Thanks to a little Perry Mason run, Turner Classic Movies is going to do a little better by us Warren William fans in the early Summer than it did through the Spring.
June 29 – 12:45 AM (early morning of the 30th actually) – Cleopatra (1934) – Marc Antony (Henry Wilcoxon) gets more camera time, but Warren William is playing Julius Caesar, which is nothing to sneeze at! Looks like Cleopatra is part of a Cecil B. DeMille night that starts at 8.
July 1 – Here we go, Perry Mason all morning and into the afternoon on Wednesday the 1st.
9:30 am – The Case of the Howling Dog (1934)
11:00 am – The Case of the Curious Bride (1935) Michael Curtiz directs this one
12:30 pm – The Case of the Lucky Legs (1935)
2:00 pm – The Case of the Velvet Claws (1936) With Claire Dodd as Della Street
Note: Following the Warren William Perry Mason movies you also have a chance to check out Ricardo Cortez (The Case of the Black Cat – 1936) and Donald Woods (The Case of the Stuttering Bishop – 1937) in the role as well.
July 17 – 9:45 am The Man in the Iron Mask (1939) Okay, TCM really likes this one. It seems to be on once per month.
July 25 – 10:00 pm The Firefly (1937) starring Jeanette MacDonald. Even my DVR will be lit up here, don’t believe I have this one and I know I haven’t watched it if I do.
And while there’s no WW as Philo Vance on in June or July, I figured I’d share this still from The Gracie Allen Murder Case (1939) that I picked up in an eBay auction recently:
