I think it's just because February is when they show the Oscar films so there will be many repeats. The other months, they have been very good with premieres. 

Yes, but the month in question (discussed in the posts above) is April.

Ah okay, the post above his was about February so I got confused. Yeah, less April premieres. Hope it doesn't keep up. As for the TCM wine ads and everything, I think the income was supposed to come from the ad space allotted and not the actual products themselves.

The TCM Wine Club pays TCM for ad space? I wouldn't think there would be ad costs as they're the same company.

We belong to the TCM wine club and it is actually through Laithwaite's Wines.   They are their own wine distribution company and they run a ton of different clubs you can join...one of them being the TCM wine club.   They are their own website and all.  So I'm sure that has to have something to do with the advertising.  Maybe???

As pointed out by TikiSoo in the February schedule thread, the scheduled premiere of The Madness of King George (1994) on Feb. 9 has been replaced with Calamity Jane (1953) (not a premiere).

The sad list of February premieres that I posted previously has been updated.

😧 Otto Preminger. Linda Darnell, Cornel Wilde, Richard Greene, George Sanders, Jessica Tandy, Anne Revere, Leo G. Carroll.

"`Musical beds'' costumer, taken from Kathleen Winsor's once-scandalous novel, about blonde Darnell's ascension to the court of Charles II. Lengthy but colorful and entertaining, with David Raksin's outstanding score."

genre_NONE_expanded.gif
King of Jazz (1930)

Synopsis:
DirJohn Murray Anderson CastPaul Whiteman , John Boles , Laura La Plante .

" The first surprise about King of Jazz (1930) is that it doesn't contain much of the music usually called jazz. The title refers to Paul Whiteman, a hugely popular bandleader whose "symphonic jazz" involved juicing up pop songs and light classics with syncopated rhythms, sprightly performances, and technical wizardry. .......

the film's regrettably closed-off view of where jazz actually came from: every musician is white and the overall vision is Eurocentric in the extreme. King of Jazz is both a dazzling musical revue and a vivid reminder of the racial and ethnic tunnel vision that has long afflicted American culture. "

see: http://www.tcm.com/tcmdb/title/496604/King-of-Jazz/articles.html

 
 
 

LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:    
 

😧 John Murray Anderson. Paul Whiteman and His Orchestra, John Boles, Jeanette Loff, The Rhythm Boys (Bing Crosby, Al Rinker, Harry Barris).

"Million-dollar musical revue, shot in two-color Technicolor process, is filled with larger-than-life production numbers and wonderful songs. Highlights include Walter Lantz's cartoon sequence, Joe Venuti's swing violin, young Bing Crosby with the Rhythm Boys, and, of course, Gershwin's "Rhapsody in Blue'' (which in early Technicolor is more a rhapsody in turquoise).

Uneven, to be sure, but a lot of fun. Originally released at 105m.

What a beautiful and bizarre film!  I am grateful to TCM for airing this.  Of course its take on jazz as having come primarily from Italian, German, Scottish, Irish, and Russian sources (!) is part of the oddity, but then this was the end of the 1920s: not an era known for its critical eye on American culture.  I was surprised, though, at the wealth of cheesy tunes, but then I realized that Whiteman made a lot of money on cheesy tunes like Ramona and other Boles vehicles.  There were no hints of his earlier successes like Cherie or Moonlight -- perhaps because they were recorded when he had a contract with Victor, and at the end of the decade, he signed on with Columbia, who helped finance the film.  Within a few years, he was persona non grata with Columbia, and young people thought of Whiteman as "old people's music" as early as 1932.  He tried to come back with "Paul Whiteman's Swing Wing" with a much smaller, cheaper band, but this was an admission of defeat.  Truly, this movie is the absolute pinnacle of his career.  And the pinnacle of Paul Whiteman's career is the summit of American music in the 1920s.

Not that this is any kind of real incentive, but a remake of Rabid is due to be released later this year.

It will not be the same without the "Ivory Snow Girl".
