* Director John Landis will host its sequel Son of Frankenstein (1939)

The last surviving cast member Carla Laemmle will appear at a screening of Dracula (1931)

   Other wonderful highlights: An offering of A Night To Remember  to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic; a visit by Director William Wellman’s son at an 85th remembrance screening of Wings; a 50th anniversary showing of Dr. No, hosted by former Bond Girls, Eunice Grayson and Maude Adams; and a poolside presentation of High Society, which starred Grace Kelly, Frank Sinatra, and Bing Crosby, at the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel.
