  1. It's been several years since I've seen The Last Sunset, Seconds (perhaps Rock's best performance), and Pretty Maids All in a Row. I hope to revisit these in June!!
  2. Yes, Franchot Tone is great in this film. I prefer his performance in The Lives of a Bengal Lancer to his Oscar-nominated performance in Mutiny on the Bounty.
  3. I like your pick of Thomas Mitchell. I thought he was included on my list... Edited by: sweetsmellofsuccess on Feb 20, 2014 6:36 AM
  4. That's probably true... though perhaps a few names could be subject to change for various reasons. Maybe some actors on my list could be included.
  5. Here's mine: James Cagney Miriam Hopkins George Kennedy Lawrence Tierney Donald Sutherland Claire Trevor Edward G. Robinson Van Johnson Diane Keaton Sydney Greenstreet Rod Taylor Joan Leslie Richard Barthelmess Franchot Tone Monica Vitti Jack Elam Juano Hernandez Ward Bond Angie Dickinson Peter Ustinov Claudia Cardinale Jason Robards Lee Van Cleef Laurence Harvey Charles Bronson Edmond O'Brien William Powell Jack Warden Eli Wallach Setsuko Hara Bruce Dern Audrey Totter Warren Oates Edited by: sweetsmellofsuccess on Feb 12, 2014 7:09 AM
  6. Loved her in Lady in the Lake and The Set-Up. Maybe she'll be included for Summer Under the Stars next year?
  7. A pretty interesting mix here. I'm looking forward to seeing Heston, Deneuve, Holden, Balsam, McQueen, Gable, and Beery.
  8. I'll just use my first-timer list from a previous thread (and maybe add one or two): Paul Muni Sydney Greenstreet Jean Simmons Dean Martin Mickey Rooney Joan Fontaine Melvyn Douglas William Powell Richard Barthelmess Simone Signoret Anna Magnani Jeanne Moreau Lilli Palmer Walter Brennan Madeleine Carroll Richard Burton Alain Delon Walter Huston Eleanor Parker Agnes Moorehead Gena Rowlands Jason Robards Herbert Marshall Arthur Kennedy Patricia Neal Eli Wallach Lee J. Cobb Warren Oates Charles Bronson Harrison Ford Jeff Bridges Jack N
  9. I really like the choice of Thomas Mitchell for SUTS. He was a first-rate talent!

  11. I was blown away by Simone Signoret's performance in Room at the Top. Her Oscar was well-deserved, though Audrey Hepburn in The Nun's Story was also superb.
  12. Thanks!! A few cases such as Magnani, Signoret, or Madeleine Carroll, I've only seen a few of their films, but have been blown away by their performances so far. SUTS would certainly be a good way for me (and, of course, everyone) to see more their work.
  13. I'm surprised Paul Muni, Sydney Greenstreet, Jean Simmons, Dean Martin, Mickey Rooney, Joan Fontaine, Melvyn Douglas, and William Powell haven't been a part of the SUTS yet. I'd love to see them included, as well as hopeful first-timers Richard Barthelmess, Simone Signoret, Anna Magnani, Jeanne Moreau, Lilli Palmer, Walter Brennan, Madeleine Carroll, Richard Burton, Alain Delon, Walter Huston, Eleanor Parker, Agnes Moorehead, Gena Rowlands, Jason Robards, Herbert Marshall, Arthur Kennedy, Patricia Neal, Eli Wallach, Lee J. Cobb, Warren Oates, and Charles Bronson. If TCM includes a more recent
  14. Bring Me the Head of Alfredo Garcia... terrific Peckinpah film, with a great job by Warren Oates!
  15. I saw the DVD print of The Sea Hawk a few years ago, and it looked pretty good to me. I'm surprised TCM hasn't been able to get a copy of it. Maybe it's a rights issue, I have no idea. The film is excellent, and it's time for me to revisit it. I've always liked The Sea Hawk even more than Captain Blood and The Adventures of Robin Hood, bonafide classics as well.
  16. Looking forward to seeing: Marilyn, Van Heflin, Ginger Rogers, Toshiro Mifune, James Cagney, Lillian Gish, Anthony Quinn, and Gene Kelly. Maybe Sidney Greenstreet next year?
  17. Thumbs up to TCM for honoring Joel McCrea. He's terribly underrated... and I like him as an actor a little more than Gary Cooper. He's a natural on-screen, and fit well in just about every genre. I was (pleasantly) surprised to read that Katharine Hepburn felt McCrea should have been compared with other great actors like Spencer Tracy and Humphrey Bogart. That's quite a compliment!
  18. I also would love to see Mary Astor as Star of the Month. I created a thread over a year ago suggesting Astor to get a month long salute on TCM since I was very surprised to see she has never been SOTM. She's become one of my favorites. Keeping my fingers crossed!!
  19. I'm stunned that Ginger Rogers has been included in the SUTS lineup only once, and James Cagney only twice. The last time was 2005!!! I definitely wouldn't mind seeing either star included this year.
  20. William Wyler?! I wouldn't mind seeing him in the spotlight for a month-long salute to his films, though. He directed a ton of classics. Edited by: sweetsmellofsuccess on Feb 13, 2012 3:23 PM
  21. In terms of Summer Under the Stars predictions, I'll say Marilyn Monroe, James Mason, Melvyn Douglas, and Tyrone Power. I like the selections of Sunrise, Diabolique (which I haven't seen yet), Alice Doesn't Live Here Anymore (underrated Scorsese), and Summertime.
  22. In terms of silent stars, I wouldn't mind seeing Richard Barthelmess added to the SUTS lineup this year. He made plenty of silent films, several of them I would love to see, and his performances in the 30s are splendid.
