  1. Certainly some good ideas, cinecrazydc!

     

    Unfortunately, I doubt very seriously if "Funny Girl" would be considered for an opening night film again for the TCMFF. On Thursday, April 25, 2013, "Funny Girl" was the opening night film. Cher and Robert Osborne did the presentation of the film. As I understood it, Barbra Streisand had initially agreed to be in attendance, but later on she was named the recipient of the Chaplin Award by the Lincoln Center Film Society, and decided instead to travel to New York to receive the prize which was awarded to her by President Bill Clinton on April 22, 2013.

  2. Tonight, Tina Fey and Essentials host Alec Baldwin discuss Hitchock's "Rear Window!"

    MARY MALLORY IS COMING TO THE SILVER SCREEN OASIS WITH STEPHEN X. SYLVESTER, JUNE 17-18 TO DISCUSS HOLLYWOOD AT PLAY! Her co-author, Stephen Sylvester, author of MGM: HOLLYWOODS GREATEST BACKLOT, has a new book out in the fall, TWENTIETH CENTURY-FOX: A CENTURY OF ENTERTAINMENT, and is also scheduled to appear.

     

     

    81YnUe0uWbL._SY200__zpsyjk1qgpj.jpg

     

    Mary Mallory is a film historian, photograph archivist, and researcher, focusing on Los Angeles and early film history. She writes theatre reviews for "The Tolucan Times" and blogs for the "LA Daily Mirror." Mallory served on Hollywood Heritage, Inc.'s Board of Directors, and acts as a docent for the Hollywood Heritage Museum. As a member of the Studio City Neighborhood Council, she produced the events, "Mack Sennett and the Birth of Studio City," "80th Anniversary of Republic Pictures," and "50th Anniversary Celebration of CBS Radford Studios," and helped produce the 75th Anniversary Celebration of Republic Pictures. She has given presentations on a variety of historical topics at Hollywood Heritage Museum, Pasadena Museum of History, Conference of California Historical Societies, Egyptian Theatre, Book Soup, Pasadena First United Methodist Church, Will & Ariel Durant Library, and the Studio City Library. "Hollywood Celebrates the Holidays" has been named one of the best film books of 2015 by both Huffington Post and Ain't It Cool News.

     

    Stephen X. Sylvester is also co-author of MGM: Hollywood's Greatest Backlot with Stephen Bingen and Michael Troyan, and is also co-author of the upcoming 20th Century Fox: A Century of Entertainment with Jeffrey Thompson. He is also the former Executive Director of the Wattles Mansion and Gardens, Hollywood’s last remaining original intact estate. In addition, he has lectured on the Hollywood studio system for the Los Angeles Club, the Art Directors Guild of America, and the American Cinematheque at the Egyptian Theatre in Hollywood.

     

    From Stage 32 about Stephen X. Sylvester:

     

    "Alone among our trio of authors, Stephen was lucky enough to have explored MGM’s legendary backlots in 1968 and 1975. That experience was the genesis for this book and sparked a decades-long obsession which would ultimately lead to a collection of studio artifacts and to the accumulation of dozens of hours of oral histories and interviews with studio “survivors.” He is currently working on a documentary based on their shared backlot reminiscences. His other film projects include (as director-producer) “Robert Kinoshita: Dreams, Designs and Robots,” “Richard Anderson: An Actor’s Journey,” and “Gurdon W. Wattles: The Man and the Mansion.”

     

     

    From Lyons Press about the book:

     

    "Fans from around the world continue to be fascinated by classic-era Hollywood (1925-1960) and its larger-than-life stars. Nostalgia for this simpler, more glamorous time offers a safe and temporary escape from our complex lives. The authors capture this era with in Hollywood at Play, featuring unique and rarely seen images of such legendary stars as Audrey Hepburn, Elizabeth Taylor, Bette Davis, Joan Crawford, Marilyn Monroe, Clark Gable, Judy Garland, W.C. Fields, and Tyrone Power enjoying fun and relaxation outside of their studios.

     

    Hollywood at Play presents iconic images of the classic stars taking time out from the demands of celebrity to enjoy dancing, bike-riding, roller skating, bowling, and playing tennis; diversions offering a chance to relax and be themselves. This delightful and unique book will appeal to classic movie fans, and enthusiasts of celebrity, fashion, and Hollywood history.

     

    The photos contained in Hollywood at Play come from the collection of Eddie Brandt’s Saturday Matinee, Hollywood’s first and oldest family-owned photo archive. From the 800,000 images available in their collection the authors have chosen over 200 fascinating and rare photos to include in this book. Among the photos are eight rare photos of a young Marilyn Monroe at play; Mickey Rooney and Judy Garland frolicking at a pool party; Steve McQueen and James Garner astride McQueen’s iconic motorcycle between takes of The Great Escape;Bobby Darin and Sandra Dee out on the town; Sammy Davis Jr. hamming it up with Dean Martin and Frank Sinatra; and many others."

  5. I agree, jamesjazzguitar! I wish they'd been involved in a few more films for us to enjoy, but I'm grateful for the legacies we do have. Audrey seems to always give us hope about tomorrow, and Vivien Leigh seems to help us understand and embrace our pasts.

  7. Sue Sue, Day by Day...
    My photo archive of this year's #TCMFF 2017
     
    Monday, APRIL 3, 2017
     
    As credentialed media for the festival, I again felt lucky to be included with journalists and photographers who chronicle all the fun...
     
    I had arrived in Hollywood at little earlier than usual to do research for my upcoming book about Thelma Ritter, one of our favorite character actresses here on the TCM Message Boards, and I spent several days at the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences Margaret Herrick Library in the Hills of Beverly.

    Of course, I couldn't afford to stay in Beverly Hills, but I did bunk with a buddy who kindly shared a spare room. :-)
     
    So one of the first acts of incorrigible hooliganism that I engaged in was to sneak into the yet unopened Club TCM to see how our favorite meeting place space was shaping up....
    IMG_3731_zpsfwhojegl.jpg
    I thoroughly enjoyed this lovely mural as a backdrop for our #TCMFF shenanigans...
    Then I hopped over to Miceli's Italian restaurant, where in years past I've run into film stars and directors, and plenty of #TCMFF fans...for a little Italian din-din and dish with fellow social media fans...
    IMG_3727_zpscix1ey7k.jpg
    Doreen, Kellee, Christy, Karin, Sara, Lara, Ruth, Aimee, Pa. Heather, the top of  Wendy's head, Aurora, and Annemarie...I love how the light illuminates our feast!

    Heather and Wendy...
    Micelis%201_zpssyojmxfh.png
    Karin, Sara, Lara, Aimee, and Pam....

     

     

    Yes, I know what you've been thinking! How pretentious of me to think that my fun was better than anyone else's fun! But the pass holders I met at the festival all seemed happy and joyful to be sharing their love of classic film with other friends who enjoy the same movies. So share your photos, too!

  8. It's almost time for a Hitchcock MOOC!*

    ​   

    week1_hitchcock_lion_zpsbzjkxi6q.jpg

     

     

    Coming this Summer, sign up for the newest online film course from TCM and Ball State!

    We invite movie lovers and online learners from around the world to join us for a free, flexible online course, TCM Presents The Master of Suspense: 50 Years of Hitchcock (#Hitchcock50).

     

    This is the third free online course to be offered by TCM and Ball State, following Film Noir (2015) and Slapstick Comedy (2016).

     

    In this Hitchcock course, enjoy multimedia course materials, daily in-app messaging with movie clips, mini-games, and ongoing interactions with fellow film fans on the TCM message boards or at #Hitchcock50.

    We will explore 40+ Hitchcock films from his first film in the silent era, The Lodger (1927) to his final film five decades later, Family Plot (1977). In all, the course will reflect on Hitchcock's unparalleled 50-year career as one of cinema's most successful and unique filmmakers. The course will run concurrently with TCM's programming festival, "50 Years of Hitchcock," which will screen Hitchcock films Wednesdays and Fridays during the month of July 2017.

     

    Both the course and the associated films are designed to enrich your understanding of Alfred Hitchcock, Hollywood filmmaking, and the shifts in popular culture and film production contexts that Hitchcock used to his advantage throughout his illustrious career. You will be able to share your own thoughts about Hitchcock and cinema history with a worldwide community of students, fans, and film lovers.

    Ronald Colman is Star of the Month for July! He's never even been featured in Summer Under The Stars!

     

    'Tis a far, far better thing that they did!

     

     

    Was it a random shut-out? Or was he a prisoner of his own kismet? It was the talk of the town that he was the man who broke the bank at Monte Carlo. He wasn't from Dallas or Paris, but he was dedicated to his work. You might even say he was a bulldog for authenticity, not a masquerader like many from his hometown of Richmond, Surrey, England. Far be it from me to tarnish his image, but his daughter of Eve was the lovely Benita, two lovers who were lucky partners leading a double life under two flags. If he were king, there would be champagne for everyone. Thank goodness TCM came to its senses or there would have been devil to pay!

    Script Continuity expert Angela Allen graced the theatres of the #TCMFF with her presence again. She first came in 2010 and introduced Pandora and The Flying Dutchman starring Ava Garder and James Mason, discussing the mesmerizing cinematography of Jack Cardiff and the exploits of Ava on the set. In Lee Server's excellent bio of Ava Gardner, "Love Is Nothing," it was revealed that Allen did some of the stuntwork as Ava was seen swimming to the ship of 'The Flying Dutchman.'

     

    This year Allen was interviewed by Cari Beauchamp before a screening of 1953's "Beat The Devil" with Jennifer Jones and Humphrey Bogart, directed by John Huston. Allen was Huston's go-to-script-girl (before the more profesional term 'script continuity expert' and 'script supervisor' came in vogue) and worked on "The African Queen" and many of Huston's other projects. The popularity of "Beat The Devil" at this year's fest ensured another screening as a TBA on Sunday with both Allen and Beauchamp in attendance.

     

     

    Beauchamp, a writer and historian, is a popular presenter at every festival because of her lively, in-depth, well-informed presentations before screenings she introduces. Learn more about Beauchamp's credentials, books, and appearances here: http://caribeauchamp.com

     

    IMG_1845_zpsfc4qosjy.jpg

    Here Allen, who flew in from London to present at the festival, has a tete-a-tete in the lobby of the Hollywood Roosevelt during the closing night fiesta with credentialed media gal Kim Luperi, who works in LA.

     

    Pass holders are grateful that TCM always brings the best for festival fans!

     

    Allen also worked with Sir Carol Reed on "The Third Man." Be impressed by Angela Allen's other credentials: http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0020265/?ref_=fn_al_nm_1

  11. Fans were waiting anxiously as they watched celebrities like Barbara Bain and Tom Bergeron arrive prior to the festivities...

    On Friday, April 7, at 10 a.m., history was made in the forecourt of the TCL Chinese Theatre, as comedian and writer Carl Reiner and his son, producer and director Rob Reiner, were immortalized in cement at the annual Hand & Footprint ceremony held during the TCMFF 2017. The Reiners have the honor of being the first father-and-son duo to be honored at the same ceremony. If you were a passholder this year, you were lucky enough to be a part of this star-studded excitement!

     

    Ben Mankiewicz opened the ceremony and introduced Tom Bergeron....

     

    IMG_1948_zpsoghogsed.jpg

     

    IMG_1949_zpsoxz18uwd.jpg

     

    Then Billy Crystal spoke about Carl and Rob's accomplishments, and his experiences making "The Princess Bride"....

     

    IMG_1882_zpsjjweprk0.jpg

     

    Then Carl and Rob spoke to the audience. I thought it was so sweet how Carl had his arm around Rob.

    IMG_1946_zpsz3zhg5ch.jpg

    They're all just looking too tickled about all this attention. But I adore this photo of Carl Reiner, Rob Reiner, Billy Crystal, Ben Mankiewicz, and Norman Lear, courtesy of TCM.

    Then everybody had to get into the act!

    I've been covering festival activities since the first festival in 2010 and this event was one of the most enjoyable gatherings I've attended. Billy Crystal remarked during his introduction honoring Carl Reiner and Rob Reiner, that Carl Reiner was "psychic. He had been saying 'The Russians Are Coming, The Russians Are Coming' way back in the 1960s."

  12. Up on the rooftop of the Roosevelt on Thursday, April 6, I was enjoying a little pampering thanks to the salon staff, James and Sabin, at the Van Michael Salon.....

    OOh, and something wonderful happened on Wednesday at the pool. I completely forgot to mention how much fun pass holders had at a free social media event at 4 p.m....

     

    IMG_1919_zpsqawh0on2.jpg

     

    Before the festival officially began, social media groups had an informal gathering Wednesday afternoon, April 5, in The Garden Café area of the Hollywood Roosevelt. Here fans are anxiously waiting for actress Barbara Rush to make an appearance for her interview with writer Danny Miller..

    The 3-D Restoration of Those Redheads From Seattle was one of the best experiences I've ever had with a 3-D movie. The colors, the songs, and action, and the characters were fascinating, and seeing a wonderful film for the first time with like-minded friends makes the moment even more enjoyable.

     

    Here's the latest on that restoration from Bob Furmanek, and 3-D Film Archive, LLC:

     


    The above photo "is the original scan vs. the end result as delivered by 3-D Film Archive on THOSE REDHEADS FROM SEATTLE.

     

    The 35mm negatives - and especially the many opti...cals (dupe negative) scattered throughout the film - are terribly faded. On top of extensive color correction and flicker reduction, factor in the meticulous shot-by-shot stereoscopic alignment/panel matching by Greg Kintz and frame-by-frame dirt/damage clean-up by Thad Komorowski and you would expect a restoration of this caliber to easily run six figures. In fact, if it went to a post facility like Photokem in LA or Cineric in NY, it could easily have run $200K, or more.

     


    We brought the entire restoration in for $14K.

     

    If we had tried to raise more than ten times what we ultimately spent in bringing this rare film back to life, it would have never been seen in 3-D again. There's simply not enough profit to be made with a 3-D Blu-ray release. But for three months, we worked around the clock to make this happen. Multiple favors were pulled and many sleepless nights went into finishing the master. We believe you will be quite pleased with our results.

     

    REDHEADS was a big hit when it premiered at the TCM festival and you can own it on 3-D Blu-ray when it's released by Kino Lorber on May 23!"
