    TCM Summer under the Stars lineup

    As PeterG said in the movies thread, people seem to like threads devoted to TCM, so I'm setting up a new one for next month's Summer under the Stars. Lineup is here: http://summer.tcm.com/files/SUTSschedule_2013.pdf

    As I've really been getting into British films lately, I'm thrilled about Alec Guinness, Maggie Smith, and Rex Harrison! Bummed about no Gene Kelly or Jimmy Stewart, though. They're two of my perennial favorites, and their movie marathons are always good, when they get them.

    Should I feel shame for never having heard of Ramon Novarro, Ann Blyth, Glenda Farrell and Jeanne Crain? And I know the name Wallace Beery, but can't name one of his movies without looking at the list. for a Hattie McDaniel day as I'm unaware of any movie she was in other than Gone With The Wind. But unfortunately I don't get TCM for free anymore, so I will have to live through the rest of you to know more about the movies I'll be missing come August!
    It's official. I am madly in love with Meryl Davis.

    I feel like I'm in a dream. But it can't be a dream because there are no boy dancers!

    What a fun lineup - interesting to see the obvious movies, but lots of others that likely haven't not been widely seen since they were first released - printing off the list!

    PeterG, my favourite Jeanne Crain movie is State Fair - the second and best version from 1945 - she's fabulous in it (although her singing voice is Louanne Hogan).

    "Leave Her to Heaven" - movie with Jeanne Crain and Gene Tierney. Great flick!

    I saw that a long time ago, so I googled her: https://www.google.ca/search?hl=en&s...mg.vZiqK4Czf8M

    Oh yeah, I remember her now! Haven't seen anything else she was in though (I think).

    My local library doesn't have this movie, but I've got about ten other library systems to choose from, I'm sure one of them will have it.

    If I may gush I'm no fan of musicals but happened to catch State Fair (1945) on TCM a few years back when I was on my own working in another city and I guess I got all mushy about it, and also loved the innocence in the whole thing while I was deep into some heavy stuff at work. I ended up buying the DVD, and the soundtrack (Rogers and Hammerstein!), and hunted down the original novel on which it was based. Then, call me totally crazy, I talked my husband into attending the Iowa State Fair, and as part of the trip we drove the route that the Frake family takes to the fair. We ended up having a great time (thank you indulgent husband!), and every now any then I still put on the movie or the soundtrack when I need a little escape from modern life.

    Hope you manage to find a copy and that you enjoy it.

    I always love SUTS. It's nice that they are not just putting out the same movies each time.

    Thanks for sharing this. Friends are always suprised I never use netflix. But with TCM in Feb, and my carrier provides 2 free HBO weekends every year (Nov and Jun) - I record tons of movies and takes months to see them all (great that TCM is not HD, so can record 40 or more movies).. I still have a couple movies from TCM this past Feb to watch.

    I'm a bit surprised that they didn't include Esther Williams in this summer's line up.

    Jeanne Crain also played the title role in Pinky, playing a light-skinned black woman passing for white!! The movie is good, but the idea that Jeanne Crain is a black woman is hilarious!!

    I love Mary Boland; she's just about my favorite part of The Women, and that's something in that cast. I haven't seen very many of the ones on her list.

    I'm glad to see one of my favorite guilty pleasure movies, Imitation of Life, is included for Lana Turner.

    Last night I watched Letter From An Unknown Woman (1948), starring Joan Fontaine and Louis Jordan. I usually don't get into love stories, but this movie was AWESOME!! If you've never seen this movie, put it on your must-see list (especially if you like love stories).
