New Year's Eve Moviethons

If I remember correctly, TCM inaugurated New Year's Eve celebrations with a moviethon of all the Rogers/Astaire movies. Since then, the tradition, if that's what it can be called, has deteriorated considerably, as this year's NY'sE programming attests. This is too bad. In the past, the programming has been a popular go-along with our parties. So I suggest we suggest possible programming for future year end celebrations. I'll start with a few:

 

Preston Sturges films.

 

Heist films. There are lots of fun ones, including Topkapi, The Hot Rock, and Duffy. Some might also suggest The Italian Job (the original), but I don't care for it so much.

 

Bond films. I know we've seen em before, and it likely won't happen again, but it would be nice to see em in a row. Not all of em, but at least the Connery ones. Or, alternately:

 

Bond Spoofs, or espionage films. These can include *Our* Man Flint, Casino Royale (the original), Modesty Blaise, and, if some want it, a Matt Helm film.

Or maybe they could show movies that have New Year's Eve scenes. I'm waiting for TCM to show the Mae West rarity, *Every Day's a Holiday*, which has a great scene, New Year's Eve, 1899-1900, with an inebriated Charles Winninger shouting "Happy New Year!" Winninger repeats his greeting in the wonderful 1936 *Show Boat*, in the "After the Ball" sequence. *Radio Days* also has a great New Year's Eve scene, which ends that best of Woody Allen films.
