I would be okay with Lee Marvin if TCM would actually put some effort into being comprehensive. Let's go all the way from pre-Big Heat (whatever that was, I don't really know) up to at least Gorky Park.

Chaplin is getting an SUTS day in August, so the chances of him being SOTM in September are next to nothing, I would think.

I'd be all for a Dana Andrews month.

I don't know how I missed that. Thanks!

I think that's a good suggestion.

I’ll keep hoping for Danny Kaye.  But if not Danny Kaye this September?  Either

Charlton Heston.

John Wayne.

Dustin Hoffman

Dean Martin again or

Jack Lemon.  If it’s John Wayne?  I’ll get to catch up on all his movies I missed last time he was SOTM for five days or whatever it was.  If it’s Dustin Hoffman?  I loved it when they showed Hook here on TCM last summer when they had him for SUTS.  If it’s Dean Martin again?  Maybe they’ll show the Matt Helm franchise again.  Those were great.  Jack Lemon would be great too and Charlton Heston is one of the all time greats.  I missed him when they had him for SUTS a few years ago.  So if it’s Charlton Heston?  I’ll get to catch up on a whole bunch of his movies too.  My first choice is Danny Kaye.  I know most of his films are out of the TCM library.  But I’ll still keep hoping.  Because he would be a really great SOTM.  He’s great.

Dustin Hoffman would be a good choice. I'm in favor of that! :)

They had a Dustin Hoffman SUTS day last year, I think, but he certainly has enough important films to qualify for a SOTM, if TCM could obtain them. It would be a nice kiss if they could honor some of these stars while they're still alive. I was sad to read Tony Curtis had always hoped for his own SOTM spotlight while he was still with us but never got one.

I'm stunned there's no thread from anyone on here announcing the September schedule yet. I hope someone posts a link soon, since I may not remember how to access it otherwise.

I guess people have been busy doing other things.

Would you mind sharing where the schedule is? All my efforts have been fruitless.

Sure. For some reason it won't let me access September 1st, so the way around that is to start with August 31st. Then September 1st folllows.

I was looking at births for 1920 on wiki.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1920#Births

In October, it would have been the 100th birthday for:

Walter Matthau (October 1)
Laraine Day (October 13)
Montgomery Clift (October 17)
Nanette Fabray (October 27)

Will any of them be chosen Star of Month...?
