Hello from the 2013 TCM Classic Film Festival in Hollywood!
This is my third time here at the Festival, or the TCMFF as us denizens refer to it. We’re psyched to the limits for things to get underway today. However, decisions must be made. So many great films and guests. If the Festival stretched out over three weeks we could see them all. But—- it’s only four days.
Today’s dilemmas include deciding between a poolside screening of SOUTH PACIFIC, Stanley Kubrick’s noir heist film THE KILLING, Ernst Lubitsch’s NINOTCHKA, a Hope/Crosby road picture, FROM RUSSIA WITH LOVE, David Lean’s SUMMERTIME, and a fairly obscure, 1930s crime picture with the intriguing title, SAFE IN HELL.
What to see? If your senses have ever been overwhelmed at a bakery, you’ll know how I feel.
More about the Festival in my next on-the-scene summary.
And this is just the FIRST day….
