SansFin's Programming Notes for Schedule for January 9th to January 15th, 2022

General Theme: A week of days.
All daytime themes are a nationally or internationally recognized 'Day.'

Star of the Month: Zasu Pitts, Thursday Evening
Spotlight: Movie Animals: Dogs, Cats, Snakes and Bats. This Week: Cats
Bob's Picks, Monday Evening
Universal B-Movies, Friday Evening
Bad Boy Bank Robbers, Saturday Evening


"Evening Theme: Apartment Life" is solely an excuse to schedule: The Irony of Fate, or Enjoy Your Bath! (1975).

"Peculiar People Day" was chosen over "Bittersweet Chocolate Day", "Houseplant Appreciation Day" and "National Cut Your Energy Costs Day" because I felt that most here will identify more with 'peculiar' people than with bad candy, fickle ferns or sitting in cold, dark rooms.

"Bob's Picks" was difficult because I did not track his choices. I did read that Gene Tierney was one of his favorite actresses and so I went with that and scheduled all things Gene.

"George Zucco's Birthday" I choose this week so as to pay tribute to an actor who brightened every movie.

"Spotlight: Dogs, Cats, Snakes and Bats. This Week: Cats" I wish to bring attention to excellent movies which have not appeared on TCM. Specifically: Rhubarb(1951), When the Cat Comes (1963) and The Black Cat (1968) but I love all the movies I scheduled under this theme.

"Star Of The Month: Zasu Pitts" I have never watched a Zasu Pitts movie which I did not like very much. She never seems to be given the respect and admiration which she deserves.

"Universal B's" Nothing says to me 'B-Movie' like a quick and dirty little horror film that is quite enjoyable.

"TCM Underground" I did wish to schedule: The VelociPastor (2018) for this in order to spread awareness of this quirky little gem but I hesitated because it is so modern.

"Holy Feast of Paul the Hermit" Monks and hermits may seem to be an odd choice as movie characters because they avoid confrontation and are often considered anti-social.   

"Bad Boy Bank Robbers" is excuse to showcase as an Essential Steve McQueen as the ultimate cool bad boy. 

I scheduled a Film-Noir on Sunday at 10:00 A.M. Sunday and a different one on 12:A.M. the following Sunday because that appears to be current method of TCM scheduling.

I have been an infrequent poster and have never done a schedule before, but I took up Lydecker’s challenge this time.  The process was far harder than I imagined, but I’m already thinking about my next one!  I hope you enjoy it.

Sunday starts with a Sam Fuller, an iconoclastic hyphenate, who wrote, acted and directed. Strangely enough, as a 17-year old newspaper reporter, he broke the story of silent actress Jeanne Eagels’ death.  The afternoon is filled with Faulkner, as we celebrate his birthday. Like many great novelists, he abhorred most of what Hollywood stood for, but took the money anyway. Primetime gives as a double dose of the wonderful Bennett sisters. I’ve read that Connie didn’t think much of her acting and felt more or less like a mannequin for great couture, but I don’t buy it for a minute!  We round at the day with the spectacular Louise Brooks silent, Pandora’s Box.  If you think you can’t sit through a 109 minute silent, think again! And we end the day with two of my favorite imports, the touching, gritty and heartfelt New Wave masterpiece, The 400 Blows (the French title is an idiom meaning “to live a wild life”) and a little known Bergman gem, The Magician.

Monday begins on a decidedly lighter note as we dine and dance and sing and swing with four wonderful films full of Gershwin’s incomparable music. The afternoon turns decidedly chilly as we find ourselves shivering in several films that rely on cold weather and snow as major plot elements. Don’t miss James Arness as a menacing veggie from space!  I took the “B” Challenge as a paean to Warner Bros, the studio that had the machinery, the actors and the style to churn out some solid entertainment, even if it was on a B-budget!.  Look for Ronnie Reagan, Ann Sheridan, Barton MacLane in various roles, and, wait for it -- Hugh Herbert and Allen Jenkins in the epic -- “Sh, The Octopus.” That has to be one the best/worst B-movie titles ever! Set your DVR and keep these all for later binge watching!

Tuesday we welcome our Guest Programmer, “Bessie Clary” from 1944’s “Laura.”  Bessie has a real attitude, but she loves films that feature her fellow “domestics” and she’s not ashamed of it!  Hemmed in by Covid-19 restrictions, the idea of hitting the open road on a motorcycle has real, visceral appeal right about now, so we jump-start our bikes with The Wild One and don’t slow down until prime time!  The evening finds my second challenge, where B is for Bad Guys, only in this iteration, they are all women — and some very, very bad ones, indeed.  Who thought that sweet Nurse Mary Lamont could induce Bob Mitchum to jump out of a window!

Wednesday morning I salute one of the early movie series that I find sometimes breezy and funny and sometimes tense and exciting;  Boston ****, with Chester Morris. Morris always seems to be having fun in these and his infectious style makes up for most of the plot holes! I’ve always been interested in where our favorite stars come from, so I’m offering up an odd lot of films by Okies, including James Garner, Glenda Farrell, Van Heflin, Will Rogers, and perhaps most surprising (at least to me) Kay Francis. OK, let’s admit it, there ARE some movies that men can’t help but shed a tear over, despite their protestations to the contrary.  Here’s a few that leave some guys struggling to find a hankie, including Field of Dreams and the 1958 weeper, Ten North Frederick.

Thursday we dive into a noir birthday party (how weird is that?) with Lizabeth Scott. Too Late for Tears teams her with Dan Duryea and Dead Reckoning brings Lizabeth together with Bogie and Morris Carnovsky; a marvelous actor whose career was essentially ruined by the blacklist. Then we “celebrate” a couple of Oscar clunkers, which won best picture for reasons I can’t even imagine! My Star of the Month is Edmund O’Brien, who despite his generic looks and manner has a way of just jumping off the screen and seeming so REAL. Two films I feature were directed by Ida Lupino and are marvelous for their wide ranging socially relevant topics (serial killers and bigamists) and their understated power.

Friday finds us back in 1922, when Hollywood was consumed with 2 major scandals -- the murder of William Desmond Taylor and the trials of Fatty Arbuckle, who was accused of rape and murder. Fatty was innocent but his career was ruined by the publicity. To this day, despite a long list of potential suspects, the murder of William Desmond Taylor is unsolved.  But, before all of this happened, these two gentlemen were at the height of a couple of very successful careers.  For Challenge #3 I went with films that I think Ben just digs, at least according to an interview he did back in 2017, which includes both Spotlight and Casablanca.  Ben is nothing if not eclectic.  My primetime Friday night spotlight features some of my favorite classic roadside films, based on the title of artist John Baeder’s 1982 book, “Gas, Food and Lodging.” Fill up at the Diner or fill ‘er up at Aline MacMahon’s service station! My TCM underground films are both weird and wonderful.  The Dark Backward is as strange as they come and the film production-insider feature Living in Oblivion is truer than most people know!

Saturday starts on Bunker Hill in LA, a neighborhood that was once almost Studio-C, especially for crime and noir films.  If you wanted grit and interesting urban architecture, many directors and DPs headed up there instinctively.  Sadly, Bunker Hill was eventually leveled and “redeveloped,” so watching these films is one way to bring it back to life. Somehow Saturday afternoon seems like a good time for a handful of Doug McClure films (all but one directed by Kevin Connor) that feature Doug battling large scary creatures with great aplomb.  It’s just flat-out Saturday popcorn movie fun!  None of those movies are essential (clearly!) - but Baby Face absolutely is.  Barbara Stanwyck is at her very best in this raw and powerful 1933 pro-code classic.  From there on out, it’s all about other babies, though none nearly as mendacious as Barbara!

SUNDAY

Before she was Lucy Ricardo, Lucille Ball was known as "Queen of the Bs" at RKO.  We pay tribute to Ball's B-Movie career Sunday morning.  Eventually Ball along with husband, Desi Arnaz, would go on to own RKO studios when they purchased the ailing studio in 1957 and added it to their Desilu empire.  In the afternoon, we're seeing double with movies featuring twins.  The Parent Trap starring Hayley Mills and Hayley Mills is probably one of the best known movies featuring twins.  In this film, twins Susan and Sharon were separated at birth and coincidentally meet at summer camp.  We're premiering the classic 80s hit, Twins, with actors Arnold Schwarzenegger and Danny DeVito who are mirror images of one another.  They also play twins separated at birth.  Then we meet a pair of evil twins both played by Olivia de Havilland in The Dark Mirror.  Finally, Elvis plays identical twin cousins in Kissin' Cousins.  We believe that they're identical twin cousins because it's an Elvis movie.  During primetime, we're taking a trip with the girls of Where the Boys Are and Shag: The Movie. Finally Silent Sunday Night features Harold Lloyd and TCM Imports features Brigitte Bardot. Make sure to watch George O'Hanlon's Joe McDoakes "So You Want to Keep Your Hair" short if you're upset about your receding hairline. 

MONDAY

Monday morning we're paying tribute to everyone's favorite bad guy, Dan Duryea. Then we get caught up in a series of whirlwind WWII romances.  Finally, we're hanging out with everyone's favorite best friends, Carl Reiner and Mel Brooks.  Before Reiner's passing in 2020, he and Brooks ate dinner together every night while they watched Jeopardy and movies.  This evening, we feature a documentary on their famous 2000 year old man skit, and pay tribute to each man's directing career. Brooks' spoof of the Robin Hood legend,  Robin Hood: Men in Tights, and Carl Reiner's comedy, The Man With Two Brains, will be premiered.

TUESDAY

We're headed to Hollywood with a series of movies about trying to hit it big in Hollywood or in Sullivan's Travels' case, trying to make it in Hollywood as a serious director.  During Primetime, we're headed overseas for this month's TCM Spotlight on European vacations.  Each Tuesday will showcase a series of films featuring European vacations.  This week, we're in Italy.  Katharine Hepburn falls head over heels in love during a Venetian vacation in Summertime, Audrey Hepburn falls in love with reporter Gregory Peck while in Rome in Roman Holiday, Diane Lane tries to put her life back together in Tuscany in TCM's premiere of Under the Tuscan Sun, Gidget heads off to Rome with her beau Moondoggie in Gidget Goes to Rome, and Bobby Darin and Sandra Dee fall in love in Italy in Come September

WEDNESDAY

This morning we send many happy returns of the day to James Darren, aka Moondoggie, aka my surfer boyfriend.  We'll see him teach Sandra Dee how to surf in Gidget, woo Pamela Tiffin in For Those Who Think Young and The Lively Set, which will be a TCM premiere.  Later, Darren returns as Moondoggie with new Gidget, Deborah Walley, and tries to keep her from making a fool out of herself in Hawaii in Gidget Goes Hawaiian. Later, we pay tribute to the Big Red Gum jingle with a series of films featuring "Kiss" in the title.  As one can see from the progression of the titles, one could succumb to the Kiss of Death.  In the evening, we're featuring an entire evening of Ben Mankiewicz' picks, including his favorite film, Casablanca and classic journalism films like Citizen Kane, All the President's Men, and Ace in the Hole.  We're also featuring Stanley Kubrick's classic war film, Paths of Glory

THURSDAY

No mystery will remain unsolved with Nick Charles, Philo Vance, Sherlock Holmes, Nancy Drew, Errol Flynn, Sam Spade, Phillip Marlowe, Dana Andrews, and Mike Hammer on the case, during our daytime tribute to sleuthing. In the evening, we're featuring our Star of the Month, Robert Stack.  Stack was discovered by Carole Lombard, with whom he appeared in To Be or Not to Be. Stack was nominated for an Oscar for his amazing turn in Written on the Wind.  Later, he would become known for his starring role in Desilu's The Untouchables and later as host of one of my favorite shows, Unsolved Mysteries

FRIDAY

We're celebrating Judy Garland's 100th birthday with a daytime and primetime salute to one of classic cinema's greatest and most tragic stars.  Of course, primetime will kick of with Judy's star-making role in The Wizard of Oz.  Garland will forever be identified with Dorothy Gale, the young girl who just wanted to cast her troubles aside and go "Somewhere Over the Rainbow." This song became Garland's signature song and for good reason, I think she deeply identified with the lyrics.  Later, we're headed WAY over the rainbow, to outer space, to check out some space babes, like Barbarella, Cat-Women of the Moon, The Queen of Outer Space, and the Fire Maidens of Outer Space.  Between Judy and the Space Babes, we're going to jazz up our Westinghouse refrigerator panels by following the directions outlined in Match Your Mood,  my all-time favorite Short. 

SATURDAY

June is the most popular month for weddings.  Saturday morning, we'll feature a series of films featuring a bride headed down the aisle, some happily and others unhappily--like Princess Buttercup in the TCM premiere of The Princess Bride.   Then, unfortunately, not all marriages work out.  During the afternoon, we'll see a trio of films featuring marriages on the rocks.  Some might work out and others may not. Saturday night's episode of The Essentials will pay tribute to the disco classic, the film that put John Travolta on the map, Saturday Night Fever.  Then we'll keep the Travolta-train going with the other film that put him on the map--Grease.  Noir Alley features the Poverty Row classic, Detour, featuring my queen, Ann Savage.  Then we'll close out the evening with some of Savage's other films--is she like Vera in all of them? One can only hope. And of course, we close out the week with my second favorite short, The Wonderful World of Tupperware

NOTES:

Just a few comments, as the schedule is fairly self-explanatory (as usual!).

SUNDAY

The schedule begins with films that have either a main character confined to a wheelchair throughout the movie, or feature a memorable scene involving a wheelchair. The primetime hours focus on mental illness, and include The Silent Sunday Night selection, and two Ingmar Bergman films on TCM Imports.

MONDAY

Today celebrates director Ed Wood's birthday, high(low?)lighting several of his films, and includes the excellent Ed Wood (1994). The evening is devoted to Star of the Month Dana Andrews, and features the usual suspects of his fine filmography, as well as a few seldom-seen-on-TCM selections, including Swamp Water (1941), which I thoroughly enjoyed the one and only time it's been shown on TCM.

TUESDAY

The morning block showcases some stunning locales by featuring films shot in and around various state and national parks. Primetime gives us films presented by our guest programmer from 1944, Mortimer Brewster. Mr. Brewster seems to have chosen a night of films whose titles reflect a day in his life.

WEDNESDAY

I am always intrigued and impressed by directors (and the films they make) that include some kind of interesting/technically difficult/artistic decision. The “long take” has long been a favorite example of this. Wednesday morning features films that contain at least one shot whose preparation and execution astounds me!

The primetime block is devoted to Shakespearean adaptations by two of my favorite directors, Akira Kurosawa and Orson Welles. (NOTE – I didn't realize until much too late that LonesomePolecat also had a very similar theme in her schedule. So I apologize for the similarity. I promise I'm not copying off your homework! Let's chalk it up to “Great minds...etc etc”)😉

THURSDAY

The day starts with a colorful theme, and ends with a string of “B” movies from Universal. The Inner Sanctum Mysteries started off as a radio program that ran through the 40s and early 50s. Universal bought the film rights as a vehicle for Lon Chaney Jr., and ended up making 6 films in the series. To round out the night, I included two other Universal Horror personal faves, The Black Cat (1934) and The Old Dark House (1932).

FRIDAY

Friday starts off with more Universal pictures, featuring 50s sci-fi directed by Jack Arnold. The afternoon is dedicated to the harmonica ((which is really just a shameless tactic to throw Once Upon a Time in the West (1968) in there!))

Primetime features a run of films that Ben Mankiewicz encourages all viewers to see, including the TCM Underground pick of the week, Jackie Brown (1997).

SATURDAY

Saturday morning and daytime are reserved for a film series I hold dear, the Showa-era Godzilla movies. While mostly schlocky, I enjoy them unabashedly, and still maintain that the original, Godzilla (1954), is a brilliant, artistic masterpiece.

Primetime is dedicated to the “B”ad guys and gals of film, and kicks off with The Essentials, featuring Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan (1982). Not only do I think this is the best Star Trek movie, I consider it to tick off almost every box that makes for ANY essential film. It has a great story/theme, a fantastic script, fine acting, good direction/cinematography, a beautiful score, and perfectly captures the “feeling” of Star Trek that made fans love the original series so much.

The rest of the evening features more delicious “baddies”, ranging from Nurse Ratched to “The Bad” himself, and from Vince Stone to the textbook femme fatale, Kathie Moffat in this week's second Noir Alley selection, Out of the Past (1947).

Sunday
Our Sunday daytime programming features an array of bad guys and gals who are, well, not quite right in the head. Primetime features a double feature of Gig Young. Young received his first Oscar nomination for Come Fill the Cup (1951) and won the Oscar for They Shoot Horses, Don’t They? (1969). Silent Sunday Night features a classic swashbuckler starring Douglas Fairbanks. TCM Imports features two great Lino Ventura performances from 1969.

Monday
Monday features an all-day tribute to the wonderful and lovely, Marsha Hunt. Hunt was a very talented actress who excelled in all sorts of roles. We pay tribute to her range with some of her best performances. During Primetime, we are fortunate to welcome Father O’Malley from Going My Way as our Guest Programmer. He has selected a variety of films featuring priests and nuns and hopes that everyone enjoys this special night of programming.

Tuesday
Our daytime theme takes us into the city of Berlin. All of our films either take place in or feature a scene in Berlin. From classic spy tales to an hysterical comedy, savor the excitement and tension that is Berlin. Primetime continues our Star of the Month tribute to the beautiful and radiant, Linda Darnell. Darnell was a great talent and her range is on full display tonight with a musical, a western, two dramas including her starring role in Forever Amber (1947), and a comedy. 

Wednesday
Wednesday features a salute to the dynamic actress and beauty, Lee Remick. We have a day of films as diverse as the actress herself, including three films that have not aired on TCM for over 20 years! Our primetime lineup continues our month’s spotlight on the history of the New York Times Best Sellers list. 

Thursday
Our daytime theme takes us Around the World with Orson Welles! In 1955, Welles created a short series for British television touring different countries including France, Spain, Austria, and England. We pay homage to Welles with a day of his performances with each film featuring footage from a different country. Primetime continues the beloved Bob’s Picks series, a popular programming block where Robert Osborne would share films that were new to TCM, underseen, had not been featured in primetime, or significant. Bob’s Picks always featured variety and we have something for everyone. 

Friday
A full Friday filled with films from 20th Century Fox! Our morning kicks off with four films from Sol M. Wurtzel’s B unit. We then join the great detective, Charlie Chan, for four fun mysteries. The late afternoon concludes with three films from Ida Lupino at Fox, including two film noir gems. Our Friday primetime block continues the fun as we take a look at one of the screen’s most glamorous couples, Tyrone Power and Gene Tierney. Two of Fox’s most popular stars, they made three films together and we have them for you tonight. TCM Underground features one of the most promising young British actresses of the 1960s, Carol White.  

Saturday
Join us for an all-day birthday tribute to the extraordinary, Joan Fontaine. Best remembered for her roles in two Alfred Hitchcock films, Fontaine could play the innocent woman better than anyone. Her filmography features a number of excellent performances and we are pleased to showcase many of her finest roles today. The Essentials this week features Richard Burton in one of his greatest performances as the titular character in Becket (1964). On Noir Alley, we have a TCM premiere of the Edward G. Robinson film noir Night Has a Thousand Eyes (1948). We conclude the week with two films featuring the legendary Lillian Gish.

Thank you once again for doing the wonderful SOTM Now Playing Guides.  I  love them and hope you will continue to do them.  (I've saved the images of all the ones you have done for my SOTMs and now have a great collection.)

I had a blast coming up with the ideas for the Challenge and I am totally thrilled with the 7(!!) super schedules.   I never cease to be amazed at the fun and creative ways all of you approach each TCM Challenge.   You could/should all be full-time TCM Programmers!
