Now that we know which films will be featured as Essentials in August, we can guess who might be the Summer Under the Stars honorees on those four Saturdays.

 

SINGIN' IN THE RAIN is up first, and since TCM just did a 24-hour tribute to Debbie Reynolds in January, I bet this will be Gene Kelly day.

 

THE QUIET MAN provides an excuse for TCM to once again feature John Wayne, who, with the competition of Katharine Hepburn, is the most frequently honored star on TCM.

 

THE MANCHURIAN CANDIDATE... hard to say. Most likely Frank Sinatra day, but there's an outside shot at Angela Lansbury of Janet Leigh.

 

WHITE HEAT...this must be James Cagney day.
