My friend Deb Adair's charming hubby Al, who works for LAPD, also related an interesting tale about a professional call he made at the Hollywod Roosevelt Hotel in the 1990's, and I'll have more about that a little later...

Don't forget to have fun!

The third annual Turner Classic Movies Film Festival held in Los Angeles at the historic Hollywood Hotel was the place to see and be seen this past week. Festival passholders from as far away as India, Scotland, and Nova Scotia, as well as 49 of the contiguous United States were well represented, as well as many Houstonians who were also swept up in filmdom fervor. The popular film channel also celebrated its 18th birthday with hosts Robert Osborne, Ben Mankiewicz, film favorites Robert Wagner, Peggy Cummins, Margaret O’Brien, Kim Novak and many others attending the festivities with hundreds of TCM Film Festival 2012 passholders dressed in their finery.

Early festival goers were able to catch a glimpse of Hollywood’s “Dress of the Century,” the Audrey Hepburn inspired Givenchy creation for the 1954 film *Sabrina* . The lovely gown was on loan for the festival from the Audrey Hepburn’s Children’s Fund, and was a popular exhibit in the heart of Club TCM, a gathering place for passholders and panel discussions, situated in the “Blossom Room,” the sight of the first Oscar ceremony in 1929.

Even before the first official event of the festival began at 1 p.m.on Thursday, April 12, glitterati were circling the famous pool and its environs. On Tuesday evening, an after- screening cocktail party for crew and fans of *Waiting for Lightening* , a documentary film seven years in the making, was held by the Hollywood Roosevelt pool bar, where Marilyn Monroe modeled for photographers early in her career. Oscar-nominated Emmy winning sound mixer Deb Adair, whose last film was *Moneyball* with Brad Pitt, was in attendance at the *Waiting For Lightening* premiere with her husband Al, an L.A.P.D. officer who has collaborated with crime novelist Joseph Wambaugh on several of his award-winning detective novels.

Ms. Adair revealed that her work as a sound mixer allows her the privilege of collaborating with directors so that she can “make films come to life with sound” because “sound is half the experience of going to a movie.”

Rob Dyrdek from MTV’s *Ridiculousness* was also spotted at the poolside party Tuesday night.

hlywdkjk, a very salient observation and subtle request from the Zen Master. I agree 110%!

Yes Sue,Sue, the resemblance between Osborne and Wagner is uncanny!. By the by, would you be a "dahling" and tell me again how to get the instructions on posting photos? The west may have been won, but so far I'm losing the picture battle! Please help!

What struck me most about the Wagner/Osborne conversations last weekend were how much they enjoyed each other's company. And how they joked with one another. It was like they were channeling Hope and Crosby. In fact, TCM should just put the two of them on "The Road To Hollywood" next year. Just make sure to film it. I think there is a fun road-trip documentary to be found there.

During the Q&A after The Longest Day, they joked about how they looked like they could be brothers. Indeed! Great pix. Wolfie

On Wednesday afternoon, there was a definite buzz in the lobby of the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel as Robert Wagner was being interviewed by Robert Osborne, who said that he had known Robert Wagner for many years, and that he was one of the nicest men he had ever met.

And they both were adorable! The topic of passholder conversation
revealed that everyone thought they looked marvelous, and classy.

What else would we say about men representing, discussing, and supporting Turner Classic Movies?

Robert Wagner took time out from his guest duties to sign autographs for eager fans.

Since Sue Sue's other thread has some issues with access, I've started another thread to post about the fun at this year's *TCM FILM FEST 2012*.
