We had grand time taking over the @TCM Twitter handle during the Turner Classic Movies Movie Night Menus Marathon. The fans who watch TCM and tweet along to the films are witty, erudite, and downright friendly. It's like MST3000 as live stand-up comedy with good friends.
The evening started-off with 1933's Female, a pre-code drama starring Ruth Chatterton and George Brent that features incredible Deco interiors, enviable costumes, and hilarious gender-swapping roles. Viewing it for the first time, as many viewers were, it is a revelation in just how off-color pre-code films can be. We tweeted along at @wTheDarlingtons and then switched over to the @TCM handle for The Thin Man.
We were making martinis behind the scenes, natch, as fans swarmed the twitter feed to quote lines, note a bit of trivia, or engage in sparkling banter. If there's one takeaway, it's that The Thin Man inspires.
Did you catch the ad for the book? We hope to do another twitter takeover and we'll definitely see everyone on twitter as TCM runs more movies from Movie Night Menus!
