Earl Carroll Theater on Sunset Blvd is one of those places I wish I’d had the chance to experience. It was one of those extravagantly plush nightclubs from back in the day before television made us all content sit on our couch and order in pizza. The Earl Carroll gave you a “lavish revue, dinner and dancing” all for $2.50—sounds like a great deal to me.

Along with looking at footprints at Grauman’s, the Earl Carroll was a must see for visitors in Hollywood. That goofy ‘quiz’ show, Queen For A Day, did their simulcast for radio & TV out of this place for awhile in the 50s. I think it was already Moulin Rouge by then however.“
