The interview will focus on the lives and careers of Minnelli's parents, Judy Garland and Vincente Minnelli. In conjunction with the premiere, TCM will pack two nights (Dec. 11-12) with films starring Garland (directed by Vincente Minnelli) and/or Liza Minnelli. "Liza Minnelli has a perspective about Hollywood unlike anyone else," stated Osborne. “She is an Academy Award-winning actress with parents who both were also Oscar winners... Her playground was soundstages, where she watched her parents and other film icons work, so she has insights into their world, which became her world. Her story is at once fascinating, dramatic and touching and has never been extensively told before. We're very excited to be able to devote two nights to celebrating the lives and work of this extraordinary family."
Among the films slated to air Dec. 11-12 are "Cabaret" (1972), "An American in Paris" (1951), "Gigi" (1958), "The Pirate" (1949), "Meet Me in St. Louis" (1944), "The Clock" (1945), "Madame Bovary" (1949), "The Bad the Beautiful" (1952), "Home from the Hill" (1960) and "A Matter of Time" (1976), as well as the 1987 documentary "Minnelli on Minnelli."
