      • Malcolm Macfarlane, editor of BING magazine, provided the following reviews: "An hour for the grown-ups with Bing Crosby, Ella Fitzgerald, Alice Faye and Phil Harris. Crosby, Alice and Phil revive old Fox movie musical tunes. Ella sings rounds with Bing. Alice dances to 'Mame'. Dom DeLuise's bank commercial. English comedians Hendra & Ullett talk about the RAF and Danny Saylor's pole-climbing act round out the highlights of the show."
        ('Los Angeles Herald Examiner' 18th February 1967)
        "Bing Crosby played host to Ella on 'The Hollywood Palace' …the show was most identified with Bing Crosby, who hosted approximately once every four weeks and did his Christmas shows as part of the series. Der Bingle introduced Ella as, 'The Sandy Koufax of Song, the Brooks Robinson of Rhythm, the All-Star of Timing – The Peerless One.' This was their first professional pairing since the old radio days and they were obviously enjoying each other. Ella wore a heavily frosted wig and black, strapless evening gown with a chiffon sheath and a bow at the back. . . The obligatory medley had Ella and Bing discussing that the best way to get started in singing was to do children's songs. Bing joked that he knew every children's song (alluding to his late-in-life second family), leading into the medley and then the two songsters' theme songs, (Bing whistled as Ella scatted)."
