>Didn't Maureen move to Idaho (or something like that) within the last couple of years? That would make it much easier to get to LA than going from Ireland.


Yes, Maureen is now living in Idaho with her grandson and his family.


And Idaho is much closer than Ireland to Hollywood, thankfully!

Cinecrazy, I am so excited about Maureen coming to the festival! Yes, there was some sort of issue with her caregiver in Ireland and the foundation organized to raise funds for a museum, and she moved to the states to be closer to her family.


Here's a link to an article about the issues:



Hope you are doing well!

Shirley Temple Black, 1928-2014


Shirley Temple in *Captain January,* 1936




An excerpt from an article about Shirley Temple Black written by Norma Welty:

"Many girls, like myself, who grew up extremely poor in the Dust Bowl during the 1930s Great Depression revered Shirley Temple. We knew about her through listening to the girls from the more well-off families whose parents took them to see the young actress's movies. These more fortunate girls often brought pictures of Shirley Temple to school and talked profusely about her and her movies."




"Ms. Temple Black ran for Congress when the majority of voters weren't yet prepared to vote for a woman rather than a male opponent?and was defeated. But she hadn?t put all her eggs in one basket. Later, she was appointed to represent the United States in the United Nations, was the first woman appointed US Chief of Protocol and she later served as US Ambassador to Ghana and US Ambassador to Czechoslovakia. She did it all without fanfare, and to name but a few, she may have paved the way for Madeleine Albright, Condoleezza Rice and Hillary Rodham Clinton."

The annual 31 Days of Oscar Celebration is coming to a close, but I wanted to pay tribute to an excellent film and fine actor...



Paul Scofield in *A Man For All Seasons* (1966) screens this afternoon. If you've never seen it, you might want to read my article. If you have viewed this fabulous film before, then you know how wonderful it is.

I'm watching *Don Juan* (1926) with John Barrymore right now. Mary Astor is lovely, and Barrymore is charming just about everyone appearing on the screen, but off screen, Barrymore's Svengali-like affair with Astor had fizzled, and he was involved during the filming of *Don Juan* with Dolores Costello. Even though Mary was heartbroken, she gives a fabulous performance in the film.


For Margarita Landazuri's lovely TCM Mary Astor Profile, follow the link. Trust me. It won't take long and soon you will know so much more about this wonderfully talented actress who deserves to be Star of the Month for March:

Here's a link to my latest article in *The Examiner* concerning the 'In Memoriam' video. Since the 86th Academy Awards was supposed to pay tribute to the 75th Anniversary of *The Wizard of Oz,* someone from the film was not seriously considered. And that's a shame...

Great news about Charlton Heston. And we now know when TOUCH OF EVIL will be shown.


TCM sent an email today saying that we should receive our Passes by Friday, March 14 unless we asked to have them held at Will Call.


In previous years TCM has announced the full schedule about three weeks before the festival, which means we should hear sometime next week.
