Quick Preview of TCM in September

The September schedule for Turner Classic Movies was recently released!

The September Star of the Month is Sidney Poitier. Over 20 of Poitier's films will be shown on Tuesday evenings in September.

This is Poitier's second time as Star of the Month; he was previously honored in July 2002.

The TCM Spotlight in September is focused on college football, with movies centered around that theme airing on Friday evenings.

There are also special series on James Bond films and the centennial of United Artists.

September's Noir Alley titles are THE BIG CLOCK (1948), NOCTURNE (1946), THE WOMAN ON THE BEACH (1947), and THE HARDER THEY FALL (1956).

Treasures From the Disney Vault makes its quarterly appearance on September 2nd with a fabulous lineup which includes FUN AND FANCY FREE (1947), THE LOVE BUG (1968), THE HAPPIEST MILLIONAIRE (1967), and SNOWBALL EXPRESS (1972).

Here's hoping that Treasures From the Disney Vault will be able to continue on TCM after the Disney+ streaming service begins in November.

The Saturday morning lineup will include Ruth Roman in the serial JUNGLE QUEEN (1945) starting on September 21st.

Filmmakers receiving multifilm tributes in September include Jean Hersholt, Carol Lynley, Akira Kurosawa, Deborah Kerr, Gary Cooper, Ruth Chatterton, Mickey Rooney, and Lauren Bacall.

September themes include teachers, Mexico, MGM musicals, '60s romantic comedies, '60s espionage films, heist films, the American South, and what might be called "madness and murder." There are also many sci-fi and fantasy films airing in September.

I'll be posting more detailed information about the September schedule here around the end of August.

In the meantime, Jane Powell continues as the June Star of the Month, with Glenn Ford celebrated in July and Summer Under the Stars in August.

You might call us a Fun and Fancy Free family. The Disney Vault on TCM is something I look forward to with great eagerness and I echo your thoughts regarding its future on the network.

Your overview has me worried about enjoying the autumn weather as it appears I will be stuck in the house watching movies. Ah well, a girl's gotta do what a girl's gotta do.

I'm interested to see if Disney+ will make available the entire Disney tv library. So many gems there... the Gallegher series alone, starring the ideally cast Roger Mobley, is as good as it gets and deserves to be seen again. A personal favorite of Walt's as well, the Gallegher character starred in 12 episodes total.

Caftan Woman, I really enjoyed FUN AND FANCY FREE when I caught up with it in our local theater a couple years ago. There is definitely a lot to look forward to on TCM this fall.

Glad I could share the good news on the Star of the Month, Lady American. And I'll be watching closely for future news on Treasures From the Disney Vault!

It's definitely going to be interesting to see what Disney Plus makes available, Maricatrin. I'm also particularly interested in new documentaries said to be in the works, such as one based on the INK & PAINT book about the women of Disney animation.

Best wishes,
Laura
