Upcoming shorts on TCM


Recommended Posts

I think they only showed a handful. When they got the Roach shorts I think they started with Todd/Pitts and Boyfriends before MGM , , started his/her posts, but except for Southern Exposure I think they were posted. Maybe somebody will be kind enough to list the Chase shorts that were shown so you'll know if you missed any.

I'm pretty sure that one was listed, too. In any event, I got it. None of the Chases were shown before these listings started back in late June. Some of the Todd/Kelly ones and the Boy Friends were, but not Charlie. Check back down the thread for each of MGMWBRKO's posts, if nobody else posts them. My cumulative list I was keeping (as a Word document) went "bye-bye" last week, or I'd post from it.

Note: There appears to be an am/pm typo for "Let's Sing A Song Of the West" on 1/30. I am assuming it should be PM.

the question as to wether or not "service with a smile" is still to be shown 7:30pm on 1/29

 

 

MGMWBRKO lists the unlisted shorts for us, not the items that are already on the schedule. "Service" is Festival of Shorts #51, so it's already in the schedule. LG gives us fuller descriptions than MGM... has time to do. Remember, these listings are a labor of love, not something TCM itself provides for us; they have to be scheduled at almost the last moment, once TCM knows exactly how much time is left for them (and sometimes there are still things that change).

Next Tuesday's showing of Keg o' My Heart might be of historic proportions. According to the filmography in Richard Lewis Ward's "A History of the Hal Roach Studios," this film was shelved in 1933 and "scrapped as a lost cause during the editing phase." Can anyone confirm or deny this statement, but more importantly, does anyone know if this might indeed be the first time this film has seen the light of day? Pretty exciting stuff, even if the film turns out to be mediocre.

I spoke to Richard W, Bann this evening regarding the screening of Keg O'My Heart on TCM. He confirmed that he had helped in assembling a restoration of this Roach short several years ago. He also mentioned that it in his opinion, it is truly awful. Next week, we can form our own opinion.

1/28 5:43am/2:43a - Mutiny on the Bounty (New York World's Fair) ?_________________________________________________________

 

I think this is the 1964 promo found on the Mutiny on the Bounty (director: Milestone) dvd.

 

This is from a dvdmg.com review of the Mutiny on the Bounty dvd:

 

For a historical featurette, we find 1964 New York World?s Fair Promo. This six-minute and 35-second clip essentially acts as a long trailer for Bounty - or for the Fair attraction, at least. It shows us many shots of the recreated ship and offers much hyperbole about it. Despite a few interesting glimpses of the elements, this is a pretty dull short.

I am new to the message board and I wanted to ask anyone if they have seen a MGM short titled: "A Wee Bit of Scotland" ? It was made in 1949 by MGM and it might be a film I am looking for. If anyone has seen it, would you contact me ?

 

Thanks,

I would suppose that he meant awful as in not very funny.

 

Dick will be doing several shows of Hal Roach rarities at the Syracuse Cinefest this March and mentioned that Keg O'My Heart is not a rarity that he would want to include among the screenings.

 

Among the films that he will be screening are "Hurdy Gurdy" which is the first sound All-Star short and features Max Davidson, Thelma Todd and Edgar Kennedy.

 

Also scheduled so far are a 45 minute French language version of the 1930 Charley Chase Two-reeler, ALL TEED UP and the spanish language version of the 1930 Harry Langdon short "THE BIG KICK"

Awful means "full of awe"... So this has many meanings. Could be the material, or it could be the quality.

IMO, reels on the cutting room floor should stay there, but, one man's opinion placed them there in the first place.........

 

1/30 7:40am/4:40a - Hot Money 1935-18m-TK

Thanks LaughingGravey, I will have to VCR this one....

I take it that 4:40a is EST...

I think it's the other way around 7:40 A.M. I'm in the east but check the schedule for movies to make sure because I don't want to mislead you but I think Mysterious Island starts at 4:15 a.m and it's a 95 min. movie and Arrowsmith starts at 6 a.m at 108 but that would mean it wouldn't be over till 7:48 now I'm confused. Could somebody please tell me what I'm doing wrong.

Arrowsmith may get in the way, but it's also a pre-code film that also has a cut version that might be shown instead. (that would irritate the pre-code fans of course). We'll have to wait and see.

I'd have to agree that Keg O' My Heart

was not up to the usual Roach Studios quality.

 

The first few moments are a good indicator where

the opening credits proudly proclaim -

The Schmaltz Bothers, Louie and Mayer.

I guess they couldn't find anyone to play B.

That's followed up by girls faces singing in a

haystack - but you can't hear them!

All that's heard is intrumental music with no singing.

 

I'll spare everyone further description.

Having arisen early (for me), I caught "Hot Money", with Patsy and Thelma..This was good, not, IMO, great (little is)...

Yes ! I would either stay up or unretire early to catch ... anything from TK again.

And, being "not quite as good as the Three Stooges", is still a compliment...

Thank you, Laughing Gravy.... and MGMWBPRKO.....
