Liza Minnelli, Joel Grey, Debbie Reynolds and "Baby Peggy" Diana Serra Cary will be attending the 2012 TCM Classic Film Festival, scheduled to take place in Hollywood from April 12-15.  Film noir actresses Peggy Cummins, Rhonda Fleming and Marsha Hunt will also be on hand.

This year's TCM Festival (which costs a pretty penny to attend) presents the North American premiere of a 75th anniversary restoration of Renoir's 1937 war drama "Grand Illusion," as well as a screening of the Douglas Fairbanks silent film, "The Thief of Bagdad," accompanied live by the Mont Alto Motion Picture Orchestra.

The festival will kick off with a gala (and world premiere) screening of the 40th anniversary restoration of "Cabaret," accompanied by Grey and Minnelli  (both actors took home Oscars for their turns in the 1972 musical film).  Other programming through the weekend includes an appearance by Reynolds at the premiere screening of the 60th anniversary restoration of "Singin' in the Rain," the U.S. premiere of "Baby Peggy: The Elephant in the Room," a documentary by Vera Iwerebor about Diana Serra Cary's life, and a tribute to Audrey Hepburn as part of TCM's "Style in the Movies" celebration.
