The behind-the-scenes story of the making of an award winning Jimmy Stewart documentary narrated by Johnny Carson with rare, never-before-seen footage.

The Fred Astaire / Katherine Hepburn presentation which had its world premiere at the 3rd Annual Buffalo International Film Festival was invited for this years' Turner Classic Movies Film Festival in Hollywood!

For more than two decades, starting with their award-winning profile of Fred Astaire in 1980, Joan Kramer and David Heeley have documented the lives and careers of many Hollywood legends. In doing so, they have established a reputation for finding the unfindable, persuading the reluctant and maintaining unique relationships long after the end credits have rolled. Their productions includeFred Astaire: Puttin’ on His Top Hat (1980), Fred Astaire: Change Partners and Dance (1980), The Spencer Tracy Legacy: A Tribute by Katharine Hepburn (1986)and Katharine Hepburn: All About Me (1993), among many others. In this special event, Kramer and Heeley will illustrate their stories about Jimmy Stewart and Johnny Carson with fascinating behind-the-scenes footage, outtakes and a special surprise for Cary Grant buffs.
