Max Von Sydow The Seventh SealIn April, Turner Classic Movies will once again spend four days showing numerous classic films and discussing them with our remaining stars.

Over the next two months, TCM will slowly reveal its panel and interview guest to coincide with a slate of already announced screenings that include everything from Terrence Malick's enigmatic Badlands (1973) to the Gene Kelly-Frank Sinatra musical On the Town (1949) to the moody Western Shane (1953) starring Alan Ladd.

This week TCM announced a trio of stars starting with Max Von Sydow, who will be on hand to discuss Ingmar Bergman's allegorical drama The Seventh Seal (1957) and William Friedkin's horror classic The Exorcist (1973).

Eva Marie Saint On the WaterfrontAlso announced is actress Ann Blyth, who played Joan Crawford's eldest daughter in Michael Curtiz's iconic noir Mildred Pierce (1945) and Hadji's daughter in Vincente Minnelli's fantasy musical Kismet (1955).

Finally, famed Hitchcock blonde Eva Marie Saint will be there to discuss her work on Elia Kazan's On the Waterfront (1954), which transformed star Marlon Brando into an icon and won Best Picture in 1954.

The TCM Classic Film Festival takes place from April 25-28 in the heart of Hollywood. You can check out the slate of films here.
