Kim Novak to appear at American Cinematheque tribute

Kim Novak is scheduled to be on hand for the kickoff of an American Cinematheque tribute to the No. 1 box office star of 1956-58 at the Egyptian Theatre in Hollywood this month.

She’ll appear for a question-and-answer session about her career on July 30 between screenings of “Bell, Book and Candle” (1958) and “Pal Joey” (1957).

The tribute will continue that weekend with screenings of “Picnic” (1956) and “Middle of the Night” (1959) on July 31 and “Vertigo” (1958) on Aug. 1.

Novak, 77, who now lives in Oregon, was also feted by American Cinematheque in 2004. The new tribute is being co-sponsored by Sony Pictures Home Entertainment, which on Aug. 3 will be releasing a three-disc DVD set, “The Kim Novak Collection.”

Tickets can be purchased at the Egyptian or at Information: (323) 466-3456.
