At least their theme on December 21 during the daytime appears to be "The End".

However, then they transition to high-spirited Ernst Lubitsch in primetime.

Wow! What a great Christmas / Hannukah / Kwaanza present from TCM.

 

Holiday films each Sunday evening (before "Silent Sunday NIghts"), in the days leading up to Christmas and for 24 hours on December 24th. December 25th is full of sentimental and spiritual family favorites.

 

Truly excited about the Ernst Lubitsch Spotlight.

 

*We're No Angels* premiering on December 9th.

The Alistair Sim *A Christmas Carol* is back this year.

*Carol For Another Christmas* is a Rod Serling adaptation of "A Christmas Carol" that was directed by Joeseph L. Mankiewicz.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Carol_for_Another_Christmas

 

*Double Indemnity* returns to TCM for Barbara Stanwyck month.

*Banjo On My Knee* IS part of the Stanwyck line-up!

 

*Fritz The Cat* comes to TCM Underground! My Lord!

 

A look at "Baby Peggy" along with the TCM debut of the documentary shown last year at the TCM Classic Film Festival.

 

There are more 1930s / pre-code films during the month than one could possibly hope for. Santa Claus is being quite good to Mark Beckuaf.

 

And New Year's Eve has an Abbott & Costello Marathon during the daytime. Record these to watch that night if one isn't into the actual New Year's Eve fare which seems to feature films that revolve around New Year's Eve.

 

A great month to end the year. Thanks Programming Department.

Thank You TCM Programmers.

 

 

I have been requesting "...All The Marbles" (1981) and "Fritz The Cat" (1972) for a long time and I see it has finally happened.

 

 

...All The Marbles on the 7th and Fritz The Cat on the 21st will help bring my collection back to the point of completion of titles I had to leave behind when relocating from Chicago to Las Vegas 17 years ago.

 

 

Thank You again and keep up the good work. I will continue requesting movies, I hope you can continue to schedule them. Two in one month. That's great.

Capuchin will like the schedule on that day because it is very close parallel to day he had in # 21 TCM Programming Challenge.

 

He choose:

7:15AM *The Last Man On Earth* (1964)

8:45AM *On the Beach* (1959)

11:00AM *Five* (1951)

12:45PM *Panic in Year Zero* (1962)

2:30PM *The Bed Sitting Room* (1969)

4:00PM *The World, the Flesh and the Devil* (1959)

 

They choose:

10:30AM *Last Man on Earth* (1964)

12:00PM *Bed Sitting Room* (1969)

2:00PM *Five* (1951)

4:00PM *Panic in Year Zero* (1962)

6:00PM *The World, The Flesh, and The Devil* (1959)

 

There is a major difference in that he scheduled it for the twenty-second because they are all post-apocalypse movies and they scheduled it for the twenty-first which is the day the world is to end.

 

> However, then they transition to high-spirited Ernst Lubitsch in primetime.

This is a very good month's schedule. I think they are paying attention to viewers' complaints about oft-repeated titles. There are a lot of titles from the Turner Library of films that haven't been shown in a long time that are now scheduled. I was very happy to see a fair percentage of titles I have posted about in the Classics Missing in Action thread also now scheduled. This is the way it should be. TCM deserves high ratings in the fourth quarter of 2012.

They are still holding back on all their pre-48 Paramounts and Universal's they haven't shown before.Evidently when they licensed these films their plan was to sell them to us and not show them on TCM. Yes, that is very annoying to me. I am sure a lot of movie fans just don't have the money in this economy to spend on DVD's.

Cody,

 

Exactly who is they, the studio or TCM?

 

The studio has the final say in which films it rents to TCM, not TCM.

 

So, if your theory is correct, it would be the studios who would rather sell the films than make them available to TCM for broadcast. It may be their way of trying to cut back on pirating.

 

Heck, even Warner Archive has a year long moratorium on films before they can be rented to TCM.

 

It certainly makes sense that the other studios would have the same moratorium.

 

And, despite TCM's best efforts, there is no way around that moratorium without the studio's cooperation.

I believe the TCM Shopping people license the sale of DVDs from other studios through an arrangement completely separate from the Programming Department's licenses. I do know that it is a different, non-programming department that handles these commerce arrangements.

 

We have been told all restored Time-Warner titles in the TCM Vault series of DVDs have a one year moratorium placed on them before TCM can present that title on the channel. This is why the rare *Night Flight* was only available for purchase for 12 months and couldn't be shown on TCM until this spring.

 

Similar restrictions may exist on the films from the other studios which are being sold at TCM.com.

Congratulations to Capuchin! That is an impressive achievement for a Challenger. At least, I am impressed.

 

I know that I was "bustin' my buttons" for weeks after I saw one of my Programming Themes integrated into the actual TCM schedule. And TCM made many more adjustments to my "Pulp Fiction" idea than have been done to Capuchin's line-up.

I SEEN A 1995 MOVIE IN THE DECEMBER SCHEDULE ! X-( Too new to be shown on TCM. I also see quite a few 80s movies in in December.

TCM Underground is showing 'Night of the Creeps', which is a old favorite. It belongs on the movie channel. Not on TCM.

 

TCM , why do you feel the need to sneak later movies in your monthly schedules ? This channel is suppose to be 100 % classic film (old hollywood).

 

The number of later films (post 1970) is growing graudually on TCM. You all might not notice or care, but I do.

This has been explained to you in numerous threads the last couple of months. Modern movies have always been a part of TCM from the first month that TCM debuted back in 2004.

 

> This channel is suppose to be 100 % classic film (old hollywood).

 

Again, this statement of yours has been disproved numerous times since you first posted it earlier this summer. A review of those threads will bear this out.

 

> The number of later films (post 1970) is growing graudually on TCM. You all might not notice or care, but I do.

 

Again, this has been disproved numerous times to you throughout the summer.

 

At this point, it's beginning to feel like you post statements like that just to start arguments.

 

I'd like to think that's not what you are trying to do.

And I'm very happy to see those two 1990s movie scheduled, as I requested them recently, one is one of the best French films of the 1990s, the other is a one of 3 films by one of the great contemporary American filmmakers, Charles Burnett.

 

La Promesse by Jean-Pierre and Luc Dardenne

 

When it Rains by Charles Burnett

 

Haven't taken a close look yet but I'm pretty excited about what we're getting here. The debut of Lubitsch's The Loves of Pharoah has been anticipated for some time and those Baby Peggy films should be interesting.

Lo, CAPTAIN JANUARY (1924)! For many years the only version of this movie around was from a heavily re-edited 16 Millimeter Show At Home print issued in the 30's. Cut by at least a couple reels, maybe more. However, a 35 Millimeter Nitrate print recently turned up in Russia that is perhaps complete. I hope that is what we will be seeing. A transfer of the Full-length version. Really looking forward to the Baby Peggy Spotlight! Very exciting news indeed! Let's hope that Diana Sera Cary is still with us when this tribute rolls around.

> Seems every company has it's own policies regarding these things, no?

 

Yes, I didn't mean to imply that every studio and every distributor has the same policy as Warner Archives.

 

Only that some of them might.

 

For the record, *This is Cinerama* is not being released by Warner Archive but rather Flicker Alley.

Fantastic lineup! Happy to see that TCM is keeping Holiday Sunday nights. The Barbara Stanwyck lineup is extensive with some favorites and some that I have never seen before. My DVR will be working overtime in December!

 

 

 

 

 

 

Thank you *calvinnme* for taking the time to post the entire schedule.

Ernst Lubitsch long lost *THE LOVES OF PHARAOH (1922)* is another huge surprise. And in Prime-time too! I had no idea that TCM was picking this movie up at all. Only hoped that they might do so. On the downside, it seems the only other Lubitsch Silent of the schedule is the oft aired *THE STUDENT PRINCE IN OLD HEIDELBERG.*

 

Would have been nice to see some of the early stuff premier such as *THE OYSTER PRINCESS,* and *MADAME DU BARRY.* Both of which have been beautifully restored. Also some of the long unssen American features such as *THREE WOMEN (WB, 1924),* with Pauline Frederick, Marie Prevost, Adolphe Menjou, and Marie Prevost, *FORBIDDEN PARDISE (Paramount, 1924),* with Pola Negri, Rod La Rocque, and Pauline Stark, or *SO THIS IS PARIS (WB, 1926)* with Monte Blue, Patsy Ruth Miller, and Lilliyan Tashman.

 

At the very least a return of *THE MARRIAGE CIRCLE* which has been shown on TCM before many years ago. So has *LADY WINDERMERE'S FAN (WB, 1925).* But I'm grateful for *PHARAOH* it's just that overall Ernst Silent period is not being well represented.

Jeez - what you didn't notice is that it's a short. It's also on at 545am, you can safely ignore it.

He keeps sneaking in that phrase "old Hollywood" as if it was part of the mission statement.

 

When I was growing up, silent films were of the same vintage then as a 70s film is now. I really don't get the beef that some have with films that are post-60 being on the schedule.

 

Month in, month out, it still is pre-60 dominant on TCM and while I am second to no one in my love of the studio era, I'm also open for something else on the menu.
