THE TCM PROGRAMMING CHALLENGE #11 IS NOW OVER!


filmlover

Recommended Posts

Great schedule, movieman! I am glad you put Death of a Salesman in there. I was about to recommend it to the programmer because TCM should be able to get it since it is Columbia, and I haven't seen it in forever.

 

I like the title for the evening, "Noir Night." That would make a great regular feature for TCM.

 

And seeing Somewhere in Time in your time travel evening makes me smile. I love that movie.

 

Thanks for entering!!!!

Arg! I wanted to be first! Great schedule, Chris. Love the science theme ( *The Man in the White Suit* sounds intriguing!), and the inclusion of flying movies runs a close second to O'Brien films in getting my vote. *They Directed That*, Jack Lemmon, and Sidney Lumet would be fun too. And I'm hoping that TCM will take notice of *Six Day Bike Rider* ! Now back to my schedule.

 

And *Ordinary is ordinary...* ??? Not even close!

Huh????? Alright, who is this "person" writing? You're definitely not the man I once knew.

 

A new "nick" and everything changes. It used to be like pulling teeth to motivate you to finish one of these.

Hey there, 'movieman1957' -

 

Nicely done, my friend. You've done yourself proud once again. And your choices of theme titles is getting quite --punny-- funny too. "El Sid" made me smile - as did "Just Deserts"

 

But your Saturday Afternoon has put me back in the hole by a whole day. I just ripped up this -

 

_"...But What I Really Want To Do Is Direct"_

(Actors Pulling Director's Duties)

*Charlie Bubbles* - Albert Finney Dir

*The Buccaneer* - Anthony Quinn Dir

*The Happy Road* - Gene Kelly Dir

*A Man Alone* - Ray Milland Dir

*Dr. Faustus* - Richard Burton Dir

*The Alamo* - John Wayne Dir (which you used somewhere else!)

 

Congratulations on doing such a great job.

A really impressive schedule.

 

I love how you scheduled your Time Travel theme to end with the Private Screenings of Charleston Heston. It's like you're saying, "Ha-ha, I didn't do the obvious and program Planet of the Apes."

 

Overall, well done.

Here is my schedule. Sorry for all of the newer movies on there. I originally only intended for two newer movies to be shown and those were the TCM Undergrond suggestions but I couldn't find any older movies that fit with a lot of the themes that I wanted to do on IMDB. For instance, the time travel time slot. When I looked on IMDB, I couldn't find a lot of older movies that have to do with time travel so I just chose the ones that I saw on the list, I haven't even seen Twelve Monkeys before or Bill & Ted. I would be happy to make changes to the schedule if any of you can give me some suggestions for movies that fit the themes that I want to do, like the time travel theme for instance. I am not trying to turn TCM into a channel of contemorary films, where else can I see hard to find films starring Claudette Colbert or see my favorite Preston Sturges films. Anyway, here is the schedule as it is now so feel free to give me some suggestions for films so I can change it.

Good schedule.

 

One slight thing missing and you can just go into your old message and click on edit to add to it (you don't need to reprint it in a new post, just use the old message to make your change in)...on Monday morning, you've missed putting in a movie for 6AM.

*TCM PROGRAMMING CHALLENGE #11*

*PROGRAMMING NOTES*

 

I selected the week of April 12-19, 2009.

 

The week begins with a pair of films starring Freddie Bartholomew, the musical *Listen Darling* and the seagoing adventure *Captain's Courageous,* followed by the shipwreck adventure *Swiss Family Robinson.*

 

Several times during the week I've paired one of the greatest film roles by a classic star with a rarely seen film from later in the star's career. First up is Joan Fontaine, with her stellar turn in *Suspicion* followed by her rare 1966 Hammer film *The Witches.*

 

Today is Ann Miller's birthday, so tap-tap-tap your afternoon away with three of her best. Today is also the 100th Anniversary of the canonization of Joan of Arc, and we commemorate it with four very different film biographies, starring Jean Seberg, Ingrid Bergman, Sybil Thorndike, and Jeanne d'Alcy. The last two are shorts that usher in Silent Sunday Night (d'Alcy, the wife of director George Melies, was the first French film actress). The Silent Sunday feature continues along religious themes with Ramon Novarro's *Ben-Hur: A Tale of the Christ.*

 

For TCM International I've booked a double bill: Fassbinder's *Die Sehnsucht der Veronika Voss,* the story of a Third Reich era German film actress who is shunned after the war, falls into poverty, and who commits suicide. The movie is loosely based on the life and death of the real actress Sybille Schmitz, so I wrap up TCM International with her best-known film, the 1943 German version of *Titanic.*

 

A German actress who was on OUR side, Marlene Dietrich, stars in the next film *Destry Rides Again,* the first of three Westerns of the morning. Audrey Hepburn gets the Classic/Later focus, with *Breakfast at Tiffany's* followed by her final film, Spielberg's *Always.*

 

Howard Keel and director Stanley Donen share a birthday Monday, and we celebrate with the film they did together, *Seven Brides for Seven Brothers,* as well as some of the great musicals they did individually.

 

I've been researching silent films and the transition to sound lately, and I programmed the first talkies from several silent stars : Norma Shearer, Mary Pickford, Greta Garbo, Joan Crawford, and Ramon Novarro. After that come two early musicals, *The Broadway Melody* (the first musical) and *The Vagabond Lover,* made especially interesting by the presence of Marie Dressler.

 

Ingrid Bergman is best known for *Casablanca,* the next film, but continued starring in films into the 1970's. Virtually lost is the unjustly-forgotten children's movie *From the Mixed-Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler,* based on a charming book about children who run away from home and move into New York's Metropolitan Museum of Art. No one forgets her Oscar-winning turn in *Murder on the Orient Express,* up next. This look at Ingrid's later period ends with *A Matter of Time,* in which she co-starred with Liza Minnelli. This one is a little sad: the editing is choppy and the movie isn't very good, but it was the last film for Bergman, Charles Boyer, and director Vincente Minnelli, so it deserves to be seen.

 

After *A Matter of Time,* we move into other later Vincente Minnelli films, *On a Clear Day You Can See Forever* (with Streisand; actually a little similar to *A Matter of Time,* but more successful) and *The Sandpiper* (with Taylor and Burton), followed by one of Minnelli's all-time best, the wartime romance *The Clock* (with Judy Garland).

 

It's a family day for the rest of the day --- the day is filled with movies about orphans just desperate to find a home, plucky youngsters who will stop at nothing to find love. It kicks off with the largely unremembered *Sally in Our Alley,* about a little girl being raised by three men, followed by Margaret O'Brien in *Big City* (a film that appears to be a remake of *Sally in Our Alley*). Through the day, adorable moppets like Virginia Weidler, Sybil Jason, Edith Fellows, and Patty McCormack try to charm their way into the hearts of prospective parents. The Adoption Theme ends with the 1940 short *Women in Hiding,* about unwed mothers giving up their babies, and the Greer Garson drama *Blossoms in the Dust.*

 

Throughout the night it's Sibling Revelry, with pairs of films starring some of Hollywood's brother or sister stars: Joan Fontaine/Olivia de Havilland, Constance and Joan Bennett, and Peter and Jane Fonda.

 

The Jane Fonda film I selected, *They Shoot Horses, Don't They?*, is set in a depression era dance marathon, so I dug up a couple of movies from the 30's that have dance marathons in the plot: *Hard to Handle* (in which James Cagney bilks people with scam marathons) and Blind Date.

 

Because we had access to so many premieres, I was able to fit one of the movies that you generally only see on the Fox Movie Channel, the wonderful *Call Me Madam* with Ethel Merman. In my book, this is the best of the Fox musicals, and the Irving Berlin score (especially "You're Just in Love") is tops. If you don't have FMC, do yourself a favor and grab the DVD!

 

You love Kim Novak in *Bell, Book and Candle,* up next, but did you ever see her in 1978's *Just a Gigolo* ? That movie also stars David Bowie and Marlene Dietrich (in her last screen appearance). Afterward, revisit Marlene in *Shanghai Express,* one of her very best, followed by Maximilian Schell's terrific 1984 documentary *Marlene,* in which she is interviewed but would not allow herself to be filmed.

 

My Star of the Month is Lana Turner, and I picked an evening of four of her soapier roles from the late50's/early 60's. Lana also pops up in one of the shorts that fill out the night.

 

The next mini-theme is really fun: it's called You Ungrateful Brat! Each of the the next three films features (in small roles) the child of a legend who wrote a nasty tell-all book about their famous parent. You can glimpse Christina "Mommie Dearest" Crawford in the Elvis movie *Wild in the Country*; Bing's son Gary Crosby ("Going My Own Way") appears with Elvis in *Girl Happy*; and Bette Davis' daughter B.D. Hyman ("My Mother's Keeper") appears as next door neighbor Liza Bates in *What Ever Happened to Baby Jane?*

 

For the afternoon, I went with three RKO films based on literary classics, all enjoyable and almost never programmed: *Little Men* (with Kay Francis), the terrific *Becky Sharp* (with Miriam Hopkins), and *Anne of Green Gables* (with Anne Shirley). Anne Shirley is the name of the lead character in *Anne of Green Gables,* and the actress playing her (originally acting under the name Dawn O'Day) liked the name so much she adopted it for her career. It's also Anne Shirley's birthday today, so we're following it with three other Shirley films, including the very best one, *Stella Dallas.*

 

Time for Time Travel! I went for the smart apes and the stupid stooges. Who knew the Three Stooges were involved in time travel TWICE?

 

For TCM Underground we're dabbling in illicit substances tonight. Check out the bizarre acid drama *The Big Cube* with Lana Turner, followed by one of the strangest movies ever made, *The Mystery of the Leaping Fish.* This 1916 (!) silent film features Douglas Fairbanks, a superstar in his day, as a drug addicted detective named Coke Ennyday. The movie plays his drug addiction for laughs, and it genuinely is unsettling. Enjoy! Then get clean with Frank Sinatra in *The Man with the Golden Arm* and Susan Hayward in *I'll Cry Tomorrow.*

 

Next to get the career-span look is Fred MacMurray, with the marvelous *Hands Across the Table* (co-starring Carole Lombard) paired with the Disney goof *Charley and the Angel.*

 

It's happy birthday Hayley Mills, so your afternoon will involve twins who switch places, mischievous cats who solve crime, stern nuns, and finally troubled newlyweds.

 

We hit the home stretch with The Essentials: *Mrs. Miniver,* tagged by the sequel *The Miniver Story* and *The Best Years of Our Lives.*

 

And the week ends with *Los Angeles Plays Itself,* a 2003 documentary that is an in-depth and fascinating look at real-life locations of classic Hollywood films, taking you to the real stairs that Laurel and Hardy climbed with the piano in *The Music Box", to the observatory where Sal Mineo is killed in *Rebel without a Cause*, and more. Remember the interesting office building where Fred MacMurray and Edward G. Robinson work in *Double Indemnity*? That's the Bradbury Building --- a building which also starred in *Chinatown, Marlowe, D.O.A., Wolf,* and *Blade Runner!* This is a really beautiful movie, as much a love letter to L.A. as it is a documentary.

ChipHeartsMovies, another excellent schedule from you.

 

The Joan of Arc tribute is great, and something I would definitely watch.

 

I've heard of Veronika Voss but never seen it, so it would be another definite for me.

 

"First Talking Appearances by Silent Film Stars" is a brilliant idea, one that I hope TCM picks up on.

 

And so many other great choices throughout the week (picking Hayley Mills is a great way to spend a Saturday afternoon, which is probably when I saw most of her films when I was a kid).

 

Terrific job.

June 7th ? 13th, 2009

 

Sunday- So this is my schedule! Starting with *Vegas movies*, a *Jessica Tandy 100th birthday tribute* (I wish I could have made it all day, but she didn?t make enough films), and the *100th anniversary of Mary Pickford?s screen debut*. Why don?t I have a time listed for her first short? Here?s the deal- it?s been restored by the Museum of Modern Art, but they are notoriously stingy with their film holdings, and I don?t think it?s ever been publicly screened. Hopefully, for an important milestone like this, they would lease it to TCM. From innocent little Mary, we move to a ?Women In Prison? film with *Anna Magnani & Giulietta Masina* for TCM Imports.

 

Monday- An all day *Alexis Smith birthday tribute* followed by a night featuring my *Star Of The Month, Warren William*. Was anyone in the Pre-code era a slimier guy (on screen)? I don?t think so.

 

Tuesday- *Cole Porter* is probably my favorite classic songwriter, so programming his birthday tribute was a real treat. For the past few years TCM has spotlighted minorities in film during the month of June, and I chose a mostly silent minority- *aging actresses*. In my fantasy TCM world (don?t we all have one?), Charles Bush, who I seriously think should be the next Essentials co-host, would co-host the series. The highlight of this night is the premiere if *The Star* with Bette Davis.

 

Wednesday- Judy, Judy, Judy! A day filled with musical films leads into a night filled with films about musicians.

 

Thursday- From 1922 to 1934, the [WAMPAS Baby Stars campaign |http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/WAMPAS_Baby_Stars] served as an important tool to break actresses into the realm of stardom, and though many of them became huge stars, just as many were stuck in B westerns before giving up (and marrying producers ;) ), as is reflected in the varied programming on this day. Now would be a good time for me to thank filmlover for allowing us all those premieres (thanks, filmlover!). Time Travel night is pretty random, but notable for the premiere of the Roger Corman classic *The Undead*.

 

Friday- *Priscilla Lane?s birthday* facilitates the premiere of the hilarious *Fun On A Weekend*. Primetime highlights films with wild soda shop scenes/wild soda shop employees. The Underground dredges up some rarely seen films scored by *Frank Zappa* (every time I see the title *Run Home Slow*, it cracks me up).

 

Saturday- I wanted to program 24 films in 24 hours, but it didn?t work out, so you just get 6 in 6 hours. *Basil Rathbone?s birthday* tribute contains the premiere of the colorful *Frenchman?s Creek*, and The Essentials features *Separate Tables* (thanks to lzcutter and ydobon for help with this one) and other Hill-Hecht-Lancaster Productions.

Filmlover, thanks for the kind words. I missed a couple of Challenges due to a work conflict, I am happy to be back.

 

Isn't it interesting that the George Melies version of the story of Joan of Arc ( *Jeanne d'Arc* ) PRECEDED her being canonized? I guess I just always thought a Saint was a Saint. Of the four movies I picked, she was "Saint Joan" in the three later ones, but was "Jeanne d'Arc" in the first. That's right --- there were movie bios of her BEFORE she was a saint!

pancakes barbara, a superb schedule. "So this is...," Jessica Tandy's 100th birthday, Mary Pickford, the Warren William films (I've always liked him...gad, what does that make me if you think he was a sleaze?), the Wampas Baby Stars of 1929, and so much more. I especially like the way you tied in the "Old Grey Hare" cartoon into your time travel section.

 

Great job!

Things are really getting hot and heavy here tonight with all these schedules. (Unfortunately, it's the only "hot and heavy" I am indulging in this Saturday night.)

 

Keep the schedules coming, everybody. You have until September 30th to get your own in.

Well, as everyone else gets their schedules in, I've been inspired to create a new theme regarding my lateness.

 

Kubrickbuff, love Claudette Colbert as SOTM, Preston Sturges, and Francois Truffaut.

 

pancakes_barbara, I'm thrilled that we didn't use the same film in our time travel segment. Love the Follies, Cole Porter tribute, aging actresses, and baby stars of 1929.

 

And Chip, not much to say but WOW! I guess you've been saving up your ideas. First talkies by silent stars, Ann Miller, ungrateful brats, underground, and orphans. *Sally in Our Alley* ? You got me there. In my first challenge, I looked for a fourth film to go with *Big City* , *Three Men and a Baby* , and *The Three Godfathers* , but gave up the idea. And bonus points for including *Big City* , too!

Movieman -- could there be a better title than *Joe and Ethel Turp Call on the President?* And I love the David Niven films, he's a star we all often overlook.

 

Kubrickbuff -- a schedule packed with Preston Sturges AND Claudette Colbert would be a very TCM-packed week for me! (By the way, *Midnight* finally came out on DVD, but with zero extras --- inexpensive though).

 

Pancakes Barbara -- so many inspired choices! Jessica Tandy, Mary Pickford, Warren William, and especially the Wampas Baby Stars. (And *Terror of Tiny Town* -- I always want to pair that little gem with *Bugsy Malone.*

 

What fun!
