TCM Guest Programmer June 2021: Andrew McCarthy

I don't know if the TCM Guest Programmers are back for good, but this is the second month in a row that we've got a Guest Programmer. This time around, it's Andrew McCarthy, whom you might recall from such classic 1980s films as Less Than Zero. Anyhow, he selected three of his favorite movies (I don't know if it's a think too that new Guest Programmers will pick three movies instead of four as they did when Robert Osborne was interviewing the Programmers), which will air tonight in prime time. McCarthy's selections are:

A Place in the Sun at 8:00 PM, in which Montgomery Clift falls in love with Elizabeth Taylor but knocks up Shelley Winters;
East of Eden at 10:15 PM, with James Dean in World War I-era northern California; and
The Philadelphia Story at 12:30 AM, in which Cary Grant shows up with a reporter and photographer (James Stewart and Ruth Hussey) at the wedding of his ex-wife (Katharine Hepburn).
