Stuff to Look Forward to in July :)

Yipee – summer is in full swing! July has a lot on offer, including:

 

On TCM, this month there are a couple of cool things happening:

Spike Lee is a Guest Programmer for the evening of Thursday July 5th. His film selections include:

  • Ace in the Hole
  • A Face in the Crowd
  • Night of the Hunter
  • On the Waterfront

 

Tuesdays in July, TCM is featuring 23 films from British actor Leslie Howard (Ashley of Gone With the Wind fame). I really liked him as an actor; so sad to see that his life and career were cut short, albeit in a good cause. Here are few films I recommend you take a look at:

  • STAND-IN
  • THE PETRIFIED FOREST
  • OF HUMAN BONDAGE (1934)
  • ROMEO AND JULIET (1936)
  • A FREE SOUL
  • PYGMALION
  • THE SCARLET PIMPERNEL (1935) *** A favorite novel and film of mine.

 

Over in Brooklyn, NY BAMcinématek is having an 8 film retrospect on one of the great beauties of the silver screen, Grace Kelly in a series of films called Grace Kelly: The Cool Blonde. My tickets are already purchased for To Catch a Thief and Rear Window. 

 

Oh yeah and there is the matter of this little Christopher Nolan film coming out:

 

 

And lastly, on what would have been my dad’s 67th birthday, I plan on doing a special post about one of his favorite films.

 

What are you most looking forward to this month?

  1. That’s a cool blonde double-feature, alright. I’d catch that one, too (if I were back there ;-)). Yeah, Nolan’s film is the big event for this month, and I already have my IMAX fix for the 20th. Thanks, Iba.

  2. Oh I wish I lived somewhere where there were screenings of classic films! I can’t imagine what I’d do if I got my hands on a hitchcock-grant film on the big screen, you’re lucky!

    Dark Knight Rises is going to be so epic. But it will only premiere on August 2 around here, damn.

    Hi, iluv and company;

    Not a huge fan of Spike Lee. A sometimes better than decent director. Who made his mark very early on with ‘Joe’s Bed~Stuy Barbershop: We Cut Heads’, ‘Do The Right Thing’ and ‘Malcolm X’, but I cannot fault his taste in films.

    Four out of four favorites of mine!

    Christopher Nolan?…. Wasn’t he in ‘Bataan’?

    • That is the thing really … I am quite pleasantly surprised by Spike’s film selection. A Face in the Crowd is very apt given the tragic news of Andy Griffith’s passing.

  5. Really looking forward to seeing The Dark Knight Rises. I hope it will be consistantly good, unlike The Dark Knight where the 3rd act really felll apart.

  6. Looking forward to some small film by an unknown director named Christopher Nolan. 😉

  7. Looking forward to ACE IN THE HOLE, can’t believe that’s tonight already 🙂 I love Stand-In! i DVRed this time, way better than YouTube. A little jealous of the Grace Kelly double feature 😉 and of course Dark Knight Rises
