  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 mentioned earlier this is all for fun so I hope you will all enjoy it. The title I chose for the overall schedule is Eight Days A Week. *TCM STAR OF THE MONTH FOR AUGUST ? BARRY SULLIVAN* *TCM SILENT SUNDAY ? COSMIC JOURNEY (1936)* *TCM IMPORT ?

The Russians Are Coming! Additional highlights are the 1948 version of Anna Karenina, Anastasia from 1956, and The Red Danube from 1949, followed by the TCM Silent Sunday premiere of Cosmic Journey from 1936 at midnight and the TCM Import premiere of The Letter That Was Never Sent from 1962 directed by noted Russian film-maker Mikhail Kalatozov at 2:00am. 12:00AM *TCM Silent Sunday*: Cosmic Journey (1936) Tonight, TCM Silent Sunday presents the TCM premiere of Cosmic Journey, a science-fiction film produced in Russia in 1936. The original Russian title is Kosmicheskiy reys: Fantasticheskaya novella which translates as Space Travel: A Fantastic Story. A silent film from 1936? Although sound was introduced to Russian films around 1930, several studios continued making silent films for some time after. This film is set ten years into the future and tells the story of man's first space voyage to the moon. 02:00AM *TCM Import*: The Letter That Was Never Sent (1962) Tonight, The TCM Import will feature The Letter That Was Never Sent from Russian film-maker Mikhail Kalatozov. This film was originally produced in 1959 and titled The Unsent Letter. A small group of geologists are sent to the remote wilderness of the Boreal Forest in central Siberia in search of diamonds but before they can complete their mission, they become trapped by a raging forest fire and must fight to survive. The film stars Tatyana Samoylova and Vasiliy Livanov but the true star of this film is the striking black & white cinematography by Sergei Urusevsky. *Monday August 11* 06:00AM ? 08:00PM ? *DEVIL IN HER HEART* http://fan.tcm.com/_DEVIL-IN-HER-HEART/audio/959170/66470.html Today we have a full morning and afternoon of Femme Fatales. Some say that the female of our species is deadlier than the male and the eight beautiful and tempting seductresses featured here today go a long way in proving it. They are among the most scheming, conniving, plotting, and the deadliest of all in film history. So let's see just how many of these venomous ladies you can handle in one afternoon. 08:00PM ? 06:00AM ? *YOU REALLY GOT A HOLD ON ME* http://fan.tcm.com/_YOU-REALLY-GOT-A-HOLD-ON-ME/audio/959173/66470.html *Star of the Month ? Barry Sullivan* My latest favorite movie star has really got a hold on me so I'm giving him the honor of being the TCM star of the month for August, 2014. Our Star of the Month for August, Barry Sullivan was born Patrick Barry Sullivan on August 29, 1912 in New York City. Although he was never considered a major movie star, he established himself as a well known and highly respected character lead and second lead and he appeared in over 100 motion pictures from the 1930's to the 1980's. With a total of 184 credits between film and television and a career spanning over 50 years according to IMDB.com, Barry Sullivan has 2 stars along the Hollywood Walk of Fame, one for his work in motion pictures and one for his work in television. One of his best known roles came in 1953 when he portrayed movie director Fred Amiel in Vincente Minnelli's The Bad and The Beautiful. Mr. Sullivan passed away on June 6, 1994 at the age of 81. Tonight we present six great films including four TCM premieres, two of which Mr. Sullivan plays the lead role, first as the brutal captain of the Ghost in Wolf Larsen from 1958 and then as bank teller Mike Donovan in the 1954 crime thriller, Loophole. *Tuesday August 12* 06:00AM ? 08:00PM ? *ACT NATURALLY* http://fan.tcm.com/_ACT-NATURALLY/audio/959174/66470.html Today we will present eight films which feature one or more celebrities portraying themselves on film. Perhaps the most notable example would be Audie Murphy in To Hell and Back. Other highlights include Jerry Lewis in The Bellboy, Jane Russell in Fate is The Hunter and Cecil B. DeMille in Sunset Blvd. 08:00PM ? 06:00AM ? *WITHIN YOU WITHOUT YOU* http://fan.tcm.com/_WITHIN-YOU-WITHOUT-YOU/audio/959175/66470.html *Sunset Blvd. Challenge #1: Deconstructing Hollywood Blvd.* Tonight we are featuring five films which feature scenes reminiscent of the scene in Sunset Blvd. where Norma Desmond and Joe Gillis view a scene from the silent film, Queen Kelly, for lack of a better term, a film within another film. Each of our five films features another film or films seen or edited into our specific film as follows: The Projectionist (1971) ? Features clips from several films including Citizen Kane, Casablanca, It Came From Beneath the Sea, and Earth Vs. The Flying Saucers. Manhattan Murder Mystery (1993) ? Features The Lady From Shanghai and Double Indemnity. Dead Men Don't Wear Plaid (1982) ? Features clips from nearly twenty classic films including Double Indemnity, Dark passage, The Big Sleep, Deception, and The Killers. Cinema Paradiso (1989) ? Features clips from over twenty films including It's a Wonderful Life, His Girl Friday, A Farewell to Arms, and Stagecoach. Close Encounters of the Third Kind (1977) ? Features The Ten Commandments. *Wednesday August 13* 06:00AM ? 08:00PM ? *ALL YOU NEED IS LOVE* http://fan.tcm.com/_ALL-YOU-NEED-IS-LOVE/audio/959176/66470.html All you need is love. Love is all you need. Love is what makes the Earth go around after all, so today we feature eight films with love in the title. Highlights include the TCM premier of Sleep, My Love from 1948 followed by Love Affair from 1939 and Love in the Afternoon from 1957. Today, all we need is love. 08:00PM ? 06:00AM ? *ROLL OVER BEETHOVEN* http://fan.tcm.com/_ROLL-OVER-BEETHOVEN/audio/959177/66470.html *Sunset Blvd. Challenge #2: Celebrating behind-the-scenes artists* *Ludwig van Beethoven* was born in Germany on December 16, 1770 and began studying music, learning to play the piano and composing his own music at a very early age. He moved to Vienna in 1792 and quickly established a reputation as a virtuoso pianist. Not long after, at the age of only 26, he began to suffer from severe tinnitis, making it very difficult for him to hear music or conversation. His hearing continued to deteriorate until his death on March 26, 1827 at the age of 56. Having spent the previous ten years of life nearly completely deaf, it is said that his most beautiful and intricate work was achieved during this period. He is considered to be the greatest composer of all time. Although Ludwig van Beethoven was obviously never directly involved in moviemaking, since he passed away long before the first movies were ever produced, his music has been featured in countless films since the introduction of sound. Most film productions employ some sort of a musical director or musical advisor and because these professionals have chosen to incorporate the music of Ludwig van Beethoven over and over and over again, his music is featured in several hundred movies and according to IMDB.com he is credited well over 800 times in television and films. It is for this reason that I have chosen Ludwig van Beethoven as my behind the scenes artist. I've Always Loved You (1946) - Piano Sonata No. 23, Op. 57 in F Minor Walter Scharf (musical director) Carnegie Hall (1947) - Symphony No. 5 Sigmund Krumgold (musical advisor) A Song Is Born (1948) - Trio in B flat major, Op. 97 Emil Newman / Hugo Friedhofer (musical directors) Always In My Heart (1942) - Piano Sonata No. 14 in C Sharp Minor, Op. 27, No. 2 Leo F. Forbstein (musical director) Gaslight (1956) - Piano Sonata No. 8 in C minor, Op. 13 Pietro Cimini (musical advisor) *Thursday August 14* 06:00AM ? 08:00PM ? *WHEN I'M SIXTY-FOUR* http://fan.tcm.com/_WHEM-I39M-SIXTY-FOUR/audio/959178/66470.html Today we will feature eight movies all from the year 1950 and all now 64 years old. Will you still need me when I?m sixty-four? You bet we will. Highlights include King Solomon's Mines, Father of the Bride, In a Lonely Place, and a Richard Widmark double feature of Panic in the Streets with Night and the City. 08:00PM ? 06:00AM ? *PLEASE MISTER POSTMAN* http://fan.tcm.com/_PLEASE-MISTER-POSTMAN/audio/959179/66470.html *Sunset Blvd. Challenge #3: Ghostwriting* Tonight we have six films in which a letter or letters are prominently featured within the film's plot. Highlights include the TCM premiere of Dear Bridgette, followed later by The Letter and Address Unknown. *Friday August 15* 06:00AM ? 08:00PM ? *HELP!* http://fan.tcm.com/_HELP/audio/959180/66470.html Today get ready for a fast paced danger filled roller-coaster ride through nine films which feature one or more people in a life threatening situation and in desperate need of help. Will they get the help they need? I'm not telling. You'll just have to take a deep breath and watch these movies to find out. 08:00PM ? 06:00AM ? *ROCK AND ROLL MUSIC* http://fan.tcm.com/_ROCK-AND-ROLL-MUSIC/audio/959181/66470.html *FRIDAY NIGHT SPOTLIGHT ON ROCK & ROLL MUSIC IN THE MOVIES* There have been countless movies produced with stories that centered on Rock & Roll music and tonight we present six of the very best. Highlights include Bill Haley in Rock Around The Clock and Elvis Presley in Jailhouse Rock followed by American Graffiti which features the greatest rock & roll soundtrack ever as presented by the one and only Wolfman Jack. *Saturday August 16* 06:00AM ? 08:00PM ? *YELLOW SUBMARINE* http://fan.tcm.com/_YELLOW-SUBMARINE/audio/959182/66470.html Okay, I don't really have to tell anyone that today we are featuring submarine movies, right? We have seven films in all and you'll be entertained by a yellow animated submarine, a miniature submarine, and even a pink submarine. Highlights include the TCM premiere of Yellow Submarine, Irwin Allen's classic science-fiction adventure Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea, followed by three of the greatest submarine movies of all time; Run Silent Run Deep, Destination Tokyo, and Ice Station Zebra. 08:00PM ? 06:00AM ? *A HARD DAY'S NIGHT* http://fan.tcm.com/_A-HARD-DAY39S-NIGHT/audio/959183/66470.html Tonight we have seven films in which everyone is having their own hard day's night beginning with The Beatles in their debut movie A Hard Day's Night, but if you think they were having a hard day's night stay tuned for the following six films because the characters in these movies are all having an extremely hard and frightful night. Highlights include a William Castle double feature beginning with The House on Haunted Hill followed by the TCM premiere of The Night Walker. After that we present The Blob followed by tonight's TCM Underground feature, the movie made famous in The Blob, Daughter of Horror and then we finish up this hard day's night with Night of the Living Dead and William Castle's Macabre. 08:00PM *TCM Essentials*: A Hard Day's Night (1964) Tonight, TCM Essentials presents the 1964 film debut of The Beatles in A Hard Day's Night. The film, considered to be one of the best and most influential musical films of all time, made its U.S. premiere in New York City fifty years ago this week on August 11, 1964. The film was directed by Richard Lester and depicts a typical day in the life of the group at that time while featuring several of their newest hit songs. Time magazine named it as one of the all-time 100 greatest films. The film was nominated for two Academy Awards; the screenplay written by Alun Owen and for the musical score adapted by George Martin. 02:00AM *TCM Underground*: Daughter of Horror (1955) Originally released in 1955 as Dementia this film is the first and only film directed by Jack Parker. The story is based on a nightmare that Mr. Parker's secretary, Adrienne Barrett, told him about one day. He thought it would make a good movie so he set out to film it with Adrienne Barrett portraying the main character, known in the film as the Gamin. The film has no dialogue at all and features a musical score by avant-garde composer George Antheil with ethereal vocalizations (there are no lyrics) provided by Marni Nixon. In one interesting nightclub scene, well known jazz musician Shorty Rogers can be seen and heard performing. After a poor reception by critics and some trouble with censors the film was quickly sold to film producer and distributor Jack H. Harris who added a narration provided by Ed McMahon and re-titled the film Daughter of Horror. The film was made famous in 1957 when it was included in The Blob as the film being watched in the movie theater scene just as the blob arrives to wreak havoc upon the movies audience.
  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 been shown before or not is by scanning the user reviews. Often, people will write stuff like "thanks tcm for showing this one" or "hope you will show this one again soon" or "I missed the beginning when you showed this last night" etc etc. Thanks again for the help and I'll get back to work on my schedule tomorrow hopefully.
