I am so sorry, Chris. I can't think of anything more tragic than a child taking his or her own life. I really feel so terrible about this.

 

Please do not worry about the thread. It will be here when you are ready to resume it, but take all the time you need for that family and for yourself.

 

Take care, Chris.

If it's any consolation, I have a family member who also has experienced the loss of life to do a possible suicide.

 

They have a beautiful family as well and the husband is even the sheriff of the local police department. There was no warning of this coming and they found the son in the barn out back. It was a very trying moment and my grandmother was devastated as she was very close to her cousin whom this happened to.

 

My prayers are there for you through this. Even though you are friends with the family, the become family after so many years of being in touch.

Chris -

 

Such a sad tragedy. I can only imagine how such an incident affects a devoted father like yourself. Have all the time you want. No one here will mind one bit.

 

My sympathies to you, your family and your friends' family.

Thank you all so much. I have a 21 year old and an 18 year old. The first thought that goes through my mind is "Am I missing signals?" "Are we talking enough?" "Do they they know how much I love them?" "Is that enough?" Sometimes I guess you can't know.

 

I'll check in and through the week.

 

God bless you all.

A short reminder that if anyone is still working on a schedule I have had to extend the end date to at least Friday night. I still plan on getting a voting thread started on Saturday morning.

 

Great schedules so far. I hope there are more to come.

 

Thanks to all.

Notes on my schedule:

 

This on was a lot of fun.

 

Memory and Nostalgia looks at the way we like to remember our past as well as the more truthful way we portrayed similar events. For example, My Man Godfrey is a humorous look at the Great Depression while Wild Boys is a gritter, closer to the truth portrayal of life during the Great Depression.

 

I especially enjoyed throwing a spotlight on Allan Dwan and Doug Fairbanks, Sr. Silent Sundays looks at two of Doug Fairbanks best swashbucklers. I don?t think there is anyone that loved making movies as much as Doug, Sr.

 

TCM Imports highlights Good Morning, Babylon which tells the story of two brothers from Italy who help construct the giant sets for Intolerance. Makes a great grouping with Silent Sundays.

 

The all day Halloween line-up basically speaks for itself.

 

The Day of the Dead includes five films that people come to the boards to ask what is that film title.

 

The Speed of Sound is Scott Eyman?s great book on the transition from silents to talkies. Tuesday evening?s line-up sets up the Thursday evening line-up. In the book Eyman talks about the debt owed to Kevin Brownlow for all the remarkable people he interviewed from that era. I thought he and Brownlow would have a great conversation. Their interview is followed by a two hour documentary that woul be produced by TCM that highlights that era.

 

The Cedric Gibbons Art Department looks at a group of films that all bear Gibbons name as Art Director but the men who actually did the work are the unsung heroes of the department. These films highlight various genres and hopefully give an idea of how prolific they really were.

 

Instead of a Star of the Month, we have Raoul Walsh, Director of the Month. He got his start as an actor in silent films and quickly moved behind the camera to become of the great unsung heroes of American film. While Ford, Hawks, Hitchcock and the other so-called A list directors get the lion?s share of the glory, these films of Walsh?s hopefully reminds us of just how versatile and talented he truly was.

 

The Star Machine gives us a chance to look at how stars were shaped in the studio era. Ann Sheridan provides a look at the way Warners went about shaping its talent. Lana Turner had a much more extravagant shaping at the more-monied MGM. Contrasting Lana?s star makings with the way Clark Gable was handled offers a glimpse into why MGM had more stars than there were in heaven. It would be great if film historian and author Jeanine Basinger (whose book provided the inspiration for this) could co-host the evening with Robert Osborne.

 

Chantown offers up a Saturday morning of sleuthing with everyone?s favorite San Francisco detective, Charlie Chan. The Mr. Moto began as a Charlie Chan mystery but Warner Oland died before production started so it was made as a Mr. Moto.

 

Saturday afternoon looks at the accomplishments of Allan Dwan, who like Walsh, got his start in the silent days and had a steady career through-out the studio era. His films are often bare boned stories told in a straight-forward manner but he is yet another unsung hero that doesn?t get the attention he should or deserves.

 

The Essentials kicks off an evening of Joel McCrea movies honoring his birthday. I took the liberty of including a TCM Original Documentary (that they should produce) on McCrea. He was an actor that could do drama, comedy, westerns and modern day. Very versatile and incredibly handsome. It would be great if TCM could throw the spotlight on him as they have done with their other star bios.

 

Lastly:

 

*Disclaimer* (channeling my best LBJ),

*I am in this challenge for the fun of doing a schedule and seeing if I am up to the task. Being a multi-winner in the past, I would like to recuse my schedule from the voting.*

NOTES ON A SCHEDULE

 

My schedule for Programming Challenge #12 takes a look at one of the most common topics in Hollywood movies: sex. There are lots of variations on a theme, so to say, and some of our themes are closer to romance than sex, but coming up with a bunch of themes was a lot of fun.

 

The first theme, on Sunday morning, comes from a line in the movie *The Bad and the Beautiful*. Dick Powell's character says he wrote a best seller about colonial that was liberally peppered with sex because colonial Virigina was, in fact, liberally peppered with sex. So, I show *The Bad and the Beautiful* followed by a pair of movies set in colonial Virginia that have love stories. There is, however, no sex in the Traveltalks short.

 

On Sunday afternoon, we get kinky. (I suppose it depends on what you think constitutes kinky.) *Under 18* has a swingers' party; Jean Harlow claims she likes getting slapped in *Red-Headed Woman* ; *ABBA: The Movie* has one of the couples asking their manager what the workd "kinky" means; in *Bunny Lake Is Missing* Noel Coward asks a policeman to whip him; and in *Monty Python and the Holy Grail* we have a bunch of nuns who want to be spanked.

 

Prime time in Sunday brings a really bad pun about "doggy style", with movies more or less pertaining to dogs, and the fact that dogs produce puppies. *101 Dalmatians* is the live-action version with Glenn Close as Cruella de Ville. The *Thin Man* movie is the one with Mrs. Asta in the credits. Silent Sunday Nights has a Rin-Tin-Tin movie in which he takes care of his puppies in one scene. For TCM Imports, the best I could come up with was *Mondo Cane* (A Dog's World). We'll it's got quite a bit of flesh. I suppose that qualifies as sexual. Needless to say, I included a Dogville short as well. The last feature of the night, *One, Two, Three*, has no dogs, but a hilarious joke about puppies. Finally, I've included a Cartoon Alley consisting of three MGM one-reelers from the 1930s.

 

On Monday morning, we look at the fact that when Hollywood showed pregnant women, they didn't look at all pregnant. No woman ever seemed to gain any weight during pregnancy.

 

Monday afternoon contains four movies in which Joan Crawfod catches her screen partners cheating on her, either by seeing them or, in the case of *Sudden Fear*, catching them on her dictaphone.

 

On Monday night, Robert Osborne sits down with 1950s sex symbol Mamie Van Doren for a Private Screenings interview, followed by a night of Van Doren's movies. The premiere, the short "Hawaiian Nights", has Mamie Van Doren in 3D. Yowza!

 

Tuesday morning brings TCM in the "missionary position" -- with three films about missionaries (well, two about missionaries and one about evangelists) who fall in love with somebody other than God.

 

From there, TCM goes to love amongst pilots and stewardesses with four movies and a short. (Actually, in *Julie*, Doris Day plays a stewardess stalked by her husband, but it's close enough to the theme, and there are important sequences on the plane).

 

On Tuesday night, we get a salute to the "PHG". If you don't know what that is, William Holden explains the concept to Audrey Hepburn in the night's first movie, *Paris -- When It Sizzles*. "PHG" stands for the "prostitute with a heart of gold", and TCM shows four more movie with PHGs. Both IMDb and TCMDb list *The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas* as having been produced by RKO pictures (at Universal Studios, if memory serves). Technically, that gets it around the premiere, but I didn't use up all eight premieres anyhow.

 

On Wednesday morning, TCM engages in some French kissing with three movies involving amorous French actors, and one involving a kiss that's in a double exposure with the Freudian imagery of a hallway with doors opening up. As a bonus, in *Gigi* we get Leslie Caron fondling Louis Jourdan's... cigars.

 

On Wednesday afternoon, we have four different actors playing Tarzan, in those skimpy outfits. (Five if you count Mel Blanc in the Looney Tunes short.) This is followed by Schnarzan, as played by Jimmy Durante in the movie *Hollywood Party*. What does Jimmy Durante have to sex? Well, there is such a thing as a nose fetish, as frightening as it sounds. (Google it.) With that, I decided to make "The Schnoz" my Star of the Month. As they say in *Hollywood Party*, "Don't miss this if you can."

 

On Thursday morning, we have a bunch of movies whose titles make them sound like they could be porno flicks, but really aren't.

 

This leads into James Cagney as a "Bottom" -- Bottom the Weaver, in *A Midsummer Night's Dream*. He also was a "Top", when he made it to the top of the world at the end of *White Heat*.

 

On Thursday in prime time, we have movies involving people who might have been rumored to have gotten their parts because of who they were sleeping with. Norma Shearer was, of course, married to MGM producer Irving Thalberg. Jennifer Jones married David O. Selznick, although to be honest it was several years after *Since You Went Away* was made. (*Duel in the Sun* might have been more appropriate, but didn't time out properly.) Orson Welles was known for going ridiculously over budget, and if it weren't for the fact he was married to Rita Hayworth at the time, he might not have been tapped to direct *The Lady From Shanghai*. The last time TCM showed *Going Hollywood*, Robert Osborne said that Marion Davies was foisted upon the studio by her partner, William Randolph Hearst. I don't think Vicente Minnelli was brought in to direct *The Clock* to appease Judy Garland, but it's just an interesting coincidence that he wasn't the original director.

 

On Friday, we have mini-marathons about two related groups of people: the frigid, who don't want to be touched; and the barren, who can't reproduce (in *Village of the Damned*, it's the man, George Sanders, who's infertile).

 

This leads to Friday night's feature, on May-December relationships. Oh, the movies themselves may not be thought of as showing May-December relationships. But there was a pretty big age difference between the two people in each partnership: About 32 years between Gloria Swanson and William Holden; 30 years between Fred Astaire and Audrey Hepburn; and 31 between Joe E. Brown and Jack Lemmon (!). This brings up two movies in TCM Underground with even bigger age difference between the love objects. Groucho Marx as God, and Luna as God's mistress (well you know what I mean) have a 51 year age difference, as do Mae West and Timothy Dalton in *Sextette*. {Fedya shudders}

 

Finally, on Saturday, we start off with some gratuitous female busts. After all, we showed off a bunch of male flesh in the Tarzan movies. This is the chance to be an equal-opportunity exhibitionist.

 

It's followed by an afternoon of movies involving sexual hijinks on the job (or in the case of *Elevator to the Gallows*, a man boinking his boss' wife).

 

The last feature, on Saturday in prime time, invloves movies on the themes of rape, incest, and sexual assault, including the TCM Essential, *Cape Fear*.

fedya:

 

Talk about timing. I came out of one post looking for Lynn's comments and it took a minute to realize I was reading yours.

 

Thank you very much for submitting a schedule. Your choice of the theme for the week is likely to grab lots of attention.

 

Mamie Van Doren? What an interesting choice.

 

Everyone had interesting choices.

Lynn -- as a fan of Jeanine Basinger's books, I loved your Star Machine section. And I only hope TCM literally lifts your Halloween programming directly onto their schedule.

 

Fedya -- this is the funniest idea yet. Somebody has just one thing on their mind...hehe. But anything that gives me a night of Mamie van Doren is okay with me!

Wonderful schedule as always, Lynn. But somewhere in the rules there must be one stating that you can only recuse yourself from the voting once.

 

Love the Memory and Nostalgia day, definitely worth watching. Halloween looks like a treat. A month of Raoul Walsh would be great, too. Melodramatic Weepers and Melancholy Babies looks like fun as well. As I make my schedules I keep running into the name Alan Dwan, but know nothing about him, glad you've highlighted him.

 

Aren't the Silent Sunday Nights, TCM Imports, and Underground supposed to be freebies? You used three premieres on them! Have I been cheating? :-(

Patful,

 

I just read Chris' original post and you have not been cheating.

 

I used the template that I created for the last Challenge (where I had imports for Silent Sunday but no one caught the error).

 

Thanks for catching that. It doesn't change my selections but I will fix the template so that I don't make the same mistake twice.

 

Thanks for catching that!

OK, Fedya, you've already won in the category "Most Original", and that includes the previous eleven Challenges. Took a lot of creativity to fill a week surrounding one theme. Mamie van Doren, oh my! I've never seen one of her...uh...movies. Should be interesting, to say the least. :-) And thanks for a month of Jimmy Durante to tone it down a bit. Fun schedule!

Lynn:

 

I was going to PM you about the premieres but I had to be somewhere and I just ran out of time. My apologies. I did however expect that it might too late in the game that you would change them.

 

When I posted the comment about your schedule fedya's schedule was posted at the same time. It was so much the same that I thought I was back in your post.

Chris,

 

No problem. I re-ordered the premieres. A couple of things kept nagging at me and with further research I discovered I had two titles ( *Mr Moto* and *Robin Hood* ) that should have been labeled premieres. *Robin Hood* had been on the schedule last year during Family Acting Dynasties month but got pulled at the last minute.

 

The *Mr Moto* I chose was not the one that aired during *Asian Images* last summer.

 

Also, I labeled my Joel McCrea documentary as a premiere because that would be how it would be considered if TCM were to produce it.

 

So, no title changes, just some rearranging of the deck chairs so to speak.

Now that I have some time, I can really go through the schedules here:

 

*ChipHeartsMovies*, terrific schedule (as always, of course). You blended just the right amount of levity with honest-to-gosh ?TCM should show these? themes. And I see we both put Ann-Margret in our schedules. I particularly like the World?s Fair tributes.

 

*Norma_Desmond*, Wonderful. I always love watching Lon Chaney, so starting your schedule off with him is great. And I had to laugh when I saw the interview session between Joan Fontaine and Olivia de Havilland. That would be something to see. And I am glad I held off doing a Roger Corman birthday tribute.

 

*Patful*, another absolute winner of a schedule. Marjorie Main as Star of the Month? Oh, yeah! And I really would enjoy seeing Lynn interview Harper Lee. And a number of films that would be new to TCM in your schedule!

 

*Pancakes_Barbara*, great to see you back in the Challenge! Joel McCrea would be a popular choice for Star of the Month. The Bela Lugosi comedies would be delightful. I?d definitely like to see the Moss Hart tribute, and the ?Hail, Columbia? selection would be non-stop recording for my DVR. Superb schedule.

 

*lzcutter*...Lynn! What the heck are you doing here, you?re not due until 11:59 tonight! Well, be that as it may, I love the idea of ?The Way We Remember and Reality.? That theme could be used in so many different ways with so many genres (I?m surprised you didn?t put two Westerns in there). As to the Universal horrors, brilliant! It?s so obvious that it has slipped by so many of us who have done schedules in the past. As I continue looking at your schedule, you have so MANY wonderful themes. Lynn, you have to put yourself back in the competition voting!

 

*Fedya*, I don?t think I have ever seen a schedule that made me blush (and for a man to do that is quite something). LOL, somehow I just can?t see TCM having its announcer describe the upcoming movies by saying, ?TCM does it doggy style today.? A Mamie Van Doren night would be very interesting.

 

Great job, all!

I just want to say "wow" and thank everyone who's participating. There are so many great ideas and fun themes. Believe it or not, we pay attention and use all of the schedules as inspiration - when we're not just stealing the ideas outright. Anyway, congratulations to everyone, it's very impressive.
