“Vintage Los Angeles” has launched an exciting new channel with all original content! VLA has been busy partnering up with The Ebersole Hughes Company on a new web series featuring beloved Los Angeles landmarks, forgotten places, and residents of the city whose stories have been generated through the community of Vintage Los Angeles.  We plan on documenting and preserving every bit of it!  Our Delorean is all fueled up and ready to go, so jump in!

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.

Lots of changes... some good some bad... Elaine Young... gee I loved her.. poor thing turned into a scary monster with terrible plastic surgery but this footage shows how beautiful she once was. in 1981

Great time capsule. Ralph Story was the best!

Now I really feel old,Jess was a great journalist

Loved Ralph Story. Got to meet him once at his shop in Los Olivos. He’d retired by then. It was a treat being able to thank him.

I loved that...can't even buy an ice cream cone for less than a dollar!

great find!..love this!..:)

I loved Ralph Story.

As a police officer I remember Stan Chambers from KTLA. He was the one reporter we all trusted and gave inside scoops to. Nice, honest man who was not out to make a name for himself. He just wanted to report the facts.

Ralph Story was great.

Jess Marlow! He was the newsman in San Jose at KNTV when I was a kid. I did (local schmokle) commercials there during breaks.

Jess Marlow... Now, HE was a journalist.

Great find Alison!! Thank You!!!

Lived at 428 1/2 Doheny Dr. Beverly Hills. $225 a month. 1978 to 1982. Great times

-2:20 shows one of my favorite buildings in all of LA that remains the same -- Pacific Theatres at Beverly and Robertson.

Wow, Elaine Young was a knock-out.

I was working at KNXT in 81 back when Connie Chung was news anchor and Keith Oberman did the sports

Oh my god! the smog! Wow lol.... It bothers me when out of towner's confuse the Marine Layer with the smog of the 70's, 80's and 90's

Hey, Jess Marlow

Priceless, thanks for sharing 👏👏👏💜

Intersting footage. Never saw it before. I only run the Rodeo Drive once a year during the LA Marathon.

Wow!! This old footage is amazing. It’s also amazing how all these problems the folks in the video complain still exist today.. only the prices they mention have now quadrupled! I work in Beverly Hills and I’m constantly shocked at the amount of travel/traffic that comes through on a daily basis.

This report from 1981 definitely predicted the future of Beverly Hills!!

That’s Jess Marlow!

I miss Connie and Jerry Dunphy
