Life is a Banquet uses rare footage obtained through Russell's family as well as clips from her best work to shine a deserving spotlight on the renowned star and philanthropist. The film is narrated by Academy Award winning actress Kathleen Turner and features interviews of Tom Brokaw, Tina Sinatra, Haley Mills, famed designer James Galanos and a host of others. The film is expected to air on PBS in the fall of 2009. The film was produced and directed by Jonathon Gruber. Executive Producer was Aldo Panattoni.  Edited by Atticus-Culver Reese.
