  1. That's a good one! LOL I did not know that was a W. C. Fields quote. I actually thought this guy I used to work with made it up himself because he would say it so often! Too funny!
  2. Congrats SansFin for the winning schedule. You obviously have a natural talent for doing these challenges. Any job offers from TCM yet? Soooo, movies that take place in February? Brrrrrrrrrrr that's cold!!!
  3. Thanks again to all who have tried to help solve this mystery. I must tell you all that the term I read about was something very technical sounding in regards to film-making and not a very common word or term. In fact, the one time I read about it is the only time I have ever heard it. On the positive side, I am more determined than ever to find it, and someday I will. Thanks very much to all of you for your help and thoughts.
  4. SansFin, Yes indeed. I would have liked to use the proper term in my notes. I was reading an article about 5 years ago that mentioned it. It was a movie-technical term that was nothing even remotely close to (referencing, shout-out, sampling) everyday use. There have been several occasions since I first read about it when I have tried to research it. I had no idea it would be so difficult to locate the correct terminology. I will find it someday though.
  5. My program schedule is for the week of August 10 thru 16, 2014. I chose this week because it was on August 11th 1964 that The Beatles first film, A HARD DAY'S NIGHT premiered in New York City and since 2014 is the 50 year anniversary of their arrival here in the United States the entire schedule is based on themes relating to Beatles song titles. Entirely for fun, we will celebrate not only the music of The Beatles, but also Rock & Roll music in general as well as the music of the famed composer Ludwig van Beethoven. As an added bonus this schedule even includes a soundtrack. As I mention
  6. This is exactly what I was referring to: from the link to There's no "B" in Move. *The B-Movie The Monster That Challenged the World from 1957 has appeared in at least two other horror films; Piranha (the original 1978 version, being watched by one of the guards from the military camp) and Motel Hell (it's the movie being played at the drive-in).* The article doesn't mention what this film-making technique is though. I will find out one day!

  8. I want to thank all of you who replied to my question. Although none of these terms is the one I had read about previously, they were all quite informative. I researched all of them extensively in hopes of uncovering what I was looking for but to no avail. In doing so however I did find many other interesting facts and trivia so it was not at all a waste in any way. Again, thank you to all of you who responded and if I ever do come upon this term or word, I will return and post it here for everyone. Thanks again!
  9. When one movie is shown within another movie - for example, in National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation there is a scene where one of the children is sitting and watching It's A Wonderful Life on the TV; There is a word or a term for this. Can anyone tell me what that word or phrase is? I did read it once and I just can't remember it.
  10. Hello everyone, I really don't want to come off sounding like a total beeee-otch but.. 8:00pm *THE ESSENTIALS: Tales of Manhattan* (1942) George Sanders & Edward G Robinson, dir Julien Duvivier FOX 118min (EXEMPT PREMIERE) I asked beforehand and I was told that *THE ESSENTIALS* time slot did not qualify as an Exempt Premiere. Q: Is the TCM Essentials movie exempt from the premieres? A: The Essentials is not exempt.
  11. Thanks Countessdelave and Capuchin for the positive comments. Also thanks Capuchin for the tips on editing and formatting. I did not read those in time and it looks as though even if I had I am out of luck anyways as I did begin most of my lines with spaces; all of them except the ones with the time, and I did skip a line between each movie. I tried to follow the format on the TCM monthly schedule and it looks really good as a word.doc - I was horrified to see how it looked when it posted here. But again, thanks to both of you for the positive feedback.
  12. Wow! This message board has really taken the liberty to completely reformat both of my posts. Not sure where the html code came from - at all, and my schedule and notes didn't really have all those spaces either.

  14. Greetings and thanks for the welcoming. Thank you Countessdelave and Capuchin for answering my questions. I really do appreciate it and that clears a few things up for me. As you might have guessed, my problem lies in the amount of premieres being limited to 10 while trying to figure out if a certain film has been shown before or not. I think only a small percentage of the films that have been shown actually have one of those programming articles written about them. By the way, if nobody has ever mentioned this before, and someone probably has, another possible way of finding if a movie has b
