Imagi-Movies on @TCM for August, 2016

imagi-movies-AUG

Greetings, Friends and Fiends!

Ye Olde Dragon here, with my monthly tidings of Imagi-Movies, scheduled for broadcast by the folks at Turner Classic Movies.

Well Hatchlings, as I cautioned you last month, August is TCM‘s annual SUMMER UNDER THE STARS festival, highlighting a different star every 24 hours. As you’d expect, the pickings are rather slim for Imagi-Movies this month, BUT on August 26, 2016 we’ll be treated to a full day of Boris Karloff!
