Looks like a two month gap is becoming the new normal rather than the three months we've all been accustomed to. I'm just now getting home and want to watch some the Ann Sheridan movies that are starting in less than two hours, so it might be a day or two before I can fully peruse, but I'm excited it's finally here.

My first impression without even checking out the links yet is I'm very excited about a Warren Beatty day, he being a particular favorite from my childhood. I'm eager to see what films have been selected. Also among the "moderns", Goldie Hawn, on whom I had a serious crush as a child. They were in several movies together. It will be interesting to see how many of those will be aired and on which star's day. Sammy Davis, Jr. might be interesting. I'm not terribly aware of anything he did outside of the Rat Pack films. 

Who were the two entrants the Backlot members got to vote on? One I think was SZ Sakall, but I don't know whom he was competing against. I'm also not remembering whom the two females were this year.

I seemed to say "whom" a lot in this post! Hope I was using it correctly.

All the links are working for me except for the first week and the whole month schedule ... so I can't see the first week. I'm sorta **** wanting to peruse these in chronological order, so this is a bit frustrating for me.

Okay, I'm going to stop posting for a while, before I turn this into a hot thread just by my posts alone.

The first whom seems correct.  The last incorrect.  The middle whom I am not sure of.  Anyway, the death of whom is almost universally acknowledged among linguists.  Go ahead an just use who.  No one'll bop you on the head.

Disappointed about Robert Vaughn not being honored for the fourth year in a row.  On the bright side, I'm glad to see Goldie Hawn, Ann Miller, William Powell, Steve McQueen, and Burt Lancaster honored.

"Too Darn Hot" will be perfect for this year's SUTS because it'll be too hot outside by then...if you know what I mean.

For future reference here, sewhite:

The yellow colored "on whom" in your first paragraph and the word "Who" which started your second paragraph were both correctly used.  However, the two red colored words "whom" in your second paragraph were incorrectly used in both cases, and you should have used the word "who" in those two instances for it to be grammatically correct.

(...hey, you pretty much asked here, now didn't ya?!) ;)

LOL

I asked! And you could further elucidate me on why one is correct and the others not, if that's drifting this thread too far off topic.

Well, it would more than likely be drifting this thread a bit too far off topic, however if you'd really care to know about this sort of thing, I suppose supplying you the following link wouldn't be all that distracting from the subject at hand...

OH yeah! Ann's number here is always so transfixing, isn't it?!

One of my favorites in any musical ever made.

(...FWIW, she lived a large portion of her later life right here in picturesque Sedona...but no, she died before I moved here, and so I never met her)

Mostly the usual suspects whose films are shown throughout the year. Happy to see Sylvia Sidney included. Diana Dors might be an interesting day also.

At least no Katharine Hepburn for a change.

Great format this month, love many of the actors.  http://moviecollectoroh.com/pics_to_hotlink_on_TCM/forum-grin-twinkle.gif

MCOH pick: You And Me (1938).  That is listed under the Sylvia Sidney day, though it would fit just as well under the George Raft day, I don't care - as long as they actually play the damn thing...

Most impressive part for me is the immersive visuals using lines, lighting, shadow, prop design, and even Raft's angular facial profile while wearing a hat, as he walks down a carefully backlit fire escape at night.  With Fritz Lang behind the wheel, how can you go wrong.  The rest is just icing on the cake.  Music by Kurt Weil, with a weird jail number.

Includes a generous cast of sidekicks and character actors as Raft's gang, and Sidney as his interest.  This is a unique, somewhat different take on the "bad guy going straight" story.  If you are only interested in the usual cadence stuff of this genre, then don't bother, it wasn't meant for you.  If you like offbeat and unusual, then go ahead and watch.

I mentioned this one on this forum years ago, interesting to see it scheduled.  http://moviecollectoroh.com/pics_to_hotlink_on_TCM/forum-jaw-dropping.gif

I also know that you could use he or she in the sentence, it should be “who.”  If him or her is grammatically correct, It should be “whom.”

I love Bette Davis and all, but I feel like we’ve had a glut of marathons of her films recently. First her SOTM tribute in November, then I think just last week, there was a daytime tribute to her films; and I’m fairly certain she was featured during the day in either March or April. 

At this point, I only want to see “Beyond the Forest.” Everything else I own or have already recorded!

The other backlot winner was Claudette Colbert. She was up against Carole Lombard.

The rule that I learned was to mentally replace: 'whom' with: 'him' or 'them' to see if it is correct. If you can recast the sentence so that: 'he' is right then the proper word is: 'who'.

You two clearly had better English teachers than I did!

I've actually wanted to see it too.  In other news, both Burt Lancaster and Alain Delon appear, but on neither day do we get to see The Leopard.  For the latter, we get Rocco and His Brothers, Purple Noon, Le Samurai and L'Eclisse.  But not The Red Ciircle.  Goldie Hawn and Warren Beatty make up the post 1966 stars.  I think Steambout round the Bend and Khartoum are on movies I'd like to see.

I believe it is a significant difference that I had to study it explicitly rather than assuming that I would learn through osmosis. My teachers had many shortcuts and mnemonics to aid in remembering some of the stranger details.
