Turner Classic Movies Tribute

Mike Matei / March 4th, 2015

A tribute to my favorite TV channel, Turner Classic Movies (TCM). It’s the only channel left that’s dedicated to playing classic movies, un-edited and commercial free. I am not aware of any others. I hope this channel is still around for a long time. Without it, there is nothing on TV to preserve film history in this way.

    Haha That’s my friend Tom at 1:43 being interviewed about his Cartoon Roots blu-ray.

    • March 5, 2015 at 3:39 pm

      James, TV hosts are good and all, but you’re my favourite movie host. For more than just monster movies. You’re a real aficionado, and if anybody ever wants information on a classic film I send them to one of your videos.

        Agreed. You, Mr. Rolfe, are truly one who has passion in this sorrowful world and one who wants to share what you love with all instead of hording it and hiding it away like so many others. Thank you for unknowingly rekindling my love for film and making me remember not all motion pictures are intended to sell you something. Keep up the fantastic work (though I know that’s not needed to be said).

    Awesome. I have wondered whether or not you are a fan of the channel. I, too, always have this channel on. In my basement game room, if I turn on the tv, this is what’s on. I could sit down there all day and night watching.

    The whole pan and scan vs letterboxing issue isn’t outdated at all. We’re currently seeing the same thing happening when companies decide to reformat 4:3 content to widescreen by either cropping or opening the matte. It’s happening to a lot of tv shows that are being transferred to HD. The Wire, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, X-Files etc. and some movies are also having similar things done to them by streaming services. For example, I tried watching Kill Bill Vol. 1 on Netflix and they cropped it from 2.35:1 down to 1.85:1. That means that you’re losing about a quarter of the picture. Same thing happened with Tora, Tora, Tora. It’s ridiculous.

    The good news is that TCM is staying current especially with this new generation already discovering classic movies. There’s fan communities on its website and best of all, they have an on demand app! So in case you just watched one of their movies on the channel and just want to see it again, it’ll most likely be available on the app for one week only. (Or if you live on the east coast like I am, you can stream it on the app during its west coast area! Just saying) I think it’s one network that’s not going away any time soon!

  • March 4, 2015 at 4:57 pm

    I’ve become exposed to a lot of old films through Cinemassacre. I think the classics are safe. 😀

      “an eroic ippo” — This is a great screenname. Wow.

  • March 4, 2015 at 5:08 pm

    TCM has played a major part in my life. It’s the channel where I discovered Alfred Hitchcock and Stanly Kramer, learned about rare cartoons and movies, and brought very interesting facts about production behind a movie. I owe my love for films to TCM.
    They are the number one channel for films they don’t play much on TV.

    Their 31 Days of Oscars marathon I always watch every year. This marathon gave me the chance to watch films that have been on my list for a long time, films like Easy Rider, Close Encounters, Poltergeist, The Great Escape, Grand Prix, It’s a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World, The Music Man, 2001: A Space Odyssey and Barry Lyndon.

    I see myself watching this channel more in the future for the library of classics that they carry and sometime a mix of modern film when they air them.

    Very cool tribute. When I was a kid, having cable TV, I didn’t know there was a channel like TCM (I was too busy watching cartoons). Furthermore, probably through watching your Monster Madness and by way of my uncle I learned about older movies and started watching them religiously.

    Hearing someone say they won’t watch a movie because it’s in black & white always annoys me.

  • March 4, 2015 at 5:56 pm

    There’s a broadcast channel here in Minnesota called Movies! that’s dedicated entirely to old shows and movies. I’ve come across films I’ve come to love like The Ghost in the Invisible Bikini (which is a beach party film that reunites Boris Karloff and Basil Rathbone) and has even had some silent films on there as well. And Godzilla marathons, though only the ones Sony has the license to. It’s a nice alternative for people like me who are unwilling to get a cable subscription. It’s not commercial free, but it’s something at least.

  • calmLIKEaBOB-OMB

    March 4, 2015 at 6:51 pm

    Yeah, I used to watch TCM all the time when I actually had cable(it’s been 5 years now without). I even would subscribe to their monthly guide to help support the channel and I would know what to look forward to every month.

  • March 4, 2015 at 6:51 pm

    just as I’m was watching this, I have TCM on and it’s the movie Night of the Lepus.. the movie about giant killer rabbits.. now that’s a classic

  • MonkeeJuice

    March 4, 2015 at 6:54 pm

    I love Turner Classic Movies and hopefully it doesn’t become like what happened to AMC.

  • March 4, 2015 at 6:58 pm

    I like watching TCM, you also have Fox Movie Channel doing their “retro” block which all those are old commercial free unedited movies before it kicks into the FXM part, over the air has MoviesTVNetwork which are classic movies but with commercial breaks but unedited for time, another one called “decades” which shows old shows/movies, MeTV has Svengoolie showing old movies on Saturday nights

  • Wayne

    March 4, 2015 at 6:59 pm

    Just a suggestion for part of an AVGN episode idea… the older AVGN videos used to be in the 4:3 format. You could create a new AVGN video where someone wants revenge against The Nerd because their parts were always edited/cropped out of the older videos. You could setup why they want revenge and have flashbacks showing the old videos but then edit in (new) widescreen (16:9) sections that show the portions that were cut out and had supposedly featured the person who wanted revenge. A while back, I emailed over a Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde episode idea (not that you even remember it since you get so many emails), and since the original Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde episode was in 4:3 for that game this “edited out revenge” idea would work well with it.

  • March 4, 2015 at 7:05 pm

    Love TCM. Besides Better Call Saul and Walking Dead, it’s the only thing I watch on TV.

  • Uncle Sporkums

    March 4, 2015 at 7:40 pm

    Thanks SO MUCH for highlighting this channel, James! I basically agree with everything you said. You know, I barely watch TV nowadays because of my feeling that there’s nothing good on to pique my interest, yet I basically find most things on TCM worthwhile, so I wonder why I don’t watch it as often as I should. Thanks again!

  • Hanglyman

    March 4, 2015 at 7:47 pm

    I’d never heard of this, but it’s nice to hear of a channel that actually stays true to its original purpose. That it’s commercial free as well is just mindblowing. If I ever watched TV anymore, I’d give it a try. As it is, you can be reassured that I’ve discovered several movies because they were featured here on Cinemassacre, so even though TV is in the past for me, you’re helping keep the spirit alive here on the internet.

  • mcfroogle

    Wow, that channel looks awesome, wish we had it in the UK :-s

  • greedo

    March 4, 2015 at 8:10 pm

    Hey, James, classy tribute to a great channel. Many a time I’ve gone on there, and watched great movies on there. And you’re so right about Robert Osborne. He’s a great host, as is Ben Manciewcz(sp)? These people really love movies, and it shows.

    I especially love those segments in between the movies(both at the beginning, and the end). My favorite one was when they had a segment on Akiro Kurasawa, celebrating his birthday. At the end, Osborne quoted Kurasawa, saying, “All of my films ask the same question, ‘Why can’t people be happy'”?

    I especially love the in-between segments, particularly the one you cited in this thing. I always loved the pan-and-scan explanation, because it gives a good insight into how directors think, and how they see movies. Having said that, I think they run this one a bit too often for my liking. Wish they would run a different segment! Switch it up, a bit TCM!

    Anyway, I was pleased to see this tribute you did. Never did I think I’d see this. Not in a million years. Oh, yeah, one more thing. I remember watching old TV Westerns, and seeing how the screen would be somewhat distorted during the long shots. Like people had been stretched out on the screen. It was weird, but now I totally understand what’s going on, with the whole pan and scan thing.

    • greedo

      March 4, 2015 at 10:56 pm

      Oh forgot to add my two bits on AMC. It’s a shame that they no longer show classic movies. But they had a good mix of classic and modern, until they decided that original shows like Mad Men and Hell on Wheels were more profitable for them. But it just seems that they chase the profits, wherever they find them.

      I guess it’s a matter of those elusive demographics. Same for A&E. They used to be all about making shows dealing with classical music and documentaries, until they realized they could make more of a profit with reality shows. (Which is not a bad thing… but then again, those bozos cancelled Longmire b/c its’ demographic is too old. SMH). It’s a sign of the times. Sad but true.

    • March 5, 2015 at 12:16 pm

      That distorted western sounds like How the West was Won. It may have less to do with pan & scan than it has to do with Cinerama. It’s distorted because it was shot with 3 cameras then projected onto a huge curved panoramic screen. Since modern TVs are flat, the image looks like it curves away from you. Still looks awesome, though.

      • greedo

        March 5, 2015 at 2:54 pm

        Hmm… interesting. Even so, TV tech has changed since I was growing up(and growing up, we didn’t exactly have the newest TV’s in our house). As for the Western, I there were a couple of other Westerns like that, too. Anyway, all interesting stuff. Thanks for the info!

  • tylerdurden389

    March 4, 2015 at 8:53 pm

    Hey James, you forgot to mention how modern movie cinematography is ruining classic film as well. Do some screencap comparisons of the blu-ray releases of older movies to their vhs and dvd counterparts and get ready to see teal, Teal, TEAL!!!

  • Pablo1989

    March 4, 2015 at 9:04 pm

    My TCM dont had host segments, only movies and pause breaks what movies comeing up next.

    😀 Tomorrow gonna air Bruce lee Enter the dragon and Dracula from 1958(olso known as Horror of Dracula) just cant wait see again.

  • Don Skiver

    March 4, 2015 at 9:09 pm

    Yeah…this was a pretty good little tribute to a great channel. TCM is one of those channels that I have had access to sporadically through the years due to the shitty way cable companies package out their channels. There have been times where I had access to it with a low tier package, and other times where I couldn’t get it because I was unwilling to pay more money to upgrade tiers and get 99 out of 100 more channels that I didn’t want to watch.

    You know what? Cable companies are bullshit. Maybe you should do a YKWBS segment on them.

  • Hank Foreman

    March 4, 2015 at 9:20 pm

    Your tribute to Turner Classic Movies is fantastic! Right up there with the Nostalgia Critic’s tribute to Gene Siskel and Roger Ebert (and Richard Roeper to some extent). I hope someone from TCM mentions this the same way Roger Ebert did with the NC’s tribute!

  • March 4, 2015 at 10:56 pm

    I love TCM around Halloween time when they show all the Universal and Hammer horror films.

  • March 4, 2015 at 11:13 pm

    If you guys didn’t get paid for this, you should have. This is the best advertisement possible for this channel.

    March 4, 2015 at 11:14 pm

    I used to have a “Director’s Edition” VHS of Star Trek IV that had a feature with Leonard Nimoy explaining the advantages of letterboxing over pan-and-scan.

    I found part of it on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NDJIhyINWzE

    It’s nice to hear that at least one cable channel hasn’t abandoned its original purpose. I hate going to the house of someone who has cable, turning on Animal Planet (or Ani3al Planet as they write it now), and seeing a show with no animals in it. I didn’t turn on a channel called “Animal Planet” to see some asshole build a treehouse or a swimming pool for some other asshole.

  • March 4, 2015 at 11:46 pm

    This is a great tribute–it highlights what is offered by Turner Classic Movies and emphasizes the rarity of that service. It would be nice to see a similar tribute to other organizations supporting classic movies, such as the Criterion Collection and the American Film Institute.

  • March 5, 2015 at 12:37 am

    Funny that you say TCM is guaranteed to never see a commercial about laundry detergent… there was a literally a laundry detergent commercial on your video before it played. Haha.

  • mmmfloorpie

    March 5, 2015 at 12:45 am

    It’s ironic that TCM is now much loved for showcasing classic movies. It’s named after Ted Turner who was much derided in the 80s and 90s for colorizing classic black and white movies and then broadcasting them on TBS. Siskel and Ebert launched a whole campaign against him and eventually there was a law passed in the US Congress to protect films from colorization.

    You can watch their special show at: http://siskelandebert.org/video/AH4MXGWKMRGH/Colorizing-Hollywood8217s-New-Vandalism-1986

    I remember this channel from the time I was a kid. Cartoon Network and TCM used to have a shared channel space, where CN aired from 06:00-19:00 and TCM got the late night schedule. Now CN runs all day long, so they seperated TCM into a own channel. Haven’t watched TCM much, but then again, I’ll rather have cartoons in the background while doing other things, it always makes the room atmosphere great. The only thing I do remember from that channel is a Tom & Jerry cameo in a musical scene, dancing around with sailors. It was fantastic. I do not remember the title, though…

    • Hank Foreman

      March 5, 2015 at 1:31 pm

      The title is Anchors Aweigh. Gene Kelly’s dance with Jerry the Mouse is the best part of the whole film!

  • March 5, 2015 at 3:27 am

    I risk making myself sound older, but it actually brings a smile to my face to know that there are people in our generation who appreciate these classic films. Much like all of you, my appreciation began watching TV Land on late night Nickelodeon. TCM came next (I was so resistant to Black & White movies/shows when I was a kid), and James sealed it for me with his passion for old horror films. We’ll always have something like TCM, even if I have to open a theater that exclusively screens movies from the Golden Age. Interesting side note: Fantomas (1913) is trending on Netflix. Happy to see that!

  • Sokurah

    March 5, 2015 at 3:49 am

    What James said in the beginning is so true. I consider myself a big movie devotee – I’ve watched thousands of films, and I still watch 1-4 movies each day, depending on the situation. Sometimes a movie is so great that I can’t shift my thoughts away from it even after it’s long over. The art of film has existed for over a century now, and some dumbasses call movies from the 1960’s old… Oh, and those people who “can’t watch b&w movies” – WHY? I haven’t seen a brand new movie that’s really good in years, but I still occasionally watch new movies instead of just pretending they don’t exist, like so many people do with great black and white films. MOST great films are in black and white. After about the year 2000 even the cinematography in most films looks cheap – always those blue tones, overly bright white lights, overused fades, etc. As for TCM, I’ve been jealous of the channel for years as I live in Scandinavia and obviously we don’t have that. Oh, and don’t even get me started on the people who still haven’t realized that widescreen movies on VHS and TV are almost always cropped. If the movie is filmed in 2.35:1, 45% of the image is missing! How can you not notice that from the composition, dumbasses! Oh well, nobody’s ruining my hobby as a lover of film by being ignorant about them, I just hate when something so precious to me is taken to such a “casual” level and treated with complete artistic cluelessness.

      “As for TCM, I’ve been jealous of the channel for years as I live in Scandinavia and obviously we don’t have that.” This isn’t a joke, right? Thus I say unto you: TCM Nordic, brother! I live in Sweden and have had access to TCM for as long as I can remember. When I was a kid it used to come on after Cartoon Network but turned into its own channel a few years later.

    Old-school AMC was the only thing I watched growing up. My favorite actors as a kid were Buster Keaton and Danny Kaye. I also listened to classical music until I was 17 then I integrated into the whatever was the zeitgeist in both music and movies and I became very dumb for several years. In my 30’s I’ve finally recovered somewhat. There is a lot to be said about the classics that is rarely spoken of nowadays. Thanks James!

  • herbsuperb

    March 5, 2015 at 12:35 pm

    I was appalled by the direction that AMC took while I was in college. Used to watch it all the time in high school. Great films, great fun. I knew it was all over when I saw they were going to play the Halle Berry film ‘Catwoman’. How the **** is Catwoman an ‘American Movie Classic’. Anyway, at least they have Breaking Bad, and now Better Call Saul.

    TCM is fantastic. I’ve been introduced to a number of great films by seeing them presented on that channel. Hope they never change. Great tribute James.

  • March 5, 2015 at 3:45 pm

    James. i totally agree with you …TCM and websites like yours keep classic movie and retro culture alive..
    you could do some videos about classic movies (not just the horror genre) that would be great to watch !

  • greedo

    March 5, 2015 at 4:20 pm

    Another thought occurs to me on the whole classic movies. It just seems that there is greater attention to detail with older movies than with their modern counterparts. Filmmakers were like master craftsmen, sculpting their films to perfection. They did the best they could with what little they had to work with.

    As films began getting more complex and effects intensive, that seemed to be lost. Budgets were overblown, and the films started to be more about how many explosions there are, and how many outrageous things can be done and said on camera. Don’t get me wrong, there’s still a lot of good films being made, and a lot of quality performances out there. But it just seems that that attention to detail has been lost. We have the technology to make better films, and it’s disappointing that we don’t see that problem solving approach to filmmaking. At least, not in Hollywood.

  • March 5, 2015 at 5:04 pm

    I often watch old movies at 3am. I get into the stories. Sure they can talk funny, but they’re charming. I get into the story. I appreciate them.

  • Zachary Johnson

    March 5, 2015 at 5:56 pm

    I’m not sure if James or Mike will see this but, I’m from the Chicago area and we have a locally produced tv show called “svengoolie” that shows many classic horror and sci fi movies with Rich Koz as the host. It airs Saturday nights on the MeTV network with one movie being shown per episode and Rich Koz giving really cool information about the movie being shown, the actors and many other neat things. I think Rich Koz maybe one of the last horror movie hosts and it’s really cool to have him local.

    • jubjub

      March 6, 2015 at 3:42 pm

      I was going to mention Svengoolie too. Never heard James mention him, but this is 100% right up his alley. I’ve been watching all my life and now that MeTV is national Sven is no longer limited to Chicago viewers. This month he’s showing King Kong vs Godzilla and a Hammer film Evil of Frankenstein. Set your dvr James.

    After seeing this review, I decided to turn on TCM to see what was playing today. Saw that ‘A Streetcar Named Desire’ was on, which has been on my ‘to see’ list forever. I enjoyed it. Supremely acted throughout. I’ve seen the play on stage before, but never the Vivien Leigh/Marlon Brando film version. I think Kim Hunter turned in my favorite performance as ‘Stella’. Fantastic.

    Thanks James. I love TCM and hope others are inspired to experience all it has to offer.

    Entertainment has been diluted way too much.
    It isn’t just the internet either – there are more channels on cable than ever. The number of video games that are new each month are ridiculous, since indie developers can make their own. Plus all the movies, TV shows, and video games that already exist, and it’s just more entertainment than anyone can handle.
    Sometimes, I do miss the old days when we only had a few TV channels, because that’s how you would find unusual things by flipping the dial that you otherwise wouldn’t discover.

  • jim dove

    March 7, 2015 at 11:18 am

    this is possible the worst tv channel here in the UK on satellite. The bitrate of the channel is appalling, the “widescreen” aspect ratio of movies is all fucked up as in bnot only do you get giant black borders at the top. BUT THE FUCKING SIDE TOO. so its like watching something in a window.

  • March 7, 2015 at 2:02 pm

    Have you heard about El Rey Network? They play almost nonstop grindhouse stuff, lots of martial arts, giallo, and westerns, and also sci fi and horror movies.

  • March 7, 2015 at 6:36 pm

    I stooped watching networks like Boomerang and Turner Classic Movies wean I found over 95% of the stuff I liked on those networks was on Hulu Plus. So now they come me wean I what them to. I well sill buy the Blu-ray or ITunes download for offline viewing if relay liked it.

    I disagree that easy access to many movies will cause people to choose mainstream movies. I think that it makes it much more likely for people to watch old or obscure movies since access isn’t limited to what’s popular, and it’s easier for people to find out about and explore niche genres.

  • March 10, 2015 at 12:45 pm

    TCM for Oldtimers!

  • March 10, 2015 at 1:20 pm

    My favorite channel also. The intros are informative and can be just a great as the films. Plus they always keep the Hammer and Universal films in regular rotation.

  • March 10, 2015 at 1:22 pm

    If TCM goes down, how about the James Rolfe Network?
    Who wouldn’t put THAT on? I already know more about classic (horror) movies than most people, just watching you guys’ five minute video’s.
    Imagine TCM but with optional James and Mike commentaries, full length Monster Madness and trivia documentaries by Cinemassacre.

    I wish I still had TCM where I live. The irony is that when I had TCM I was still a kid and hated it because to me all it showed was just boring old B/W films. And now that I’m older and want to watch those same films out of respect and love for cinema I can’t. Life sure sucks sometimes.

    I agree with you 100%. I would cancel my cable if it wasn’t for TCM. This is the only channel where you could find something great to watch for most of the day. It needs to get more attention than the horseshit that’s in theaters today.

    That’s what the channel TCM stood for and that’s why i never see commercials. I used to work in a nursing home and this and CMT (I live in TX) were all that would play in their rooms. Rarely would i see any of the residents watch any other channel.

    I sort of missed the old TCM. I used to watch it religiously in the late 1990s-early 2000s with all the old trailers, promos, etc.
