The complete list for TCM's annual Summer Under the Stars festival is now available! (My sincere thanks to Raquelle and Laura Beth for passing on the schedule info while I was so busy last week.) Here are the actors to be celebrated this August, in date order:
Eva Marie Saint
Gene Kelly's day, incidentally, will be on August 23rd, the centennial of his birth.
The complete official schedule of films isn't posted yet, but many of the titles are now known. I'm especially intrigued by a 1937 version of THE OUTCASTS OF POKER FLAT to be shown on Van Heflin Day; it costars Preston Foster and Jean Muir.
Over at Immortal Ephemera, Cliff, an expert on Warren William, has posted a list of the tentative William titles to be shown.
I'll be posting more details on the August schedule at the end of July. In the meantime, June will focus on Teen Idols and July will be Leslie Howard Month.
