Briefs for August 25-26, 2016

Apparently, Tab Hunter's autobiography, Tab Hunter Confidential, has been made into a documentary movie. The movie is now available on DVD. You probably know the story of Tab Hunter's being gay (oh dear, I've just spoiled it, haven't I) and having to stay in the closet in 1950s Hollywood, hence the whole "Natalie Wood and Tab wouldn't" line when the studio tried to pass them off as a romantically involved couple.

I apologize for forgetting to mention The Criminal Code in Constance Cummings' movies yesterday; it concluded the overnight. Boris Karloff was also in the movie, and he's going to be the star in tomorrow's installment of TCM's Summer Under the Stars.

Speaking of Karloff, he's got a small part in Lured, and TCM is using that to kick off tomorrow's schedule at 6:00 AM. This is a movie I'd recommend for anybody who only thinks of the zany Lucy Ricardo character when they think of Lucille Ball.
