I would like to see a whole day of those "character actors" like William Demarest or Eve Arden. It is hard to find their movies as their names aren't usually listed in the descriptions.

I enjoy a theme of types of movies.  That makes it easier to record a genre I like and not bother with a day of something I don't care for.  I especially liked August with a whole day of stars.  I would like to see a whole day of those "character actors" like William Demarest or Eve Arden.  It is hard to find their movies as their names aren't usually listed in the descriptions.

Playing the same genre or movie star all day gets very boring.  The past two days have been westerns.  Other days a movie star is highlighted.  What is purpose?  How about a variety mixing up genres and stars.  Variety is the spice of life.
