Kathleen Turner Receives Lifetime Achievement Award From Cinema St. Louis

By  | 

The husky voice was unmistakable as that of the star of WHO FRAMED ROGER RABBIT, PEGGY SUE GOT MARRIED, PRIZZI’S HONOR, and so many more great movies. Oscar-nominated star of stage and screen Kathleen Turner was at the Hi-Pointe Theater in St. Louis last night to be honored with a Lifetime Achievement Award from Cinema St. Louis. At age 56, and her red-hot movie debut BODY HEAT about to turn 30, Ms Turner said she’s finally decided that she’s old enough to receive such a distinguished career achievement  award. The event was very well-attended and Ms Turner, who hails from Springfield Missouri, was there with her mother and daughter. She is currently in St. Louis starring in the new play ‘High” by Matthew Lombardo which is at the Repertory Theatre of St. Louis’ and will run through Nov. 7. Last night’s ceremony began with a 15-minute clip reel edited by local filmmaker Roy Zurich that showed highlights from her many film appearances. She was then awarded the Lifetime Achievement Award by Cliff Froehlich, executive director of Cinema St. Louis and local dogooder Kim Tucci, which was a mounted portrait of Hollywood legend (and St. Louis native) Betty Grable. The audience was then treated to a screening of her 1989 dark comedy WAR OF THE ROSES, a film chosen at her request. This was followed by an on-stage Q&A moderated by Mr. Froehlich in which Ms Turner talked at length about her life, her film career, and her stage successes. We Are Movie Geeks was glad to be there for this special event and hopes to see Ms Turner back on the big screen soon.
