   Join TCM hosts Robert Osborne and Ben Mankiewicz and thousands of classic film fans in the heart of Hollywood next March 26th-29th for the 2015 TCM Classic Film Festival!

   This year’s main theme mirrors the Forgotten Hollywood Book Series and franchise that includes this site, a weekly radio show, and a documentary currently in production, History According to Hollywood, will explore how filmmakers have often created works about the past that are a reflection of the period in which they were made, or change facts to suit a particular storyline. They invite you and movie lovers from around the world to join us to create our own history as we gather in Hollywood for the 6th annual TCM Classic Film Festival next March.

1939-The-Hunchback-of-Notre-Dame   As part of our historical exploration they are thrilled to announce the first four world premiere restorations that will be shown at the Festival:

APOLLO 13 (1995) – Tom Hanks, Kevin Bacon, Gary Sinise, and Bill Paxton star in director Ron Howard’s extraordinary chronicle of the failed Apollo 13 lunar mission and the efforts to bring the astronauts home safely.

~ THE HUNCHBACK OF NOTRE DAME (1939) – Charles Laughton plays Victor Hugo’s tragic Quasimodo and Maureen O’Hara stars as Esmeralda in director William Dieterle’s lavish production of the oft-told tale.

Keaton_Steamboat_Bill_Jr_1928~ SPARTACUS (1960) – Kirk Douglas plays the title role, and served as producer on Stanley Kubrick’s engrossing tale, of a slave who became a gladiator and went on to challenge the might of the Roman Empire.

~ STEAMBOAT BILLJR. (1928) – Presented with composer Carl Davis conducting a live, world premiere performance of his new score. Buster Keaton stars as the son of a paddle-steamer captain in love with the daughter of his father’s business rival in this dazzling silent comedy.
