Summary

Turner Classic Movies presents a festival of sunshine classics -- movies that capture the spirit of the most carefree season of the year -- complete with behind-the-scenes stories, reviews, vacation inspiration, and a trove of photos.

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.
