The Film Society of Lincoln Center has unveiled its initial
list of presenters set for the upcoming 41st Chaplin Award Gala honoring Rob
Reiner, on April 28.
Martin Scorsese will present the big award to Reiner; leading up to that will be film and interview clips, plus appearances by Billy Crystal, Michael
Douglas, Michael McKean, and Robin Wright. Plus, classic Reiner-directed films “A
Few Good Men,” “Misery,” “The Princess Bride” and “Stand by Me” will screen on April

Hitchcock, Billy Wilder, Laurence Olivier, Federico Fellini, Elizabeth Taylor,
Bette Davis, James Stewart, Robert Altman, Scorsese, Diane Keaton, Meryl
