50’s CLASSIC TV Vol. 3 - KEN MURRAY - DANNY THOMAS


THE KEN MURRAY BUDWEISER SHOW
Ken Murray starred in the very first commercial TV broadcast in 1930. He was also well-known as the guy with the Hollywood Home Movies, a popular film feature that displayed Tinsel Town's biggest stars in their natural habitat. In 1950, CBS gave Ken Murray a primetime Saturday night variety . The Ken Murray Budweiser Show featured as regulars  Darla Hood (from the Our Gang comedies all grown up), the Glamourlovelies (more eye candy) and Joe Besser (The Three Stooges).   In this broadcast from October 14, 1950 Ken is also joined by singer Mel Torme and movie’s Van Heflin. 

ALL STAR REVUE starring Danny Thomas
From May 10, 1952 join Danny with his special guests Eleanor Powell, June Havoc, Flatt and Scruggs and special cameo by Eddie Cantor for one hour of fun. Following success as a nightclub entertainer, Danny Thomas was considered a natural for television. While his Four Star/All Star Revue stint was entertaining, it wasn't until his Make Room for Daddy sitcom that some years later that Thomas became a bonafide TV star. At the time of its premiere, Revue cost $50,000 an episode to produce, making it one of the two most expensive shows on television (the other being The Colgate Comedy Hour).

BONUS: 
14 minute clip from  ART LINKLETTER’S HOUSEPARTY FROM March 15, 1965 - Join Art and special guest Lucille Ball as they make an hilarious attempt to recreate how sound effects were used in old time radio programs.
