"All Hands On Deck"

Veteran projectionist Mike Schleigel advises that we get to see the Palms Theatre in "All Hands On Deck" (20th Century Fox, 1961).  He should know: it was one of his favorite theatres to work in for years.

The film, directed by Norman Taurog, is a musical starring Pat Boone, Buddy Hackett, Barbara Eden and Dennis O'Keefe. Boone gets four songs including "You Mean Everything To Me." The story revolves around a navy captain obsessed with catching a fish and an executive officer (Boone) wanting to get married. "All hands on deck... for the song-and-fun hit of '61!"

The theatre, at 3751 Motor Ave. in the Palms neighborhood (near Culver City), is no longer with us -- it was demolished in the late 80s. See our Palms Theatre page for a few photos.
