Popular Network Show for 7 Years
18 June 2007 | by RodneyRecorSee all my reviews

That's Hollywood was a popular TV show on the ABC network for seven years beginning in 1976, with it's final season produced for 1982. The show was an historical documentary program featuring film clips from major Hollywood motion pictures, creatively edited into a narrative accompanied by voice-over explaining the characters, story, and production information. Actor Tom Bosley was the host narrator, with some segments featuring additional guest narration by the actors, producers, directors, and other crafts persons in the film clips. Produced by Twentieth Century-Fox Television, the program was comprised primarily of film clips from motion pictures produced by the 20th Century-Fox studios, but also included the work of other production companies when demanded by important emphasis on the episode subject.

That's Hollywood was one of the first regularly produced programs to be prepared entirely on videotape. Episodes were edited using early electronic videotape editing technology unsophisticated by today's standards. Each episode was prepared by a Writer/Producer and Co-Producer/Editor team.
