AN ALL-STAR GALA (SORT OF)
The Thalians is a worthy organization around since the mid-Fifties where young Hollywood stars at the the time got together to help children with mental problems. The organization is still going strong today with Debbie Reynolds as President (a post she has held since 1958) and Ruta Lee as Chairman of the Board. Every year they honor an actor at this year’s Thalians Gala Ball the recepient was Clint Eastwood.
Sadly, the All-Star Gala Ball was more like a Hollywood Collector’s Show reunion. Great for people like me but not one A-List star to be found as one would expect to see at a salute to Eastwood. Guests included BarBara Luna (looking smashing in a glittery evening gown), Mamie Van Doren, Carol Lynley (looking really hagard and what’s with the leopard pants and orange raincoat? sigh), Stella Stevens, Deanna Lund, Lou Ferrigno, Anne Jeffreys, Rich Little, Barbie Benton, Linda Blair, Patty McCormack, etc.
