There are very few things I look forward to in summer, but Turner Classic Movies' Summer Under the Stars annual August event is definitely one of 'em! The month-long extravaganza shines the spotlight on a different movie star every day with his or her own 24-hour movie marathon! It's fabulous for fans of those featured and a fun way to discover the talents of those you aren't familiar with. And if you don't like the Star of the Day, it will be a good time to clear off some space on your DVR.
This year will be especially enjoyable 'cause I will be participating in Michael and Jill's TCM Summer Under the Stars Blogathon 2013! After its smashing success last year, they've decided to once again host this interactive experience. It's another entertaining way to get to know the actors, actresses and films that you are enthralled by!
I've chosen nine artists (and the Pre-Code movie that made me see old movies in a whole new way) to write about next month. I will profile the parts of their lives that make them personal to me, and to share what kind of impact they have had on my life. In other words, don't expect cookie-cutter reviews of classic films or its stars with the focus to simply please the fandoms. I do hope, however, that what I write will connect with you in some way — just like when it comes to the movies.
