The ultimate thing this year at the TCM Classic Film Festival (TCMFF) once again will be sharing the Festival with my 16-year-old daughter Jasmine as TCM Social Media Producers. Details on what we're doing this year are here. Also this year, TCMFF will be something of a family affair as my wife Mary will be attending for the first time. In years past, her work schedule wouldn't allow her to attend. Of course, hanging out with all my old movie cronies and meeting new ones is always high on the list as well.

What follow are the five events I am looking forward to most:

5. Really tough call. Probably have a four- or fiveway tie here, but since I have to choose. I'm going to say, He Ran All the Way mostly because my picks seem to be decidedly light on Film Noir this year. Hopefully, Sunday TBDs will help.

4. The Conversation with Francis Ford Coppola 

3. Dead Men Don't Wear Plaid with Carl Reiner

2. Endless Summer with Bruce Brown

1. The Manchurian Candidate with Angela Lansbury
