Eddie Muller hosts Summer of Darkness on TCM

Film Noir Foundation Eddie Muller will host TCM's Summer of Darkness this June and July, during which TCM will dedicate 24 hours each Friday to a lineup comprised exclusively of film noir. 

Muller will present four movies each night during prime-time, 36 films in all, as host of TCM's "Friday Night Spotlight." In addition to serving as on-air host, the "Czar of Noir" also chose the films he'll be presenting. Muller will be presenting the TCM broadcast premieres of two FNF restorations, Norman Foster's Woman on the Run (1950) on June 5, the opening day of Summer, and Bryon Haskin's Too Late for Tears (1949) on July 17.

Muller's other selections include thematic groupings that focus on San Francisco, wartime noir, John Alton, the King Brothers, and much more. Visit the official Summer of Darkness website for the full schedule.

Thanks for the reminder. I'll be wearing out the VCR this summer.
