    A parking lot adjacent to the Hollywood Palace Studio/Theater became a production area for circus trapeze and animal acts, which required a greater footprint for staging. CBS' The Ed Sullivan Show in New York could not accommodate these performers. The unique staging area became a major asset for the performers appearing on this show. 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 slotted into the series show schedule. These acts and performances required considerable financial outlay for travel expenses, set-ups, residential accommodations and contract agreements. Producers Nick Vanoff and William O. Harbach spared no expense to showcase novel world-renowned performers. On a side note, the Knickerbocker Hotel was located directly behind the Hollywood Palace Theater and the hotel's rooftop sign could be seen in the show's opening credits, leading many viewers who were planning a vacation in Hollywood to attempt to book reservations at the hotel. However, the Knickerbocker had been purchased by the Methodist Church for a retirement home; the Methodists were not running a hotel and were constantly turning away telephone reservation requests.

    Ray Hines was the security guard for the Hollywood Palace theater and studio, employed by ABC. His job was to maintain the security of the facility while also supervising Studio Page staff members during day and evening schedules. His presence was almost around the clock during production taping schedules. He also would assist celebrity guests and hosts on their arrival before the show and their departure after it. During taping he remained at the theater's rear elephant doors, which were directly opposite the "star dressing room", where he maintained control over fans and activities passing through the backstage area. Hines lived at the Hollywood Tower Penthouse Suite, which had been occupied by George Raft in the 1940s and 1950s. In emergencies he was within walking distance to the theater. One such instance occurred one night when the cyclorama, composed of muslin and shark-toothed scrim soft fabric, burst into flames. Hines alerted the Hollywood fire department, which soon arrived and saved the facility. The muslin and scrim were replaced within two days by Tom Mayhew's drapery department, allowing taping on schedule. After the series was canceled, Hines remained at the stage-theater facility until ABC closed the television studio property.
