Thank you for posting the list of upcoming shorts! I subscribe to the Now Playing guide and I've always wished they would publish the shorts as well. Thank you so much for posting these!


The one thing: I wish TCM would show the movies that go with the featurettes. For instance, "The Moonshine War". I'd love to see this movie--mainly because I'm a fan of Patrick McGoohan (Number 6!), so seeing the featurette is like a little teaser of a movie that's not being shown.


But besides that, thank you for posting these!

My profoundest gratitude for these listings. Glad I didn't miss too many after they started. I didn't know about the forum till a couple of weeks ago. I've tried to find DVDs of Todd/Pitts, as well as The Boy Friends - no go. "Hallmark" shows at the end, but apparently they haven't been issued. Does anybody have good news about their availability? I got about half the T/P ones (so far, if more are to be shown), but only four of the BF shorts (again, so far). I had never even heard about The Boy Friends till a little over a month ago - and I'm a retired school teacher, not a teenager!

Thanks for any help.

Got a tip while on another thread --

If you haven't already seen it, check the TCM schedule for Sept 15-16.

24 hours of shorts! All kinds, from silent comedies through patriotic and foreign, from 6 AM to 6 AM! Wow. My thanks to deadendkid for tipping me off on this one.

A question for MGMWBRKO or any other "insider" out there: has the schedule for "Behind the Camera: The Shorts Circuit" on Sept. 15 been finalized? TCM's online listings suggest that some of the originally-scheduled titles are being replaced.

I recently watched Six Hits and a Miss (it's included on The Man Who Came to Dinner DVD) short. Does anyone know the names of the singers in this group? Does anyone know Ruby Keeler's affiliation with this short?

Yes, that's definitely the group's name. They sang in a bunch of musicals for Twentieth Century-Fox and MGM. They're in Babes on Broadway and the "I Got Rhythm" number in Girl Crazy among other flicks. I was hoping to discover the individual names of the vocalists.


The second question was derived from the opening credits of the short which acknowledges "Ruby Keeler and Paul Draper for their contributions", but it doesn't state what the contributions were. IMDB says that Miss Keeler is one of the featured dancers, but I believe this is incorrect; at least the dancer doesn't look like Miss Keeler.
