Well hellooooooooooo lzcutter.


Here's an official ruling on the number of premieres used for this challenge. If you check out page 2 here: http://forums.tcm.com/jive/tcm/thread.jspa?threadID=147626&start=15&tstart=0 Point #9 states:



You may program seven TCM premieres for this challenge. Please note the premiere when you list your films.


Scroll all the way down the page. You don't need glasses. It's a lot of material to peruse. I look forward to reading your schedule.


Oh and by the by...Tom Doniphon staggering to his house and setting that room on fire, just about broke my heart. :-(

Kingrat, I noticed that also. Both versions of When Ladies Meet are fine, but possibly the 1933 version is a little more enjoyable. And as for the Big Country, it's a fantastic film, which never gets tiring. Either way, I'd be watching a lot of TCM the week they program one of these entries! :)

Sorry for another basic question but my TCM import choice doesn't fit into any of the studio libraries listed (probably most of the imports would not). Do I use it anyhow and mark it as a premiere?

Also, my choice is a 1971 film with Jean Gabin and Simone Signoret. Can't we just say that any film with those two together _is_ a classic? I _will_ abide by your ruling, Countess Delave.

Howdy Countess. :D


Hmmm....Simone Signoret. Cigarettes, sophistication, continental. Hmmmm. I'm a big fan.


But for this Challenge I'm hosting, films made after 1969 are not permitted unless you're programming them for the White House. And though our elected officials could learn a thing or two...or three from the glorious Ms. Signoret alas and alack, I'd have to ask you to save that film for the 15th TCM Programming Challenge.


I look forward to your schedule and whatever programming surprises you have up your sleeve. Remember, this Challenge will end on Saturday.


Thank you.

Okay, CM,


I'm on board. Am I still correct that I can use any foreign studio film and call it a premiere or does it mean that I can only use foreign films that have previously shown on TCM (unless they were released via any of the approved studios on the list)? Please clarify that point. Thanks.

Hi Countess DeLave. You may use any foreign studio and list the film as a PREMIERE, as long as the film is not made after 1969.


Now you've made me (and others I'm sure) curious to see if you go with a French, British, Egyptian, Russian, Brazilian, Antarctican or Transylvanian foreign film.


(Me, I'm rooting for a Transylvanian film, but I'm the host. I'm supposed to be neutral).

Notes on a Schedule:


This one was made a tad tougher by Cinemaven?s rule of no films after 1969. I am a lover of film, all film, from all decades. But even disregarding that, it made the Challenge tougher. I hope I measure up.


The week chosen is December 5th, 2010 (a little over a year from now).


Sunday is Obama Movie Mania, Cinemaven?s required 24 hour film festival for all branches of the government. Since those government officials may still be like me and have all 12 hours of Ken Burn?s recent documentary sitting unwatched on their Tivos, here is a chance for them to see our wonderful National Parks. Here they can enjoy the classic beauty of our parks through the decades of film.


My pick for Silent Sunday Nights is the classic A Modern Musketeer starring the great Doug Fairbanks, Sr. Y?all know how I feel about Doug. Here he jumps around the cliffs of Canyon de Chelly and the ledges of the Grand Canyon. If that doesn?t make their jaws drop, they need to get out of D.C. pronto and go explore our National Parks.


We finish up Obama Movie Mania, with two films for TCM Imports, how better to soften up International Affairs than with two films by Fellini?


Monday kicks off with a salute to that wonderful actress, Maria Ouspenskaya. ?Were you ever bitten by a wolf?? No, but we have been entranced with your talent for years. A much deserved showcase for an actress that many of us refer to as Mother Molo.


Baghdad by the Bay has been the location of many great classic films. Monday evening spotlights some of the Film Noirs of Fog City, one of the many monikers for the beautiful city of San Francisco.


Tuesday is a salute to Commercial Appeal, films starring actors who later went on to be the face of products sold on tv. These are faces and products we, of a certain generation, remember.


Tuesday evening to celebrate the 69th anniversary of America?s entry into World War II, I selected a group of films that focus on how women dealt with the war. From the home front to the front lines to the prison camps, Women and War reminds us that war is not just about men and their sacrifices.


Wednesday is look at City Confidential, those hard-biting expose stories that every major and minor city seems to have, at least according to Hollywood.


Think it?s just the cities that have expose stories? Not according to Hollywood. Even streets can tell stories of love, crime and panic, all the better if shrouded in mystery, fog and shadows. Like those kind of films? Set your GPS now! is for you.


Wednesday finishes up with Bootless John Wayne, a set of non-western John Wayne films.


Thursday introduces us to Sons of famous movie characters. From strong heroes like Sinbad and Captain Blood to milquetoast heroes like Paleface to scientific heroes, all of them have offspring. The question is, do the sons match up? You decide with this daytime offering of programming.


Thursday evening TCM throws its spotlight on that tough-talking, heart-of-gold Texan that some know as the ?Oomph Girl? and the majority of us know as Ann Sheridan. Each Thursday evening throughout the month, TCM will focus on Ms. Sheridan. The films this evening show both her dramatic skills and her flair for comedy. John Garfield, James Cagney , Monty Wooley, Bette Davis and a host of others all co-star this evening with our red rose of Texas.


Friday, the brunettes strike back with a series of films from Fox Studios featuring three of the most beautiful faces to ever grace the silver screen, Gene Tierney, Linda Darnell and for the ladies, Tyrone Power.


Friday night we celebrate the wonderful, lusty Victor McLaglen?s birthday with a series of films under the title Muster In. These films, all military films, allow you to live vicariously without having to suffer the heat, the sand, the hang-overs and the brawling. Downside, you don?t get to be *that* close to Cary Grant.


TCM Underground goes classic with two classic horror films just made for late, late night viewing.


Get up bright and early though, put the coffee on and pour your cereal quickly because you are about to embark on a big jungle adventure serial with the one and only Frank ?Bring ?em Back Alive? Buck. Saturday morning?s Breakfast Serials on TCM. Just what the kid in all of us hopes for.


Saturday afternoon is the kick-off of a salute to the famed Iverson Movie Ranch, once located in the San Fernando Valley. From silent films to classic westerns and war films, from serials to cult favorites, from c-grade sci-fi films to classic television shows, some of our most beloved movies have scenes shot at the Iverson.


Leading into that evening?s The Essentials is a TCM Original Documentary, Cowboy Up: Riding the Iverson Movie Ranch introduced by Robert Osborn and Alec Baldwin. This documentary includes interviews with actors, directors and crew members who worked at the Iverson as well as classic film clips. So, Cowboy Up! You won?t be disappointed.


The Essentials spotlights a war film, Tell It To the Marines starring Lon Chaney that was shot at the Iverson in 1927.


Saturday late night concludes with lessons in Do It Yourself. The DIY Channel can teach you how to re-grout your bathroom, fix your garbage disposal, tinker around the house. DIY, TCM ?style, you can learn to stuff a wild bikini, murder your wife, succeed in business or marry a millionaire (and never have to re-grout your bathroom again!)


A little something for everyone! At least I hope.


*An additional note, unlike the last few challenges where I have not had a schedule eligible for voting, on this Challenge, my schedule will be in the running.*

Congrats on your schedule! You have a lot of great movies in there that will please many TCM fans. It is neat we have both included the Warner at War special in our schedules, and your Essentials pick is great. No one would think of Tell it to the Marines, but it makes so much sense!

Good Luck!

LZCUTTER....thank you for your participation in the TCM 14th Programming Challenge. Your schedule has a plenty of "oomph" in it.


For your programming day in the White House, I see you're reminding our elected officials of environmental issues. After all, earth is the only planet they live on. And what Lady Senator (or Nancy Pelosi) would not want to spend time with Jimmy, Victor, Gary, or Gable while looking at some of the greatest vistas in North America.


"Maria...I just met a girl named Maria." You spotlight one of Hollywood's great character actors. I smiled when I saw her stand behind Mother Gin Sling in "The Shanghai Gesture" And she did look downright cute in "King's Row" too.


Amazing...the Duke, without a horse in sight. And a "Son of..." who's really a son of. You touch base on the distaff side of the effects of war and that there ARE cities in between L.A. and New York. (As a big-city East Coast girl, I need to be reminded).


The "How To" list is clever, and what would a schedule from a gal of the West be without some good ol' fashion classic westerns?


Thank you lzcutter for choosing to participate in the 14th PROGRAMMING CHALLENGE!!!

Most of this schedule is self explanatory. I came up with two possibilities for days that the politicians could sit down and watch a day's worth of movies. On Sunday, there is a day's worth of movies rather cynically looking at some of the issues facing our elected officials, while on Saturday, I honor several of the Cabinet departments with movies that at least obliquely pertain to them. I would have put the two days together, but the rules require starting the


April 10 marks the 22nd birthday of Haley Joel Osment, whom I suppose you could consider the demon spawn you might get if you crossed Hayley Mills with Donny Osmond. (Or, maybe not.) His most famous line comes from the 1999 movie *The Sixth Sense* in which he says to Bruce Willis, "I see debt people!" Or something like that. Apparently, as you can see throughout the week, it took a lot of takes to get the line right....


For inflicting a week's worth of bad puns on you, I'm probably going to hell. IF so, I might as well take TCM with me, as I've done on Monday night. Tuesday night is a salute to one of the great cult movies, *Glen or Glenda*, which is marked by pitting one of Hollywood's most famous Glen(n)s against one of its most famous Glendas. You can decide for yourselves which one is better. Wednesday night continues the politics theme by showing four movies with portrayals of real presidents (in order, Franklin Roosevelt, Thomas Jefferson, Andrew Johnson, and Abraham Lincoln), followed by a more whimsical look at Theodore Roosevelt. Thursday night sees Charles Boyer as TCM's Star of the Month. I don't think he's ever gotten that honor before. Friday night is given to music. Several movies have used music from Tchaikovsky's Fifth Symphony as part of the score. John Nesbitt used it as the opening theme to his "Passing Parade" shorts, too, so I included one of those as it made the timing work out much better. The two "Underground" movies aren't very underground, I'll admit, although they are warped looks at the music industry.


The TCM Silent Sunday Nights movie is Mary Pickford's *Sparrows*, and the import is Louis Malle's *Zazie dans le m?tro*. Zazie is a little girl who is sent to Paris to visit her uncle, and wants to do nothing more during her time in Paris than to ride the metro. Unfortunately, it's on strike. So she responds by becoming a holy terror, making life miserable for everybody around her, but humorous for the viewers. The TCM Essential is *High School Confidential!* It's a movie that probably bears no resemblance to the way high school was for anybody, but it's unintentionally funny.


The premieres are: the 1933 Paramount version of *Alice in Wonderland*;

*Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea*;

Elia Kazan's *Man on a Tightrope*;

Ralph Bellamy typecasting himself as FDR in *Sunrise at Campobello*;

The "Poverty Row" movie *Secrets of a Co-Ed*; and

scantily-clad Raquel Welch in *Fantastic Voyage*

Fedya, lzcutter, love both your schedules. I see people holding their heads trying to decide which of your concepts is more ingenious! Countess, we want to see your week, too.


A double feature of La Strada and I Vitelloni would be almost more cinematic bliss than I could handle.
