Jean Gabin Found! August 18 on TCM Summer Under the Stars

Aug 16 2011

Wednesday’s post: Humphrey Bogart

Thursday is one of TCM’s more intriguing selections for their Summer Under the Stars series when it puts the focus on Jean Gabin and features 13 films, all European in origin I do believe. I’m going to direct you immediately to the Classic links below for Jean Gabin as I must plead ignorance, or at least unfamiliarity with Thursday’s schedule. I know many classic film fans have been calling for TCM to air more foreign films, so Thursday should be a nice appetizer for them.

inside ClassicMovieSearch.com:

  • I’m not entirely shocked, but the Classic Movie Search loves the site Films de France for Jean Gabin! They take up much of page 1 of the search, but I found their Jean Gabin biography the best introduction to Thursday’s featured star. Don’t overlook the right column on that page with links to reviews of each of Gabin’s films.
  • Leaving Films de France, the Search does reveal some reviews of Gabin titles airing Thursday. The Stop Button looks at The Grand Illusion (1937, Jean Renoir), which airs at 10 pm EST.
  • Right before that is Pepe le Moko which is reviewed on moviediva’s site.
