TCM on the Road to Hollywood
An interview with Turner Classic’s Ben Mankiewicz
Turner Classic Movies is sponsoring its annual TCM Classic Movie Festival in Hollywood April 25-28. In order to build up buzz for this fan-service festival filled with films and famous celebrities, the network honchos have organized a special “Road to Hollywood” tour. Touching down in 10 cities across America, the tour features cinema from Hollywood’s golden era (Forbidden Planet, On the Waterfront, Cabaret, Rio Bravo), hosts culled from TCM’s on-air talent pool (Ben Mankiewicz, Leonard Maltin, Robert Osborne) and big-name guest stars (Eva Marie Saint, Angie Dickinson, Liza Minnelli, Robert Wagner).
