I am sure these have been shown before but not yesterday

WHY ?

and I cannot even contact TCM because Canada is not included in their "Contact Us"

 

Greetings fellow Canuck!

 

It's unfortunate that the Bardot films weren't aired on TCM in Canada.

I don't know exactly why not because we don't have direct access on the message board to TCM to ask and get a response.

 

But I do know that there are many French-language TV channels in Quebec and elsewhere that could have the rights for Canada.

French films are popular in Quebec for the French-language audience there and here in Ontario, TFO airs many French films for the French-speaking audience here. That includes films starring Brigitte Bardot. For example:

TFO's schedule until the end of September 2014 (in PDF) is here:

http://www1.tfo.org/cine/Passeport

 

TFO's new schedule isn't up, yet, so I can't check for Bardot films.

 

TFO also airs many foreign films with either French subtitles or dubbing in French.

And I've even seen Hollywood and British films aired in English with French subtitles.

TFO's main page is here: http://www1.tfo.org/cine/

 

Or some other TV channel like HollywoodSuite could have the film rights?? I really don't know.

 

There is a thread where we try and list the changes and substitution films for Canada beforehand (I didn't do the September schedule changes):

Your best bet for up-to-date information is to check the online schedule for Canada, daily or weekly:

http://www.tcm.com/schedule/canada/weekly.html?tz=MST&sdate=2014-09-22

 

Or monthly: http://www.tcm.com/schedule/canada/monthly.html

 

And TCM's "Now Playing" guide indicates films that won't air in Canada (but doesn't provide the replacements).

That's really too bad, because you missed those X-rated screen tests that BB did when she was only 16.  Unfortunately TCM had it in their contract that they had to destroy the prints after a one time showing, :(

 

I missed those!    But I did watch two of the Bardot movies.    What I liked was that the producer \ director didn't ask her to act like a bimbo, like we often saw with American movie sex goddesses (especially ones like Jane Manfield,  and much too often Monroe).

 

She was indeed flawless looking.

I only recorded but haven't watched the last four Bardot movies last night (and those X-rated shorts), but I loved And God Created Woman.  It just goes to show the pathetic minds of the censors of that era, since at the end of the movie you see Bardot and her husband having shown their disbelieving peers that they were truly in love.  You'd think that this would be the sort of message that the censors would endorse wholeheartedly, but no no no.

We didn't put it on until Une Parisienne because we had gone out to dinner.  I'm afraid that after my husband seeing Brigitte for the first time last night, my marriage will never be the same.  He is absolutely smitten.

 

Well a few nights back the wife and I were watching His Girl Friday (film featured for The Essentials).    She said something like 'sorry,  honey,  but that Cary Grant is just something'.    Of course I didn't mind.    But last night after seeing Brigitte I said the same thing to her related to Bardot.    Hey, fair is fair.   :D

Yeah, I spotted the young Cary in the Mae West and Dietrich precodes last week -- he sure was easy on the eye, and that was before his charming screen persona was fully developed.

She was stunning head to toe, had a lovely voice, was a good actress, and was/is ardent animal lover/protector.

 

Viva BB!

Was at a local Goodwill last night checking things out - there was a 50% off sale - and saw a Bardot biography. Can't remember which one but did think about buying it, before passing. Would have been $2.00

It's probably still there today...

 

Also saw a BFI Film Classics copy of "Meet Me in St. Louis."

It's also probably still there today too...

 

P.S. That's $2.00 Canuck, equals $1.80 Yankee today...

Last night, TFO aired Roman Polanski's "Tess" in English with French subtitles, for example:
