Storyline

Popular, long-running Saturday night variety show of the mid-to-late 1960's, originating from the Hollywood Palace Theater (formerly the El Capitan) on Hollywood Boulevard. There was a revolving guest host, usually a singer or comedian, each week. Bing Crosby was the most frequent guest host (including, of course, the Christmas Week show), but other frequent guest hosts included Sammy Davis, Jr., Jimmy Durante, Don Adams, Fred Astaire, and Judy Garland. The Rolling Stones made their first U.S. TV appearence on the show in 1964. The waning popularity of weekly variety shows contributed to "Hollywood Palace" being cancelled in early 1970, but it's still well-remembered by its many fans. Written by Bob Sorrentino

Trivia

Nick Vanoff fired the first Hollywood Palace "Billboard Girl" after the fifth show. She was a member of the Tom Hansen Dancers, appearing on the CBS Red Skelton Hour, which became a scheduling problem for the leggy curvaceous showgirl. After missing air-show rehearsals, and showing up late in the taping day, Vanoff replaced the performer, the following week, with Raquel Welch. Patrick Curtis accompanied Raquel when she was scheduled for rehearsal and show taping day. Patrick, always sitting in the last row aisle seat adjacent to the orchestra area, became a fixture, like a "Brinks Guard" guarding his property! These "Hollywood Palace Billboard" segments, at the end of the variety hour, introduced Raquel Welch. Raquel, soon noticed by agents and movie producers, was on the series for several years before quitting the assignment. See more »

Playing the Palace
3 January 2006 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

How I loved the Hollywood Palace back in the day. It was ABC TV's best contribution to our culture back in the day. Of course the fact that the most frequent guest host was the Greatest Entertainer Ever made it a must see item.

Highlights that I remember would include such things as: Bing Crosby dueting with Sonny&Cher, Nelson Eddy making his last big or small screen appearance, Tony Martin and Rudy Vallee, not singing together, but dueting with the clarinet and saxophone, instruments that both played but put aside when their singing careers took over.

The show was a homage to the old Palace Theatre in New York City. In the days of vaudeville it was the summit of every entertainer's ambition; to play at the Palace Theatre.

It was good that people got to see a lot of these folks. I wish that TV Land would broadcast some of these shows.

Classics every one.
