Heads-up re: TCM, 8/8

It’s looking quite u-g-l-y outside despite being so consistently beautiful lately, and thus it’s only appropriate that the subject of today’s “Summer Under the Stars” marathon is an actress who, despite having been quite beautiful, often found her cinematic self doing some ugly shit. Case in point: The Letter (1940; 95 minutes), a William Wyler-directed thriller that also stars Herbert Marshall and is, as far as I’m concerned, required viewing; it begins at 11:00PM. Also notable are the first Humphrey Bogart sightings on TCM in at least a week with Marked Woman (1937; 96 minutes) at 11:30AM and Dark Victory (1939; 104 minutes) at 1:30PM. Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m off to frolic about in this gorgeous weather.

The rest of the schedule is ici.

P.S. Yesterday I was slightly baffled by the lack of Lang’s The Big Heat on a day of programming devoted to Glenn Ford; turns out TCM is saving The Big Heat for Gloria Grahame Day next Thursday, which ought to be a good one.
