Imagi-Movies on @TCM for July, 2016

imagi-movies-JULY

Greetings Friends and Fiends!
Ye Olde Dragon here, with my monthly presentation of Imagi-Movies scheduled for broadcast by the good folks at Turner Classic Movies.
I do hope your summer is going well and that you all have a happy, and more importantly safe, Fourth of July!
Well, let’s get right to it even though we’re looking at a lower count than last month’s paltry 23 films.

Once again, there really are no highlights for the month.

TOTAL = 18 films on 9 dates

Well Guys and Ghouls, there you have it. This has to be one of, if not, the lowest number of offerings we’ve seen in a very long time. The reason for the cut off this month seems to stem from an abundance of Western films being shown, but I suppose every genre needs to get more coverage than the rest every so often. Remember, Hatchlings, August is Summer Under the Stars at TCM, meaning that every day a different actor or actress is highlighted for 24 hours. From a cursory glance, I don’t think we’re too bad off. Early in the month, we have a day devoted to the films of Fay Wray and towards the end there’s a 24 hour salute Boris Karloff! There’s bound to be more than a few extra entries between those dates, but we’ll have to wait and see. Until next time.

… End of Line…
