Fans of actress Kay Francis are in luck because on July 14, TCM will be airing during their prime-time schedule a bunch of her movies. This event is starting at 8 p.m. ET. The classic movie channel will be airing seven of her movies. The first movie to air is at 8 p.m. is the 1930 drama "For the Defense." John Cromwell had directed the dramatic feature and William Powell and Scott Kolk starred with Francis in the movie.
After that movie at 9:15, the 1932 comedy "Trouble in Paradise," is going to be airing. This is the second feature that will be airing. The great Ernst Lubitsch was the one who directed "Trouble in Paradise." After "Trouble in Paradise," the third movie to air is the 1935 Mervyn Roy drama film, "I Found Stella Parish" will be airing next.
Other movies that will be airing throughout Monday night are the 1932 film, "Jewel Robbery," the 1930 film, "Raffles," the 1935 film "Stranded," and last but not least the last one that is going to air is the William Nigh film, "Allotment Wives." "Allotment Wives," is a 1945 drama that looks at women, who only marry servicemen in order to get their money. Otto Kruger, Teala Loring, and Paul Kelly starred with Kay Francis in this 40s drama.
So fans of Kay Francis won't want to miss July 14 during the night, starting at 8 p.m. ET. This is also great for classic movie fans that haven't seen her work, because now TCM is giving a great chance to watch many of her films that night. Don't forget to sent your DVRs too! She's an actress that is sometimes overlooked (you always hear about Bette Davis and the other usual actresses of that time), so it's nice that the TCM channel is taking time to air some of her movies that she's starred in.
