Trivia:
During rehearsals, the guest host usually stood on the left camera side of the proscenium, with a high stool for the host to be seated. The prop master provided water or a soda pop beverage. When Joan Crawford hosted, she would carry her own "Pepsi Cola" which was already open, and spiked with vodka, onto the stage. The beverage relaxed Joan without any problems. During the taping of the show, the prop master provided the "spiked soda"! Joan Crawford was a very gracious lady. After each of Joan Crawford's Hollywood Palace appearances, every member of the crew and staff received a personally hand written thank you note, sent from her New York address. Kate Smith insisted that her "cola" be carried out by the prop master, unopened! Kate did not want any rumors that her can of soda was spiked! Kate Smith carried a Kodak brownie camera during her show engagement, snapping pictures throughout her rehearsal and the taping of the show. Upon completion of Kate's host assignment, each crew and staff member received a "Kodak moment" with their picture as they were performing their show assignment; included with the small photograph was Kate's personally signed thank you note. These two personalities were the only hosts during the six seasons to send a personal thank you to each member of the crew and staff of the Hollywood Palace.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.
