TCM Afternoon Movie: George Cukor & Judy Holliday
TCM, beginning at 3pm
Catch a Classic!
Actress/comedian/singer Judy Holliday (born Judith Tuvim) was another brilliant star whom we lost at way too early of an age; she passed away from cancer on June 7, 1965, just a few weeks shy of her 44th birthday. But her bright light was notably seen in even just the few films she made over her roughly 20-year career, and her talent was certainly noticed by equally gifted artists, including legendary director George Cukor. After directing Holliday in one of her earlier films, 1944’s Winged Victory, Cukor must have seen something in the actress even in her smaller part in that drama, something he would describe as “that depth of emotion, that unexpectedly touching emotion, that thing which would unexpectedly touch your heart.” Five years later, when it came to making his classic romantic comedy/drama Adam’s Rib, Cukor — along with that film’s legendary costars, Spencer Tracy and Katharine Hepburn, who also certainly would have known a star in the making when they saw one — worked to get Holliday a key part in the movie, and it paid off with the actress receiving a Golden Globe nomination and a stepping stone into Hollywood leading-lady status. Cukor went on to direct Holliday in three of her most enduring films after she attained this stardom, and those titles are airing this afternoon in a triple feature on Turner Classic Movies. Up first is the Best Picture Oscar-nominated 1950 comedy/drama Born Yesterday, costarring Broderick Crawford and William Holden. The film earned Holliday a Best Actress Oscar win and a Golden Globe Award for Best Actress — Musical or Comedy, while Cukor received Best Director Oscar and Golden Globe nominations. After that is It Should Happen to You (1954), a romantic comedy also featuring Peter Lawford and Jack Lemmon in his first major film appearance. The lineup then concludes with The Marrying Kind (1952), a comedy/drama costarring Aldo Ray and with a screenplay by Ruth Gordon and Garson Kanin, who had also written Adam’s Rib. — Jeff Pfeiffer

Special Theme: Addiction & Recovery
TCM, beginning at 8pm
Catch a Classic!
Turner Classic Movies’ monthlong Wednesday night spotlight on memorable movies that have made efforts to put a serious focus on addictions to substances and behaviors concludes with tonight’s six-film lineup. First is Bigger Than Life (1956), directed by Nicholas Ray, and starring and produced by James Mason. The film’s story seems to presage our current opioid epidemic; Mason plays a schoolteacher and family man who becomes seriously ill and is prescribed cortisone as a treatment. While his illness takes a turn for the better, an even more serious one takes hold as he becomes addicted to the drug and turns abusive and violent. While not a critical or commercial success in America upon its release, Bigger Than Life was praised at the time by French New Wave filmmaking masters Jean-Luc Goddard and François Truffaut, and is now also viewed by many others as a masterpiece. Up next is Valley of the Dolls (1967), the campy cult drama based on Jacqueline Susann’s bestselling novel, which follows three women (played by Barbara Parkins, Patty Duke and Sharon Tate) who try to make it in Hollywood but fall prey to a seamy underworld and addictions to barbiturates (the “dolls” of the title). Following that is The Lady Gambles, a 1949 film noir making its TCM premiere, with Barbara Stanwyck as a wife whose introduction to gambling develops into a full-blown obsession that threatens her life, savings and marriage. The gambling theme continues with the final two films: California Split (1974), Robert Altman’s comedy/drama starring Elliott Gould and George Segal as a pair of gamblers who find themselves drawn ever more deeply into a sleazy gambling world with increasingly higher stakes; and Tricheurs, a 1984 French drama making its network premiere, about two gamblers, a man and a woman, who team up in a casino and realize the only way you can beat the house is to cheat. — Jeff Pfeiffer

John Wayne in the ’70s
TCM, beginning at 8pm
Catch a Classic!
When most people think of John Wayne, they probably recall him in his Western- and war-movie heyday from the 1940s and ’50s, and for good reason — the Duke and his iconic onscreen persona, combined with great directors like John Ford, made for some enduring classics in that era. But Wayne also did something interesting as he neared the end of his life (he would pass away on June 11, 1979, at age 72). While the swingin’ early ’70s may not have seemed like a prime time for someone from the older guard like Wayne, he did make his box-office presence known, coming off his Best Actor Oscar-winning performance in 1969’s True Grit, the only Academy Award win in his long career. This evening, Turner Classic Movies airs a double feature of Westerns representing late-career highlights for Wayne, starting with 1972’s The Cowboys, in which he stars as a rancher whose regular hands leave him to search for gold, so he hires a group of youngsters for a 400-mile cattle drive, along the way becoming a father figure of sorts as they learn to become men. Second on tonight’s double bill is Cahill, United States Marshal (1973), led by Wayne as the tough-as-nails titular lawman who faces a moral dilemma when his rebellious sons seek to make their own names by robbing a bank. — Jeff Pfeiffer
