Trivia

The Hollywood and Vine Street Theater, formerly the El Capitan Theatre, had been used for radio studio audience broadcasting. ABC-TV bought the property, renovated the old theater's interiors by filling in the orchestra pit (extending the stage footlights/apron forward by 20 feet), added a six-foot-wide concrete stage center camera aisle, connects the stage to a rear wall camera five-foot-deep aisle. Adjacent to the left of the ramp, an audience seating area (camera left) was installed, with an access aisle dividing the block of seats and a side wall aisle, which seated approximately 230 guests. On the right side of the camera aisle, a smaller seating section was installed with six seats to each row of ten rows (60 seats). On the theater's right side, the orchestra area replaced the audience area and was maintained at stage level. On the back stage, behind the new proscenium, the fly floor was renovated, with the addition of lighting pipes (fly floor on stage right/camera left). On stage left a new star dressing room was built. The first floor was a decorated lounge (with a front and mirrored back bar, stools, a spinet piano, sofa, armchairs and side/coffee tables); with a spiral staircase to the second upstairs floor make-up room, a small day-bed/sofa lounge and make-up chairs; an adjacent toilet equipped with a wall telephone hanging to the left of the commode (for Jerry Lewis to conduct his conference calls, even while on his throne). The theater lobby was renovated. An engineering electronic, sound and tape room was located at the front area of the theater lobby; with the TV control room (sandwiched) facing the stage, with soundproof glass windows separating the technical operations area from the audience-stage area. The video electrical cable camera connections were installed for four stage cameras, one center crane camera and one balcony fixed camera. Two boom dolly mikes were on either side of the proscenium stage. Upstairs offices at the front of the two story theater were redesigned/installed for Lewis Productions personnel. Production Designer Bill Morris designed a show home-base host desk area, with guest chairs, on an electric scissor lift platform. During the interview segments, Lewis' interview host area would be raised above the stage floor approximately 15 feet, which enabled the balcony audience to view the guest stars and Lewis. The cost to renovate the facility was $400,000. See more »

I worked on the JL Live show--my first job in TV. ABC never gave it a chance. It was canceled after the first week. Everyone was working hard to battle the technical problems of a new studio that the entertainment side was secondary to technical. There were problems that were never anticipated. I then transitioned to the Hollywood Palace which also suffered from some of the same technical issues for the remainder of the year, but they never were seen because the Palace was taped. I will tell you there were some pretty long nights waiting to clear technical. I went on to work with Jerry on two movies and loved every minute of it. The clips that I have found are the first time I've seen them in 50 years. While I cringe at portions I am still amazed at what we were able to do in 1963. Jerry, I hope you enjoyed spending ABC's $40 million and thank you for taking care of me so well over the years. It was a great idea that fell a little short.
