The Paley Center for Media in Beverly Hills will celebrate the 45th anniversary of Rodgers & Hammerstein's 1965 television production of Cinderella, which starred Lesley Ann Warren, with a special screening on June 15. The event is part of the center's inaugural PaleyFest Rewind Classic TV Festival, to run June 15- 21.

In addition to the screening of the television classic, which which also starred Ginger Rogers, Walter Pidgeon, Celeste Holm, Pat Carroll and Stuart Damon, Warren will participate in an onstage discussion about the piece.

During the festival, the Paley Center will also revisit the 60's musical series That's Life, with a June 18 screening of an episode that featured Robert Morse and E.J. Peaker that has been unseen for nearly four decades. This screening will be followed by a special Q&A with Morse and Peaker. Critically acclaimed during its original 1968-1969 broadcast run, That's Life was nominated for an Emmy Award as Outstanding Variety or Musical Series and followed the lives of a newly married couple, played by Morse and Peaker, through comedy sketches, monologues, songs, and dances.

The festival will also, as previously announced, feature the world premiere Rona Barrett's new one-woman show, Rona Barrett: Nothing But the Truth on June 17.

Additional PaleyFest Rewind events include a cast reunion of the groundbreaking series Room 222 featuring series stars including Denise Nicholas, Karen Valentine, David Jolliffe and Judy Strangis, a salute to the 50th anniversary of My Three Sons with members of the cast including Barry Livingston, Stanley Livingston & Tina Cole in person, a Leave it to Beaver reunion with Jerry Mathers, Tony Dow, Ken Osmond and Frank Bank, plus archive screenings of rare series including Love on a Rooftop with Peter Deuel and Judy Carne and The Mothers-In-Law starring Eve Arden and Kaye Ballard.
