  1.      I’ve had a few very sad days since I’d heard about my friend Moira Finnie’s passing on Friday from heart failure.

    Moira was instrumental in her connections to the film community, the TCM Website, The Silver Screen Oasis website and Facebook page, and wrote beautifully about film, actors, and production staff on Movie Morlocks for TCM, and her own website blog, The Skeins. As an administrator of The Silver Screen Oasis website, she hosted many authors to discuss their upcoming books mainly focusing on classic film. Since Moira became a devoted fan of French actor Jean Gabin, an invitation from TCM to introduce his film “Touchez Pas au Grisbi” seated her next to another film historian, Robert Osborne, in 2012, for her television debut.

        More personally, I had been interacting with Moira on the TCM Message Forums since 2005 or 2006. She became one of the first people to encourage me to write about film and ultimately, the life of Thelma Ritter. Her role as a mentor in my life is a treasured memory. Her kindness, patience, knowledge and humor make her the kind of friend that is sometimes rare to encounter. You are missed, dear Moira.

    TCM's lovely tribute to the legacy of Sidney Poitier from a few years ago....

    TCM's Tumblr article from 2019 by Theresa Brown can be found here.

    His dedication to his craft and his dedication to the vision he had of his own personal responsibilities created a life's work that endeared him to the film-going public and the world.

  3. Latest Fest Update!
     

    TCM TO HONOR LILY TOMLIN AND LEONARD MALTIN AT THE 2022 TCM CLASSIC FILM FESTIVAL

    TCM is excited to announce we will honor iconic actress and comedian Lily Tomlin with a hand and footprint ceremony in the courtyard of the world-famous TCL Chinese Theatre Imax® in Hollywood during the 13th TCM Classic Film Festival on Friday, April 22.

    The third episode of The Plot Thickens dropped last Tuesday. I’ve been enjoying all the stories that I hadn’t heard before about Lucille Ball. 
    Hope you all have, too!

    It’s Katurday on TCM’s Summer Under The Stars Celebration! 
     

    Enjoy some Hepburn all day!!  

    In the meantime, I know festival fans are still waiting for a 2022 announcement, but TCM Staff are being cautious. I have to muster more patience. In a pandemic-free year, we might have already had festival dates.

     

    in the meantime, check out Eddie Muller’s Dark City or Christina Rice’s new book on Jane Russell at Larry Edmunds Bookshop. They ship anywhere!

    Rest In Peace, Miss Jane Withers. We bonded over our jewelry at the #TCMFF in 2013. Miss Withers was energetic and lively. Her charisma warmed up any room, and she cordially shared many of her memories with the #TCMFF fans.

  9. While all  #TCMFF fans are still suffering from not connecting in LA, our virtual fests have helped to solidify our need to congregate if only online. Social media has also allowed festival friends to find ways to "be together apart.”  But this August, we all hope to hear about #TCMFF 2022! Stay tuned to TCM on the channel or follow the TCM Twitter feed or Facebook updates. We may all  be able to be together again this spring!

    Here's hoping all our passes won't be virtual in 2022!
