I just got done reading: 'Hellraisers: The Life and Inebriated Times of Richard Burton, Richard Harris, Peter O'Toole and Oliver Reed' .... .....So a day of films too: Richard Burton, Richard Harris, Peter O'Toole and Oliver Reed would be awsome!!



Esp. Richard Burton!!

*Elizabeth Taylor - Show more obscure & rare films like: Zee and Co (1972), The Blue Bird (1976) & Night Watch (1973)!*


*Bluebird* is tied up in rights issues. It was a Russian and US co-production and isn't very good.


As for the other two, they would be better on *TCM Underground* with *The Big Cube* starring Lana Turner, as neither of those Taylor pics are very good either.

I think a Summer Under the Stars of character actors is a great idea. There were so many wonderful actors and actresses that almost always helped carry the films they appeared in. There are no real character actors around today , if they are then they escape me for the moment. and giving these greats their due would be, well, overdue... And Marie Windsor should be at the top or in the top 10. She was wonderful. She had that Eve Arden ability to slap someone down with a wise crack that only Arden and a few others had the talent to do......

> Marie Windsor in The Killing and The Narrow Margin was fantastic. She may not be considered a conventional beauty, but I thought she was very sexy...



In his (great) book on film noir Dark City, author Eddie Muller describes Windsor as such:

"5'9, statuesque, and with a balcony that could support a double run of pinochle."

Sadly, I'm sure all these suggestions are for naught. At least for this year. I'm sure they've been set already............

Fantastic lists you've all come up with! Although it will never happen, I would like to see Conrad Veidt featured as one of them. I'm dying to see his rare English films like Rome Express, King of the Damned, I Was a Spy, F.P.1, The Wandering Jew, The Passing of the Third Floor Back, Bella Donna, etc.

It may be a few years before TCM does a Summer Under the Stars tribute to Morgan Freeman, LP, but I wouldn't mind seeing a few of his films for an evening (especially since greats Denzel and Meryl received that honor last year, which I enjoyed BTW).
