This is an entertaining window back to late 1952 and the stars which were under contract to CBS at the time. Everyone who is remembered (as well as a few who aren't) from that time are present. The occasion being the grand opening of the then-new Television City, a 7 million dollar studio dedicated to the production of television shows. Among the many stars are Lucy and Desi, Eve Arden, Alan Young, Gale Gordon, Margaret Whiting, the TV cast of Amos N' Andy, Marie Wilson, Cathy Lewis, Jack Benny, Rochester, Burns and Allen, and more. There are many funny comedy sketches and a few good musical numbers. This almost plays like television's version of the early all-star musical revues from Hollywood at the dawn of sound. You'll never get a chance to see so much legendary talent from television's golden age as here. I got this as part of a "Johnny Carson & Friends" DVD set, and little did I realize that this gem was part of the package. Lucy's segment was pre-filmed for this mostly live production, owing to the fact that she was quite pregnant in November 1952, when the show aired. Stars In The Eye will be of interest to fans of classic television.
