Charles Laughton Found! August 7 on TCM Summer Under the Stars

Aug 04 2011

Yesterday’s post: Lucille Ball Centennial (TCM August 6th)

I can’t complain too much about TCM’s Summer Under the Stars coverage of Charles Laughton. They hit most of the high spots including The Private Life of Henry VIII (1933), Mutiny on the Bounty (1935) and The Hunchback of Notre Dame (1939), though there are some notable omissions (Ruggles of Red Gap [1935] and Witness for the Prosecution [1957] jump to mind).

Enjoy Charles Laughton on TCM all day Sunday:

No special story for today’s collectible, just a pretty old tobacco card featuring a nice color image of today’s star, Charles Laughton. The card is a 1936 Carreras Film Stars tobacco card.
