:) I just read that the last of the Palace Passes went today and the Festival is now sold out. I hope that means the more the merrier and this will be the biggest and best one yet. I'll be there in spirit and watching the live reports. Have fun, y'all and stay safe!

'Star, it's so great to hear from you!


Yes, 2014 is definitely going to be a special year. This is also the first time all of the passes have completely sold out two weeks before the festival!



I like to think that I am just a leetle-bitty-bit responsible for the continued popularity of the TCM Film Festival since I've been writing my columns here since shortly after the first festival in 2010. I am so excited to be meeting many TCM Message Board friends that I only get to see once a year like lzcutter, the countessdelave, darrylfxanax, Cinemaven, and kingrat, and making some new ones. It will also be very sad not to see Kyle Kersten (Kyle in Hollywood) this year. Kyle also helped to popularize the TCM Film Festival, as well as Lzcutter and kingrat. :-)



Dedicated Memorial Section of TCM Message Boards to honor Kyle Kersten's Archived Threads: http://forums.tcm.com/forum.jspa?forumID=422


Hugs to you, wouldbestar! :-)


I will miss seeing you, and I plan to post reports from time to time during the hectic, frantic dashes from panels to films. :-)

I hope that those who knew Kyle can gather to toast his memory during the Fest. Not sure that we can do it all as a group (though we can try) but hopefully by the end of the Festival, if nothing else, we can gather in various groupings and remember our dear friend.


It's my first festival without being able to see him or talk to him or compare notes.


As joyous as I am at celebrating 20 years of TCM (and he would be, too), I do wish he was here to celebrate with us.


I miss him very much.

I agree. I think that since so many of us were not in LA for his memorial service, we might be able to arrange a gathering for one last official salute.


These boards haven't been the same without him. We all know that.

I miss him very much, too.


Love and hugs to you, lzcutter.


I'll be seeing you soon. :-)

If only in spirit, please add me to anything you do for Kyle. He encouraged me to come out there in 2011 so staunchly and bought me my first drink when I got there. He was such a sweet and gentle soul and I know he is missed. I can't think of the festival without remembering him.

This just in to Sue Sue's desktop: Alan Arkin is the scheduled guest for the extended interview with Robert Osborne. Arkin's film, *The Heart is a Lonely Hunter*, will also be screened! Arkin, who was adorable in *Argo* is the big news for the day! Read Dennis Millay's article for the Hollywood Reporter here: http://t.co/yDVbqzc5MS


Here's a link to Alan Arkin's official TCM Film Festival bio:



And Judy Garland historian John Fricke has just been added to introduce *Easter Parade....*

Great news! Alan Arkin should be a most interesting subject to interview, and The Heart Is a Lonely Hunter is a fine film. This is one of the few Hollywood films whose picture of the South rings true to a Southerner.


Now we know why they were saving that empty block on Sunday afternoon at the Egyptian theater.


I also just realized that Mark Harris is one of the guest presenters. Because he has just published Five Came Back, a study of directors influenced by their experience in WWII, I imagine he will be introducing The Best Years of Our Lives. He is the husband of playwright Tony Kushner.

So sorry to hear perpetual funny man Tim Conway will not be able to introduce *Cheaper By The Dozen* at 7:15 on Thursday at the TCM Film Festival 2014. This is indeed sad news, and we all hope he will be well.


Also, I hope all TCM Message Board members and guests will read about the new Message Board Migration here: http://forums.tcm.com/ann.jspa?annID=61


Thanks for the comments and the alerts, Lzcutter and Kingrat.

I will be so happy to see you all very soon! :-)

The Magnificent Twenty, coming soon to a screen probably in your living room from April 7 to April 11. I can't wait to see all these great films and Guest Programmers...

Ryan O'Neal has also had to cancel. The list of presenters keeps getting longer, however. It's a great lineup.


There's a list of Special Guests under one of the drop-down menus in the Film Festival section. It seems to be updated just about every day.

Sorry to hear about another cancellation, kingrat. I hope all is well with Mr. O'Neal.


It looks like they added Director Norman Jewison and Sound Designer Ben Burtt. The schedule is getting ready to be perked up!


Also Jeremy Arnold has joined the lineup. He has written many wonderful articles for our TCM website, and is an author, filmmakers, and film historian who has contributed DVD commentaries.
