  1. Not being that familiar with her work in the early 1930s, I looked at her IMDB page. She was mostly not credited on screen for these efforts, but IMDB lists several roles of hers in 1932-3 such as "Blonde train passenger", etc. So it's plausible she was consistently blonde throughout that time-frame. https://www.imdb.com/name/nm0002104/
  2. Additionally, Adrienne Barbeau (Fiddler on the Roof, Grease), Bill Macy (Oh! Calcutta), and Conrad Bain (Candide) had Broadway musical credentials. And Bea Arthur was also in several other musicals (Fiddler among them) I enjoyed these (Norman Lear properties) as a kid when they first aired, but upon watching them today, they seem to be yelling at each other all the time. I never noticed it much at the time, for some reason. I also agree with those that say most of them don't age well, unless you were living at the time of their original airing, or have a good understanding of US history of the era. There are a lot of cultural and political references in these programs that probably sail past those born later. You rarely find these in other everlasting shows like I Love Lucy or The Andy Griffith Show
  3. According to findagrave.com, Barry Fitzgerald's mother passed away some 7 years before Going My Way was released. It's too bad, because it's a nice story. https://www.findagrave.com/memorial/119116359/fanny_sophia-shields
  4. This documentary is on tonight's TCM schedule
  5. I also have been getting the NoAuthz error for the past few weeks on Roku, but only for the live feeds. I can watch on-demand films with no problems.
  6. It's Tab Hunter night tonight. Nice photo of Tab and Rudolf Nureyev.
  7. TCM is spotlighting the incredibly handsome John Gavin tonight.

    Memorable Music!

    More 70s shtick. Pointer Sisters as the stepsisters, Tim Conway as an Elton John knockoff, and Harvey Korman as the fairy godmother.
  9. Otherwise, Milton Berle would have been arrested every time he did his show.
  10. Did anyone notice the lineup of Judy Garland films earlier that day?
  11. All meals are on your own. Breakfast is the easiest one, because you can get that out of the way before you start watching any films. One of the challenges is fitting in meal times, especially for lunch and dinner. Films usually start showing about 9 AM each day. There are multiple venues running in parallel (usually 3 TCL Multiplex auditoriums, TCL Chinese IMAX (Grauman's Chinese), Egyptian) more or less continuously throughout the day, with other venues sometimes being used (like Disney's El Capitan, or the Cinerama Dome). Adding in other events, like interviews at Club TCM or other spots in Hollywood, or screenings at the Roosevelt poolside, can make it difficult to see everything you want. With no defined lunch or dinner breaks, you basically have to make your own by deciding what to skip and when to eat. We generally eat one sit down meal per day, and snack for the others (grabbing a sandwich or something to go from a counter service restaurant). The full schedule is usually posted a couple weeks ahead of the festival, so it gives you plenty of time to plan what to see, and how to fit in meal times.
  12. Believe you can get what you're looking for with the e-mail version of the Now Playing newsletter. You have to sign up with your e-mail address. When you get it delivered to you, there will be a button that looks like this: When you click that, it will give you the alphabetized listing I think you want. Here's a snippet of what it looks like: It is a PDF file, so you can easily print it out if you wish.
  13. Often it comes down to rights issues. Rights are very complicated, but two variables are almost always the term (how long can someone show a property), and repetitions (how many times can they show it within their time window). On demand complicates it, especially if the contract is old and pre-dates the advent of on demand capabilities. I have no idea what the issues are in this particular case, but there's a couple of things it might be. To get the real answer, you'll need TCM's legal department, more than likely!
