Film lovers, TCM fans and anyone with fully functioning tear ducts will likely be moved by the elegant 2012 installment of "TCM Remembers." The video is set to M83's plaintive "Wait," and includes tributes to French New Wave iconoclast Chris Marker, "A Face in the Crowd" star Andy Griffith, "Marty" star Ernest Borgnine, sci-fi master Ray Bradbury, mega-producer Richard D. Zanuck and many more filmmakers who died this past year. But the video also mourns the loss of something without a screen credit: 35mm.
