[b]TCM PROGRAMMING CHALLENGE #14: [U]VOTING THREAD[/U].[/B]


Recommended Posts

WELCOME TO THE VOTING THREAD OF THE 14TH TCM PROGRAMMING CHALLENGE.

 

The challenge this time around was to program films for the White House so that our newly elected officials could learn, through classic films, how to best govern us. Our participants' schedules were none worse for the wear by being asked not to post films made after 1969. Participants Audreyforever, Countess DeLave, Fedya, Filmlover, Kingrat, lzcutter and Norma Desmond have submitted schedules that are a smorgasbord of movie stars, formatting styles, humor, films and wonderfully imaginative programming. Personally I think they're all winners.

 

If you're a registered member (as of October 1st, 2009), please look over the schedules below and vote either on this thread for via a PM to me, which programming schedule you prefer. All of our participants put in a lot of time and work. I know they'll appreciate your consideration.

 

I will have a post for each participant's schedule.

 

Thank you. Now...the schedules will speak for themselves, and speaking for MYSELF I humbly thank you for your patience.

*If you're a registered member (as of October 1st, 2009),*

 

MissMaven,

 

Just to clarify the point, in order to be able to vote, you must have registered as a TCM board member on or before October 1, 2009.

 

Is that correct?

*Is it my screen or is most of your schedule an notes missing?*

 

Movieman,

 

Yeah, most of my schedule and all my notes are missing as is Norma Desmond's schedule and notes.

 

I suspect that the first post is too long for the software to handle. Cinemaven is in the midst of correcting that so stay tuned.

 

It will get easier to read.

AUDREYFOREVER NOTES:

 

I will make this as brief yet specific as possible...my schedule consists of a variety of decades, genre's, stars, studio's, and subjects that I hope all will find enjoyable.

 

On Sunday, I have chosen a lot of musicals, starting off with one who is synonymous with it, Fred Astaire. ?Swing Fever? is briefly seen on TCM, and is very entertaining. Something always brings me close to Morale Booster's, and boy is there a great line up of them here! Blake Edwards gets the spotlight tonight, and two different but good films will be chosen.

 

On Monday, Andy Hardy is cookin' with nine Hardy family films. I've picked these because I love Andy Hardy, and I would like to see some of these again! W.R. Burnett is a great author, and some of the film adaptations of chilling and scintillating. ?Nobody Lives Forever? is forgotten, yet a great film noir. I figured it's an October schedule, why not put some Lugosi pics in there, so three horror movies are being shown. Epics are great, and I love the Roman Empire, so here are two great examples.

 

My choice of spotlight is Character Actors, and here are five good ones and fine performances. I always wished TCM would block a couple of hours to movies with ?It Happened...? in the title, so here's my chance! You can't go wrong with Jean Arthur or William Powell, so here's a great opportunity to see some b-movies.

 

Kathryn Grayson has been star of the month before, but the beauty she possesses is powerful, and the voice is synonymous with her face. ?Anchors Aweigh? is one of my favorite films ever, and ?Thousands Cheer? the same.

 

My ?All Night...? day consist of war films, politics, law, history, and media, and I hope the president will agree that it is non-stop entertainment.

 

I chose to give a day to people's Early Efforts because some actors are either cute or funny towards the beginning of their career. I don't know about you, but I like them! Western Comedies are, well, Western Comedies! And who ever gave a better performance than Audrey Hepburn in ?Wait Until Dark??

 

I love Nancy Drew, so why not have breakfast in bed and remember 2380 for the next two weeks! And Teresa Wright is so human, and some of her work I can continually watch, so why not see her starting off with one of the great movies of our time, The Best Years of Our Lives?

 

I hope you enjoy whoever is voting...

COUNTESS DeLAVE?S NOTES:

 

I picked the week of April 18-24 after I fleshed out the White House assignment. Since I was spending an entire day on ?The Environment?, I chose Earth Day, April 22nd.

 

I have used films from studios previously disallowed from the challenges (but okayed for Premieres by Cinemaven).

 

Sunday. Learn To Kern is my homage to the music of Jerome Kern. 9 Lives of a Cat includes nine films, starting with ?The Cat and the Fiddle? (which has music by Jerome Kern). TCM has not shown this in years. Originally, I wanted to program ?Le Chat?, with Jean Gabin and Simone Signoret (1971) but CineMaven correctly put me in my place and said ?no? to anything after 1969. That left ?La Chatte? as my TCM Import.

 

Monday. Lives 7,8 and 9 continue. If you?ve not seen ?Cat Women of the Moon?, give yourself a good laugh. It?s very campy and public domain. Marie Windsor? Afterwards, you?ll want to watch The Narrow Margin. The evening is devoted to writer Thorne Smith and includes a Premiere of ?Nightlife of the Gods.?

 

Tuesday. Towhead Tuesday is an entire day devoted to blondes. I love Alice White and would like to convince TCM to showcase her films (especially ones that haven?t been on TCM for years). ?It?s a Great Life? has the Duncan Sisters and a great little dance known as the Hoosier Hop. A long time ago, I noticed just how many college films Betty Grable made. It?s a good thing that she escaped to Broadway or she might have continued to play co-eds for her entire career. ?Collegiate? and ?College Swing? are Premieres. There are a lot of women on this day (but not all).

 

Wednesday. There are so many stars who died young or tragically. I?ve scheduled one film for each of a number of them. My Star of the Month is the wonderful, unique and talented Thelma Ritter.

 

Thursday. I chose the Environment as my theme for the entire day. I had many films and nuances of subject matter to choose from but I had to do serious paring of the schedule. Yes, it?s Earth Day. I wanted to get the politicians in a light mood with ?It Grows on Trees? and ?Jon & Kate Plus 8 Go Green? (please forgive me but I couldn?t resist-I?ve never watched it). ?Calling Hedy Lamarr? is about Hedy?s inventions in communications. The mandatory lunch break with Michael Moore is the only way that the White House could get him off their back. This way he has a captive audience (who can?t leave) for 45 minutes. ?Life of The Party? has one of the most bizarre scenes: the two lovers smoke cigarettes and sing ?Let?s Have Another Cigarette? as if they were making love. I included ?Dangerous Mission? because it has beautiful scenes of Glacier National Park, in color. ?Plagues & Pleasures on the Salton Sea ?is a great little documentary. Very entertaining.

 

Friday. Friday I used the one theme for the evening and premiered ?Louisiana Hussy? for TCM Underground.

 

Saturday. It?s Shirley MacLaine?s birthday and I get to start out with a very funny MGM comedy that hasn?t been on in years: ?Ask Any Girl?. Shirley?s a secretary caught between Gig Young and David Niven. Maybe TCM Programmer will get the hint. Saturday?s Essential is ?Laura.? Need I say more? The remainder of the evening is programmed with more great film noirs, including a Premiere of ?Phantom Lady.?

FEDYA?S NOTES:

 

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 the schedules to start on Sunday morning. Otherwise I would have started the schedule on a Monday morning and had it run through the next Sunday, putting the two days for the politicians together.

 

And since I didn't make it clear, "bed people" is of course movies with characters who are bed-ridden or forced to stay in bed for an extended period. That would be Barbara Stanwyck in ?Sorry, Wrong Number?; the mother in ?Our Mother's House?; the Roddy MacDowell character in ?How Green Was My Valley?; and Louis Calhern's wife in ?The Asphalt Jungle.?

 

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.?

FILMLOVER?S NOTES:

 

Hi, everyone,

 

Just made it in on time. Here are some notes?Obviously, if you have Halloween, you go all-out on your schedule.

 

For the Movies at the White House day, I used part of Lincoln?s Gettsyburg address over 4 movies. Then went into a new documentary about ?Presidents in the Movies.? I then did some research and found out his 5 favorite films and used them in the list. For the first time ever, I have an evening beginning at 7:30 instead of 8?but, hey, if the President says he wants it played at 7:30, who am I to argue?

 

For Tuesday?s schedule, I wanted to execute a whole day of movies you can watch around the clock?because they are based on the clock.

 

Jack Holt, who I give a salute to, was actually a very well known actor of hia period. He is also the father of Tim Holt. Jack Holt?s profile was copied by cartoonist Chester Gould for the model of Dick Tracy.

 

Robert Donat is my Star of the Month.

 

Saturday, I chose to make a really fun day, like the kind we had when we were kids! Starting with the Blondie Theater, where two movies of the Blondie series get shown on Saturday morning. That?s followed by the first installment of ?Laurel & Hardy Shorts Showcase?.

 

Then there?s the Batman serial from Columbia. I figured it would be fun to start our Saturday mornings.

 

The ?Ray Bradbury & Ray Harryhausen?s Saturday Matinee? is an idea I had because I thought it would be great to have the two Rays sit around talking about films they made and others they themselves were inspired by.

 

Insomnia Theater is just a nod to two films that always seem to put me to sleep very soon into their stories. For CK, I am usually in Slumberland by the time Mrs. Kane is on her first puzzle, and for 2001 I am usually there by the time the spaceship is approaching the space station.

KINGRAT?S NOTES:

 

According to lzcutter's list, Joan Bennett has never been Star of the Month. Since the hundredth anniversary of her birth is Feb. 27, 2010, what better day to show ?Scarlet Street? on The Essentials, and what better month to feature her films?

 

Sunday begins with six films that whose remakes are better known than these versions. ?What Price Hollywood?? is the original of ?A Star Is Born?; ?Satan Met a Lady? is an oddball adaptation of ?The Maltese Falcon? with Alison Skipworth in the Sydney Greenstreet role. ?A Town Like Alice? later became a hit mini-series. The rest of the day features comedians, clowns and acrobats, even in Ingmar Bergman's ?The Naked Night? (?Sunset of a Clown? is one translation of the Swedish title).

 

The circus theme continues into Monday with the first of the 1960s musicals directed by Charles Walters. Then, get ready for serious glamor with a triple feature of Lana Turner movies. Monday concludes with six westerns by directors better known for their work in other genres. Three of the films are TCM premieres. Warlock was the subject of a recent ramble, Rock Hudson IS ?Taza, Son of Cochise? and ?These Thousand Hills? is a little-known gem. ?They Came to Cordura? is a particular favorite of mine.

 

Tuesday is CineMaven's special challenge: ?MOVIE DAY AT THE WHITE HOUSE?, also known as OBAMARAMA. We'll start with ?Mr. Smith Goes to Washington?, the ultimate movie about American idealism and political corruption. A reminder of the ideals the administration started with is definitely a good thing. ?A Face in the Crowd? seems more like prophecy than movie, with its entertainer turned politician. ?The Grapes of Wrath? is still the best film about the underclass, and the contemporary update is El Norte. I chose ?Philadelphia? over a better film, ?Milk?, because AIDS is still a public health crisis. By then our viewers need a break, hence Duck Soup, a comedy about militarism. ?Fail-Safe? shows the president's decision-making process step by step; Henry Fonda sets a great example. ?Breaker Morant? concerns the wrongs done by decent men in wartime, and ?A Soldier's Story? focuses specifically on racial tensions in the army. ?The Hill? is the necessary film for those who must wrestle with military prisons like Abu Ghraib and Guantanamo. ?They Were Expendable? shows the cost of military decisionmaking. After so much intensity, our audience needs a release, so how about the cheesiness of ?Mars Attacks??

 

Wednesday salutes Joan Bennett as Star of the Month. Thursday takes its cue from the first film, ?Random Harvest?, and assembles a variety of films. King Rat makes an appearance in prime time--maybe not a big surprise.

 

A recent thread about the most handsome movie actor mentioned Tyrone Power, Guy Madison, Alain Delon, and Terence Stamp, among others, and with good reason. Who's your favorite? Friday, Feb. 26, 2010 marks the 110th anniversary of the birth of director Jean Negulesco, so we'll celebrate by showing six of his films, including the TCM premiere of ?Three Coins in the Fountain.? For a decade or so Negulesco was a prominent Hollywood director. Here's a rare chance for an overview of his work. TCM Underground goes psychedelic with Head and The Maltese Bippy. Tune in, turn on, and drop out.

 

Could Margaret Lockwood be considered the English equivalent of Joan Bennett? Check out four of her films, including the premiere of ?Bedelia?, based on a novel by Vera Caspary, author of ?Laura?. Margaret plays a new bride who may be a black widow. Two Powell & Pressburger films about WWII follow, then Frankenheimer's superb ?The Train?, perhaps the last big black & white action picture. After ?Scarlet Street? airs on The Essentials, the natural follow-up is a night of noir to conclude the week.

LZCUTTER?S NOTES:

 

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.

First off, everyone did such a great job this year!

 

*AudreyForever* - I loved your Renoir double feature and your W.R. Burnett spotlight. Great job on the Obama day as well! And showing Young Mr. Lincoln, Bullets or Ballots, The Great McGinty and How the West was Won all in a 24 hour period? That's my cuppa tea. A remarkable schedule! I enjoyed it so much!

 

*Countess DeLave* - You made it very tough! I adored your schedule from top to bottom. I only hope that the *TCM Programmer takes a good hard look at this schedule* - all those precodes, silents and continuing themes - very nicely tied up..... LOVE the cats......very well done. Super job! Anyone who puts MICROCOSMOS on their list is my friend forever. And your mandatory lunch break WITH MICHAEL MOORE had me on the floor! Again, my congratulations on a really wonderful schedule!

 

*Fedya* - Again you have made me laugh! I was giddy waiting to see what theme would come next - bed head or bled..... and Charles Boyer...ooh, la la! I would love to see him as SOTM. You have won my heart for that. I think I like the night of bedridden characters the best. Glorious job!

 

*Filmlover* - Your schedule really hit the spot - I adore all the old horror movies, and really miss seeing them back to back. I loved the Plan your Day segment! Brilliant! You Light Up My Wife made me spit out my tea laughing. And Robert Donat? He's my true love... right after Ben Johnson. :) As usual, you did a super job! How to pick from all these great lists??

 

*Kingrat* - Fascinating list! I cannot believe this is your first year.... am I wrong? You did a splendid job! I really love the "earlier versions" idea. Your spotlight on British films had me salivating, and I have been longing for some W.C. Fields for the two years I have had TCM.... maybe this will be the spur to get *TCM to do a Fields film festival!* I also loved your picks for Obamarama... great, thoughtful choices. And The Train, too? Count me in. Congratulations, you made it very difficult!

 

*Lzcutter* - I adore travel.... and your schedule has helped me pack my bags for a jaunt around the National Park system..... a treasure that our leaders must surely keep intact for all future generations. I especially liked that the travel theme continued throughout your schedule. Maria Ouspenskaya - WHAT A GREAT pick for a tribute, or maybe SOTM? Fantastic... (did you know that she really plays the piano in Love Affair? and was trained in opera?). I just loved that your schedule was tied together all the way through like a spiral... it was incredible how each theme seemed to refer back to other sections in the schedule. I can't resist those brunettes, and especially Gene, Linda, and Ty. But by far my favorite segment was the tribute to Vic MacLaglen, he deserves a day to himself, but then you did it again! You neatly tied it up in a mini theme! How do you do that? Superb job.

 

*Norma* - I believe I voted for you last year or the year before... your schedules are very close to my own favorites. And again, I like what I see - starting off with Gilbo.... ahhhh, the beautiful but fated pair. I love Shakespeare on film, and I am dying to see Welles Othello, so again, you capture my interest with Bardolatry....and Sessue Hayakawa is just amazing, right from his 1915 role (I would love to see these other silent films) on up. I was thrilled with your Variations on a Theme section. What a great idea! I have always wanted to do a compare and contrast between the versions of these films. Not only that, but you go on to Painting! Another GREAT idea. Super , super schedule. And thanks for including spotlights of actors not normally highlighted. They deserve their own days, too.

 

 

All of you put in some hard work here and I am giving you all a standing ovation for such great great ideas! but my vote goes to .........

 

*LZCUTTER - for great themes within themes, neatly tied together all the way through the entire schedule. Super duper job.*

*How do we respond by private message?*

 

King,

 

The easiest thing to do is to click on CineMaven's name in a post and it will take you to her user info page. At the top of the page you will see "Private Message User". Click on that and it will set you up to send a PM to CMaven.

 

or you can get to it this way:

 

In the upper right of the screen it should say, Welcome Kingrat

 

Underneath that it says, Your Control Panel

Then there is an envelope and (0)

And underneath that is Logout.

 

Click on the envelope and that will take you to your Private Message area and you can compose an email to CMaven and send it from there.

Jackie,

 

Thanks so much for voting and for voting for my schedule. I know it's not easy choosing a schedule this time around.

 

Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Well I have done my civic duty here at "TCM City" (to borrow a phrase from Ms. Cutter) and cast my vote with Miss Maven... I look forward to hearing the results.

 

But in the meantime I will second some of what has been said here already... a LOT of really great choices. It was not an easy decision. I found themes I liked in every schedule.

 

So congrats to all the candidates... you really worked hard... and it shows! And congrats to Miss Maven too... I am SURE it was not easy putting this all together. Nicely done, kiddo.

 

Good luck everybody. Best wishes, and thanks for the fun read.

Everyone did such wonderful work. I'm always impressed by the creativity and effort you all put into these schedules. I don't think I could draw up a shedule for one day, let alone a week! I cast my "secret ballot" vote, but I here add my congratulations and admiration for all who participated. TCM should be proud. :)
