It’s that time again. The TCM Classic Film Festival, y’all.

If you want to see restored films such as, “Badlands,” “The Great Escape,” “Giant” with James Dean lookin’ fine as all get out, and Buster Keaton’s classic, “The General,” this is the place to be.

Anyone doing a denim story or denim photo shoot should know this film as a reference.

If you want a fashion fix go see, “My Fair Lady,” “Bonnie and Clyde,” “A Room with a View” (my favorite film, with Julian Sands speaking after!)

If you want big Golden Age of Hollywood musicals they got, “South Pacific,” “On the Town,” “Guys and Dolls,” “Flying Down to Rio.”

Wash those men right outta your hair… One of the few Hollywood films that dealt with racism directed at Asians, in a musical no less.

Gay men, they got “Funny Girl,” and “Mildred Pierce,” OH-KAAAAY. Not to mention all the guests, everyone from Max von Sydow to Eva Marie Saint, to Jon Voight (speaking after “Deliverance,” insert dueling banjo music here.)

How many editorial spreads and collection inspiration feature Hitchcock blondes? Too many to count.

I wish I could just camp out and watch them all!
