  1. I am excited!! I just found out about TCM coming to my hometown of Huntington earlier today from my mom's best friend. Since I am unable to go to the Classic Film Festival in LA, this is just as good of an opportunity to see Robert Osborne and Tippi Hedren in person. I can't wait til next week!! ~Donna _____________________________________________ *"You're the detective.

  2. Figures..I haven't been on the boards in a while and I'm perusing the TCM website and one of my favorite actors, Fredric March is the Star of the Month for next month. At least a bunch of us who have been asking for him to get his month in the sun, through request on the boards and putting him as SOTM in the TCM Challenges, have worked! He got his day last year for Summer Under the Stars which was great! Now I'll have to get the VHS setup for a couple of his films since my DVD recorder died. Big kudos to TCM for this one. ~Donna ___________________________________________ "You're the
  3. I do also recall The Twilight Zone episode that he was in, which you had mentioned, where he played a history teacher that had lived since the Greco-Roman times, but don't quote me on that one. He was supposed to marry the daughter of another professor, but one of his elderly, still living wives got in the way. Very talented actor. You will be missed. ~Donna ___________________________________________ "You're the detective.

  4. Agreed. Dean has a very big fan base in recent years due to his work on Quantum Leap, plus his recent work on the revamp of Battlestar Galactica. I became a fan of his through Quantum Leap and discovered more of his work that he did as a child star since then. At least he is still keeping busy with all of the projects and guest appearances and there are the rumors running rampant that a Quantum Leap movie is in the works. I had him as a Private Screenings candidate when I compiled my challenge two times ago since I felt they need to interview him with the extensive work he has done over the ye
  5. I think that the Academy made a major blunder on this one. Even though Farrah, Bea, Gene and even Pernell Roberts are more remembered for their work on television, they still made major motion pictures. It really irks me that Gene Barry got left out, even with him starring in the most famous version of *"War of the Worlds"* along with *"Thunder Road"* with Robert Mitchum, playing a federal regulator out to stop Mitch's moonshining business, and *"Soldier of Fortune"* with Clark Gable, Michael Rennie and Susan Hayward, playing Hayward's husband in China who is being held captive by the Communis
  6. Supposedly, if I remember right, CNN discussed "Song of the South" being released onto DVD sometime ago and the controversy surrounding it. I think they interviewed some African-American historians who mentioned that the film should come out onto DVD, but with an addendum or an intro prior to the movie discussing that this film was made during a different time period where views were much different than they are now. I could be wrong on this one, but I could have sworn I had seen this discussed. The films in question should be released onto DVD since there are many who enjoyed watching the
  7. Hello everyone! I've decided to participate in this go round of the challenge since I was pressed for time and unable to participate in the last one. From what I've read so far, the schedules that have been posted are great. Anyways, in regards to my schedule, here is some background about it. Each of the themes for the days either relate to song titles, something that is common within the theme of each of the films, pertains to something that the actors had also worked on for another medium as well as a common role that each of the actors played. For the Food Boot Camp Requirement of

  9. Gene Barry, Arnold Stang and possibly Brittany Murphy will get added to the tribute next year since they passed away during the month of December. As has been previously mentioned, TCM has made certain exceptions to their tribute promo, but not that many due to the importance of some of the individuals who did pass as well as their body of work. For example, one of the individuals who did pass away last December was Eartha Kitt. She passed away last year on Christmas and she was added to the tribute this year. In the case of MJ, if he had had a bigger body of work in film indispersed with
  10. This is great news about *Metropolis* coming to Blu-Ray next year! I have been holding off on buying the Kino DVD that came out in 2002, due to the fact of the film being found in Argentina, which is getting the premiere at the TCM festival in April. Was there any indication of the exact date that it is coming out or is that still being determined by Kino? ~Donna ___________________________________________ *"You're the detective.

  11. Hello all. Due to the fact that I have had a busy schedule this past week or so, I am going to have to pull out of this challenge. Good luck to everyone else who is participating. ~Donna ___________________________________________________ *"You're the detective.

  12. Hello all. Count me in on this challenge CineMaven. I have a few ideas in mind for the White House topic already. By the way, when is the deadline that the challenge needs to be done by? I did not see it in your original post. ~Donna ___________________________________________________ *"You're the detective.

  13. I am so happy that TCM gave Fred his due about a week ago. He was such a talented actor and anytime any of his films are on, I try to make an effort to see them. Granted I had work last week and was unable to see most of the lineup, however I was pleased to see some of his well known films on the schedule and some of his other lesser known films as well. In regards to *"The Best Years of Our Lives"* not being shown on the lineup last week, it may have to do with the fact that TCM has been showing it often in their lineup either as part of a WWII night or with one of the other cast members
  14. Hello everyone! I'm sorry for not being around here for the past few days and being able to post my schedule until the eleventh hour. I've been busy with work, spending time with family and other things. From what I've read so far, the schedules that have been posted are great. Anyways, in regards to my schedule, here is some background about it. Each of the themes for the days either relate to song titles, something that is common within the theme of each of the films or pertains to something that the actors had in common with one another.
