Today TCM's Summer Under the Stars is are honoring Olivia de Havilland. Olivia is one of my favorite actress's and one of the prettiest in my opinion. I wish I looked like her!! Here is a list of the films that TCM is showing today that I recommend. Click on the title to view the trailer. And remember, if you miss one you can always watch it on Watch TCM.
LOVE Olivia's hat here from Alibi Ike!
6am EST | Alibi Ike (1935) - Joe E. Brown plays a brash baseball player who tangles with gamblers and a pretty girl. This is also Olivia's first film. I haven't seen this one yet but it's set to record on my dvr (the last time it was scheduled to show on TCM it was canceled for a tribute for one of the many actors we lost last year). UPDATE: It was really good!! I definitely recommend it!
7:15am | My Love Came Back (1940) - Olivia is a violinist who is helped along in her career by a millionaire. Also starring Eddie Albert and Jane Wyman. I really enjoyed this film, especially the Albert/Wyman pairing.
Hollywood Pattern based on a dress from the movie.
12:15pm | The Male Animal (1942) - Henry Fonda is a college professorwho is under fire for wanting to read aloud to his class a piece of literature written by a man with .Olivia is his wife, who he thinks he is losing to her old flame, football star Jack Carson. Also starring Joan Leslie.
2:15pm | Princess O'Rourke (1943) - Robert Cummings is a pilot who takes Olivia home with him after she takes one to many sleeping pills! He doesn't know she's a princess! Also starring Charles Coburn, Jack Carson, and Jane Wyman! This is one of my favorites :)
4pm | The Private Lives of Elizabeth and Essex (1939) - Olivia never looked more beautiful, Errol Flynn more dashing... but they don't end up together :( Bette Davis plays Queen Elizabeth.
8:pm | The Adventures of Robin Hood (1938) - Olivia IS Maid Marion. Errol Flynn IS Robin Hood. If you have not seen this glorious technicolor classic then you are in for a real treat!
4:15am | Government Girl (1943) - just look at those tag lines! I'll be recording this one too!
