TCM TRIBUTE TO HARRY CAREY, JR.?

Recommended Posts

I would love to see TCM give this grand old man of westerns - *Harry Carey, Jr.* - a tribute day, maybe an interview or even a SOTM slot.

 

He's such a lovely man, and has given such a lot to the film industry. He knew so many of the greats. His book, *Company of Heroes*, is a fascinating read, and describes the making of many great films with a good hearted spin. It would be a shame to lose him and all he knows before he is interviewed by TCM or appreciated in some way.

 

Thanks, TCM, for listening!

An enthusiastic second of the motion to give Harry Carey, Jr. his own day on TCM -- and I'd especially love it if they scheduled it for an August Summer Under the Stars slot. He is one of the last of the great cowboy stars and it's high time TCM officially gave him some movie love.

Here! Here! I completely agree. He's one of the few remaining links to the very beginning of the cowboy movies (via his dad, Harry Carey, Sr.) and worked right up just a few years ago.

 

He's always been ready to say great things about the stars and directors he knew. Some kind of tip of the hat just for him would be lovely.

You know, I * deleted * that first message and yet it turns up anyway. Using the TCM board for me is about as much fun as taking an ice bath outdoors in the middle of a January blizzard. Are you listening, TCM? I try to reply and I get sent back to the front page of the forum. I can't seem to post photos, no matter what code I use. (If there is an icon to click on to add a photo link, I don't see it.) It won't let me edit (it asks me if I want to leave the page if I try to edit) and it won't delete messages even when I click on "discard."

 

And despite all this, here I am breaking my "stay away from the TCM forum because all it will do is drive you crazy" rule because I do want to tell TCM --

 

It's time for a Harry Carey Jr. day. In the words of a great starship captain -- "Make it so!"

Cinemaven has sent me the double-super-secret instructions to how to post a photo. I don't know if this means she has to kill me now or anything, but at least I can post one more of Harry Carey Jr. from 3 Godfathers. I hope. (If I write something, and then click "preview" I can see what I wrote and if the photo works, but if I try to EDIT the preview panel, it won't let me edit anything, so I have to "leave the page" and start all over again. The sheer "brilliance" of the encoding of this board leaves me breathless. Anyway, since I can't really preview it and fix it in preview, here it is... either as a real photo or just more code.

Jeepers, it worked!

 

*faint*

 

(The above posted after the board once again sent me to the front page when I signed in, rather back to the message thread.)

 

Well, it's been fun communing with ya'll on the TCM board but I can't take any more of this place for a while. TCM -- please try to improve this forum (it would be nice if one could actually EDIT in "preview") and also please give Harry Carey, Jr. his much deserved day on TCM.
