HIGH, WIDE AND HANDSOME will be a TCM premiere, I believe. Jerome Kern/Oscar Hammerstein score includes 'The Folks Who Live on the Hill', a hit for Bing Crosby and Peggy Lee.

Let's hope it remains on the schedule.

I try to remain reserved about many of the odd changes and choices I see happening at TCM lately. I know my tastes are not the standard and that competing for viewers is a big responsibility. I only want to suggest, now, that fairly obvious efforts to move TCM programming into 'now' (as opposed to 'classic Hollywood') would be significantly more interesting and compelling if they would get some of these people into the studio to discuss their work, their views, their recollections.

As long as Rita Moreno (or Sidney Poitier for that matter) is still available - it would be better and more compelling to hear them than a host or academic guest lay out 'their truth' about these careers. (... fwiw, Jane Powell is still with us, as is Joanne Woodward, both of whom might have contributed well to recent SOTM programming - as Stephanie Powers did in 2018.)

That's all. Thanks for your time.

Jane Powell has guest hosted on TCM before. 

Rita Moreno would be a good one to appear at a future TCM film festival.

I'd love to see TCM do more interviews (like the old "Private Screenings") with people who are still available.  I know Ben Mankiewicz interviewed Faye Dunaway and Michael Douglas but I'd love to see more.  Gene Hackman, Dustin Hoffman, Warren Beatty, maybe Hayley Mills?

I'd very much enjoy seeing interviews with the people you mentioned. I'd especially like to watch Hayley Mills talk about working with her father.

Yes, me too!  It seems as though TCM has gotten away from doing interviews. Although, I did see a snippet of a Ben M. interview Ted Turner recently.  I loved the old "Private Screenings."  Maybe they've asked some of these people and have been turned down.

Unless they think viewers are no longer interested in this sort of programming...which isn't true.
