Howdy,

 

My apologies if this has already been posted about elsewhere...

 

Noticed on TCM Facebook feed information about TCM's Summer 2015 Fan Favorites submissions:

https://turnerclassicmovies.apps.umbel.com/51b/summer2015fanfavorites/

 

At the link above, if you click on "skip" in the bottom right-hand corner next to the TCM Facebook link, you can submit a story to TCM directly.

 

If they like it, TCM contacts you by email, as per instructions:

Has anyone on these boards ever entered one of the TCM "Fan Favorites" contests?

Is this what you were referring to when you thought someone might suggest Hot Spell?

 

I still want to know how much he wants for his copy of it.

I have no idea, HIH??? The favoured (Canucklehead spelling) four feature began last November 29, 2014 on TCM with the favoured four being Aurora Bugallo, Paula Guthat, Joel Williams, and Miguel Rodriguez. Apparently the first favoured four fans were all friends who knew each other from the website "TCM Party":

Guthat yaps about her experience here (she founded and is a "co-host" of "TCM Party", and Joel Williams is also a "co-host" of "TCM Party" ):

And according to this article with tips on how to get chosen as a favoured fan, TCM is going to be doing the "Fan Favorites" thing a few times a year, each time with four chosen fans:

TCM Message Board users may feel that they have their 15 minutes of infamy already and may not be interested in becoming a member of TCM's Famous Favoured Four Fans Forever Formation of elite...

 

Anyway, just FYI...

Thanks, Randy, for sharing this information.

 

I think it would be fun if someone from these boards was chosen.

Thanks, HIH!

And would be fun if you were to be chosen...

But ya gotta apply before you can be chosen, eh?

It don't happen by magic...

Let's see... Oops!

TCM no longer accepting stories:

https://turnerclassicmovies.apps.umbel.com/51b/summer2015fanfavorites/

That was sure a short window of opportunity... Oh well...

 

On the topic of magic (see above), how come nobody has ever done a movie about the conflict over spiritualism between Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and Harry Houdini? They was friends but their opposing views on spiritualism - Doyle a believer, Houdini not - put a big strain on their friendship and eventually ended it, especially with Houdini actively debunking spiritualists and Doyle defending them.

 

The Wiki biography on Houdini states:

"Houdini chronicled his debunking exploits in his book, A Magician Among the Spirits, co-authored with C. M. Eddy, Jr., who was not credited. These activities cost Houdini the friendship of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. Doyle, a firm believer in spiritualism during his later years, refused to believe any of Houdini's exposés. Doyle came to believe that Houdini was a powerful spiritualist medium, and had performed many of his stunts by means of paranormal abilities and was using these abilities to block those of other mediums that he was "debunking".[60] This disagreement led to the two men becoming public antagonists and led Sir Arthur to view Houdini as a dangerous enemy.[18]"

 

There's a bit of that in the flick "FairyTale: A True Story": http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/FairyTale:_A_True_Story

but I don't think it's explored in depth.

 

Don't think there's anything about it in the Tony Curtis flick, either:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Houdini_%28film%29

 

Nothing about the Doyle-Houdini conflict in "Death Defying Acts" too:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Death_Defying_Acts

 

Anyway, enough of that...
