All links lead to each actor's IMDb page, set to open in a new tab. Classic Movie Daily subscribers can look for images of Basil Rathbone and Ian Hunter inside today's issue, along with a collection of newspaper ads showing off my 10 favorite films from director Tay Garnett.
TCM TV Alerts through tomorrow at 7 am:
These titles play on TCM's US schedule and all quoted times are for my own local Eastern time zone.
—I've got nothing for you Saturday other than recommending a ball game or the beach.
—Sunday morning, 6:30 am ET, Hot Saturday (1932) with Nancy Carroll, Cary Grant, and Randolph Scott. Not my favorite Nancy Carroll movie, but good enough, especially considering the added attraction of her youthful co-stars. I have a review of Hot Saturday up on the site.
Read some good posts over the past couple of days, will link you around to a few:
TCM Summer of Darkness fans, Will McKinley rounds-up a heap of related posts and other information about TCM's film noir
overkill at Cinematically Insane.
I mentioned the beach a few moments ago, and while I've never met a beach movie that I liked, just about every classic film blogger I know has participated in this week's Beach Party Blogathon. If that's your cup of tea, check Silver Screenings for Day 5 posts with links to preceding days at the bottom of the page. Our friend Kristina of the Speakeasy co-hosts the event.
Christina Wehner didn't like My Man Godfrey, and neither did I (Jeeze, Cliff, how about something positive!). She's got a great post HERE about that and some other classics she didn't care for, explaining the awkwardness of such a minority viewpoint.
Finally, Danny at Pre-Code.com reviews a movie that I really do LIKE: 24 Hours (1931) with Clive Brook, Kay Francis, and Miriam Hopkins. Unfortunately, he didn't care for this one.
Danny always has good reasons for his "indifference" and he's kind enough to link back to my post for a more positive view at the bottom of his (Yes, I am the positive guy this time!). See you back here if you click through.
Happy Saturday, back tomorrow—
