Ed welcomes singer/actress Constance Towers (General Hospital, The Horse Soldiers, Sergeant Rutledge, Shock Corridor, Perry Mason, The King and I). The American Cinematheque will honor Constance Towers at the Eqyptian Theater in Hollywood on Sunday, January 27 as part of a special evening that will include a screening of The Naked Kiss, the iconic film by Samuel Fuller that sparked controversy when it was originally released in 1964, but which has grown in stature ever since—in large part due to Connie’s performance. Connie will be interviewed that night by film historian Foster Hirsch following the screening. For more information, go to AmericanCinemathequeCalendar.com. Constance Towers will also appear at the annual Beverly Hills Theater Guild luncheon, which will take place on Sunday, March 17 at the Four Seasons Hotel in Beverly Hills. Honorees at this year’s luncheon will include Oscar winner Eva Marie Saint and her late husband, television director Jeffrey Hayden; longtime television writer/director Howard Storm; and legendary Hollywood agent Budd Burton Moss. The program will also include a tribute to the films and television series of Garry Marshall. For more information, call (310) 765-1605 or go to BeverlyHillsTheaterGuild.com.
