The 2020 TCM Summer Under the Stars Blogathon

This year has been a mess, to say the very least. But at least we still have Summer Under the Stars. TCM’s yearly farewell to summer is my favorite time of year and, once again, I’m hosting a blogging event to celebrate. I’ll be sharing your Summer Under the Stars content and giving away a great prize pack to one lucky participant.

Throughout every day in August, I’ll be posting links to your reviews, articles, lists, and essays on anything you can think of associated with Summer Under the Stars. All you have to do to participate is comment below with your blog name and the star(s) you’d like to put your name down for or you can email me at With reviews I prefer you discuss a movie actually screening during that star’s day unless it’s a list or a wider essay discussing a star’s work.

One lucky winner will be picked to get a Summer Under the Stars prize pack. Every article counts as an entry so the more you write, the more entries you get.

  1. Once again, no stars associated with the horror genre! And – come on – no problem with Bette Davis or John Wayne but their movies show regularly. And no Kay Francis- again! Didn’t even have a birthday tribute to her this year. Gosh, TCM! Give some neglected stars a chance in 2021.

  2. Barbara Stanwyck was “Priceless”,glad she’s the first Star! Rita Hayworth was a superb dancer! “Gilda” typecasted her but she was “Translucent”,but my favorite is “You were Never Lovelier”with Astaire&”CoverGirl”with Gene Kelly also was Outstanding! My how she dances down that spiral staircase in that glittering gold lame dress! Disappointed that the wonderful Vera-Ellen not featured this month but Ann Miller is most deserving!

  3. First off, I read on the SUTS website that John Wayne and Bette Davis have been traded for Natalie Wood and Olivia de Havilland. I’m interested in writing about Maureen O’Hara on her centennial. My website is Mariah’s Musings .
