Quick Preview of TCM in September

Turner Classic Movies recently released its September schedule.

The September Star of the Month is Gene Hackman. Hackman's films will be shown on Friday evenings in September.

September will also feature a new installment of Treasures From the Disney Vault. The September 8th Disney lineup includes TREASURE ISLAND (1950), THOSE CALLOWAYS (1964), DAVY CROCKETT AND THE RIVER PIRATES (1956), and DISNEYLAND AROUND THE SEASONS (1966).

September will feature multi-film tributes to Preston Sturges, Peter Lawford, Claudette Colbert, Gary Cooper, Lauren Bacall, Grace Kelly, Greer Garson, John Cromwell, Dick Powell, and June Allyson.

Jeanne Crain receives a two-film primetime tribute on Sunday evening, September 4th.

September themes include teachers, horse races, and films with the word "return" in the title. There are many comedies on the September schedule, and there's also a day of all the Falcon Mystery films!

I'll be sharing more detailed information on the September schedule around the end of August.

The current June Star of the Month is Marie Dressler, to be followed by the Olivia de Havilland centennial tribute in July. August is the annual Summer Under the Stars festival.

July 3rd Update: The October schedule is already posted, with Christopher Lee the Star of the Month.
