Not really. This is your 4th or 5th time requesting these and by now you must realize that your not going to get your wish. These really don't fit TCM's programming. You can hardly call them classic in any sense of the word. (And certainly not by TCM standards.) While your optimism is admirable it is misplaced here. Save yourself the disappointment and the grief and shop for a network that really might be able to help you.

Hello DOSFAN1,

 

I've been wondering about the following for the last two or three years you have been posting the same request. Also, I'm a bit 'burned out' on "Sudoku" and I thought I would try another mental exercise. I will attempt to deduce your screen name acronym. Is it one of the following?

 

DOSFAN1 is Donny Osmond Fanatic 1?

DOSFAN1 is Donny Osmond Super Fan 1?

DOSFAN1 is Devoted Osmonds Fan 1?

DOSFAN1 is Disk Operating Systems Fanatic 1?

DOSFAN1 is Daily Oral Sedatives Four o'clock And Nine o'clock?

 

One of my answers must be correct, so what is DOSFAN1?

 

Rusty

Dosfan, it is obvious to everyone here you are an Osmond fan above and beyond the call of duty. We all have people whose work we enjoy. But there are two important things to remember about Turner Classic Movies:

 

1. Turner Classic Movies are almost 100% from 1910 to the 1960s.

 

2. As far as movies go, and this is very important, Turner Classic Movies only shows films that were released in theaters.

 

I just did a bit of research on the Internet Movie Database to discover what films they were in:

 

1. Donny and Marie appeared in one theatrical movie together, "Goin' Coconuts" from 1978, which is after the years that TCM concentrates on. This does seem a good bet for a network like Nickelodeon. You should write them and see if they will show it.

 

2. Donny was a singing voice in "Mulan," which, while a good film, was released by Disney. Disney has strict control of their films and are never shown on Turner Classic Movies. However, you could probably contact the Disney Channel about showing it.

 

3. Marie and Jimmy Osmond provided voices for a Hungarian animated film called Hugo the Hippo, which is so obscure the American Film Institute's database only has a plot synopsis in Hungarian (they say to write for a translation). You could have luck asking Cartoon Network to run it since it is animated.

 

5. Jimmy was in another film called "The Great Brain" from 1978, again after the period that TCM concentrates on. I can't find any review on but it seems like another possibility for Nickelodeon and ask them to show it.

 

The other credits for them were all TV productions and, as mentioned, Turner has a written-in-stone policy of showing only theatrical movies, never movies made for television.

 

Hopefully, the other networks will be more responsive to your requests.

DOSFAN, take note of this practical and sensible post to you from filmlover, who took the time to discuss your favorites Donnie & Marie.

Yet you didn't have the courtsey to respond to it.

Thanks, Mongo.

 

Dosfan1, TCM can't play two of the movies you want (I Married Wyatt Earp and Wild Women of Chastity Gulch) because they were made for television. TCM only plays movies that played in movie theatres. The remaining one you mentioned, Goin' Coconuts, is much too recent for them to consider it.

 

If you read the post below, you will see the names of other networks that would likely run the films you desire. It is worth your while to write to the other networks if you would like to see the films.

 

Please read the post below.

Your friend has their channels confused.

Please, Dosfan, I'm trying to save you years of endless frustration waiting for any of them to be shown. I have been watching TCM for years and they have not run I Married Wyatt Earp nor The Wild Women of Chastity Gulch. Your friend is in error. About ten years ago, I interviewed Priscilla Barnes, one of the stars of Chastity Gulch, for a magazine and I would have watched if it had ever popped up in that time. But it never has.

 

But here's something that might be of interest to you. I was just looking on eBay and here is a link to an eBay seller who is selling I Married Wyatt Earp for $0.01 (that's only 1 PENNY!) plus shipping.

And another eBay seller who has one for 50 cents plus shipping.

I was just checking on Amazon, and they are selling the DVD for I Married Wyatt Earp for $4.99. Here's the link to it:

So don't waste years of your life for something that will NEVER be shown on TCM because THEY DON'T SHOW TV MOVIES.

"About ten years ago, I interviewed Priscilla Barnes, one of the stars of Chastity Gulch..."

 

Gawd, is this talentless old **** still around? Well, her career (if you wanna call it that) sure fizzled, honey. Isn't she making soft-core porn nowadays? Or at one point she was - who knows and who cares! Why did I respond to a post mentioning a "never was"? Poor thing! Bless her teensy heart.

That was kind of a mean spirited thing to write. When I did the assignment interviewing her for a TV magazine about Three' Company and the like, she seemed to be very nice. I ran into her a year or so ago at a collector's convention, and she still seemed to be a nice person.

 

Why did I respond to a post mentioning a "never was"?

 

I don't know why you responded, either.
