TCM just announced that they will be honoring Jane Fona at this years TCM film festival. She will have her cement prints done at Grauman's, that's right I'm still calling it Grauman's, what kind of history is there to TCL Chinese Theatre?? TCM will also be screening On Golden Pond with an introduction by Jane and hopefully some interviewing by Robert Osborne.
I don't think it really had anything to do with it, but I did suggest last year on my survey that they get Jane and or Peter. I'm sure a lot of other people thought so too. It is true that Jane Fonda doesn't seem to get the same level of attention as Sally Field and other actresses of her generation. I suppose that is probably because she has taken some long breaks, but I'm happy she'll be getting gushed over at the TCM Film Festival.
I do wish they would show some of her earlier films like Barefoot In The Park, Sundays In New York, and I'm sure there would be a sell out audience for Barbarella. Oh well, happy to be getting what we got. Now the long wait till April 25th.
There have been some murmuring about Barbra Striesand coming to the opening night screening of Funny Girl. If that actually happens this Film Festiva lwill be completely insane. Every year it gets bigger and bigger, which is a bit sad but great for TCM and great to reach more fans. We'll just have to wait and see.
Hope to see you there!
