“`So much going on at this year’s TCM Classic Film Festival. Let me recap…

“`Day 1 highlights included a reunion of the TCM hosts (who had been physically separated for over two years) and the red-carpet screening of E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial.

“`Day 2 highlights included the Lily Tomlin hand and footprint ceremony in front of the TCL Chinese Theatre and a special screening of the restored version of Giant. George Stevens Jr., the son of the acclaimed director, was in attendance.



“`Day 3 –  I had the opportunity to interview TCM hosts Ben Mankiewicz and Eddie Muller. I was part of a round-table with fellow journalists as we chatted with Leonard Maltin.  He later received the prestigious Robert Osborne Award. A splendid retrospective preceded the official presentation. The accolade was awarded to Maltin by iconic actor Warren Beatty.



“`Of course, there were screenings of motion pictures and plenty of cinephiles on hand to give the festival a return-to-home feel. This is the initial live event put on by TCM since before the pandemic.


“`Thanks to my friends at Celebrating Act 2  (Art Kirsch and John Coleman), I have more on the way, including of a video tour of the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel, TCL Chinese Theatre, interviews with super fans of TCM from around the country and plenty of bonus content!

Until next time>                               “never forget”
