Congrats

On Christmas Eve, Carl Reiner and wife Estelle will toast their 64th wedding anni. They were married at N.Y.’s City Hall  with comedian Bernie Hern in attendance. The Reiners were re-tied in a religious ceremony with family two weeks later.  They celebrate Monday evening, as always — just the two of them cooking dinner at home — “and Robbie sends over caviar.” Estelle is planning a return to the Gardenia in Feb.

Carl has agreed to return as M.C./host of the DGA Awards on Jan. 26. He had said “Never again” after he rejected the group’s Lifetime Membership Award.  “I don’t want it,” he said, and handed the trophy to Steve Martin, who in turn became emotionally overcome (comically, of course).  Reiner, still laughing over the incident, has now agreed to again host — but not receive any “honors.”

But he will receive honors April 5 when he accepts the Backlot Film Festival’s Thomas Ince award at the Veterans Memorial Building Auditorium. Reiner recalls filming “The Comic” on the Culver  City lot with Dick Van Dyke, Michele Lee and Mickey Rooney. The Reiner-Aaron Rubin production office boasted a picture of Thomas Ince hoisting a giant megaphone with the caption reading: “Notice the technique of directing!” “It must have been for crowd scenes,” Reiner imagines of those loudspeaker-less, pre-bullhorn days of today.
