AUGUST ON TCM-SUMMER UNDER THE STARS

It’s that time of year again!  In the dog days of summer, TCM presents one of its most popular series, shown every August since 2003.  This year, there will be 19 stars having their first “day.”  Several movies shown will be TCM premieres including some that have rarely been seen.  Everyday this month, I will profile the day’s star and some of my picks you ought to see (if you miss the first airing many will be available On Demand for a week).  Also, I will be participating in Journeys in Classic Film’s SUTS Blogathon-my piece will be on August 9th’s star Tim Holt (and my mom also turns the big 6-0!), an actor who mostly starred in Westerns.  I will be taking a look at the non-Westerns he made-which the majority of them will air in primetime.  This is a perfect time to introduce a friend or family member to TCM or any classic movie.

Now to introduce this year’s stars….
