31 Days of Oscar 2019

Recommended Posts

Hi - Maybe I missed it on the 31 Days of Oscar list but I didn't see Gone With The Wind on the schedule.  I would have thought that since this is the 80th anniversary of the movie it would have been shown.  Maybe Turner has something special to honor the movie separately?  Would love to hear anyone else's thoughts. thx

As I said in the thread you created:

I think they're airing it in April as part of the 25th Anniversary of TCM. It was the very first movie Ted Turner broadcast when TCM started in April 1994.

I find myself a little disappointed by this slate.  Specifically, it would have been nice if they had mixed up some other Foreign Language Film nominees.  And there are no documentaries at all.

 

I guess there's no way to tell what short films they're going to air?  Surely they'll run a few as filler between the features.  That's another thing that would have been nice.  Give us a block of short films!

Not very many. Surprised there aren't more post-2000 premieres.

Another reason the program is somewhat disappointing this year.  A lot of retreads.

Most of the retreads are good films. And they were recognized by the Academy in some way, so they're worthy of being on the schedule. But yes, it would be nice to have a few more premieres.

Sure.  And of course there are only so many films in the pool to draw from.  But it would be nice to mix them up some more.  More Fox or Universal films.  More post-1980 films.  Different foreign language films.  Any documentaries--still can't believe they're off the schedule this year.  Animated shorts.  Live-action shorts.  People like me that have watched Turner Classic Movies for years, well, we've seen these films.

Sometimes I think they get too locked into specific themes, and those themes limit the films they show. The year they did an Oscar A to Z was the simplest and possibly the best 31 Days programming they did. They could choose any film that year, and just plug it into the schedule alphabetically.

The full schedule for this year's 31 Days of Oscar can be found here on TCM's website:

http://31days.tcm.com/

Clicking on the link takes you to a page where you can download a PDF file.

 

I really like this type of schedule, and TCM has my permission to do it all the time. The PDF is only 16 pages, and I might even consider printing it.

I watched THE FRENCH CONNECTION on Starz a few months ago. It was the first time I'd seen it, and I thought it was above average. Some of the scenes were too slow, and the plot felt dragged out in spots...but Hackman was brilliant as always. So I'm glad TCM aired it this week.

For day 2:  Favorite ‘60s Visual Effects Winner

FANTASTIC VOYAGE gets my vote.
 
Best Battle with the Bottle I'd say DAYS OF WINE AND ROSES, because a story of two drunks is more gripping than one, and there is a child involved.

Good point. Yes, I feel like DAYS OF WINE AND ROSES is more realistic. Both films are harrowing in their depiction of alcoholism on screen, and they cover new ground. But the second film doesn't feel as restricted by the production code as the first one does.

For day 3 :

Tiebreaker: Hepburn vs Streisand
I can see why this was a tied vote. Both ladies were wonderful in their winning roles. I give a slight edge to Katherine, however, just because I feel her role was a tad more difficult.
 
Best Way to Take on Political Corruption
I think this one really depends on whether or not you like Capra's style. I do, so I enjoyed this one more.
