TCM's 8th annual Classic Film Festival is set for April 6 - 9 in Hollywood, and this year's central theme is Make 'Em Laugh: Comedy in the Movies...if there was ever a year we needed some laughs...
|Joel McCrea, Claudette Colbert and Rudy Vallee in The Palm Beach Story|
But the festival will include more than comedy. Special guest writer/director/actor/film historian Peter Bogdanovich will be on hand for screenings of two of his finest, the screwball homage, What's Up, Doc? (1972), with Barbra Streisand and Ryan O'Neal (and Madeline Kahn!), as well as the Oscar-winning drama The Last Picture Show (1971), Jeff Bridges' first major film. Other non-comic fare to be showcased will include the 1925 silent version of Stella Dallas and the film noir crime thriller, The Underworld Story (1950).
