It's incredible in these roasts to see the greats lined up on the dais. To listen to the humour akin to thinking out loud with no regard for what's correct to joke about. It's old era ... See full summary »

Wonderful funny contribution from Red Buttons. Kinda leaves you feeling two things. Almost all of these acting/comedic legends have passed and this sort of unbridled humour is no more

Orson Welles: "Nothing stands in my way and his name is Allen Ludden"
12 September 2013 | by (Youngstown,Ohio) – See all my reviews

The 1977 roast of Betty White can be said to be routine, with the usual cast of regulars seen that year, such as Red Buttons, Jimmie Walker, Charlie Callas, La Wanda Page, Orson Welles, Milton Berle, and the always hilarious Foster Brooks. Only Georgia Engel appeared from THE MARY TYLER MOORE SHOW, while John Hillerman was currently co-starring on THE BETTY WHITE SHOW, which lasted just two seasons. The newcomers include Bonnie Franklin, from ONE DAY AT A TIME, and Peter Marshall, who mentions being a recent roastee himself. Dan Haggerty, the star of GRIZZLY ADAMS, makes fun of Betty's cooking, Rich Little mentions her famous dimples (looking good at age 55), while Abe Vigoda, TV's tired FISH, talks about being mistaken for a real cop, walking into a singles bar only to see all the young girls rush out: "that's why I went in there in the first place!" Even Phyllis Diller actually looks great (at 60), after her recent plastic surgery: "if the knot ever comes loose!" Betty's love of animals is skewered, even by her husband, Allen Ludden (who died in 1981), famous as the host of the popular game show PASSWORD, claiming he had to sit up and beg before she would marry him: "then on our honeymoon, she rolled over and played dead!"
