Thursday Night of the TCM FF
|Ocean’s 11 Themed Party|
|When Harry Met Sally Opening Night Red Carpet X|
|Gentlemen Prefer Blondes|
One of the reasons I try to get the Essentials Pass is so I can attend the
Red Carpet Event.The guests for this are impressive and the Festival Tributes
happen here as well.
|Bachelor and the Bobby Soxer|
|The Umbrellas of Cherboug X|
I’ve never seen this French Musical and it is supposed to have a spectacular color palate,
that should be great on the big screen.
Fridays At The TCM FF
|The Postman Always Rings Twice|
|Merrily We Go to Hell|
|High Society ?|
Classic Noir, Female Directed Pre-code, Non-musical Garland,
or the musical version of The Philadelphia Story with Grace Kelly’s last role.
This is a tough choice. I am open to suggestions.
|Out of Africa|
|Love in the Afternoon|
|Sleeping Beauty X|
I’m interested in the Republic serials, but Sleeping Beauty is my
daughter’s favorite classic Disney. So that will be the choice for now.
|Raiders of the Lost Ark X|
|Broadway Danny Rose|
|My Favorite Wife|
|A Patch of Blue|
Two names decided this for me, Ben Burtt and Craig Barron, consistently
the best presentations at the festival, and they both worked on the film.
There should be some great behind the scenes material here.
|The Sound of Music|
|Escape from Alcatraz|
|Day for Night X|
I’ve never seen Day for Night and it is a movie about movies.
Everything else at this time slot is not a rarity for me.
|Do the Right Thing|
|Road House (1948)|
|Goodbye Mr. Chips X|
I love me a Western, but I also love a good cry.
I think the classic from the greatest year will be my choice.
Saturday At the TCM FF
|From Here to Eternity|
|All Through the Night|
|When Worlds Collide X|
|The Little Colonel|
These are fantastic choices that I hate are up against each other.
I think I’ll end up at When Worlds Collide because
Dennis Miller and Barbara Rush will be there.
|A Woman Under the Influence|
|Kind Hearts and Coronets|
|Tarzan and His Mate X|
|Sleepless in Seattle|
|Fox an Appreciation ?|
Another set of tough choices. Barron and Burtt are back for
Tarzan and his Mate, that gives it the edge for me, but the Fox Appreciation
is particularly timely. I could waiver.
|Tom Mix Double Feature|
|All About Nora X|
|A Raisin in the Sun|
This is a Club TCM Event that I think I am going to make an effort to attend,
otherwise it’s Tom Mix.
|Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid X|
|The Robert Osborne Award|
I want to see Alex Trebeck with Wuthering Heights, and the Osborne Award
is important, but as the founder of The Strother Martin Film Project,
I need to see Butch and Sundance to include it on both of my movie sites and
to honor the man at this Festival.
|The Bad Seed|
|Samson and Delilah|
|Escape From New York X|
This is a no brainer, Kurt Russell and John Carpenter are going to
be at the screening.This is a high priority.
Sunday at the TCM FF
|The Defiant Ones|
I hope to run into my TCM Blogging Friends Kellee and Aurora
and the rest of the online group at Holiday. Cary Grant and Katharine Hepburn,
if my online pals are not at this, someone must be ill.
|Yours, Mine and Ours|
|The Robe X|
I’m not sure, I think The Robe, as a way of acknowledging the passing of
Twentieth Century Fox. If you think I should see the Douglas Sirk picture,
please give me some reasons, I’m persuadable.
|The Killers (1964) X|
Angie Dickinson will be there and Ronald Reagan makes his last screen
appearance. This seems like it will work.
|Gone with the Wind|
|A Woman of Affairs|
|Godfather Part II|
|The Dolly Sisters|
I’m going to ask my daughter what she wants to do here. I’m up for all of them.
GWTW may be the default because of the Festival itself. The Dolly Sisters is
a nitrate presentation, and I have not done one of those yet.
