  1. In the CBS Sunday Morning video (thanks Peebs for posting), Ben M. in a voiceover refers to The Goodbye Girl as “a screen adaptation of a Neil Simon play.” This must be news to the Academy, since The Goodbye Girl was nominated for an Oscar for best original screenplay. I only noticed this because the TCM film festival interview with Richard Dreyfuss was the first I had heard of the details of the production of The Goodbye Girl, including the original title Bogart Slept Here, the De Niro firing, and the exit of Mike Nichols as director. So I found Ben’s comment confusing based on
  2. As a wrap-up comment on this topic, I would like to thank TCM for presenting the virtual film festival. They clearly put a great deal of effort into it, with all of the celebrity interviews, the special introductions, the introductions from the archives, the film premieres, the restored film premieres, and all of the supplementary extras. The amount of material presented was almost overwhelming if you wanted to try to catch it all, which is what I suppose a real film festival is like. Assuming in-person events go back to some kind of normal next year, we probably won’t see this kind of
  3. Thanks. For some reason it is not being shown for me any more in the main TCM section, but I was able to find it with the text search function.
  4. It appears that the "Méliès Mystery" section of the Film Festival with the documentary and associated shorts including A Trip to the Moon, etc. has already been removed from HBO Max. It's disappointing that all of the special content may not be available through the end of the weekend.
  5. Thanks for posting the comments about the Wuthering Heights intro - I went and watched it on WatchTCM based on your description. Also sorry that they didn't include the Alex Trebek wrap-up. I suspect it is not likely that we will ever get to see that portion again, but you never say never.
  6. Here's a nice article on the short let me come in (2021), which was assembled using clips from a recovered German silent film: https://filmschoolrejects.com/bill-morrison-let-me-come-in/ let me come in airs on TCM late tonight at 3:15 am eastern time.
  7. The Flicker Alley restoration is really first rate. Agree that it would be nice if TCM can give it the introduction it deserves. I see where this one is now available on WatchTCM for those who want to check it out.
  8. It appears that the film is not available on the WatchTCM West Coast live feed, so consistent with your comment the streaming rights must be locked down. That's unfortunate.
  9. In her introduction this morning, Alicia mentioned that this was the premiere showing on TCM of the restored version of Annie Get Your Gun (1950), and it looks fantastic. This likely corresponds to the recent release of the Warner Archive Collection blu-ray on April 20 of this year. If you missed it and are interested it might show up on WatchTCM later today.
  10. The West Side Story introduction with the cast reunion that kicked off the film festival is making news in other sources: USAToday - West Side Story recollections from Rita Moreno
  11. The similar topic posted by the moderator is closed for comments, so here's another thread we can add comments to. For my first contribution, I made a list of the titles that have been added to HBO Max for the festival, according to the web page: https://filmfestival.tcm.com/on-hbomax/ Here are the Festival titles on HBO Max in alphabetical order: All the President's Men (1976) America America (1963) Antwone Fisher (2002) Ball of Fire (1941) Best Years of Our Lives, The (1946) Black Legion (1937) Black Narcissus (1947) Bless Their Little Hearts (1983) Bringi
  12. This was mentioned previously in another thread, but for some reason TCM has been repeatedly stretching the Popeye cartoons on Saturday mornings as well. Yes, there are bigger problems in the world…
  13. In general HBO Max is not really trying to be "All things TCM all the time" - they are continuously revising their list of classic films in the TCM area. It is more just a sampling of classic films and not meant to be a TCM equivalent, and really just a subset of all the other content they are featuring. I suppose that's good for people that like the variety of the other content from HBO etc., but for those that want to replace TCM it is not really there. The next 4 days will be an interesting change, as there will be quite a bit of additional content on HBO Max for the TCM Film Fes
  14. The restored version of Wax Museum is currently showing on the West Coast live feed. Hopefully it will be added to the WatchTCM on-demand list once the live showing completes.
  15. Those twitter messages that TCM posted about the The Big City 1963 are a bit misleading, as the female star of the film is Madhabi Mukherjee, who is featured in the clip, and not Jaya Bachchan. Madhabi Mukherjee is also shown in the image from Charulata that Bogie56 posted above. (Jaya Bachchan does appear in The Big City, but does not have the lead role as is somewhat implied on twitter.) Not sure if anyone really cares about such things but I thought I would mention it.
