  1. "My invitation must have been lost in the mail." "You don't write. You don't call." I didn't get a survey and I have lots of comments to add. Oh wait, maybe that's why I didn't get it. ;-)
  2. My apologies if this has been addressed elsewhere in TCM City, but Classic Film Union site seems to be down. It's not allowing me to go past the initial screen (to go to my profile, see the Members section, etc.) You probably already know about this, but thought I'd bring it up just in case. Thanks you guys, for all you do! TCM is my favorite realm!
  3. Ah, the ATA; I used to do editing work there. Thanks for the link! (With apologies to FriscoPaul for the quick tangent from his question regarding Essential Films.)
  4. {quote:title=ValentineXavier wrote:}Well, the king of found footage is Craig Baldwin, in SF. He has an alternative/exp. movie theater there. He helps experimental filmmakers find just the right found footage for use in their films.{quote} What's the theater? I live in San Francisco and thought I was up on local film venues (just got in from an afternoon at the Roxie), so I'm very curious about this one.
  5. {quote:title=hlywdkjk wrote:}I feared that might be confusing. The titles accompanying the cement photos are of films that were being shown at the Film Festival this year and not of the premiere when they were having their hand and foot prints put into the cement. The Judy Garland ceremony took place during the premiere of *Babes In Arms*. Ginger Rogers was for *Kitty Foyle*, I think). ...Sorry it was confusing.{quote} No worries; I'm easily confused and now it makes complete sense. And it was a nice test. It shows what freaks we are: you show a photo and we'll pinpoint it to a da
  6. {quote:title=sazball wrote:}It's leaving from Miami, but your suggestion about Where the Boys Are and Paula Prentiss is excellent.{quote} Guess I'll have to switch to "Moon Over Miami" then! {quote:title=sazball wrote:}Oh, we're stopping in Key West. Maybe a Hemingway film, like the rarely seen The Breaking Point with John Garfield and Patricia Neal.{quote} Or "Old Man and the Sea". "Key Largo" is an excellent idea, soulsalsa!
  7. I wonder who bought them? What will they do with them? I keep fantasizing that somehow they'll end up at the Smithsonian. Kyle, I'm curious about the movie titles accompanying the photos. For instance, the Judy Garland shot reads "Girl Crazy", but the photo looks a few years previous to that movie. Ginger's picture looks circa 1940, rather than 1933 or 1937. Are these just some movies for which they signed the wet cement, but not necessarily the actual photo of the named event?
  8. Luxury Liner Now, Voyager An Affair to Remember One Way Passage Ship of Fools A Night to Remember Gentlemen Prefer Blondes Are they leaving from Lauderdale? If so, opening night is "Where the Boys Are" with an interview with Paula Prentiss.
  9. {quote:title=SueSueApplegate wrote:}And lzcutter and Countess, dears, I absolutely adore the transportation theme! Even if it just focused on trains... *Strangers on a Train*, *The Harvey Girls* ("The Atchison, Topeka, and the Santa Fe"), *Brief Encounter*, *Young Frankenstein*, *North by Northwest*, *Murder On The Orient Express*, *Julia*, *The General*, *The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance*, the possibilities are endless.... {quote} Please promise me you'll include Since You Went Away in the train fest. This Selznick beauty features two of my favorite train scenes: Jennifer Jones' f
  10. {quote:title=ChorusGirl wrote:}The rarities...HOOPLA, WENT THE DAY WELL, NIGHT FLIGHT....were all sell outs. Here's hoping we will get even more next year!{quote} {quote:title=yanceycravat wrote:}Seeing WENT THE DAY WELL with a full house was, for me, the highlight of the festival. I was fortunate enough to attend all three of those screenings. I have to say they were the most memorable events for me. Sitting with an audience who had never seen those movies before was truly and extraordinary experience.{quote} I couldn't get into either Went the Day Well or Night Flight! Torture. I'm re
  11. {quote:title=ChorusGirl wrote:}Ann Rutherford has been at the festival 2 years in a row now...though not to introduce a film. I'd love to hear her talk. I dont want to sit through GWTW or an ANDY HARDY movie while I'm there, but something like ORCHESTRA WIVES would be fantastic...I would think that movie would be a hit with the festival crowd.{quote} OMG, I would love to see Orchestra Wives on the big screen. And after the Nicholas Brothers tribute this year, there are a lot of new fans that would also get a kick out it. To have Ann Rutherford discuss it would make it a "must see" attract
  12. {quote:title=yanceycravat wrote:}Despite it being against policy people happily held seats and places in line and I never heard anyone complain. Folks shared memories about actors they met and movies they saw. Ideas and comments regarding all things TCM flowed freel.{quote} The queue numbers kept line saving complications to a minimum. If they didn't have the number they couldn't get in the line earlier. However, I did witness one very minor skirmish at the Egyptian when a fellow came in and saw an empty seat. The lady next to the seat said she was saving it; to which he replied, "That's a
  13. {quote:title=CineMaven wrote:}I know, I know... you've all seen The Nicholas Brothers in film, but to see their routines back-to-back, in one fell swoop...well, it is simply breathtaking.{quote} This was one of the highlights of the Festival. Of course, it was amazing to see their routines back-to-back, but what shot this presentation over the moon for me were the home movies that were included; especially of the brothers dancing in the middle of the street on the studio lot with Fred Astaire. The Nicholas Brothers were the greatest. A very moving tribute.
