@steveorini – hi. Since you were there several times was there still the imprint of a salami in the sidewalk outside the theater?
Thanks to everyone who responded to my posts and filled in the gaps. Cheers, Bob
@Joe Vogel – Just checked it out on Google Earth and it looks like the theater was bowled at some point and replaced by a new building. I wonder what happened to the imprint of a salami on the sidewalk outside the stage entrance?
@menziesii – do you remember an imprint of a salami in set in the sidewalk outside the stage entrance when the Steve Allen Show was there?
@ Joe Vogel – Thanks for that. Reading through the posts I see Sonny & Cher mentioned. I interviewed them on several occasions. Initially in the offices of “Green Stone Productions” (named for Brian Green and Charlie (?) Stone) and at their new home in the valley. But the most memorable was the night they flew out for an ultra secret flight to perform at Caroline Kennedy’s birthday at Caroline’s request. Cher had given me and my photographer the exclusive, but we had to keep it under wraps until the party was over and S&C had returned to LA. Exciting times. I’ll post a link once I’ve written up that adventure and about the night I took the Makaha Skateboard Exhibition Team for an appearance on the Steve Allen Show (and the scene about the salami imprint in the concrete outside the theater).
Hi – Does anyone know if this is the theater from which “The New Steve Allen Show” was televised from around 1962 to 1965? The theater I’m thinking of was down the street from the Hollywood Ranch Market. Many thanks, Bob
