This month's column is apologetically late due to my extensive travelling.
Just some thoughts on current happenings:
There are 12 recommended films to watch on Turner Classic Movies in the U.S. this month:
Anatomy of a Murder is one of the most authentic and enthralling courtroom dramas of all time. Previously reviewed here, the trial will begin Monday, July 16 at 7:15pm PST.
Steve McQueen is TCM's honouree this month and there's perhaps no better way to celebrate the actor's most iconic characterisations than his titular Bullitt, reviewed here. Bullitt will speed its way onto TCM Thursday, July 19 at 5pm PST.
Dark Passage is a wildly engrossing yarn that combines the best of romance with the best of noir in the best location for both: San Francisco. Previously endorsed as a Blu-Ray release here, Bogart will make his dark passage through Eddie Muller's Noir Alley on TCM Saturday, July 21 at 9:30pm PST and again on Sunday, July 22 at 7am PST.
TCM's current monthly schedule can be confirmed by clicking on any of the above images. For those who live in parts of the U.S. other than the western region, the time zone can be adjusted in the upper right-hand corner of TCM's programme.
