Neko Case Profile

Neko Case, TCM Guest Programmer for December, proves to be an ardent classic film fan. As she explains to host Robert Osborne, she had a grandmother who shared her love of movies as Neko was growing up. Born in Alexandria, Va., Case developed a following with her "country noir" style in Vancouver, Seattle and Chicago before widening her audience with international tours and appearances on network talk shows. Her latest album, Middle Cyclone, debuted earlier this year at No. 3 on the Billboard charts.

A Woody Allen fan, Case chooses Radio Days (1987) as her favorite Allen film with its "celebration of the entertainment industry." Elia Kazan's A Face in the Crowd (1957) remains "shocking" to her in its satire of the corruptive power of television. She admires Orson Welles ("a force of nature") and Joseph Cot- ten ("the foxy Everyman") in Carol Reed's The Third Man (1949). The Picture of Dorian Gray (1945) casts a spell on her with its Oscar Wilde dialogue and appeal to "art-history nerds." A bonus in Case's selections is a collection of Dogville shorts from the 1930s.
