Friday’s post: Debbie Reynolds
Saturday’s TCM Summer Under the Stars schedule goes big for many hours with some of Montgomery Clift’s best, shoot, some of film history’s best, between 1:00 pm and midnight.
The 8 pm spot is owned by A Place in the Sun on Saturday. It’s a movie I like more and more each time I see it and my reading of Dreiser’s An American Tragedy grows more distant. See, I really think the book is superior to the film, but the odds of my re-reading it at this point in my life are slim, while I’ll surely watch Monty, Liz and Shelley several more times in the decades to come!
While I was surprised to see movies like Red River and The Misfits get slotted in the afternoon, I was very happy to see The Heiress scheduled right after A Place in the Sun, when more viewers will likely enjoy it. There’s a lot to love here, enjoy:
