Trivia:
Specialty tiger, lion, panther acts were performed on The Hollywood Palace stage, video taped and "banked" in the library of acts/performances for insertion into the regular series hosted show. These live animal acts required a major stage set up because of the iron bar performance ring provided by the trainer's (circus performance presentation) act. The animals were released from their traveling cages at the exterior stage elephant door-ramp alley. The animals were directed through an iron bar tunnel leading to the stage performance ring. Usually, their performance was without an audience present. Occasionally a small audience was allowed to watch the taping. Striking and removing the stage performance jail-bar cage, tunnel, and equipment required additional man-hour labor. Special window (plastic) jail sections, (built by ABC Special Effects), were inserted between the jail-bar ring for camera port holes. Only once, was a lion, tiger and black panther act performed without this circus jail ring set up on stage. Four iron bar jail bar units were built to surround the video camera and the camera operators. The audience bodies were studio dummies, dressed by the costumer, and placed in the seats. The stage crew and participating show personnel were located in the theater's balcony to observe the performance. On one of the animal acts load in, through the iron bar tunnel, Ed Holland, the head stage carpenter, was squeezing by the tunnel next to the stage proscenium bulkhead frame, while the lions were being ushered into the stage ring. An old lion being pushed through the tunnel got his revenge, spraying Ed from head to toe! Ed's wife complained the lion perfume remained on him for weeks thereafter!See more »

Great long-running variety show, 22 October 2005
Author: jonesy74-1 from United States

Whatever happened to the variety show? Where today can you see acts like Senior Wences ('sawrrright? 'SAWRRRIGHT!); the guy who spun plates on fiber-glass poles to the tune of Khachaturian's "Neighbor's Dance"; the harmonica group who dressed in liederhosen and the midget went around biting everyone in the knee when he got kneed out by the other performers; the guy who tried to get his dog to jump through the hoop and the dog, instead, would slowly droop to the floor anemically; Carl Ballantine, the magician who had everything go wrong in his magic act; all those comedians and impressionists; the juggling acts; the acrobat acts; and a plethora of other folks who did acts in nightclubs and show rooms all over America? This was the place. We didn't get Ed Sullivan in our town during my early years, but we DID get the Hollywood Palace - on Saturday nights at 9 p.m. - just before "The Outer Limits" aired at 10 p.m.

The theme song was "Put On a Happy Face," played brightly by an off-stage orchestra (originally led by Les Brown). It was a pre-recorded show with a live audience, much like Ed Sullivan, except it had several guest hosts, largely consisting of Bing Crosby and Don Adams.

I remember it as the introduction of Raquel Welch to America. Raquel would come out each week and place a placard on an easel introducing the next act. If I'm not mistaken, she began on the show coming out in something akin to a Bunny suit (as in Playboy Bunny outfit minus the ears) with dark stockings? Anyway, I miss these types of shows. Steve Harvey is the closest thing to this type of show and it's a shame. It's just not "all that" in comparison to "The Hollywood Palace."
