NIGHT OF 100 STARS - 1982

Night of 100 Stars is the title of a three hour-long television special on behalf of the Actor's Fund. Despite the title, the variety show featured appearances by 200 celebrities, many simply in walk-on appearances or in a kickline with chorus girls. Since many of the appearances were fleeting, an on-screen title identified each star and numbered them, in order of appearance. The first special aired in 1982, and follow-up specials debuted in 1985 and 1990. Scrolling text throughout the program kept track of how many "stars" had appeared to date.

So many stars, legends and celebrities all in a show!!!  And for many it would be there last TV appearance.  Among those great stars were...june allyson, ann miller, ethel merman, james stewart, bette davis, jane russell, liza minelli, myrna loy, carol channing, tony bennett, james cagney, frances dee, joel mccrae, alice faye, helen hayes, grace
