Stars Over Hollywood

Show Summary

This dramatic anthology series was the the first series produced by Revue studios. MCA activated the Revue title (which was, at the time, merely a defunct name owned by the company) and got into TV with this video version of the long-running NBC radio series. Unlike most series at the time, it was shot on film in Hollywood. To keep costs down, MCA used actors it already had on the payroll and paid them scale ($500 a performance). Because it was filmed, the series was able to be syndicated to local stations after its network run, making syndicated re-runs an innovation that Revue would use to great success. The series was also known by its sponsor name, "Armour Playhouse".
