Dated but entertaining TV show from the '50s
15 September 2006 | by blanche-2See all my reviews

"Promenade" seems to be a special produced by Max Liebman for TV in 1955. It does not appear to have been a series. In the '50s and the '60s especially, variety shows were all the rage, led by that Sunday night staple, Ed Sullivan, as well as Perry Como and many others. It seems like every singer and comedian had a variety show back then. They were like the reality shows are today - everywhere.

"Promenade" is mostly made up of music, but there were also skits, one of which was especially funny, featuring the incomparable Judy Holliday. It concerns a couple who is being held by an escaped convict while he hides in their house, and a clueless neighbor (Holliday) who blunders in and still doesn't comprehend the situation. "It's just me, the neighbors, and that escaped dentist," she tells her husband on the phone. There are also big musical numbers featuring Kay Starr, Holliday, and Janet Blair. Barbara Baxley was present for the acting skits. Other guests were Herb Shriner and George S. Irving.

"Promenade" was hosted by Tyrone Power, who looked very handsome. At the end of the show, he joined Holliday, Starr, Blair, and the backup singers and dancers for "Chattanooga Choo-Choo." It was fun to see him, and sad to realize that both he and Judy Holliday died at the age of 44, Power only three years later.

A nice example of a '50s TV variety show.
