Marion Davies on TCM

Post by drednm »

Hi all. I've migrated from TCM and haven't posted on this board in quite a while. Anyway, here's some news.

Marion Davies is finally Star of the Month on TCM in January and will air three of my Kickstarter projects: BEAUTY'S WORTH, THE BRIDE'S PLAY, and LITTLE OLD NEW YORK as well as two of Ben Model's: WHEN KNIGHTHOOD WAS IN FLOWER and BEVERLY OF GRAUSTARK. Ben scored all 5 of these films.

My recent Kickstarter projects have included ZANDER THE GREAT (1925) with Marion Davies, STRAIGHT IS THE WAY (1921) with Matt Moore, THE APPLE TREE GIRL (1917) with Shirley Mason and two translation projects, OTHER MEN'S SHOES (1920) from the Dutch print with Crauford Kent and THE VALLEY OF THE GIANTS (1919) from the Russian print with Wallace Reid.

ZANDER will be screening at the Niles Film Museum in Fremont, CA on December 31, VALLEY is set to screen at the Autry Museum in Los Angeles on February 11. LITTLE OLD NEW YORK recently screened at the Vintage Film Festival in Canada and is on the slate for Kansas Silent Film Festival in February.

I authored THE SILENT FILMS OF MARION DAVIES in 2017 and am working on a new book about Davies. I'll launch my 22nd Kickstarter project in January.

That sounds exciting and fascinating. Would you mind explaining a little bit about what your kickstarter projects entail?

So I assume you're Edward. Anyhow, I look forward to seeing more Marion Davies films.

Yup that's me.

I'm probably done with Kickstarting Davies' films since most of the ones left have already been put on on disk or are tied up by other archives. I know Ben Model is planning one for 2024 and that'll be a goody. I'm working on a new Marion Davies book and will probably Kickstart three projects in 2023. Whether TCM buys them is another story. To date, they haven't bought Davies' ZANDER THE GREAT, which is quite a good film and a nicely tinted print.
