Turner Classic Movies (TCM) will celebrate the life and career of seminal writer, director, actor and author Carl Reiner with a programming tribute on Tuesday, July 28. Reiner, who passed away on June 29 at the age of 98, won many awards including nine Emmy Awards®, a Grammy®, and the Mark Twain prize for American Humor. His prolific career spanned more than 70 years, and he gained a loyal following for his sketch comedy work alongside Sid Caesar and Mel Brooks and for directing such beloved films as “Oh, God!” (1977), “Dead Men Don’t War Plaid” (1982), “Where’s Poppa?” (1970), “The Jerk” (1979) and for creating and writing “The Dick Van Dyke Show.” In 2018, Carl Reiner and his son, filmmaker Rob Reiner, were honored with the hand and footprint ceremony at the TCL Chinese Theatre® in Hollywood during the eighth annual TCM Classic Film Festival. It marked the first time a father and son were jointly honored with a hand and footprint ceremony.
