Film Noir During TCM Summer Under the Stars 2020

Like most Turner Classic Movies fans, I love Summer Under the Stars, the annual, month long programming block in which each day is devoted to a different star. That having been said, like most Noir Alley fans, I don't like being without Noir Alley for a whole month. Fortunately, during most Summers Under the Stars TCM shows a good number of film noirs, and this Summer Under the Stars is no different.

I went through the schedule and found every film noir that is airing next month. Please let me know if I have missed any! Also, August 31 is devoted to French star Alain Delon. While I wouldn't consider any of his films to be purely noir, some of his movies are close enough that most film noir fans will probably enjoy them

Thanks for doing the work. We know the noir is there, just not where we normally look!

Illegal is a dandy re-do of The Mouthpiece, 1932. I almost wish they had saved it for a time when both could be shown back-to-back.
