Dear Knitster:
I knew that the gods of TCM programming were at work for you last night when I happened to see that one of our mutual favorite films, The Ghost and Mrs. Muir (1947), was finally scheduled to appear at long last on TCM. I am hoping that you felt your body and soul healing as you sailed away to Gull Cottage and what "Lucia" remembered as a "half-remembered dream." Be well--we need you.

Hello all-

The TCM Film Festival schedule is up and running on the site and I believe they will put up a printable version later this afternoon.

Thank you, Alexa! The Print Schedule button works. Go to TCM Festival, then click on Schedule, and the Print Schedule icon is to the right of the days.

Because certain geeks need to agonize from now until the beginning of the festival about exactly which movies we want to see most!

I'll know you'll be working during the festival, but here's hoping you can fit in a favorite movie or two.

I am so happy about all the films and panels, and I'm looking forward to seeing Paula Prentiss and Merrie Spaeth introduce The World of Henry Orient! , and Thelma Schoonmaker introduce A Matter of Life and Death.
I also plan to show up to see Maureen. I know you have been hard at work on all these preparations!

Just saw that fabulous Word of Mouth including June Allyson, June Lockhart, and Margaret O'Brien. Whomever had the presence of mind to ask them all about Mary Astor deserves a big round of applause! :lol:

Kingrat-

In all 4 years, I have managed to squeeze exactly ONE movie and that is because Leonard Maltin (who I escort every year) stayed for it. That movie was the documentary on Baby Peggy - The Elephant in the Room!

Otherwise I am running behind Leonard and his wife Alice and making sure that they are happy.

I will definitely make time for our SILVER SCREEN guys and gals though.

We are frantic here with preparations and last minute celebrities !

I got to attend the GWTW fest in Atlanta, thanks to TCM, a few years ago (for the 70th Ann.) so I know it will be a blast. I truly regret being unable to attend the Classic Film Fest yet again. :( :(

Best wishes for another smashing success and let me add to you and all at TCM:

Happy Twentieth Anniversary to the BEST Network in the World!!!

Congratulations on a much-deserved award. Showing The Story of Film was a great idea, with so many accompanying films. Viewers like me suddenly had immediate access to films unfamiliar to us, and whether or not we agreed with Mark Cousins' ideas, we began thinking about our own versions of the story of film.

We know how much hard work goes into running the network and the festival, and we appreciate it greatly.
