I was just thinking yesterday and just now that Jim Backus would also make a great SOTM too.  Maybe it will happen sometime.  If we’re lucky.

I highly doubt Jim Backus,   a character actor,  will ever be Star of the Month.       While I wish TCM would feature character actors (say a different one each week),   there are at least 50 character actors that have a film legacy with higher qualify films than Backus.

You mean 50 quality episodes of Gilligan's Island don't qualify?

Then you would have to have Natalie Shafer in the same month as Jim Backus because what is Thurston Howell III without Lovie?

This guy:Image result for mr. magoo

 

Backus was in some fine films;  My favorite is the noir His Kind of Women,   where Backus plays a slimy gambler after much younger married women by cheating their husband in cards.
