Cary Grant Found! August 21 on TCM Summer Under the Stars

Aug 20 2011

Saturday’s post: Montgomery Clift

First, an unrelated apology: I received an email from a reader in India yesterday wondering why none of these movies were on their TCM. I’m based in New York and so any time I post a TCM schedule it will be for what TCM is airing in the U.S. Even the TCM Canada schedule will have differences day to day, so I’d imagine TCM India is vastly different. I added a note about this being the TCM-US schedule down beneath the listings, right after I mention that all quoted times are EST.

Sunday on TCM it’s 24 hours of Cary Grant on Summer Under the Stars, a perfect selection for a day TCM usually programs family fare–the kids should see all of these! The adults on the other hand have probably already seen most of them, many times, especially on TCM where Cary Grant is almost always on the regular schedule (especially with Betsy Drake lately!).

At least TCM doesn’t pitch a shutout on Grant’s movies for Alfred Hitchcock the way they inexplicably did for Jimmy Stewart (and that was on Hitch’s birthday!). Whether you’ve seen them all already or not the schedule is absolutely packed from 3:30 in the afternoon until the very end with big-time classics fans will enjoy viewing again and again. The entire schedule of TCM Cary Grant movies for Sunday the 21st follows, enjoy:

I’ve always been a fan of the in-your-face head shots used the the 1934 Ardath Famous Film Stars set of tobacco cards. While I love all 50 cards in the set I always found their card for Cary Grant to be one of the best of the period picturing him:
