Hollywood’s Open House - Pgm 52

May 3rd, 2010

Here's another episode of "Hollywood's Open House", a syndicated Kermit-Raymond Corporation variety series notable for some of the stars that appeared on the program.

Program 52 features guest Jackie Gleason, still in his nightclub days, doing his "Jukie, the Jukebox" routine.  (He does the same routine on a Kate Smith AFRS Christmas show in my collection.)  Anita Louise and host Jim Ameche appear in a dramatic sketch, "The Yearning Heart".
