  6. Thanks, James. Mary Astor has my admiration, and I'm hoping we will have a new documentary about her life completed soon. Maybe we might even see it at the TCM Film Festival. I'd love that. Sue X 2 Sad News Coming Out of Hollywood Today... Actress Connie Sawyer died peacefully at the age of 105 at her in Woodland Hills, CA. With more than 140 TV and film credits to her name, Sawyer was known as Hollywood’s oldest working actress who worked through late 2017. Sawyer was born on November 27, 1912, in Pueblo, Colo. Her career in entertainment began at the age of eight when she won a talent contest in Oakland. At 18 years old, she landed her first Vaudeville show in Santa Cruz. Legendary singer, comedian, and actress Sophie Tucker became Sawyer’s mentor before she went on to Broadway where she played Miss Wexler in A Hole in the Head. She would later take the same role in the film adaptation starring Frank Sinatra. Her other film credits include The Way West, Ada and The Man in the Glass Booth. To many, she is recognized as the lady in Dumb and Dumber who stole Jim Carrey’s character’s wallet. She also appeared in The Pineapple Express, as well as When Harry Met Sally. She has numerous TV credits which span six decades. This includes The Mary Tyler Moore Show, Hawaii Five-O, Dynasty, Murder, She Wrote, Archie Bunker’s Place, Home Improvement, Seinfeld, Will & Grace, ER, The Office, and How I Met Your Mother. Most recently she appeared in Showtime’s Ray Donovan as James Woods’ mother. In addition to her being highlighted in the documentaries Showfolk and Troupers, she published her autobiography, I Never Wanted To Be a Star – And I Wasn’t. Sawyer is survived by her two daughters Lisa Dudley, Julie Watkins, four grandchildren Hannah Stubblefield, Sam Dudley, Emily and Carrie Watkins and three great-grandchildren, Sebastian, Adam and Maya. (From MSN News) She recently appeared on TCM with Ben Mankiewicz during the Motion Picture and Television Fund programming and was seen in the documentary Showfolk.

  7. Tomorrow on Noir Alley ... Act of Violence with Robert Ryan and Janet Leigh... Director Fred Zinneman and Oscar-winner Mary Astor...
  8. Tonight, 1953’s The Band Wagon returns on The Essentials. A TCMFF 2016 screening at the Chinese Multiplex proved popular with many fans, and I enjoyed seeing it with so many wonderful friends... I think my favorite number is “The Triplets.”
  9. TCM Primetime has African-American films directed by Sidney Poitier, Julie Dash, Ivan Dixon, and more. A special Red Foxx short comes on early in the a.m. Director Julie Dash, a guest on TCM’s Trailblazing Women In Film, helmed the moving feature Daughters of the Dust, scheduled tonight at 10 p.m. Central, after Poitier’s fabulous London love story, A Warm December.

  12. TCM Senior Researcher Alexa Foreman, Miss Peggy Cummins, and VP of Talent, Darcy Hettrich in Club TCM in 2012.... Femme Fatale Peggy Cummins, a TCM Film Festival Special Guest in 2012, was a lovely lady. She told me that she was still amazed and surprised at the popularity of her film, Gun Crazy, when I visited with her at the lobby of the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel in 2012. Cummins had just flown in from her home in England, but seemed thrilled to be back in Hollywood to share her experiences with pass holders. Her soft, lilting voice and her open manner seemed light years away from her performance as Annie Laurie Starr in the 1950 film she helped introduce with Eddie Muller, the Czar of Noir, and Director of the Film Noir Foundation. Peggy Cummins and Eddie Muller at a film noir festival in Zagreb, Yugoslavia...

  13. Thanks, James! Your kind comments are much appreciated!! I enjoy your posts, too!! Happy New Year!!
  14. Tonight is TCM's New Year's Eve Marathon of the Thin Man series starring William Powell and Myrna Loy! "For this year's most sophisticated holiday evening, TCM has gathered all six entries from a movie series that defined urbane elegance: the Thin Man films. So ring in the New Year in style with one of the great screen couples-- Nick and Nora Charles, as played by William Powell and Myrna Loy. These glamorous Manhattanites trade quips while sipping martinis and solving murders with the aid of their famous wirehaired terrier, Asta.The movies are shown in chronological order, ranging from the original The Thin Man (1934) to the final entry in the series, Song of the Thin Man (1947). In between are After the Thin Man (1936), in which the Charleses encounter rising star James Stewart; Another Thin Man (1939), which adds a baby to the mix; Shadow of the Thin Man (1941), the last of the series to be directed by W.S. Van Dyke; and The Thin Man Goes Home (1945), with Nick visiting his family in New England and, of course, becoming embroiled in a murder case."
  15. Merry Christmas and many blessings to you, Joe! You are missed.
  16. "Sinterklaas Kapoentje" St. Nicholas Day Song Sinterklaas Kapoentje, Leg wat in mijn schoentje, Leg wat in mijn laarsje, Dank je Sinterklaasje!

There are no films listed from 8 p.m. December 13, until 6 a.m. December 13, the next day. Could there be a block of special interviews from the TCM Film Festival? Could they be announcing a new permanent host? Could there be special editions of Private Screenings with Robert Osborne interviewing former guests? Guess I'll have to tune in and find out.
