What to Watch, Summer Under the Stars edition: August 21 – 27

Welcome to the weekly installment of What to Watch! During TCM’s Summer Under the Stars, I’ll be selecting three to five films from each day to recommend. There will be no “new to me” selections since I’m going to be out of town/without TCM for half of the month of August and won’t be able to catch as many films as I’d like to.

All times are listed in EST and subject to change; check your local schedule for updates.

August 21: William Holden

11:30 am – Executive Suite (1954)

11:00 pm – Born Yesterday (1950)

…and then watch the 1939 film Golden Boy on DVD because it is a glaring omission from TCM’s Holden-fest!

  1. Not that you’re going to be home to watch this, but if you’ve never seen it, I highly recommend (when you return from your archeological dig in Egypt) tracking down ‘The Taking of Pelham One Two Three’, one of my favorite films of all time, and what I consider one of the most perfectly-constructed films ever made.


      1. Oh, I see, I’m supposed to READ the fine print! Okay, I get it now…you’re only listing the movies you HAVE seen. Gotcha. Jeez, I never knew commenting on your posts would be such hard work!
