Forecast for Tomorrow is “Sunny”

marilyn-sunny-blog1

Late risers, set thy DVRs. Tomorrow morning at 6am, TCM will be showing the 1930 Marilyn Miller vehicle Sunny, based on her 1925 Broadway hit of the same name. Miller only made a couple of movies before she died young in 1936, so I am eager to catch her in this for the first time.  In this story she plays a circus performer with a plethora of grooms.  Read more about Marilyn Miller in my full article here.
