Tune in to TCM: Luise Rainer

Tonight, Turner Classic Movies will celebrate the 101st birthday of legendary screen actress Luise Rainer. The first person to win back-to-back Academy Awards (as Best Actress for her performances in The Great Ziegfeld and The Good Earth), Rainer will be feted with the world premiere telecast of Luise Rainer: Live from the TCM Classic Film Festival. The special features TCM host Robert Osborne's interview, which was taped at the premiere TCM Film Festival last year in Hollywood (our own Chris Carpenter attended the event; read his report here).

TCM will round out the birthday festivities this evening with presentations of Rainer's two Oscar-winning performances, as well as her memorable roles in The Great Waltz and Dramatic School.
