This year's Turner Classic Movies Film Festival kicked off with a restoration of 1972's "Cabaret" for it's 40th anniversary and Liza Minnelli was the premiere's main attraction.
Minnelli is thrilled "Cabaret" is back in the spotlight. The Bob Fosse film is one of the defining moments in her career.
"I'm a director's daughter, so I listened to Fosse really carefully. I didn't know how to flirt or do all that stuff. I really didn't," Minnelli said. "We went to you know, Germany and we made a film that nobody stopped us doing anything on. So it became a really decadent experience."
Fans and stars alike enjoyed a slate of classic films during this year's celebration of cinema.
