TCM to start new, original programming with hip reality competition "Get Your Facts Right", wherein host Ben the Mank reads movie intros, and contestants have to figure out what he got wrong.

 

Also, a three-camera sitcom entitled "Ben!" starring Ben the Mank as a lovable schlub always getting into trouble with wacky neighbor Betty White.

 

Finally, TCM is proud to present "Cooking with Ben", in which Ben the Mank orders food and wine from a rotating panel of celebrity chefs, then consumes his meal while watching a movie on a small television. A bold step forward in meta-tv.

In response to customer demand, TCM will now present all films in the 16:9 widescreen format. Films with a wider aspect ratio will have the superfluous ends of the image cut off, while pre-widescreen, 4:3 films will have their pictures stretched and/or zoomed in, so that no screen space is wasted.

 

Any remaining customers who prefer the old , "black bars" look can subscribe to TCM Retro, however the black bars on the left and right, or top and bottom, depending on the ratio, will now be filled with a rotating series of colorful and informative banner ads, customized for the TCM fan and their TCM lifestyle.

And Ben the Mank must tell each "chef " the horrid details of what is terribly wrong with their offering. And there will be plenty wrong... it's in the script.

Developers at Kodak Digital have created a software plug-in that will allow filmmakers to simulate the aging normally associated with celluloid film prints in the digital realm.  "In theory it is not unlike the audio software that takes digital and makes it sound more like vinyl" said Kodak vp, Lothar Windrush.  "Now when a film gets older we can take its digital file and bleach out its color, add scratches, etc. and even edit out frames to replicate damage done from a projector."

The story is that the colorization tech did not watch the film through to the end because he was so bored.

In his new book "Three More, Two More, One More...", 1980's fitness guru, Richard Simmons reveals that he was the first choice for Raging Bull (1980).  "No, no, no" writes Simmons, "Not the brother Joey part.  They wanted me for the lead, Jake LaMotta.  I think Marty wanted me because the schedule was going to be very very hard.  First I play Jake at 250 pounds then I have to lose all that weight, then a few weeks later they want reshoots of Jake at 250 pounds.  Then it was back to middleweight.  Then back to fatso Jake and well, you get the picture.  I'm very good at taking the weight off.  We were two weeks away from shooting when I broke four fingers on a punching bag."

And...

this has the added benefit of producing the illusion of a steady-cam when applied to contemporary works.
