There are about ten I'd like to see get a Summer Under the Stars day. First, I want to thank TCM's programmers for honoring Dorothy Malone last year...I felt her recognition was well-deserved. Also, TCM honored others in recent years like Ricardo Montalban and George Sanders that were equally deserving. 

Okay, these are the ones I'd like to see given their due in August:

Screen%2Bshot%2B2015-12-07%2Bat%2B11.11.

Carole Landis
George Murphy, lots of RKO and MGM films
Margaret Rutherford, representing character actresses
Lee J. Cobb, representing character actors
Sally Field, representing the 70s and 80s
Farley Granger
Yvonne De Carlo
Robert Preston
Julie Andrews
Lee Van Cleef, lots of spaghetti westerns

Great choices.  I'd also like to see Carole Landis, George Murphy and Sally Field.  I also really liked Margaret Rutherford in Blithe Spirit

Wow! Lots of people I've never even heard of, which isn't a bad thing of course.  I would also enjoy a Linda Darnell or Gale Sondergaard day.  Allison Hayes is the lady in Attack of the 50 Foot Woman, correct?

Good calls on George Murphy, Robert Preston (esp. if they show BEAU GESTE) and Margaret Rutherford. I'd ask for:

Robert Donat
Jean Arthur
Jean Seberg
Louis Calhern
Shelley Winters
Van Heflin
 

I would also entertain any of these selections, especially Jean Arthur and Jean Seberg.

I wonder HOW LONG it took some of you to dig up all those obscure character actor/actress names on a couple of those lists.  :D  ;) 

And if some are going THAT route, let's add:

ELISHA COOK Jr.

NEVILLE BRAND

STROTHER MARTIN

ROBERT WILKE

JAMES WESTERFIELD

ALAN HALE

ANTHONY CARBONE

;)

My wish list (in no particular order):

Ann Sheridan, Ida Lupino, Gloria Grahame, Donna Reed, Annette Funicello, Roy Scheider, Donald O'Connor (so underrated), John Gavin, Troy Donahue, Hugh O'Brian, Gloria DeHaven, Eve Arden, Dorothy Lamour, Ava Gardner, Robert Montgomery, Robert Young (long overdue), Tyrone Power, Burt Lancaster, Gregory Peck, Charles Bronson, Yul Brynner, and Robert Vaughn.

Some of these are long shots, but we'll see.

Heh....Yeah, and in many cases, I'm surprised if MOST of the names listed DIDN'T get a SUTS day(or days).  ;)

Sepiatone

May the odds ever be in your favor. (Sorry, but I had to dig up that old Hunger Games reference.)

Well, since I've never seen ANY of THE HUNGER GAMES movies or television presentations, and since the books only go back 10 years(or thereabouts), that reference really isn't all that "old" is it?  ;) And therefore, new to me:)

I think TopBilled offered a comprehensive list of stars in alphabetical order that have never been given a Summer Under The Stars day.  It was on a thread under 'TCM Programs', and while I admit I didn't look very hard for it, I wasn't able to locate it right away.

Anyway, depending on the length of each film, you could get about 10-15 or so movies featuring a man or woman who have a big enough body of work to feature.  Some of my favorites I'd like to see include:

Ralph Meeker, Virginia Grey, James Craig, Harry Morgan, Frank Morgan, Spring Byington, Lucile Watson, Gladys George, Ray Danton, Ethel Barrymore, Yvonne De Carlo, Dan Duryea, Lisabeth Scott, Burl Ives, Orson Wells, Suzanne Pleshette, Ray Collins, Turhan Bey, Wendy Hiller, Flora Robson.

Once again, TCM's programmers are letting TCM Backlot members select two honorees this year, from four options. Backlot members have to select between Robert Ryan and Joel McCrea for the male stars, and Ruth Roman and Ruth Hussey for the female stars.
