    If they honor John Gavin they won't pick PSYCHO. They'll pick IMITATION OF LIFE (1959)...because it's cheaper to lease than PSYCHO, he has a more important role in it, the TCM programmers like to schedule this film, and they can re-air it in February during 31 Days of Oscar. I agree with the OP that Nanette Fabray will be chosen and THE BAND WAGON will air. That's an obvious one. For Vic Damone, they will air something like RICH YOUNG AND PRETTY, where he plays Jane Powell's love interest and has considerable screen time. Other options are ATHENA and HIT THE DECK (both featuring Jane Powell). All these titles are in the TCM library.

    You're thinking of John Gavin. Clint Walker was primarily in westerns.

    2018 In Memoriam programming

    Dillman was a 20th Century Fox contract star in the early 60s and was in several "A" pictures as a lead or second lead before he found steady employment on television. Stiers was in all those Woody Allen films and did voice overs in classic animated films, though yes, he's a bit of a long shot. Gloria Jean is someone I'd pick. And since TCM did include her fellow Universal musical pal Deanna Durbin a few years ago, I can see them leasing one of Gloria Jean's Universal pictures and giving her a tribute too. Jean Porter was the wife of director Edward Dmytryk and was in several MGM films of the 1940s, which are in the TCM library so she'd be easy to honor, and she was very involved in film heritage and film preservation. So I can see them feeling obligated to include her. I guess we'll see who they choose. I doubt they'll honor Dorothy Malone again. They also won't honor Tab Hunter again. They will focus on these other ones.
