Summer will bring some of the brightest stars in cinema to Old Hollywood Films.
Here's what's coming up in June 2016:
* June is the traditional month for weddings. so I'll continue my 1001 classic movie series every Monday with a look at four diverse films with bride in the title: family film, Father of the Bride (1950); innovative musical, Seven Brides for Seven Brothers (1954); horror classic, Bride of Frankenstein (1935), and the Cary Grant comedy, I Was a Male War Bride (1949).
*I'll celebrate the legendary career of Katharine Hepburn with a look at her films of the 1930's, like her Oscar winning performance in Morning Glory (1933).
* On June 2, I'll have a guide for TCM's star of the month, Marie Dressler. Plus, I'll have a TCM Viewer's Guide every Sunday.
