Quick Preview of TCM in August: Summer Under the Stars

The lineup for this year's annual Summer Under the Stars festival was announced this week by Turner Classic Movies.

Although we now know the stars to be honored, the schedule itself is still a work in progress, with a number of blank spaces throughout.

I anticipate that the complete schedule will appear soon at TCM's Summer Under the Stars microsite, which as I write is currently blank. In the meantime, a partial preview of the films on the schedule may be found here.

Each of the stars listed below will be honored with a 24-hour marathon in August.

AUGUST 1: ELVIS PRESLEY

AUGUST 2: JEAN ARTHUR

AUGUST 3: SIDNEY POITIER

AUGUST 4: RUTH ROMAN

AUGUST 5: ORSON WELLES
