[b]TCM Programming Challenge #15: Band of Challengers[/b]


Recommended Posts

We are down to the last week of this Challenge!

 

I've received a notices from a couple of people still working away.

 

In going back through the two threads to see if everyone was accounted for I found this from HGL:

 

*I am also looking forward to this with great excitement.* :)

 

*(Hope I've time to make a schedule this time!)*

 

And I was wondering if she was still planning on participating?

 

Again, one last reminder for those still out there:

 

In your notes, be sure to declare your preferred studio and please remember no emoticons or triple exclamation points in your Notes section, please.

Notes: Even though it took long enough, I got in my schedule before the deadline and I hoped most of you will be pleased. I got a lot of rare finds through the TCM Library that are fun and entertaining. Sunday morning we start off with a fun little subject: Cupid. I picked three movies that will get you in the mood for love. Then the spotlight goes to one of those great actors- Henry Fonda. I pick a handful of his earlier, lesser known work. On May 16th, the anniversary of the first AA ceremony is the spotlight, so I picked two movies that dealt with movies and making them. Silent Sunday Night and TCM Imports are as usual. Monday morning starts off with a smash: a birthday tribute to Maureen O?Sullivan. I am enamored with her sweet acting ability, and I?ve picked 5 of her MGM gems in which she worked with other big contract stars of the time. Movies with screen tests in them are generally fun, so I chose 5 fun movies from decades all over. Last April I loved that RTCM had Fan Programmers on, so I decided to take the Guest Programmer idea and make it a Fan Programmer evening. The 5 movies there are my absolute favorites of all-time. Tuesday is filled with B-movies fun. We start off with juvenile stars, hit the pool with Esther, and end with the popular I Married a Witch. My SOTM choice is an odd, but fun one, Jimmy Durante. Wednesday is delicious, with so many treats on the menu. I cover breakfast, beverages, candy, and movies with food in the title. 8:00 has maybe the best example of food in the movies- the 1933 short subject, Menu. Over the last few months TCM has made a couple of ?A Night at the Movies? documentaries, so my TCM Spotlight for the month is the wild world of westerns. Somehow I started off with Rio on Friday and ended in Dr. Kildare?s hospital, but don?t worry, everything that day is pleasurable! Friday night we have rounded up a few movies that feature people from the Wizard of Oz in its cast. Moon Over Miami is a favorite of mine, and sure is amusing and colorful! I pay tribute to Vincent Price for TCM Underground. Saturday we start off with pre codes from early WB?s, and all have a slice of crime within the movie. Then comes the TCM Serial, Captain Marvel! I?ve heard a lot of good things, so I?m giving the people what they want. One of the great actors, Laurence Olivier is represented on his birthday with some of his films. The Great Ziegfeld, another of my favorites gets the Essential spot or it expansive and landmark techniques of music in film. The rest of the night is filled up with musical revues. I hope everyone enjoys my schedule and be sure for a good competition if I happen to get your vote! ;)

Dear Audrey,

 

Great job! I really like your choice of SOM: Jimmy Durante, your Silent Sunday Night with the lovely Nancy Carroll and your selection of films with screen tests. May I add one more screen test film that you might be on the lookout for? It's *Second Fiddle* with Sonja Henie and Tyrone Power. It's quite entertaining. Congratulations on a fine job!

Lzcutter,

 

I can't wait to see who is going to squeak through this weekend. I suspect Filmlover will be in there but who knows about others.

 

I would like to request that if any of the Program challengers are hoping to make it to the TCM film festival in April: please e-mail me via private message. I'm hoping to attend and I'd love to see you there.

 

Thanks,

Countess

We are down to the final weekend of the Challenge, folks!

 

I know, where has the time gone. Seems like just yesterday I was announcing the beginning of it.

 

Remaining Challengers have until Sunday night at Midnight PST (just before Sunday rolls into Monday morning) to post their schedules.

 

I have received confirmation that one more person will be posting and possibly two.

 

There are wonderful schedules already posted so this should be quite a challenge for those participating in the voting phase.

 

Speaking of voting, as always once the Challenge deadline has passed and the Challenge is officially closed, I will create a new thread complete with each schedule and accompanying notes, for Voting.

 

Congrats to all who have posted so far and Good Luck to those working to make the deadline!

Here's hoping Filmlover, HollyGoLightly and others who were going to participate squeak in before the last bell strikes.

NOTES:

 

I want to start out my notes with the ?Food , Glorious Food? section that our hostess, lzcutter, put down as a required one-night theme. You might look at the films I chose and understand right away the Last Supper is what I am referring to in King of Kings. And you are equally as clever to get stealing a loaf of bread in Les Miserables is what led to the imprisonment in the first place. And, of course, Oliver! needs no explanation. But you might ask, ?What does The Adventures of Robin Hood have to do with food?!? Well, if you think about it, it is the film that relies the most on food to keep the story moving forward. For example:

 

Robin Hood meets Sir Guy of Gisbourne in the forest when Much kills the king?s deer for food. Robin encounters Prince John and Maid Marian at a feast at the castle when he brings said deer and drops it on the table. Robin meets Friar Tuck when he steals his mutton. Marian begins to recognize Robin?s noble side at a feast in Sherwood. And on it goes.

 

?Twilight for the Gods? highlights the last film of several major movie stars.

 

?Oh, you read the fan magazines?? is from Singin? in the Rain. In the past, there were many, many different movie magazines on the newsstands. I thought it would be fun to tie a certain movie in to a magazine title.

 

Hopefully the rest of the schedule needs no explanation.
