Hey! Dang! I found the greatest old classic movie channel today! They showed old classic movies all day long. Yay! 4:3, black and white, 1930s. Yay!

 

The channel ID says TCM. I think that means Turner Classic Movies.

 

Yay!

I thank you very, very much for posting this! :)

 

I had thought to compile such lists and post in the: Information, Please! forum so as to serve as a guide for people needing such information when creating their entries for: TCM Programming Challenge.

 

I believe you have done a much better presentation of the information than I would have been able to create. You have saved me also the work involved in creating such lists.

 

It is in that way that I owe you double thanks! :)

>I thank you very, very much for posting this!

 

You are most welcome.

 

This thread came about because someone asked in the Red Skelton thread if he had ever been Star of the Month. When I searched the forums, I found old incomplete lists (and thank you to other posters who began providing that information because it was a good place to start). But I also thought that the Summer Under the Stars information should somehow be included to see which performers are featured most often. It took a few hours to put it all together.

Here are some performers who, aside from occasional birthday tributes, have not been honored much by TCM.

 

_Suggestions for Star of the Month:_

 

1. *Melvyn Douglas.* Leading man and award-winning character actor. He has not had a SUTS day, though he deserves the highest honor.

 

19 films at MGM; 2 films at WB; 9 films at RKO

 

2. *Janet Leigh.* She has only been given one SUTS day. Her rise to stardom is a true Cinderella story, and she became an icon.

 

20 films at MGM; 3 films at WB; 3 films at RKO

 

3. *Jimmy Durante.* He's never had a SUTS day. But he was a big film and radio star in his day and is SOTM material. His motion picture career spans several decades and he was in some of the most entertaining musicals during the golden age of Hollywood.

 

19 films at MGM; 2 films at WB; 1 film at RKO

 

4. *Ann Miller.* She's only had one SUTS day. She was a legend, in hit films and stage productions. She deserves the recognition.

 

12 films at MGM; 0 films at WB; 9 films at RKO

 

5. *Howard Keel.* He's had one SUTS tribute. He should be SOTM because he was in some of the best musicals of the 1950s, and he later reinvented himself in westerns and again on television.

 

18 films at MGM; 1 film at WB; 0 films at RKO

 

6. *Patricia Neal.* She has never even been given a SUTS day.

 

3 films at MGM; 10 films at WB; 0 films at RKO

 

7. *Lew Ayres.* No tributes so far. Why not?

 

19 films at MGM; 3 films at WB; 1 film at RKO

 

8. *Ricardo Montalban.* An iconic film and television star who reinvented himself several times.

 

17 films at MGM; 2 films at WB; 0 films at RKO

 

9. *Shelley Winters.* She was given a SUTS day once. She had a long career on screen and received two Oscars.

 

7 films at MGM; 3 films at WB; 2 films at RKO

 

10. *Peter Lawford.* He was the quintessential movie star during the golden age of Hollywood. His personal life was equally noteworthy.

 

32 films at MGM; 3 films at WB; 1 film at RKO

_Suggestions for SUTS tributes:_

 

1. *Eleanor Powell.* She's never been honored for SUTS. If she had a more extensive filmography I would suggest her for SOTM.

 

12 films at MGM; 0 films at WB; 0 films at RKO

 

2. *George Murphy.* Why is he so overlooked? He could do it all.

 

19 films at MGM; 1 film at WB; 7 films at RKO

 

3. *Franchot Tone.* He should almost be considered for SOTM. He has an impressive film resume and was skilled in many genres.

 

30 films at MGM; 2 films at WB; 4 films at RKO

 

4. *Una Merkel.* Though she became more known as a character actress, she did play leads in her early films. She had a long and varied screen career.

 

40 films at MGM; 6 films at WB; 3 films at RKO

 

5. *Edward Arnold.* The consummate character actor and occasional lead of B-films. Worthy of recognition.

 

37 films at MGM; 5 films at WB; 3 films at RKO

 

6. *Maureen O'Sullivan.* More than Tarzan's mate, she made her mark in many films and her screen career stretched across a half century. She probably deserves consideration for SOTM.

 

34 films at MGM; 2 films at WB; 2 films at RKO

 

7. *Robert Walker.* Could handle comedy and drama with ease. His work deserves to be remembered.

 

17 films at MGM; 1 film at WB; 0 films at RKO

 

8. *Arlene Dahl.* She definitely made her mark, despite the fact that she did not make many films.

 

9 films at MGM; 4 films at WB; 1 film at RKO

 

9. *Madge Evans.* One of the brightest dramatic stars of the 1930s and worthy of recognition.

 

28 films at MGM; 1 film at WB; 0 films at RKO

 

10. *Lewis Stone.* The all-purpose character actor and go-to-man on the MGM lot when casting a beloved patriarch.

 

80 films at MGM; 6 films at WB; 1 film at RKO

 

11. *Jackie Cooper.* Can you believe that he has never had a SUTS day? Only a memorial tribute when he passed away.

 

10 films at MGM; 2 films at WB; 3 films at RKO; 5 films at Monogram

 

12. *Ann Rutherford.* Like Jackie Cooper, she received a memorial tribute, but she has not yet been honored during SUTS. I think it's time.

 

32 films at MGM; 1 film at WB; 2 films at RKO

 

13. *Laraine Day.* A no-frills leading actress who always turned in a credible performance.

 

19 films at MGM; 1 film at WB; 9 films at RKO

 

14. *James Craig.* He had a long and varied screen career and made the transition from leading man to character actor without a problem.

 

19 films at MGM; 1 film at WB; 7 films at RKO

 

15. *Virginia Weidler.* There's a whole thread devoted to her on this forum and even a special Remembrance Society.

 

20 films at MGM; 1 film at WB; 10 films at RKO

 

16. *Keenan Wynn.* Nabbed for scene stealing on more than one occasion!

 

50 films at MGM; 5 films at WB; 0 films at RKO

 

17. *Marsha Hunt.* One of the golden age of Hollywood's most versatile leading ladies. There's a reason she had a long and successful career.

 

23 films at MGM; 1 film at WB; 3 films at RKO

 

18. *Billie Burke.* There's no place like home when Billie Burke is in the house.

 

24 films at MGM; 4 films at WB; 8 films at RKO

 

19. *Gloria De Haven.* Underrated star, known mainly for musical roles.

 

16 films at MGM; 0 films at WB; 2 films at RKO

 

20. *Virginia Bruce.* She could handle any part that any studio assigned to her. Performed lead parts and secondary leads with class.

 

24 films at MGM; 3 films at WB; 2 films at RKO
