The 22nd TCM PROGRAMMING CHALLENGE: HAIL COLUMBIA

91 posts in this topic

Wow! I see that there are two more schedules posted. I haven't looked at them yet but congrats to aimalac and filmlover for posting them. I will be reading them tonight and tomorrow.

 

Also, audreyforever, I'm so glad that you're working on a schedule and I do know what you mean about the compromises one has to make during the creation of one. It's frustrating sometimes and I'm very empathetic to what the TCM Programmers have to do each month.

aimalac --

Great schedule!

Love your opening with so many Monogram movies.

I'm not familiar with your choice for Import, but Sophia Loren is always worth watching!

Love the Rosalind Russell tribute.

Interesting that on Thursday you followed the complex and serious D-Day movie with comedies.

I agree completely that The Buccaneer is an Essential!

 

filmlover --

Another great schedule!

I, too, never noticed how many were from Budapest. Great idea to showcase some of them.

Murder Made Merry is an inspired theme, and the movies you chose are perfect for it.

Love your Columbia selections. I Love a Mystery is much under-appreciated.

Your recasting is a great twist!

Always love to see supporting actors getting a nod.

I've always liked Wendy Hiller, but I never considered how many movies she was in.

 

Four great schedules (and mine) so far!

 

Keep 'em coming, folks!

Filmlover, a great schedule as always. Love the remakes. SOLID GOLD CADILLAC would work really well as a drama. Can we get a time machine so we can make the Rat Pack's LOST HORIZON? Crazy how many geniuses were born in Budapest. And Wendy Hiller deserves a spotlight-- very talented lady.

Wow! This message board has really taken the liberty to completely reformat both of my posts. Not sure where the html code came from - at all, and my schedule and notes didn't really have all those spaces either.

I was just getting ready to thank filmlover and aimalac for their terrific schedules, which I finally had the chance to read. And now, there's another schedule by newcomer B-Boop. I will post a separate response when I read your schedule.

 

Aimalac- What a great use of the Columbia shorts (especially at lunchtime) and all of the Leo Gorcey films for your SOTM. You had wonderful D-Day programming too. Great job!

 

 

Filmlover-You had an excellent schedule with so many Columbia shorts and use of the Columbia B's and even Janis Paige. I may even try to catch her show in SF. I laughed at all of your recasting suggestions, from Joan Crawford in Solid Gold Cadillac to the Ray Pack version of Lost Horizon -what a hoot! You are the first to try the optional element of this Challenge. It would be fun to see a few more. Anyone who has finished their schedule may feel inspired to try.

You can edit it if you're quick (the edit option goes away within a day).

 

When you post, there are three tabs you can choose (they're above the box in which you type your message).

 

"Rich Text" does all the html stuff automatically (and not always correctly). The only reason I ever use it is because it has the quote function.

 

"Plain Text" generally renders it exactly as you type it (don't have a space at the beginning of a line, because it'll drop that line).

 

You might try to edit it in Plain Text, removing the extra code and spaces, but the software can be a little wonky as far as changes from something that was originally posted in Rich Text.

B-Boop, what a great job! By the way, welcome to the Challenge. You've done wonderful work and it's so nice to have you join all of us who have been through a few of the Challenges already.

 

You made excellent use of your Columbia titles and the film preservation theme ( which is near and dear to all of us). I have always enjoyed The Dark Mirror, seeing Olivia De Havilland as good and bad twins. Dan Duryea is a really good SOTM. He often didn't get enough credit for great supporting work in films but one always remembered him. Your Underground choice of Chained For Life, the exploitation film of the Hilton sisters' lives is great- a perfect Underground choice. Thanks for joining us.

Sorry it's taken so long for me to get to this, B-BOOP.

 

It's a great schedule!

Highlights --

The tribute to restored/restoration is perfect for TCM.

Your Black and Scarlet has some great movies.

Film Noir! Film Noir! Film Noir!

Love the night of Hitchcock movies.

 

It's an absolutely great and marvelous schedule, and it's incredible it's your first one!

Thanks Countessdelave and Capuchin for the positive comments. Also thanks Capuchin for the tips on editing and formatting. I did not read those in time and it looks as though even if I had I am out of luck anyways as I did begin most of my lines with spaces; all of them except the ones with the time, and I did skip a line between each movie. I tried to follow the format on the TCM monthly schedule and it looks really good as a word.doc - I was horrified to see how it looked when it posted here. But again, thanks to both of you for the positive feedback.

Now that I have my schedule posted, I can look at those that are on here already.

 

Capuchin, I would love a month of Basil Rathbone. I was looking at some early 1930s films of his a few weeks back and was stunned to see he was the romantic lead. It wouldn't be long before he was the diffident or sinister suitor in the background. The Masked Bride sounds fascinating. And great themes on the rest of the days.

 

skimpole, the selection of Japanese movies is terrific. If we only leave ourselves open to films like this, we discover a whole new wonderful universe of filmmaking. Max Von Sydow would be an interesting SOTM. And your Thursday is a fun-filled day of movies.

 

LonesomePolecat, I love, love, love the Dick Van Dyke Show Reunion theme! Excellent Columbia selections, too. I laughed out loud at the Sesame Street Is Brought To You By... idea! What a clever way to bring in films with numbers. And Danny Kaye...I'm there!

 

aimalac, holy freakin' moley, what a selection of Leo Gorcey pictures! As he would say, this honor is a deluge of eloquence that is just perspiring. The Dino day would be fun.

 

B-Boop, who could be unhappy with an evening of film preservaton? Nice choices. I really like Dan Duryea as SOTM, one of the best supporting characters in the 1940s. Interesting selection of circus/sideshow-themed films.

 

Good work, all!

I hope you caught Confession (1937) today with Kay Francis. He's at his best as an elegant worm.

We have just under two full weeks left in the Programming Challenge and already six great schedules have been submitted from: Capuchin, filmlover, Lonesome Polecat, B-Boop, aimalac and skimpole.

 

I do believe that we can expect more. I can't wait! Anyone who is working on on a schedule: please remember that you have until midnight (pacific time) on Monday, September 3rd, to submit your schedule on this thread. And don't forget your accompanying notes. Good luck!

--------------------LP’s Notes: Version 2.0-----------------

 

*CHANGES FOR VERSION 2.0*

Because of an oversight on my part, I scheduled a Fox film called *TALES OF MANHATTAN* as one of my Columbia premieres. Therefore I had until The Deadline to shuffle the Joseph Walker tribute section of my schedule a bit to insert a new Columbia premiere, *WHAT A WOMAN!* I had to change a couple of Joseph Walker films for timing reasons. (Don’t ask me which ones, I forget, since Joseph Walker made way too many amazing classic movies to keep track of.) Then *TALES OF MANHATTAN* sounded so interesting and a few people mentioned they wanted it shown on TCM, so I took advantage of my SOTM George Sanders’ presence in the film and made *TALES OF MANHATTAN* the Essentials (so I could get an extra premiere in there), thus bumping *LURED* down in the schedule and *HANGOVER SQUARE* out. Other than that, the schedule is exactly the same as posted previously, since it would have felt like cheating to go crazy improving the schedule I first posted. Sorry about all that, mates! Carry on

 

NOTE: If you have read these notes the first time I posted them, there is almost no difference from here on out

 

*CELEBRATING THE LLOYD BRIDGES & DANNY KAYE CENTENNIALS*

Can you believe I found a week with TWO classic movie star centennials? Not just one, but two! Both Lloyd Bridges and Danny Kaye turn 100 this week in January 2013. Both are completely awesome in completely different ways. So I just had to pick this week. It was too good to pass up. Danny Kaye hasn’t been SOTM and should be, but I made him SOTM last time, so this was the perfect way to highlight one of my favorites.

 

*A Dick Van Dyke Show Cast Reunion*

We start off with a look at the cast of the classic DICK VAN DYKE SHOW. I’ve been wanting to do a tribute of his show for a while, partly because it was out 50 years ago, but mostly because the show rocks. With this set of films we can see that the show’s amazing cast was one of its greatest assets. All those awesome people in one TV show. One cast member, Jerry Paris, is featured as a director (directing his TV wife, Anne Morgan Guilbert) because this series kick-started his directing career. Rose Marie is shown both as she is in the DICK VAN DYKE SHOW and as Baby Rose Marie. Finally, out of all the movies the show’s headliner was in, I chose WHAT A WAY TO GO, partly because I always find a way to schedule this movie (call it a superstition or tradition, either one), but mostly because Dick Van Dyke is great in this. It shows off his genuine acting, his likeability, and especially his skills as a silent film comedian. It also highlights the talents of other ‘60s stars like Shirley MacLaine, Paul Newman, and Gene Kelly.

 

*POETRY IN MOTION*

These are films that feature poetry and poets. Highlighted in this bunch is my import for the night, IL POSTINO (which won the Oscar for Best Foreign Language Film in 1995). This is hands down one of my favorite foreign films ever made—right up there with Kurosawa’s best for me. It’s a beautiful film in terms of music (Best Score 1995), acting, writing, cinematography (gorgeous Italian landscape), and poetry. It’s the story of a postman on a tiny Italian island whose one client is none other than Pablo Neruda. Everyone should watch it. Can’t say enough. The last poet in this section is Longfellow Deeds, who just happens to also fall in the next category…

 

*HAIL COLUMBIA CHALLENGE*

*Tribute to Joseph Walker, Columbia’s Amazing Cinematographer*

I used this challenge as an excuse to highlight one of Early Sound’s best cinematographers: Joseph Walker. This man is such a brilliant DP. At a time when other films looked stagey and horrible, his camera was free and his lighting was impeccable. Think of that gorgeous shot of Robert Williams kissing Jean Harlow through that very Art Deco fountain in PLATINUM BLONDE, or the African American guy taking his hat off to Abraham Lincoln in MR. SMITH GOES TO WASHINGTON, or the frightening run on the bank in AMERICAN MADNESS, or thousands of other memorable moments. He was Capra’s favorite DP, so this section is very thick with Capra’s best (I’m quite a Capra fan), and some of his lesser known films as well. I can’t believe there are Capra films, for example, that have never been shown on TCM before. Get on that, TCM.

 

*75th ANNIVERSARY of 1938*

Because one of Joseph Walker’s films, the best picture winner YOU CAN’T TAKE IT WITH YOU, is 75 years old, I had to highlight other great movies from that same year. Too many greats to list, so I took just a small sampling. The late 30s-early 40s were a wonderful time—one of the best—and must be celebrated, don’t you agree?

 

*Oh to be a Botanist*

These films feature botanists—an odd profession to have in a movie, but nonetheless interesting. A NEW LEAF has the funniest botanist: Elaine May. Great movie that she wrote and directed herself about Walter Matthau’s pursuit of a wife dumb enough to marry him after he loses his entire fortune.

 

*TAKE-YOUR-SON-OR-DAUGHTER-TO-WORK DAY*

We know there are many talented people in The Film Industry whose sons or daughters (or beyond) went on to make great careers of their own. (Not unlike our friend Lloyd Bridges.) But rarely do they work together in the same film. And when they do, I think it’s pretty nifty (and sometimes Oscar worthy). So these films are specifically ones in which a parent and child(ren) are all working together on the same project. Often they’re all actors (as with the O’Neals, Careys, Fondas, and Emma Thompson & her mom). And sometimes dad is the director (Hitchcock & Minnelli), or maybe Junior is directing Dad (McLaglen & Huston). But rarely do we get the feat we do in THE OUTSIDERS, which really should be subtitled: A COPPOLA PRODUCTION. We got Francis directing, we got most if not all of his kids working on the film in one way or another, and to make it even more special, Francis’ dad is writing the score. Three generations in one film. Oh the fights there must have been!

 

*Well, of course they look alike*

These films are all about random people and their doppelgangers—not relatives, but just look-alikes. They’re tales of “say, you look just like…” which lead to the doppelganger switching places with their famous counterpart. In all cases, both characters are played by the same person (that must have been so much fun), which leads me to say, “Well of course they look alike!”

 

*You Can Con Me Anytime*

Here we have a small sampling of cinema’s most likeable con artists. These are all swindlers, thieves, and crooks who are so likeable they make the seemingly straight-laced public root for them, laugh with them, and love them. If Robert Redford and Paul Newman lied in my face and I knew it, I’d probably still let them rob me blind. And if Robert Morse’s J Pierpont Finch was gunning for my job, I’d just give it to him. In the case of GOODBYE CHARLIE the liar is Debbie Reynolds who is a dead male jerk come back to life is a female’s body, and uses that to his/her advantage. I think it’s one of Debbie’s best performances, so here it is.

 

*SESAME STREET IS BROUGHT TO YOU BY…*

For those of you who don’t remember, Sesame Street, being privately funded, was always “brought to you by the letter E” or “the number 2”. So these are movies with only numbers or a single letter for a title. (I’m a child of the 80s—I have to tribute the Muppets somehow).

 

*SO I MARRIED A FEMME NOIR*

These three films involve Femme Noirs and people dumb enough to marry them. Then they have the nerve to be shocked when they get killed. Wow, really, people?

 

*THE ART OF COLLABORATION: CINEMA’S GREAT SONGWRITING TEAMS*

Because TCM has been doing these “Art of Collaboration” interviews, I decided to run with that idea and highlight great songwriting teams. Many tune writers and lyricists flitted about writing songs with different people, but these people stayed with their partners over multiple projects to great success. It must be tough to depend on someone to write half your song. Some teams wrote directly for the screen (from the early sound era to Disney’s heyday), some took Broadway by storm, and some wrote popular songs that were later put into films. Of course I picked films that included my favorites of their songs, although our TCM Underground pick LITTLE SHOP OF HORRORS is actually the only one I can legally show (thanks, Ebenezer Disney). In the case of MARY POPPINS and CAROUSEL, I chose what I think to be the teams’ best scores overall. Many of these films also feature their respective teams’ Oscar-nominated or –winning songs. A special shout out to the Damon Runyon film THE LEMON DROP KID which, unbeknownst to many, features the first appearance of Livingston & Evans’ most recorded song: “Silver Bells.”

 

*STAR OF THE MONTH: GEORGE SANDERS*

Finally we end the night with our SOTM, George Sanders. How could this amazing Oscar-winning actor with one of the top 10 voices of all time never have been SOTM before? This guy ‘s films could easily be broken up into a whole evening of him as The Falcon, then The Saint, then the rest. What I have here are my favorite performances of his (except the one I can’t show: THE JUNGLE BOOK) which just happen to comprise of two Best Picture Winners, his Oscar-winning performance, a Hitchcock film, and two of the best Halloween movies. The reason I put the SOTM on a Saturday (which doesn’t really happen, but it wasn’t part of the rules!) was to make one of his films the Essentials. LURED blew my mind the first time I saw it. It’s a murder suspense film but I couldn’t predict who the killer was immediately! How cool is that? You really can’t tell until the film wants you to know. That is quite a feat. Plus it has a great cast. And for me, The Essentials is best when it highlights great films that many people haven’t even heard of let alone seen. So in this case it’s, “Okay, you’ve all seen REAR WINDOW and VERTIGO, so here’s a great not-so-famous thriller you need to see.”

 

And with that bizarre slogan, it is with a heavy heart that we say farewell to all our friends at the TCM Message Boards.

 

NOTE: Because of my Very-Typical-of-Me mistake, TALES OF MANHATTAN is now my Essentials pick, but it still holds the same principal of being quite a good film that not too many people have seen and might be overlooked otherwise. It’s pretty lucky for me I could schedule the movie elsewhere and not have to delete any of my premieres. George Sanders saves the day again

LP,

 

Congrats on taking the time to make some small changes to your schedule, which was already great. Tales of Manhattan would make an excellent Essential and I'm glad that you were able to find a way to use it.

In another thread, RMeingast posted a great link to an interview with Charlie Tabesh (VP of TCM programming). I thought I'd share it here, as well as a quote.

 

http://suite101.com/article/tcm-programming-chiefs-admission-well-steal-from-anybody-a402139

 

> ?You look on our website. There are (fans) that do the TCM Programming Challenge and they each do their own schedules and vote on each others? schedules, and there are things that come from that, and it's, like, ?That?s a great festival, we?re gonna do that.? And we tell them, ?We?re gonna do that,? and they?re happy.

 

How great is that!

Capuchin, thanks for posting that link to a delightful article about Charlie Tabesh.

 

And there are some wonderful ideas that just might end up as part of the official schedule. I am so impressed with all the entries!

Capuchin,

 

Thanks for posting that link to the Charlie Tabesh interview. It was definitely a confirmation of how seriously the TCM Programming Challenge is taken by the TCM Programmers. Some of the ideas in the six (so far) terrific schedules posted on this thread might actually show up on the network.

Capuchin,

That quote totally made my day. It's nice when they steal from us (I've had some ideas used before) but it's really nice to have them admit it and tell the world. Go us!

Notes on Audreyforever’s Schedule:

 

Sunday:

 

 

I have always been fascinated with the American Revolution, so I decided to give a tribute to it. Included in the tribute are the great WB short subjects about the founding fathers and the founding of this great nation. Secretaries are the spotlight Sunday night, focusing on the screwball side to the women’s occupation.

 

 

Monday:

 

 

Stewart Granger is one of my favorites, and so there wasn’t a better time to give him a tribute than on his centennial. Featured throughout the day are his swashbuckling films at MGM and some of his westerns. At night we have a showcase of “Bombastic Bettys”. The Fleet’s In is a great film with Ms. Hutton stealing the show.

 

 

Tuesday:

 

 

The movie themes of the day are a play on famous classic movie titles such as The Most Dangerous Game and Dial M for Murder. Some of the chosen films are movies I have always wanted to see but never got around to them. At night the spotlight is on Maureen O’Sullivan. What is shocking to me is that even though she was a famous actress at MGM, she has never been SOTM or have received a SUTS day. Giving credit where credit is due!

 

 

Wednesday:

 

 

HAIL COLUMBIA! Throughout the day we are celebrating the best examples of film at Columbia Studios, and then at night are some rare 30s dramas and comedies never before seen. One can only dream this will happen at TCM in the future!

 

 

Thursday:

 

 

In the morning we have a bday tribute to the wonderful director, Anatole Litvak. In the afternoon I decided to shed light on the films that included wonderful pieces by Claude Debussy, my favorite pianist. My favorite night of scheduling appears on this night, when EugeniaH, one of our very own users, is the Guest Programmer. Great picks Genie! The night ends with a three hour tribute to the holy trinity of silent comedians.

 

 

Friday:

 

 

In the morning we have models shining in the celluloid, with a nice Universal pick- Artists & Models. Box Office Kings and Queens, such as Gable, Loy, Garson, and Wayne, take up the afternoon. At night we have a wonderful line up of films with great tap dance sequences. Make sure you check out Three Cheers for Love, which has Eleanore Whitney tapping away!!!

 

 

Saturday:

 

 

The morning begins with films that share titles with famous jazz-standards. Ben Mankewicz will be introducing a selection of westerns with major stars of the era, such as Holden and Lnacaster in the afternoon. The schedule ends with the Essentials, which just happens to be Humoresque, a film I believe is one of the greatest of the studio era. In addition to that particular films we have others that were also produced by WB’s very own Jerry Wald.
