“Vintage Los Angeles” has launched an exciting new channel with all original content!

Episode 3: La Dolce Vita

Vintage Los Angeles sent Aj Benza out on a special assignment to visit one of the greatest vintage Rat Pack style restaurants in the city called La Dolce Vita!! I can’t imagine anyone better than our former host from “Mysteries & Scandals” to bring back the latest on one of Frank Sinatra’s favorite spots! It’s been beautifully cared for and restored by owner Allesandro Uzieli.

Episode 2: A Cast of Caricatures

In our latest VLA-TV episode, we take you inside the Palm Restaurant’s West Hollywood location before their move to Beverly Hills. I’m sure many of you have been wondering what happened to all those legendary caricatures on the walls. Well, VLA was there to capture all the excitement with Angie Dickinson, Mamie Van Doren, Shecky Greene and many other dedicated customers!! We also reveal the back story of The Palm with owners, Bruce Bozzi, and Wally Ganzi! This is one of the most unique preservation stories in L.A. history!

Episode 1: Tail O’ The Pup

VLA’s web series premieres with a feature on the beloved Los Angeles roadside eatery “Tail O’ The Pup” which mysteriously disappeared from the streets of West Hollywood nearly a decade ago. Its whereabouts have been in question ever since. Vintage Los Angeles uncovers the original hotdog facade that was built in the 1940s and interviews its long-time owners The Blake Family in this exclusive mini-documentary, highlighting the colorful history and future of this lost Angeleno treasure.

She was stunning! I would see her, hubby Robert Wagner, & children often at Thrifty Drug Store in Beverly Hills back in the early '70s. What a beautiful looking family. Happy Birthday Ms. Wood. 💗

This photo always just struck as a photo that could have been taken yesterday she was just sooo vibrant!

Happy Birthday!!!

That is a particularly great photo!

“Splendor “ ! Gone too soon.

Always gorgeous.

Damn, she was beautiful.

To quote a memorable John Prine song "Like Natalie Wood on a Pontiac hood."

Bella!

Yep, great pic. Hair, makeup... that DRESS, the color ❤️.

💖💕💖

Classic beauty.

She was killed by the two who rode high on fame the entire time, now old and living in regret & shame. Wagner should have been prisoned for life a long time ago. Was never a guess as to "who done it".

Her fear of water turned out to be totally justified. 😢

💛

She looks so much (or rather the other way around) like MSNBC's Natasha Bertrand #Journalist <3 Love Natalie Wood #RIP 🙏😎

Sigh

...she was "the bomb"...

All drunk her wearing a down jacket .. No ones fault..

When you could talk to a woman. Before all this # fake accusations

Lisa Ann!

Vintage Los Angeles

Last night at the historic Hollywood Bowl, HUGH JACKMAN performed an incredible tribute to the old glory days of film.

If you get a chance to see his show while he’s on tour, you’re in for quite a treat. He jumps, he taps, he runs, he charms.... and he loves old Hollywood! Here he is performing LUCK BE A LADY starting off with fanfare. His rendition of SINGING IN THE RAIN is also posted within the thread. ☔️

He’ll be performing again tonight at the Bowl!

SINGING IN THE RAIN

My son Bryce and his friend Ben saw Jackman very recently in Dallas. They were quite impressed with the show. Alison Vintage Los Angeles, I know it's a lot of work behind the scenes and long hours, but "What A Wonderful Life" you star in (with or without Sir Paul's music)!

Ahh, the Bowl, a perfect setting for that. He is so talented. I'd love to see his show.

Saw him in Toronto a few weeks ago - fabulous show!!

Love this - thank you 🙏 I’ve only been to bowl once to see my niece - it’s great

Thanks for posting this - prepping my picnic for tonight's show!

I was there last night as well - he was awesome in every way!

Can’t wait!

Glory days of Hollywood,wow love that❤️hooray for Hollywood🎶

Isn't this Luck Be A Lady?
