Kim Novak to Be Honored at TCM Festival

The 2012 TCM Classic Film Festival will honor actress Kim Novak with a multi-tiered celebration of her extraordinary career. Among the events, Novak will have her hand and footprints enshrined in concrete in front of Grauman’s Chinese Theater.

She will also join TCM host Robert Osborne for an in-depth conversation to be taped in front of a live audience for airing on TCM later. And she will introduce a screening of Alfred Hitchcock’s suspenseful classic Vertigo (1958). The TCM Classic Film Festival takes place Thursday, April 12 – Sunday, April 15, in Hollywood.

Novak and Osborne’s conversation will air on TCM next year as an original special entitled Kim Novak: Live from the TCM Classic Film Festival. The chat will be taped Friday, April 13, at The Avalon.

Novak’s hand and footprints ceremony will take place Saturday, April 14, in front of Grauman’s Chinese Theater. This marks the second consecutive year TCM has featured hand and footprint ceremony at Grauman’s Chinese Theater. Last year, Peter O’Toole was the honoree.

Novak will also introduce a festival screening of Vertigo at Grauman’s Chinese Theatre. The film, which features one of Novak’s most powerful and seductive roles, is considered by many to be Hitchcock’s best film.
