Aboslutely Glenda Farrell and Mary Astor should be SOTMs. Shocked

that Mary Astor hasn't already been one. (And, "Summer Under The Stars"

does not "sub in" for SOTM.)

As noted Joan was SOTM. I watched most of those movies and the thing was that sometimes it looked like Cagney was SOTM instead of Joan. i.e. Joan was the lead female star in these movies by since they were Warner Bro films with Cagney as the lead the male part was king. But of course this was true for most actresses in most WB films, other than with Bette Davis.

 

Still Joan is always fun to watch. She always makes me smile.

I also would love to see Mary Astor as Star of the Month. I created a thread over a year ago suggesting Astor to get a month long salute on TCM since I was very surprised to see she has never been SOTM.

 

She's become one of my favorites. Keeping my fingers crossed!!

I dont understand what the hold up is with Mary Astor. She played plenty of leads so she qualifies. And they have access to many of her films. Dont get it.........

really interesting to see the SOTM list! I see some months/stars I missed years ago and wish they would bring them back for another month. Also interesting to see who hasn't been SOTM yet.

 

I noticed in the late 90s, they would have a theme in December "best of '97" and "best of '98"--would TCM show modern movies from that year? That was before I was a regular viewer so I'm curious about that.

I didn't have TCM then either. I am guessing it was an annual review of the highlights of TCM from the past year.

 

Remember, at that time, TCM was still very new to the cable universe and many persons were just getting the channel added to their cable systems throughout the 1990s. (Actually, even through the mid-2000's.) I think this was a way to provide a "sampler" of a year's worrth of programming so that new subscribers would know what the past year was like and let them know the kind of programming to be found on TCM.

 

But I am pretty sure it had nothng to do with showing modern movies.
