TCM Recognized Three Whose Careers Impacted Film

     Each year, TCM Classic Film Festival pays tribute to a select group of individuals whose work in Hollywood has left a lasting impact on film. Throughout his prolific career, Bruce Dern earned critical praise and his first Academy Award nomination for his performance in Coming Home (1978) and another nomination for his performance in Nebraska (2013), both of which were screened at the Festival with Dern in attendance. Piper Laurie has worked with some of the most iconic directors and stars of classic Hollywood, while making a name for herself in Has Anybody Seen My Gal? (1952) and her Academy Award nominated turn in The Hustler (1961). Laurie introduced both films at the Festival. Floyd Norman worked as an animator on several Disney classics including The Jungle Book (1967). Norman introduced this film, which screened at the El Capitan Theatre in Hollywood during the Festival in April.
