  1. I believe I made this comment back in 2016, which was the last time the ‘360 degrees’ Oscar format was used, but I'm sorry to say for me this is more of a gimmick and doesn’t really add much to the information conveyed in the presentation of the films. Once the host mentions the common actor, they would go straight to talking about the current film on its own with possibly little or no relationship to other films being shown that day. The format has a rather limited connection to the Oscars or the nature of Oscar films in general. It is undoubtedly a challenge for the programmers to pick 360 films that are all connected in a chain of actors, but other than being a fun sort of trick I’m not sure it’s worth it for the viewer. That may also be a reason why there are no shorts being listed in the initial schedules - they may be showing the schedules for the sake of the 360 Degrees game where all the films are connected and don’t want the shorts that are unrelated to the format to get in the way. I guess we will see if shorts are added in to the details of daily/weekly/monthly schedules as we go through the month.
  2. I don't know of a way to track shorts that will be shown during the 31 Days of Oscar in February. (There currently are no shorts that are listed in TCM's advanced schedules for February.) I would guess that some shorts may appear in the schedules as the dates draw nearer, but it is very unpredictable. The only tip I can provide is to try to check the weekly schedule format in addition to daily schedules, as sometimes the weekly format gives more details on the shorts. I would also say that for the shorts that are shown, I would not count on them appearing on WatchTCM. Some may be shown there, some may not. Again, it's very unpredictable. Sorry that this is not a more encouraging reply.
  3. I think this is a case of the page looking different depending on the window size. On my browser: - If you stretch the window to make it wide, the icons and message titles are shown. - For a narrower window, only the message title and user name are shown. - If you make it narrower still, only the icon is shown. This would also explain why the view would be different on hand-held devices with smaller screen sizes.
  4. I've checked my cable guide, online sources, and the TCM listings and I don't see any indication that Until the End of the World has been scheduled. At this point I would guess that your local listings are in error. As some confirmation, normally the TCM movie title page will show if the film is currently scheduled - http://www.tcm.com/tcmdb/title/94535/Until-the-End-of-the-World/ and there is nothing listed there for Until the End of the World. Similarly, the pages for Au Revoir les Enfants and Lacombe, Lucien still show them scheduled for this evening - http://www.tcm.com/tcmdb/title/67786/Au-Revoir-Les-Enfants/ http://www.tcm.com/tcmdb/title/80568/Lacombe-Lucien/
  5. A note that the TCM lineup on February 14th has recently been changed. (The changes are reflected in the monthly schedule but not yet shown in the daily/weekly schedules.) Because of the 360 Degrees of Oscar game that TCM is playing, it is more difficult for them to swap out movies in February since each film must have an actor in common with the preceding film. Here is the primetime lineup (ET) on the 14th before the change (showing the film number and actor in common with the preceding film): 8:00p The Firm (1993) (157 Gene Hackman) (A TCM premiere) 10:45p A Few Good Men (1992) (158 Tom Cruise) 1:15a Easy Rider (1969) (159 Jack Nicholson) 3:00a Cool Hand Luke (1967) (160 Dennis Hopper) 5:15a Papillon (1973) (161 Anthony Zerbe) and the lineup after the change: 8:00p The Firm (1993) (157 Gene Hackman) 10:45p Brubaker (1980) (158 Wilford Brimley) 1:05a An American Dream (1966) (159 Murray Hamilton) 3:00a Cool Hand Luke (1967) (160 J.D. Cannon) 5:15a Papillon (1973) (161 Anthony Zerbe) As you can see, A Few Good Men (1992) was replaced with Brubaker (1980), and Easy Rider (1969) was replaced with An American Dream (1966). In terms of the Oscar game, TCM has swapped out Tom Cruise, Jack Nicholson, and Dennis Hopper for Wilford Brimley, Murray Hamilton, and J.D. Cannon. A rather disappointing change from the game perspective, I must say. 😉 (My thanks to MCOH for flagging the schedule changes.)
  6. I went ahead and finished it out. Go to my TCM Schedule Information page and click on the At-A-Glance schedule for February: http://escapepress.com/tcmsched/tcm_overview.html In my list I show the actor in common with the previous film. In TCM's Now Playing newsletter for January they listed a few of the films for February by showing the actor in common with the following film. Ends up being the same list of actors, just shifted by one position.
  7. The song playing during the closing credits is Fashion Show by composer Bernard Herrmann from the soundtrack for one of TCM's favorite films - North by Northwest (1959). https://www.shazam.com/track/10225452/fashion-show
  8. To reply to the question in the original post, I don't see The Red Lanterns (1963) listed in the database of TCM films that have been shown so far. Sounds like a good candidate for TCM Imports.
  9. Thanks mr6666 for posting the info on The St. Valentine's Day Massacre. Minor correction, the start time is actually 10:15 pm ET. There's also another missing premiere coming up on Thursday the 9th. Here's the list of premieres for the next few days: * Jan 8 - The St. Valentine's Day Massacre (1967) (10:15 pm ET 100 min.) (* not listed) Jan 9 - I Am Somebody (1970) (short) (10:00 pm ET 45 min. window) (visible on the schedule) * Jan 9 - Before Stonewall (1984) (doc.) (1:00 am ET 105 min.) (* not listed) After that, the next missing premiere is on the 15th. The good news is that there is a relatively long list of premieres in the January schedule. The bad news is that many of them are currently not showing up in the tcm.com listings.
  10. I know I’m getting sentimental, but the explanation of how Robert Osborne posthumously contributed to the documentary almost brought me to tears. A really fine and interesting program. Very nice for TCM to show it and discuss how it was made.
  11. Thought I should mention here that TCM switched the original primetime programming lineup on the 6th and the 23rd, so Body and Soul (1947) and others are now scheduled to be shown on the evening of Thursday, January 23rd. This evening is part of the "Overlooked African American Performances" theme, which is also the primetime theme for Monday, January 20 (MLK day).
  12. As much as I would like some merch, I’m not sure my friends would understand what I was trying to say. 😉 It’s surprising that these issues have persisted this long - haven’t there been online schedules for going on say 20+ years? Maybe when everyone gets back from holiday vacations…
  13. There is an ongoing issue with TCM premieres disappearing from the schedule. Escape from the Planet of the Apes will most certainly be shown this evening (you can verify by checking your cable guide and other online schedule sources). Visit the TCM Premieres topic for further discussion of the issue. https://forums.tcm.com/topic/48504-tcm-premieres/page/64/#comments
  14. I see that it's blacked out on WatchTCM as well, so it must be some glitch in TCM's source material for this showing.
  15.
