Five in July, and No Joan or Norma

                                Lovers Courageous (1932)

Bob and Madge Evans co-starred in five movies, they had the young lovers roles down pat.  Madge's birthday was July 1st ... well, I almost remembered it in time!  Anyway, Happy Birthday to Madge.

Lovers Courageous, along with four other movies will be shown by TCM this month.  And not one of them is co-starring Ms. Joan or Ms. Norma.  They are all Bob movies, meaning he got top billing!  That did not happen when you made a movie with Crawford or Shearer.  The movies and their showing times, all EDT, are as follows:

            July 9th at 2:30 a.m. - The Earl of Chicago (1939)

            July 11th at 9:45 a.m. - Hell Below (1933), also with Madge

            July 21st at 8:15 a.m. - Man in Possession (1931)

            July 24th at 12:15 p.m. - Lovers Courageous (1932)

            July 29th at 6:30 p.m. - Yellow Jack (1938)

Not a bad selection of his movies, all worth at least a second viewing ... or more.  And Bob isn't the same character in any of them!
