TCM Classic Film Festival Opening Night Red carpet
Shirley Jones came out to celebrate the World Premiere of the Restoration of Oklahoma! Which was originally released in 1955. It starred the late Gordon MacRae and newcomer Shirley Jones who was the leading lady. Marty Ingals walked down the red carpet proudly displaying a sign with 37 years, the number of years he’s been married to Shirley Jones. She told us that she would not be jumping out of an airplane to celebrate her 80th birthday.
TCM host Leonard Maltin talked about the various versions of Oklahoma!
TCM host Ben Mankiewicz and Ileana Douglas (guest speaker for “I Never Sang for My Father”) laughed as they posed for cameras. Mankiewicz shared about the TCM Family and how people feel protective over the movies.
Tippi Hedren “The Birds” and Kim Novak “Vertigo”, both Alfred Hitchcock alumni enjoyed each other so much on the red carpet, we thought we had lost both of them for interviews.
Margaret O’Brien “Meet Me in St. Louis” talked about her dear friend Mickey Rooney and brought his hat signed by Ann Miller when they did “Sugar Babies”
Alec Baldwin (guest speaker for “A Hard Day’s Night”) brisky walked by on the red carpet.
Valerie Azlynn and Vivian Bang “Sullivan & Son” had everyone laughing, especially Bang’s style then revealed that Vince Vaughn is series on set.
Robert Gossett “Major Crimes” and Jon Tenney “Scandal” were in their own world. After working together in “Major Crimes” and “The Closer” since 2005 they seemed like besties at an event.
The TCM Film Festival continues through April 13, 2014 in Hollywood
