   I’ve been personally invited next week to a private screening to enjoy one of the great actors of Hollywood’s Golden Age: James Coburn. The event is part of the KCET Cinema Series. The motion picture on tap is the 1966 classic Blake Edwards film, What Did You Do in the War, Daddy? (I’ve never seen), a stylish comedy that also starred Dick Shawn, Aldo Ray, Harry Morgan, and Carroll O’Connor. The screenplay was written by William Peter Blatty. Henry Mancini wrote the score. As a special tribute to their sponsor, the James and Paula Coburn Foundation, each season KCET pulls a film from the archives starring the legendary screen actor, and proclaim the evening as James Coburn Classic Film Night.

   Film expert and Deadline.com writer Pete Hammond hosts their Q&A’s following each film. Next week’s Q&A guest is producer / actor Ken Wales. Alternating between the historic Aero Theatre in Santa Monica and the ArcLight Theatre in Sherman Oaks, KCET’s film series celebrates the most anticipated independent and studio films prior to their release in theaters (with the exception of the always anticipated James Coburn Night).

   The JPCF is a tax-exempt private foundation that supports charitable organizations devoted to the arts and sciences. Their mission to sustain and develop the Coburns’ legacy, as bequeathed to the LA Philharmonic, LA County Museum of Art, Clairbourn School, KCET Community Television, Motion Picture & Television Fund, and Operation Smile; in addition to, charities involved in the conduct of treatments or cures for cancer and the care of indigent cancer patients. The foundation is committed to upholding the Coburns’ dedication to local and international advancement through music, art, and education, as well as, physical and spiritual health. The JPCF is organized as a 501(c)3 charitable trust and operates its main office in Los Angeles, California.
