Trivia (1)

Larri Thomas was the original "Bill-board Girl" on the ABC Television Saturday night variety "The Hollywood Palace". During the Hollywood production-television 1963-1964 season, Larri Thomas was one of choreographer Tom Hansen's dancers on the CBS Television series, "Red Skelton Hour". Hired by Nick Vanoff for his ABC "Hollywood Palace" variety show, Larri was featured at the conclusion of each show, joining the host with a billboard sheet listing the next week's host and variety guest line-up. Frequently late for rehearsals, and performance days, because of the drive from CBS-TV-Fairfax to Hollywood, conflicting show rehearsal-taping schedules, Vanoff replaced Larri with Raquel Welch after the sixth taping.
