Trivia:
All the "acts" performing on the Hollywood Palace television show were video-recorded and performed on the HP stage, or in the adjacent parking lot, with only one exception. Converting the ABC TV stage-studio into a color facility during the summer of 1966 shut the stage down. Vanoff booked Dame Margot Fonteyn and Rudolf Nureyev for the third season, third show hosted by Fred Astaire. Only available during the month of June, 1966, the Proscenium was duplicated by ABC Scenic Services, and sets built for their performance of the Black Swan pas de deux, from the Swan Lake ballet. These scenic elements, including the stage's apron brass footlights, were shipped and set up at the CBS Television City Studios, Beverly Blvd at Fairfax in Hollywood. Rehearsing the dance on the CBS stage, Nureyev and Fonteyn found the standard shiny gray vinyl floor "impossible to perform upon". Hub Braden covering the taping, had the CBS construction/scenic shop replace the vinyl with a 4'x8' Masonite sheets, which were turned over, reversing the shiny finish to the material's backside pebble texture. Accepting this substituted dance floor, Fonteyn and Nureyev performed their segment with Astaire introducing them from his Hollywood Palace proscenium host area. The segment was placed in ABC's Bank Vault until the show was taped and edited, airing October 2, 1966.See more »

Playing the Palace, 3 January 2006
Author: bkoganbing from Buffalo, New York

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.
