Trivia:
An adjacent parking lot to the Hollywood Palace Studio/Theater became a production area for circus trapeze and animal acts, which required a greater footprint for staging. The CBS TV New York Ed Sullivan Show could not accommodate these performers. The unique staging area became a major asset for the performers appearing on the Hollywood Palace. All of these acts were performed at night, with an audience sitting in bleachers. Engineering required extra facilities requirements, which included cameras, sound, lighting, costumes, scenery, and technical staffs. These acts and performances were "banked" on tape (held in the tape vault) and scheduled into the series show schedule. Scheduling these acts and performances required major expense to pay for travel expenses, set-ups, residential accommodation, and contract agreements. The producers, Nick Vanoff and Bill Harbach, spared no expense to showcase novel world renowned performers. With the exposure of the Knickerbocker Hotel sign, atop the hotel located directly behind the Hollywood Palace Theater, viewers planning a vacation would try to book hotel reservations! The Knickerbocker Hotel had been purchased by the Methodist Church for a retirement home. The Methodist's were not running a hotel turning away many telephone reservation requests.See more »

Outperforming Expectations, 19 July 2014
Author: John T. Ryan (redryan64@hotmail.com) from United States

AS WE RECALL, this series came to ABC TV Network's Saturday evening lineup as a "temporary replacement" for THE JERRY LEWIS; which was halted abruptly following poor ratings.* In spite of one misgivings from "the Suits" in ABC's boardroom, this Variety anthology was put on the airwaves. "Who wants a variety comedy-musical show on Saturdays?"; seemed to be the prevailing attitude.

PERFORMING OUTSTANDINGLY WELL, the show stayed for seven whole seasons; controlling the ratings and presenting just about everyone who was anyone in mid 60s showbiz.

IN MUCH THE same vein as ED SULLIVAN'S TOAST OF THE TOWN, the Palace became the gathering place of musical groups, singers, acrobats, jugglers, dancers, animal acts and whatever have you. We can't recall any celebs being seated in the audience and being "surprised" to be shown or interviewed, as was Ed Sullivan's modus operandi; but they probably did anyway.

THOSE WHO CAN recall those halcyon days of bygone network presentation fondly speak of THE Hollywood PALACE and how each and every week brought us a different treat, hosted by special guest stars. This included everyone; everyone, that is, except Jerry Lewis.
