Trivia

Ford Star Jubilee was a "live", ninety minute, color spectacular that aired once a month on Saturday nights at 9:00 p.m., on CBS for, basically, one season. Sponsored by the Ford Motor Company the shows featured top of the line talent in front of, and behind, the camera. The shows were done "live" from CBS' New York studio #72 located at Broadway and 81st street, or at the CBS Television City Color Studios stage 43 in Hollywood, CA. The "Ford Star Jubilee" program-series was nominated for a 1956 EMMY as Best Variety Series. Noël Coward and Mary Martin were nominated in the performer EMMY category for "Together with Music". In spite of the talent and cost involved the specials did not receive high enough ratings to satisfy Ford and CBS-especially CBS who had to preempt Gunsmoke every time it aired. The series did not have reruns during the 1956 summer since the format was actually live and unrecorded (on video-tape) except as a kine-scope B&W film archive copy; the Ford Star Jubilee monthly specials shut down until resuming two show specials in the fall of 1956; CBS pulled the plug. The last of the "Ford Star Jubilee" series show was the first TV broadcast airing of the classic 1939 MGM musical film 'The Wizard of Oz' with Bert Lahr (age 61, 1895-1967), an original cast member, Judy Garland's daughter Liza Minnelli (age 10, born 12 March 1946) as the program hosts with a child Oz book collector Justin Schiller. This marked the only time on television that an actor who played a leading role in the original film, as well as one of the off spring of an actor who starred in it, hosted this type of television series presentation. The "Ford Star Jubilee" television SPECIAL series format was canceled by Bill Paley, the Ford Motor Company and CBS. This type of special became the 1957 anthology series CBS' Playhouse 90.
