I know we Movie fans look forward to this every year. Just thought I'd separate this from the ongoing Movie thread so those of us that have TCM wouldn't have to go searching through all of that for any heads up of favourites being shown.

W/that said...

Turner Classic Movies' 31 Days of Oscar (http://www.tcm.com/2012/31days/)

Looks like they're doing a theme of Travelling and the movies for each day taking place in a State and/or Location this year. I was wondering what the Theme would be and this one's unique. :)

I like the way that they are doing it this year, in the shape of a passport. But how can we post the schedule here?

I can't wait for this! This coming month and "Summer Under the Stars" are always so fab!
Only thing is, I get so spoiled, lol! When TCM goes back to regular progamming, it's always hard to adjust at first ;)

Well, I'm happy that the New England choices include Come to the Stable. That used to be one of my favorite Christmas movies, but it is so rarely shown these days. I haven't seen it in years and am looking forward to catching it.

I can't believe that they are showing Dragon Seed - that movie is so offensive. Kate Hepburn as a Chinese woman - she so should have known better!

And I nevah, evah get tired of watching The Last Voyage. Can't decide if it's because they actually flooded a real ship or because of Woody Strode's magnificent presence.

Well, once you start going down that road, there are a lot of classic movies that would never be aired again.

I agree that it's offensive by today's standards, and if the movie were made today they'd deserve all the boycotts they got. But it was made in the 1940s, when a. there were few Chinese actors to choose from and b. it was even more important to have a big name attached to a film than it is today.

And frankly, I find the thought of a white woman playing an Asian far less offensive than all the Asian character stereotypes we still see even today. (It's been a long time since I saw Dragon Seed, but from what I recall it was actually relatively 3-dimensional in its characterizations.)

You make good points...

(It's been a long time since I saw Dragon Seed, but from what I recall it was actually relatively 3-dimensional in its characterizations.)I think I read somewhere that Dragon Seed was a groundbreaking film from a feminist POV...

Asian stereotypes today? I haven't seen a lot of Asian films; are there any in particular that you consider offensive in its portrayals?

And I see that I have, once again, missed adding Some Like It Hot to my Classic Movie Collection. I also have blank DVD's in the house too...Grrrr!!

I need to go through that list again later tonight and then mark on the Calendar when I see something I adore, but don't have on DVD. I am determined to get North By Northwest this time!!

Asian stereotypes today? I haven't seen a lot of Asian films; are there any in particular that you consider offensive in its portrayals?

MGM had made "The Good Earth" (based on another Pearl S. Buck novel) very successfully less than a decade before - and I suppose it thought that this was a way to honor the Chinese people as allies in WWII.

I love Kate to death, but Jade does often sound as if she graduated from Bryn Mawr (Hepburn's alma mater) by way of Fenwick. From what I remember of the film, Hepburn does try to hold down her vocal mannerisms and personality - not entirely successfully, of course.

More odd cross-racial casting of Chinese characters involved Walter Huston (John's father and Anjelica's grandfather), Aline MacMahon (who got an Oscar nomination) and Agnes Moorehead, of all people (Endora from "Bewitched")!

The Good Earth rocked as a movie, though. The locust attack still gives me chills. Poor Luise Rainer - too sensitive for Hollywood. But she was better in TGE than she was in the overrated The Great Ziegfeld.

Re: Dragon Seed: I thought Kate was awful in this film, but I have to watch, sorta like watching a gruesome car wreck. But the film works as a propaganda piece very well. Granny Clampett as a Chinese peasant woman...oh, buh-ruther!

I wish they had taken a risk and hired Anna May Wong, the busiest Chinese-American actress in the 30s and 40s. It's just like when they refused to hire Lena Horne to play the lead in Pinky or the role of Julie in Showboat. Hollywood's racial hang-ups were typical of the time, I guess.

But Turhan Bey was hot, wasn't he? He worked his way through some of Hollywood's screen goddesses, including Lana Turner and Merle Oberon.
