Carl Reiner - Carl Reiner And Sid Caesar To Be Honoured At L.a. Jewish Film Festival
Veteran actor Carl Reiner and his late comedian pal Sid Caesar will be honoured at the upcoming Los Angeles Jewish Film Festival.
The 92-year-old Ocean's Eleven star will be given the lifetime achievement prize, while his colleague Caesar will be remembered in a special memorial tribute on the opening night of the ninth annual event on 1 May (14).
Tv icon Caesar, who passed away in February at the age of 91, will be honoured with a screening of the 1973 documentary Ten From Your Show of Shows, which is a compilation of skits from his 1950s variety programme, on which Reiner served as a writer.
Everybody Loves Raymond executive producer Phil Rosenthal will present the awards for Caesar and Reiner during the film festival launch gala in Beverly Hills.
