Synopsis: Two fugitives run off with a machine that records dreams.
DirWim Wenders CastWilliam Hurt , Solveig Dommartin , Pietro Falcone .

 

"...was poorly received in its first release, and was both a critical and commercial failure...

R. Ebert: "plays like a film that was photographed before it was written, and edited before it was completed". A documentary about the globe-trekking production would have likely been more interesting than the film itself, he said.[2]

So they're showing the 4hr 40minute director's cut? I only saw the 158 minute version released back in '91. I didn't care for it at all, but perhaps the longer version is better.

Holy cannoli! 4hr 40min? My TV grid has it's running time blocked from 11-4, but in the film discription it says 160min length.

TCM premieres in August

- Unfortunately the on-line daily and monthly listings for August do not identify TCM premieres.  The Now Playing guide is the only place where premieres are currently listed.

- Because of the Summer Under The Stars programming, there is no ‘At A Glance’ section in the August Now Playing guide where the TCM premieres would normally be listed.  Instead, you have to look at the listings for each day of the month to find the TCM premieres.

(Not sure what will happen next year when there is no Now Playing magazine.)

- So to put it all in one place I made a list of the August premieres from the final Now Playing guide:

Aug 1 - Love Nest (1951) (Marilyn Monroe)
Aug 13 - All I Desire (1953) (Barbara Stanwyck)
Aug 14 - Young Catherine (1991) (Vanessa Redgrave)
Aug 18 - The Man Who Had Power Over Women (1970) (Rod Taylor)
Aug 18 - The Deadly Trackers (1973) (Rod Taylor)
Aug 19 - Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street (1982) (Angela Lansbury)
Aug 21 - Condemned (1929) (Ann Harding)
Aug 25 - Casque d’Or (1952) (Simone Signoret)
Aug 28 - An Eye for an Eye (1966) (Slim Pickens)
Aug 31 - Night Watch (1973) (Elizabeth Taylor)

Hope I didn’t miss anything.  Please correct errors / omissions.

@cmovieviewer

I guess those are the major ones.  My list has quite a few more.  I have them listed in order, but don't have actual play times or dates.  The month they play is all the way to the right.

http://moviecollector.us/reports/Future_Premieres.htm

 

Thanks MovieCollectorOH!  (I thought the list in the magazine seemed brief?!)  I have tried to incorporate the missing items from your spreadsheet - the additions have been marked with an '*'.  (Note that for consistency I continued to use the movie year from the magazine, even though it may not be the best.)  Glad we went through this exercise!

Wow...  I hadn't seen the more recent issues of NPG, so I had no idea of what their premieres were.

 

P.S. the production years are just normalized to IMDB's, as they have to be normalized to something.  AFI versus IMDB.  Tomayto, tomahto.  They often differ by about 1 year.  Otherwise not very meaningful.  In some cases though my report may use American release dates of foreign films - so you would likely see a later year in that case, but then the original title with original year would be just under that in brackets.

Thank you for your comments, MCOH.  While updating the list I noticed that even in the Now Playing guide the movie year for a given title is sometimes different for the daily listings and the movie index at the end!  Perhaps they are somehow coming from different references.  But as you say it doesn't really matter much.  Just thought I would mention it in case anybody wondered. I am impressed that your algorithms are able to take this into account when you are looking things up.

@cmovieviewer  Not to understate the importance of specific release years, but they are best covered by movie historians who know the back story.  In my case though the year works as part of a universal way to ID each movie.  From there it gets into some filtered matching (what you were wondering about) and then a set of automated tests which validate certain conditions to be true or false.  I look at the failed results from each of these tests, maybe do a bit of research, and manually correct them so they correctly fit together.  After all the tests come up clean and no more errors, the reports get generated.  This routine is all script-driven, so it runs exactly the same way each time.

I wish they would show the sequel, where a man gets mixed up with a stolen car ring to pay for his son's operation to become his daughter. I can't recall the title, but it was something like Hey, Dude, Where's My Stick Shift?

Wow that list of premieres is spectacular! I already chose what to record for the month from that list, although I do see a few inneresting titles on the full online schedule.

 

The first movie 6am, Aug 1: LADIES OF THE CHORUS '49....has that shown before? I've never heard of it, but worth a watch at least.

I've been waiting to see AFFAIRS OF BEL AMI, it hasn't shown in well over a year, but premiere? I don't think so.

 

My recorder's going to burn out, but I just love these:

 

 

 

Aug 2 * - Alias Nick Beal (1949) (3starRay Milland)

Aug 6 * - When Strangers Marry (1944) (3starRobert Mitchum)

 

Aug 11 * - Dreamboat (1952) (Ginger Rogers) 

Aug 13 - All I Desire (1953) (Barbara Stanwyck)

 

Aug 19 * - The Private Affairs of Bel Ami (1947) (George Sanders)

Aug 30 * - A Touch of Larceny 93min (1960) (George Sanders)

 

Aug 25 - Casque d’Or 95min (1952) (4stars! Simone Signoret)

Aug 25 * - Against the Wind 96min (1948) (Simone Signoret)

 

Aug 27 * - Leslie Caron the Reluctant Star (2016) (Leslie Caron)

Aug 29 * - When Knighthood Was in Flower (1922) (Marion Davies)

 

"When Knighthood" isn't listed in ANY of my guide books, but know I've heard of it. Any thoughts? I'm a Marion Davies fan anyway.

 

They're grouped for burning as "double features", makes it easier to file away after viewing. Ray Milland finds his way into my macho men box just for being grouped with Mitch.

 

I am really looking forward to the Simone Signoret double features-very highly rated!

I don't bother with any 2 star rated movies any more....I just can't waste my time with a so-so or boring movie.

TikiSoo--Re "When Knighthood Was in Flower" (1921)--This was the film where Davies transferred from a "leading lady" to a star.  Film is a romantic comedy-drama in 1500's England--Davies is the heroine, but gets to really show her comedic gifts for the first time.  I saw this on YouTube; they had a print missing the last ten minutes up for a short time.

 

When the emphasis was on comedy, Davies lit up the screen and had my complete attention. 

 

W.R. Hearst spent over one million 1921 dollars on the film, and you can see every cent on the screen.  Even on the so-so print YouTube had, I could tell that.

 

William Powell is in there somewhere as one of the bad guys.

 

Film is one of the restored Marion Davies movies TCM has been premiering (1927's "The Red Mill", 1921's "Enchantment", etc.).  I'm looking forward to it.

 

Movie's very worth a watch.

 

About "Ladies of the Chorus" (1948)--Film's notable for having Marilyn Monroe in her first starring role.  Film's no award winner, but you may want to see it anyway; it doesn't turn up too often, and I haven't seen any good DVD's of it.

Ladies of the Chorus (1949) - they haven't shown this since 2009.  Before that they just showed it a bunch of times in 1994.

 

Affairs Of Bel Ami (1947) - No evidence whatsoever [in my world that makes it a premiere]. 

P.S. I see Barton Keyes also called it a premiere.

Thanks 293....now I remember-I saw the film at a rare film festival.

 

And you're probably right Ohio-all I know is Bel Ami's been on my "wish list" for over a year now -most likely 2 years- after a conversation about it on these boards. I thought it was being talked about because it had just aired and I had MISSED it. That happens to me a lot and generally it is broadcast again.

 

But yeah, the LADIES OF THE CHORUS is a 2 star movie....I just can't sit through any more tiring or tedious movies, even with Marilyn Monroe in them.

late tonight, 7-30 for                           TCM Imports.....

 

(times ET)

 
 
2:00 AM
B/W - 141 m
 
drama

Synopsis: Two sisters reunite with the mother they thought dead.
DirYasujiro Ozu CastSetsuko Hara , Ineko Arima , Chishu Ryu .

 

"This turbulent and grim family melodrama, from 1957, is steered away from the maudlin and given emotional depth and philosophical heft under the direction of Yasujiro Ozu."

 

article: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tokyo_Twilight

 

 

4:30 AM
B/W - 72 m
 
drama

Synopsis: A widow reluctantly takes in an abandoned boy.
DirYasujiro Ozu CastChoko Iida , Hohi Aoki , Eitaro Ozawa .

 

"...depicts the chaos of urban life and the harsh realities of a country defeated in war, but his aim was never truly sociological. This relatively obscure film, rarely seen outside of Japan, is a worthy introduction to his masterful portraits of family life and relationships observed with Ozu's characteristic gentle humor and abundant sense of humanity."

D: Joseph M. Newman. June Haver, William Lundigan, Frank Fay, Marilyn Monroe, Jack Paar, Leatrice Joy.

"Cheerful but bland comedy about an Army returnee whose wife has bought a broken-down brownstone apartment, and whose tenants become part of their lives. Interesting only for early looks at Monroe and future TV host Paar."

You didn't.  Out of curiosity I just looked at my previous stuff from June and Police Python wasn't there.  So they added it since then. 

 

I do a fresh grab of 4 or 5 months worth of schedules, each time I do updates - usually once a month.  Everything you see on my Premiere page either gets replaced or added.  For the archives, the month-ending is also grabbed for its completion, due to last-minute changes (even if I don't do the reports right away).
