A wonderful October 17, 1967 broadcast of the top-rated TV variety show "Hollywood Palace", starring the popular music star Petula Clark, who sings her hit songs and does an excellent ensemble performance of a medley of Beatles songs generally and Sgt. Pepper songs particularly, with additional performances by celebrated actress Lynn Redgrave; singer, actor, and Olympic skier Noel Harrison (son of Rex Harrison); actor, singer-songwriter, music composer, and author George Sanders; comedy duo Nick Ullett and Tony Hendra (that's Tony Hendra of National Lampoon and Spinal Tap fame); and comedy musical ensemble The Nitwits. Mixed in-between are great one-of-a-kind classic commercials of the day, including: Ocean Spray Cranberry Juice Cocktail; Henry Mancini for The Thomas Organ with Color-Glow; Purina Dog Chow; Mr. Magoo for General Electric Soft White Light Bulbs (complete with flying saucer and aliens!); The 7 Minute Pall Mall Gold 100s Cigarettes; and a travel arrangements acknowledgement for Pan American Airlines (Black/White, 1 Hour).
The Hollywood Palace was an hour-long American television variety show that was broadcast weekly Saturday nights (except September 1967 to January 1968, when it was seen Monday nights) on ABC from January 4, 1964, to February 7, 1970. Titled The Saturday Night Hollywood Palace during its first few weeks, it began as a midseason replacement for The Jerry Lewis Show, another variety show, which had lasted only three months. It was staged in Hollywood at the former Hollywood Playhouse (where Lewis' series had originated, temporarily renamed "The Jerry Lewis Theater" from September through December 1963) on Vine Street, which was renamed the Hollywood Palace during the show's duration and subsequently renamed Avalon Hollywood. A little-known starlet named Raquel Welch was cast during the first season as the "Billboard Girl", who placed the names of the acts on a placard (similar to that of a vaudeville house). The show's musical theme was a fast-paced instrumental rendition of "Put On a Happy Face" from the 1960 Broadway musical Bye Bye Birdie.
Petula Clark, English singer, songwriter and actress, was born November 15, 1932 in Ewell, Surrey, England. Clark's professional career began as an entertainer on BBC Radio during World War II. During the 1950s she started recording in French and having international success in both French and English. During the 1960s she became known globally for her popular upbeat hits, including "Downtown", "I Know a Place", "My Love", "A Sign of the Times", "I Couldn't Live Without Your Love", "Colour My World", "This Is My Song" and "Don't Sleep in the Subway", and she was dubbed "the First Lady of the British Invasion". She has sold more than 68 million records.
