If you have a love for iconic Hollywood stars such as Marylin Monroe, Elizabeth Taylor and Cary Grant, then you’ll want to get to know Dave Karger. Karger hosts “Summer Under the Stars” on Turner Classic Movies.
“Summer Under the Stars” is a month-long old-movie marathon. A Turner Classic Movies favorite for nearly 20 years, the series picks one celebrity to showcase on TCM for a full 24 hours. It features old-time silver screen actors, stars still with us today, and some lesser known-actors in the Hollywood history books.
This year, Dave helped pick the featured stars. Elvis films will kick off the summer series. Traditionally, TCM will air the artist’s work in chronological order with the crescendo building to their most beloved film at prime time. The movie marathon goes on all day and night through the month of August.
“Summer Under the Stars” kicks off Aug. 1 on Turner Classic Movies.
This segment aired on the KTLA 5 Morning News on July 28, 2021.
