Classic Hollywood stars react to the summer

If you’ve been following me on Instagram, you’ll be familiar with Classic Hollywood Stars React and more recently, 31 Days of Summer Movies. And because it’s July (hurrah!), I decided to combine the two, so here is Classic Hollywood stars react to the Summer! Because I’m crazy.

The Lady from Shanghai (1947, dir. Orson Welles) – Despite its convoluted plot, intrigue and double crosses, the summer-y goodness of The Lady from Shanghai is delicious…

    Carol, Been enjoying your 31 days of summer posts! Spent many summer afternoons as a boy in the wonderful air conditioned movie theatres watching double features( before your time, lol). My favorite double feature was ” cool hand luke “ and “ wait until dark”.
