As I won the last Challenge, I have the honor of hosting this one. It also means that I have added my own requirements-it's one of the perks of being the host. Being host is the first time for me. Please be patient. I am very fortunate to have many former hosts who either watch or will enter this Challenge. They are so helpful to a newbie.


All of the previous Challenges and this one are *not sponsored* by TCM. The first Challenge was created by a message board poster, Path40a. Path40a wanted to find a way to let participants create a week of programming for TCM, incorporating many of the rules and restrictions employed by the real TCM programming staff.


The basic idea is to create a week's schedule for TCM, following the rules and requirements. When the Challenge is over, I will start a new thread, reposting the entrants' schedules and notes. This will be a voting thread and anyone who has registered as a member of the messages boards by *September 15, 2010*, may vote for his or her favorite schedule. Anyone who registers with TCM, may enter the actual Challenge, regardless of their registration date. I encourage participation from anyone who wants to try it for the first time and from those who've entered previous Challenges. But please: only one schedule per entrant.


The winner of this Challenge gets to host the 18th TCM Programming Challenge. There is no official "prize" for winning this Challenge but, as host, you set the time frame and special requirements. Many of us have been gratified to see some of our suggestions show up on TCM. We know that TCMProgrammr, from the programming staff, looks in occasionally.


Here we go!




*This Challenge will run October 15, 2010 to November 21, 2010. All schedules must be posted by Midnight, November 21 PST.*


There are two special components to this Challenge. I'll start with those.


*Vogue has their Fall Fashion Issue and we have the Fall Fashion Challenge.*

Fashion and costume design is a huge, integral element of film. Can you imagine Vivian Leigh without her curtain dress in Gone With The Wind ? Or Rita Hayworth without her strapless black satin gown in Gilda ? Even seemingly modest films are affected/influenced by fashion and costuming and what is appropriate for a character, era, etcetera. Characters that come to mind, for me, are Bette Davis's "Charlotte" in Now Voyager or Clark Gable's "Peter Warne" in It Happened One Night. The costuming helped define the characters. Hollywood films had a tremendous influence on fashion. Paris was no longer the only perpetrator of all major fashion trends. Even the above-mentioned GWTW, created a trend in hair snoods in 1939 and into the 40s.


*1) You are to devote at least one evening's (minimum four films) programming to the subject of fashion, style, or fashion accessories* (some may argue with me but I do not consider Winchester 73 to constitute a fashion accessory). The programming can encompass many aspects: spotlight on a designer, an era of fashion, great jewelry in film, fashion icons such as Audrey Hepburn, the fashion industry. You choose but remember that it isn't enough to have an item of apparel in the title. Any film you choose must have something to do with fashion or be a plot device. Example: Jean Arthur has a fur coat land on her head in Easy Living. This starts off an entire chain of events. Please make sure to include notes about how you came up with your programming for this part of the Challenge.


*We all know that the 2011 TCM Film Festival is being planned right now (April 28-May 1)*. I expect that we will hear a few details within the duration of this Challenge. During the last Challenge, Kingrat included a wishlist of films in his schedule. I thought it would be fun for participants in this one to create their own "dream" film screenings or panel discussions. You may post an idea that thrills the Festival Programmers and the Head of Talent at TCM. There are many ideas that have already been posted on the Festival threads but here's one more place to post yours.


*2) You are to schedule two different films for the Festival.* There are no restrictions as to libraries used, as this is not part of your regular week's schedule. List the films, and any guests to be interviewed or any special aspect (ie. appearance of the Water Lillies water ballet troupe at the Neptune's Daughter poolside screening). You might want to explore the Festival link on the TCM website. You may use the following venues for your screenings: Grauman's, Egyptian, two different Mann's theatres or the Hollywood Roosevelt poolside.


*OR You may create two different panel discussion groups.* Create the topic (related to film) and the guest panelists. Remember that these panel discussions are held in a separate venue that has seating for about 100 people.


Please make sure that all of your guests are living at the time you post your schedule.



Your week starts at 6am ET on Sunday and ends on the following Sunday at 5:59 am ET. This means that your first film programmed begins right at 6 AM Sunday.



Each programming day begins approximately at 6am ET



One night a block of at least four films must be devoted to a Star Of The Month. Be sure the person you select has enough movies to schedule over a four week period.



All other evenings are themes of your choosing. Daytime themes are encouraged. Once you've chosen your week, check what stars were born then. Maybe it's the anniversary of a historical event, or the anniversary of a classic film's release. As programmer, you can decide!



Feature films generally start on the top, quarter, bottom, three-quarters of the hour. Primetime features start at 8pm ET. Please allow enough time on your evening schedule to allow for intros and outtros for each film.



Try not to leave more than 15 minute gaps between the end of one film and the beginning of the next, lest your audience grow bored. You are not required to but feel free to include short films, featurettes, trailers, etc. in your schedule.


If you want, you can include new interviews for Private Screenings or new documentaries from TCM Original Productions.



Please program the regular TCM features in your schedule. "Silent Sunday Nights" begins around midnight Sunday and is followed by "TCM Imports." "TCM Underground" starts about 2am ET on Friday. Those start times can be flexible. Saturday's "The Essentials" must start at 8pm ET.



Please include some notes on your schedule. We are interested to know why you picked a selection and your inspirations. These are always fun to read, and they really allow us a peek at what makes you love movies. We especially will want to know why you scheduled what you did for the "special" requirements.



This challenge will allow for *14 premieres* but *one* may be outside any of the listed libraries.


Remember, films used for Silent Sundays, TCM Imports and TCM Underground don't count towards your premiere even if they haven't appeared on TCM in the past.


A premiere is classified as any movie not available through the core libraries (the original TCM Library- see below) which has also not been previously shown on TCM.



You have unlimited access and use of the titles in the Original Turner Library.

Films from the original TCM Library are all RKO, pre-1948 Warner Brothers, pre-1986 MGM films. They do not count toward your Premieres - even if you can not verify they appeared on TCM in the past.



You may also use films in the Public Domain without counting against your premieres regardless of the studio that released them. Because Wikipedia's Public Domain entry is riddled with inaccuracies, for the purposes of determining what is and isn't in the public domain we will be using the movies and shorts included in the Prelinger Archives, which is devoted to presenting these films free on the internet. (As a bonus, you can watch all of them online to see if they fit your needs). The link is listed with the libraries below. Please mark these films "p/d" on your schedule.


Public Domain list: http://www.archive.org/details/feature_films



The film libraries (with hyperlinks) that make up the original TCM Film Library for use in this Challenge are:


Warner Bros (pre-1948 only): http://www.imdb.com/company/co0026840/


MGM (pre-1986): http://www.imdb.com/company/co0020206/


RKO (all): http://www.imdb.com/company/co0041421/


The films from these other Studio Libraries can be used if they have previously aired on TCM, otherwise they have to be premieres. I have added British Gaumont to the list of libraries:


Columbia Pictures (all) http://www.imdb.com/company/co0071509/


United Artists (after 1950): http://www.imdb.com/company/co0026841/


Samuel Goldwyn (all): http://www.imdb.com/company/co0016710/


J. Arthur Rank Film Distributors gb: http://www.imdb.com/company/co0027356/


Walt Disney (Live Action only): http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Disney_live_action_films


20th Century Fox:



Paramount Pictures:



Universal Pictures:



British Gaumont Pictures:




As always, you are free to program any film that has already been presented on TCM regardless of library affiliation. This should be designated with a "p/s" symbol (designating "previously scheduled").


The way to see if a movie has been previously screened is to go to the homepage and search the "Site." If TCM has played the film before, you will find programming listings, notes, or stories. DON'T search "Database" -- that includes all movies. Search "Site."


If you search a title by using the database for this purpose, if the word Articles (on the left-hand side of the column) is in bold that means an article was written either for the website or the "Now Playing" guide and the film has aired on TCM in the past. This method is not 100% accurate, it has a small window for error. So if in doubt, verify using the first method.



You can find running times for your film selections by using IMDB.com or right here on the TCM website. If using TCM.com, go to the homepage and search "Database" for the film title you need.



Format your listing by showing the time it shows, name of the film, year it was produced, star(s), and/or director, studio, running time, premiere or previously scheduled. I recommend but do not require that the title of each film be put in bold as it makes it easier for posters to read.


The most important thing is:

PLEASE POST YOUR SCHEDULES AND NOTES IN A SIMPLE TEXT FORMAT DOCUMENT OR COPY YOUR SCHEDULE FROM ONE. Please refrain from using smilies, emoticons or triple exclamation points IN YOUR SCHEDULES AND NOTES. The use of three exclamation points together for some unknown reason causes Jive Software that runs this message board to try and post in an image. The use of emoticons in long posts such as the schedules and notes really confuses the Jive Software when it comes to opening this thread and the Vote thread.

At the conclusion of the contest a separate thread will be opened for voting. Any member of the TCM.com community may vote, whether you have entered a Challenge or not. You must have registered as a member of TCM.com by midnight September 15th, 2010 to vote.


In the event of a tie, the moderator will cast the deciding vote.


My thanks to LZCutter and those who have moderated the previous sixteen Challenges. I have copied much of your text in these rules and I appreciate the work that was done before me.


Please either post a message on this thread or send me a private message if you have any questions. I can't wait to see the fabulous, forthcoming schedules. I do encourage newcomers to join.

Countess, we should have known you'd choose fashion for our challenge! You should get some fun responses. Hollywood has given us plenty of material, from the chic to the "I can't believe they did that."


So glad you liked my 2011 festival wishlist from the last challenge. This is an enjoyable way to make some suggestions for the good people at TCM. For anyone confused about the venues mentioned, the Countess has listed the possible screening locations from largest to smallest.


I want to encourage newcomers to participate. It's fun, you learn more about the movies, you appreciate what the TCM programmers have to do, and you just might see some of your suggestions appear in future months.

I'm already compiling my programming!!!


But I was wondering--- is the TCM Film Festival WIshlist separate from the programming, or do you want us to use part of the week? I'm pretty sure it's separate but I wanted to make sure.


Had some questions about fashion but I'll be PM-ing because I don't want to give away my ideas. :)


Everyone should participate. Can't wait to see what we all come up with!

Ha HA! Is there "extra credit" for using *Fig Leaves* in the fashion AND Film Festival requirements?




The TCM Book Corner has a blurb about a new book on the role of Costume Designers which may be helpful to all the Challengers.



And here's my contribution to the inspirational cause...

What a great sketch from the talented Mr. Walter Plunkett! Thanks for posting that and the Fig Leaves lobby card.


Now you know, Kyle, that I must be impartial even though I'm dying to see Fig Leaves at the Festival. What you should do is make sure that Gagman sees your schedule, so you'll get his vote.


Actually, there is nothing wrong with using the same film in your schedule and using it as one of your Festival programs. They _are_ two separate parts of this challenge. But no, you don't get extra credit and you might have your friends on the boards thinking you've lost your creative touch.

I misplaced that long ago.


Glad you like the Plunkett sketch. It is unknown what film it was for.

Just to chime in (and bump the thread) -- SansFin and I are both planning to enter. It looks like a great challenge. In fact, it's so great it's giving me a headache (being a man, fashion isn't exactly my forte).


I freely admit I've been sort of cheating. For a while now, I've been working on an idea for an overall theme for the week, and have been writing macros for my database. I just ran them, and I think they've identified most of the movies I'll use (except those for that pesky fashion theme -- I definitely need an epiphany for that).


SansFin is excited about the theme (I sent her the post about it). She's not able to post right now -- she was getting in my hair so I sent her home to her mother. Her internet access there is virtually nonexistent. Rest assured she'll be back in time to enter.


Great challenge, countessdelave!

Capuchin's Programming Notes:


TCM Goes Green -- Reduce, Reuse, Remake, Recycle


I sometimes like to watch movies made different ways, whether for a new generation, or to take advantage of changing technology (sound, color, etc.), or whatever. I've just discovered that there was a recent thread about remakes, so it might look like I'm ripping off the idea, but I mentioned that it's something I'd like to see TCM do regularly in a post in 2008 (forums.tcm.com/jive/tcm/thread.jspa?messageID=8114442? (not done as a clickable url so it won't make this thread hard to open)).


For this schedule, I've just upped it a notch. (smiley)


I actually prefer the 1931 (pre-code) version of *The Maltese Falcon* to Bogie's. This is a chance for everyone to compare them side-by-side.


My Star of the Month is Frank McHugh. He was on my short list anyway, and when I found he was in both the original and the remake of two movies, it kind of clinched the deal.


*Cleopatra* really shows how the same material, in different hands, in succeeding years, becomes totally different.


Reducing Testosterone Levels was just a bit of fun.


Friday's Frankenstein movies lapsing into *Pygmalion* may seem odd, but I see them as the same theme -- creating a monster and then not being able to control it.


For me, there's no greater fashion accessory for a fiend than a cape he can draw up to cover all but his eyes so he seems even more sinister, or to raise all the way to hide behind as he turns to flee. *Jekyll and Hyde... Together Again* is one of those movies you have to see to believe, and even then you're not sure. *Chehre Pe Chehra* is the Bollywood version of Jekyll and Hyde.



La Esmeralda

Alas and Alack

A Tale Of Two Cities


Ladies of Leisure


Premiere Outside Normal Studios:

Chehre Pe Chehra


My festival wishlist may appear to be about racism, but I actually chose these two because, out of the long list of movies I'd like to see on the big screen again, these had the best presenters available. Robin Swicord is an Oscar-winning screenwriter, and I'm sure she has a rich knowledge of her father-in-law's films. And who wouldn't love to see Sidney Poitier and hear him talk about his work?

Capuchin-great job!


You made this schedule in record time. You have some wonderful themes and films and a very surprising fashion theme, using the iconic cape. Your schedule really does justice to that idea of remakes.


Thanks for a fine schedule and for being the first one posted.

countessdelave -- Thanks! According to my computer log, it took 21 hours, 26 minutes, 17.4444 seconds to do all the selection, arranging, etc. Of course, that's on top of untold hours writing macros for which I have other uses but were needed for sorting out the appropriate titles.


LonesomePolecat -- Thanks, too! Actually, I used about a third of the movies which either share a name with or are marked as remakes in my database. I'm kind of torn as to whether it's pathetic -- some stories are best remade every generation because social changes can cast a new spotlight on certain subtle aspects. What galls me to no end is that I know there were other remakes of some great movies, but I can't find references to them anywhere.


Also, there are many movies I wanted to use, but they and their remakes add up to times I simply couldn't fit in. As hard as it is to put movies ranging from 60 to 120 minutes into a day's schedule, it's worlds' more difficult for blocks of 135 to 315.


Side Note: I wish all the other entrants good luck, and I'll be reading all the schedules. Unfortunately, I've promised something will be finished before the end of the year (and taken an advance for it), and I was far behind even before this little vacation. I seriously doubt I'll find even a few spare moments to comment on each one. Considering the (lack of) widespread enthusiasm for my schedule, I'm sure many of you will be glad to hear that SansFin is due to meet me in about an hour, and we'll be coming home together. She might sleep for a week, but after that she'll be all yours again. She said she has a schedule coming together, and all she needs is 11 more ideas for day and evening themes.

I believe Capuchin made a very nice schedule. It is over-the-top with remakes but I know of great differences between versions I have seen and would very much like to see this on TCM sometimes for movies where I know of only one version.


Thank you for making a great challenge Countess! I only have two days and one evening to do and then checking all of it before I can post mine.

Gee. And I thought I was so smart using a mechanical pencil on grid paper when doing Challenge Schedules.


Seriously, I am stunned at the intricate planning and execution that you put into this week of recyled material. What a feat. Thats something I couldn't have accomplished. Congratulations on pulling it off so well.

Capuchin is very much the engineer and is most comfortable using computers to arrange things. It took less than ten minutes for him to teach me how to use CAD program to make schedules. You make a line which is as long in inches as movie is long in minutes and put text onto line. You make those into a 'block' so it moves together. Then you click on it and drag it where you want on grid. It is great for seeing how much time is left to fill in and it is easy to pull one movie out of line and put in another of different length.


I do not think I could ever do schedule if he had not shown me that.

SansFins' Challenge Schedule Program Notes


*Beauty And The Beast* (1946) I had never heard of Josette Day before TCM showed this movie. She is captivating.


*Knight Without Armour* (1937) A wonderful Marlene Dietrich movie.


Some Days it is Just One Thing After Another All Day Long

In Hot Topics forum is a thread for people to put together unrelated movie titles and create fanciful descriptions of resulting movie. It is great fun to read. I can not think of witty descriptions but with database I can string together many titles. I like this string because it ends with *Murder on a Honeymoon* (1935) with great pairing of Edna May Oliver and James Gleason.


I do not think FrankGrimes would ever forgive me if I made a schedule without *Scarlet Street* (1945).


*The Snow Queen* (1957) is a wonderful and endearing movie.


Laraine Day worked with all the top male stars of her day. It is time she was honored.
