Fox Movie Channel in July: Highlights

Classic films have been growing more scarce on Fox Movie Channel in recent months, but there are still several good films in Fox's July lineup.

Here are some of this month's interesting titles:

...On July 2nd there are a pair of good-looking Westerns, TWO FLAGS WEST (1950) with Joseph Cotten, Linda Darnell, and Jeff Chandler, and SIEGE AT RED RIVER (1954), with Van Johnson, Joanne Dru, and Richard Boone.

...Jacques Tourneur's ANNE OF THE INDIES (1951) airs on July 5th. The cast includes Jean Peters, Louis Jourdan, Herbert Marshall, and Debra Paget.

...Mitzi Gaynor plays entertainer Lotta Crabtree in GOLDEN GIRL (1951). Dale Robertson, Dennis Day, and Una Merkel costar. It will be shown July 7th.

...I'm especially intrigued by the title IT SHOULDN'T HAPPEN TO A DOG (1946) which has a cast of favorites including Carole Landis, Allyn Joslyn, and Harry Morgan. It's on July 9th.

...Gregory Peck is THE MAN IN THE GRAY FLANNEL SUIT (1956) on July 11th. Jennifer Jones costars.

...TONIGHT WE RAID CALAIS (1943) sounds interesting. It's a relatively minor WWII film starring John Sutton, Annabella, and Lee J. Cobb. It's on July 12th.

...The excellent PANIC IN THE STREETS (1950) returns to Fox Movie Channel on July 14th. Richard Widmark and Paul Douglas try to prevent the spread of a lethal disease in New Orleans.

...The Western WHITE FEATHER (1955) stars Robert Wagner, Debra Paget, Jeffrey Hunter, and John Lund. It will be shown July 16th.

...I very much enjoyed THREE BRAVE MEN (1956) last year. It stars Ray Milland, Ernest Borgnine, Frank Lovejoy, and Nina Foch. It's on July 18th.

...July 19th Claudette Colbert stars with Sessue Hayakawa in the WWII film THREE CAME HOME (1950).

...MR. 880 (1950) stars Edmund Gwenn, Dorothy McGuire, and Burt Lancaster, and it airs on July 20th.

...Betty Grable is a PIN-UP GIRL (1944) on July 23rd.

...KISS THEM FOR ME (1957) is one of the relatively few Cary Grant movies I've never seen. It's shown on July 24th. Suzy Parker and Jayne Mansfield also star.

...July 27th two favorites, Tyrone Power and Gene Tierney, star in a fun movie, THAT WONDERFUL URGE (1948).

Happy viewing!
