GREASE is still the word on the red carpet of the 2015 TCM Classic Film Festival and original cast members Michael Tucci, Barry Pearl, Jamie Donnelly and Kelly Ward (l. to r.) stopped to tell me why.
For the sixth consecutive year, TCM Classic Film Festival comes to Hollywood in a celebration of not only classic movies, but the craftsman and artisans in front of and behind the camera who create the magic that is the movies. This year’s theme is HISTORY ACCORDING TO HOLLYWOOD. Be it the Old West, Medieval England, Ancient Rome or Prehistoric Age of Dinosaurs, Hollywood has found endless inspiration in bringing to life the historical moments that shape our world, melding past, present and future into one timeless experience. This year, TCM Classic Film Festival explores how the movies have shaped our view and remembrance of that history. Kicking off the 2015 TCM Classic Film Festival is perhaps the most beloved musical in the history of film – THE SOUND OF MUSIC. Join me on the red carpet as I talk with some of the stars who came out to celebrate not only THE SOUND OF MUSIC, but their own contributions to cinematic history!
