The Basics

 

Path40a created the first TCM Programming Challenge in February, 2006 to direct posters' energy into positive experiences. The challenge has endured because it allows entrants to exercise their imagination, display their knowledge, and introduce rare classics.

 

TCM Programming Challenges are neither sponsored by nor endorsed by TCM but tcmprogrammr has stated that they happily steal ideas from these schedules. Many entrants have had the joy of seeing their themes and movie selections air on TCM. 

 

The Challenge is to create a week's schedule following TCM's standard format. 

 

Everyone is welcome to create and post a schedule!

 

To Enter:

Create a schedule which begins at 6:00 A.M. (ET) Sunday and ends at 6:00 A.M. (ET) the following Sunday for any week between  March 1, 2015 and February 27, 2016.

 

Each day's programming should begin at 6:00 A.M. (ET).

 

Primetime/Evening must begin at 8:00 P.M. (ET). 

 

Feature movies must start on the hour, quarter-hour, half-hour and three-quarters-hour.

 

All movies must have had theatrical release except for those television programs and movies which TCM has aired previously.

 

*****

 

These regular TCM features must be included:

 

a) Star of the Month - four movies on one evening to showcase an actor. The star must have a body of work large enough to allow similar blocks the other weeks in the month.

 

b ) Silent Sunday Nights - a silent movie which begins at approximately 12:00 A.M. (ET) Sunday night / Monday morning. 

 

c) TCM Imports - a foreign movie which begins at approximately 2 A.M. (ET) Monday.

 

d) Friday Night Spotlight - a group of four movies on Friday night to showcase a theme which spans all of the Friday nights of the month. 

 

e) The Essentials - an indispensable classic movie which begins at 8:00 P.M. (ET) Saturday.

 

f) TCM Underground - a little-known or cult film which begins at approximately 2 A.M. (ET) Saturday.

 

Silent Sunday Nights, TCM Imports and TCM Underground are exempt from the limit of premieres stated in the requirements for this Challenge.

 

You may include a Guest Programmer but are not required to do so.

 

***** 

 

Please show the time, title, year, actor(s), director(s), studio, running time, and any necessary justification.

 

Sample: 

4:45 PM The Challenge(1950) Lionel Barrymore, Asta, Ricky the Wonder Llama. Dir: Hal Lewton and Otto Preminger. Never-Never-Again Films, 3.141 mins., Premiere #32.

 

Running times and studio information may be found in the TCM database and at IMDB.com. 

 

Justifications:

No notation is needed for any movie in the original Turner library.

"P/S" for movies  or programs which have been previously shown on TCM.

"E" or "Exempt" for Silent Sunday Night, TCM Import, or TCM Underground movies.

"PD" or "Public Domain" for movies in the public domain.

"P #x" or "Premiere #x" for movies which count towards the Challenge allowance on premieres.

 

The original Turner library consisted of: 

Warner Bros (pre-1948 only)

MGM (pre-1986 only)

RKO (all)

 

*****

 

Short films or other material should fill in between movies so that there is never more than fourteen minutes of non-scheduled time between feature movies.

 

Programming Notes to explain themes or motives or to provide additional information on selected movies are greatly encouraged. This should be a separate post following the schedule entry.

 

Important Notes on Posting

 

Please use the standard font, font size and font color when posting. Other fonts, sizes and colors are distracting and take up more space. Many find them much harder to read. 

 

If you create your schedule in MS-Word: Please paste your schedule into Notepad or other ASCII text editor and then copy it from there for pasting into Reply box for this thread. This will remove majority of non-standard code and odd fonts. You may then use the forum software's bold and italics options to replace any formatting which was lost.

 

Please do not include links, images, emoticons or other codes as they will slow page loading and may cause error messages.

Previous Challenges can be reviewed in archive:


 

A list of previous Star of the Month and Summer Under the Stars honorees can be found at:


 

*****

 

To tell if a movie has been previously shown on TCM:

 

A movie has definitely been shown if an article is available for it on TCM site. Enter the movie's title into the search bar on the TCM search page. Select the appropriate movie from the list it provides. "Articles" in the list of links at the left side of the screen will be available for selection if an article is available for that movie.

 

This method is not infallible. Some movies which have been shown on TCM have no accompanying programming notes or article. 

 

Please ask if you need help. Some of us have other sources that we can check.

Requirements for TCM Programming Challenge #28

 

This challenge opens at 12:01 A.M. ET, Sunday, January 11, 2015 and runs through 11:59 P.M. ET, Sunday, February 15, 2015. A voting thread will be started shortly after the end of the challenge.

 

The week chosen must be between March 1, 2015 to February 27, 2016. 

 

You may use up to 10 premieres in this challenge. 

 

Short films do not count toward the limit on premieres when used to fill up to 15 minutes between feature films. 

 

Required Theme:

 

As Time Goes By

 

One evening of four movies with a specific theme with each movie having been made in a later decade than the previous movie. The movies are to progress with the first movie being made no later than 1939 and last movie no earlier than 1980.

 

The theme which unites the movies is of your choosing. It may be genre, director, actor, cinematographer or any other factor.

 

These are not to be remakes or use the same source material as other movies in the evening.

 

Please do not use this theme for your Star of the Month.

 

*****

 

Optional Theme

 

"Movies TCM Will Never Show" 

An evening of at least four movies which TCM has not aired and likely will never air because there is no extant print, rights will never be relinquished or other known reasons. 

 

Pornography will not be allowed! 

 

Four movies in this Optional Theme will not count against Premiere Count. Please mark them as: EO#1, EO#2, EO#3 and EO#4 as justification to represent: Exempt Option.

 

All movies must have had theatrical release except for those television programs and movies which TCM has aired previously.

Special Rule Concerning Disney Movies

 

For TCM Programming Challenge #28: Disney-created animated full-length movies may appear on Sunday evening. 

 

These movies count against limit for number of Premieres.

 

Silent Sunday Nights and/or TCM Imports may be omitted if their time is overrun by these movies. They are to appear as normal if time allows.

 

Please note: Not all movies of a Disney-themed Sunday night must be animated. It is quite acceptable to mix animated with live-action and hybrid Disney movies.

 

 

The reason for this allowance is that I do not know how the new business arrangement between TCM and Disney will affect access to Disney library. I believe it appropriate that Challenge rules reflect real-world possibilities.

 

Removal of normal proscription against Disney-created animated movies is for this Challenge only. Future Challenge-Setters may have more information on which movies might be available to TCM and they will use their best judgement in setting rules for their Challenges.

 

This rule does not change status of Disney live action movies or Disney-owned animated movies which were made by other studios. These movies may appear as normal in any place in schedule as either Previously Shown or as Premiere.

Excellent challenge SansFin! I'm looking forward to creating another schedule.

...

 

I thank you for your kind words.

 

I fear that wording of requirement may not be understandable to all. I hope any who have confusion will please note it and I will do my best to adjust so that it is understandable.

 

 

 

In fact, I may start brainstorming right now.  It'll be a nice break from the internet house hunting...

 

That sounds as if it requires much dedication to your avocation. I have seen hunting cabins and fishing shacks but this is first I have heard of Internet house.

Thank you.  Lol re: internet house.  I have to keep on top of the house listings online for areas I'm interested in moving in.  Houses up in the Portland Metro area seem to be in a high demand, or at least high demand in my price range.  It's very frustrating and I've only been at it for a couple weeks. 

 

I think I have my SOTM narrowed down to a handful.  I think I already have my Friday Night Spotlight picked out.

Woo hoo!!! Disney cartoons allowed! Sunday night is just the spot for them, too :)

 

I kind of understand the AS TIME GOES BY challenge but I'd love an example, being a visual person who was never good at word problems. Actually, I might have written something in a previous schedule that might work for this.

 

This is from two challenges ago, and I'm only using it as an example, but is this something that would fulfill your AS TIME GOES BY challenge?

 

THE MANY DECADES OF KATHERINE HEPBURN

8:30am Bringing Up Baby (1938) Cary Grant & Katharine Hepburn, dir Howard Hawks RKO 102min (p/s)

10:15am Adam’s Rib (1949) Katharine Hepburn & Spencer Tracy, dir George Cukor MGM 100min (p/s)

12:00pm The African Queen (1951) Humphrey Bogart & Katharine Hepburn, dir John Huston, UA 105min (p/s)

1:45pm Lion in Winter (1968) Peter O’Toole & Katharine Hepburn, dir Anthony Harvey, Embassy Pictures, 134min (p/s)

4:00pm Rooster Cogburn (1975) Katharine Hepburn & John Wayne, dir Stuart Millar, Universal 108min (p/s)

6:00pm On Golden Pond (1981) Katharine Hepburn & Henry Fonda, dir Mark Rydell, Universal 109min (p/s)

 

That being said, I'm already starting on mine and I'm super excited about this! Yay!

I am hoping that inclusion of Disney animated movies will excite many.

 

You are right that your listing is excellent example of what meets requirement of one element in successive decades. 

 

Other examples may be seen in my entry in Challenge #27 which is available at:

http://forums.tcm.com/index.php?/topic/50966-tcm-programming-challenge-27-what-a-character-voting-thread/page-2

Tuesday through Saturday evenings focus on one decade only but first two evenings and all days are all of one theme represented in successive decades. I do not know if it was hubris or laziness which prompted me to think that if such theme was adequate to win Challenge then it is adequate as requirement for Challenge.

SansFin:

 

Love the theme for Challenge #28!   Checking to find out what you had in store for us this time around was the very first thing I did this morning  --   even before I became caffeinated.

 

Also love the inclusion of the Disney films for Sunday night  --  What fun it would be if TCM actually did that one day. 

 

Fingers poised at the keyboard in the hopes of producing a schedule that is sufficiently pithy.

As I understand it, I could then use 4 stories of childhood remembrance, taking place in a previous decade and told in flashback, but produced in another decade as outlined in your instructions, right?

 

Peter Ibbetson (1935)

I Remember Mama (1948)

To Kill A Mockingbird (1962)

A Christmas Story (1983)

That is excellent line-up and it does truly meet Challenge requirement.

 

I hope that you understand that I expect remainder of your schedule to be as excellent as that evening!

It all sounds great. And let's remember that Andre Breton, the founder of surrealism, called Peter Ibbetson a "triumph of surrealist thinking." (I've said that many times before here, but I never tired of repeating it, and wish TCM would show the film!)

 

Sorry for the digression...

My entry for: TCM Programming Challenge #16 used nursery rhymes as themes. Each line of a nursery rhyme was represented by two or three movies.

 

I was many years ago fascinated with surreal haiku. I thought to do schedule with them as I had done with nursery rhymes. I reached point of conflict because I felt that many which I loved did not translate well. Conflict was that I could not decide if that effect would make them more surreal or render them less effective. 

 

I had at one time passing interest also in surreal limericks. I toyed with idea of using them as themes but five lines of limerick means minimum of ten movies which would mean impossibility of selecting movies two hours or more in length.

Question about the movies TCM will never show: would that include made for TV movies? Not really long TV episodes, but seperate movies

 

I am sorry that I did not make it more clear. There is in Basic Rules limit to movie selection: "All movies must have had theatrical release except for those television programs and movies which TCM has aired previously." 

 

I see now that I should have copied that to post concerning optional theme so as to avoid confusion. I thank you for pointing out the confusion. I will edit that into the appropriate post.

Would you consider SONG OF THE SOUTH "animated", it being one of those weird hybrid movies?

 

Bedknobs and Broomsticks (1971) is similar hybrid and it has aired on TCM and so: Song of the South (1946) is suitable to schedule as Premiere. I believe it does fit well for Optional Challenge because there is little hope that Disney will ever license it. 

 

I wish to add also that Disney-created animated movies may be scheduled on Sunday night only but not all movies of such a Disney-themed night must be animated. It is quite acceptable to mix animated with live-action with hybrid Disney movies.

Notes regarding the following schedule:

 

Sunday, January 3 includes a double feature of films about quiz shows, which includes the TCM premiere of Champagne for Caesar (1950).

 

This week's Silent Sunday Night feature and TCM Import are connected by the common theme of serial killers.

 

Monday, January 4 includes several films about flying in the daytime. The evening hours fulfill the requirements of the challenge, with a series of films about wartime romances through the years from 1932 to 1996.

 

Tuesday, January 5 is lent to a birthday celebration for Jane Wyman, with several of her best films airing today. The evening hours focus on the depiction of Catholic priests in the movies, played by (in the order in which the films will air) Montgomery Clift, Karl Malden, Philip Seymour Hoffmann, Bing Crosby, Barry Fitzgerald and Spencer Tracy.

 

Wednesday, January 6 is comprised of a daytime marathon of films set in hotels. The evening hours are devoted to our Star of the Month Peter O'Toole; tonight we focus on his work in the epic/adventure genre, including his two appearances in Oscar-winning best pictures (Lawrence of Arabia (1962) and The Last Emperor (1987)).

 

Thursday, January 7 features a daytime lineup of films with great title sequences, spotlighting the work of artists like Saul Bass and Charles Addams. The evening hours feature some films which feature representations of the afterlife, beginning with the TCM premiere of Defending Your Life (1991).

 

Fridays this month feature daytime marathons of film noir, leading up to the Friday Night Spotlight which I call Noir/Neo-Noir, alternating back-and-forth between the two subgenres. This evening features the TCM premiere of Farewell, My Lovely (1975).

 

On Saturday, January 9, this week's 'Essential' Father of the Bride (1950) provides an excuse to showcase two more films featuring in-laws. The schedule for the week is finished off by a double feature of Dick Van Dyke in the TCM Underground.
