Upcoming shorts on TCM

Recommended Posts

Yes, 1945's _People on Paper_ short in

_The Passing Parade_ series

does indeed include Chet Gould and Tracy.

For comic strip fans, it's a treasured short subject.

To Laughing Gravy, all:

 

Infantile Paralysis seems to be a report on the progress of the drive that was held the previous year. She urged people to continue to give money. I am not sure how it would be classified. This is just like the pledges stars did for war bonds. The short is 3 minutes 45 seconds.

 

Also there was a 2 minute 18 second tcm production short about Robert Benchley and his shorts. I am not sure if any of you have seen it. The subject is how to recognize a Robert Benchley short.

And the onscreen title of the infantile paralysis public service short is "A Report from Miss Greer Garson".

Many thanks for the schedule of shorts. Most of these pieces are very interesting and offer a true glimpse into our past. I'm anxious to know the next scheduled airing of Shoeshine Boy. The bandleader in that short was a lesser-known musician known as Mel Manell. He is also the father of one of my best friends and he's been trying to find the film to share with his grandkids. I'm hoping to surprise him with a copy someday. This forum is great. Thanks so much,

I am sure there are good reasons for the recent dearth of Charlie Chase. First, I don't think any of his films were nominated for AAs, hence none were shown during Oscar month.

 

Next, several silent CCs are scheduled for an upcoming Sunday night. So, perhaps the schedulers think he's well represented in the near future (plus the On Demand film for Comcast viewers).

Comcast On Demand has another new Charley Chase up -- "Nurse to You!". They appear to be changing the short they offer, once every week or two, starting with Oscar Month. Hopefully, they'll keep doing that (and maybe eventually make available more than 1 short at a time).

 

Comcast, by the way, has been offering tons of (recent) short movies, for the past year. They're to be found in various parts of their "Cutting Edge" section. Currently, the best ones are found under "Cutting Edge/Shortz/Nano" and "Cutting Edge/Shortz/Icebox". The other sections under "Cutting Edge/Shortz", I find, in my opinion, to be unredeemably awful.

 

Some really strange/offbeat/so bad they're funny ones from the 1940s thru 1960s, are under Cutting Edge/Something Weird.

 

And under the Free Movies Section, in addition to TCM, Palm Pictures also offers some pretty good (modern) shorts. But Palm Pictures only changes them once every several months.

 

Finally, Sundance Channel and IFC also offer (again, modern) shorts regularly. IFC announces when they will be shown. Sundance only announces longer ones, and special clusterings, in advance. I wish they had someone there, like here, who would let people know their short schedule.

 

I very much appreciate those letting us know here. I used to schedule tapes of movies I wanted, extra long before and after, in hopes of catching something interesting by random chance. Half the time when I did, though, it was frustrating, because I only got the beginning or the end.

 

Anyway, this past Friday night, "R.I.P." was supposed to be shown between "Spiderbaby" and "Quatermass". But it wasn't. (If it was shown at a different time, I missed it.) I don't see any "R.I.P." listings in the April monthly download. Hopefully, if it is being shown, the listings will be updated (or, we might be told here?). I've missed about half of the R.I.P. episodes, primarily because the listings didn't explain what "R.I.P." was, so I didn't make a deliberate effort to record any, until after I'd accidentally recorded one, and got around to viewing that recording.

I had the same problem. TCM somewhere on there website has the R.I.P. videos . I think they have all 13 on line but I don't know how to set-up a link to them.

What is Stopover in Hollywood about?

 

Well, I could say "It's about 16 minutes," but I wouldn't do that!

It's about movie-making, mixing the "real world" (outdoor shots) with the "reel world" (sets); also, you get to see the freeways and cars of the time ('60s) - and in fairly decent color.

Looks like Hal Roach was ribbing his distributor Louis B. Meyer by giving Billy Gilbert's Schmaltz character the first names Louis and Meyer. Meyer was very sentimental and often associated with the "schmaltz" in MGM's films.

do you remember when Another Wild Idea aired,?

 

Had to go hunting for my DVD (date-imprinted), since it didn't turn up on the lists from MGMWBRKO: Seems it showed on 9/23/06 - one of those that either just didn't get listed or was substituted and I got lucky! If you're hunting it in your files, hope that helps.

Has anyone ever seen that 1932 short, Hollywood Handicap?

 

The only Hollywood Handicap I've seen showed most recently, apparently, on the Day of Shorts back on September 15. That one's directed by Buster Keaton, not starring him, with the same group of black entertainers (and the same horse -?-) that contributed to "A Day at the Races," it looks like to me. It's from 1938, and it was NOT color as listed on the schedule.

I would love to see the Ripley's Believe It Or Not newsreels. Are they shown as One Reel Wonders? I'd also like to know if anyone has information on how many were made.
