For Classic Movie Daily subscribers this post is followed by a new lightning review, three accompanying images related to said review, one shot of TCM Star of the Month Susan Hayward, and then "birthday" images celebrating Buzz Barton, Pat O'Malley, and Alan Ladd.
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.
—The Mexico theme continues throughout daytime Thursday, with the best of the bunch The Hitch-Hiker (1953 - 12:30 pm) starring Edmond O'Brien, Frank Lovejoy, and William Talman. Directed by Ida Lupino.
—TCM's first September Thursday night tribute to Star of the Month Susan Hayward begins at 8:00 pm with William A. Wellman's remake of Beau Geste (1939) starring Gary Cooper.
I have an extensive review of the title that follows at 10:00 pm, Adam Had Four Sons (1941), a solid family saga with a cast of stars who seem mismatched at first glance: Warner Baxter, Ingrid Bergman, Fay Wray, Susan Hayward. But it works. My review is HERE.
The Susan Hayward titles continue playing through until 11:45 Friday morning. We'll pick up there tomorrow.
—For more about TCM's Susan Hayward selections Thursday night and beyond, be sure to have a look at this Star of the Month preview post at Laura's Miscellaneous Musings.
—BearManor Media, entertainment publishing specialist, is running a Labor Day coupon sale on their website now through September 7. Among recent BearManor titles are biographies of Ted Healy, that I reviewed here, and Jeanne Eagels, which I promise I will review at some point. The current sale is for 10% off anything on the BearManor site—if the discount does not automatically apply, use coupon code BM107.
—Speaking of books, more specifically eBooks, if you were among the many who have already picked up a copy of the first issue of The Pre-Code Companion, thank you so much!
This brand new release spent most of Wednesday settled in as the #1 bestseller in Amazon's "Guides & Reviews" Kindle category, and is currently holding its own at #3 on that same list. All profits on the Companion, organized, edited, and published by Danny Reid, are being donated to the ASPCA. Among the articles you'll find inside is an original that I wrote, taking a look at Jean Harlow and Chester Morris in Red-Headed Woman (1932).
—More chitchat tomorrow. I've still got to gather images and read through today's new review a couple of more times before I press publish on the Daily this morning.
Have a good one —
