Night Of The 100 Living Stars II Comments (0)

In my memory, Night of 100 Stars I (1985) was amazing, Night of 100 Stars II (filmed Sunday, February 17, 1985, aired March 10, 1985) was even more entertaining than the first one, and Night of 100 Stars III (1990) was a dud...but who knows?

Time for a screening!

Let's find out who from Night of 100 Stars II (1985) is still among us...

Richard-attenborough-apPeace in: Two Oscars for Gandhi

Sir Richard Attenborough, a cinematic legend who acted as well as directed, and whose career began in 1942, has died after being in fragile health for the past six years. He was 90.

AttenboroughAttenborough was best known for his Oscar-winning direction of Gandhi (1982). He directed for nearly 40 years—from 1969 to 2007—including noteworthy films as the horror flick Magic (1978), the South Africa-based drama Cry Freedom (1987) and biopic Chaplin (1992) starring an Oscar-nominated Robert Downey Jr. as the film legend. His best-known acting roles, of course, were in Jurassic Park (1993) and The Lost World: Jurassic Park (1997).

The pages are especially worth a look if you're a comic strip/sci fi fan...mouse over them to see what number they are.

Chain-Letter-6I've held onto the hastily Xeroxed (and re-Xeroxed...and re-Xeroxed) pages of this 60-page chain letter for over 20 years, at first because it's filled with interesting names and drawings (again, not originals...dammit!) by famous artists, and then later because the very concept of a physical chain letter has become so antiquated.

The letters include everyone from Bette Midler to Goldie Hawn, from the late wife of Ricardo Montalban to JFK's press secretary, from publisher Joni Evans to the Hollywood Reporter's George Christy. To me, it's fascinating.

Check out the pages in the gallery above, and some notes on the pages below...

Don-PardoFebruary 22, 1918—August 18, 2014

Don Pardo, the instantly recognizable, mellifluous voice of Saturday Night Live, has died at the age of 96. “Jaws” is not a suspect.

Pardo had been with NBC since 1944—a cool 70 years on the job. He celebrated his ninetieth on the set of SNL and had apparently worked for SNL in-studio nearly continuously up until his death.
