The complete list for the actors to be celebrated in the annual Summer Under the Stars festival on TCM this August is now available!
Here are the actors to be celebrated this August, in date order:
This is a terrific list, with many personal favorites including MacMurray, Fontaine, Blyth, Scott, and Crain.
I'm also glad to see an early Joan Fontaine film I've never seen on her list, MUSIC FOR MADAME (1937). And ESCAPE (1948), with Rex Harrison and Peggy Cummins, looks interesting too.
Gregory Peck's day will include the rarely seen THE MACOMBER AFFAIR (1947)! It's a very interesting movie costarring Joan Bennett and Robert Preston.
The complete official schedule isn't available yet, but many of the titles are now listed at the TCM discussion forum.
For anyone who's curious about which actors have been part of Summer Under the Stars in recent years, here are the lists for 2010, 2011, and 2012.
I'll be posting more details on the August schedule at the end of July. In the meantime, Eleanor Parker is the Star of the Month for June and Paul Henreid will be celebrated in July.
