Hello followers! I figured for those of you fellow film lovers who follow me for some silly reason, I might entertain you with some tales from the TCM Film Festival in LA at the Roosevelt Hotel that I am attending this weekend with my family. The Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel, you may know, has serviced many stars over the years such as Douglas Fairbanks, Shirley Temple, Clara Bow, Charlie Chaplin, Clark Gable, Marylin Monroe, who is actually said to haunt the place, and many more. It also hosted the first ever Academy Awards ceremony in 1929. Situated in the heart of the Hollywood Walk of Frame, it is right across the street from the Grauman’s Chinese Theater where many of the movies of the festival will be screened. Specials guests and screenings this year include Kirk Douglas presenting 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea, Liza Minnelli presenting Cabaret, Kim Novak, who is also getting her handprints cemented at the Chinese theater, is presenting Vertigo, and Debbie Reynolds will present Singing’ in the Rain and How the West was Won. Tonight we will be viewing the poolside screening of High Society and also be seeing Sabrina at Grauman’s. Not only is Audrey’s wonderful film be showing, but the famous dress she wears is also on display here at the festival. Pictures coming soon! ** Fun fact: Robert Osborne has a big, square head!
