The number of cool events taking place this weekend in Hollywood at the 2013 Turner Classic Movies (TCM) Film Festival is head-spinning.
Saturday alone, there’s Jane Fonda getting her hand and footprints done at the Chinese Theatre; Ms. Fonda making an appearance at the screening of On Golden Pond; and more. For example, two hours before SNL usually cold-opens on the east coast, there is also this 6:30 p.m. PT event: a screening of the classic Western Shane introduced by Bill Hader.
Hader is getting ready to host his third season of Essentials Jr. in June and also jumped in last fall as a TCM guest programmer. The four movies he picked for viewers in September included efforts by Billy Wilder and Akiro Kurosawa.
A festival rep tells FishbowlLA that Shane is another one of Hader’s personal favorites and that he wanted to be a part of the brand new DCP print screening. Attendees can count on a warm, funny introduction and – who knows – maybe an impromptu Al Pacino version of the famous line, “Shane… Shane… Come back!”
