Summer Under The Stars Live-Tweet!

Hey guys! Just a reminder that this coming Monday August 5th, we will be live-tweeting along with 3 Melvyn Douglas films as part of TCM's Summer Under The Stars event. In case anyone wonders "Why him?", Melvyn Douglas was born in Macon! We start at 6pm Eastern with "A Woman's Face" co-starring Joan Crawford. Then it's the 1939 classic "Ninotchka" with Greta Garbo at 8pm & finally 1937's "I Met Him in Paris" with Claudette Colbert.


So if you have Twitter, please follow along - you yourself don't have to tweet, but your Likes & Retweets of our own tweets will be much appreciated! I tweeted Douglas's granddaughter, actress & TCM regular Illeana Douglas - she Liked the tweet, so hopefully we'll see response from her on our content as well! Finally, @LoraStocker of the Raleigh-Durham Backlot chapter created this beautiful graphic for us to use for our own promotion of this event - if you know or are in contact with her, please show some love. This was a lovely gesture on her part!

We also got quite a few tweets and retweets from TCM Backlot RDU Chapter (the NC Triangle Counties of Wake, Durham, Orange & Johnston), who joined in the fun. I picked up some new followers on my Twitter account as well. I'm almost at 500! (Apropos of nothing, one of my followers is Yoko Ono, who I didn't even know was on Twitter till she started following me.)

It went really well Ben! Our tweets got a lot of positive response & interaction. Especially gratified that Illeana Douglas did show up & showed appreciation for what we did to honor her grandfather. We got a nice "pat on the back" message from Yacov as well as from Paul Henreid's daughter Monika! Going in for 3 films/5.5 hours straight was a tad grueling, but we had more than enough engaging & thoughtful content to fill the time. And we gained some Followers, going from roughly 150 to over 200. Doesn't sound like a lot but considering our Chapter is not very Twitter-centric, it was a very nice show of support from that community!


Also a few lessons learned going…

Great! I won't be able to join in with the Susan Hayward live-tweet on August 30 (I'll be at DragonCon!) but I look forward to joining the Melvyn Douglas live-tweet on Monday!
