TCM Fan Favourites Round 3

If you pay attention to Turner Classic Movies programming, then you are probably familiar with the "Fan Favourites"segments in which TCM fans talk to Ben Mankiewicz about one of their favourite films. The first batch aired this last November and included Aurora--better known as Citizen Screen (who introduced Meet Me in St. Louis), TCM Party co-founder  Paula Guthat (who introduced The Lemon Drop Kid),  Miguel Rodriguez of the Horrible Imaginings Podcast (who introduced The Thing from Another World), and TCM Party regular Joel Williams (who introduced Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid). The second batch aired just this past April and included Christina Rinaldi introducing Footlight Parade, myself introducing A Hard Day's Night,  Donna D'Andrea introducing The Way We Were, and Steve Zeoke introducing The Defiant Ones.

Yesterday Turner Classic Movies announced on Google+, Twitter, and Facebook that they are looking for four more classic film buffs for another round of "Fan Favourites". If you are interested, they have a form to fill out in which you give your name, your email, your favourite film, and why you love it so.

If you would like to talk about your favourite film with Ben Mankiewicz, I encourage you to submit your favourite movie to TCM and why you love it via the above cited form. I really had a lot of fun doing my Fan Favourites segment. The folks at Turner Classic Movies are very nice and Ben Mankiewicz is very easy to talk to. I will tell you that you will want a hardline connection to the Internet (WiFi will not do) and a place with plenty of natural light.

Anyhow, to any fans who want to be on TCM fan favourites, good luck!
