Happy July, everyone! With summer now in full swing, TCM has plenty of great movies to watch on hot summer nights. Maureen O’Hara is July’s Star of the Month and will be featured every Tuesday night this month. TCM will also be commemorating the hundredth anniversary of World War I every Friday by showing some of the best WWI movies, including The Big Parade, Sergeant York, Grand Illusion, and All Quiet on the Western Front, just to name a few.
The night I am most looking forward to this month is July 10th. TCM will be featuring six classic documentaries such as Salesman, Harlan County USA, and Sans Soleil. I really like documentaries and that night’s movies is a nice mix of things I’m looking forward to re-watching and ones I’ve been wanting to see.
Wow, TCM in July is chock full of noteworthy days! Gregory Peck is the star of the month, so that means lots of great movies like To Kill a Mockingbird, Roman Holiday, Designing Woman, and Spellbound. In addition to Gregory Peck, TCM will spend some time spotlighting other great stars like Myrna Loy, Gene Kelly, William Powell, and Doris Day. Every Thursday this month, TCM will be showcasing classic teen movies, everything from Rebel Without a Cause and Beach Blanket Bingo to Sixteen Candles and Risky Business. It feels like this is one of those months where there’s something for everybody, whether you like John Ford westerns or Ingmar Bergman. Now, on to my picks for the month:
