Anyone hear or read anything about how the Elvis Night of "1000" (ahem) Co-Stars went?
I can't seem to find anything. Any pictures? I'd like to see how some of the co-stars look today ...

I don't think it went very well according to this i read on the insiders board, mind you i'm not surprized.
Here's what was written -
Well, all of the people who warned against Suzanna Leigh and her laughable "Night of a Thousand Stars" event were right. Unfortunately, I already had tickets by the time that I got my warning.
First of all, there were hardly any stars who showed up at all. Of the two dozen or so that were originally advertised, six showed up...including Suzanna. Your $60 ticket ($150 if you bought the three day package) got you the priveledge of entering a room where the "stars" would hit you up for another $20 for an autographed 8x10.
I will say that the stars who were there (Jack Grinnage from King Creole, Jan Shepard from King Creole and Paradise Hawaiian Style, Jennifer Holden from Jailhouse Rock, from Edward Faulkner from Tickle Me) were all very nice...with the exception of the rude Michael Dante from Kid Galahad.
You would think that Suzanna would at this point bend over backward to make the people who were there happy. Instead she ran around like an oblivious diva, refusing photos and doing nothing to ensure that people got what they paid for. Fortunately, very few people were there...less Elvis fans to be abused.
This was the night of the big rip off, nothing else. I will make a point of warning every Elvis fan that I come in contact with to never have anything to do with Suzanna or any of her events. Amen to Elvis Radio for banning her.

What happened to people like L.Q.Jones (he turned 80 on August 18th, btw) and Donna Butterworth?
Oh, well ...
