    August: Summer Under the Stars:




    Can anyone bring this entire list up to date?

  2. Oh, was it? I don't remember that. 

    Yes, it was a Criterion release on laserdisc. I don't know exactly the year it was released. There were many classic MGM/Warner/RKO films released on laserdisc through Criterion a long time ago. Here is the link on Wikipedia: 




    That is probably why they are re-releasing The Asphalt Jungle. There may be hope for other classic movies (mostly from the Turner library) worthy of the Criterion treatment.

  3. I just looked through the films on my Amazon Prime watch list (I had 16 pages and it took awhile to go through it). All the Paramount films will be leaving Prime; and all the MGM/UA titles are leaving; but a few of the Republic titles will remain. The Kino, Criterion and Fox titles also remain.  


    There is only one Universal classic on Amazon Prime and it's staying too. I plan to feature it as one of my essentials in October-- the 1943 version of THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA.

    The Criterion copy of "The Wicked Lady" is leaving Prime.

  4. Yes. I see that. I am reviewing SCARLET STREET as my essential this weekend. 


    I am still going to stick to the schedule I devised in the middle of the summer, and hopefully people will be able to find these films somewhere and watch them. Some people have them on discs in their home video collections.


    Related to Amazon Prime...I just sent an email to a friend of mine in Los Angeles who does projects at Paramount. Hopefully he can find out where those films are being moved to-- my guess is that Paramount might put them on the studio's YouTube page. It usually takes my friend a day or two to reply, but when he does, I will share any information I receive about this.

    Thanks! I appreciate it. I hope the Paramount Vault picks up films such as "About Mrs. Leslie," "Alaska Seas," and "Knock on Wood." However, I wonder if the new streaming service FilmStruck will pick up the discarded titles or is it exclusively Criterion?

  5. Sounds like things are changing. I just called in to ask about this, and they are saying it's because of the content provider (namely the studios are canceling these contracts with Amazon). Kind of disappointing to say the least. We'll have to see where these titles end up.

    The last three "essentials" you mentioned, "The House Across the Bay," "Trade Winds," and "Vogues of 1938" are also leaving Prime. 

  6. This is an alert concerning Amazon Prime members. I checked my watchlist which consists of classic films and I just found out that almost all of the classic films (mostly from the MGM, Paramount, and Republic libraries) are leaving Prime at the end of this month. I'm not sure if they'll ever return. Does anyone have any idea what's going to happen to them or where they will go to? Please let me know.

  7. I have been told it is often due to differences in contracts. The owner of a movie might have sold the right to market the movie to television to one distributor and the right to market the movie on VHS/DVD to different distributor.


    It could be argued that the owner did not sell rights to stream the movie to any other party and so they own that right still.


    It could be argued that streaming rights are subset of television rights and so distributor who owns those rights owns also streaming rights.


    It could be argued that streaming rights are direct-to-consumer arrangements and so distributor who markets VHS/DVD owns streaming rights.


    The exact wording in any particular contract may vary slightly from wording in similar contract by different parties and so this gives footing for arguments.


    A truism of American life is that if any point can be argued then there are attorneys anxious to argue it. It may be with many movies that cost of settling legal dispute re: rights may be higher than amount of revenue which could be expected from licensing the movie.

    That's understandable. However, there is another thing that is confusing to me. When a film has been shown on the WatchTCM app and placed on-demand, that same particular film is suddenly blocked the next time. For example, Yankee Doodle Dandy (1942) has been available on the WatchTCM app before, but suddenly, on the night of this year's Fourth of July broadcast, it was blocked from the app. How does that happen when one time a film is shown on-demand and the next time it's blocked?

  8. There's a difference between leasing a film to be shown at a festival and leasing the rights to show a film on television. The television rights are usually more difficult. There may be an archival 35mm print which can be shown at a festival, but not on TV. These days films usually have to be digitized to be shown on television. If the films are not already digitized, that is an additional expense for someone to pay.


    Most films which are shown at the TCM Festival are shown on TCM within a year or so, but not all. Whistle Down the Wind was shown at the festival in 2011, but never on TCM.


    James is absolutely right about the Paramount films, many of which are now owned by Universal.

    Don't forget about leasing the rights to show a film on mobile devices. I'm still trying to understand why certain films cannot be shown on these devices.

  9. For those who own a Roku device, the PlayStation Vue service is now available on Roku and it's also now available nationwide. The following prices for each package are: The Access Slim package (55+ channels) is $29.99 a month, the Core Slim package (70+ channels) is $34.99 a month, and the Elite Slim package (100+ channels) is $44.99 a month. Unfortunately, TCM is only available in the Core and Elite packages.

  10. I'm just curious, but is the September 5th daytime lineup a salute to the annual Telluride Film Festival?They have done the festival tribute on TCM every Labor Day by showing films that have been recognized by Telluride. Is it going on this year or is it not?

  11. I'm sorry, as much as I like Anchorman (2004), I don't think of the movie as a slapstick classic, just a comedy. It doesn't belong on TCM, not for a very, very long time. Airplane! (1980) deserved to be part of the slapstick spotlight lineup more than Anchorman. It feels like a slap across the face when I think of the programming department choosing a 12-year-old comedy over a 36-year-old comedy masterpiece.

  12. ANCHORMAN (2004)?!! ARE THEY SERIOUS?!! What they should have done is to include a certain little modern slapstick classic called AIRPLANE! (1980) instead! That would have completed the prime time ZAZ triple feature. What is going on with the programming?!

  13. With the 2015 Summer Under The Stars festival coming to a close, can anyone count and post the total number of stars featured in August to date. since the festival's inception in 2003, as well as any other fun statistics about the festival (such as the number of times each star has been showcased), please?

  14. I'm trying to understand how the licensing of films to be aired on television is different from the licensing of films being aired on computers and mobile devices? Why can't we watch certain movies on these devices? Is the programming department trying to fix the problem? How do we know which movies are being blocked? It just doesn't make sense! It's also frustrating!
