TCM Film Festival Schedule 2019

Chinese

Thursday Night of the TCM FF

Ocean’s 11 Themed Party
When Harry Met Sally Opening Night Red Carpet  X
Dark Passage
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.

Mogambo
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
The Clock
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
Republic Serials

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
Steel Magnolias
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)
Winchester 73
Goodbye Mr. Chips  X
Desert Hearts

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
Double Wedding
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.

Father Goose
Love Affair
Tom Mix Double Feature
All About Nora  X
Working Girl
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.

Blood Money
Nashville
Wuthering Heights
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
Indiscret
Star Wars
Samson and Delilah
Escape From New York  X
Waterloo Bridge

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

Hello Dolly
The Defiant Ones
Mad Love
Holiday  X

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
Magnificent Obsession

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.

Marty
The Killers (1964)  X
Cold Turkey

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
Buck Privates
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.
