Quick Preview of TCM in September

Time for a peek at the September schedule on Turner Classic Movies!

An incomplete schedule is now available containing enough information to post a preview.

Humphrey Bogart will be the September Star of the Month. Over four dozen Bogart films will be shown on Thursday evenings, carrying over into Friday.

The September Noir Alley titles are HIT AND RUN (1957), OBSESSION (1949), known as THE HIDDEN ROOM in the U.S., THE NAKED STREET (1955), and I LOVE TROUBLE (1948).

I really enjoy I LOVE TROUBLE, with Franchot Tone foreshadowing Jim Rockford as Roy Huggins' detective Stuart Bailey.

I like the September Spotlight theme, Radio in Film, featuring a variety of films in which radio features some way in the story. Titles include PROFESSIONAL SWEETHEART (1933), A DATE WITH JUDY (1948), and MY DREAM IS YOURS (1949).

TCM will also celebrate National Silent Movie Day on September 28, carrying over into the 29th. It will include the TCM premiere of Marion Davies in BEVERLY OF GRAUSTARK (1926).

Additional September themes include twins, ghosts, con artists, jungle animals, and department stores.

Filmmakers receiving multifilm tributes in September include Jack Lemmon, Elia Kazan, Bebe Daniels, Sophia Loren, Natalie Wood, Robert Mitchum, and Fay Wray. There's also a day featuring seven of the ten films starring Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers.

Best of all, there's a centennial birthday tribute to Janis Paige, who turns 100 on September 16th.

I'll have more on TCM's September schedule available here around the first of that month.

In the meantime, Dana Andrews will be the July Star of the Month, with the annual Summer Under the Stars festival coming in August.

So thrilled about the Janis Paige birthday celebration! It would be wonderful if they could get a new interview with her. I know she was still performing up until 4-5 years ago.

I hope you'll enjoy lots of Bogie, Lady American, and you have a great summer as well!

Tommy, I'm very pleased to hear about the Paige tribute as well. She's such an enjoyable actress and to celebrate a centennial is very special indeed.

Best wishes,
