Actor-producer-director is saluted via films and interview special
The entertainment world lost a beloved elder statesman with the passing of Norman Lloyd on May 11, and especially since he was a “friend” of Turner Classic Movies, it’s hugely appropriate that the channel is saluting the actor-producer-director with a full night of his work starting Monday, June 14, and stretching into the the next morning.
While viewers may have known him best for his role on the series “St. Elsewhere,” Lloyd had numerous credits by that time … sometimes as an associate of Alfred Hitchcock, on both sides of the camera. The tribute leads off with 1942’s “Saboteur,” which concludes with a hugely memorable scene that finds Lloyd’s character dangling from the top of the Statue of Liberty. Also included (twice) is Lloyd’s 2016 “Live From the TCM Classic Film Festival” interview special hosted by Ben Mankiewicz.
