The Duluth Superior Film Festival has confirmed that actress and mental health advocate Anna "Patty" Duke and one of her sons, actor Mackenzie Astin, will attend the 2014 festival.
Duke's official Facebook fan page announced that she will attend a screening of her 1972 film "You'll Like My Mother," while Astin will attend a screening of his 1994 film "Iron Will." Both films were shot in Duluth.
The 2014 Duluth Superior Film Festival will be held May 28 to June 1. Dates, times, and venues for the screenings of Duke's and Astin's films have not yet been announced.
Duke may be best known for her Academy Award-winning role in the 1962 film "The Miracle Worker" and her dual role as cousins Patty and Cathy Lane on "The Patty Duke Show," which aired from 1963 to 1966 on ABC.
Makenzie Astin, the son of Duke and "Addams Family" star John Astin, has appeared in numerous films and TV shows.
