          Turner Classic Movies (TCM) will celebrate the life and career of iconic director and choreographer Stanley Donen with a five-film tribute on Monday, March 18. Donen, who passed away on Feb. 21 at the age of 94, collaborated with actor and director Gene Kelly as a choreographer before making his directorial debut alongside Kelly with 1949’s On the Town. He went on to be responsible for some of Hollywood’s most glittering movie musicals and directed such talents as Frank Sinatra, Elizabeth Taylor, Audrey Hepburn, Gene Kelly and Fred Astaire. In 1998, he earned an honorary Academy Award® “in appreciation of a body of work marked by grace, elegance, wit and visual innovation.”
