Coming Soon!

It's hard to believe, but it's time to head to Hollywood for the TCM Classic Film Festival!

It's been a wonderful month to be a classic film fan in Southern California, first attending a quartet of films in the Ida Lupino tribute at UCLA, followed by several screenings at the 20th Annual Noir City Film Festival.

Today's schedule is packed with pre-festival activities, including a media welcome reception with TCM executives and talent, followed by get-togethers with my fellow classic film bloggers.

The movies get underway on Thursday evening! My tentative picks from the festival schedule may be found here.

Please follow me on Twitter for "as it happens" coverage, including photos, then look for in-depth blog coverage on the festival beginning next week!

An overview of the May Turner Classic Movies schedule will be posted here while I'm away, as well as a post with information on TCM's new "Mad About Musicals!" online course scheduled for June, so please check back periodically for new content while I'm at the festival.

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

*Complete coverage of the Arthur Lyons Film Noir Festival, which takes place in Palm Springs, California, from May 10th through 13th; be sure to check out the terrific schedule!

*A review and giveaway of Kino Lorber's Blu-ray release of BOMBSHELL: THE HEDY LAMARR STORY (2017)

*A Visit to Iverson Ranch, a location seen in countless movies for decades

*A Visit to Oakwood Memorial Park Cemetery, the final resting place of both Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers

*A Visit to the Hollywood Museum, currently featuring an Annette Funicello exhibit

*Numerous reviews of DVDs and Blu-rays from Kino Lorber, Olive Films, and the Warner Archive

*A review of the latest Marvel film, AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR (2018)

*An Around the Blogosphere link roundup

*A long-overdue photo post on last summer's visit to the Walt Disney Family Museum in San Francisco

*And the debut of my new monthly column on Westerns at the Classic Movie Hub website!

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

Have a blast at the TCM film festival! Say hi to mutual friends from me, and I'll be looking forward to your coverage of it all. I'm also really looking forward to your write up on Iverson Ranch.

Hope you’re enjoying the TCMCFF. I looked at flights to Palm Springs for the Noir festival but ultimately decided I should go to work some this month. I’m looking forward to your WDFM review (which I forgot to ask about when we met).

Thank you all! Definitely busy and happy, Caftan Woman. :)

Thanks, Deb, was thinking of you when I was at the Egyptian! I will probably be posting the Iverson photos after next week's festival in Palm Springs. So much blogging to do and so little time LOL. Appreciate your interest!

Seth, I'm also hoping to finally get that WDFM post up by sometime in June, exactly a year after our visit! Loved being there so much. Hope you can visit the Palm Springs fest in a future year!

Best wishes,
