Summer Under the Stars: The Festival's Picks

Here's the Atlanta Film Festival's pick of films to catch during the remaining days of Turner Classic Movies' Summer Under the Stars. It wasn't like pulling teeth, and the list is indeed fairly long. We tried to pick some more obscure films, but classics are classics. Plus, there's still plenty of folks who haven't caught some of these greats. And by all means, add your own picks in the comment section.

By the by, the Brando doc played the 2007 festival, so we've got some particular love for that one.
