31 days of Oscar

I've been all around the world this month. Let me explain: During the month of February the Turner Classic Movies channel has been playing "31 Days of Oscar," — 349 films made over 5 decades — all leading up to the Academy Awards at the end of February. Each film they've shown had won some sort of Academy award Oscar. They are breaking the films into locations and they marketing this series on their always amazing Web site with an old school leather suitcase and travel labels. Great idea, don't you agree?

The Ancient Rome day was great—Swords and Sandals! They showed Quo Vadis, Cleopatra (the 1934 Claudette Colbert version, not the Taylor / Burton one), Spartacus, Ben-Hur, and A Funny thing happened on the Way to the Forum. Just another reason why I love TCM!
