The Jean Gabin and Toshiro Mifune days from the last couple of years were very welcome additions to the lineup. I'd like to see days for...(and some films to show)


Anna Karina (Le Petit Soldat, A Woman is a Woman, Pierrot le Fou, La Religieuse, Chinese Roulette)

Setsuko Hara (Sound of the Mountain, Repast, Late Spring, Tokyo Twilight, The Idiot)

Hideko Takamine (Hideko the Bus Conductor, Lightning, 24 Eyes, Floating Clouds, Yearning)

Marcello Mastroianni (Le Notti Bianche, La Notte, The Stranger, City of Women)

Sounds good to me. How about a day for Japanese director Seijun Suzuki? His 50s/60s Japanese noir are great, and rarely seen. Of course *Branded to Kill* and *Tokyo Drifter*, his best known, should be shown, but most any other film of that era, by him, would be a treasured rarity.

If TCM wants to target a new audience, perhaps a Jack Nicholson or a Harrison Ford day could do it. Some mainstream PR around that day could draw some younger eyeballs to the station.A Charles Bronson day does raise the possibility of running the infamous DEATH WISH films - make sure their start times are when TCM Underground would be on the air, since that's the only place much of Mr. Bronson's later oeuvre would ever make it on TCM. :) Kidding, of course.

Great choices, Nora! Since Dame Maggie is popular again these days, she would be an excellent choice for the contemporary star. I appreciate the way you've included stars from different decades, because that's how TCM does it. They work about six months in advance, so if they haven't chosen their 31 stars for this year, they will soon.

Intriguing mix. TCM could very well do something similar, although a few days no doubt will be reserved for SUTS semi-regulars, or even a few stars who have been underserved (e.g., Clark Gable, who's only appeared in 2003 and 2009). Oh, and if we're actualy doing Frank Morgan and Eugene Pallette this year, why not fellow character acting greats Walter Connolly and Una Merkel in 2014?

Thanks all, for the compliments. :)


I did try to mix it up a bit, knowing my own biases (American, 1930s, etc.).


VP19, you're right, of course. I'm sure we'll see several Bogart, Stewart, and/or Hepburn-type days (nothing against them). Connolly and Merkel are both great choices, and I'm kicking myself for omitting Ann Harding!


A 2014 list is already taking form in my head . . . :^0

VP19 : Agree with you on the Clark Gable SUTS day. Gable { and any other star born in Feb } always gets the shaft because 31 days of Oscar steals the whole month from them and they TCM cannot have a birthday tribute to them { wouldn't it also be nice if TCM captured the rights to play some of his non-MGM films } A pity, I say.
