  1. Hey, ITS a Monty Python reference in the subject line! Now all we need is Michael Palin to stagger into the thread, somehow. Or even the knight who hits people with a rubber chicken. I like this Challenge already!
  2. I'm actually quite sad to see Rose McGowan's stint ending as Essentials co-host. I thought she was quite eloquent in her discussions with Robert O. I know TCM has never brought any of the old hosts back for a repeat performance, but I do hope they make an exception for her. There were times when I had no interest in the movies being shown, and still tuned in to see what she had to say. And come on, anyone has to be better than the moment where Molly Haskel proclaimed that women didn't like the Marx Brothers! Oy vey, talk about your sweeping generalizations! Also, the McCain thing doesn't bother me (even in all my stanch anti-Palin glory) because 1. The election is over and he still lost and 2. Do personal politics really matter in the realm of classic films? Nope.
  3. Chip, here's an [interview|http://www.terrortrap.com/interviews/curtisharrington/02/index.shtml] with Curtis Harrington, the director of WTMWH. TT: You didn't use real rabbits in the scene in which Helen goes off the deep end...did you? CH: They WERE real rabbits. They were rabbits who would have been butchered anyway. For food. We did it all through the ASPCA. TT: And that was all monitored by the ASPCA? CH: Yes, it certainly was. We couldn't have done it otherwise. So, um. WAHHHHH. Those poor fluffy things. Amy Sedaris would rolling in her grave (if she were dead).
  4. I'm only halfway through the April listings and oh my God, TCM is showing Best in Show. I f-love that movie so much. The other night I finished watching "For Your Considersation" and thought, "You know in the future, I hope TCM acquires the rights to all the Christopher Guest movies." I've seen it so many times, but I love that movie so much. And they're showing The Bed-Sitting Room too! I've wanted to see that one for ages. Also, I own What's The Matter With Helen?, and I totally enjoyed it until I read an interview with the director and found out that the rabbits at the end? Were REAL. I haven't been able to watch it since finding that information out. This may be the greatest entry I have ever seen on a TCM Schedule: Perversion For Profit (1965) - A floodtide of filth engulfs the country in the form of newsstand obscenity -- and this anti-porn documentary. I am so excited for April to roll around. I haven't been this excited over a schedule in ages!
  5. But when our host keeps calling long dead and rumored gay actor Randolph Scott "Randy," the tone is set. But isn't that his nickname? Like, what do you want Robert to call him? "Joe"? "That guy with the cowboy hat"? "Spongebob Squarepants"? Also, if you're implying that Lifetime is a gay network, you're sorely mistaken and clearly, you haven't been paying attention to their five star movie lineups. That's the network for unwed mothers, abused wives who need to get out of their horrible marriages, stalkers with restraining orders and teenagers with eating disorders.
  6. Yay! I'm definitely in. But I think you knew that already. And please don't put any cats outside, no matter how badly you want to participate in the challenge. It's super cold outside and really, who wants to wake up to the sight of a frozen cat-sicle?
  7. I don't post much around here, but I LOVE making lists. 1. Easy Living ('37) - I have never laughed so hard, as I did during the automat scene. 2. The Notorious Landlady ('62) - I had such high expectations for this one, and it didn't disappoint. Probably my favorite of all the movies listed here, besides #1. 3. The File on Thelma Jordan (50) 4. Wild is the Wind (57) 5. The Stepford Wives (75) - Paula Prentiss turning into one of "them" is one of the most depressing scenes I've ever seen in a film. Really. 6. A Hole in the Head (59) 7. The Eagle and the Hawk (33) - Please TCM show more pre-code Paramount-era Fredric March. PLEASE. 8. The Shuttered Room (67) - I can't say no to a movie where Gig Young starts karate-chopping the bad guys. That scene is completely made of win. 9. Voyage of the Damned (76) 10. Pardon My Past (45) Like Fedya, I would have voted for "Bridge to the Sun" if it were a premiere, as well as "The Bitter Tea of General Yen". And one more thing, "The Last Frontier" isn't a premiere (if I had enough slots, that would have been my #11), although the guide said it was. TCM had showed it years before in the early 2000's, listed under a different title: "Savage Wilderness" I think. I always thought that was a little strange.
  8. The only punk song they use is the one for the underground. I wouldn't even call that punk. I would call it, "Random Stock Punk Song" since the TCM Underground song is the same one that The Soup (on E!) uses for their opening and bumpers. They used to have a punkier song, where a guy would scream something about "The Underground" but replaced it a little after. I finally got the change to see this years TCM Remembers segment last night (I really haven't watched a lot of TCM this month), and thought it was rather lovely and well done?although I will say that last years made me cry for about a good five minutes after it was over. Maybe I'm a sucker for color, instead of the black and white/tinted look that this years has (I also though the song was a bit more poignant). But! I will never forget the outrage on these boards over the Remembers segment that centered around a woman in the motel room (from 2005?). Does anyone remember that kerfuffle? Out of all the actors/actresses and behind the scenes people who died, I'm still really sad over the passing of Nina Foch. For some reason, her death was being announced on my gossip lists a full two days before it hit the actual news. Of course, not many people even knew who she was, which just made it all the more depressing. She was a lovely actress, and I'm hoping this gets a fire under TCM's rear end to show some of her 40's work at Columbia.
  9. YAY CHRIS! I'm thrilled that you won! It's about time you get to host a challenge. I think January would be a great time for the next one. I've got a ton of stuff to do these next few months and it would give me a chance to recharge my batteries and come up with some fresh ideas. Again, filmlover--kudos to hosting a great challenge and congrats to everyone who entered a schedule. This was a great challenge and I'm totally looking forward to the next one. ~PS: Thank you to Chris and Fedya for the votes and to my PM voter as well. It means a lot!
  10. I too miss the music videos. I think the last one was for December, and had Gary Cooper as SotM. I've always wondered if all the complaints about the really punky one for September 2006 (William Holden as SotM, the day of shorts and the tattooed girl looking through a telescope) is what put the lid on these promos. I remember the board going crazy with protests when that one came out. It's too bad, I always looked forward to them. And I still miss the old, "Sunny Side of the Street" morning opening. It was so perfect. I recently watched a disc with that old intro and it was like seeing an old friend again. I do like the new graphics they're using for upcoming films. I like that a lot, as well as the new openings for "Word of Mouth." It also cracks me up that they're using the same generic guitar music for "TCM Underground" as "The Soup" (on E!) does. It makes it (for me at least), less edgy and more silly. Really, really sick of the TCM Essentials promos. I loved them at first, but please stop cramming them down my throat. I'm wondering how ratings are for that, since I don't think I've ever seen a program on TCM so heavily advertised as this season of The Essentials. I've even been getting emails from TCM's publicity person, in hopes that I would watch the new lineup.
  11. Also, I wanted to thank everyone who commented on my schedule. I really don't post much on these boards anymore and I check them rather sporadically. But I did want to thank *ydobon* (my head blows up every time I try to type that without looking), *movieman1957*, *filmlover* (I'm glad you like Aline as SotM--I try to pick people who are a bit more "out there", I guess), *Kyle* (so I'm guessing that you didn't care for Betsy Palmer either? I feel less alone in this opinion now!), *MattHelm*, and *pancakes_barbara* for their kind words and feedback. I've always felt that the programming challenge threads are the most supportive ones on the board and I'm glad to see they're continuing in that tradition (although really, we don't need to start holding hands and singing Kumbaya.) Pancakes_barbara (can I tell you how much I LOVE your username? I have no idea what it's from, but it's fun!), I don't update "The Roadshow Version" anymore (lots of reasons, too neurotic to get into here), but I do have a [personal journal/blog|http://argybargy.livejournal.com/] in which I talk about movies as well as other stuff. Thanks a lot for the compliment though. It means a lot. And finally, I just want to say kudos to filmlover for holding and moderating a terrific challenge. I had a lot of fun with this schedule as well as reading everyone else's. I can't wait to see who wins this one--although I'm getting confused who and who not to vote for. Help a girl out?
  12. I've been holding off posting my feedback on everyone's schedules so I could just do it all at once. And I know how much everyone was just waiting to hear from me (eyeroll), so...here I go: (In order of how they were posted) *movieman1957* - I know I say this every time, but I love your schedules. And I love your themes as well: Just Deserts (ha ha ha) and El Sid are really clever puns. I like the birthday tributes scattered throughout (Marlon Brando, David Niven and Jean Harlow--who I really wish TCM would show more of lately). Noir night is good as well. *Kubrickbuff* - Right off the bat, I love the Preston Sturges salute as well as the Truffaut mini-marathon later that night. I also enjoy your Hollywood day--all the director documentaries and the Hollywood themed line up that evening. And I enjoy the movies you chose for Claudette's SotM lineup. Great job. *ChipHeartsMovies* - as always, another fantastic schedule. I'm totally for the lineup of Donen musicals and for the late in his career Minnelli. I'm also really excited to see "The Mixed up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler" since that's one I've always wanted to see. And I have to say that the theme, "You Ungrateful Brat!" made me laugh. *pancakes_barbara* - what an interesting and eclectic schedule you came up with. I don't think I've ever commented on your schedules before (I skipped the last challenge), but I really enjoyed reading it. What really caught my eye was the WAMPAS Baby Stars lineup! Interesting. I also like that you did a Priscilla Lane b-day tribute without "Arsenic and Old Lace" (love the film, but I always like a star's lesser known films on their b-day!) Oh! And the "Scored by Frank Zappa" Underground theme is awesome. *ydobon* - I too would like to see the 1930's version of "Good News" (frankly, I didn't even know one existed!). I love the idea of Ann Sothern as SotM. Her films always put me in a good mood. I also laughed at the theme of "Tougher Challenges Than Ours", the Rabbit films and the Bumbling Thieves lineup (I love "A Fish Called Wanda" so any lineup with that works with me). But the funniest part is the Underground selections - following up "It Lives Again" with "So You Want to be a Babysitter" LOL. Great stuff! *ILoveRayMilland* - Yay for the Marge and Gower Champion theme, since I really loved them in "Showboat". And I give you major, major kudos for premiering "Has Anyone Seen My Gal?" That's a really fun movie and yes, I did spot James Dean in it. I also like your "First Four Movies that I Saw", "Lovely Ladies that are no Longer With Us" and "Lombard and the Mustaches" themes! Wonderful! It's a very creative and fun schedule. *sugarpuss* - WOW. What a talented, fun and spectacular girl this "Sugarpuss" is. The best schedule I have EVER SEEN in my entire life. Give her the Nobel Prize for fake TCM Schedules! I shall say no more, since I may ruin the moment if I do. I'm all verklempt. *MattHelm* - It's nice to see you jumping back into the challenge pool! Lots of interesting themes involving writers - I really liked the F. Scott Fitzgerald and Faulkners' themes (although I never would have guessed that was the link). A big YES to the Gershwin and Peter FInch b-day tributes, Mitchum as SotM, and Film Noir Friday. I love "Tension" and hey look, an Arthur Kennedy movie! Sold! *lzcutter* - Lots and lots of good stuff in your schedule: Character Actresses, Edna May Oliver as SotM, and a great line-up of Buddy movies. I'd also love to see Journalism as a Spotlight theme since I always enjoy films about newspapers, correspondents, etc. But I have to say, I really enjoyed seeing the Village People movie in your "What Were They Thinking?" line up. That's the only movie I've ever seen to have a catchy song about actual dairy milkshakes. *fedya* - Like ydobon, I have to pass on the K-Tel soundtrack, but what a great schedule you've come up with. Maybe it's the influence of the songs, but my favorite themes are "Mama Told Me Not to Come" (although I enjoy the Wilson Pickett version), "You've Dropped a Bomb on Me", "Don't Leave Me This Way" and "Borderline". It's a very cleverly put together schedule--and I always admire someone who goes the musical route! Also, I love Van Heflin as SotM. Everyone did a great job and I have to say, that if any of these schedules were actually turned into reality, I'd singlehandedly keep the dvd+r factories in business. And everyone picked great Star of the Month's. I'm really interested in seeing how the voting turns out. I think I know who I'm going to choose, but hey, there's still time for more schedules to slip in, right?
  13. Notes for my schedule: Star of the Month: Aline MacMahon Premieres: The House in the Square (1951) Time Bandits (1981) All The Way Home (1963) Murder Inc. (1961) So This is New York (1948) The War Between Men and Women (1972) A Letter to Three Wives (1949) Letter From an Unknown Woman (1948) TCM Original Production: From Television to Film: The Live Anthology Drama (2009) Marty (1953 - TV Version) Requiem for a Heavyweight (1956 - TV Version) Silent Sunday Night: Chicago (1927) TCM Import: Bellissima (1951) TCM Underground: Neighbors and Under the Rainbow (both 1981) I haven't been around much these past few months, but I usually do a quick check of the boards to see if a new Challenge has popped up. The allowance of 11 Premieres was irresistible and it allowed me to do a theme I've wanted to do for ages: TV Anthology dramas. I know a lot of people hate when TV shows pop up on TCM, but I'd love to see the early versions of "Marty" and "Requiem for a Heavyweight" as well as the Hollywood versions (I do love those compare and contrast themes!). I also added in a "TCM Original" Documentary focusing on anthology dramas, since many (if not most) of the shows starred actors from Classic Hollywood, and utilized up-and-coming directors such as John Frankenheimer and Sidney Lumet. For my Star of the Month, I chose the luminous Aline MacMahon. My choice was inspired by the current SOTM, Kay Francis. Over the past few months, I've turned to movies for a sense of comfort and escapism from my life and oddly enough, my favorite comfort movies are WB pre-codes. I can't get enough of them lately. And while I didn't use "Gold Diggers of 1933", I did choose other films in which Aline shined in, such as "One Way Passage" and "Heat Lightning", as well as two from her later career. I focused on Carl Reiner for one of my Primetime lineups since I absolutely fell in love with him during his run on "The Name's The Same". And speaking of old game shows, it also explains my inclusion of [Henry Morgan|http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Henry_Morgan_(comedian)], of radio fame (not to be confused with Harry Morgan, of Dragnet and MASH). Henry was my favorite panelist on 'I've Got a Secret'--he was grouchy, cantankerous and half the time, he looked like he just wanted a drink. That's my type of guy! Plus, he's funny--his radio show is hilarious. I've included all three movies he appeared in--I'd love to see "So This is New York", which was his only starring role. (Side note: If anyone can tell me where his cameo is in "That Kind of Woman"--which I didn't include--please, please tell me. I've slow-mo'ed and freeze framed that movie more than I care to admit). Henry's films lead into Friday's primetime James Thurber lineup (Morgan was friends with him, and appeared in the 1969 sitcom that was based on his writings). Like the pre-codes, I've become a huge fan of Thurber's writing, especially his whacked out fairy tales. It's also surprising to see that the film version of "The Secret Life of Walter Mitty" doesn't even resemble the short story that it's based on. I also included the premiere of 1972's, "The War Between Men and Women", which is not only based on various Thurber writings and illustrations, but on the man himself. For my Underground selections, I chose two films that have stuck with me for my entire life, "Neighbors" and "Under the Rainbow". These movies were on HBO all the time when I was a kid and I only vaguely remember them. "Neighbors" scared the hell out of me since there was a scene where John Belushi is screaming and covered in mud. I actually hid behind the couch whenever I saw the film was going to be on. And "Under the Rainbow" is one of those really bad comedies that no one else remembers but me (it has to do with drunk little people, Nazi's and The Wizard of Oz). Look, it was either these two movies or a double feature of "Halloween 3: Season of the Witch" and "Caveman". And that's about it. The End. Also, I should be back later tonight or tomorrow morning to comment on the plethora of schedules that have already been posted. Because I just know that everyone is dying to hear what I have to say.

  15. Oh my gosh, they're showing "The Oscar"! I've wanted to see this stinker ever since I read about it and watched the SCTV sketch that mocked it. I'm so excited to see this one. And speaking of bad movies, they're showing "The Apple" during TCM Underground as well. I've heard this one is beyond horrible. I can't wait! Glad they're reshowing "The Long Grey Line" and "Bedtime Story" once more, as I missed them when they were originally shown during last years Summer Under the Stars lineup. Also looking forward to the 30th, when they're showing a marathon of WB programmers. I'm really excited that Sophia Loren is Star of the Month, especially since they're showing so many unusual movies. I've only seen parts of "Boy on a Dolphin" in pan and scan, plus one of the rare chances to see Clifton Webb on TCM. The "Asians in the movies" lineup will be interesting, no doubt. I'm half-Asian myself and it always amuses/infuriates me to see a classic film where an American is made up to look Asian (which is about 95% of them!). I'm really hoping they get a good scholar to talk about the films with Robert Osborne as well.
