite channel. :-)

 

POSSIBLE SPOILERS:

 

 

The new TCM REMEMBERS 2012 is one of the most all-encompassing montages ever created, and includes performers from all categories of the entertainment business. It is lovely, and the theme is "Scenes From a Drive-In." Ann Rutherford is featured in a beautifully dramatic clip, and Michael Clarke Duncan relishing a "flicker show," as well as a dramatic last goodbye from TCM Festival and Cruise guest Ernest Borgnine, while shooting stars fly across a deep, midnight blue sky. It is simply one of the loveliest and most thorough compilations ever aired to celebrate the lives of our favorite performers, and includes Whitney Houston, Ben Gazzara, Phyllis Diller, Andy Williams, and many others who spent their lives in front of and behind the camera. The song is "Wait" by M83 and was filmed in Atlanta, Georgia, at the historic Starlight Drive-In.

 

 

Kudos to TCM staff, editors, writers, and crew for a stunning tribute.

After a December announcement in 2011, the next scheduled update occurred on January 31, 2012. So our next announcement for the Turner Classic Movies Film Festival 2013 might not be until the end of January of 2013. Enjoy all the holiday fare on our favorite channel, Turner Classic Movies!

 

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
