    Peggy Lee appeared on the series once, with host Bing Crosby (5-#17-[1-13-68]) sitting on a center stage bench, singing a medley with Bing, including "the Doodle Song". Performing solo, Peggy sang "Only as a Woman" and "Seems Like Old Times", standing upon a raised ten foot diameter platform, surrounded by mirrored pedestals, ranging in heights from 18", 24", 36", and 42" high. Peggy Lee's weight gain had posed a problem, so Vanoff insisted her center stage solo be camouflaged for camera shots. Standing in the center of these mirrored pedestals, the camera focus was on Peggy Lee's upper torso, shoulders and head shots, with her waist and floor length gown masked by mirrored reflections.

    Hosting four Hollywood Palace shows in the third (1965-1966) season, Fred Astaire, was featured in his unique dance style in each show. Barrie Chase was his partner in his third and fourth Hollywood Palace appearances. During the taping of Fred's production dance number, the director, Grey Lockwood, would stop the dance number, citing a technical problem, allowing Fred to catch his breath, while pausing for a rest stop. Grey Lockwood would resume the dance number after apologizing to Mr. Astaire for the "technical problem"! For four of the Astaire-host-shows, Fred Astaire's dance number was rehearsed on camera - allowing the pacing dictating how many "technical problems" should occur. Editing the dance number together, the finished dance seemed uninterrupted! Because of these Hollywood Palace appearances, Astaire produced his own Emmy NBC TV dance special in 1967-68, utilizing Jim Trittipo as his production designer.

    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.
