James FitzPatrick TravelTalks shorts


Recommended Posts

Although the schedule may get changed later, it looks like we get A Wee Bit O' Scotland a wee bit twice one day... in case you miss the first airing.

 

I dunno... you think too many of them on one night might give some viewers a tummy ache? Y'know... all of that candy Technicolor-ed scenery filling the hour? Like Halloween, too many sweets at once may not be a good idea.

When they did the Mack Sennett spotlight back in 2012, they aired a lot of short films (many of them three to five minutes in length). I didn't hear anyone complaining about that, and they were in black-and-white and rather grainy, with obvious jump cuts. 

 

I think viewers would love to see a collection of the Traveltalks shorts all at once, not just intermittently sprinkled across the TCM landscape.

You and I would enjoy them, but I am not sure about others. By the way, I added another "elephantine" post on the other thread here in "shorts".

Okay, thanks. I will check it out.

 

Well, I was just suggesting one evening. It doesn't seem like asking too much for TCM to turn over one evening and air a bunch of these wonderful Traveltalks shorts. It would be something different and fun!

The schedules are always goofy. Some days you only see the shorties listed under PST... or US and not Canada. Depends on the "working condition" of the site I guess.

Well, I usually am looking at the U.S. schedule MST...and the shorts never show up on the daily schedule. That's why I am always checking this thread and asking you for the latest info...but last night, I happened to switch over to the weekly schedule, quite by accident, and there they were, listed among the features.

I caught the one about Bavaria recently. I still don't understand why TCM can't air a whole hour block of these on a Saturday or Sunday afternoon. I think they'd go over well with viewers who may miss them sandwiched in between other films.

Sneaky so and so's... not listing them on the main schedule. I think the programmers are behind and simply finding stuff at the last minute to plug the program "holes".

That's a distinct possibility. At least they are still airing them, and it's not all wine commercials. :)

That was one of the ones his crew shot in 1938 but was "held over" in release so that something "exotic" would be available for 1941 moviegoers, stuck seeing mostly US-filmed material because of the war halting international travel. Of course, this is a locale not TOO far away.

 

I haven't bothered with the TCM schedule since the other forum was shut down. Trying to get my mo-jo back with other stuff in my life.

 

What I would like to do is upload some of my shortie "checklists"... at least for Paramount, Warner and MGM... once I figure out the system here.

Interesting...well, it certainly had an exotic feel to it, and I am sure 1941 audiences appreciated it. 

 

Looking forward to seeing your checklists when you are able to post them.

Another travelogue to Haiti worth seeing is FALLEN EMPIRE (Van Beuran-RKO "Vagabond Adventure", 1931), which is an extra on a DVD of vintage 1929-30 shorts THE FANTASTIC WORLD OF WILLIAM CAMERON MENZIES (Alpha). What is it doing on a set of musical shorts? Got me! Yet I am glad it was included... along with two other vintage shorties of the period. Shot in black and white, not Technicolor, but also Pre-Code... with "native" ladies fishing bare-breasted.

 

I will try to post all of my shorties "checklists" sometime during this year or next, since they can no longer be viewed on the other forum... the one that recently went kaput. I will start with Paramount (the most popular of the bunch), then Warner and MGM (including the Hal Roach material they distributed) since these are the two that TCM "sources" from. I guess RKO would have to be next, even though not much of theirs get aired. Then... Pathé Exchange (earlier Roach and Sennett... and that wonderful Pathé Review "magazine" series), Universal, Fox, Columbia and Educational Pictures to round out the sound era at least... and maybe some of the Little Companies that also made shorties. Already covered school-oriented companies like Encyclopaedia Britannica, Coronet and Centron on wikipedia.

 

It takes time though... I keep finding missing movie titles and making corrections. Also these threads may be loooooong.

Easier said than done.

 

I may just do a few each day, because I keep getting "error reports". :angry:

I actually suggested once to include Traveltalks in TCM's Summer Under the Stars program, but I think I like your suggestion more. There's absolutely no reason why they can't do something like that -- maybe once a month. It would certainly be a welcome change from the constant repetition of shorts we see now. For example, as fine a film as Kingdom of the Saguenay is, does it really need to be shown every single month? Once every year or so would be fine. There are a number of shorts that seem to be in heavy rotation like that. That's a shame, as there are hundreds of shorts that have been MIA that could be shown instead.

 

Several months ago, Yancey and I made a list of a half dozen or so Traveltalks we'd like to see, mainly because they haven't been shown in years. One of them, Land of the Quintuplets, actually aired soon afterward, and subsequently was repeated at least twice! Unfortunately, though Yancey did confirm the others were available to be aired, none of them ever have been to this day. Still keeping fingers crossed.

Where is the list? Is it on another thread, or was it something you two posted on another site?

Just for the heck of it, I went through my notes and made a checklist of JUST his Travel films (and added a few other MGM shorties, but not his British stuff or his features)...
