Wow, Sugarpuss, a great schedule! I don't know how you were able to get it done so quickly since you only mentioned a few days ago you wanted to get aboard the new Challenge, but it's an incredible week.

 

Love the "Harassed by Harry Cohn" listing. Very clever.

 

I would never have thought of a tribute to Patrick McGoohan, because he is one of those stars one doesn't normally think of when it comes to movies. But it's a great idea. I would love to see "The Three Lives of Thomasina" again.

 

There is so much to your schedule, all of it praiseworthy, but the best is the RKO DVD boxset. So much detail of what shorts, etc., would be with each film's title. This is exactly the creativity I hoped to inspire by adding an imaginary boxset to the schedule.

 

Fabulous week and boxset, Sugarpuss.

What filmlover said, sugarpuss. Great schedule and very creative details and Easter eggs to the DVD box set. Your schedule is the equivalent of comfort food. And I'm glad someone else appreciates "Full of Life." You should read the book by the screenwriter/author, John Fante, if you haven't. Hilarious stuff, and still in print. Nice job!!!

I just wanted to show all of you the schedule that I had, I am still not going to be a part of the challenge because I would be breaking the rules of the challenge if I was. This is the schedule that I belived in and I just wanted to share it with all of you, it's not for the challenge, unless if TCM does look at the schedule and get ideas from it but that will never happen so for now this is just for all of you to look at and see what I had.

Universal does, indeed, own FIVE GRAVES TO CAIRO (one of my very favorite films, on which I collect anything and everything). A DVD has just been released, but in Spain, not France. It's obviously region 2, and quite expensive (about US$30), and I'm on the fence about buying it until I know for certain that the Spanish subtitles can be switched off).

Is the shchedule really that good? I think it is but I figured you would all think that's it's terrible which I can understand because I always get judged for my taste in films, mostly from the art house croud who are obssed with David Lynch and Orsen Wells. Really it is just movies that I love that are on my schedule, some of you may not think that it's creative but I just put movies that I like on the schedule instead of more interesting picks.

What I liked about your schedule was the obsessive passion you invested in its creation. You agonized like mad over what amounts to a hill of beans in this crazy world and that's what I liked about it. And what do you care what other people think of your taste in movies? You have a deep personal attachment to movies that is uniquely your own and you're not afraid to say so in a public forum. That tears it.

Nothing particularly insightful here. Just trying to mix up different movies under the themes. The Saturday morning is just that, movies of that kind shown every weekend.

 

"The Hepburn Box" would additionally include "A Woman Rebels" and "The Little Minister." I liked the idea that they were early in her career and were quite a variety of films.

 

I didn't look at anyone's schedule for fear I would feel compelled to rearrange or update things. Any duplication is strictly accidental.

movieman, another great schedule!

 

I know I would love to see I Accuse, The Garment Jungle, and many more.

 

That Pete Smith short, How to Hold Your Husband Back sounds hilarious.

 

I also enjoy the way you can choose a theme and mix in so many films one normally wouldn't think of on a triple bill: Born Free, Tarzan, and Animal Crackers. The same for the picks under When in Rome... Very clever.

 

Great idea for a boxset, too!

 

Wonderful work!

So far I have been able only to complete one day's worth of my schedule, therefore it will take me the full length of time allotted to us. It takes a lot of effort to do this and I just think that those who are complaining about what TCM has on this month are asking the impossible.

 

TCM has done a great job this month for their salute to the Oscars and the back log of my recorded DVD's to finish up is a testament to their effort. So my wish is that whoever wins this current challenge have us program for either next years 31 Days of Oscars or Summer Under the Stars. This way everyone will see how hard it is to do these two months of programming which TCM gets so much criticism.

 

I thank filmlover for all the time and effort that was required to put this challenge together and I know that this challenge will be the best one yet.

Hi, allie,

 

Thanks very much for the kind words. I wanted to make it one of the best. But it all comes down to the schedules, and we have had fantastic ones entered in the contest.

 

I am looking forward to your schedule!

 

(And anybody else who would like to enter, you still have until March 7th to do so. Instructions are in the very first post for this thread.)

First, thank you all very much for the kind words on my schedule. It was a great deal of fun. I like the part about finding movies you never knew existed and how it gives you more to look for on TCM.

 

Secondly, forgive my late comments on the schedules but everybody has done a great job. Many terrific themes and great selections in those themes. (It seems like "Theodora Goes Wild" is becoming a favorite.)

 

Lastly, this is a great contest. After the last one I was wondering if there would be enough people to participate. Well, we've already exceeded that and it looks like there are still more to enter.

 

Thanks to filmlover for handling this challenge. Having kept an eye on all of them it is a tough job, and like those before, have handled it very well.

 

I, too, encourage everyone who even thinks they'd like to try to join in. It's a good feeling when someone votes for your schedule, so give it a try. Hey, if I can do it....

 

Thanks

Chris

Does TCM have the rights to the Laurel and Hardy shorts produced by Hal Roach? I think I need one of them for one of my themes.

 

I seem to recall that TCM has the rights to the Hal Roach movies with Todd/Pitts or Todd/Kelly. (Those are Hal Roach movies, right? Or am I going crazy? This programming challenge is making my head spin at times....)

Fedya -

 

Yes. There are Laurel and Hardy shorts that are permissible to include in your Challenge. In April 2005, TCM had a festival titled "April Fools" featuring the work of the screen's most memorable comedies and comedians. Laurel and Hardy were a featured part of the festival. Check the page below for the "April Fools" synopsis and a list of many of the films included during that month.

 

http://www.tcm.com/thismonth/article/?cid=92500

 

Some of the Laurel And Hardy titles are for feature films but many are shorts. Having been previously shown on TCM, they are "fair game" to be included on your schedule.

 

One short title that has premiered in the months after April 2005 is Towed In A Hole. That also can be placed on your schedule.

 

Hopefully you can use one of these titles on your schedule. If you had a specific Laurel And Hardy/Hal Roach title in mind that hasn't already been shown on TCM, I don't know how that will fit in under the rules set forth by 'filmlover'. He'll have to adjudicate that for you.

 

Hope this stops your head from spinning for a while.

It helps and it doesn't.

 

I was going to plug in one of the shorts to finish up the day before my prime-time feature, because I thought I was half an hour short. But when I was plugging in the feature-length movies, it turned out I was about 90 minutes short!

 

Maybe I'll just program one day by playing "100 Years at the Movies" over and over. Everybody seems to want to get it on DVD; now's their chance. :P
