PlayBlog Arlene Dahl Will Be the Hostess With the Mostest for a Broadway Cause
That made-for-Technicolor redhead, Arlene Dahl —she once quit M-G-M for giving her three black-and-white movies in a row —will glamorously host a cocktail party June 21, from 5 to 8, at the NASDAQ building at West 43rd and Broadway.

The occasion, she says, is to celebrate Broadway and her longtime pet cause, the Broadway Walk of Stars — the East Coast answer to the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

"All the stars on Broadway have been invited," the Dahl announces with easy expanse. Sure to show are the Honorary Chairs: Tommy Tune, Liza Minnelli, Joan Rivers ("A Piece of Work," that one — which is the subtitle of the new documentary on her), Michael Feinstein, Turner Classic Movies host Robert Osborne and La Dahl.

According to Internet Broadway Database, Dahl has three Broadway credits to her name: Applause (she was a replacement Margo Channing), Cyrano de Bergerac (she was Roxane in 1953) and Mr. Strauss Goes to Boston (a short-lived 1945 musical).

Dahl knows where her next cocktail party is coming from: Her pal, Douglas Rae, and his truly scrumptious wife, Sally Ann Howes, turn octogenarians next month — two weeks apart — and will come from Palm Beach to New York to be feted by friends.
