Betty White

I realize that Betty isn't classic movie material but is rather a queen in classic TV. She turns 90 tomorrow and I wonder if you guys and the TCM programmers would consider her for a guest programmer spot. I for one would be interested in her picks! What do you think?

Betty White had a good supporting role in *Advise and Consent* (1962) but didn't return to films until the late 90s when she played old ladies in a few films.

Betty grew up in Los Angeles (you can see where she lived in 1930 by checking http://allanellenberger.com/book-flm-news/betty-white-in-the-1930-census), and in one of her books, she writes that her Hollywood idol was, of all people, Jeanette MacDonald! (I'm guessing that was from Jeanette's mid- to late-thirties MGM period, not her Paramount-Lubitsch "lingerie queen" days.) Betty, with her splendid comedic sense, would make a great guest programmer, and I wonder what films she would choose.

I was watching the tribute show to her on Saturday night (I think it was repeated from earlier in the week)

it was on the american network (I am in Canada)

I believe it was meant to be a 2 hour show but at 9 pm just when the cast of Hot in Cleveland were up on the stage it ended POOF and another show started

that was so rude
