So This Is Hollywood

Show Summary

Queenie Dugan and Kim Tracy were two young women trying to make it in the show biz capital of Hollywood. Queenie, the tall one, was an aspiring stuntwoman and Kim was looking for her big break as an actress.
The two friends shared a small apartment (so small they shared a bed) at La Paloma Court in Los Angeles. The plots generally revolved around the girls getting, or trying to get, small roles in films. Oddly, they seem to be constantly running into (and helping) over-the-hill down-on-their-luck former movie stars. Queenie's boyfriend was a rather slow young man named Hubie; Andy was Kim's agent and boyfriend.
The program was scheduled against the powerhouse program "The Jackie Gleason Show" and survived only half of a season. Following it's cancellation, producer Ed Beloin announced in August 1955 that three episodes had been edited together, along with new connecting scenes, and would be released as a film titled "It Happened in Hollywood." There's no evidence the flick made it to theaters.
Series director Richard L. Bare would go on to lasting fame as the director of all but one episode of Green Acres . Star Virginia Gibson went on to a nine year gig as host of the children's program "Discovery" from 1962-1971.moreless
