Hollywood fest fetes Jewison

Helmer to be honored with unspooling of 'Moonstruck'

Norman Jewison, the Hollywood Film Festival’s Lifetime Achievement Award recipient for direction, will be honored Sunday with an unspooling of “Moonstruck” followed by an onstage question and answer session featuring special guests. The event will take place at 8:30 p.m. at the Paramount Theater.

The 1987 critical and box office hit “Moonstruck” received six Oscar nominations, winning three for actresses Cher, Olympia Dukakis and John Patrick Shanley’s original script. Jewison received nominations as both director and producer.

One of Hollywood’s movie lions, Jewison began his directing career in Canada prior to moving to the U.S., where he made his name in television variety with the groundbreaking “The Judy Garland Show.” His film career began in 1962 at Universal with “Forty Pounds of Trouble” starring Tony Curtis and he received his first major critical attention three years later with the Steve McQueen vehicle “The Cincinnati Kid.”

Jewison received his first Oscar nomination in 1966 for “The Russians Are Coming, the Russians Are Coming” and the following year he directed “In the Heat of the Night” which received five Oscars including best picture. His other hit films include “The Thomas Crown Affair,” “Fiddler on the Roof” and “Rollerball.”
