LOS ANGELES, March 6 (UPI) -- Actress Kim Novak is to be honored at the 2012 TCM Classic Film Festival in Los Angeles, organizers said Tuesday.

Novak, 79, will have her hand and footprints enshrined in concrete in front of Grauman's Chinese Theater. She also will join TCM host Robert Osborne for an in-depth conversation to be taped in front of a live audience and to air as a special on TCM next year. She will introduce a screening of Alfred Hitchcock's suspenseful classic "Vertigo," as well.

The TCM Classic Film Festival is to take place April 12-15 in Hollywood.

"From thrillers like Hitchcock's 'Vertigo' to romantic dramas such as 'Picnic,' noirish classics like 'The Man with the Golden Arm,' comedies such as 'Bell, Book and Candle' and musicals like 'Pal Joey,' Kim Novak has made us fall in love with her time and time again," Osborne said in a statement. "Our celebration of Kim Novak and her career is certain to be one of the highlights of the 2012 TCM Classic Film Festival."
