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  and Witness for the Prosecution  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.
- Charles Laughton, deservedly, has his own fan site, the very well done Rooting for Laughton. All Laughton, all the time.
- Laughton’s a favorite of mine, besides several articles about specific film titles I recall being quite proud when I posted Charles Laughton – A Biography of His Career on Film and Stage to Immortal Ephemera
- Reviews all over the Classic Movie Search for Charles Laughton titles, especially Witness for the Prosecution, which again, somehow doesn’t air on Sunday. Here are a couple which TCM is showing though: Classic Film Guide on Standby for Action (1942) and Kim Wilson at Classic Film and TV Cafe looks at a classic as Clark Gable Leads a Mutiny on the Bounty
