Dreadfully Dull... and don't be fooled by the Big List of Stars in the Cast
29 July 2008 | by (Jacksonville, FL) – See all my reviews

Wow... a ton of stars in the cast list, but don't be fooled. For most of them, they are briefly shown standing around, walking about, eating, listening to dull speakers or mingling while the narrator goes "Look! There's George Kennedy, and there's Loretta Swit, and there's...". Yawn. That typifies the main problem with this short... we are being shown footage of a conference, and conferences are boring. And while the fact that the conference is about movies and is being attended by lots of Hollywood celebrities makes it a little more interesting than say... a widget conference held in Omaha, Nebraska... it's still dry stuff, especially 30 something years later.

The "highlights" include visiting the sets of "Logan's Run" (1976), listening to George Burns do a short routine including a song, and the premiere of the film "The Wind and the Lion" (1975). The "highlight" for me was getting a chuckle out of spotting a young David Hasselhoff as the male model during the "Logan's Run" costume fashion show.

This short pops up between films on TCM on every once in a while, but save your 17 minutes for something better.
