TCM's Tab Hunter tribute

Actor Tab Hunter died on July 8, a few days before what would have been his 87th birthday. TCM is honoring Hunter tomorrow (July 20) morning and afternoon with eight of his movies:

6:00AM The Steel Lady (1953)
7:30AM Return to Treasure Island (1954)
9:00AM Lafayette Escadrille (1958)
10:45AM Operation Bikini (1963)
12:15PM The Golden Arrow (1964)
2:00PM The Girl He Left Behind (1956)
4:00PM The Burning Hills (1956)
5:45PM The Life and Times of Judge Roy Bean (1972)

Track of the Cat, which I used for the illustration here only because I don't have stills from any of the other movies and I used the still above in the obituary post on Hunter, is not on the schedule. It's one of the movies John Wayne's Batjac Productions produced, although it was before the company was named that. I don't know who has the TV rights to those, although looking at the list, quite a few ran on TCM ages ago and I did articles (I didn't realize Man in the Vault was a Batjac movie), but most haven't shown up recently.
