TCM to host another classic film fest

Cable network prepping second classic pic gala

A second edition of the TCM Classic Film Festival is in the works.

Cabler, which just wrapped up the inaugural event this weekend in Hollywood, said that it was going forward with another fest for spring 2011.

Announcement was made Sunday night by primetime host Robert Osbourne, prior to the unspooling of a restored version of 1927 pic “Metropolis.”

“It’s been a thrill for all of us at TCM that our first classic film festival has been such a success, so we’re definitely going to do it again,” said Osborne, the official host of the festival. “It’s been great fun bringing together so many legendary stars and movie fans in a place where they could interact and, at the same time, see great films. To paraphrase Bogart in ‘Casablanca,’ I think this is the beginning of a beautiful tradition.”
