The 21st Unofficial TCM Programming Challenge: Revising the Oscars

Recommended Posts

Now to explain my programming. Sunday marks the birthday of Immanuel Kant, so we start with two movies about particularly rigorous examples of moral duty. It's also Nabokov's birthday, so we have Lolita. The McCarthy-Army hearings started this day, so we have Joseph Welch's one film role, plus a movie about actual witchhunts. Then we celebrate Earth Day with three movies involving the environment, ending with Chinatown, which conveniently coincidies with Jack Nicholson's birthday. In a coincidence that no doubt annoyed Nabokov to no end, it's also Lenin's birthday. Instead of the expected Eisenstein, we have a premiere for Pudovkin. And for the foreign film Sunday we have two movies that touch upon spring, if not arguably summer. Monday we have four films in honor of Simone Simon, whose birthday it is. It's also the birthday of Prokofiev and producer Ronald Neame, so we have films where they contributed. Monday also marks the anniversary of the last attempted coup in France, with generals trying to prevent Algerian independence, so we have The Day of the Jackal, which present a fictional aftermath. Shakespeare gets celebrated with a foreign language version of Macbeth. Then we celebrate birthday director Frank Borzage with five films, interrupting him only with a premiere for Michael Moore, whose birthday this is also is.


Tuesday marks the birthday of Robert Penn Warren, so we have the film version of his most famous work. Tuesday also marks the Easter Rebellion, so we have three movies about Ireland, which all touch on the IRA. William Castle and Shirley MacClaine also get their birthdays celebrated, and then we move to star of the month Erland Josephson. Wednesday marks Italy's Liberation from Fascism, so we have a whole day dedicated to Italian movies! Thursday is the anniversary of the creation of the Gestapo, so it's nice to be reminded that Hangmen also Die. John Wilkes Booth died this day, so why not have a film by his most famous cinematic portrayer, Raoul Walsh, about another colorful murderer. We have two movies, one Russian and one American, which touch on the Chernobyl disaster which started today. Then we have four films in tribute to birthday director Douglas Sirk, followed by a tribute to three movie ladies whose birthday it is: Marianne Jean Baptiste, Joan Chen and Anita Loos.



Friday marks the birthday of Mary Wolstonecraft, the founder of modern feminism, so we have four movies about strong women. The last of the four deals with South Africa, which conveniently marks the anniversary of that country's first democratic election. Jack Klugman gets his birthday honored, and so does Anouk Aimee. We then have a special tribute to birthday director Theo Angelopoulos, who recently died. Finally for our underground feature we have one movie that is very dark and overcast and another that spends much of the time literally underground. For Saturday, we start with a movie for birthday girl Ann-Margret, and three for birthday boy Lionel Barrymore. His last movie segues into a Pacific theme for the day. Today marks the start of the Kon-Tiki expedition, as well as the Mutiny on the Bounty. So we have an exploring South Pacific theme, with Sean Connery and Michael Caine making a detour near Afghanistan (that's quite the detour). Today also marks the end of the American occupation of Japan, so we have two movies about its beginning. Another Pacific adventure from Terrence Malick is followed by my final premiere, a documentary about war crimes in Vietnam, which marks Nixon's invasion of Cambodia.



So did I miss anything? Oh right, my altenate oscars! Here they are.

I love your schedule, skimpole. You have so many wonderful movies, including some I've seen and some I'd love to see. The idea of celebrating Italy's independence from the Nazis is a great one, especially with the films you've chosen.


Hollywood hasn't often included foreign actors, directors, and behind the scenes technicians in their Oscars, but you've mentioned some very deserving candidates. We totally agree that Falconetti gave the best performance by a woman ever.


I'd love to see TCM work some of these foreign films into their schedule.


The month is only nine days old, and we already have three terrific schedules, each completely different in approach. That's what makes these challenges so much fun.

Your schedule is absolutely wonderful! :)


I agree that *The Cabinet of Dr Caligari* (1919) must be seen by all. It is on one of my drafts of a schedule for that very reason.


Peter Ustinov is a great selection for SOTM! He is in many of my favorite movies and he is always a delight.


When I saw "All that Jazz" I hoped you had chosen that movie as it is high on my list of favorites and I sometimes fear that no one else in the world knows that it exists. Even without that movie you have scheduled a great day with a mixture of movie genres and styles that is seldom seen. I believe this is the first time I have seen *Le Desordre et La Nuit* and *A Boy Named Charlie Brown* and *Goldfinger* within the same theme.


"I Am My Own Evil Twin" is inspired! :) It is a great twist on the actor-in-multiple-roles motif. Seeing themes like this is what makes the Challenges so much fun to read.


I agree completely with you Oscar corrections. All of those stars deserved recognition they did not receive.


I hope you will understand that my praise for your excellent work contains a touch of frustration because you have set the bar so high.

Two and a half weeks to go in our Revising the Oscars programming challenge. So far, JamesinArlington, Lonesome Polecat, and skimpole have posted three outstanding schedules. I'm looking forward to more. BetteDavis19 and aimalac are working on their very first schedules, which is great. I believe audreyforever is planning to make a "return," as Gloria Swanson says. What whimsical treats will SansFin have for us? At the last minute countessdelave will probably post one of her usual delightful programs, no doubt including some of her favorite 1930s films. Fedya usually doesn't announce in advance that he's entering; all at once an incredibly witty schedule appears as if by magic. Does filmlover have time to join us? Will the lure of revising the Oscars bring lzcutter and KyleinHollywood back in the fold?


There's still time for more newcomers or veterans to start from scratch and dazzle us (and better, the real TCM programmers) with your concoctions.

SansFin's Program Notes


Bad Doc, No Biscuit

Mad doctors are a staple of classic movies. I believe I have chosen many of the best.


Account Deceivable

Embezzlers and embezzlement.


A Rabbit of Warrens

Most of these movies have been on my list of I-wish-to-schedule-these-movies since I began entering the Challenges. I noticed a common name in their listing. The theme came from that.


Faye Dunaway Birthday Tribute

I have always loved her performances. I doubt she will be a Star of the Month because her movies are new. I wished to show some of her best.


Cat as Cat Can

I like *Rhubarb* very much as a fine little comedy.

I would have chosed another movie with the title *The Black Cat* if I had not used all my Premieres for other things.


Star of the Month: George Hamilton

I have recently read his autobiography Don't Mind if I Do and I was impressed at the casual manner in which he drifted in and out of movies.

*Act One* is the biography of Moss Hart.

*Your Cheatin' Heart* is the biography of Hank Williams.


A Fowl Day

I believe it is only fair to give birds a day since I have given cats a day.

Audrey Hepburn has a pet canary in *Paris When It Sizzles* Its name is Richelieu because she wanted a cardinal.

There are ravens in *Sherlock Holmes Faces Death* and *Ellery Queen, Master Detective* and *The Raven*

There is a talking blackbird in *Find the Blackmailer*


Guest Programmer

I chose two of my favorite movies and two of my favorite exceptionally long movies because we are allowed only four movies and I needed to fill the entire evening.


There is an Elephant in the Room

The theme takes artistic liberty since there are few actual scenes with an elephant in a room in these movies.


Noah Beery Birthday Tribute

Noah Beery receives only a tiny part of the recognition which Noah Beery Jr. receives. I believe these are some of his best movies. I have ended his day with comedy.


A Fishy Story

Most of these are adventures. I have been able to end this day with comedy also.


Dying is easy. Comedy is hard.

It has long been known in the theater that drama can be learned and any person can die to great effect while comedy requires innate talent. These movies have both death and comedy.


Spineless Gits

I have covered many other animals. I thought I should give insects, plants and shapeless entities fair due.


The Should-Have-Been 1944 Oscars

I believe these are the finest works of the year.



*Act One* (1963)

Hi, kingrat, sorry to be so late to the the thread, but, unfortunately, I can't take part this time. Have one or two ideas for a schedule but personal obligations are now taking up so much of my time. I am hoping to jump into the next one, though.

Love this schedule. You started out with a great one; THE CABINET OF DR CALIGARI. George Hamilton is a fascinating SOTM. Love the movie with cats ending with TO CATCH A THIEF - brilliant. TOTORO is a fantastic movie. Totally agree with your 1944 Oscar choices. But my favorite part was "Dying is easy, comedy is hard". As a director of high school shows, let me tell you, it's true! Hilarious twist to show movies with both.


Whoa, there's an ALICE IN WONDERLAND with WC Fields and Gary Cooper? This I gotta see. And there's a French LES MIZ with Jean Gabin? TCM, please schedule them!

I thank you for your kind words.


> George Hamilton is a fascinating SOTM.


He is a fascinating actor. He built a career on his tan and easy nature. His real successes have been doing serious biographies. He is still highly regarded in the South for his portrayal of Hank Williams.


> Love the movie with cats ending with TO CATCH A THIEF - brilliant.


I was happy to include that movie as it has both human and feline cats. :)


> But my favorite part was "Dying is easy, comedy is hard". As a director of high school shows, let me tell you, it's true! Hilarious twist to show movies with both.


It is a thing I do not understand that dramas are considered more important when comedy requires much more work and talent. There is a scene in the movie: *Romantic Comedy* (1983) where a playwright explains that it take a lot of work to appear glib.


I thank you again for the kind words. I believe this is the most I have ever worked to create a schedule because I had no epiphany for an overall theme.

SansFin, I love your schedule. So many witty categories, like A Rabbit of Warrens and Spineless Gits. Great titles! TCM should follow up on some of these. A tribute to Faye Dunaway is fine with me.


You've included one French film I really want to see, *The Crime of M. Lange*, and one I saw again recently and admired even more, *Le Corbeau*.


Love your 1944 awards, especially the recognition of Jean Negulesco for *The Mask of Dimitrios*, which is brilliantly directed. Ida Lupino should have won at least a couple of Oscars.


Four great schedules, with more to come.

I'd love for Capuchin to have a schedule for us. He always does a great job.


We are heading into the home stretch of the competition, which will end at midnight Pacific time Sunday, March 4. Can't wait to see what the rest of you come up with.

I chose a week in August that features "Summer Under The Stars" because it seemed the easiest theme. Just pick a star and showcase his/her movies for the day. My "Star Of The Month" is 'Dean Martin and Jerry Lewis'. Their body of work only consists of 17 films. 16 of those films, they were a significant part of the story. One (Road To Bali) they basically just had a cameo appearance. That leaves 4 films a week for 4 weeks. The remainder of the month Dean Martin and Jerry Lewis will alternate being featured and where appropriate they will introduce the featured 'Summer Under The Stars' star with a movie they shared credits.

To begin, Sunday August 12th Dean Martin will play the role of 'Star Of The Month' and Peter Falk will be the showcased 'Summer Under The Stars' star and "Robin And The 7 Hoods" will be the movie Dean Martin and Peter Falk shared. Also Peter Falk is the new Academy Award winner for Best Supporting Actor for his role in "Pocketful Of Miracles" replacing the former winner 'George Chakiris' for "West Side Story". Peter Falk will also be the star of my 'Foreign Import' from Germany "Wings Of Desire" (1987). Silent Sunday Night will be the 1925 silent classic "Sally Of The Sawdust" with the funniest W.C. Fields.

Monday August 13th, the comedy team of "Martin & Lewis" will assume the role of 'Star Of The Month' and Janet Leigh will be the featured 'Summer Under The Stars' star and she will receive an individual introduction from both Dean and Jerry. First from them as a team in "Living It Up" then Dean will share the credits with her in "Who Was That Lady?" then Jerry will share credits with her in "Three On A Couch". Johnny Green will be the new Academy Award winner for Best Music, Scoring Of Music, Adaptation or Scoring for "Bye-Bye Birdie" replacing Andre Previn for "Irma La Douce".

Tuesday August 14th Jerry Lewis will be Serving as "SOTM" and introducing Robert DeNiro as the "SUTS' star with "The King Of Comedy".

Wednesday August 15th Dean Martin will be taking over as "SOTM" and introducing "SUTS" star Kim Novak with "Kiss Me Stupid". Also Gary Kurtz will receive the Best Picture Academy Award for "Star Wars IV - A New Hope" replacing Charles H. Joffe for "Annie Hall". George Lucas will receive the Best Director Academy Award for "Star Wars IV - A New Hope" replacing Woody Allen for "Annie Hall" and George Lucas will receive the Academy Award for Best Writting, Screenplay Written Directly For The Screen instead of Woody Allen and Marshall Brickman for "Annie Hall". I'll admit "Annie Hall" is a good movie and Woody Allen is an incredible talent, but "Annie Hall" is no "Star Wars IV - A New Hope". Also Jack Warden will receive the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor for "Heaven Can Wait" replacing Christopher Walken for "Deer Hunter".

Thursday August 16th Jerry Lewis is now "SOTM" and he introduces "SUTS" star Stubby Kaye with "Li'l Abner". Thursday evening I will serve as Guest Programmer and the four films I chose are:

Mr. Destiny (1990) with Jim Belushi and Michael Caine in a 'What would life be like if...?'

Family Man (2000) with Nicolas Cage and Tea Leoni in another 'What would life be like if...?'

The Final Countdown (1980) with Kirk Douglas and Martin Sheen in a 'What would todays world be like if...?'

Off Limits (1953) with Bob Hope and Mickey Rooney in a military comedy.

Also Dustin Hoffman is the new winner of the Best Actor Academy Award for his performance in "Midnight Cowboy" replacing John Wayne in "True Grit".

Friday August 17th Jerry Lewis is doing double work as "SOTM" again today but Tony Curtis is now the "SUTS" featured star and his introduction is Boeing (707) Boeing (707). My TCM UnderGround feature is the 1978 Ralph Bakshi animated version of the J.R.R. Tolkien classic "The Lord Of The Rings". As an added note, the movie after TCM's UnderGround feature could also be an excellent selection for TCM's UnderGround, The 1956 Edmond O'Brien, Jan Sterling, Michael Redgrave version of the George Orwell classic "1984".

Saturday August 18th has Dean Martin once again as "SOTM" and the "SUTS" star Judy Holliday. TCM Essentials is "Bells Are Ringing" and it features both the "SOTM" Dean Martin and the "SUTS" star Judy Holliday.

Timing is everything, and this challenge came at a bad time for me (I have a big deadline due March 9), so I was just going to skip it and not participate. But who could pass up such a delicious challenge as revising the Oscars? So here's a hastily put together schedule. I haven't had time to look at anyone else's schedule, and I won't be back on the boards until around March 9, but good luck to all. This challenge was really fun!

{font:Times New Roman} {font}{font:}Every movie in this schedule (except the TCM Underground feature) was mistreated somehow at Oscar time; many are snubs (no nominations at all); many others are sideswipes (almost a snub, but received one or two nominations); some are shoulda’s (where I think someone got robbed, and I say who “shoulda” gotten a nomination or award); and a couple of pictures, the also-rans, had significant nominations but won almost no awards. The movies are laid out chronologically based on year of release. My notes, provided separately, explain why every movie made the list.{font}

Not only does the entire world agree with your Oscar choices, but you scheduled tons of movies I absolutely love, including one I've always wanted to see, Whistle Down the Wind. If this was a real schedule I would plant myself in front of the TV for the entire week and not leave. Plus-- SOTM Thomas Mitchell is an absolute inspiration. He is one of the best character actors that ever graced the screen. Awesome schedule.

Here comes my schedule- FINALLY!


I don't know about everyone else, but my schedule took me about six hours to make! I hope you all like it!


And, just to warn all of you 1960s movie lovers, I only have one movie that was made after 1959. About 3/4 of my movies are from the best decade for movies- the 1930s. I also have a lot for the 1920s. I've noticed MANY 1950s movies on TCM, and not so many 1930s and earlier movies. So, here we go!

It's officials: newcomers aimalac, sunny75, and BetteDavis are rocking it out! Will comment more in detail later. Right now I'm just lovin' it.


TCM Underground should definitely take aimalac's suggestion to show the Ralph Bakshi animated *Lord of the Rings* (it covers the first one and a half books of the trilogy, ending with the battle at Helm's Deep) and the *1984* with Jan Sterling. Excellent ideas.


Sunny, I'm glad you couldn't resist. You clearly had fun. A bunch of us would love for Thelma Ritter and Judy Garland to have won Oscars for exactly those films, to go no further than that. And you get extra points for including Whistle Down the Wind, one of the great finds of the 2011 TCM Film Festival. Nominations for Best Picture, Best Director, and Best Adapted Screenplay at a minimum. Polecat, don't miss it. Surely TCM will get around to this since they showed it at the festival.


Bette, you have some soulmates on these boards for your love of 1930s films. You'll hear from them.


Our newcomers are now veterans. Great job!

Now, my main topic for my films are the 1920s and 1930s ones, as you probably have seen. They usually get unnoticed because: the quality, the sound, the lines, and the technology. I wanted to give many of these unseen masterpieces a chance.


For the first day, I centered around that lovable dog Skippy (a.k.a Asta) for the daytime. I mean, come on, who doesn't love him? In primetime, I centered around the ever-creepy Lon Chaney. Not only are his films landmarks, but they're also really fun to watch. I also included "When The Clouds Roll By" as my silent because, not only do I think it is amazing, but there is rarely a silent on that was made before 1920. I also included "L'Inhumane" as my foreign film. I originally scheduled it as my cult film, because, it is a 1920s silent sci-fi that is really good. Sci-fis were SUPER rare in the 1920s.


For the second day, I centered around early Hitchcock for the daytime, because I thought that it would be fun to watch the movies slowly get better and better and better throughout the day. And, I love Hitchcock! For the primetime, I centered around late-20s musicals. I am a HUGE fan of early musicals, and they are so often overlooked. They are also really entertaining!


For the third day, I centered around the too-too elegant world of art deco. i am a huge fan of art deco, and i really enjoy films about it. For primetime, I did my four oscar selections, and then went on to celebrate the birthday of Buddy Ebsen. For my first oscar, I gave it to Bette Davis for Of Human Bondage. Almost any classic movie fan knows about this, and everyobe agrees that Bette should have won. But, for some reason, she wasn't even nominated! ARG! I next gave one to Gold Diggers of 1933 for its amazing music (which I play to no end on iTunes!). I gave my third Oscar to Dwight Frye in Darcula. I know that this may be a little surprising, but Dwight Frye is an amazing actor that never got a chance. His performance in Dracula is actually really frightening, and even most today would agree that he gives a chilling performance as one of Dracula's insane minions, My last Oscar, I gave to Footlight Parade for its beautiful Bubsy Berkeley choreography.


For the fourth day, I centered around early color movies. I personally really enjoy early color movies, they are really fascinating. For primetime, I celebrated Leslie Howard's birthday with my favorite movies of his.


For the fifth day, it is time for my SOTM! On her birthday, my cousin - Bette Davis! I know she has been SOTM twice before, so, to change it up, I focused on her movies that no one has seen, instead oof the well-known ones on DVD. Plus, I really wanted to see her early movies that aren't available anywhere.


For the sixth day, I did, what I'm sure you have all wanted to see, STAR'S FIRSTS. Unless their first movie is widely available on DVD (very unlikely), firsts are never seen, but, they are always wanted to be seen.


For my last day, I did early sci-fis all day, because, I love 1940s and 1950s sci-fi, so, even earlier sounds like even more fun! I also included the incomporable "42nd Street" for my Essentials, and, the freaky "The Man Who Laughs" as my cult.


I hope you all like my schedule!
