WWI on Turner Classic Movies for March

I’m already a little slow in posting WWI-themed movies on Turner Classics for this month–if you missed it, Paths of Glory was on last night as part of TCM’s tribute to the late Kirk Douglas.

That doesn’t mean there aren’t a few movies to be seen later on this month, although they might not reach the same stature of Paths of Glory. As usual, all times are Central. ...read more

Here are this months WWI-themed films on TCM with TCM’s descriptions. As usual, all times given are Central. ...read more

C-SPAN3, December 14

We slip to one World War I program on C-SPAN3 this weekend, and it’s a repeat from last week. Time is Central, of course:

World War I, African Americans and Civil Rights. Airs at 7:45 a.m Saturday morning, December 14th.

There are still four talks, I believe, from the National World War I Museum and Memorial’s annual symposium held in November. That includes Margaret Macmillan’s keynote. For those of you who couldn’t make the symposium, hopefully the remaining sessions will be aired soon. ...read more

WWI on Turner Classic Movies for December

“All is Calm”

Theatre Latte Da from Minneapolis, MN, has made a Christmas tradition of a musical they created based on the 1914 Christmas Truce. This has been very successful for them, and in past years they’ve had a touring company as well as the production in the home theater. ...read more

Butler County and the Great War

It’s good to see there are still some museums in Kansas that are recognizing the Great War, even as the Centennial winds down. The Butler County Historical Society in El Dorado recently opened an exhibit with the above title. The Butler County Times Gazette ran a few photographs from the opening: ...read more

WWI Innovations

We’ve always tried to post the Educator’s Newsletter created by the National World War I Museum and Memorial. We do so again with this month’s newsletter, with the above title:

We’ll also add to this post that the Museum and Memorial held its annual symposium this past Friday and Saturday with the theme: 1919: Peace? All sessions were taped for later viewing on C-SPAN, probably early in the new year. The sessions were excellent, so you probably won’t want to miss them, and we’ll try to give you some advance warning as to when they will air. ...read more
