“I recall the opening of the Cromdale when it was first built. They had a grand opening and they had some very important actors and and actresses and performers. And it seems to me that Bob Hope, and I don’t know if I am remembering right, but Bob Hope was flown in and he was one of the acts there. He was a stand-up comedian. He wasn’t considered one of the icons yet in the 1950’s but he was still a big time actor. Actually Lou Grant came, the fellow with an organ and he was a big headliner there too.”
