Trivia

Hedda Hopper's prediction that she wouldn't be surprised if they remade Ben-Hur: A Tale of the Christ (1925)/Ben-Hur (1959) a third time came true in 2016 - 56 years later - with Ben-Hur (2016). (In between, there had also been an animated straight-to-video Ben Hur (2003) with Charlton Heston reprising his role, and a Ben Hur (2010) TV mini-series.) See more »

Miss Hopper's All Star TV Show
20 March 2011 | by williwawSee all my reviews

I remember this TV show as one barely in his teens and recall the big promotion given to legendary Marion Davies appearing on this show looking wonderful and as a real movie star should. I also recall Hedda Hopper's great friend Lucille Ball appearing on this show; (Ball and Hopper were lifelong friends and Lucille Ball either bought or inherited Hopper's Rolls Royce after the columnist died. I found this show enjoyable and frankly was so young I did not recall all the major stars and the import they had on the Industry such as Gary Cooper or filmmakers such as Walt Disney This TV show combined the great (Cooper and Ms Ball) the Popular (Stephen Boyd, a Hedda Hopper favorite) and the old ( Ms. Davies) and the young ( Venetia Stevenson who after this show quit the business) This is a show I definitely would now appreciate more in particular seeing Gloria Swanson ( who can forget the fadeout of Sunset Blvd with Hopper in the sequence)?
