Many at this forum has suggested that supporting actors (or character actors),  be featured as part of SOTM.  

 

I don't support that since to me a 'star' is someone with "before the title" billing;  a leading player.   e.g. if there was a food program called "Entrée of the Month' it shouldn't feature French fries since that is a side dish.  

 

So instead I wish TCM would have a new series called Supporting Actors of the Month;   This would be similar to SOTM but feature films by supporting actors;  maybe 2 - 4 actor each month (it needs to be more than one actor since there are so many fine supporting actors to feature).

 

PS:  Peter Lorre was Star of the Month in October 2004.    Lorre was the leading man in many films e.g. the Mr. Moto serial,  but his most famous roles are as a supporting player. 

 

That's very close to a recent idea I had, "Star of the Week."  The SOTWs can be integrated among SOTM for "filler material" instead of playing NXNW a dozen more times.  That may or may not be a good thing though, as the very rare stuff might get pushed back even further to the bottom of the stack.  So I'l go on record and correct myself any say let's either have SOTM or SOTW, but not both in the same month.  If there were both, then there wouldn't be much time to get to the rarities after they get done showing everything else on their clock.

Not to mention that the same thing could have been said about Clark Gable.

 

 

I wouldn't mind that, personally, but I realize they can't be done away with entirely. Their time would have to get cut down considerably to make adequate room for all the foreign and silent film stars who will also never be SOTM, (hah.) It could work the other way, too- Cary Grant and company could get the occasional SUTS day in return for never being SOTM again, (aha!)

I just looked over the recent posts in the thread. It sounds like some of us are slamming Allen Jenkins! LOL I don't mind him.

 

I do think that some of what you're advocating is actually done with the primetime spotlights. Sometimes they set aside an evening to focus on a foreigh star or a foreign director. They do not do it often, but occasionally. I'd rather have it that way, when we can potentially see a tribute to them any night of the year, not having to wait until next August.

I wouldn't say Allen Jenkins played the same character in every film.  e.g.  his role in Dead End as Bogie's gangster buddy was much different than his role in Ball of Fire.    There are other examples.

 

Not to mention that the same thing could have been said about Clark Gable.

 

I don't think TCM has a formula that says people who will never be SOTM can instead be featured in August. By your definition above, the heavyweights like Cary Grant and Liz Taylor should only be SOTM so we can make room for the guys like Allen Jenkins.[...]

  Where is Walter Brennan, Eve Arden, Agnes Moorhead, Jack Carson, Fay Bainter, Billie Burke, Eugene Pallette, James Gleason, Edward Arnold, Peter Lorre, Roland Young, Anne Revere, Selena Royle.

 

Star means someone who can carry a picture on their own.  None of the actors listed could or did.  A supporting or character actor spotlight would be nice.

 

Some actors as others have mentioned were both leads and supporting.  Walter Huston was a lead early in his career, and later became an exceptional character actor.  He would be good as a STOM.

Whenever this comes up I think the same thing: Not all character actors are created equal. There's a difference between someone like Allen Jenkins, who plays the same character in every film; and someone like Lionel Barrymore, who was a star in his own right. There was such a thing as a star character actor that played large and small parts and many different types of characters. Walter Brennan is one, and so is Basil Rathbone, Dan Duryea, Edward Arnold, Akim Tamiroff, and one George Sanders. To me it's these people that need to be phased in first, (with equal excursions into European and foreign language film stars, as well as silent stars and more recent ones, (Dolores del Rio, Jean Gabin, Dirk Bogarde, etc.)) And SUTS should be for people who won't make SOTM in the foreseeable future, like Allen Jenkins.

 

That is my vision. Yadda, yadda, yadda.

I like your idea of a star character actor but even then we are going to have people like Brian Donlevy who starred in many pictures and when he played support he was more of a second lead, not really a character actor.

[...]A few years ago in August, TCM started including character actors and actresses during Summer Under the Stars. Mary Boland, Thelma Ritter and Hattie McDaniel were all honored. I don't think Hattie was ever even third- or fourth-billed in any movie.

I like your analogy, it's great...though some performers moved between both categories. Even someone like Bette Davis started out in supporting roles. And what about a star like Burt Reynolds who was the greatest money-making headliner in the 70s, who wound up doing supporting roles in something like BOOGIE NIGHTS.

 

And then we have people like Charles Coburn and Marjorie Main that were for the most part character actors, but did get above the title billing in many of the B films and modestly budgeted programmers to which they were assigned.

I've reviewed all the Star of the Month listings and there is to this viewer a glaring omission. Too many "character" or supporting actors/actresses are missing from these lists.  Where is Walter Brennan, Eve Arden, Agnes Moorhead, Jack Carson, Fay Bainter, Billie Burke, Eugene Pallette, James Gleason, Edward Arnold, Peter Lorre, Roland Young, Anne Revere, Selena Royle.

 

Walter Brennan, Eve Arden, Agnes Moorhead, Jack Carson, Billie Burke and Fay Bainter are major glaring omissions. I really think it's time for TCM to recognize these incredible actors/actresses who make the "leads" look good.  Walter Brennan and Eve Arden and Agnes Moorhead's careers are longer than many of the Stars of the Month.  Bring on the character actor and actress as Stars of the Month.

Thanks for catching that, I meant to type Paul Henreid, not sure why I typed Muni instead.

I corrected the typo and you should be able to print it out now.

correction please: Garbo said "I want to be let alone" but she loved her films dearly and thought of them as her legacy - we should enjoy them - give her as Star of the Month - by the by, have you seen her silents? they will make a silent fan out of anyone....and of course the masterpieces i.e. Camille, Anna Karenina, etc. we want to have some realy sophistication in Star of the Month- also, let us have more Crawford and Stanwyck too, and Cary and John Gilbert - you know the great ones!

I agree about Joel McCrea, but there are many others that have never been honored such as Loretta Young and Gene Tierney.

I checked the list out and only see Garbo listed twice May 1994 and Sept 2005. When was she honored for the 3rd time ?
