“`This year,  Cinecon 53 is honoring a true cinematic legend: Norman Lloyd. The 102-year old actor has had an eighty year career.  An original member of Orson Welles’ Mercury Theatre troupe, his movie credits include Alfred Hitchcock’s Saboteur and Spellbound.  Lloyd was a director and producer of many episodes of  Alfred Hitchcock Presents;  and starred in St. Elswhere. Norman will be on hand to receive the prestigious Cinecon Legacy Award.

“`This year’s festival takes place in Hollywood, from August 31st through September 4th.  Loew’s Hollywood Hotel is the host venue, with all screenings at the historic Egyptian Theater, just down the street on Hollywood Blvd.

“`The fest will open with a gala reception in the forecourt of the Egyptian Theatre, followed by a David Shepard tribute screening of a classic — Steamboat Bill Jr., starring Buster Keaton. Famous Players Orchestra shall provide live musical accompaniment for the film.

“`Cinecon 53 will also feature special programs, as well as a movie memorabilia show at Loew’s Hollywood Hotel, 1755 N. Highland Ave. in Hollywood. Patrons may purchase rare movie stills, posters, lobby cards, and other collectibles in the dealer’s rooms, and have books signed at their author’s tables.

“`I’m hoping to spend another memorable time at Cinecon 53, autographing copies of my Forgotten Hollywood Book Series for interested readers.

Until next time>                               “never forget”
