|In the Heat of the Night (1967) 50th anniversary red carpet premiere|
Greetings from Hollywood! The first day of the 2017 TCM Classic Film Festival kicked off with a bang. The opening night picture In the Heat of the Night (1967) had a 50th anniversary celebration with guests including Sidney Poitier, Lee Grant, Norman Jewison, Walter Mirisch, Quincy Jones and Scott Wilson. I was on the red carpet and had the opportunity to interview some of the guests. Full coverage and video is coming very soon. Here is a sneak peek. (And no I didn't see Sidney Poitier unfortunately. It'll be my greatest TCMFF failure.)
Stay tuned for my interviews with Dick Cavett, Stathis Giallelis, Todd Fisher, Leonard Maltin, author Beverly Gray and more.

After dinner at Boardner's with bloggers Danny, Kim and Jeff, my husband Carlos, and Marya of TCM, I headed over to the Chinese Multiplex to catch Requiem for a Heavyweight (1962) with Jeff and Wade of The Retro Set.
I'll have much more to come on future posts and recaps. See you in La La Land.
