TCM to Honor Beloved Actor & Comedian Billy Crystal with Hand and Footprint Ceremony

Celebration to Take Place April 12 During The 2019 TCM Classic Film Festival

Turner Classic Movies (TCM) today announced it will honor iconic comedian, actor and author Billy Crystal with a hand
and footprint ceremony at the world-famous TCL Chinese Theatre IMAX® in Hollywood during the tenth annual TCM
Classic Film Festival on Friday, April 12. Crystal, a Tony Award® and six time Emmy® winner and Golden Globe®
nominee, has had a remarkable career from starring in cinematic classics such as The Princess Bride (1987), When Harry
Met Sally… (1989), City Slickers (1991) in addition to hosting the Academy Awards nine times.

“Billy Crystal has long been among the most versatile talents working in Hollywood. And I say “talent” because Billy is so
much more than an actor. Trying to define his career into a signature role or moment feels futile. Is it his lead performance
in When Harry Met Sally, the ensemble he led in City Slickers, or his scene-stealing supporting part as Miracle Max in The
Princess Bride? Then again, it might be his prodigious resume of voice acting work or his consistently impressive work
hosting the Academy Awards, which he’s done nine times (only Bob Hope has done it more). From Soap to Monsters, Inc.
Crystal has emerged as one of the great story tellers of his generation – on the big screen, the small screen, and in front
of a live audience,” said Ben Mankiewicz, TCM primetime anchor and official host of the TCM Classic Film Festival.
“For these and a fifty other reasons, we’re thrilled to be able to honor Billy for his contributions to this industry with a hand
and footprint ceremony outside the TCL Chinese Theatre."

This marks the ninth consecutive year TCM has featured a hand and footprint ceremony at the legendary TCL Chinese
Theatre IMAX®. In 2011, Peter O'Toole was the honoree, followed by Kim Novak in 2012, Jane Fonda in 2013, Jerry
Lewis in 2014, Christopher Plummer in 2015, Francis Ford Coppola in 2016, Carl and Rob Reiner in 2017 and Cicely
Tyson in 2018.

I do drop by and I'm glad to have company here, too, Chris! Unfortunately, we will have to wait until 2021 for more festival updates. Hopefully, Lily Tomlin and Leonard Maltin will drop by the festival next year to pick up their honors.

Unfortunately, the pandemic has cancelled the TCMFF 2020, but we had the wonderful Special Home Edition to enjoy with family and friends, and share with on social media. No word yet for TCMFF 2021, but whether in person or virtually, The TCM Film Festival Team will come up with a winner. See you virtually, for now!
Stay safe and enjoy classic films in the meantime!

I appreciate TCMFF fans who continue to enjoy these threads.
Take Care!

Somewhere buried in here is where I wanted to do an east coast version at my parents’ house. I thought it would be great fun to have Wendy and April and Teresa and others come down and watch as many of the same films as we could all the while snacking and having meals. I knew it wouldn’t happen but it was fun making crazy plans.

Hopefully, there will be a home version of the festival whether they have live or not. Let us know!

Thanks.
Chris
