Carole Lombard Found! August 28 on TCM Summer Under the Stars

Aug 26 2011

Saturday’s post: Linda Darnell

TCM has a great run of Carole Lombard movies airing all day Sunday when the Summer Under the Stars tribute turns to 24 hours of Lombard.

Lots of rare early stuff in the morning before the big titles take over in the late afternoon and evening. Nice to see screwball essential My Man Godfrey get the prime 8 pm slot and To Be or Not To Be before that is, well, it’s the funniest Nazi movie I’ve ever seen–watch that one and remember, it was made in 1942!

The day is just packed with all-time classics and little seen gems, this is what Summer Under the Stars is all about:
