I'm Shelley Duvall: A Tribute to Faerie Tale Theatre

Her portrayals of Olive Oyl in Robert Altman's POPEYE and Wendy Torrance in Stanley Kubrick's THE SHINING might have sealed her status as an icon, but to many a kid growing up in the 80s Shelley Duvall was best known as the cheery, doe-eyed host and narrator of FAERIE TALE THEATRE. One of the earliest examples of original cable programming, this TV gem was also created and executive produced by Shelley, who rounded up her corral of celebrity friends to unfold her vision of classic children's stories brought to life.

Presented by Women and Film.
