  1. Oh my gosh, thank you SO much! You do not know how amazing you've just made me feel! This is my first time doing the challenge, and I didn't think that anyone would vote for me! This is such an honor! Ya-hoo!! If you want to cast your vote, you can either: type up who you want to vote for and post on this voting thread, or send who you want to vote for in a Privtae Message to kingrat. That's what I did. Thanks so much again! Bette Davis 19
  2. gagman, itis not too late to vote! The voting stops on March 12th, its only March 5th! Please vote! By the way, I was the person who included The Black Pirate! Thanks for your kudos! I also was the one who scheduled The Man Who Laughs! I'm so glad that you like my schedule! I love hearing what people think (a couple of votes wouldn't be bad either! ) Bette D 19
  3. I am so sad that I can't vote for myself. :_| X-( But, hmmmm, who to vote for................
  4. Now, my main topic for my films are the 1920s and 1930s ones, as you probably have seen. They usually get unnoticed because: the quality, the sound, the lines, and the technology. I wanted to give many of these unseen masterpieces a chance. For the first day, I centered around that lovable dog Skippy (a.k.a Asta) for the daytime. I mean, come on, who doesn't love him? In primetime, I centered around the ever-creepy Lon Chaney. Not only are his films landmarks, but they're also really fun to watch. I also included "When The Clouds Roll By" as my silent because, not only do I think it is amazing, but there is rarely a silent on that was made before 1920. I also included "L'Inhumane" as my foreign film. I originally scheduled it as my cult film, because, it is a 1920s silent sci-fi that is really good. Sci-fis were SUPER rare in the 1920s. For the second day, I centered around early Hitchcock for the daytime, because I thought that it would be fun to watch the movies slowly get better and better and better throughout the day. And, I love Hitchcock! For the primetime, I centered around late-20s musicals. I am a HUGE fan of early musicals, and they are so often overlooked. They are also really entertaining! For the third day, I centered around the too-too elegant world of art deco. i am a huge fan of art deco, and i really enjoy films about it. For primetime, I did my four oscar selections, and then went on to celebrate the birthday of Buddy Ebsen. For my first oscar, I gave it to Bette Davis for Of Human Bondage. Almost any classic movie fan knows about this, and everyobe agrees that Bette should have won. But, for some reason, she wasn't even nominated! ARG! I next gave one to Gold Diggers of 1933 for its amazing music (which I play to no end on iTunes!). I gave my third Oscar to Dwight Frye in Darcula. I know that this may be a little surprising, but Dwight Frye is an amazing actor that never got a chance. His performance in Dracula is actually really frightening, and even most today would agree that he gives a chilling performance as one of Dracula's insane minions, My last Oscar, I gave to Footlight Parade for its beautiful Bubsy Berkeley choreography. For the fourth day, I centered around early color movies. I personally really enjoy early color movies, they are really fascinating. For primetime, I celebrated Leslie Howard's birthday with my favorite movies of his. For the fifth day, it is time for my SOTM! On her birthday, my cousin - Bette Davis! I know she has been SOTM twice before, so, to change it up, I focused on her movies that no one has seen, instead oof the well-known ones on DVD. Plus, I really wanted to see her early movies that aren't available anywhere. For the sixth day, I did, what I'm sure you have all wanted to see, STAR'S FIRSTS. Unless their first movie is widely available on DVD (very unlikely), firsts are never seen, but, they are always wanted to be seen. For my last day, I did early sci-fis all day, because, I love 1940s and 1950s sci-fi, so, even earlier sounds like even more fun! I also included the incomporable "42nd Street" for my Essentials, and, the freaky "The Man Who Laughs" as my cult. I hope you all like my schedule! Bette

There it is! Bette
  6. Here comes my schedule- FINALLY! I don't know about everyone else, but my schedule took me about six hours to make! I hope you all like it! And, just to warn all of you 1960s movie lovers, I only have one movie that was made after 1959. About 3/4 of my movies are from the best decade for movies- the 1930s. I also have a lot for the 1920s. I've noticed MANY 1950s movies on TCM, and not so many 1930s and earlier movies. So, here we go!
  7. Thank you SO much Movie Gal and James! It makes me feel SO HAPPY to know how people are feeling about my thread! But, I won't be able to post any new pics or threads here for four or five days because I am working on the 21st Unofficial Programming Challenge, sorry! But anyone who wants to post something here can while I'm working! Bette
  8. I wouldn't mind doing that job! I know what you mean, I uploaded information for Bette Davis about four months ago, because on her page they got something wrong, and I haven't gotten any word about it and nothing has changed. But they're so busy, I just don't bother them about it!
  9. Here's another one I just found. Bette is usually in dramatic roles, so I thought it would be nice to find a picture of her genuinely laughing and, from my guess, 1941-1943:
  10. Hi! I will not be around a computer all weekend, so I thought I should post a couple of cute pics before I left! A cute picture of Bette with an ice cream cone, from, by my estimate, 1933-1935.
  11. I had a question about the schedule. I didn't know if for the cult film you could do a foreign one.
  12. Bette Fun Fact o' The Day: Did you know that, for Jezebel, Bette thought there was another, almost unknown actor who she thought would be better cast a Preston Dillard? The actor was John Wayne, who at the time was working at Republic Studios, and who did have the toughness built into him more than Fonda. Bette
  13. Bette with Henry Fonda the year before they made Jezebel.
