Gateway to Hollywood


This is the show that started it all!  Pictured are the two winners Lee Bonnell (Terry Belmont) and Josephine Cottle (Gale Storm).

"George Fisher is so confused on the dedication day of the Associated Broadcasting Corporation's ABC Network when the network celebrated its full-time coast-to-coast operations that he mistakes Gale Storm for Dale Evans, Gale, Monogram star, chides Fisher, while Dale, Republic leading lady at right, puts hands on hips, disgusted with George."

If you click here, you will see a video of "Teenage Prayer" with Gale and Tony Pastor's Orchestra from the "Let's Go to Town" radio broadcast.  The images in the video are of Gale singing "Teenage Prayer", but I'm not certain of the location.
