Summer Movies is your guide to 30 sun-drenched classics that—through beach parties, road trips, outdoor sports, summer camp, or some intangible mood that brings the heat—manage to keep summer alive year-round. Packed with production details, stories from the set, and more than 150 color and black-and-white photos, the book takes an in-depth look at films from the silent era to the present that reflect the full range of how summer has been depicted on screen, both by Hollywood and by international filmmakers. Featured titles include Moon Over Miami (1941), State Fair (1945), Key Largo (1948), Monsieur Hulot's Holiday (1953), The Seven Year Itch (1955), The Parent Trap (1961), The Endless Summer (1964), Jaws (1975), Caddyshack (1980), Dirty Dancing (1987), Do the Right Thing (1989), Moonrise Kingdom (2012), Call Me by Your Name (2017), and many more.
“The author has a way with words that makes this book a delight to read and the design of the book is just absolutely stunning. It's a compact size which makes it the perfect book to pop into your summer tote bag and bring with you to the beach…. This is another winner from the TCM and Running Press line of books!”
—Raquel Stecher, Out of the Past
"This fun compendium will delight trip planners who like their vacations movie-oriented, as well as everyone who loves classic films."
—Rosellen Brewer, Library Journal Review
- "By and large, this latest TCM Collection volume projects a family-friendly vibe, with many listings that will appeal to group gatherings. The hundreds of photos will attract the younger set, and the text will light the way toward paths that explore a panoply of film genres."—Book Reviews, David Marshall James
