*Programming Notes: Challenge #21*

*Week of October 14-October 20, 2012*


*Sunday*. I just love the wisecracking gal persona in film. These are some of my favorites: Ruth Donnelly, Eve Arden, Pert Kelton, and Jean Dixon.

*Sing and Like It* is a real sleeper: full of terrific character actors and funny dialogue. Pert Kelton is great in this one. Jean Dixon made a handful of memorable appearances. Her best known is *My Man Godfrey* but I didn’t want to use it here as I am using it later in the week. I recently saw *Mister Dynamite*. Both she and Edmund Lowe were good but Dixon ultimately stole the picture.




{font:Arial}The evening's theme of "Inside Milady's Jewel Box" is self explanatory but it is my hope that TCM will show *Women Love Diamonds* for Silent Sunday Nights in the next couple of years. It played in LA in the last couple of years and I'd love to see it.

Sacha Guitry's *Pearls of the Crown* is the import. I think that Guitry is a genius and deserves more play on TCM.




{font:Arial}*Monday*. "Icing the Competition" is my tribute to skating competition and women who've been competitive ice skaters. No, Joan Crawford, Lew Ayres and James Stewart are not really former skaters in *Ice Follies of 1939* but the film is full of of many wonderful professional skaters.




{font:Arial}"Fireman Save My Plot" is all about firefighters in film. *Top of the Town* has many noteworthy things in it but I picked it for this theme because it has one of the most unusual production numbers. Imagine chorus girls dressed in flannel nighties, climbing ladders and jumping into firemens’ nets below. As odd and bizarre as "Turn on the Heat" in *Sunnyside Up*.




{font:Arial}*Tuesday*. "Marie Antoinette: R.I.P." I doubt that anyone would misunderstand this theme and the programming unless they don't remember their history.




{font:Arial}SOTM is the wonderful Sylvia Sidney. I’ve chosen a selection of films based upon works by great authors. *The Searching Wind* is a terrific film. I'd love to see it on TCM someday.




{font:Arial}*Wednesday*. I wanted to do a "Little Black Book" theme. The A to Z names (all women) are spead out over three days. Like any useful black book, there are occasional comments to help the owner remember something distinctive about many of the entries.




{font:Arial}The evening is devoted to my guest programmer stint. *Laura* is a film that I love (and obviously many others do too). It seems to pop up quite frequently in these Challenges. I absolutely love *The Hard Way* and think that it is not as well known as it should be. Ida Lupino and Jack Carson are the standout performances, for me. *Escapade*. I adore William Powell and although I have seen this film in a theater, know it's rarely (if ever) on TCM. Let's show it! *Phantom of Crestwood* is a nifty little crime film-very well done. It used to be shown on TCM regularly but hasn't been on in years. *Girls About Town* may be my favorite precode EVER! I'm sorry that it doesn't appear to be included in May's SOTM Joel McCrea schedule. Hopefully another time. *Ella Cinders*. Colleen Moore: wonderful. We need more of her.





{font:Arial}*Thursday*. "Oscar Misfires". I love the film *Sabrina* (1954) but Edith Head won (and took all the credit for the Costume Design). She had nothing to do with Audrey Hepburn's fabulous confections. They were created by Hubert de Givenchy. When Head won, she did not give any acknowledgement of his work. Let's face it: the Oscar went for his work in transforming Hepburn. The winner (amongst other nominees) should have been *The Earrings of Madame De...* *The Return of Martin Guerre* (1982) was robbed. Not only was it not even nominated for Best Foreign Film but it lost Best Costume Design to *Fanny and Alexander*. Don't get me wrong: I like *Fanny and Alexander* but I saw the film in the theater and couldn't help but notice a long zipper in a closeup of the back of one of the characters. Not authentic at all. *Martin Guerre's* costumes were so authentic and distressed that you really felt like you were in the middle of a medieval village. *City Lights* (1931): no nominations at all. REALLY?! *Double or Nothing* (1936) is a short that was nominated but should have won, in my book. 1936 brought a Best Actress Oscar to Luise Rainer for *The Great Ziegfeld*. She deserved it for *The Good Earth* but not for the former. I would have been happy if the Oscar went to either Irene Dunne in *Theodora Goes Wild* or Carole Lombard in *My Man Godfrey*.




{font:Arial}One interesting thing about this Challenge was researching Oscar history. One of the things that amazed me was how many great songs were often nominated in the same year.




{font:Arial}Here's 1935:

"Cheek to Cheek" from *Top Hat* Music and Lyrics by Irving Berlin

"Lovely to Look At" from *Roberta* Music by Jerome Kern; Lyrics by Dorothy Fields and Jimmy McHugh

"Lullaby of Broadway" from *Gold Diggers of 1935* Music by Harry Warren; Lyrics by Al Dubin: the winner!




{font:Arial}*Friday*. "Elite Education" was a way for me to mix in some interesting films for TCM Underground. I've always wanted to use *Sex Kittens Go To College* and then there's *The Ivy League Killers*.




{font:Arial}*Saturday*. "All Sixes and Sevens" is obvious in its programming content. My Essential is *Seven Chances*. It's my favorite Buster Keaton film. I premiere *Seven Sinners*, a fun mystery/train film from British Gaumont.

Program Notes for Capuchin's Schedule for 16 Dec 2012 to 22 Dec 2012


Authors and Apocalypse


Everyone praises directors, but the really important ones are the authors -- it's their characters and plots which capture people's imaginations.


Most people have never heard of Vera Caspary, but they'll find her novels, stories, and screenplays were the basis of their favorite movies. Alexandre Dumas p?re created many of the world's most memorable characters, from the grandest (the Count of Monte Cristo) to the most wretched (the man in the iron mask). Noel Coward brought the classic Brit into our lives. Jules Verne took us into space and to the bottom of the ocean. And, you can't mention writers who inspired characters without including the Bard of Avon.


Mayan Apocalypse -- 21 Dec 12

Mankind's oldest story is of a great flood, so it was natural to begin a week of apocalypse movies with Deluge. Natural disasters, nuclear war, plagues, alien invasions, plant mutations, meteors . . . I think I've covered everything that can happen.


We must then (on Saturday) think of the survivors.


My Oscar picks are a little off centaur because I don't take the Oscars seriously. Dewey gave a wonderful performance, but he was snubbed by the academy just because he's metal and plastic instead of flesh and blood. How better to open a movie than tell people that politicians had finally solved the problem of urban blight? The question of which books you'd use to rebuild civilization is one worthy of contemplation. To do great things with very little, especially in costume design, deserves some kind of award. And there really should be recognition for the best monster of the year!

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.

I am conceivably the guest programmer on Sunday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Saturday{font}



{font:Arial}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.




{font:Arial}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.

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.

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.

{font:Arial}LP’s NOTES:


*50th Anniversary of 1962: A Great Year in Cinema* - I consider 1962 to be one of the greatest years in cinema. Lots of great movies, or in some cases just movies I like, all turn 50 this year. This is just a small sampling that includes one of Kurosawa’s greats, the first James Bond film, and two of my top 5 favorite movies, THE MANCHURIAN CANDIDATE and TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD.


*When Lawyers Flirt With Defendants* - These are two movies in which a lawyer falls in love with the attractive defendant, proving that lawyers are human after all. Once again , REMEMBER THE NIGHT is one of my all time favorite movies


*SILENT SUNDAY NIGHTS* - I chose one of the great silents of all time, THE CABINET OF DR CALIGARI, because everyone must see it before they die.


*TCM IMPORTS* - Okay, really, even taking great Kurosawa and Fellini films into account, I think BABETTE’S FEAST is one of the greatest foreign language films of all time and it’s about time TCM showed it. But maybe it’s just me.


*Guests at the Butler’s Ball* - About a year ago I “discovered” the classic 1970s British TV series UPSTAIRS DOWNSTAIRS. Between that and DOWNTON ABBEY, I’m ever conscious of servants in movies. Before I ignored them, rather in the way their masters did, but now I’m fascinated by their lives and daily duties. So I decided to do a tribute to my favorite cinematic butlers by inviting them to a Butler’s Ball. Although I love them all, I saved my favorite for last: Tommy Steele in the classic Disney musical, THE HAPPIEST MILLIONAIRE.


*A spy? Me?* - These are all movies in which the main character is falsely believed to be a spy. In the last three the others around them decide they are a spy, and they try to convince the others that it is not true. But in the first film, the hugely undervalued FIVE GRAVES TO CAIRO, Franchot Tone takes the identity of someone who turns out to be a spy. This is a cracking great film that should be released on DVD for Pete’s sake.


*East Meets West* - This summer I’m directing the Gershwin musical CRAZY FOR YOU, which is all about New Yorkers who come to an old Ghost Town in Dead Rock, Nevada to help cowboys put on a show. Part of the fun of the show is seeing a bunch of New Yorkers adjusting to the ways of the West. So the idea of “East Meets West” is on my mind. Therefore I scheduled a few movies with this same theme, usually a city person encountering Cowboy Country (although in the very fun CALLAWAY WENT THATAWAY the cowboy goes to the Big City). Plus, of course, some classic cowboy-related Warner Brothers and Disney shorts. I am also pleased to schedule CALAMITY JAME, which shows Doris Day playing an Annie Oakley-esque Tom Boy singing fun songs with Howard Keel. Although the reason I love this is that the theater in the movie was the inspiration for the Golden Horseshoe in Disneyland’s Frontierland. If you’ve ever been inside that theater, you watch the movie and can see it’s exactly the same.


*As Seen on MASH* - Our friends at the 4077th watch lots of classic movies to help pass the time. It’s ever so fun to watch these movies with Hawkeye and the gang, but seeing the episodes does make me want to watch the whole movie, so I scheduled them. For those of you who haven’t seen the series as recently as me, here is a summary of how each film is featured in the show. In an early episode, Frank restricts Hawkeye to quarters, so they show the nighttime feature, LEAVE HER TO HEAVEN, in the Swamp. In a later episode Colonel Potter screens his favorite movie, MY DARLING CLEMENTINE, for the 4077th who make a party out of it with singing, impressions, and their own gunfight. Finally comes the classic episode in which Hawkeye longs to see THE MOON IS BLUE when he discovers it was banned in Boston for “explicit sexual content.” (How could Hawkeye resist those words?) When he discovers the 4077th will instead receive STATE FAIR, he asks the clerk to put the film of THE MOON IS BLUE inside the STATE FAIR canister, only to realize that a visiting General had THE MOON IS BLUE sent to them (or, rather STATE FAIR switched into the MOON IS BLUE canister). At the end of the episode Hawkeye is disappointed to discover how squeaky clean THE MOON IS BLUE is, with no explicit content at all. Father Mulcahey points out, “They did say ‘virgin.’” Hawkeye angrily replies, “That’s because everyone was one!”


*SOTM Peter Ustinov* - It is my goal in life to schedule deserving SOTMs who have never been SOTM. And I can’t believe this two-time Oscar winner was never SOTM! He is an incredible actor who is a pleasure to watch. I am so pleased to schedule one of my dad’s all time favorite movies from his childhood, BLACKBEARD’S GHOST. Every Halloween he longs to see this movie, so I schedule it just for him. WE’RE NO ANGELS is a great one I saw in college in which Pete is fairly young. Had to schedule THE GREAT MUPPET CAPER (my favorite Muppet movie) in which he makes “a very brief cameo” as a truck driver. And I adore him in DEATH ON THE NILE as Hercule Poirot, a movie with a stellar cast. But I want to especially point out HOT MILLIONS. I saw it for the first time when TCM showed it in the last few months (Bob Newhart’s name on the cast list caught my eye) and my family greatly enjoyed it. In the movie Maggie Smith tells Peter Ustinov she is pregnant by saying, “I’m in the Pudding Club!” Whether or not this is a real expression is inconsequential — our family has used it rampantly ever since, so it’s a real expression now. (Perhaps our British friends could tell me if this expression does exist outside the film and my house?)


*All That Jazz, in the Background* - I love jazz, and I love films with jazz for background music. This list features music by some of the greats like Henry Mancini, Duke Ellington, Peter Nero (with the great Mel Torme singing the title song of “Sunday in New York”), and of course Charlie Brown’s personal favorite Vince Guaraldi. (Had to throw some animation in this schedule somehow). And what Jazz schedule could be complete without a Bond film like GOLDFINGER?


*A Powell Powwow* - I only recently noticed that three of the classic movie stars were named Powell, and all unrelated, too. When I realized that there was also the great director Michael Powell, I had to get these guys together.


*Happy 100th Birthday to the Great GENE KELLY* - Ladies and Gents, behold the reason I chose to do my schedule this week. I wondered who was turning 100 in 2012, so I went on Wikipedia and looked up who was born in 1912. There are a fair few classic movie actors turning 100 this year, and I almost featured them instead (as it is my other mission in life to bring character actors into the spotlight). But when I saw that this year was Gene Kelly’s centennial, I knew I couldn’t ignore it. I’m sure TCM will want to just make him SOTM for August so they can show all his films. He is one of The Greats of All Time, and one of my absolute favorites, too. Other than his first movie, his two masterpieces, and a couple other MGM musicals, I had to throw in THE THREE MUSKETEERS which shows off Gene’s amazing swashbuckling abilities. I also scheduled one of my favorite foreign films, an all jazz musical called LES DEMOISELLES DE ROCHEFORT (a follow up to THE UMBRELLAS OF CHERBOURG). Then I close with the film WHAT A WAY TO GO in which Gene Kelly makes fun of himself. So hilarious.


*How the Other Half Lives: Rich People Undercover* - These are all movies in which a rich person pretends to be a poor person for one reason or another. Fun movies all.


*How the OTHER Other Half Lives: Cinderella Stories* - These are all literal Cinderella stories, which means they are the esact opposite of the movies before: POOR people pretending to be RICH. I especially wanted to schedule SLIPPER AND THE ROSE, a Sherman Brothers musical with the fairy godmother and everything, which is the only Cinderella movie in which they deal with the question I always wonder: how can a Prince politically be allowed to marry a commoner?


*I Am My Own Evil Twin* - These are all movies in which an actor plays their own sibling(s), or in the case of KIND HEARTS AND CORONETS (my favorite in the bunch), he plays other relatives as well. There is some clever split screening as well, but mostly some first rate character acting.


*Can’t You Take a Hint?* - I’m sure you can see the connection between these movies. But I did want to point out that GOODBYE CHARLIE really needs to be shown on TCM. It shows off Debbie Reynolds’ acting abilities as she plays a dead ladies’ man who has come back to life as a lady. She is quite believable as a man trapped in a woman’s body. And Walter Matthau is quite hilarious in the film as well.


*TCM UNDERGROUND* - Other than THE MOLE PEOPLE, a classic B-movie starring Mr. Shirley Temple and Ward Cleaver, I scheduled Tim Burton’s twisted and fun short film FRANKENWEENIE (which is being made into a feature length film). It’s ever so much fun.


*A Real Fixer-Upper* - As someone who bought a fixer-upper, I sympathize with these movies in which people have to live in run-down houses as they make them liveable. (Although I never threw rocks through the windows of mine, like George and Mary Bailey did.){font}



{font:Arial}*Happy Birthday to Music Master LEONARD BERNSTEIN* - This could also be named after an album I own: “Leonard Bernstein’s New York.” To celebrate Lenny’s birthday, I scheduled two films based on Broadway shows he wrote (though ON THE TOWN only has a few of his original songs), the only film he scored, and the 1958 TV movie (thanks, kingrat!) WONDERFUL TOWN. This is one of my favorite musicals and I want everyone to see it. To me it is the definitive version of “My Sister Eileen” and it’s so funny and great I pretty much hate all the other versions. There are lots of fun and memorable songs with lyrics by Comden & Green, such as “100 Easy Ways to Lose a Man”. This TV movie features the Broadway show’s original star, Rosalind Russell, who rocks this part. Isn’t that enough reason to show this on TCM?


*OSCAR CHALLENGE: Never Nominated? Not Anymore* - For my last magical trick, I fulfill my duty and reassign some Oscars. Since I could be here all day fixing Oscar injustices, I chose to narrow it down by giving Oscars to fantastic classic movie actors who were never even nominated. It’s one thing never to win, but to go an entire career and never be nominated is absolutely disgraceful. And although “reassigning Oscars” means I’m taking Oscars away from people, I decided not to worry about that and am simply awarding what I consider to be their best performances. So here are five great actors who are now, through the magic of tcm.com, finally receiving Oscars: Joseph Cotten, Myrna Loy, John Barrymore, Edward G Robinson, and the highly underrated Ward Bond. Congratulations to the new winners!

As Kingrat instructed us in his theme for this challenge, we've got to re-award some Academy Awards that might not have gone to the most deserving recipients. So, with that in mind...


We begin with an award for Elizabeth Taylor. Not necessarily for her acting in this film, but simply for surviving it, which was an amazing achievement in itself...


6:45 AM Cleopatra (1963) Color-192 mins. 20th Century Fox, Elizabeth Taylor, Richard Burton. Dir Joseph Mankiewicz. P/S


Next up is an actress who unquestionably deserved a competitive Oscar, so we're going to give Judy Garland one...


10:00 AM A Star is Born (1954) Color-181 mins. Warner Brothers, Judy Garland, James Mason. Dir George Cukor. P/S


And then we move on to an epid which did win for Best Director, but certainly ought to have gotten Best Picture as well (we'll return to this theme later in the week as well)...


1:00 PM Giant (1956) Color-201 mins. Warner Brothers, Rock Hudson, Elizabeth Taylor. Dir George Stevens. P/S


And finally we award a 1988 film that arguably ought to have won Best Picture, and definitely ought to have earned Glenn Close a Best Actress statuette...


4:30 PM Dangerous Liaisons (1988) Color-119 mins. Warner Brothers, Glenn Close, John Malkovich. Dir Stephen Frears. Premiere






Three events of historical interest occured on November 26th, and we're going to note them all.


First, there's the opening of King Tut's tomb in 1922...





Back to the pre-Christmas season, the first Macy's Thanksgiving Day parade occured on this date in 1924. There's simply no other way to mark that except with...


6:30 PM Miracle on 34th Street (1947) BW-96 mins. 20th Century Fox, Edmund Gwenn, Maureen O'Hara. Dir George Seaton. P/S


It's on to our Star of the Month on this Tuesday evening, and we think that one Mr. Jack Carson is an eminently deserving honoree, so we've got five films of his this evening (and any excuse to show "Arsenic and Old Lace" is appreciated!)


8:00 PM Hollywood Canteen (1944) BW-124 mins. Warner Brothers, Bette Davis, John Garfield. Dir Delmer Daves. P/S

10:15 PM The Good Humor Man (1950) BW-80 mins. Columbia, Jack Carson, Lola Albright. Dir Lloyd Bacon. P/S

3:00 AM Arsenic and Old Lace (1944) BW-118 mins. Warner Brothers, Cary Grant, Priscilla Lane. Dir Frank Capra. P/S




It's time to re-award some more Oscars. We begin with the 1965 Academy Awards, where we can rectify two injustices. Omar Sharif wasn't even nominated? Seriously? And Elizabeth Hartman really deserved the Oscar, especially considering her tragic life and death...


5:00 AM Doctor Zhivago (1965) Color-197 mins. MGM, Omar Sharif, Julie Christie. Dir David Lean. P/S

8:15 AM A Patch of Blue (1965) BW-105 mins. MGM, Elizabeth Hartmann, Sidney Poirier. Dir Guy Green. P/S


We've got to give an Oscar to Barbra Streisand...


10:15 AM The Way We Were (1973) Color-118 mins. Columbia, Barbra Streisand, Robert Redford. Dir Sydney Pollack. P/S


And it defies belief that a film considered to be the greatest musical of all time wasn't even nominated for Best Picture. We can fix that...


12:15 PM Singing in the Rain (1952) Color-103 mins. MGM, Gene Kelly, Debbie Reynolds. Dir Stanley Donen. P/S


William Powell ought to have gotten a statuette, so we give him one...


2:00 PM My Man Godfrey (1936) BW-94 mins. Universal, William Powell, Carole Lombard. Dir Gregory La Cava. P/S


It's a safe bet that John Travolta will never win one, and that makes us a little bit sad, so...


4:00 PM Saturday Night Fever (1977) Color-118 mins. Paramount, John Travolta, Karen Lynn Gorney. Dir John Badham. P/S


4:00 PM Saturday Night Fever (1977) Color-118 mins. Paramount, John Travolta, Karen Lynn Gorney. Dir John Badham. P/S


And finally, we know that Anjelica Huston's got one already, but she was really great and unspeakably creepy and she ought to have won for...


6:00 PM The Grifters (1990) Color-110 mins. Miramax, Anjelica Huston, John Cusack. Dir Stephen Frears. Premiere


And now it's time to play Guest Programmer, with four films chosen just because we like them.


8:00 PM Defending Your Life (1991) Color-112 mins. Geffen Pictures, Albert Brooks, Meryl Streep. Dir Albert Brooks. Premiere

10:00 PM The Hudsucker Proxy (1994) Color-111 mins. Warner Brothers, Tim Robbins, Jennifer Jason Leigh. Dir Joel & Ethan Coen. Premiere

12:00 AM Breaking Away (1979) Color-101 mins. 20th Century Fox, Dennis Christopher, Dennis Quaid. Dir Peter Yates. P/S

1:45 AM Vive la Tour (1960) Color-18 mins. NEF, Jean Bobet. Dir Louis Malle. P/S

2:15 AM L.A. Story (1991) Color-95 mins. Carolco Pictures, Steve Martin, Victoria Tennant. Dir Mick Jackson. Premiere


"Defending Your Life" is a very underrated, hilarious film. "Hudsucker" is flat-out brilliant. "Breaking Away" has become one of my wife's all-time favorite films. And I just absolutely love "L.A. Story"

And then, to round out the day, one of the inspirations for "The Hudsucker Proxy", and then for good measure another movie about newspapers...


4:00 AM His Girl Friday (1940) BW-92 mins. Columbia, Cary Grant, Rosalind Russell. Dir Howard Hawks. P/S

5:30 AM Story of a Newspaper (1954) BW-30 mins. National Film Board of Canada, Lloyd Boucher. Dir Julian Biggs. P/S




It's Burby Berkeley's birthday, and we obviously can't let that pass. But while we've got a couple of his films, we're honoring his spirit as much as his actual work. We've got a whole slate of movies whose plot boils down to "Hey, kids, let's put on a show!" And, as you'll see, they certainly do...


6:00 AM Babes in Arms (1939) BW-94 mins. MGM, Mickey Rooney, Judy Garland. Dir Busby Berkeley. P/S

7:45 AM Stepping Out (1991) Color-106 mins. Paramount, Liza Minelli, Shelly Winters. Dir Lewis Gilbert. P/S

1:45 PM A Chorus Line (1985) Color-113 mins. MGM, Michael Douglas, Terrence Mann. Dir Richard Attenborough. P/S

5:45 PM The Band Wagon (1953) Color-112 mins. MGM, Fred Astaire, Cyd Charisse. Dir Vincente Minelli. P/S

7:45 PM One Froggy Evening (1955) Color-7 mins. Warner Brothers, Bill Roberts. Dir Chuck Jones. P/S


It's also the birthday of Louisa May Alcott, which is equally worth celebrating. But there will be no Katharine Hepburn or June Allyson (or even Winona Ryder) tonight. No! Instead we go back gto 1918 for a silent telling of "Little Women", followed by two of her lesser-known works...


8:00 PM Little Women (1918) BW-60 mins. World Pictures, Isabel Lamen, Dorothy Bernard. Dir Harry Knoles. P/S

9:15 PM Little Men (1940) BW-84 mins. RKO, Kay Francis, Jack Oakie. Dir Norman McLeod. P/S

10:45 PM An Old Fashioned Girl (1949) Color-82 mins. Equity Pictures, Gloria Jean, Jimmy Lydon. Dir Arthur Dreifuss. P/S


We then return to considering the pre-Christmas season. Where does Santa live? The North Pole, of course!


12:15 AM The Atomic Submarine (1959) BW-72 mins. Allied Artists, Arthur Franz, Dick Foran. Dir Spencer Bennett. P/S

1:30 AM Snow Place Like Home (1948) Color-7 mins. Famous Studios, Jackson Beck, Jack Mercer. Dir Seymour Kneitel. P/S

1:45 AM North to Alaska (1960) Color-122 mins. 20th Century Fox, John Wayne, Stewart Granger. Dir Henry Hathaway. P/S

4:00 AM Lovers of the Arctic Circle (1998) Color-112 mins. Canal+, Najwa Nimri, Fele Martinez. Dir Julio Medem. Premiere



During the pre-Christmas season, we learn that there are two kinds of children. Good ones...


6:00 AM The Little Princess (1939) BW-93 mins. 20th Century Fox, Shirley Temple, Richard Greene. Dir Walter Lang. P/S


And what do good children get? Toys!


7:45 AM Broken Toys (1935) Color-8 mins. Walt Disney Productions, Sara Berner, Tommy Bupp. Dir Ben Sharpsteen. P/S

8:00 AM The Toy (1982) Color-102 mins. Columbia, Richard Pryor, Jackie Gleason. Dir Richard Donner. P/S


There are also bad children...


9:45 AM The Bad Seed (1956) BW-129 mins. Warner Brothers, Nancy Kelly, Patty McCormick. Dir Mervyn LeRoy. P/S

12:00 PM The Children's Hour (1961) BW-107 mins. United Artists, Audrey Hepburn, Shirley MacLaine. Dir William Wyler. P/S


And everyone knows what they get...lumps of coal!


2:00 PM The Molly Maguires (1970) Color-124 mins. Paramount, Sean Connery, Richard Harris. Dir Martin Ritt. P/S


Today is Virginia Mayo's birthday, so we honor her with two films...4:15 PM She's Working Her Way Through College (1952) Color-104 mins. Warner Brothers, Virginia Mayo, Ronald Reagan. Dir H. Bruce Humberstone. P/S 6:15 PM South Sea Woman (1953) BW-99 mins. Warner Brothers, Burt Lancaster, Virginia Mayo. Dir Arthur Lubin. P/S


And then we're on to our last round of re-awarding Oscars.


First up, what ought to have been the Best Picture of 1985 (and as with Giant, it did win a Best Director oscar for John Huston, but that's simply not enough!):


8:00 PM Prizzi's Honor (1985) Color-130 mins. ABC Motion Pictures, Jack Nicholson, Kathleen Turner. Dir John Huston. P/S


Next is a film that wasn't even eligible for Oscar consideration, because it premiered on HBO before geetting a run in theaters. Which is totally unfair, because Linda Fiorentino absolutely deserved an award for...


10:15 PM The Last Seduction (1994) Color-110 mins. ITC, Linda Fiorentino, Peter Berg. Dir John Dahl. Premiere


Next up a film that did get a couple of nominatons, but in my mind was the Best Picture of 2001...


12:15 AM Almost Famous (2000) Color-122 mins. Columbia, Billy Crudup, Frances McDormand. Dir Cameron Crowe. Premiere


And finally, the film that should have gotten the oscar at 1982's ceremont as Best Picture...


2:30 AM Raiders of the Lost Ark (1981) Color-115 mins. Paramount, Harrison Ford, Karen Allen. Dir Steven Spielberg. P/S


We close the night with our TCM Underground selection, and if there's any one fiilm that fits this category, it's this one...


4:30 AM The Rocky Horror Picture Show (1975) Color-100 mins. 20th Century Fox, Tim Curry, Susan Sarandon. Dir Jim Sharman. Exempt




We reach the end of the week, and it's the birthday of one of the most prolific filmmakers of the last 40+ years, and who's still going strong. We'll try to forget about his sordid personal life, and focus on his work, with a full day honoring Woody Allen...


6:15 AM Vicky Cristina Barcelona (2008) Color-96 mins. The Weinstein Company, Rebecca Hall, Scarlett Johansson. Dir Woody Allen. Premiere

8:15 AM Men of Crisis: The Harvey Wallinger Story (1971) Color-25 mins. WNET-13 New York, Woody Allen, David Ackroyd. Dir Woody Allen. P/S

11:30 PM What's New Pussycat (1965) Color-108 mins. United Artists, Peter Sellers, Peter O'Toole. Dir Clive Donner. P/S

1:30 AM Only Angels Have Wings (1939) BW-121 mins. Columbia, Cary Grant, Jean Arthur. Dir Howard Hawks. P/S

3:45 AM Air Mail (1932) BW-84 mins. Universal, Pat O'Brien, Ralph Bellamy. Dir John Ford. P/S

Kudos to who ever picked Fairbanks Two-Color Technicolor Extravaganza THE BLACK PIRATE (1926) and in Prime-time! Far as I know it's never been on TCM before. Just going over these lists right now, and it's to late to vote. Phooey! Should have paid more attention. By the way, who won?


Also noticed at least a couple other Silents that have not been on TCM since thew 90's, if at all, SALLY OF THE SAWDUST, and THE MAN WHO LAUGHS. And SEVEN CHANCES on the Essentials! Great, but what about SEVENTH HEAVEN?



Very much liked the concept of the should have won Oscars in this category, but didn't as well. That's a good theme.

gagman, itis not too late to vote! The voting stops on March 12th, its only March 5th! Please vote!


By the way, I was the person who included The Black Pirate! Thanks for your kudos!


I also was the one who scheduled The Man Who Laughs! I'm so glad that you like my schedule! I love hearing what people think (a couple of votes wouldn't be bad either! ;) )

Oh, Ok, My Mistake. I vote for you! How do I cast my balot? Now we need to contact Chuck Tabesh and actually get THE BLACK PIRATE, and THE MAN WHO LOAUGHS on TCM.


Also for the person who came up with the should have been nominted idea. In the first year of the Acadmy Awards both LILAC TIME, and FOUR SONS should have been nminted for best original song. Don't think they had that Award yet. LILAC TIME for "JEANNINE". FOUR SONS for "LITTLE MOTHER". FOUR SONS also should have been up for Best Picture. It won the Photoplay Medal of Honor for 1928 from the fans as the Best movie of the year. John Forfd maybe up for best director. Version of DVD doesn't have the Movie-tone score though. This is also another attempt to get LILAC TIME a look so we can finally get a TCM premiere. The picture is screening in just 2 days in L. A. March 7th at 7.30 PM at Cinefamily. A rare 35 Millimeter showing.

These are all truly wonderful schedules!


I wish to thank kingrat for creating such a marvelous Challenge.



All of your choices are excellent and each should truly have won the award. It is nice to see so many comedies in your schedule as they are so often ignored by awards. My favorites are: Trouble in Paradise, Queen Christina, Midnight, His Girl Friday and The Quiet Man.



I believe little should be said of this schedule. It is obviously the result of mixing pseudoephedrine with hot rum toddies.



I love the idea of using TCM's Summer Under the Stars as a basis to showcase your actors. My favorites are: The Great Race, Murder By Death and The Cheap Detective all shown together and The Grass Is Greener, The Ghost Breakers, How To Murder Your Wife and The Front Page. Ralph Bakshi's The Lord Of The Rings is excellent for TCM UnderGround!



The first day of your schedule makes me sad because I know we will never see such a line-up in a real schedule. To have Miyazaki, Mizoguchi, Pudovkin, Shepitko and Ozu in one day is very much more than we can ever expect. Many of your choices for Monday and Tuesday could have been cribbed from lists of my favorites movies. It is truly sad that Erland Josephson could not have lived to see TCM provide such a tribute.



This is an amazing schedule. It is often forgotten that the 1920s and 1930s were the basis out of which the Golden Age grew. My favorites are: L'Inhumane, Rebecca, Trouble in Paradise, The Black Pirate and all of Saturday's science fiction and horror.


I will not critique my own schedule as Capuchin always does. I will say that it contains an error: the name and date of the movie at 11:00 AM on 17 Thursday should have been Trader Horn (1931) and not Trailer Horn (1950). I do not know how I made this mistake as one is an adventure and the other is a cartoon.


Lonesome Polecat:

Your schedule is absolutely wonderful! I would very much like to see Babette?s Feast as the TCM Import. All of the movies for your "Butler's Ball" are wonderful. Peter Ustinov is a great choice for Star of the Month. He is always a delight. I did not know that We?re No Angels had ever been shown. I hope it soon comes back into the rotation. "I Am My Own Evil Twin" is inspired! I agree completely with you Oscar corrections. I can not list all of my favorite movies in your schedule as there are so very many!



This is a wonderful schedule! My favorites are: Love is a Ball, The Reluctant Saint, Cleopatra, My Man Godfrey and His Girl Friday. I would very much like to see Jack Carson as the Star of the Month. Your tribute to Ricardo Montalban has many great movies.



Your schedules are always a high point in the Challenges. This one is truly marvelous in all respects. My favorite themes are: Fireman Save My Plot, Marie Antoinette, Elite Education and Six More Chances. Sylvia Sidney is a wonderful Star of the Month and it is made more special as being in movies based upon such literary classics. Your notations for the actresses in the TCM's Little Black Book are hilarious! I have never seen Sex Kittens Go To College. The title alone makes it seem as if it must truly be a cult film!


These are all truly wonderful schedules and I hope very much that the TCM Programmers use many of the ideas in them. You are all to be congratulated for your brilliant work!


It was very difficult to chose only one. My choice for my vote had to be based on consistency: that there are several movies each and every day that I would like to watch. Both Lonesome Polecat and countessdelave meet that criteria. I wish I could give half a vote to each.


As I can not do that I give my vote to: *Lonesome Polecat* because the Monday schedule would keep me watching the television all day.

It's just riduculously hard to pick a favorite from the eight (can't vote for my own) schedules here!


CountessDelave's schedule is fantastic; I think I like the "Little Black Book" theme best of all (and nice work finding entries for X and Z!)


Sunny75's schedule is really strong every day, and I love how the Oscar theme was used all the way through the week.


Capuchin's apocalypse theme was great - really creative and well done.


Aimalac did a super job with the Dean Martin/Jerry Lewis SotM teamup. As others have said, the animated Lord of the Rings is just a brilliant choice. And you're a programmer after my own heart for including Star Wars as an Oscar snub (I was thisclose to including it in my schedule as well)


Skimpole's schedule is wonderful (I'm running out of adjectives here!). Two Miyazaki films! Eisenstein! Blade Runner! And I really really love the choice of "The Thin Red Line".


BetteDavis19 did an excellent job. I liked the tribute to Asta/Skippy, the Art Deco day, and the rare/early Better Davis films.


I loved SansFin's schedule and all the mini-themes. More Miazaki! The "Mad Doctors" day is probably my favorite, but I do have to ask - how could you not include "The Abomanible Dr. Phibes"?


Lonesome Ploecat did a great job. I like the look back to 1962 (and "Dr. No" is a treat!). I totally agree with "Shadow of a Doubt" for The Essentials. The Leonard Bernstein tribute is much apreciated, and I thought that "As Seen on MASH" theme was inspired!


If I have to pick just one (which is not fair, I'd like to vote for everyone, as they're all excellent!), my vote goes to CountessDelave.

Thank you, LonesomePolecat for the vote. It's good to find someone that enjoys Dean Martin. I know this will stir up some debate, but I think Dean Martin is the closest to Cary Grant as there is, and even outdoes Cary Grant in many ways. He makes everything he does look like he's having so much fun and he can sing better than Cary Grant.

I thank you for your kind words.


I had that movie in the list of ones to schedule. It is sad to say that the timing did not allow it except if I had substituted it for the Fredric March movie.

Now that you have to ask, could it be that "The Abomanible Dr. Phibes" was not included because there is no such movie? :-)


Hint: try using the spell-checker.



(putting one over on that spell checker)
