Somehow this blog seems to occasionally get lost in the shuffle. I’ve been running a project about forgiveness on the Not Just Sassy blog and posting more than usual over there. Somehow in the midst of kicking that off I missed the first week of Turner Classic Movies’ Summer Under the Stars.
That’s a big blow because I look forward every year to checking out all the movies with favorite stars of the past. SO glad I finally got to it in time for Jimmy Stewart day. I managed to catch No Time for Comedy with Rosalind Russell, which I’d never seen before That’s my big aim every August — find movies by my faves that I haven’t seen. And, I admit, I hit a few long-time loves for the sixth or twelfth time…
Jimmy also had a small part in Wife vs. Secretary, starring three more I love: Clark Gable, Myrna Loy and Jean Harlow. It turned out I’d seen it before but I loved every minute all over again. Even the misunderstanding that should have required a simple explanation… Handled by that crowd, how it could it miss?
I’m really looking forward to Saturday when I have my DVR set for a series of Myrna Loy and William Powell
movies that don’t involve the Thin Man! Love those two separate or together. Wow what a pair on screen. I suspect it will turn out I’ve seen one or more before but I’m hoping to catch one that’s new to me.
Anybody else have a to-see list for Summer Under the Stars?
