LAST DAY! ?THE TCM Programming Challenge: Take 5? with PRIZES


Recommended Posts

Hi, Fedya,

 

Sorry for not getting back to you yesterday but I had to go out of town for the day.

 

In answer to your question about Hal Roach, I know that TCM has a long-term agreement with them but I am not sure what is included. However, seeing they have run L&H, I say go ahead and include the one(s) you want without calling it a Premiere.

 

I hope this helps. I look forward to seeing what your schedule looks like.

It turns out that a short I was looking for aired during that comedy festival in April 2005, so it falls under the "previously shown" rule.

 

Now if I could just not try to put a 68-minute movie in a 60-minute time slot, or get cast members of a major movie like Sunset Blvd. wrong, I'd be in business....

Hello,

 

Radio-Keith-Orpheum (RKO), formed October of 1928 is my favorite studio. I like RKO because, even though the wall paint of executive offices never dried, the studio produced consistently interesting and entertaining movies. I scheduled an "all RKO" thing as a tribute to the upcoming TCM broadcast of several newly restored RKO classic films. My theory regarding RKO is...a handful of producers set the tone for the sorts of movies RKO produced from 1929 to 1959. So, my schedule puts the spotlight on five RKO producers and one studio-owner/producer.

 

Monday...David O. Selznick.

Tuesday...Merian C. Cooper and lot's of monkeys.

Wednesday...Kenneth Macgowan.

Thursday...Pandro S. Berman.

Friday...Sol Lesser, including the whole Bobby Breen RKO filmography. After watching a couple of "Breens"...I wished for young Bobby an early onset of puberty. Ah well, not to be. I've programmed the whole RKO "ball o' Breen"...you be the judge.

Saturday and for MY birthday (August 18th)...I give myself a big helping of Howard Hughes.

 

Some schedule notes:

If RKO is distribution company only...I list "PRODUCTION COMPANY-RKO".

 

Dates in parentheses are year movie distributed to theaters in United States...may not be year movie created.

 

Sunday. My "Essential" features star of the month Richard Dix and features script adapted by RKO guy, Howard Estabrook. So, I continued with "adapted by Mr. Estabrook" after my Essential movie.

 

Sunday. RKO formed at the beginning of the talking movie era. So, my Sunday Silent movie is a Robertson-Cole film. Robertson-Cole production company re-organized in 1922 as Film Booking Office Of America, Inc. (FBO). FBO was purchased by Radio Corporation Of America (RCA) in January 1928. RCA was one of the partners forming Radio-Keith-Orpheum (RKO) in October 1928. So, that is how my movie pick got into the silent slot.

 

Sunday. My TCM import choice is the result of an RKO distribution deal with Daiei Motion Picture of Japan. My schedule continues Monday morning with a couple of other RKO-foreign production company distribution deals.

 

Monday. RKO star Richard Dix.

 

Tuesday. My dvd box set and I pull out three movies for broadcast.

 

Wednesday. In 1936, a distribution deal was completed with Walt Disney productions. My schedule choices for Disney material do not violate the challenge rule regarding "Disney...live action" because RKO was very involved with the production, as well as distribution, of the Disney Company animated features. I chose several less well known Walt Disney full length features for my schedule. I think...we don't need to see no stinkin' "Snow White", or "Pinocchio", or "Fantasia". I've programmed items like "Fun and Fancy Free" and "Saludos Amigos". Features TCM has a chance of leasing for broadcast...except one, "Song Of The South". TCM programmer probably has to do a late night retrieve at the Disney film vault to get a hold of "Song Of The South".

 

Thursday. A distribution deal with British Associated Talking Pictures in the early 1930s. Co-production deal included RKO lend technical support to ATP, RKO form a Radio Pictures, Ltd. in England to distribute ATP productions in Britain. A few ATP productions imported to United States by Radio Picture, Ltd. I have programmed some Real Art and Associated Talking Pictures...some of my choices shown in the United States.

 

Friday. Some Val Lewton films as lead in to TCM Underground.

 

Saturday. Howard Hughes, a few cartoons, Essential and film noir choices.

 

That is all.

jarhfive,

 

An incredible RKO schedule! Wouldn't that be something to see, an entire week of RKO. I'd even enjoy one full month of TCM showing RKO from beginning to end.

 

Richard Dix as Star of the Month would be wonderful. It's amazing that for so many of us that we barely heard of him, but ever since TCM ran Richard Dix films during Summer Under the Stars,many of us have become major fans.

 

Hildegarde Withers as a theme and as a boxset is a great idea. I wasn't aware there were that many with the character. AND I love the featurettes you came up with, especially, "Hildegarde Withers...Teacher, Sleuth, or Serial Killer". Hysterical.

 

There are so many films I have not seen, or even heard of before now, in your schedule and that is my kind of week.

 

I know how hard it is to do a tribute to just one studio. You've done a great job. Congratulations!

Hello everyone. This is the first time I'm posting a schedule. Let me give some background about it. Each of the themes for the days either relate to song titles or something that is common within the theme of the film. For the Take 5 requirement, I used five films that dealt with the boxing ring as well as "The Champ" to take the idea into the early morning. There are some films however, which ran short, so certain films start earlier than the 6:00 am timeframe.

 

In regards to the Star of the Month, since Katharine Hepburn and John Wayne were chosen for May's Stars of the Month, I figured why not follow that trend. So I chose Fredric March and Ray Milland as the two Stars of the Month for August, since they are two of my favorite actors. Furthermore, March's 110th birthday is on August 31st, so I have devoted 24 hours towards this as well.

 

The DVD Box Sets were also to concide with March and Milland's Stars of the Month. I have a Universal box set of March's films from Paramount, while Milland's set is an assortment of films that he did at MGM, RKO as well as Paramount, since I believe TCM now has The Uninvited in their library.

 

On Monday morning, due to the publication of Tarzan, I have a four film tribute, which honors the occasion. I also have a birthday tribute to Charles Boyer as a part of the schedule on Tuesday as well.

 

The Essential for the week is Bringing Up Baby and the night is built around Katharine Hepburn as well.

 

The TCM Premieres include The Forbidden Street with Dana Andrews, Strangers in Love with Fredric March, 13 Rue Madeleine with James Cagney, Panic in the Year Zero! and "X" - The Man with the X-Ray Eyes with Ray Milland.

 

I hope that the schedule I have created is okay. This was a new venture for me to undertake and it makes me realize the job that the TCM Programmers have in trying to fit everything into one schedule.

 

~Donna :)

Hello,

 

I guess I dropped my "Essential" item in the wayback machine...I had the Essential encore a few days before the Essential premiere. I discombobulated and recombobulated my Saturday evening schedule...changed the Essential and moved around some movies. Does anyone care? Well, yes...I care, dammit.

 

Matt...

Quote:

"But really, you could have scheduled at least one RKO movie."

 

I am reading your quote as (possibly) saying my schedule is a little...uhm, "one note-Johnny"? I'm listening...tell me at what point my RKO thing crossed the line from a single-minded effort to a mad obsession?

Not to worry. I think someone in the last challenge programmed more for WB than you did for RKO. Aren't these schedules born of our obsession for movies? Why else would we go to the trouble (and fun) for something that is this much work? It's a great schedule.

 

On another note:

 

Congratulations to the all who did a schedule. It looks like Donna registered to do the schedule.

 

It's been great having this many schedules with more to come. I hope we can get this many people to vote now. Great work everyone.

Fredmill,

 

Great schedule. Lots of imagination and I am very impressed by your thoroughness in it.

 

With regards to the boxsets, Ray Milland makes a great Signature Collection. As far as The Univited, a Paramount film, it would not be part of the TCM library, as that consists of WB-pre1950, MGM-all, and RKO-all. Anything you can sub in that film's place?

 

The Universal set would be one I would buy. For the Challenge, though, only one boxset is entered per participant (and being Universal would not qualify under the TCM library requirement). But I still love it!

I am so very knocked out by all the schedules entered in the Challenge so far. They are terrific.

 

To everyone who has not yet entered, there are still 16 days left to create a schedule. Check the rules and requirements in the very first post of this thread. You have until midnight PT March 7th to enter.

filmlover,

 

I thought the rules were that if a movie has ever been shown on TCM, it's OK to use in a schedule?

 

I watched The Uninvited on TCM in the last few months... I think it played late last year.

 

Edited to add link to TCM article on The Uninvited :)

cinema, I was referring to the film being changed in the boxset. Yes, it is good to use in the schedule itself. For the boxset, the requirement says:

 

"Create an imaginary new DVD boxset containing 5 actual movies from the WB-pre 1950, MGM-all, and RKO-all library only (not the other five studios). All titles must be new to DVD."

 

The reason I put this in the criteria is that Warner Bros. owns all three, and, who knows, they may get ideas from the Challenge.

Hello all. Here is the amended change to the Friday night schedule that I had created. I could have sworn that somewhere on another thread, The Uninvited had gone into public domain and TCM got it. Oh well. Instead, the film that I substituted The Uninvited for was A Life of Her Own.

Hi, Donna,

 

If you click on the "edit" icon (it has the pencil on the word balloon), left of the "reply" icons, on the original post where you have the full schedule, you can make the edit right in your original schedule.

 

I recommend this because when I set up the links for voting, people will be reviewing all the individual schedules, and they will see your schedule in full the way it is meant to be seen.

 

Great schedule!

 

I am so amazed by the quality of all the entries. And I am very happy to say that this Challenge has more contestants than any Challenge ever before! (Anyone else who would like to join in can still do so.)

Rusty,

 

I think you crossed the line into mad obsession with the addition of On Dangerous Ground. Up till then I thought it was just a single-minded effort, but at that point it was clear that an intervention of loved ones will be needed. If you can admit that you can't stop watching RKO, that will be an important step to recovery.

 

Actually, you're not playing one note ... you're playing hundreds of notes with one instrument. Very impressive.

 

I'm glad to see your combobulations are now in order.
