TCM Pays Tribute To Kerr

Turner Classic Movies will pay tribute to the late Deborah Kerr Sunday night with a double feature.

The vintage film network will salute the six-time Oscar nominee, who passed away Thursday at the age of 86, by airing films featuring two of her nominated roles. At 8 p.m., TCM will present From Here to Eternity (1953) in which Kerr portrays a lonely military wife seeking happiness through an illicit affair. The film co-starred Burt Lancaster, Donna Reed and Frank Sinatra.

At 10:15 p.m., TCM will spin the wheel on Separate Tables (1958), where Kerr plays a spinster dominated by her mother while staying at an English seaside resort. Lancaster, David Niven and Wendy Hiller also star.

“Deborah Kerr was one of the great jewels of the movie industry,” said TCM host Robert Osborne in a statement. “Not only was she an immensely gifted and versatile actress, but also someone who made every film she touched better.”
