  1. I just came from TCM Film festival. The passes were sold-out so I bought individual tickets for each movie. In total I only spent $50 ($10 per movie). For me the real fun is meeting the fans. Often I will skip the films and just stand-around talking to people. The highlight was the Final Party celebrating 25 years of TCM..... free food, champagne, and a birthday cake. Plus tons of people I got to meet & greet Thank you Ted Turner, Robert Osborne, and the TCM family .
  2. Just wondering if anyone else has ever attended the "Cinecon" film festival in LA and what your impressions were? If you are a regular attendee I would like to correspond with you. I attended this your for the first time, myself. If you have not, and are thinking about it, I strongly recommend you do so. My summary below: I arrived on Thursday before the Labor Day weekend from Las Vegas and attended the opening night greeting/screening which was Buster Keaton's "Speedy". Cinecon is great if you love silent movies, as they show a good number and have live accompaniments. The festival lasts four days ending on the Monday Labor Day. I left Monday morning but squeezed in 3 days at the fest. Overall, I was so pleased with the content and type of pictures they showed. They were started by collectors in the San Fernando Valley back in 1965 who brought there own prints and reels to show each other, so it's a hardcore group of really die-hard old movie lovers and has expanded from there to the bigger venue and audience they now serve. The best part is they really don't show anything more recent than the 1940's, so if you are a lover of films circa 1920's - 1940's this is a great festival. They specialize in showing movies that are rare and can't be seen on TCM or bought on a DVD, etc. In 2016 (I did not attend that year) they showed "King of Jazz", a rare early two-strip Technicolor treat. This year they showed a couple great features I really enjoyed. One was "The Accusing Finger" from 1936 with Marsha Hunt. Universal struck a new 35mm print for them for free and they screened this. A real treat was 99 year-old Marsha Hunt was in the audience. They also screened a 1940 color nitrate print of "Untamed" with Ray Milland and Patricia Morrison. Patricia Morrison (She's 102!) attended and did and FAQ afterwards that was great. Other highlights for me were the screening of a Lon Chaney silent from 1914 that was recently restored and shown for the first time in 103 years (what a privilege!) and some Hal Roach shorts. Overall it was an amazing experience!! In summary the highlights that make this a unique festival: - An amazing and enthusiastic group of organizers and attendees -Mostly rare movies and prints not available -Nitrate prints at the Egyptian Theater (specially refurbished projection booth to do this) -Interviews with remaining living stars and folks associated with these pictures (they won't be with us much longer!) -Simultaneous old movie memorabilia show that is great! -Prints come from some great collections at the studio/MOMA/UCLA archives If you have attended please let me know your thoughts. If you haven't make an effort to go. It's a great festival and a privilige as well as lots of fun people!!!
  3. As a huge fan of the films featured on TCM, I am currently working on a 10-12 painting series (I've completed eight) with various takes on classic scenes and characters. I'd like to possibly show at the 2016 Film Festival or the Classic Cruise. Is there a contact at TCM who might be able to assist in pursuing this request?

  5. Help! I am creating a film festival called X MARKS THE SPOT and trying to include every "X" film I can find. The Amazing Mr. X. Comrade X Doctor X and The Return Of Doctor X Madame X (both the 1929 and 1937 versions) Man From Planet X Man With X Ray Eyes X The Unknown Good films, bad films, and the occasional bore. I am avoiding the modern X-Men films - TV has those frequently enough. Doing an IMDB search on "keyword = X" isn't fruitful because every doctor's show and TV episode that mentions "X-Ray" gets included, along with Gen-X, and eX-lover, etc. So, if you can think of other films with an "X" Name in the title, pile those on here. Your results will be used to inflict a great and powerful curs - er, film festival - onto my unwitting subjects. (Is there any chance one particular human won't be reading this? Nah... probably not... darn... well, it's too late. The suffering will occur, regardless of forewarning. bwa-ha-ha-ha)
