TCM Special Theme: Movie Accents: The Transatlantic Accent & Real PeopleTCM, beginning at 8pmCatch a Classic!Get ready to hear more accents in tonights four-film lineup that continues Turner Classic Movies monthlong Tuesday night look at notable instances where actors have adopted accents for their roles. The first two films feature the Transatlantic accent, also known as the Mid-Atlantic accent, which, while sounding vaguely British, is not a native or regional accent used anywhere. It a form of British accent that was adopted by members of the American upper class and entertainers when it came to public speaking, acting or in other areas of their public lives. Regarded as a prestigious-sounding accent often associated with elite people and characters from the Northeast, the Transatlantic accent can be heard a lot in early Hollywood films, especially in titles from the 1930s and 40s, when studios encouraged actors to learn it. Two of the most well-known acting practitioners of the Transatlantic accent were Katharine Hepburn and Cary Grant, and youll hear both of them in tonights first film, the 1940 romantic comedy classic The Philadelphia Story. Grant appears in a roundabout way in the next film, the 1959 romantic comedy Some Like It Hot, in which Tony Curtiss character, Joe, adopts a phony, Grant-like Transatlantic speaking voice when he tries to pass himself off as a millionaire. The reaction of his friend Jerry (Jack Lemmon) can tell you where that accent stood by the time of this film when he says, Where did you get that phony accent from? Nobody talks like that! The evenings last two films are biopics featuring actors delving deeply into portraying real-life personalities whose lives, and accents, were far removed from their own. First, Ben Kingsley, who comes from English and Indian descent, gives a Best Actor Oscar-winning performance as Mahatma Gandhi in the Best Picture Oscar-winning 1982 feature Gandhi. Then, Illinois native Gary Sinise delivers an Emmy-winning performance as the titular former Alabama governor in George Wallace, a 1997 biographical TV miniseries directed by John Frankenheimer.
