The complete list of the actors to be celebrated in the annual Summer Under the Stars festival on TCM this August was just posted on the TCM message boards!
Here are the actors who will be celebrated this summer with 24-hour marathons, in date order:
It's a nice list with many personal favorites, starting with Dick Powell, Claudette Colbert, and Edmond O'Brien, and it's also a nice mix of "big" names and interesting character actors such as Lee Tracy and Gladys George.
SKYLARK (1941) with Colbert, Ray Milland, and Brian Aherne. I'm hoping to record a better copy of this not-on-DVD film than the one I own now.
I also understand that August will the TCM premiere of the great 20th Century-Fox film noir I WAKE UP SCREAMING (1941), starring Betty Grable and Victor Mature. Many other favorite films are also slated to air in August.
I'll be posting more details on the August schedule at the end of July. In the meantime, June Allyson is the May Star of the Month, to be followed by Rock Hudson in June and Maureen O'Hara in July.
