Summer Under the Stars - Turner Classic Movies


Each day and night in August, in one of cable’s great traditions, TCM devotes 24 hours to a different movie legend.

Here’s an appropriate 84th birthday present for the film icon Robert Redford and his legions of fans: Redford’s inauguration into TCM’s annual Summer Under the Stars series, with a 24-hour marathon of his movies. It begins with one of his least known: 1962’s War Hunt, with highlights including the Watergate-era political satire The Candidate (1:15/12:15c), the peerless love story The Way We Were (3:15/2:15c), opposite Barbra Streisand; 1984’s baseball classic The Natural (5:30/4:30c), the epic romance Out of Africa (8/7c) opposite Meryl Streep; and his immortal collaboration with Paul Newman in 1969’s Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid (11/10c).
