Paris — Joseph L. Mankiewicz’s “Cleopatra,” Billy Wilder’s “Fedora” and Hal Ashby’s “The Last Detail” are among 20 restored film gems and three documentaries in Cannes Classics, announced today in Paris.
Helmed by Treva Wurmfeld, the doc follows the 50-year friendship of Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright and thesp Sam Shepard and Johnny Dark conducted via letters. Woodward’s presence in Cannes still has to be confirmed.
Bearing the imprimatur of delegate general Thierry Fremaux, Cannes Classics boasts a mix of pics by U.S. helmers — including a restored print of Ted Kotcheff’s “The Apprenticeship of Duddy Kravitz” — plus a wide spread of big-name French and European auteurs.
