Videos of the Week    

(above):  Variety Shows were at one time, one of the hottest television program formats. These TV shows included a number of different acts.  Ed Sullivan Show probably mastered the genre, but there were others including ABC's "Hollywood Palace" from the 1960s.  This edition of Hollywood Palace, complete with original commercials, is from from October 23rd of 1965.  It's hosted by Milton Berle and includes Bill Dana, Maury Willis, Abbe Lane and Sonny and Cher.

(above): This is another edition of Hollywood Palace from Christmas of 1965.  It served as Bing Crosby's traditional Christmas Show that year.  It includes Dorothy Collins, and the cast of TV's "Hogan's Heroes."  Why Bob Crane and the cast of "Hogan?"  Bing Crosby's production company produced the WWII comedy!
