VOTING THREAD for 22nd TCM PROGRAMMING CHALLENGE; Hail Columbia

47 posts in this topic

*This is the voting thread for the 22nd TCM Programming Challenge: Hail Columbia*.

 

Nine incredible schedules were posted but only one can win this Challenge. The person who receives the most votes gets to moderate the next Challenge.

 

*Here are the voting requirements*: you are eligible to vote if you were a registered member of the TCM message boards no later than *July 1, 2012* OR you submitted one of the nine schedules in this Challenge. Only one vote per member, please.

 

 

Voting is open from now until *11:59 PM (pacific time) on Monday, September 10, 2012*. Cast your vote on this thread or send me a private message. You may find it useful to check out the original information and Challenge requirements in this link: http://forums.tcm.com/thread.jspa?threadID=165802&tstart=0&messageID=8665328#8665328

 

 

Please consider including comments about what you liked in each schedule. Everyone worked very hard and it's always a pleasure for the challengers to receive positive feedback.

 

 

Here are the nine participants of this Challenge:

SanFin

audreyforever

Capuchin

skimpole

aimalac

B-Boop

filmlover

Lonesome Polecat

Fedya

 

 

At this juncture, I must point out that Lonesome Polecat used eleven premieres instead of ten and has recused herself from the voting.

 

 

Fedya did not technically complete his schedule by the deadline. The pertinent information of actor/actress and Director are missing.

 

 

Both Fedya and Lonesome Polecat created marvelous schedules and I hope that all of you will laud their fine efforts, along with all of the other participants.

 

 

One note: kingrat sent me a PM a few days ago, regretting not having the opportunity to complete a schedule. I'm sure he'll be around for the next Challenge.

 

 

I am posting all schedules and notes. Please reread and wait until I get all nine posted before commenting or voting. It might take a bit of time to cull everything and do some reformatting.

 

 

I will announce the winner on *Tuesday, September 11th*.

*Capuchin's Schedule notes for June 16 to 22, 2013*

 

SOTM -- Basil Rathbone

Columbia Tribute -- Monday Evening

 

Daytime Themes -- *If TCM's programmers moonlighted for other cable channels.*

Evening Themes -- Cheesy Alliterations

 

There are times that, for one reason or another, I'm not particularly interested in watching the movie on TCM. So I start channel surfing. This led me to wonder what it would look like if TCM programmers moonlighted by creating schedules for other cable channels.

 

Court TV would be all about trials, DIY Network would show How To movies, etc.

 

I thought about a particular news channel's possible line-up (a mixture of fantasies and famous lies), but discretion is the better part of valor, and I decided not to light that fuse.

 

Basil Rathbone is SOTM. I'm able to put him on Sunday because of his silent and foreign movies. *Autopsia de un fantasma* (1968) translates roughly to Autopsy of a Ghost. It's really tacky but kinda so bad it's good. As part of my cheesy alliterations, I called it Sherlockian Sunday, but there's only one Holmes movie.

 

When I think of Columbia Pictures, the first thing that comes to mind is mystery movies. I picked some I barely remember, not having seen them in decades.

 

The rest of the schedule is rather self-evident. I picked mostly movies I know and like to fit the theme for the day or evening.

 

I know 4 of the premieres on Columbia night didn't have to go against the overall count, but I don't usually use a lot of premieres anyway because most of the great movies have already been on TCM.

*Skimpole's notes:*

Explanation:

 

After having done all day tributes first for French movies, them Italian ones, I believed that Japan deserved a try. Sunday is the Emperor's birthday, and I thought Japanese movies were more deserving of a tribute than the Japanese royal house. I didn't want to start the day with one of my premieres, so the first two movies are chronologically later than it. After it, we proceed chronologically until we get to our Sunday Silents.

 

Monday-The movies until the evening deal with such Christmas themes as snow, or events that take place on or near Christmas eve. The Innocents is there because The Turn of the Screw is actually a story told on Christmas Eve. Then we have four movies from star of the month Max von Sydow.

 

Tuesday-More movies on or about Christmas. We also have a Chaplin afternoon to comemorate the 35th anniversary of his death. Then for the evening we have four particular movies about families, with a Melies movie about the North Pole rounding out the evening.

 

Wednesday-We start off with such Christmas themes as guests who don't leave and enormous amounts of snow. Then we have five movies dealing with religious themes. Just to make sure that TCM isn't only for Christians, we have Woody Allen pondering an unjust universe and several Muslims pondering the morality of suicide. December 26/Boxing Day is also the feast of Saint Stephen, the first Christian martyr (and by a complete coincidence, the name of my brother). So we have movies by directors George Stevens and Stephen Roberts, as well as one starring Steve McQueen. Having Stella Stevens in The Nutty Professor would be an obvious option, but why not choose Robert Stevenson's The Absent Minded Professorinstead. Last but not least, we have the only great film made from a Stephen King novel, The Shining which brings us to back to another winter theme, Snow!

 

Thursday-It's brithday time as we start off with movies for birthday boys Sydney Greenstreet and Oscar Levant, and then for birthday girl Marlene Dietrich. Then it's our Columbia tribute night.

 

Friday-We start off with another extremely rude winter guest, then we have two movies from birthday boy Lew Ayres. We then have two movies which involve Christmas celebration, another movie involving snow, and then a five movie tribute to birthday boy director F.W. Murnau.

 

Saturday-What better way to deal with the holiday season than the best movie about being on holiday? We then have a classic animated movie, and then a movie from birthday girl Mary Tyler Moore. TCM usually has the That's Entertainment! sometime around this year, and who am I to disagree? Finally for this evening we have five particularly powerful movies about family and love.

*Filmlover's notes*:

 

*Star of the Month* ? I was surprised to see that Jane Wyatt hasn?t ever been the SOTM, but I guess it is because few know how many films she made besides Lost Horizon. Was there ever an actress that had a friendlier smile? I had the good fortune to have met her in later years at a memorial of Frank Capra at the Directors Guild, and she was just as lovely as ever.

 

*Born in Budapest* ? this idea came about when I was watching something that mentioned several major film people who were born in Hungary. I was surprised that some of the most famous people in golden age Hollywood were from Budapest.

 

*Forgotten All-Star Extravaganzas* ? these are similar to Thank Your Lucky Stars, Hollywood Canteen, and Stage Door Canteen. The ones I have chosen have been forgotten or ignored, but the studios? star power was incredible. Each has dozens of the greatest stars Hollywood produced, except Forever And A Day also featured nearly 50 stars of Hollywood and England.

*Janis Paige* ? Speaking of Hollywood Canteen, it?s the film I use in the section right after the extravaganzas. Many of us have seen it, and I consider the sections of it with soldier Dane Clark and WB studio guide Janis Paige to be among the best. This and the short, I Won?t Play, were good examples of the studio grooming its talent into stars. Clark and Paige made another film together, included here. I have added two other Paige films, including the one she is likely best known for, Silk Stockings, in which she and Fred Astaire sing Stereophonic Sound. Special note: Ms. Paige will be celebrating her 90th birthday with a special show in a San Francisco nightclub in Sept. 2012. Check her website.

*For the Columbia requirement of the schedule*, I chose to highlight their marvelous B-movie series and their comedy team shorts.

*Columbia Recasts* - taking up countessdelave?s invitation, I recast some Columbia gems for Wednesday morning.

I am sure Harry Cohn might have thought some scripts were too depressing in their drama, so he decided to lighten up Death of A Salesman by bringing in some WB stalwarts.

However, in the case of The Solid Gold Cadillac, he saw an opportunity to go serious and use Joan Crawford, who has lost her husband but discovers he has a single share of stock in a soft-drink company. She goes to the stockholders meeting and, well, you know the rest of the story, she rises in popularity and becomes a spokeswoman for the corporation, but the pressures of the job cause her to take her frustrations out on her kids, especially her daughter, who ends up writing a tell-all book and narrating the film.

Lost Horizon (1962) is not a recast but a remake done during Sinatra?s Ratpack period. He plays Bobby ?the Voice? Conway, a film star turned Vegas lounge act, who has lost his singing ability. He is on a plane and kidnapped to Shangri-La. Other passengers include his brother George (Dean Martin), who has a drinking and gambling problem, Fran (Shirley MacLaine), an elevator operator who is on the verge of suicide because of a bad love relationship, Lovett (Joey Bishop), a humorless man with no talent, and Barnard (Cesar Romero), a con man who likes to wear pasty makeup and a green wig. At Shangri-La, Bobby meets Maria (Julie Andrews) who teaches him how to sing again. Bobby is not sure he wants to go back to the world outside. Chang (Sammy Davis, Jr.) tells Bobby that the leader of Shangri-La wants to meet him. ?The High Lama?? Bobby asks. Chang replies, ?Well, that depends on what he?s been smokin?.? In the meeting with the High Lama (Bing Crosby), Bobby is asked to take over for him.

Cohn decides he doesn?t want to have union troubles so he has the script of On the Waterfront rewritten to feature a failed architect turned dock worker (Gary Cooper) giving up on his potential. Reporter Edie (Jean Arthur) goes to the docks to find out his story. Millionaire governor Johnny Friendly (Edward Arnold) doesn?t want the story to come out.

*Wendy Hiller* - I should have done a schedule last time because then I could have noted that today, August 15 th, is British actress Wendy Hiller?s 100 th birthday. But maybe TCM can do a 101 st birthday in next year?s Summer Under The Stars. (By the way, I realize that my schedule occurs during the month August 2013, the SUTS month, and doesn?t fit that particular star-a-day format, but hopefully they can borrow some themes.)

*Take 2* ? this is a case of a 1952 British film by Powell and Pressburger, starring Jennifer Jones, called Gone To Earth (meaning gone into hiding). It was 110 minutes, but producer David O. Selznick thought it didn?t showcase enough of his wife, Jones. He took the film, cut it, had Rouben Mamoulian shoot some new sequences with the same cast, and basically made it a different film, this time running only 82 minutes and called ?The Wild Heart.?

The rest are pretty self-explanatory.

The Story of Movies, an educational project sponsored by

 

 

The Film Foundation, Turner Classic Movies, and IBM.

This educational program is available, free of charge, to middle

 

 

schools across the country, with the goal of teaching young

 

 

students how to understand and interpret the language of film

2:00AM TCM IMPORT

 

 

THE FORBIDDEN QUEST (1994) (NETHERLANDS)

 

 

While visiting Ireland in 1931 a documentary film maker hears about

 

 

an old man who worked as a ship’s carpenter and who may know of

 

 

the fate of the legendary Hollandia, a Norse ship which set sail for

 

 

Antarctica in 1905 and was never seen again. We learn that his name

 

 

is J.C. Sullivan, the lone survivor of the expedition, and as he begins

 

 

to tell the story of the Hollandia, he produces an old sea chest filled

 

 

with dusty old film canisters. The pictures, as he refers to them; “She’s

 

 

still here - in the pictures” he says, and as he tells an incredible story,

 

 

we get to watch the moving pictures as proof. The message of this film

 

 

is quite clear. All film must be preserved for our future generations.

 

 

 

 

 

3:15AM – METROPOLIS (1927)

 

 

The final film for this special evening dedicated to film restoration

-------------------*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

*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.

*FEDYA'S NOTES ON A SCHEDULE*

 

TCM shows a broad spectrum of movies, in almost every genre. I decided to display this by picking out a bunch of broad genres, and then showing a whole range of sub-genres within each main genre.

 

Sunday morning and afternoon start out with a bunch of anthology movies, which in theory contain several different genres within each movie. (At least, they can; not all of them do.) There's comedy, drama, and horror, as well as both American and British movies. The afternoon concludes with the short Lionpower from MGM, which was MGM's 1967 look at the movies that were going to be coming out from MGM in the "four seasons of LIONPOWER!"

 

Sunday being Sunday, I figured it would also be a good day for religion-themed movies, which includes the Silent Sunday Nights film, the Lillian Gish version of *The White Sister*, and theTCM Import, *The Burmese Harp*, about a Japanese soldier who becomes a monk to escape the war.

 

The religious movies end with a biopic, which is a good way to tie together the religious movies with the next theme, disaster movies. OK, technically *The Producers* isn't a disaster, but the plot involves Zero Mostel and Gene Wilder trying to produce a disaster.

 

A comedic movie about crooks trying to create a disaster is a good segue into Monday night, and the Columbia theme: Columbia's comic crooks. It's a night of movies from Columbia that are about criminals and gangsters, with a relatively comic bent. *So You Won't Talk* is supposedly a remake of *The Whole Town's Talking*, starring Joe E. Brown in the Edward G. Robinson role(s).

 

There are a lot of movies set in the world of newspapers and magazines, and I decided to highlight these with a bunch of films across a range of dramas. I'll grant that *Cimarron* might be a bit of a stretch, but Richard Dix and Irene Dunne do play newspaper publishers.

 

We go from one horror movie with a newspaperman (again, I'll admit calling *Doctor X* a newspaper movie is a bit of a stretch) to a horror movie about a doctor, *The Return of Doctor X*, which is really worth watching for poor Humphrey Bogart's pallid performance. It kicks off a night of doctor movies, including two with Edward G. Robinson as the doctor, and one with Robert Mitchum!

 

The last of the doctor movies stars Kay Francis, which is a good way to kick off a day of "chick flicks" with strong female protagonists on Wednesday. Eventually we get to a bunch of movies with female spies, although they're relatively different genres of spy films.

 

This is especially true of the last one, *Thirteen Frightened Girls*, which was directed by William Castle. Yes, that William Castle. That's a good way to kick off a night of teen movies.

 

The last teen movie, early Thursday morning, is *High School Confidential*, which I'm not certain has any actual teens despite the high school setting. It's also hilariously bad. That makes it a good movie to start a day of films that are "So bad they're good". Howl along at Tony Bennett's emoting in *The Oscar* or Carol Channing doing a strip-tease in *Skidoo*, among others. The bad news is that *Dondi* is terrible, and has no redeeming quailities that I can think of. If you ever need to punish your children, make them watch *Dondi*.

 

I know Peter Lorre wasn't exactly a star by Hollywood standards, although he was a more than dependable actor. He also appeared in a broad range of movies, so I decided to highlight that broad range in one of his days as Star of the Month. The last of his films that I selected being a musical, I figured I'd have to start with a musical for Friday morning, in my day of Westerns. The Westerns continue until Friday night, when we get war movies (of course, following after a war movie set in the Old West).

 

This brings us to TCM Underground, and two movies that probably will never be shown on TCM because from what I've read (I'll admit to not having seen either of them), they're too brutal. *Men Behind the Sun* is about [unit 731|http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Unit_731], a Japanese installation which engaged in testing biological and chemical weapons on Chinese and Soviet POWs, as well as nasty medical experiments. *Black Sun*, from the same director, is about the [Rape of Nanking|http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nanking_Massacre].

 

The last of the war movies isn't so much a docudrama as an instructional film designed for recruits to learn about the interrogation tactics Nazis would use. That, I suppose, is close enough to a docudrama to seque into a day of docudramas.

 

TCM has shown blaxploitation movies in TCM Underground, but I don't think there are enough of them to do an entire day. So I had to do the next best thing, which is movies that aren't quite blaxploitation. We start off with "Smacksploitation Cinema", as everybody only watches*Mildred Pierce* to see Mildred give Veda the smack she richly deserves. That's followed by Walter Matthau as a dentist in *Cactus Flower* and a Laurel and Hardy short about slacks.

 

We then have this week's TCM Essential, *The Killing*, which is one of Stanley Kubrick's earliest movies, about robbing a racetrack of a day's betting profits.

 

On the rest of Saturday night, we have, in order, Paul Douglas as an alleged tax evader; Jean Harlow's back being used as the punchline of a joke; Bette Davis as a librarian who refuses to remove a book about Communism from her stacks; Joan Crawford axe-murdering the Six-Million Dollar Man; and one that speaks for itself.

 

I believe I actually only used four premieres (I'm not certain whether both Laurel and Hardy shorts aired in the Hal Roach salute or not). I'm always a bit afraid to select a premiere because I'll worry that I'm going to run out of premieres and then have to scramble to complete the schedule with previously-aired movies.

 

As for the premieres, *We're Not Married* is a Fox film about a soon-to-be Justice of the Peace who jumps the gun by marrying five couples a week early, and then the consequences for each of those couples for their marriages not being valid;

 

*On the Front Page* is a Stan Laurel (apparently without Oliver Hardy!) silent two-reeler;

 

*Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea* involves Peter Lorre on a submarine that's on a mission to restore the Van Allen Belts before Earth overheats; and

 

*The Man Who Never Was* is a dramatization of the story of [Operation Mincemeat|http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Operation_Mincemeat].

*SansFin's TCM Programming Challenge 22 Programming Notes*

 

April 14, 2013 to April 20, 2013

 

Vincent Price is my Star of the Month.

Columbia Pictures night is on Monday.

There are three Columbia Pictures Premieres, two Exempt Columbia Pictures short films and ten other Premieres.

 

I admit that it is not possible to justify the themes of the daytimes. Each person has an aspect of their inner self of which they are not proud. My shame is that I love wordplay. Inherent in puns is that the worst are the best. I have tried to chose the best. You may take that to mean they are the worst.

 

My Star of the Month is Vincent Price. The two TCM Premieres for this night are: *The Fly*(1958) and *Up in Central Park* (1948). I wished also to show *Laura* (1944). It is sad to say he is not a star of it and so it was not worth precious Premiere status.

 

*Jolly Fellows* (1934) and *Tsirk* (1936) are wonderfully funny. There are prints of them with subtitles in English. The former movie is available for viewing in full on YouTube and the latter movie has clips which are available for viewing on YouTube.

 

Vera Kholodnaya had a life as dramatic as her movies. She was named: "The Queen of the Screen" and she starred in a hundred movies before she was murdered by the French to hide a scandal when she was only twenty-five years of age. *Be Silent, Sorrow, Be Silent* (1918) is available for viewing in full in twelve parts on YouTube. My TCM Import is: *Island of the Dead* (1993) which is Oleg Kovalov's documentary of her.

 

My Columbia Pictures Premieres are: *The Man Called Flintstone* (1966), *Wholly Moses!*(1980) and *Slave of Babylon* (1953).

 

My TCM Underground is a modern film. *Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels* (1998) is a funny, gory, witty and violent comedy with many sexual references. It is so very over-the-top I believe none can be seriously offended by its content.

 

I celebrate the One-Hundred-and-One anniversary of Bram Stoker's death with *Dracula* (1931) as the week's TCM Essential and variations of the story the remainder of the evening.

Sorry for the delays. I've been having problems reposting schedules that have too many characters and different formatting styles. I think that I have all nine up now.

Countess, I know how hard it is to get all the bolding, etc. done, so great work on that! And thank you for being a fantastic moderator!!!

 

To all: I have won two Challenges before, and thus had the honor of being moderator twice. I am not sure if my current schedule would get any votes, but I would like to ask you to not vote for my schedule. I would like someone else to get a chance to be moderator next time. "It's an honor just to be nominated." : )

Thanks, countessdelave, for running a great challenge! Inspired idea, and a lot of hard work to keep together.

They're all great schedules!

You know, it's funny, but I tried yesterday to get on and just quickly put LURED back as my "Essential," which it was in my first draft, but the website wouldn't let me on the entire day no matter what server I used. I guess it was "a sign" that someone else needs to moderate the next challenge. :)

 

Well I believe I commented on all the schedules in the previous thread except SansFin, the last schedule:

 

SansFin-

I LOVE VINCENT PRICE AS SOTM!! He's also one who has been on my SOTM list for a while. Awesome schedule, great themes, lots of great movies. Lots of clever titles like "In Seine" and "optical aleutian". I have always wanted to see THOSE MAGNIFICENT MEN IN THEIR FLYING MACHINES. And is THE MAN CALLED FLINSTONE a movie of the classic animated tv series? Because that is so cool. Great schedule.

 

As for the vote, since apparently I can't vote for Fedya, who totally blew my mind with Peter Lorre and that brilliant "blaxploitation" bit (I am still in awe over that one), I'll have to re-read the schedules again and ponder this matter a bit.

 

Good luck to all. Great schedules all around.

LP,

 

I'm sorry you weren't able to access the website yesterday. I did okay in the morning and the evening but had problems accessing during the afternoon. I guess there was a lot of Labor Day traffic.

 

Filmlover,

 

I'm sorry that you've recused yourself from the vote but that doesn't mean you won't get some kudos for your work. Thanks to both you and Capuchin for your kind words to me.

Congratulations to all the contestants! I hope TCM will be poaching some of these great ideas.

 

 

In trying to choose one out of all, what struck me most was Capuchin's way of proving to us that not all mysteries or Westerns or any other genre are the same kind of film. This is a rich way of thinking about genre in movies, and for that reason my vote goes to Capuchin.

I wonder how it'd have turned out if I'd meant to do that. :)

 

Thanks for the vote!

I have to say, It was easier creating a schedule than it is deciding which is best. I will say, I was leaning toward LonesomePolecat from the start with the "Dick Van Dyke Show" tribute and many of the other films chosen. When LonesomePolecat withdrew from consideration, it really didn't make my choice any easier. Everyone had so many good titles and themes that losing to this competition is no disgrace. However one thing that I found particularily good was filmlover's Columbia recasting. After seeing his recasting ideas, I was tempted to change my already submitted schedule to include a Columbia recast of Elvis Presley as Conrad Birdie in "Bye Bye Birdie".

 

 

My vote goes for filmlover for an excellent schedule and congratulations to everyone else on a job well done.

aimalac, your vote is much appreciated, but as I mentioned several posts down, I ask for people to vote for someone other than me because I have already won twice.

Well, as I said, any of the schedules would be a worthy winner. I liked LonesomePolecat's "Dick Van Dyke" tribute before he pulled out of the running. I liked filmlover's Columbia recasting before I found he pulled out of the running. Because I feel all the schedules are equally excellent choices the only basis of difference is the themes. My next and I hope final choice is Capuchin's moonlighting programming.

 

 

So I'm casting my vote for Capuchin.

Your third choice, huh? Well, it's an honor to be a runner-up.

 

;)

 

Seriously, I'm honored, especially because there are so many other great schedules!
