Movie icon Mitzi Gaynor will appear when the film "South Pacific" (1958) screens March 19 at the Music Box as part of Turner Classic Movies annual "Road to Hollywood" series.
Film scholar Leonard Maltin will host the free-admission event, which will begin at 7:30 p.m. Tickets will be available starting March 5 at tcm.com/roadtohollywood.
A Chicago native, Gaynor played the role of naval ensign Nellie Forbush in this screen version of Rodgers & Hammerstein's hit Broadway musical. In the film, she sings "I'm Gonna Wash That Man Right Outta My Hair" (above), "A Wonderful Guy" and "Honey Bun," among others.
The series serves as a run-up to TCM's annual film festival, set this year for April 25-28 in Hollywood.
