Summer Under the Stars- Fredric March (August 31th)

Some Reflection:

Well, I’ll be darned. It’s the last day of August. How the ‘bleep’ did that happen? I feel like I was just writing about Abbott and Costello and Kim Novak.

Well, Summer Under the Stars comes to a close today with a look at Fredric March. Yet another legend of cinema (I’m using that phrase a lot this month), March was a fixture on movie screens for more than 50 years. He moved gracefully through his career from leading man and juvenile roles during the twenties and thirties, through his powerful later character parts in films like Inherit the Wind and Middle of the Night.

Kristen ReCasts the Classics: I Married a Witch

If You Can Only Watch One:

I’ll be giving another un-orginial answer here, but I’m sticking with the Top 11 I released at the beginning of the month. While there are a number of ‘must-see’ movies on the schedule today (I Married a Witch, Design for Living and A Star is Born to name just a few) The Best Years of Our Lives is one which shouldn’t be missed.

The 1946 drama features March opposite Myrna Loy, Dana Andrews, Teresa Wright and Harold Russell and tells the story of the challenges faced by returning veterans and their families on the United States home front during the rush to normalcy after World War II. The movie is a beautiful, emotional and moving work of art and its one that shouldn’t be missed.

The Best Years of Our Lives airs at 8:00pm EST.
