I think most of the ones you mentioned are worthy. I would add Dorothy Malone, an Oscar winner and smoldering screen presence who does not seem to get the recognition she deserves.

Good list. Chaplin already has been featured twice on Summer Under The Stars, and is scheduled again from what I was told. But May Pickford and Douglas Fairbanks have never been featured. A gross oversight to be sure.

 

The have enough of Renee Adoree's films for her to be featured easily I believe. Janet Gaynor would be a great choice. Clara Bow, can't be done, because there are not enough movies yet that TCM has access to. Same is likely true of Dolores Del Rio, but most of the films they would schedule would probably be talkies.

 

For sound films. How about Julie Andrews, and Jacqueline Bissett? Maybe we could finally get *THOROUGHLY MODERN MILLIE* again, and a debut of *WHO IS KILLING THE GREAT CHEFS OF EUROPE?* Would like to see Veronica Lake or Ella Rains.

Hey speed, August has 31 days, not just 25 ;) I respect your choosing of favorites, some make my favorite list too. But I would hope that the choices for SUTS would meet 2 criteria ; First, NO repeats from last year, and second about a third of the of the choices would be people who have never been honored before. That would bring forth some notable "character actors" who have always been a big part of making good movies.

Nothing wrong with you're list, but you might want suggest it for 2015. It's highly likely that TCM had all the 2015 stars picked months ago and have been working on getting specific films.

Thanks. I wasn't counting the names-- just listing favorites and I couldn't think of any more. I know William Holden and Bette Davis were honored last year; but I still enjoy their films and wouldn't mind another SUTS. I see that a lot of people want to see the character actors honored, which I appreciate. While I do occasionally recognize the character actors from film to film, I don't really remember a lot of their names.

 

There are a few character actors that I do like (and remember their names), Alan Hale and Sydney Greenstreet, for example, tend to be paired up with some of my favorite actors, so I figure it'd be a win-win in that case.

 

I still stand by my list add a few names just to complete August; but for me personally, days dedicated to my favorite actors would more likely draw me to TCM then days dedicated to people I haven't heard of (not that I'm unwilling to "hear of them"). I usually get my copy of "Now Playing" halfway through the previous month and I'll peruse it and circle the films I want to record. My recording criteria are if the film stars actors that I like (or were directed by people I like) and just want to see their work or if it's a film I've heard of and always wanted to see. I don't typically just sit and watch TCM regardless of what is on. I usually either record or tune in specifically to watch something that I have been planning on watching or that I enjoy watching.

>That's probably true... though perhaps a few names could be subject to change for various reasons.

 

I agree. It's February, and only the schedules through May are complete. In all likelihood, they have not finalized the schedules for the summer months yet. In fact, I would bet that they are probably working on the SUTS lineup as we write this. So this would seem to be a good time to make a few suggestions...

I think if they ever feature him for SUTS (which in my opinion they should), they might save his films for the primetime hours and spend the early morning hours showcasing other 'gone-too-soon' matinee idols, like Robert Francis and Tom Pittman (Pittman died a very similar death). It could make for an interesting day/theme.

This is not a hasty choice on my part. Watching Richard Todd in THE HASTY HEART earlier today caused me to look at his film credits. He was in a lot of excellent movies. I think he'd be a fine addition to any SUTS lineup.

I'll just stick with my first choices, male and female:

 

Douglas Fairbanks, Jr. *sigh* Be still my heart. :)

 

douglas-fairbanks-jr-138883.jpg

 

The most luminously-sad (or sadly-luminous) pair of eyes to grace the silver screen, Sylvia Sidney:

 

Sylvia[iSidney[/i]2.jpg]

 

Yeah, I know - I need Universal to play nice.

 

And I enthusiastically second Gagman's request of Who Is Killing the Great Chefs of Europe? - if not for Jacqueline Bisset, then for Robert Morley. He's positively delicious in it! :D

Nora,

 

I don't know if you get the Encore channels on cable. But Sylvia Sidney was in a rerun of Magnum P.I. last night called 'Birdman of Budapest' from 1983. It will be rebroadcast on Monday afternoon, the 17th. She is excellent in this episode-- I just was blown away by her. She never lost her acting chops. Great performer, even at an advanced age.
