Kim Novak received one of Hollywood's highest honors on Saturday (April 14), cementing her hand and footprints outside of Grauman's Chinese Theatre. The actress, who starred in Alfred Hitchcock's 1958 classic "Vertigo," as well as "Picnic" and "Pal Joey," famously left the world of film at the height of her fame in the early 1960s to live in the California wilderness. Taking the stage to applause from fans lining Hollywood Boulevard, Novak reflected on her brief but highly successful career SOUNDBITE: Kim Novak, saying (English): "This is not a typical thing for me to be standing here in Hollywood, and I must say, when I left, it was with different feelings, and I come back here with great appreciation of Hollywood, it's been good to me, and I must say I have good feelings, warm feelings about it, because I was privileged to be in a lot of wonderful movies, 'Vertigo,' especially was one of my favorites." Novak, who turned 79 in February, has worked sporadically in film and television since the 1960s, but has devoted most of her post-Hollywood life to painting, having studied art in her early life. The ceremony honoring Novak is part of a celebration of classic films at the Turner Classic Movies festival. Lindsay Claiborn, Reuters.
