Quick Preview of TCM in June

June is right around the corner, and here's a quick look at what's ahead next month on the Turner Classic Movies schedule.

I'm especially delighted to say that the one and only Cyd Charisse will be the June Star of the Month. Approximately 20 Charisse films will be featured on Tuesday evenings.

Even better, there are a couple real rarities on the schedule, TWILIGHT FOR THE GODS (1958) and THE MARK OF THE RENEGADE (1951). I'm especially excited about the latter film, which costars Ricardo Montalban, Gilbert Roland, and Andrea King.

The June Noir Alley schedule will feature POSSESSED (1947), WALK A CROOKED MILE (1948), THE BLUE GARDENIA (1953), and SHADOW OF A DOUBT (1943).

SHADOW OF A DOUBT overlaps with "Hitchcock Binge-Watch Weekend" on June 26th and 27th, which sounds like a lot of fun! The Silent Sunday Nights franchise will be showing Hitchcock's THE LODGER (1927) on the 27th to fit into the theme.

I'm delighted to say that one of my favorite 20th Century-Fox musicals, MOON OVER MIAMI (1941), will be shown in prime time next month.

The June Spotlight theme is Juvenile Delinquents. There are some fun titles on the schedule like HIGH SCHOOL CONFIDENTIAL (1958) with Russ Tamblyn and HIGH SCHOOL HELLCATS (1958), which costars Tamblyn's SEVEN BRIDES FOR SEVEN BROTHERS (1954) dance partner, Nancy Kilgas.

TCM will also be showing a complete run of MGM's Andy Hardy films spread over two days in June, and Father's Day will be celebrated on June 20th.

Other June multifilm themes include Jane Austen, the beach, "deadly domiciles," ghosts, 1939 crime movies, and separate days celebrating weddings, honeymoons, and having babies.

I'm especially excited about a prime time tribute to actress Florence Rice on June 7th. That's certainly the kind of programming only found on TCM.

Additional filmmakers receiving multifilm tributes in June include Rosalind Russell, Paul Newman, Cary Grant, Dean Martin, Eleanor Parker, Janis Paige, Judy Garland, Ruth Hussey, Ralph Bellamy, Jane Russell, and Olivia de Havilland. The latter celebration begins on the evening of June 30th and runs overnight into Olivia's July 1st birthday.

I'll have a more detailed look at the June schedule at the end of this
month, which is currently featuring "Movie Roberts" as the "Stars of the Month."
