Recommended Posts

I know there are only 24 hours in a day, and there are always rights issues, but dif you could add only 1 movie to each SUTS day this year, which would you add?

 

As for me, these would be my picks (I don't have one for each day since I'm not familiar with all this year's stars):

 

Jane Fonda - BAREFOOT IN THE PARK

David Niven - MURDER BY DEATH

Judy Garland - WIZARD OF OZ

Barbara Stanwyck - DOUBLE INDEMNITY

James Stewart - IT'S A WONDERFUL LIFE (hard to choose)

William Powell or Carole Lombard - MY MAN GODFREY

Marlon Brando - THE GODFATHER

Alexis Smith - HERE COMES THE GROOM

Cary Grant - NORTH BY NORTHWEST

Charlie Chaplin - LIMELIGHT

Claudette Colbert - THE PALM BEACH STORY

Paul Newman - THE STING

Thelma Ritter - ALL ABOUT EVE

Audrey Hepburn - SABRINA

Gladys George - THE BEST YEARS OF OUR LIVES

Joseph Cotten - SHADOW OF A DOUBT

 

How about you? :)

These are EXCELLENT CHOICES!!!!!! MIDNIGHT and DEAR BRIGITTE are two absolute favorites I feel like hardly anyone has seen. About REAR WINDOW-- there was a lack of Hitchcock this month, considering the stars they chose!

I thank you for your kind words.

 

There are so very many which would be excellent for David Niven. Murder by Death (1976) is an excellent choice. I wish they had aired also:  The Prisoner of Zenda (1937) but I must admit I wish it more for Ronald Colman than for David Niven. :)

 

I fear that: Dear Brigitte (1965) might never be aired on TCM. It is on irregular rotation on Fox channel. I doubt that they are eager to allow TCM to have it.

 

I find it odd that there are some days of this month when I can think of no better movies for those stars than those which they choose and there are other days when I could wish to replace all of the movies because I feel that their choices were very common and much-played and there are many less-well-known which deserve recognition.

This is one I'd heard about my whole life from my mom and always wanted to see it. Never could find it anywhere. FInally someone put it up on youtube and even in pan and scan from an old tape cut for TV it was hilarious and I loved it! I usually schedule it for the Programming Challenge because I'm obsessed with this movie being shown on TCM.

I'm sure I could list tons of movies for all these people, with the exception of just a couple, whom I've either never heard of, or haven't seen many of their films.  Based on a quick glance at everyone's filmographies, this is what I've come up with:

 

(Most of these I haven't seen, with the exception of a couple.  I was trying to go with films I'd like to see; but haven't or ones I've seen but don't own)

 

JANE FONDA- 9 to 5 (I've always wanted to see "Barbarella" too, lol)

DAVID NIVEN- The Bishop's Wife

WALTER PIDGEON- Too Hot to Handle

JUDY GARLAND- I Could Go on Singing

PAUL NEWMAN- The Long, Hot Summer

THELMA RITTER- Rear Window

LEE TRACY- No opinion

AUDREY HEPBURN- Two For the Road

ERNEST BORGNINE- The Poseidon Adventure

GLADYS GEORGE- Detective Story

DICK POWELL- Cry Danger (I read about it on this board, it sounded good; I also want to say The Conqueror, knowing that Powell directed it)
