AFI Life Achievement Award Retrospective: Shirley MacLaine

From April 22 - June 11, 2012, the AFI Silver Theatre and Cultural Center in Silver Spring, MD will host a retrospective on the films of this year’s Life Achievement Award recipient, Shirley MacLaine.

"Shirley MacLaine is a powerhouse of personality that has illuminated screens large and small across six decades. From ingénue to screen legend, Shirley has entertained a global audience through song, dance, laughter and tears, and her career as writer, director and producer is even further evidence of her passion for the art form and her seemingly boundless talents. There is only one Shirley MacLaine, and it is AFI’s honor to present her with its 40th Life Achievement Award." – Sir Howard Stringer, Chair of AFI’s Board of Trustees

Shirley MacLaine’s illustrious career comprises more than 50 feature films highlighted by an Academy Award win and six nominations, as well as six Emmy Award nominations recognizing her work in television. She made her screen debut in Alfred Hitchcock’s THE TROUBLE WITH HARRY, and went on to work with a number of celebrated filmmakers, including Billy Wilder, William Wyler, Vincente Minnelli, Robert Wise, Don Siegel, Bob Fosse and Hal Ashby. She will next be seen on screen in Richard Linklater’s BERNIE and will join the cast of TV’s international sensation DOWNTON ABBEY for its third season.

AFI’s 40th Life Achievement Award will be presented to MacLaine at a gala tribute on June 7, 2012, in Los Angeles, and broadcast later that month on TV Land.
