TCM In August

In its monthly preview of Turner Classic Movies programming, the Hollywood Revue reminds us that August is "Summer Under The Stars" month, with a different star featured each day.  From HR:
While there are some traditional crowd-pleasers like Cary Grant, John Wayne,  Marilyn Monroe, and Elizabeth Taylor, there are also quite a few stars who haven’t been featured in a while. I’m particularly looking forward to Gene Kelly, James Cagney, Lon Chaney, Franchot Tone, Angela Lansbury, Rosalind Russell, and Ann Harding days.
