You’ve wandered into the topsy-turvy world of Tulgey Wood, the blog of writer and historian Jim Fanning. Tulgey Wood celebrates artistry and creativity (and sometimes just plain madness): movies, animation, TV, books, comics—and of course Disney, lots and lots of true-blue, through-and-through Disney, including D23 and Disney twenty-three Magazine, and Sketches Magazine and the Walt Disney Collectors Society. Tulgey Wood is so fun, fascinating and full of frolicsome photos and facts, it’s scary. So wander through the wonder of it all, and enjoy.

Summer Stargazing Starts Tomorrow

Now Playing, Turner Classic Movies' monthly programming guide, showcases the annual Summer Under the Stars film festival in its August 2016 issue. And this mini-mag (below) does it in style with a rare color photo of beauteous Lucille Ball from her MGM days. In case you aren't aware, TCM offers a glorious flick fest of faves each August, saluting one movie great each day throughout the month. It kicks off tomorrow with Edward G. Robinson (see?), followed by Lucy (waahhhh! or AHHHHH!)  on August 2, Bing Crosby (boo-boo-boo) on August 3 and so on. This Hollywood extravaganza spotlights everyone from such giants as Bette Davis, Humphrey Bogart, Spencer Tracy and Montgomery Clift,  to more eclectic but still superb stars as Fay Wray, Boris Karloff, Ralph Richardson and Angie Dickinson. Starting tomorrow, tune into TCM and spend your summer with their stars.
