Turner Classic Movies is having a marathon focusing on one of classic Hollywood's most interesting actresses, the tragically undervalued Marion Davies. TCM will be showing two of her silent works, THE RED MILL (1926) and SHOW PEOPLE (1928), as well as three talkies, MARIANNE (1929), FLORADORA GIRL (1930) and PEG O MY HEART (1933). The day will conclude with an early evening showing of the fascinating documentary CAPTURED ON FILM: THE TRUE STORY OF MARION DAVIES. This 2001 documentary is essential viewing and features charming narration by Charlize Theron.
