Actress Luise Rainer, who recently celebrated her 100th birthday, is
scheduled to make a rare public appearance in what is certain to be one
of the most eagerly anticipated events at the TCM Classic Festival in
April. Rainer will introduce the 1937 drama The Good Earth, which
earned her the second of two consecutive Academy Awards*. Also
attending will be legendary actor, filmmaker and humanitarian Jerry
Lewis, who is scheduled to introduce a new print of Martin Scorsese's
acclaimed comedy-drama The King of Comedy (1983), and veteran actor,
director and producer Norman Lloyd, who will introduce a screening of
the Alfred Hitchcock classic Saboteur (1942). Rainer, Lewis and Lloyd
join an extensive roster of celebrities scheduled to appear at the
festival, including Mel Brooks, Tony Curtis, Jon Voight, Martin Landau,
Buck Henry, Peter Bogdanovich, Susan Kohler Weitz and Juanita Moore.



In addition, director Richard Rush has agreed to be on-hand for the
presentation of his 1980 film The Stunt Man; film critic and historian
Leonard Maltin will curate and present a special program of notable
shorts; and author Donald Bogle will introduce and discuss a collection
of cartoons removed from circulation because of negative racial
stereotypes.



The following are the latest highlights announced for the TCM Classic
Film Festival:



The Good Earth (1937) - Introduced by Luise Rainer

Austrian-born actress Luise Rainer earned the second of two Oscars* for
her extraordinary performance as a Chinese woman whose life and family
are nearly destroyed by greed. Paul Muni is equally powerful as her
loving husband in this adaptation of Pearl S. Buck's classic novel.
Karl Freund's outstanding cinematography also earned an Oscar. Rainer,
who recently turned 100, will be making a rare appearance to introduce
the film.



The King of Comedy (1983) - Screening of new print introduced by Jerry
Lewis

Martin Scorsese's acerbic comedy stars Jerry Lewis as television's top
host and Robert De Niro as the man determined to get on his show.
Diahnne Abbot, Sandra Bernhard, Shelley Hack, Tony Randall and Ed
Herlihy co-star.



Saboteur (1942) - Introduced by Norman Lloyd

Alfred Hitchcock's wartime thriller stars Robert Cummings as a fugitive
munitions worker falsely accused of sabotage. Priscilla Lane co-stars
as the woman who helps him clear his name, and Norman Lloyd provides the
perfect touch as the villainous Fry. The climax atop the Statue of
Liberty is one of Hitchcock's most memorable sequences.

All screenings – more than 50 in all – will include special introductions to provide context about each film. Among the
numerous talents slated to attend and talk about their work are Mel Brooks, Luise Rainer, Jerry Lewis, Tony Curtis, Jon
Voight, Martin Landau, Buck Henry, Peter Bogdanovich, Norman Lloyd, Susan Kohner Weitz, Juanita Moore,
director Richard Rush and special effects artist Douglas Trumbull, with more to be announced

The festival will involve several venues in a central area of Hollywood, including screenings at Grauman’s Chinese
Theatre and the Egyptian Theatre. The Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel, which has a longstanding role in movie history and
was the site of the first Oscar® ceremony, will be the official hotel for the festival as well as a key venue for festival
passholders.
