*Devil May Care* (which is supposed to include a scene in early Technicolor!) could very well be a TCM premiere, and *Scaramouche* has definitely not been aired in several years, so you might want to be sure to make room for those. Lots of great movies being shown this day.

Sorry, everyone I just made a double thread, I didn't see this one by "Mark". But I guess you can blame it all my excitement to see that "Ramon" got his day! I wish they were showing "call of the flesh" but the line up is great! So looking foward to it...

JC, thank you for sharing your excitement for Ramon Novarro day on Thursday!!!! It's looking so awesome!!

 

No worries on the multiple threads! The more the merrier when it comes to honoring Ramon and the opportunity to dig on silent and early talkie flicks!!!

I too am excited, but in a bind as to what to record, since I'll be at work. And as much as I love THE BIG STEAL, I am glad it isn't shown, since something else is. TBS is on regularly on TCM, Unlike the majority of what has been scheduled for Novarros day.

How grand and glorious than Ramon is finally getting a full 24 hours!! ... I've been a TCM junkie since 1995 and am grateful to have recorded, over the years, all his films that'll be shown Thursday.

 

Back in 2000, I traveled miles over wintery mountain roads for a big-screen showing of *The Red Lily* at the Bijou Theatre, Lincoln City, Oregon. Now THAT was a coup, finding Ramon in little coastal Oregon! The stars were truly aligned! … All thanks to Matias Bombal, who has an amazing collecton and appreciation of Ramon.

 

More serendipitously, browsing through a stash of movie stills at an Oregon antique shop ... at the very bottom ... a large, luminous headshot of Ramon in *Son of India* ... "Hurrell" embossed on the front, an MGM label on the back ... I trimmed the photo to fit a lovely oval Victorian rosewood frame ... before I realized who Hurrell was ...

 

Hope these next 24 hours will ignite a Ramon-esque spark in the hearts of viewers!

 

P.S. The saga isn't complete without admitting, that, yes, when I visited LA, I tracked down his grave at Calvary Cemetary ... Sure is fun being a film fan!

Sorry to be posting this so late, but I just realized when setting up to record *Scaramouche* in the morning, that it's a 124 minute movie scheduled in a two-hour time slot. I've allowed additional time on the back end of my recording, and I hope everyone else not watching live will have done the same (as we always should, since this happens on occasion).

scamp,

 

Wow, that's interesting about the screening of THE RED LILY back in 2000. The following year in 2001 there was a screening of FORBIDDEN HOURS (1928) with Ramon and Renee Adoree and I have been waiting for that film to premiere on TCM year after year ever since. Both of these films were originally considered lost for many decades.

 

Glad that Ramon is getting honored, it's well deserved.

icon_eek.gif Sadly, ACROSS TO SINGAPORE is in horrendous shape. THE PAGAN looks great by comparison, even though it is no better than a 3rd or 4rth generation print at best. So does Marion Davies THE CARDBOARD LOVER which TCM claimed had to much nitrate decomposition to be shown. Same with Caney's WHILE THE CITY SLEEPS. They are nothing like ACROSS TO SINGAPORE. That has really deteriorated. It's to bad a better quality, far less damaged print can't be found. It also needs a different score. The film might be really good, but it difficult to judge in such shoddy condition.

 

With THE PAGAN I had Dorothy Janis listed as number 2 or 3 most beautiful actress of the Silent era. And this film also has my beloved Renee Adoree although she plays third Banana here.I've been told that a much better print of THE PAGAN has since turned up.

I like the chariot race in the 1925 version, and the whole film, better than the later version.

 

Francis X. Bushman seems like such a mean giant up against Ramon Novarro, who seems rather small. But the good guy wins in the end.

 

It is very interesting to me that in this film, all the Romans seem like Nazis.
