COME NEXT SPRING is available at Netflix streaming. Of course, THE CAT AND THE CANARY is on DVD, released by Paramount. And so is SIX OF A KIND.

 

But yeah, most of these titles are in the vaults. Bring them back into circulation! On TCM, please!

Well, as of right now, *Jane Eyre* (1943) is unofficially on the schedule in January, and I just asked for my reminder. Fingers, toes, and eyes crossed.

 

Thanks, TCM!

I know what you think I'm going to say, but I will surprise you. I think, instead of listing, mountainosu waves of movies, I will just pick a theme for a day that I think all of us can agree would be lots of fun to watch.

 

I think that a "first movie" day would be cool, a day where TCM showed nothing but firsts of the greatest stars. Firsts are never available to rent or own (that is, usually they aren't), and people always want to see them.

 

But, who, that is the question... :)

I will pick five classic films that I feel are deserving of greater audiences:

 

1. *TRACK OF THE CAT (1952)*...outstanding cast includes Robert Mitchum, Teresa Wright and Beulah Bondi. Director William Wellman's sparse use of color is, in a word, masterful, and so is the painstaking mise en scene.

 

2. *FOUR FRIGHTENED PEOPLE (1934)*...this is probably Cecil B. DeMille's least known sound film and it stars my favorite actress Claudette Colbert. Costar Herbert Marshall gives a warm performance as her tortured love interest, and Mary Boland carries a dog around throughout the entire picture and steals every scene she's in! Universal has restored the print, and it is sumptuous!

 

3. *HOUSE BY THE RIVER (1950)*...I think Fritz Lang's stylish Victorian thriller would excite modern viewers and give people a lot to talk about! The similarities between this film and PSYCHO are too great to ignore!

 

4. *HEARTBEAT (1946)*...Ginger Rogers is excellent as a street waif that Basil Rathbone trains to pick the pockets of high society (her first 'victim' is a very cagey Adolphe Menjou). Along the way she falls for Jean-Pierre Aumont. This one combines Oliver Twist with Pygmalion and Cinderella. Great cast makes director Sam Wood's remake of a French hit work perfectly. I think it would entertain a lot of people and should be better known. Ginger is gorgeous in this picture!

 

5. *SIS HOPKINS (1941)*...I love Judy Canova. In this picture, she plays her usual country bumpkin character, but she goes uptown to stay with some snooty relatives. Her haughty cousin is played by Susan Hayward. You can imagine the culture clash...and the laughs! And the music is very good. Very entertaining!

Just for starters, how about the fully restored *WINGS* which is pretty much ready to go, including a new recording of the original 1927 score with live orchestra. But will it be shown on TCM in February in it's restored state? The fully restored *THE BIG PARADE,* which I have been waiting to premiere for 8 years now. Some Colleen Moore silent features.Starting with *HER WILD OAT,* and *LILAC TIME.*

 

Also during *31 Days of Oscar,* debutes of *SEVENTH HEAVEN (1927), UNDERWORLD (1927), THE LAST COMMAND (1928),* and *THE COP (1928).* If at all possible, *THE PATENT LEATHER KID (1927)* as well. All of these would be new to TCM.

I agree!

I admit that when TCM ran a bunch of Miyazaki movies a few years ago I wasn't expecting much, in fact almost didn't even tune in to any of them (being mostly into the older stuff I wasn't even familiar with his work). But I did happen to be watching when TCM showed SPIRITED AWAY (I believe the first one they ran) and was absolutely charmed and extremely impressed, as I continued to be for every one of the rest of the Miyazaki films.

 

So I'd be delighted to see them shown again.

I absolutely agree!

 

 

Unfortunately many of those ladies' films are hard to find in decent condition, so showings on TCM are wishful thinking....but HERE'S WISHING!!!

Someone will have to dig this thread up every few months next year to see whose wishes are coming true!

 

And at the end of 2012, we can give a special prize to the person who had the most 'wish' films scheduled on TCM! LOL Of course by then we will be too busy looking at the March 2013 offerings and making new wishes!
