Latest 2023 TCM Classic Film Festival Announcements

Today Turner Classic Movies announced several interesting titles for this April's TCM Classic Film Festival.

Here are the newly announced films:

*ONE WAY PASSAGE (1932), the pre-Code classic starring William Powell and Kay Francis

*THE WISER SEX (1932), a pre-Code I've never seen starring Claudette Colbert and Melvyn Douglas, with a supporting cast including Franchot Tone - this is the kind of film which is typically a festival "sellout"!

*OLD ACQUAINTANCE (1943), an 80th anniversary showing starring Bette Davis and Miriam Hopkins (Update: This film is no longer on the schedule, but THE OLD MAID starring the same actresses will be shown instead.)

*THE RED SHOES (1948), a 75th anniversary showing of the Powell-Pressburger masterpiece starring Moira Shearer, which I was fortunate to see at UCLA several years ago -- and would love to see again

*IKIRU (1952) directed by Akira Kurosawa

*AIRPORT (1970), which will be shown in 70mm; I had a great time seeing this at the Egyptian Theatre nearly a decade ago and, similar to THE RED SHOES, I'd love to experience it again

*STAND AND DELIVER (1988) - a 35th anniversary screening

The complete list of announced films to date has a page on the festival website.

The TCM Classic Film Festival will take place in Hollywood from April 13th to 16th, 2023.

I was so happy to learn they are showing Stand and Deliver. Even before I had a personal connection to the film, it numbered among my favourite movies. I always want to go to TCMFF, but the fact that they are showing it makes me really want to go this year. I hate that I will miss it.
