Latest TCM Classic Film Festival Announcements

Yesterday the TCM Classic Film Festival announced details on the festival's 2019 opening night movie.

Billy Crystal, Meg Ryan, and director Rob Reiner will be on hand opening night for a 30th anniversary presentation of WHEN HARRY MET SALLY (1989).

WHEN HARRY MET SALLY was written by Nora Ephron and costars Carrie Fisher and Bruno Kirby. Sadly Ephron, Fisher, and Kirby have all passed on.

I wish it weren't so difficult to get into the opening night screening as it would be great to be able to be there. I've seen the film several times over the years and like it a great deal, giving it an "Honorable Mention" in a 2014 post about my favorite films of the past 25 years.

A small number of titles were also announced for the festival yesterday: MAD LOVE (1935) with Peter Lorre; THE CLOCK (1945) with Judy Garland and Robert Walker; LOVE IN THE AFTERNOON (1957) with Gary Cooper and Audrey Hepburn; and INDISCREET (1958) with Cary Grant and Ingrid Bergman. I haven't seen the latter film in years and would love the chance to revisit it at the festival.

As always, I will share further festival details here as they are available.
