New TCM Morgan Freeman Commercial ???


Recommended Posts

Have you seen it?


It's about a young boy who climbs snowy trees and lays in them. They are filled with lanterns that illuninate the night sky, all with images of famous movie stars printed on them. I believe Morgan Freeman is the editing voice, but I can't be positive, I've only seen it once.


Have you seen it?


I am trying to find it online, so that I can link to it and show some other people because it was beautiful. Can you help?? At least let me know if you have seen it, and maybe when I can tune in to see it again.

It is not a new promo by TCM.


This is one of their traditional holiday promos that they run this time of year. I think the promo has been a staple at TCM going on four years now.


The poem is by Dylan Thomas, "Being but Men:


Being but men, we walked into the trees

Afraid, letting our syllables be soft

For fear of waking the rooks,

For fear of coming

Noiselessly into a world of wings and cries.


If we were children we might climb,

Catch the rooks sleeping, and break no twig,

And, afert the soft ascent,

Thrust out our heads above the branches

To wonder at the unfailing stars.


Out of confusion, as the way is,

And the wonder, that man knows,

Out of the chaos would come bliss.


That, then, is loveliness, we said,

Children in wonder watching the stars,

Is the aim and the end.


Being but men, we walked into the trees.


Since TCM has redone their media room, I don't know if the promo is available online.


Perhaps Kyle does?
