Restored 'An American in Paris' to open TCM Classic Film Festival


A 60th-anniversary restoration of the Oscar-winning musical "An American in Paris" will be the opening-night film for the TCM Classic Movie Festival that will run April 28 to May 1, 2011 at Hollywood's Chinese and Egyptian theaters.

The screening of the musical will be part of the festival's tribute to songwriters George and Ira Gershwin.

The festival will also screen the 70th-anniversary restoration of "Citizen Kane" as part of a broader salute to composer Bernard Herrmann on the 100th anniversary of his death.

Other highlights of the festival include a tribute to "King of the Singing Cowboys" Roy Rogers, and a celebration of silent-movie music featuring Buster Keaton's last silent comedy, 1928's "The Cameraman," which will be presented with a score of vintage jazz and popular music performed live by Vince Giordano and the Nighthawks.

Passes for the festival will go on sale Nov. 3 at
