Coming Soon!

What a great couple of weeks to be a classic film fan in Southern California!

The 18th Annual Noir City Film Festival wrapped up Sunday evening, and tomorrow the TCM Classic Film Festival gets underway!

I'm heading to Hollywood bright and early this morning for a full day of pre-festival activities, including the annual TCM press conference this afternoon. The press conference will feature Ben Mankiewicz along with several key TCM executives.

The movies start rolling Thursday evening! My tentative picks from the festival schedule may be found in this post.

Please follow me on Twitter for real-time coverage of the movies, the people, and the places which combine to make up the TCM Festival.

Then look for in-depth blog coverage on the festival beginning next week!

For those not fortunate enough to be attending this year's festival, my latest ClassicFlix column has suggestions for programming a "Best of the TCM Classic Film Festival" lineup at home!

Additionally, tune in to Turner Classic Movies throughout the festival for interviews and other festival coverage which is slotted in between the films on the schedule.

My look at TCM's May schedule is set to run at the end of the week, so check back here during the festival for new content!

In addition to extensive coverage of the TCM Classic Film Festival, there's much more ahead here in the weeks to come, including:

*Coverage of the final evening of the Noir City Film Festival

*A look at TCM's May Star of the Month, Robert Ryan

*A visit to Holy Cross Cemetery in Culver City, the final resting place of many great filmmakers

*A photo tour of Madame Tussauds Wax Museum on Hollywood Boulevard

*A preview of this year's Arthur Lyons Film Noir Festival, being held next month in Palm Springs

*Information on FilmStruck, the new streaming venture from TCM and the Criterion Collection which was announced yesterday

*A preview of the July schedule on Turner Classic Movies


*Numerous Warner Archive DVD and Blu-ray reviews, plus a review of the new Olive Films release of TRY AND GET ME (1950)

*Reviews of the Marvel films THE AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON (2015) and the new CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR (2016), which opens May 6th

*And a giant Around the Blogosphere classic film link roundup!

May will be a busy month here at Laura's Miscellaneous Musings, so please check back often!

Update: The 2016 TCM Classic Film Festival in Review.

I am beginning to think there must be several Lauras!! I cannot see how a single Laura could get so much done (and never mind handling a job and running a home). They do say that women are masters (mistresses?) of multi-tasking LOL.

You must have a cape and superpowers of your own!

I'm just about to put on the kettle and catch up with Age of Ultron. My daughter's friends want her to join them for Civil War, but I overheard her say she's going to see it first with her mom. I'm so happy. Have a new blue shirt to wear for TeamCap.

Thank you, Jerry and Caftan Woman!

I'm slowly but surely catching up!

Caftan Woman, I've been catching up on AGE OF ULTRON bit by bit at lunch this week, and I must say I'm enjoying it a lot more than anticipated, based on the feedback of others. Hope you did too! Hoping to review it over the weekend as well as see CIVIL WAR. Enjoy!

Best wishes,
