Stars of the Silver Screen is the seventeenth (fifteenth on Fox Kids) episode from the animated series, The Magician. It was aired on June 18, 1999 on Fox Kids and also originally in 1997.
Rumors of plaguing a new movie being in Electro City, actors Moody Grib and Ava Cheron from Electrollywood go to work when someone sabotages their helicopter and goes into a body of water, but Ace came just in time to rescue her. Cosmo goes after the sabotager's accomplice. Later after Gribs quits, Ava decides to let Ace take over the part. Ace agrees to do it only if Cosmo can be in the action too.
Ava and director Oliver Rock explain the plot of the movie, "The life of political journalist Jackie Monroe, a woman who mysteriously disappeared a few years earlier in an auto accident". While filming, Ace and Ava had two problems with the two same sabotagers. However, Ace and Zina caught the sabotagers and it turns out they work for Black Jack. Then, Ace gets more suspicious about Ava wondering why Black Jack wants to stop the movie and Ava Cheron really is.
But before he gets the answers though, a hired sumo wrestler that worked for Black Jack causes trouble at the film party in the Planet Electric restaurant. Ace, Cosmo, and Zina stop him and his two ninjas before everyone had the chance get out of the restaurant. Ava explains how close Jackie was in exposing Black Jack's dealings. But for a very important scene, Ava and Cosmo are joined by an odd group of extras who closely resemble Spade, Diamond, and three of Sonny Boy's henchmen. As it turns out, the five extras are really the bad guys while Ace finds the real extras.
