STARS IN THE SOUTH: Some impressive acting talent descended on Savannah, Ga., over the weekend when Savannah College of Art and Design kicked off its annual Film Festival with a tribute to Michael Douglas, and three Redgrave siblings — Vanessa, Lynn and Corin. The thespians received Lifetime Achievement Awards Saturday night. Douglas, with wife Catherine Zeta-Jones and their two children, took horse-and-carriage rides around the historic district, "amazed that every building I see here is one that's been restored by SCAD," he said, accepting the award.
The Redgraves ate lunch Saturday at The Lady & Sons, Paula Deen's famous restaurant, although they avoided the block-long lines that queue up at 7 a.m. daily for reservations. "This [event] is so important, not just for Savannah, but as a national and international event," said Corin Redgrave. "It's the greatest excitement, urge and stimulus to go on and do more."
Milos Forman, who directed "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest," (produced by Douglas in 1975), was in the audience Saturday, and will be honored before the festival ends Saturday.
