WHAT: The 2nd Annual TCM Film Festival
WHERE: Hollywood, CA
WHEN: April 28 - May 1
Last year cinephiles swarmed Hollywood's theaters for the inaugural TCM Film Festival. This year, the four-day long classic film fest has returned with over fifty films, beginning with "An American In Paris" hosted by star Leslie Caron on opening night. With themed screenings such as "The Film Music of George and Ira Gershwin," "Film Essentials," and "Disney's Musical Legacy," there will be something for everyone. Other films this year include "The Godfather," "To Kill A Mockingbird," "Spartacus," "The Day The Earth Stood Still," "Little Shop Of Horrors," "Breakfast at Tiffany's," "A Streetcar Named Desire," "Shaft," "The Trouble With Harry," and "Manhattan".
Some will remember last year's volcanic eruptions in Iceland took center stage causing delays and cancellations of some celebrity panelists. Fingers crossed, 2011 will go off without a hitch. Expected panelists and presenters include legends like Kirk Douglas, Alec Baldwin, Warren Beatty, and Peter O'Toole. Check out some of our top panel picks for TCM Fest 2011:
