Turner Classic Movies to Honor Six-Time Oscar Nominee Deborah Kerr

Turner Classic Movies (TCM) will pay special tribute to six-time Oscar nominee Deborah Kerr, who passed away at the age of 86. On Sunday, Oct. 21, TCM will present a special double feature of two of Kerr's most memorable nominated roles. At 8 p.m., she stars as a lonely military wife who seeks happiness through an illicit affair in From Here to Eternity (1953), co-starring Burt Lancaster, Frank Sinatra and Donna Reed. And at 10:15 p.m., she plays a spinster who is completely dominated by her mother while staying at an English seaside resort in Separate Tables (1958), with Lancaster and Oscar winners David Niven and Wendy Hiller.

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