Movie Calendar

Posted (edited)


This thread was begun in the early hours of June 7, 2004: I had viewed THE LONGEST DAY on June 6, D-Day, and wondered what other films might include specific dates. Quite a few, as it turns out - whether the date itself is shown onscreen or mentioned in dialogue, or portrayed without explicit reference to the calendar date but can be determined by other clues or references. 

By July 15, 2008, we had a film for every date of the year - even February 29 and February 30! The list continued to be refined, with fiction films (or fictionalized treatments of historical events) replacing documentaries. In November 2009, John Drew (AKA Baal_T'Shuvah) set himself the task of creating a calendar where each date was represented by a different film - that's post #543.

As of June 3, 2014, we've reached post #841, THE IMMIGRANT, and a reference to Candlemas, which occurs February 2.


The process of creating this particular list has been a bit inconsistent, so there are certainly errors: I hope to go through the whole list and do some double-checking. Indeed, there are as many as fifty entries imported from the Movie Timeline which, it turns out, may not actually appear in the films cited: I'll be weeding those out, as well as other questionable entries. Do let me know if you catch anything that could be refined.
Following the day-by-day calendar list is a film-by-film list providing the relevant post number where you may find more detail.

(Original post:)

Okay, yet another one of my list ideas.

Caught part of a piece on CBC radio today, three film critics talking about war films in general, and D-Day films in particular. I'd already been thinking I might watch SAVING PRIVATE RYAN tonight, but one of them mentioned THE LONGEST DAY and, never having seen that, decided to opt for it instead.

Which got me thinking. It would be interesting to try and come up with a calendar of films that contain events on specific dates. Not just historical films, but also - even especially - fiction. (No documentaries, though - too easy.)

So I'm going to start such a list here, and encourage people to add a post when a specific date comes up in a film they're watching (or think of): I'll add them to the list as they come in. I'm sure many of the films will cluster around dates like the fourth of July, Christmas, Valentines Day, etc, but I wonder how long it might take to fill up the rest of the calendar.

Anyway, here goes....

June 25th or 26th -- Little Big Man

The dates of the Battle of Little Big Horn. It's a long movie, so you could start it at 10pm the 25th, and it will end around 1am the 26th.

July 30th -- Mission of the Shark: The Saga of the U.S.S. Indianapolis

The date is the torpedoing of the ship. The story is of the sinking of the U.S.S. Indianapolis, the five days that survivors spent in the water, and the Navy's railroading of it's Captain, Charles McVay -- the only captain in the history of the U.S. Navy to be court-martialed for losing his ship. This is a made-for-TV movie available on VHS. Not the greatest of films, but since it looks like adaptations of Dan Kurzman's "Fatal Voyage" and Doug Stanton's "In Harms Way" have stalled, it's the best that's available. And yes, this is the WW2 incident that Quint so vividly details in...

July 4th -- Jaws

June 27 and April 11: The Miracle Worker

October 22: Thirteen Days

Okay, you had me puzzling over for these MIRACLE WORKER scenes, Darrel! But some digging around and I realize the opening scene is June 27. But is the date you have for the closing scene April 11? On one website I find this for April 5; "When Anne led her to the water pump on 5 April 1887, all that was about to change." That date's confirmed at another page here.

Good pick of Oct 22 for the focal point on THIRTEEN DAYS. Nice thing about that movie, it could end up standing in for a number of different days, depending on what doesn't get covered by other movies.

Oct 15 - recon photos

Oct 16 - Kennedy is briefed

Oct 22 - public announcement and quarantine

Oct 25 - DEFCON 2

Oct 26 - Kruschev letter

Oct 27 - U2 shot down, second Kruschev letter

Oct 28 - agreement is signed

I wonder which thirteen of those fourteen days the film-makers are referring to?

And that makes me think of REDS, and the book TEN DAYS THAT SHOOK THE WORLD. Does anybody know DOCTOR ZHIVAGO well enough to pick which particular events from the Bolshevik revolution occur within the film?

June 27 is Helen Keller's b-day. April 11 is Annie Sullivan's. Keller is better known, but Sullivan is the title character of the story, and a great person to remember. I would expect it would more generally fit at June 27, though. But I also like the April 5 connection.

I remember Oct. 22, because that's when it all became public. And I'm old enough to remember the idea that we were in very deep doodoo.

Since Helen's birth actually occurs in the film, it's a keeper. I don't think Sullivan's does (or does it?), and I'm looking for dates that are actually specifically portrayed (or mentioned) in films, so April 5 works better for me.
<< Revised later: the opening scene in The Miracle Worker is not Helen's birth, it is the day when she loses her sight and hearing, at around 18 months of age. I think the only scene in the film that can be dated is April 5, 1887, when Annie takes her to the water pump and finger-spells "W A T E R", and Helen understands. >>

Don't know The Guys, but I'm guessing it's all about the September 11 that took place in 2001.

Are there any films about the September 11 that took place in Argentina in 1973? (Actually, I think one of the shorts in 11'09"01 gets into that, if I'm not mistaken.)

Have I mentioned yet that Die Hard is one of my favorite Christmas films ever?

It's a Christmas party, right? Is it Christmas Eve? Or does it say which day, exactly?

I'm pretty sure it begins on Christmas Eve and ends on Christmas Day, since the basic premise of the film is that Bruce Willis has just flown to Los Angeles to be with his kids for the holiday. But now I'm wondering if maybe, just maybe, the film takes place a few days BEFORE Christmas Eve.

What day did the Beatles play the Ed Sullivan show? Bob Zemeckis's I Want to Hold Your Hand takes place on that day, no?

Fab! I didn't know about this one.

Feb 9 1964 was their first Ed Sullivan appearance, filmed in NYC (so, judging by the IMDb description, this must be the date); All My Loving, Till There Was You, She Loves You at the beginning; I Saw Her Standing There and I Want To Hold Your Hand in the second half.

On Feb 16 they did their second live Sullivan appearance, but filmed before a live audience at the Deauvill Hotel in Miami Beach; She Loves You, This Boy, I Saw Her Standing There, From Me To You, I Want To Hold Your Hand.

I've been thinking about a particular kind of film (or film scene) that's especially fun to fit into this calendar - fictional movies that incorporate historical events. FORREST GUMP brought this to mind, which led me to think of ZELIG. I haven't seen either movie recently enough to remember which specific, dateable events happen in each, but they're a good source, I'm sure.

Some others that have come to mind;

THE SEVEN PERCENT SOLUTION - based on the Nicholas Meyer Sherlock Holmes pastiche, which begins April 24, 1991. (Oops, typo - 1991 should be 1891). I'm thinking there are likely other dates that also come up, as it's one of those books where a chief delight is seeing the author play with history. I don't recall what else happens, but I know Holmes meets us with Sigmund Freud, and I wouldn't be surprised if specific events get played out.

ADAPTATION - ties in with the New Yorker article? And probably other dateable events?

BILL & TED'S EXCELLENT ADVENTURE - don't remember what events they end up part of, but...

CHINATOWN - has a Seabiscuit newspaper headline, though I doubt the date is discernible.


GONE WITH THE WIND - well, I guess it's more in the at-least-quasi-Historical department.

GOOD MORNING VIETNAM - specific events?

INSIGNIFICANCE - the night following the famous photo shoot with the wind lifting Marilyn Monroe's skirt

MY LIFE AS A DOG - ties in with Russian space program?

THE NATURAL - this is a stretch, but one episode is inspired in part byt the Eddie Waitkus shooting

OCTOBER SKY - more space program tie-in? Unless this is actually more of an autobiographical story?

TWIST & SHOUT - doesn't it tie in with the Beatle's Scandinavian tour?

Any others come to mind?

Judging from your Seven Percent Solution example, are you incorporating films that refer to FUTURE events? Kind of like how 2001: A Space Odyssey and Terminator 2: Judgment Day both tell us the dates of specific events (the creation of HAL and the nuclear annihilation of the world, respectively)? I could try tracking down a few such dates, if you like!

Given Ron's no-documentary clause, I'm not sure One Day in September would qualify -- but those Steve Prefontaine movies might (Prefontaine, Without Limits).
