Cinecon 41


The 41st annual CINECON, one of the biggest and oldest classic film festivals, has just updated details of this year's event. The festival takes place September 1-5 in Hollywood at the Egyptian Theatre. The full movie line-up has not been announced, but they have confirmed they will show the newly restored and uncensored "Baby Face." Also on the schedule is the 1951 melodrama "I Can Get It for You Wholesale" featuing Susan Hayward and Dan Dailey. This one has been running on Fox Movie Channel lately, and though it isn't Pre-Code, it is waiting for me on my TiVo!

Cinecon programmers usually goes to great lengths to find rarely screened silents and pre-codes, as well as forgotten classic films from 30s, 40s, and 50s. Unfortunately, I won't be able to make it this year, but I'll keep you posted as more information becomes available.

Oh wow, that sounds like such fun. I'd love to attend a festival like this, and gosh, this being the 41st - I'm really out of the loop, aren't I?... Well, I look forward to reading all about the other films that will be included in the festival line-up, plus all the goings-on and events planned for the week. What you've reported so far is a great, inspired start. Thanks!

hey! is the version of "Baby Face" airing on TCM next week (Thursday the 1st) this new restored version, or the old restored version?
