24 Hour Tribute to the Telluride Film Festival

Known as the "rarest jewel in the crown" of such cinematic events, the Telluride Film Festival has been held each Labor Day in the picturesque town of Telluride, in the San Juan Mountains of Colorado, since 1974. TCM presents a 24-hour tribute featuring films that have played at the Festival over the years, ranging from a restoration of King Vidor's silent classic The Big Parade (1925) that premiered at the Festival in 2007 to the TCM premiere of Neil Jordan's The Crying Game, which had its North American premiere at the 1992 Festival. Another exciting TCM premiere is a restoration of the French documentary Le joli mai (1963) which also enjoyed its North American premiere at Telluride, just last year.

Other highlights of the TCM tribute include The Most Dangerous Game (1932), produced by Ernest B. Schoedsack and Merian C. Cooper, from the 1976 Festival; The Garden of Allah (1936), which played in 1975 as part of a tribute to Selznick International Pictures' groundbreaking use of Technicolor; William Dieterle's Portrait of Jennie (1948), presented by critic David Thomson in 2013 as a comparison to Alfred Hitchcock's 1958 Vertigo; Jack Garfein's Something Wild (1961), which played in 2012 as part of a spotlight on the director; and Jim Sheridan's My Left Foot (1989), which had its North American premiere at the 1989 Festival.
