Gene Hackman as SOTM September 2016

Thanks for sharing the link. 

 

We've had Robert Redford and now Gene Hackman. Time for TCM to feature an actress from the 70s & 80s as Star of the Month...preferably someone like Faye Dunaway, Sally Field or Julie Christie.

I wouldn't be surprised if Faye Dunaway gets a turn as Star of the Month in 2017, when TCM premieres her Live from the TCM Classic Film Festival interview.

Fingers crossed. Faye Dunaway would be a great honoree. I almost mentioned Jane Fonda in my earlier post, but I'm not sure if she'd go over too well.

Keep an eye out for this: Robert Duvall has narrated a newly produced TCM tribute to his friend Gene Hackman. It's available now to TCM Backlot members and will premiere on-air on September 1, with several repeats thereafter throughout the month.

 

Duvall does a grand tribute to Gene Hackman and I'm glad TCM did this.  Lately many of the SOTMs have not had a separate tribute (as they used to) and have simply been "featured" among other special programming on the "This Month on TCM" promo. Wonderful insights into Hackman by a fellow actor and a friend.
