NEW YORK - December 30, 2005 - Bravo will pay tribute to the nearly five-decade career of director Ron Howard in the special, "Moving Image Salutes Ron Howard" on Saturday, January 7 at 9:00 PM ET/PT. The Salute will include presentations from Howard's star-studded colleagues and friends as well as exclusive film clips.

Special guests and presenters include Jim Carrey, Edie Falco, Paul Giamatti, Howard's long-time producing partner Brian Grazer, surprise guest Tom Hanks, Goldie Hawn, Bryce Dallas Howard, Michael Keaton, Kurt Russell, Jeffrey Tambor and Renee Zellweger.

The Salute will include a first look at Howard's adaptation of the best-selling novel "The Da Vinci Code," due in theaters in May. The breadth and depth of Howard's career are represented through film and television clips including: "American Graffiti," "The Andy Griffith Show," "Apollo 13," "Backdraft," "A Beautiful Mind," "The Big Valley," "Cinderella Man," "Cocoon," "Edtv," "Far and Away," "Grand Theft Auto," "Gung Ho," "Happy Days," "How the Grinch Stole Christmas," "M*A*S*H," "The Missing," "The Music Man," "Night Shift," "The Paper," "Parenthood," "Ransom," "Route 66," "Saturday Night Live," "Splash," and "Willow."

As the Museum of the Moving Image's 21st Salute honoree, Ron Howard joins an exceptional group: Sidney Lumet, Elia Kazan, James Stewart, Sidney Poitier, Mike Nichols, Robert DeNiro, Barbara Walters, Al Pacino, Steven Spielberg, Robin Williams, Martin Scorsese, Goldie Hawn, Dustin Hoffman, Tom Hanks, Steve Martin, Julia Roberts, Mel Gibson, Billy Crystal, Richard Gere and John Travolta.

PRESENTER QUOTES:

Jim Carrey: "Ron Howard is the kind of guy that you want to come through for. He's compassionate, he's courageous, he's a leader. A lot of people don't think he's tough, but he's done a lot of movies now with Russell Crowe and he does not have a mark on him. Of course, I haven't seen him without his shirt on lately."

Mel Gibson: "In my opinion no one deserves the Moving Image Award more than you for the contribution you have made to the motion picture industry. I know I have only worked with you once, and sometimes I wonder why that is. Only once. I mean, I haven't worked in four years and I am available."

Tom Hanks: "As a producer, Ron has entered into the pantheon of the great producers of all time with his partner Brian Grazer. All actors enjoy working with Ron because he is truly is a collaborator in a great process. I, like every actor who has worked with Ron, hopes to have the chance to do it again. Let us all join in a robust and well-deserved salute to man who has made film after film after film and who has filled us truly with happiness and, more importantly, hope."

Bryce Dallas Howard: "Audiences have a relationship with my Dad. He means something to them. With the stories he tells over and over again he offers them hope and a happy ending and that is what he offers to everyone around him especially his family. Hope and a happy ending. Thank you Dad for the best seat on the roller coaster. It has been a beautiful ride."

Michael Keaton: "My big break came in 1981 when I was cast in Ron Howard's second feature film 'Night Shift.' It's a story about pimps, really. The type of family film Ron would come to be known for."

Jeffrey Tambor: "Actors love Ron Howard because he loves actors. Ron uses what is called the Socratic method in acting. Like Socrates, he asks questions to reveal the truth. And I experienced this technique the first day of filming. When Ron came up to me after yelling 'cut,' he asked me, 'What are you doing? Oh my goodness, what are you doing?'"

Renee Zellweger: "The experience of working with Ron on 'Cinderella Man' was as eye opening as the story itself. James J. Braddock's real life rise to become the real life heavyweight champion is a hyperbole beyond Hollywood, but ultimately the 'Cinderella Man' story is a testimony to the title he never relinquished. Husband, father, provider. People who love film deserve to see this movie because it is full of Ron's humanity."

Bravo, in association with the Museum of the Moving Image, filmed the "Moving Image Salutes Ron Howard" at the Museum's 21st annual Salute on Sunday, December 4, 2005 at the Waldorf-Astoria in New York City.

Bravo's "Why We Love Movies" film strand will kick-off on Friday, January 6 with "Backdraft" at 8:00 PM ET/PT followed by "Apollo 13" at 11:00 PM ET/PT.
