THURS., 2-29


6:15
pm (ET)
Midnight in Paris (2011)
1h 34m | Comedy Fantasy

Gil Pender (Owen Wilson), a screenwriter, who is forced to confront the shortcomings of his relationship with his materialistic fiancée (Rachel McAdams) and their divergent goals, which become increasingly exaggerated as he travels back in time each night at midnight.....Gil, struggling to finish his debut novel about a man who works in a nostalgia shop, finds himself drawn to the artistic history of Paris, especially the Lost Generation of the 1920s.....Gil encounters a group of strange -- yet familiar -- revelers, who sweep him along, apparently back in time, for a night with some of the Jazz Age's icons of art and literature. The more time Gil spends with these cultural heroes of the past, the more dissatisfied he becomes with the present.....

Director
Woody Allen

Cast (TCM schedule gets this wrong, yet again) :roll:
Owen Wilson, Rachel McAdams, Kathy Bates, Adrien Brody, Carla Bruni, Tom Hiddleston, Marion Cotillard, and Michael Sheen.

"The film opened to critical acclaim. In 2012, it won the Academy Award for Best Original Screenplay and the Golden Globe Award for Best Screenplay. It was nominated for three other Academy Awards: Best Picture, Best Director and Best Art Direction
...Richard Roeper, an American film critic, gave Midnight in Paris an "A"; referring to it as a "wonderful film" and "one of the best romantic comedies in recent years". He commented that the actors are uniformly brilliant and praised the film's use of witty one-liners.[30]
In The Huffington Post, Rob Kirkpatrick said the film represented a return to form for the director ("it's as if Woody has rediscovered Woody") and called Midnight in Paris "a surprising film that casts a spell over us and reminds us of the magical properties of cinema, and especially of Woody Allen's cinema."....

Just bizarre. Their cast list is correct, but the schedule listing is obviously incomplete and in a weird order. Their schedule software just picks up the first few cast members listed in their detailed listing, but the detailed listing is complete. It's not alphabetical, and it's not in credit order (per AFI's database), so I don't know what order they use.

For what it’s worth, I fix director and cast list issues (when I notice them) as well other items in the detailed TCM schedules included on my web site. The TCM online schedules are also prone to the occasional missing and duplicate entries with incorrect times that I try my best to rectify based on the information at hand. As another example, notice this Thursday evening at 8 PM ET the scheduled showing of The Quiet Man (1952) is currently missing in the online schedule. If you are seriously looking for accurate information about a particular movie, I would recommend always cross-checking the TCM online schedule against other sources if you can.

I'm pretty sure TCM has shown Goodbye Charlie before (not often).

Thanks for the notice. I double-checked my records and Goodbye Charlie is not present in the TCM schedules.
Later in March we should get some indication from TCM whether they think it is a premiere this time (or not).
Not definitive I know, but another data point. As a Fox-distributed film it would be rare on TCM in any case.

TCM has marked Goodbye Charlie as a premiere in the Now Playing Newsletter that came out today.
Perhaps you saw it on another channel - HBO showed Goodbye Charlie a few times in 2011 and 2012, for example.

No, I did not see it on another channel. (I did years ago on one of the 3 networks, but I'd seen it on since then).

I know I've seen Goodbye Charlie a few times on tv. I think it's been shown on TCM also but it may have also been shown on the Fox movie channel. I've seen it shown either 2 or 3 times on tv in the last decade.

Speak for yourself! LOL. There have been other times I've disputed TCM premieres. They aren't infallible! Just because they say so, doesn't mean it's true.

Goodbye Charlie aired on an extremely frequent basis in the last few years on FXM (or at least it did, since the cable company dropped the channel entirely last year; perhaps the endless repeats of every film did it in). I don't know if it played on TCM before, although many Fox films appeared, if only once, on the channel between 2012 and 2015; it would be nice if they turned up more often....

I was surprised though to hear that it was airing as recently as 2012 on HBO; the family has been subscribed to them for seven years, and outside of a very small group (Journey to the Center of the Earth, Miracle on 34th Street, Some Like it Hot, The Flight of the Phoenix, West Side Story,and James Bond and Pink Panther titles), they rarely air anything before 1975 anymore.

Goodbye Charlie itself is an odd but interesting comedy, with a pretty daring turn from Debbie Reynolds and it also has a very early appearance from Ellen Burstyn (billed under another name). I'm pretty sure that it was Vincente Minnelli's first of only three films that he didn't do at MGM. Several decades later, Blake Edwards did an unofficial remake of it called Switch, starring Ellen Barkin. That version is much harder-edged, and some elements of it are very odd, but Barkin gives a wonderful performance in it. (It also has a hauntingly beautiful cover version of Joni Mitchell's "Both Sides Now" over its opening and closing credits)
