Tomorrow on TCM

Recommended Posts

for the daytime schedule there's a picture of "The (Really) Big Guy" with the theme identified as "Civilized Society." Civilized Society may pertain to King Kong but imo not all of the daytime fliks. it's mostly a kind of mishmash today.

 

or maybe i'm wrongheaded and just don't get the cited connection/thread running through each film. please clue me in!

You're right. I didn't want to say 'mishmash.' The Hedy Lamarr film shows her in her most primitive state. But I didn't want to compare her to an ape. LOL

 

Tomorrow's theme is a little more identifiable.

BILLY THE KID has been airing on the Encore Westerns channel, too. It was Bob Taylor's first film in this genre. It has a very good supporting cast.

Sandy Dennis is easy enough, but there are four other fliks during the 1st half of the day. what's their thread?

 

the 3rd and 4th movies feature Charlotte Rampling although there's no apparent reason for a tribute on April 9. (she deserves more than two movies anyway and any tribute should include the controversial Night Porter which also starred Dirk Bogarde.)

 

so what is the thread among 1) Revolt of the Slaves (a sword and sandal "epic" in 1961 from Italy), 2) Dr. Coppelius (a fantasy), 3) Three (w/Rampling) and 4) Corky (w/Rampling)?

 

the TCM announcer hasn't linked any of the four when he comments between showings.

Hi allthumbs,

 

This is the second time you have come on to this thread with comments that seem a little off-putting. I am sure you mean well, but please do not shoot the messenger. I have no control over what TCM schedules and how they schedule it. And if there is a discernible theme or not.

 

When I look at the morning line-up, I usually start with what calvin has identified on her monthly schedules, then try to find something noteworthy to spotlight (calvin doesn't always list a theme). Nobody ever said that a theme covered the entire daily offerings. In this case, I spotlighted Sandy Dennis because there were three titles that featured her. Sometimes, on Sundays, when there is more of a hodgepodge, I highlight just one artist or film, because it might be something that has not aired in a long time and people may have been waiting to see it. And on Saturdays, when there are those B-film series, I usually mention both of them.

 

Let's just enjoy what TCM gives us each day. We're lucky to have so many great classics!

Very much looking forward to watching MY GAL SAL and ORCHRESTA WIVES tomorrow. :)

 

 

 

Thank You for your posts, they are very much appreciated. I always look forward to reading them, in particular your review of JEZEBEL (Bette Davis). It was very informative.

TB: The vast majority of your other posts related to a day of movies on TCM list a theme. Thus it is only logical for someone to ask what the theme is. I see nothing 'off putting' here.

 

I also wondered the same thing. Of course you don't control the scheduling but since this is a thread you created and update on a daily basis it is only logical one would ask you. It really is a complement (i.e. you're asked because you often have the answer).

Thanks for registering your point of view. :)

 

Part of it is that when there are multiple themes in the morning, it requires extra work for me to locate photos for them. It is easy to just pick the more dominant theme. Regarding today, it had been quite a while since some of Sandy Dennis' films had aired, and I wanted to put the spotlight on her.

 

Obviously, I do not work for TCM. And if I had my own channel, I would pick different themes. Basically, that is what I am doing each day on the Daily Double thread.

thanks TopBilled for your daily review.

 

as far as the Daily Theme goes, i'm with you--not against you (or trying to show you up.) my posts have concerned holes (deliberate or not) by the programmers when the daily schedule is listed.

 

for example, i mentioned Charlotte Rampling which kinda/sorta filled a hole today, but i really was at a loss to link the first two movies or four if the Rampling "link" is just a coincidence. if i have some positive input, i'll note that, but i'm usually perplexed by the programmer, not you, when all the bases aren't covered. when there's been a open spot, i'm just asking you. i'm certainly not combing your ID's for errors just to "one-up" you.

 

i'm sure there are a few more days in the future with bewildering groupings and i hope i can offer some positive comments when they happen.

 

again, thanks for your efforts.

Probably due to time constrictions and availability of certain films, there are holes that the programmers plug with something a bit more random. Tomorrow is an exception because from 6 a.m. until 8 p.m., the entire day's theme is Robert Ryan. But, as you have noted, there are times when the themes are harder to figure out.
