March 2014 Schedule is Up

Recommended Posts

Looks like the SOTM is Carson on TCM, and it looks like I see a lot more "newer" movies than I can ever remember seeing before, many of which are TCM firsts.

 

A couple of noteworthy older premieres, which unfortunately are being shown back-to-back beginning at midnight on Sunday the 16th:

 

*12:00 AM*

*SCAR OF SHAME (1927)*

* *

*In this silent film, a composer marries an abused girl to protect her but can't face his family's prejudices.*

*BW-76 mins, TV-G,*

 

*2:00 AM*

*WITHOUT PITY (1948)*

* *

*A black American GI decides to remain in Italy than return to a racially divided United States and falls in love with an Italian girl.*

*BW-90 mins,*

I can only see the first three days which are the final three days of *31 Days of Oscar* celebration (February only has 28 days (except for leap years) so the Oscar celebration spills over into March.

 

It's due to the fact that when TCM began the Oscar spotlight the awards were broadcast towards the end of March and March has 31 days.

 

When the Academy moved the ceremony up a month, TCM followed suit but the only way to get to 31 days is to spill into the first few days of March.

I was able to see the whole month earlier - you're right Mark that schedule was smokin' - but now all I can see are the first three days again.

 

By the way, since it looks like my days of blowing the schedule wide open weeks in advance of TCM revealing it are over, let me share how I did it.

 

Go to the TCM SEARCH feature at the top of the page. Make sure the "SITE" option is selected. Now enter a category as it appears on the TCM schedule - ROMANCE, COMEDY, ADVENTURE, etc. You'll see several sections as a result. Go to SCHEDULE MATCHES. Everything the TCM schedulers have selected for the next three months is in there for the keyword you selected - COMEDY for example. The only problem is when multiple showings are scheduled, and then they will likely only display the first of the showings. There's also a web component to my search, which I'll tell you about if you're interested in knowing.

Some interesting very oldies that I'd never heard of, looking forward to them. And three British favorites of my youth: Tom Jones, Women in Love, The Loved One. Tom Jones and The Loved One, both directed by Tony Richardson, have the greatest eating scenes in film history: the sexy scene in Tom Jones, with Albert Finney and Joyce Redman; and the hilarious, revolting scene in The Loved One, with Rod Steiger and Ayllene Gibbons.

YIPPEE! So glad about Mary Astor! Wonder why she was bumped from Jan.?

 

 

After checking the schedule EVERY prime time night features well known films of hers that are shown to death on TCM. All the lesser known films are in the early morning hours. Great scheduling TCM! Act of Violence gets a 4pm slot the NEXT DAY.

 

Guess I'd better clear our the DVR by March for all her overnight stuff. :(

I think *Tom Jones* and *The Loved One* are part of a Friday Night Spotlight of food/cooking scenes. It would certainly explain the presence of *Eat Drink Man Woman* and *Christmas in Connecticut* on Friday nights. Oh, and the last three films on the 28th. :-)

 

Louis Wolheim day (at least, I think that's the morning/afternoon of the 28th).

 

*Zardoz* in TCM Underground!

 

*Anna Lucasta*. (Although, I'd be interested in seeing the original version.)

They may be old hat to most of you guys, but I have my sights set on the following for future family movie nights:

 

*Mutiny on the Bounty (1935)*

*Les Miserables (1935)*

*The Gold Rush (1925)* - finally some Chaplin!

*Bright Eyes (1934)* - intro to Shirley

*The Bicycle Thief (1948)* - a good pick for our first foreign film?

 

and Earth vs. the Flying Saucers, Gulliver, Tarzan the Ape Man and Godzilla for our Creature Features!

 

All new to me and mine, except for Godzilla and Tarzan!

The Gold Rush (1925) - finally some Chaplin!

 

Let's hope that this time they're finally showing that 1925 silent version, as opposed to the heavily butchered ("enhanced") 1942 silent/sound hybrid which is nothing but a tribute to Chaplin's unlimited ego. The good news is that since Criterion has recently released a DVD set with both versions on it, we may actually be getting the real deal again. I'm not holding my breath, but you can't lose em all.

 

The Bicycle Thief (1948) - a good pick for our first foreign film?

 

Bicycle Thieves (which is the actual title) may be one of the top 10 movies of all time, and it's placed that high many times in various critics' polls. I could watch it 100 times over and find something new in it each time. It's a profoundly moral tale.

 

That said, you should be warned that it's a film that depicts sorrow of a type that's may be hard to convey to a young child. The plot revolves around the head of a poor Italian family after WW2 who's just gotten a job that requires a bicycle - - - and then the bicycle gets stolen. There's no happy ending, even though seldom has the reality of poverty ever been so eloquently depicted on a movie screen. I'd show it to *my* 12-year old (if I had a 12-year old), but other parents may find it a bit over the heads of a child that age. It's about a world as far removed from Shirley Temple as you can get.

I see, no, I'm SHOCKED to see, that TCM has scheduled The Cossacks for March, listed a 1928 silent costume adventure. I hope this is the extraordinarily rare version with John Gilbert, apparently an impressive production with a plot somewhat similar to that of Taras Bulba. There are supposed to be a torture scene or scenes in the film remarkable for their realism, and the stills of the film show a very dashing looking Gilbert in the lead.

 

Unfortunately there was also a 1928 Soviet Union film made called Kazakebi, which apparenty also translates as The Cossacks. Frustrating that it was made the same year. TCM doesn't list the cast, unfortunately, just the title, though the 100 minute running time listed matches that of the Gilbert film. But we've seen incorrect running times in the TCM listings before to put too much stock in that.

 

If it is the Gilbert silent, this will be a TCM premiere, if not, indeed, a world television premiere. For those who enjoyed TCM's recent broadcast of The Big Parade, The Cossacks reunited Gilobert with the same leading lady, Renee Adoree for what is supposed to be a very entertaining adventure film.

'Sonny Boy' (1989) gets a showing!! Fabulously weird movie! Please, may it be shown in Canada when the time comes. Saw it once many years ago and I just have to record a copy for my collection.

 

When Michael Madsen was speaking to Larry King after David Carradine's death and opined that David was an "evil genius of acting", this is one movie that leapt immediately to mind.

 

Almost as exciting is a rare showing of the offbeat 1963 crime drama 'Johnny Cool', starring the relentlessly alluring Elizabeth Montgomery.

 

This is why I love TCM.

Let's hope that this time they're finally showing that 1925 silent version, as opposed to the heavily butchered ("enhanced") 1942 silent/sound hybrid which is nothing but a tribute to Chaplin's unlimited ego.

 

Thank you for the info AndyM!!! I didn't know about the hybrid version, I'll look into that. Would certainly prefer the original!

 

I'd show it to my 12-year old (if I had a 12-year old), but other parents may find it a bit over the heads of a child that age.

 

My daughter and I had a great discussion after watching The Grapes of Wrath and she digested it well, but I don't think she found it to be great "entertainment". Maybe I will wait awhile before throwing something like that at her again, not to mention with subtitles.

*I'd show ( Bicycle Thieves) to my 12-year old (if I had a 12-year old), but other parents may find it a bit over the heads of a child that age.*

Bicycle Thieves is about as far removed from "entertainment" as you can get, but unlike The Grapes of Wrath, it doesn't have any scenes of gratuitous violence or cruelty. The Grapes of Wrath is overtly political from start to finish, whereas the "message" of Bicycle Thieves is much more about the vagaries of bad luck and how lives can be plunged into the abyss by a single act of misfortune. In the end, it's a call on how well you think your child may be prepared to handle a theme like that, especially one where there are no stirring speeches at the end to remember it by. It's one of those movies where you're going to have to provide most of the explanations, because the movie isn't going to do it for you.

 

As for the 1942 version of The Gold Rush, if you're not used to the 1925 silent version, you may well not react as strongly against the "enhanced" version as I do. (On my personal scale of 1 to 10, the silent version is a 10 and the 1942 version is a 1.) But if it turns out that it's once again the 1942 version that winds up being shown, I would strongly recommend you rent the restored Criterion silent version to see what true genius can bring to a movie without the excess baggage of ego thrown in.

*Fists in the Pocket* was one that jumped out at me, too. Marco Bellocchio was once considered as promising a director as Bertolucci, but his films are hard to find and I've never seen any of them.

 

*Without Pity* sounds intriguing, and *Anna Lucasta* is another one I look forward to, along with *Woman of Straw*, *The Bachelor Party*, and *The Children Are Watching Us*.

 

A shout out to some films which aren't necessarily well-known but are worth your time: *Il Posto*, *Shake Hands with the Devil*, and *Vera Cruz*, which wasn't included in the Burt Lancaster SOTM presentation.
