The 2016 Festival will feature tributes to two screen legends that have had illustrious careers both in front of and behind the camera. Emmy-winning director-writer Carl Reiner will appear at a screening of his film DEAD MEN DON’T WEAR PLAID (1982) along with an extended conversation about his career. Actor Elliott Gould will introduce screenings of his Golden Globe nominated performance in M*A*S*H (1970) and THE LONG GOODBYE (1973) as well as participating in a detailed conversation on his career in Club TCM.

TCM is also bringing back “Smell-O-Vision” with the North American premiere of HOLIDAY IN SPAIN aka SCENT OF MYSTERY (1960) in a one-of-a-kind presentation at the Cinerama Dome, sponsored by Arclight Hollywood.
Festival attendees will also have a chance to enjoy the Harold Lloyd classic THE FRESHMAN (1925), which will be the opening night poolside screening featuring a live dj re-score from music supervisor Thomas Golubić.
