The TCM Classic Cruise is a new cruising experience taking place Dec. 8-12, 2011. Turner Classic Movies has unveiled the first slate of events for the voyage, which will feature film legends Ernest Borgnine, Tippi Hedren, Eva Marie Saint and Norman Jewison, along with Turner Classic Movies primetime host Robert Osborne, TCM weekend-daytime host Ben Mankiewicz and the Alloy Orchestra. They will join classic-movie fans for the four-day voyage aboard Celebrity Millennium, sailing from Miami to Key West and Cozumel.
The following is the first roster of events lined up for the TCM Classic Cruise, with additional events and programming to be announced soon.
Hitchcock Blondes: Eva Marie Saint and Tippi Hedren
Oscar winner Eva Marie Saint and Golden Globe winner Tippi Hedren will sit down to share their memories of working with director Alfred Hitchcock. Fans will also be treated to two of their films with the director, North by Northwest (1959), starring Saint as a seemingly innocent bystander drawn into a case of mistaken identity with Cary Grant, and The Birds (1963), with Hedren as a spoiled heiress who finds herself in an avian nightmare with Rod Taylor.
A Conversation with Ernest Borgnine
Ernest Borgnine will sit down with TCM host Robert Osborne for an in-depth conversation about the 94-year-old Oscar winner's storied life and career.
Key Largo in the Keys
TCM will present a special screening of the dramatic thriller Key Largo starring Humphrey Bogart, Lauren Bacall, Edward G. Robinson, Lionel Barrymore and Oscar-winning supporting actress Claire Trevor.
A Poolside Affair
TCM invites passengers to a poolside screening of An Affair to Remember (1957). Cary Grant and Deborah Kerr star in the tale of a couple who falls in love on a cruise, then makes arrangements to meet later on the roof of the Empire State Building.
A Night at the Opera on the Ocean
TCM will screen the Marx Brothers comedy A Night at the Opera (1935), featuring a memorably hilarious scene in which 15 people are crammed into a stateroom on board a ship.
Speedy and the Alloy Orchestra
The Alloy Orchestra, an innovative three-man musical ensemble that has written and performed live accompaniment to classic silent films for more than two decades, will perform their original score for Harold Lloyd's comedy Speedy (1928) during a special screening.
Guests will also enjoy a variety of movie-themed events, including live music, dancing and classic movie trivia contests for prizes.
