One last photograph for tonight.

We have seen numerous orange stands on nla but I don't believe we have seen this particular photograph.

Pretty nice set-up for it being the middle of the Depression.

I guess the orange trees were unaware that a Depression was happening.

As you can see it was quite popular on eBay.



I don't know if this was taken while on location for one of those 1960s beach movies or if they're preparing for a fashion shoot of some kind.

If I had to guess I'd say this is somewhere. .um. .north of Malibu. ...(my Sherlock bona-fides) lol

So which one of these lovely ladies Bunny Yeager? :shrug:



The culvert reminds me of the scene in Chinatown where the bad hombres manipulate the water supply by releasing fresh water into the ocean.

Wondering if you remember what guests you saw on the programs?

https://imagizer.imageshack.com/v2/6...922/vin0Cg.jpg

The story is fascinating.

Here's the best explanation of what went wrong on opening night by Eddie Deezen.

I guess I never looked up any info on the Jerry Lewis Show from 1963. I'd just heard it was a "colossal flop", but this info is quite fascinating!

I looked up the link, but there isn't any information about who the author, Eddie Deezen, is. I doubt Deezen is a common name so I'm assuming it's this Eddie Deezen:

https://cdn.manzoom.ir/media/person_...rop_detail.jpg

...the actor I remember from 1970's movies like I Wanna Hold Your Hand, 1941 and Grease? In a way, Eddie Deezen is another form of Jerry Lewis. Would one say "a poor man's Jerry Lewis"?

I remember watching Jerry Lewis' variety show that was on 1967-69. Maybe not all of it. There's at least one episode of it on youtube.

I'm beginning to remember that we discussed the hydraulic lift attached to Jerry Lewis' chair so he could hilariously go up and down. The French loved it. :haha: lol

A King's :pimpdaddy:ransom for anyone who can find a clip of the chair going up and down. (I believe it would go really high. .like several feet!)

Yes, I'm obsessed with the chair.
.
_________________________________________________________________

Well, I wish I could collect that ransom, but not so far. What I can say so far about the 1963 Jerry Lewis Show:

Here's a youtube link to an ABC promo for the show:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=05SywmOvKGc

Egads! It's near 3 1/2 minutes! And, I have to say, bad, or annoying, or you be the judge. Who would even watch the show after watching that? (I know people were more forgiving back then, no?)

Next: I found an entire episode of the show on youtube. It's not the first or last episode. (And, no, it's not in color.)
Video Link


Now, I perused the entire episode. There were some side shots of that chair, but never once did I see it raised or lowered. (Drats!) However, around 1:33:00 in the above video, Jerry does a song where he goes over to the television camera which is on a riser/crane -- whatever you call it, and continues the song wherein he is taken up into the air high above and then swung out above the studio audience. (!)

This episode was being sold on DVD by a website called Weiner World, but they don't seem to have it anymore. There are three available from private sellers on Amazon, though, in the $30 range.

Then I've discovered a youtube account by Donzify that has uploaded the entire first episode aired, though it's posted in 9 parts. This is the one Eddie Deezen writes about. They are not in a playlist, so you have to look for them. Here's the first one:

The Jerry Lewis Show '63 Premiere Part 1
Video Link


The first episode is also being sold on a site called TV Museum Episodes.
https://tv-museum.myshopify.com/prod...emiere-episode

I have not searched for the "rising chair" in this episode. Nor in the following one.

The youtube account also has the very last episode of the show posted, this one in 10 parts. However, the account has all of the parts in order (plus a few other things) in a Playlist here:

Martin Pal Nov 16, 2021 10:45 PM

Something else of interest, perhaps, that I discovered while searching things for the above post...

An old...or classic...car in front of Barney's Beanery.

https://64.media.tumblr.com/9071ba12...940b7da576.jpg

Although Barney's Beanery is familiar to NLA readers, I was reading something online at the King Rose Archives website. It states that their mission is "finding things in archives that have been hidden in plain sight and sharing them with the world. King Rose Archives has been collecting rare archival footage and photos for several years, mostly as a part of our production efforts."

https://www.kingrosearchives.com

They were talking about an event held at Barney's Beanery called the Mickey Awards, so I wondered what that was:

"Film-industry types routinely rented Barney's Beanery for Oscar-watching soirees and wrap parties. And in 1951, a week before the Academy Awards, Jerry Lewis and Dean Martin held an Oscar spoof there called the Mickey Awards.

"It was the first time in years anybody dared to laugh at Hollywood out loud," a Herald Examiner reporter wrote in 1951. "One irate press agent said the whole thing was 'anti-industry' and demanded it be called off."

The awards were the brainchild of Ezra Goodman, a Time magazine correspondent who, along with other film-industry reporters, felt that he was treated as a second-class citizen.

Studio producers told Lewis and Martin that they couldn't spoof the Oscars, said Johnny Grant, Hollywood's honorary mayor, in a recent interview.

But the show went on. Searchlights pierced the sky and wide-eyed fans filled the temporary bleachers outside.

Grant, then working as a disc jockey, welcomed stars as they arrived. "The press used to get together and pull off some real doozies," he said.

For the occasion, emcees Lewis and Martin rented the antique automobile -- an Isotta Fraschini -- in which Gloria Swanson was chauffeured by Erich Von Stroheim in "Sunset Boulevard." (The film was up for 11 Oscars that year; it won three.)

Von Stroheim accepted the Mickey for best performance by a foreign convertible. Burlesque legend Tempest Storm won for the "best two props" in a black and white production -- her breasts.

It also attracted the hot rod community according to Jim Miller who hosts the Land Speed Racing website. He writes that the Mickey Awards Show was held at Barney’s Beanery with most of the gang from Petersen Publishing behind the event. The emcee was Johnny Grant, but Dean Martin and Jerry Lewis made this their personal show. It’s a wonderful snapshot of a by-gone Hollywood era and shows just how much hot rodding and auto racing was an accepted part of the Hollywood culture. It’s hoped that we can make disks available to the public. David Parks, the youngest son of Wally Parks, states that many of the people helping to put on the presentation were employees of Petersen Publishing Company, including Barbara Livingston, who would become Mrs Wally Parks a decade later. Robert E. “Pete” Petersen had worked in the Hollywood movie industry prior to founding his business empire. Many of the stars knew and appreciated his efforts to protect their privacy from intrusion by the press and public. These stars often turned to Petersen for help in putting on events and Petersen was always willing to help. The Mickey Awards is a prime example of the Hot Rodders penchant for mocking the overly serious in society around them.

Eddie Deezen also looks like one of the two computer nerds in the film "War Games" with Matthew Broderick. The fellow had a good career playing nerds and geeks, as did Jerry Lewis (e.g. Nutty Professor). The inside joke was that Lewis was playing himself when he changed into the suave and arrogant seducer known as Buddy Love, the "Mr. Hyde" in this Jeckyl and Hyde update. Others said he was spoofing his ex-partner Dean Martin as he was in real life. Maybe a combination? Easily Jerry's best solo film, remade later with Eddie Murphy, also pretty good. The arrogant "Buddy Love"-like character came back partially when Lewis played an egotistical talk show host in Marty Scorcese's "The King of Comedy". He was kidnapped by Robert DeNiro's character, who wanted to be a comedian/talk show host himself to impress his girlfriend. It worked, after a jail sentence.

Lewis's lift chair sounds like a spoof of the hand cranked lift chairs, like barber chairs, in Chaplin's the "Great Dictator" (1941), a spoof of an evil but buffonish dictator modeled on Hitler. Chaplin's dictator and another dictator modeled on Mussolini (I recall played by Jack Okie) have a battle on who can crank their chair the highest. This film was the last in which Chaplin's "Little Fellow", the Tramp, appeared, and the only time he talked. The tramp saved the world in this film, since he was mistaken for the missing evil dictator, and gave a speech of world peace and brotherhood. If only it happened that way. :wiseman:

Martin Pal Nov 17, 2021 7:13 PM

Well...I saw the three Jerry Lewis Show episodes from my post above and have to report that I did not see any "hydraulic chair lift" segments, :shrug: , although looking for that was an impetus in sitting through much of it.

There were no big name guests that I recall. But there were several wannabe local Hollywood ladies, into makeup and fashion. During the commercial breaks these two women sat on stage with faces of total boredom but when the lights came on they flashed huge phony smiles that were a mile wide.

I haven't been to the Hollywood Bowl in forever, but they had a scheme called "stacked parking" where you'd park in long rows and you couldn't get out until the car in front of you had gone. (The term means something different these days). This looks like a demonic idea to make that bad situation worse, but more efficient and profitable.

Excellent research on the 1963 version of The Jerry Lewis Show, Martin Pal. I give you one of these dudes - - - > :worship:

Now I'm wondering if I dreamt the part about the hydraulic lift on Jerry's chair.







I just found this description of the renovated theater on IMDB....I think it might provide the answer.


" The Hollywood and Vine Street Theater, formerly the El Capitan Theatre, had been used for radio studio audience broadcasting. ABC-TV bought the property, renovated the old theater's interiors by filling in the orchestra pit (extending the stage footlights/apron forward by 20 feet), added a six-foot-wide concrete stage center camera aisle, connects the stage to a rear wall camera five-foot-deep aisle.

Adjacent to the left of the ramp, an audience seating area (camera left) was installed, with an access aisle dividing the block of seats and a side wall aisle, which seated approximately 230 guests. On the right side of the camera aisle, a smaller seating section was installed with six seats to each row of ten rows (60 seats). On the theater's right side, the orchestra area replaced the audience area and was maintained at stage level. On the back stage, behind the new proscenium, the fly floor was renovated, with the addition of lighting pipes (fly floor on stage right/camera left).

On stage left a new star dressing room was built. The first floor was a decorated lounge (with a front and mirrored back bar, stools, a spinet piano, sofa, armchairs and side/coffee tables); with a spiral staircase to the second upstairs floor make-up room, a small day-bed/sofa lounge and make-up chairs; an adjacent toilet equipped with a wall telephone hanging to the left of the commode (for Jerry Lewis to conduct his conference calls, even while on his throne).

The theater lobby was renovated. An engineering electronic, sound and tape room was located at the front area of the theater lobby; with the TV control room (sandwiched) facing the stage, with soundproof glass windows separating the technical operations area from the audience-stage area. The video electrical cable camera connections were installed for four stage cameras, one center crane camera and one balcony fixed camera.

Two boom dolly mikes were on either side of the proscenium stage. Upstairs offices at the front of the two story theater were redesigned/installed for Lewis Productions personnel. Production Designer Bill Morris designed a show home-base host desk area, with guest chairs, on an electric scissor lift platform. During the interview segments, Lewis' interview host area would be raised above the stage floor approximately 15 feet, which enabled the balcony audience to view the guest stars and Lewis. The cost to renovate the facility was $400,000."




So instead of Jerry's 'rising chair', the entire 'host and guest' area rose 15 feet.... Am I understanding that correctly?


What was the audience on the ground floor supposed to look at when the guest area was raised 15 feet so the balcony audience could see? :shrug: Wouldn't it be impossible for the people in the first few rows (on the ground floor) to see what was going on? They'd have to look straight up. . .and they still wouldn't be able to see the whole raised area......Right?


One more question:

Was it being raised up and down during the show? ...

From The New York Times:
LOS ANGELES, Aug. 17 [1974]—A powerful explosion leveled a warehouse and set off fires In an industrial area in east Los Angeles tonight.

Two persons were injured, the fire department reported.

Windows in buildings in a four‐block area surrounding the site were blown out and the police reported extensive looting.

The blast occurred at 8:40 P.M. at the Star Trucking Company, at 622 South Mateo Street. Witnesses said they saw a flash, then felt a jolt and saw huge billows of black smoke.

“A giant firework,” said one witness. “A giant fireball in the sky,” said another. The explosion was heard as far away as Hollywood, a distance of four miles.

The police declined to speculate whether there was any connection between the explosion tonight and a bombing Aug. 6 at Los Angeles International Airport as well as other recent bomb threats.

Capt. Bill Wedgeworth of the Fire Department said, “It looks like a bomb. We can't say definitely but it looks like a bomb.”

The area of the explosion is generally, uninhabited on weekends. The police reported, however, that looting was “a major problem” for a while.

Mayor Thomas Bradley was reported to be touring the area, which was strewn with debris and glass.

The city's police and fire departments were put on a “major emergency” basis because of the blast. Twenty‐two emergency units and several rescue ambulances responded to alarms. Power in the area was out and helicopters beamed lighting for firefighters.

The section, adjacent to the Los Angeles River, is occupied mostly by warehouses, factories and other industrial buildings. Except for security personnel, there were few people working in the area at the time.

The police placed cordons around the area as a huge crowd gathered.

“We have a 500‐foot‐by‐500‐foot building completely wiped out,” a fireman said. One police spokesman said, “It's a fallen down mess of bricks. The whole building caved in.”

Firemen said they had extinguished the fires within two hours of the explosion.
There's a picture at LAPL. The description says:
An explosion detonated in a truck parking lot and corrugated metal storage building at 662 S. Mateo Street. The explosion was caused by a load of corrosive chemicals in a warehouse of a trucking firm. Windows and glass shattered in dozens of buildings within several blocks radius of Star Trucking Co., site of the actual blast. Captain Boyce Reynolds, LAFD measures the depression in the asphalt at the blast site where the truck exploded. The depression measured 17 ft. by 9 ft. by 5 inches deep.

_________________________________________________________________

Hmm...

In the first episode of the show when they had the technical difficulties that Eddie Deezen wrote about, Jerry mentions something about a "big screen" going out or not working, so that the people in the balcony couldn't see anything. He jokes that the show is LIVE and that so many millions of people are watching the show across the whole United States, but the people in the balcony can't see it.

This makes me wonder if the riser thing was put in after the first show, perhaps? It would have to have been done before the next week's show, however.

I watched most all of the three shows (first, last, and a show in between (nine were done) and I never noticed this area being lifted up or down.

But check this out: In this segment below, at about the 5 minute mark, Jerry is talking to "Mr. Cross, his producer" off camera. He asks him to give him something ("a sign") and someone named Charlie hands it to him. If you notice, Jerry and the person in the guest chair (Del Moore) are all looking downward while talking to the people and the Del reaches downward to get the card, which probably means they are on that riser.

At about 3:05, Jerry is on stage to the right of the set and walks over to it and sits at his desk, so it's not raised at that point. Do they raise it after he sits down? Is there a little movement in the camera/picture we see while it' being raised, or just the quality of the video?

Video Link


ABC did spend an enormous amount in renovating the theatre for this show, which turned out to be unsuccessful, or a disaster, but they ended up getting their money's worth with the subsequent run of The Hollywood Palace from January 4, 1964, exactly two weeks after the last Jerry Lewis Show, through 1970.

On youtube, if you search "Hollywood Palace full episodes," you will find 73 of them posted there, including the very first one. Most include the commercials and some have the time stamps on them. There used to be 75, near 40% of the run, but two of them got taken down because of music copyright complaints. 192 episodes were produced. According to his IMDB page, Jerry Lewis never appeared on The Hollywood Palace.

We've covered the O'Connor Electro-Plating Corp explosion a few times over the years, but sadly, most of the images are now missing. A video screengrab in one of my posts from 2016 is still available, although I've had to refresh the video link since USC's site update a few month's ago has rendered all historic links to their site completely worthless. As anyone who's visited their site recently will have discovered, they've also made things harder to find and drastically reduced the resolution of their once gloriously large images. Not a case of one step forward and two back - to me it's more like no steps forward and ten back. Sometimes I struggle to think of a single website that's had a major makeover and got better!

Just my two cents.

Thanks for the information on the 1974 explosion slides, HoosC and odinthor. I appreciate it.

& it's good to see that the two-story building so close to the explosion survived.


Here's a closer look at entrance with its fine looking metal-work.

I see that the arched doorway is partially hidden by the triangular 'pediment' thingy. . .not to mention the odd space between the column capital and the faux-pediment. ...Something doesn't jive.

Even with its problems, I like the entrance..... It has character. :)
