And the festival offers much, much more, including the quintessential Rock Hudson–Doris Day movie, Pillow Talk; a restored version of Fritz Lang’s Metropolis, with added footage; a new print of Jean-Luc Godard’s Breathless, introduced by star Jean-Paul Belmondo; James Whale’s Bride of Frankenstein, with restored audio; appearances by directors Mel Brooks and Peter Bogdanovich, writer Buck Henry, stars Jerry Lewis and Norman Lloyd, special effects master Douglas Trumbull, and numerous others; and panels on many aspects of filmmaking
For those who can’t get to the festival in Los Angeles, TCM is airing special festival-related programming the same weekend and presenting one-night “Road to Hollywood” screenings in five cities leading up to the fest. The Boston, Chicago, New York, and Washington, D.C., events have already taken place, but there’s still time to make the screening in San Francisco (The Lady From Shanghai, April 21).
