Classic musical fans, take note. The 2014 edition of the TCM Classic Film Festival will open with the world premiere of a brand new restoration of Rodgers & Hammerstein’s “Oklahoma!” TCM's go-to host Robert Osborne will introduce the film, with Oscar-winning star Shirley Jones in person.
Other recently announced highlights from the upcoming festival include director William Friedkin, who will attend with the U.S. premiere restoration of his now revered cult classic “Sorcerer” (1977); Kim Novak, with “Bell Book and Candle” (1958); actor Ryan O'Neal, who will introduce “Paper Moon” (1973); documentarian Albert Maysles, returning to the fest with “Grey Gardens” (1975); and three-time Oscar-winning film editor Thelma Schoonmaker (“Raging Bull,” “The Aviator,” “The Departed”), who will participate in a special conversation.
And there’s a lot more happening at this year’s fest; full lineup here.
Now in its fifth year, the TCM fest runs April 10-13, 2014, in Hollywood. This year it coincides with TCM's 20th anniversary.
