about disney live action films. does this include live action films they own that they didn't make? my question mainly pertains to the original Muppet films--I want to know if they're legal.


Also, I'm still confused about the extra 5 from a single studio---does this studio still have to be one of the ones you mentioned, or is it a "5 from one additional studio"? (sorry I'm a little slow)


And one last question: for the "food" challenge, do beverages count as food? i.e., not that I'm going to, but can I schedule "one two three" because it's about Coca Cola, plus other soft drink related movies? or do you want actual food?


thanks :)

*about disney live action films. does this include live action films they own that they didn't make? my question mainly pertains to the original Muppet films--I want to know if they're legal.*


The Muppet Movie was produced by Jim Henson Films and Associated Film Distributors- For "The Muppet Movies" you would be able to program them under the "Any Ten Premieres" rule and not the "Preferred Studio" rule as the Jim Henson Studios and Associated Film Distributors are not on the preferred list.


*Also, I'm still confused about the extra 5 from a single studio---does this studio still have to be one of the ones you mentioned, or is it a "5 from one additional studio"? (sorry I'm a little slow)*


As Kyle pointed out: One's choice of "Preferred Studio" allows one to choose any 5 films from a *listed* studio's library (including Warners post-1948 film library) for use.


The other ten can come from outside the list" but they can not violate the restrictions on those studios. - i. e. *NO* Disney Animation. The Five "Preferred Studio" films have to come from just one of the listed studios and you have to declare the studio in your notes..


*And one last question: for the "food" challenge, do beverages count as food? i.e., not that I'm going to, but can I schedule "one two three" because it's about Coca Cola, plus other soft drink related movies? or do you want actual food?*


No, I'm afraid it has to be actual food. If food is part of *One, Two, Three* you can work it in but I don't recall that being the case. But it has been quite some time since I have seen the film.


Hope this helps!

Capuchin's Programming Notes --


I feel that Nov, 2007 was one of the best months on TCM because it was filled with series (Torchy Blaine, Philo Vance, etc.). Since it's been done, by itself it's not a theme worthy of the challenge, so I put a twist to it -- one day of a series and the next day movies made by stars of the television incarnation of that series.


Having the stars be a theme let me do some mildly wild things, like having Bride of the Gorilla and Touch of Evil or The Old Dark House and Breakfast at Tiffany's on the same day (I really, really like being perverse).


Silent Sunday's Siegfried's Death is special because it's Fritz Lang before Metropolis.


Victor Sjostrom is vastly underrated. I wanted to show one with him as an actor and one as director, but the times didn't fit to show him at his best, so here he's an actor and on Thursday morning he's a director (He Who Gets Slapped). (I know I'm technically misspelling his name and the titles of his movies, but I'm not sure that using extended characters isn't part of the old problem of challenge pages not loading properly, so I erred on the side of caution.)


Monday night's theme came about because in fiddling with the database, I wound up with a page that had both The Trouble with Harry and Diabolique. I felt it was fated that I figure out how to show them together.


My first food night -- I'm not a big fan of modern movies. Anything made after 1960 usually leaves me cold. This night has five exceptions to that rule. None of them pay attention to the government's food pyramid or recommended daily allowances; they celebrate food's non-nutritional goodness.


For Richard Chamberlain, I wanted to show The Madwoman of Chaillot, but I understand there's some rights issue keeping it out of circulation. I don't feel I was settling for second best with Twilight of Honor with Claude Rains.


Humpday Horror came about because I love Cat People and happened to see The Haunted Mouse in a list of short films. I originally intended it to be a night of cats, but something just didn't feel right about what I came up with, so I deleted that and went with classic horror.


The birthday tributes stem from the fact that I've been on a Toshiro Mifune kick for a couple of years, so I wanted to share some of his lesser-known movies. Since his birthday is April first, it seemed a natural time to showcase him then, and I thought to do a whole day of other stars having that somewhat-odd birthday.


The five extra premieres from a preferred studio was a godsend (thanks lzcutter!) because it let me put in Ellery Queen with Ralph Bellamy and Margaret Lindsay, one of my favorite series.


The food chain revisited -- as soon as I saw the challenge theme of Food, Glorious Food, the first thing that popped into my head was Little Shop of Horrors. Sweeny Todd was close on its heels. Filling out the evening with people-as-food was the easiest to schedule. The only problem was that Soylent Green is an obvious, and much-loved, choice, but I couldn't fiddle the times to accommodate it without using a third-rate short movie.


Saturday night might seem like a rip-off of this month's Soviet theme, but it's actually more of a counterpoint. When I first saw TCM's schedule, I loved it (naturally) but it also saddened me because some of my favorite 'Russian' movies were absent. I'm really rather surprised that Anastasia has never been an Essential.


Overall, this was weird because I've been jotting down ideas for months, but the only ones I ended up using were 'series' and 'tv stars in real movies,' and I had to combine those two to make it legitimate.

One reason I finished quickly is that I've been spending a lot of time lately combining some older databases to make a single decent database to use for future challenges, so I've gone through the complete list of movies in each library several times looking for duplicates. While I probably couldn't name more than a few dozen off the top of my head, they are apparently in my subconscious and surfaced when I needed them.


Another factor is that I use a CAD program for arranging and rearranging movies according to length, which speeds things up a lot compared to pencil and paper and many, many erasers. If anyone wants to check for overlaps or wrong starting times, you can look at:



Also, because of my insomnia, I was able to pull some long hours.


In addition, I was quite motivated to be the first to post a schedule because my food themes seem quite obvious to me, and I didn't want to have to start over on them from scratch because someone beat me to it.


According to rough time-keeping, this schedule me took about 46 hours.

Congratulations on being the first to post. Impressive schedule! You've got some very good films in there!


As for the Now Playing Guide cover, I'll let you and Filmlover work that one out.


*SanFin asked:*

*Do we have to make a poster?*


No, it's optional. Usually at the end of the Challenge, Filmlover - a regular poster here and frequent Challenge player- creates mock-ups of the Now Playing guide with each Challengers SOTM on the cover.


Capuchin got the jump on him this time. The Challenge is tough enough without asking participants to have a high level of Photoshop skills to boot.

No -- it's just that when I begin to get a little burnt out using a CAD program, I switch to an image processor to relax.


As lzcutter said, usually Filmlover does them at the end of the challenge, and I'm curious how his might be different.


Hope you're having fun with your schedule!

I just did it to relax a bit. It'll be interesting to see what he comes up with!

Oh, and I use Gimp, not Photoshop. (smiley)

Well, I take it with grace and as you know the sincerest form of flattery...


But my lawyer will be in touch with your lawyer.


(Of course, you do realize by doing that cover, I'll have to relegate the one I do for yours to The Bride of the Gorilla.)

I'm afraid my attorney is in jail, and his attorney is under indictment, so it'll have to be my lawyer's lawyer's lawyer.

Squinch your eyes a bit, and it already could be . . .

"A Classic Relationship Told Through Titles"

When *Boy Meets Girl* it might lead to *A Kiss in the Dark* and they could have *One Romantic Night*

If *He Stayed for Breakfast* it was shocking *And So They Were Married* to avoid scandal.

*Wedding Bills* were the start of their problems.

Soon she find flaws in him and had to say *I Love My Husband, But!*

Husbands think *I Love My Wife, But!* *I Married a Witch* when he felt like *The Henpecked Duck* and tells his flirting wife *You're Too Careless with Your Kisses*

An attorney says he is one of those *Innocent Husbands* when in court for *The Divorce of Lady X*

Inlaws might want everyone to *Hiss and Make Up* even when *The Ex-Mrs. Bradford* was still making his life miserable.

No matter how bad it was, he will always be tempted when she whispers in his ear: *Marry Me Again.*

Your schedule is very good! Thank you for joining in so soon after coming to the message boards. One thing, you need to declare your "Preferred Studio" (the studio that your five extra premieres came from) in your notes.


You can do that by going to your post and clicking Edit. That will open your post back up, allow you to include this information and then just hit "send" and it will re-post. *You have 24 hours from the time you originally posted to make that change.*


After that, because of the rules of this message board, you won't be able to edit your post.

Hey guys,


We have two very good schedules posted!! And I'm looking forward to more. Tired of shoveling snow? Tired of doing the weekend chores? Tired of wishing for spring?


Take a break from all that and join the TCM Programming Challenge. It will get your mind off the weather and the chores in no time!

> Capuchin----awesome schedule!! I love you for programming "Babette's Feast"---one of the best foreign films ever. And Toshiro Mifune?! What a clever and worthy choice! Awesome!




One of the reasons I pushed myself to finish quickly was that I wanted to use *Babette's Feast* and *Nine 1/2 Weeks* and *A Feast at Midnight* but I was afraid they are so obvious for a Food theme that everyone would schedule them, and my entry would look like I was copying.


As regards Toshiro Mifune -- while TCM deserves kudos for their SOTMs, they're always rather mainstream choices. I'd like to see something other than the standard Hollywood type.


Hope your schedule is coming along well!

SansFin --

Great schedule!


I admit I was a little lost on your Sunday daytime schedule before I read your programming notes and saw the progression.


I laughed at *Speaking of Ex-Wives* leading off with *The Devil's Daughter.* Your other themes ranged from cute to inspired. I'd love that Saturday!


The way you worked in so many shorts is nice. I try to put some in mine, but they're so problematic.


You'll probably take some heat for scheduling *Chocolat* because it's so very new. I agree it's a great movie and rightly deserves to be called a classic, but some people in this forum are very touchy about dates.


I'm tempted to say it's a great first effort, but I don't think it needs that qualification -- it's a great schedule by any measure!

Well, a week and a half has gone by and we have some Challengers who have already posted schedules.


There is still plenty of time to put down that snow shovel or sun-tan lotion (depending where in the country you live) and be part of the 15th TCM Programming Challenge.


It's your chance to get your dream schedule on the record.


Why wait any longer?

Trying to decide who should be your Star of the Month?



Wondering who has been Star of the Month before? The good news is that TCM seems to be spotlighting some of the stars from their early years before many of us were watching. So, it's okay to use a previous SOTM if you feel strongly that he or she deserves a second spotlight.


Of course, if you want to spotlight someone who has yet to be a SOTM, that's fine, too.
