Here are my few suggestions:

 

Walter Pidgeon

Chill Wills

Judy Garland

Van Johnson

Bogie (of course always my man Bogie)

Lauren Bacall

Warren Beatty

Bette Davis

Marlene Dietrich

Greta Garbo

Mae West

WC Fields

Fred Macmurry

Janet Lee

Angela Lansbury

Monty Clift

Tyrone Power

Marueen Ohara

Rita Hayworth

Jane Russell

Glen Ford

Elvis

James Dean, Marlon Brando combo day since JD only made 4 movies but is one of the biggest names in classic hollywood. Maybe they could have a method acting day,

Billie Burke (best part of the wizard of Oz, dont ya think)

Elizabeth Taylor

Vic Morrow (one of my favorite dudes of all time. See Tribute to a Bad Man with Cagney.)

Joan Blondell

Lyle Talbot (see-Murder in the Clouds for Lyle Talbot headlining public domain fun.)

 

 

Ya know different people like the ones I mentioned. There are some great supporting actors, etc, smaller named people that always made a movie great whenever they were in it, like Chill Wills, who i think should of gotten the oscar for The Alamo, if only because he tried so hard to get it and he makes any movie he is in just a little bit better and that should be appreciated.

Thanks for welcoming me back!

 

the reason I dont post much anymore is because i havent been able to afford cable in over 2 years and now that I possibly could, I dont want to waste my money JUST for TCM. So it feels like I cant really post without watching the channel, it just doesnt feel right, but I guess that is just silly.

 

and ANN SHERIDAN is a great suggestion. I add her too my list also her and Myrna Loy and Maureen Stapleton (Lonelyhearts! such a great movie and badly needed on DVD.

 

also I want to add to my list Jack Lemmon and Walter Mathu (sp?). So glad Plaza Suite is playing next week, that movie is one of his absolute best and who the heck names their daughter Mimsey! Hahahahahaha

Kimpunkrock, what a GREAT list you have. I liked that you included one of my favorites, Vic Morrow, on your list. He's not mentioned very often, but what a great, underated actor. He should have a day devoted to his films on TCM sometime. I also like the idea of James Dean and Marlon Brando "combo day"

 

Here is my list:

 

Lee J. Cobb

Vic Morrow

James Dean

Marlon Brando

William Holden

Vivien Leigh

Joan Crawford

Bette Davis

Shelley Winters

Paul Newman

James Cagney

Richard Widmark

Ralph Meeker

Aldo Ray

Burt Lancaster

Yul Brynner

Steve McQueen

Glenn Ford

Richard Basehart

Linda Darnell

Joseph Cotton

Dana Andrews

Charlton Heston

Karl Malden

Edward G. Robinson

Vincent Price

James Stewart

Frank Sinatra

Jerry Lewis

Greta Garbo

Claudette Colbert (ditto the Paramount comment)

 

Fred MacMurray (and ditto...)

 

Douglas Fairbanks Jr.

 

Marsha Hunt

William Haines - In 1930, Haines was the top box-office male star and Joan Crawford the top female .After involuntarily retiring from acting, he took up a successful, prolific, decades-long career as an interior decorator. Some of his clients included Carole Lombard and Mr. and Mrs. Fredric March. Also TCM could get the rights, and show the documentary _Out of the Closet, Off the Screen_: The Life of William Haines (2001)

 

 

Sonja Henie - She was a three-time Olympic Champion (1928, 1932, 1936), a ten-time World Champion (1927-1936) and a six-time European Champion (1931-1936). Henie won more Olympic and World titles than any other ladies figure skater. At the height of her acting career she was one of the highest paid movie stars in Hollywood.

 

 

Abbott and Costello - The Three Stooges are so "Over-Rated"!

 

 

B?la Lugosi

 

 

Fran?oise Dorl?ac - She was a French actress, too early and tragically disappeared.

She was the daughter of screen actor Maurice Dorl?ac and Ren?e Deneuve, and the elder sister of Catherine Deneuve.

 

Jane Russell -

 

 

Sheree North - After the success of "How to Be Very, Very Popular", North was groomed by Fox as the "new Marilyn Monroe". However, the studio soon focused attention on a new Monroe-esque actress, Jayne Mansfield. Decades later, North would play Monroe's mother in the 1980 television movie "Marilyn: The Untold Story".

 

 

 

Britt Ekland - A Swedish actress long resident in the United Kingdom. She is best known for her role of "Mary Goodnight" in the Bond movie "The Man with the Golden Gun",

I have some really weird suggestions but they are people we rarely, if ever, see on TCM. One of them is Will Rogers--he made his films at Fox. Another is William Boyd aka Hopalong Cassidy. TCM has shown a few of his pre-Hoppy films plus I wouldn't mind seeing the Hoppy movies too.

I happen to think of another person I'd like to see--Jean Gabin. I know a lot of people get burned out on foreign films, especially if there are a lot of them in one day, but I think he may have done a few films at Paramount in the early 40's before going back to France to fight in the resistance. Plus, he's made more than a few French films.
