That dress on Tippi Hedren is stunning, Tippi is stunning too and so classy.

And she still looks great. I love that black dress on the pink background. Stunning. But don't you think she might have felt silly in such formal attire just to wear a bird on her arm? I know I would. But it's a fantastic publicity still, a fabulous dress, and lovely subject! Thanks, Allison. :lol:

After we've all been tingled, frightened, afraid, scintillated and savaged by the spooky October screenings on TCM, I realized something is just around the corner, and it's not Christmas I'm pondering. At least not yet.

I've been doing a little research, and it seems that, according to my information, passes for the Turner Classic Film Festival 2012 went on sale on Wednesday, November 9, 2011. Spotlight passes were sold out by 4 p.m. that afternoon, and Essential passes were sold out on Wednesday, November 16, 2011, by 6:10 pm. (CST)

So stay tuned if you plan to join the fun April 25-28 at the historic Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel in 2013! Announcements could pop up in your favorite email accounts at anytime. You can also stalk the announcements by following this link: http://www.tcm.com/festival/

Gala Screening of Newly Restored Funny Girl (1968) To Launch Fourth Annual TCM Classic Film Festival

Vanity Fair Returns for Fourth Year as Festival Partner and Co-Presenter of Opening Night After-Party
Turner Classic Movies (TCM) will open the 2013 edition of the TCM Classic Film Festival with the world premiere of a brand new restoration of the musical classic Funny Girl (1968). TCM’s own Robert Osborne, who serves as official host for the festival, will introduce Funny Girl to kick off the four-day, star-studded event taking place Thursday, April 25 – Sunday, April 28, 2013, in Hollywood. In addition to Funny Girl, the TCM Classic Film Festival will feature world premiere restorations of The General (1926), Giant (1956) and The Great Escape (1962), with many additional titles to be announced later.

Passes for the 2013 TCM Classic Film Festival are set to go on sale to the public Thursday, Nov. 15, at noon (ET). Passes can be purchased exclusively through the official festival website: http://www.tcm.com/festival.

Also announced today, Vanity Fair will serve as official partner for the TCM Classic Film Festival for the fourth consecutive year. Vanity Fair will co-present the after-party following the gala opening-night screening of Funny Girl.

Restored in 4K from the original camera negative by Sony Pictures Colorworks in celebration of its 45th anniversary, Funny Girl stars Barbra Streisand in her Oscar®-winning performance as Ziegfeld Follies comedienne Fanny Brice. Omar Sharif co-stars as high-rolling entrepreneur Nicky Arnstein, with Hollywood veteran William Wyler in the director's chair. Adapted from the popular Broadway musical that earned Streisand a Tony nomination, Funny Girl features a score by Jule Styne and Bob Merrill. Among the many memorable songs featured are "People" and "Don't Rain on My Parade," both of which became signature Streisand hits.

Among the first films slated for the 2013 TCM Classic Film Festival are three perennial favorites to be screened for the first time ever in restored editions:

The General (1926) – World Premiere Restoration
Buster Keaton's timeless Civil War comedy returns in a newly restored edition presented with a live score written and performed by the Alloy Orchestra. For this restoration, The General was scanned from the original nitrate camera negative and restored through the collaborative efforts of the Cohen Film Collective, the Library of Congress Packard Campus for Audio-Visual Conservation and TCM.

Giant (1956) – World Premiere Restoration
George Stevens directed this sprawling adaptation of Edna Ferber's Texas saga starring Elizabeth Taylor, Rock Hudson and James Dean. This 4K restoration from the original camera negative was completed by Warner Bros. Motion Picture Imaging under the direction of George Stevens Jr.

The Great Escape (1963) – World Premiere of 50th Anniversary Restoration
Steve McQueen heads an all-star cast in this blockbuster World War II tale based on actual events. The Great Escape was restored by Metro Goldwyn Mayer Studios at Deluxe Digital Media using a 4K scan of the original camera negative.

Sue Sue... do you know whether using one's CitiCard reduces the prices of the tickets or not?

I don't think so. Go to the website on the link. There is an extra $15 fee that TCM doesn't charge. There might be some unadvertised incentive that you might be offered. They also include an application if you don't have a CitiCard.

I'm just thinking about CitiBank horning in. You can order even earlier buy purchasing with Citi, but we'll charge you $15.00 extra.
