Turner Classic Movies Salutes the Telluride Film Festival

As the 37th Annual Telluride Film Festival wraps up on Monday, Sept. 6, in Colorado, Turner Classic Movies (TCM) will salute the annual gathering with a 24-hour marathon of films that have been featured at the event over the years.  The marathon’s highlights include such acclaimed films as Tender Mercies (1983), with Robert Duvall in his Oscar-winning performance; Jacques Tati’s delightful comedy Play Time (1967); Akira Kurosawa’s Dersu Uzala (1975); and the popular Ealing Studios comedy The Ladykillers (1955).

“The Telluride Film Festival is an extraordinary event that celebrates new work while also honoring great films from the past,” said TCM host Robert Osborne.  “We’re proud to salute Telluride and its continuing contribution to the heritage of motion pictures.”

TCM’s Telluride salute will kick off Sept. 6 at 8 p.m. (ET/PT) with the network premiere of Make Way for Tomorrow (1937), Leo McCarey’s beautifully made drama starring Victor Moore and Beulah Bondi.  Other films making their debut appearances on TCM are the mountain climbing drama The Challenge (1938) and the Charley Chase short films The Real McCoy (1930) and Young Ironsides (1932).

TCM’s Telluride Festival marathon will also include the silent Russian serial Miss Mend (1926), the Harold Lloyd comedy The Milky Way (1936), Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger’s A Matter of Life and Death (1946 – aka Stairway to Heaven), Anthony Mann’s timely Border Incident (1949) and the French domestic drama Model Shop (1969).
