TCM Guest Programmer July 2015: Joan Collins

Joan Collins, who is probably best remembered for her role in the 1980s prime time soap opera Dynasty, is this month's Guest Programmer on TCM. She sat down with Robert Osborne to present four of her favorite movies. That sit-down and the movies will be on tonight.

First, at 8:00, Collins has selected Gilda, starring Rita Hayworth in the title role as the woman who tempts old flame Glenn Ford despite the fact that she's married to her boss in glamorous Buenos Aires;
That's followed at 10:15 by Boom Town, starring Clark Gable and Spencer Tracy as two men who wind up competing against each other in the oil business.
At 12:30 AM, Collins will present The Women, the classic 1939 movie about a bunch of catty women and how their gossipy ways affect each other.
The Women was remade in the 1950s as The Opposite Sex, which starred Collins herself, taking the role played by Joan Crawford in the original. The Opposite Sex airs at 3:00 AM.
