BIG SCREEN PIC OF THE DAY APRIL 13th, 2014
Gone with the Wind at 1:30pm was an obvious choice for us, mainly because we both love it- the grandeur, the color, the idea of an intermission.
Annstj: Day Four…I’m thinking I would be pretty exhausted by now but it would be a happy exhaustion. We would have started the day at 9:00 am with the absolute Classics of Hollywood The Adventures of Robin Hood at the Egyptian Theatre discussion with Craig Barron Visual Effects Artist and Ben Burtt Sound Designer. We like but would have missed, Sunday in New York, Easter Parade, Fiddler on the Roof, Cat on a Hot Tin Roof and The Quiet Man. Then our last movie of the Festival would have been The Wizard of Oz. Woo hoo then off to the Official Closing Night Party.It would have been four days of meeting bloggers like ourselves that love the classics and the newest movies, don’t care if a movie is in color or black and white and if you mention a name like Clark Gable, Vivien Leigh, Olivia De Havilland, Leslie Howard, Hattie McDaniel, Ann Rutherford, Evelyn Keyes or Thomas Mitchell they know who you are talking about. People like host Robert Osborne that love our film heritage and want to keep it alive and preserved. People that want to hear from the likes of gutsy Kim Novak and Maureen O’Hara if not only to meet them but just to applaud them for their past performances and being who they are and show that they are still loved and remembered. It looks like we missed a great 2014 TCM Film Festival.
