Prince,

 

I would go with *Renee Adoree.* She has definitely allot more surviving films, and movies that have already been restored than *Billie Dove* does.

 

I'm not sure what films of *Billie's* that Warner's even has? Maybe *THE YELLOW LILY (1928)* is the only one of her *First National Silents* that is still around. There may be others, but I don't know what they are? I'd like to find out though. Maybe there are some films I don't know about?

 

*Colleen Moore* and *Billie Dove* are the most ignored among the Silent Stars where the rights are largely owned by Warner's. I've seen about 3 Billie Dove Talkies, but that is all. None of Colleen Moore's Silents or Talkies on TCM. Discounting *THE BUSHER (1919)* which is an early Public Domain film.

WHITE ZOMBIE

ISLAND OF LOST SOULS

THE BLACK CAT

THE RAVEN

MARK OF THE VAMPIRE

SON OF FRANKENSTEIN

FRANKENSTEIN MEETS THE WOLF MAN

I would like to see the Star of the Month be the supporting actors and actresses in classic film such as Alan Jenkins and the actress who always played the other woman in many films, Gail Patrick. TCM should give notice for a month to the supporting cast of actors and actresses in classic movies. They have been ignored for much too long in my opinion

What a great idea. Pick a 2 or 3 days each week of the month and feature, say, 2 character actor per each of those days. This would allow for around 16 to 24 actors.

 

I would start with Walter Brennan, to me #1 when it comes to character actors but there are so many and they need to get their due! Jenkins was in so many great movies like Dead End, Balls of Fire, etc... Gail Patrick was a very fine actress and who can forget her as the bad gal in My Man Godfrey or the other women (wife), in My Favorite Wife.

Without a doubt I and many I know would love to see Frank Sinatra re-featured. It was exactly two years ago this month he was finally Star of the Month. At the time I had absolutely no idea he had made so many films, musicals drama, thrillers, comedy, westerns, war and just about every imaginable type of film one can come up with. He won a Oscar and other nominations and almost all his movies were top notch because that was what he was. But it goes beyond even his great films. Every Weds. when he was featured his kids (who luckily are still with us) were on the set with Robert Osborne giving very insightful info. the kind we never get on any of the other star of the month actors. Tina, Nancy and especially Frank Sinatra Jr. provided so much additional info about each film that made it so much more enjoyable. Frank Sinatra Jr. was on the set for many of his dad's films and his story telling kept me glued to the set. Unfortunately at that time I had a job that required me to get up early so I missed several of their commentaries and discussions. Now I could stay up for all of them. Our group of 27 at the Clubhouse 25 out of the 27 all voted for the same return of frank for Star of the Month for the reasons I just listed!!!

With so many stars never given their due on TCM as SOTM, what we do not need are any repeats, especially Sinatra.

I agree that there should be no repeats at least for 3 - 4 years. I would like to see Leslie Howard be SOTM since he never has and he is a first rate actor and star in my view. Yea he died young and thus didn't make a lot of movies like some others but there are enough first rate movies to have him be SOTM.

 

Also a good idea someone here had was for character actors to get their due. Freature a guy and gal one month a year or something like that before repeating someone.
