Storyline

A few years after Perry Como left as host, "The Kraft Music Hall" was revived as a regular series from 1967-71. There was no set host during this period, and various guest hosts, usually a singer or comedian, presided on a weekly basis. There were several theme shows during "Music Hall"'s run, among them "A Taste of Funny, " hosted by Groucho Marx, "The Golden Age of TV Comedy, " hosted by Milton Berle, and "The Best of Broadway, " hosted by Henry Fonda. Frequent guest hosts included Berle, Eddy Arnold, John Davidson, and the singing team of Tony Sandler and Ralph Young. The Country Music Association Awards were first run as a special edition of the Music Hall in 1967. A victim of the general decline of weekly variety shows, "The Kraft Music Hall" was cancelled in 1971. Written by Bob Sorrentino

dancing
8 January 2005 | by aragoncanarzdaSee all my reviews

It was a fun show. I would like to see the names of the choreographers and dancers. I know Betsy Haug was one of the dancers for one season or series. I think we need a cable channel just for variety shows so we can see all the old shows again. Or somehow get new ones on the air. Where are the talented singers, dancers, actors supposed to appear? How are new songs supposed to get introduced? Where are choreographers supposed to create? This is why our popular culture has no culture, no class, no talent or quality. It takes skills, training, and the desire to do things better, not just different, or louder. One needs to build from the past, not just throw it aside.
