About CntssDelave

  1. I am really interested in attending the festival, if possible. One of the major things standing in my way is the lack of a schedule. I don't care if it isn't completely fleshed out but (even with the $100 discount pre-12/18) I am very hesitant to commit to purchasing a pass without more of a schedule. I highly recommend posting a more detailed schedule before the 18th of December, in order to avoid a complete lack of successful pre-booking.
  2. CM, I will send feedback to you regarding your wish for feed back but I do have a question for you. It's weird (I've recently noticed it) but I seem to be listed as Countessdelave and CntssDelave. I get different messages and my posting history is completely different. I'm the same person. Have you ever had this happen? I remember trying to send messages to you in the past and the ID wasn't accepted unless it was exactly capitalized the same-maybe a similar issue for you?. Maybe this is really a matter for the TCM staff but I certainly don't want the confusion or appear to be two separate people. Edited by: CntssDelave on Nov 3, 2009 6:47 AM
  3. Loveslilacs, Thank you for your kind words of appreciation. It looks like you're new around here. Does this mean that you may join the next Programming Challenge?
  4. Gagman, I just happened into this thread. Thanks for the links to *Fig Leaves*, It's a favorite of mine. I have a very poor copy but I caught a decent print showing at the Pacific Film Archive a few years ago. I hope that it will be released onto dvd soon. It's a lot of fun.
  5. Filmlover, I loved your schedule! "Plan Your Day...the TCM Way". Very clever. I am such a huge William Powell fan and appreciated the contrasting lineup of the Gentleman Detective and Phillip Manlowe. I also really liked your Saturday schedule and White House concept-bravo! Robert Donat is wonderful as your S.O.M. I'd love to see *The Ghost Goes West* on TCM.
  6. *Programming Notes: Challenge #14* *Week of April 18-24, 2010* I picked the week of April 18-24 after I fleshed out the White House assignment. Since I was spending an entire day on ?The Environment?, I chose Earth Day, April 22nd. I have used films from studios previously disallowed from the challenges (but okayed for Premieres by Cinemaven). Sunday. Learn To Kern is my homage to the music of Jerome Kern. 9 Lives of a Cat includes nine films, starting with *The Cat and the Fiddle* (which has music by Jerome Kern). TCM has not shown this in years. Originally, I wanted to program *Le Chat*, with Jean Gabin and Simone Signoret (1971) but Cinmaven correctly put me in my place and said ?no? to anything after 1969. That left *La Chatte* as my TCM Import. Monday. Lives 7,8 and 9 continue. If you?ve not seen *Cat Women of the Moon*, give yourself a good laugh. It?s very campy and public domain. Marie Windsor? Afterwards, you?ll want to watch *The Narrow Margin*. The evening is devoted to writer Thorne Smith and includes a Premiere of *Nightlife of the Gods*. Tuesday. Towhead Tuesday is an entire day devoted to blondes. I love Alice White and would like to convince TCM to showcase her films (especially ones that haven?t been on TCM for years). *It?s a Great Life* has the Duncan Sisters and a great little dance known as the Hoosier Hop. A long time ago, I noticed just how many college films Betty Grable made. It?s a good thing that she escaped to Broadway or she might have continued to play co-eds for her entire career. *Collegiate* and *College Swing* are Premieres. There are a lot of women on this day (but not all). Wednesday. There are so many stars who died young or tragically. I?ve scheduled one film for each of a number of them. My Star of the Month is the wonderful, unique and talented Thelma Ritter. Thursday. I chose the Environment as my theme for the entire day. I had many films and nuances of subject matter to choose from but I had to do serious paring of the schedule. Yes, it?s Earth Day. I wanted to get the politicians in a light mood with *It Grows on Trees* and *Jon & Kate Plus 8 Go Green* (please forgive me but I couldn?t resist-I?ve never watched it). *Calling Hedy Lamarr* is about Hedy?s inventions in communications. The mandatory lunch break with Michael Moore is the only way that the White House could get him off their back. This way he has a captive audience (who can?t leave) for 45 minutes. *Life of The Party* has one of the most bizarre scenes: the two lovers smoke cigarettes and sing ?Let?s Have Another Cigarette?as if they were making love. I included *Dangerous Mission* because it has beautiful scenes of Glacier National Park, in color. *Plagues & Pleasures on the Salton Sea* is a great little documentary. Very entertaining. Friday. Friday I used the one theme for the evening and premiered *Louisiana Hussy* for TCM Underground. Saturday. It?s Shirley MacLaine?s birthday and I get to start out with a very funny MGM comedy that hasn?t been on in years: *Ask Any Girl*. Shirley?s a secretary caught between Gig Young and David Niven. Maybe TCM Programmer will get the hint. Saturday?s Essential is *Laura*. Need I say more? The remainder of the evening is programmed with more great film noirs, including a Premiere of *Phantom Lady*. *PREMIERES* *La Chatte* *Night Life of the Gods* *Collegiate* *College Swing* *Louisiana Hussy* *Laura* *Phantom Lady*
  7. Okay here it goes-I just squeaked in. Notes to follow. I lost most of my formatting. I can't wait to read all the schedules.

  8. Okay, CM, I'm on board. Am I still correct that I can use any foreign studio film and call it a premiere or does it mean that I can only use foreign films that have previously shown on TCM (unless they were released via any of the approved studios on the list)? Please clarify that point. Thanks.
  9. CM, Sorry for another basic question but my TCM import choice doesn't fit into any of the studio libraries listed (probably most of the imports would not). Do I use it anyhow and mark it as a premiere? Also, my choice is a 1971 film with Jean Gabin and Simone Signoret. Can't we just say that any film with those two together _is_ a classic? I _will_ abide by your ruling, Countess Delave.
  10. Congratulations, Audreyforever! What a great job. I loved Kathryn Grayson as your S.O.M. choice. You had some really good themes. I always enjoy seeing the early or unusual films of any star. I'd definitely be watching during your week.
  11. Wow! Great schedule kingrat! Joan Bennett is perfect. I loved how you did the White House programming and then added the Presidents theme to follow. I think Margaret Lockwood is quite FAB and it was nice to see you honor her. Great job, Kingrat!
  12. CineMaven, Originally I was only planning on using films allowed in the rules of the challenge (i.e. no Fox and Universal films unless previously shown). Now I must ask for clarification of the White House programming rules. Because it's the White House, can we show ANY studio's film (as we'll have likely immunity with all of the political clout in the room)?
