Liza Minnelli, Joel Grey and Debbie Reynolds are among stars scheduled to appear at the 2012 TCM Classic Film Festival. The 2012 TCM Classic Film Festival will take pace Thursday, April 12 – Sunday, April 15, 2012, in Hollywood.
The festival will feature the North American premiere of a new 75 th anniversary restoration of Jean Renoir’s powerful POW drama Grand Illusion (1937), widely regarded as one of the greatest films ever made. The Mont Alto Motion Picture Orchestra will provide a live musical accompaniment for a screening of the silent Douglas Fairbanks fantasy-adventure The Thief of Bagdad (1924).
Minnelli and Grey are slated to join TCM’s own Robert Osborne to kick off the four-day, starstudded event with a gala opening-night world premiere screening of the 40th anniversary restoration Cabaret (1972), the film for which the two stars took home Academy Awards.®
Reynolds will make her second appearance at the TCM Classic Festival, appearing at the world premiere screening of a new 60th anniversary restoration of Singin’ in the Rain (1952).
Reynolds will also appear at a 50th anniversary screening of How the West Was Won (1962), which will offer festival passholders the rare opportunity to see the epic western in all its Cinerama glory at Arclight Cinema’s Cinerama Dome.
