In the early 1980s there were 2 nights on TV called the Nights of 100 Stars which i believe was a fundraiser for the Screen Actors Guild. On one of the shows they used only 4 actresses (no men) to represent the Silent Era Lillian Gish, Leatrice Joy, Billie Dove and Laura Laplante. Why werent more shown and why did they fly Billie and Laura in from California ( It was held at Radio City Music Hall) when Blanche Sweet Aillen Pringle and a slew of others lived in the New York Area. I don't believe in the 2nd show they had any silent performers at all. Anybody know about this?
