    Many Hollywood "stars" revived and expanded their careers by appearing on the Hollywood Palace television series. Dean Martin's hosting deal negotiated with Vanoff and Harbach allowed him to "sail into the theater" from the golf course, to tape the first (video-taped) rehearsal show, followed by the air show (video-taped) with an hour crew-cast break; allowing the audience to be turned around, the director Grey Lockwood to give pick-up notes, and Jack Denton to correct lighting and/or re-jelling lamp fixtures. Dean's musical material had previously been rehearsed by the orchestra, the night before, on the music rehearsal night. The show was rehearsed with full cast minus Dean's participation, with "Woody", the Stage Manager delivering the scripted introductions for the a show's guests. Because the show was so easy for Martin to perform, Dean and his producer Greg Garrison were able to pitch a Dean Martin Variety Series to rival NBC TV Network. Rowan and Martin repeated their hosting assignment by creating the "Laugh In" NBC TV Series. Repeated again with Phyllis Diller hosting her comedy NBC TV series. Fred Astaire and his production company taped a "second Special-Fred Astaire Show" in 1967-68 (his last [previous] EMMY AWARD NBC Fred Astaire Special was presented in the 1958-1959 season). The Hollywood Palace Production Designer Jim Trittipo divided his show responsibilities to design the Astaire Special's scenic requirements. Actually, Hub Braden, the Art Director, designed the Palace scenery while Jim was at NBC studios. Jerry McPhie (Production Manager) commented that the producer, Nick Vanoff, never knew that Jim was out of sight during the month of the special's production. Trittipo would show the day of taping and supervise in the control room booth.

    The Hollywood Palace, after being canceled by ABC TV in the Spring of 1970, was never re-broadcast in a re-run/repeated series format because of the musician's union contract fees, as well as the entertainer/actor rerun fees. The program was just too expensive for any network, or for any independent marketing format because of the series rebroadcasting union contract rates.

    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.
