Motion Picture MagazineJimmy ValentineEvery Thursday night from 1944 to 1948, Motion Picture magazine presented Hollywood's Open House which was part variety show and part radio play. Each week, the show featured a guest star, radio plays, and music. The famous star selected a favorite movie and presented scenes from that movie along with the cast from the show.

Eric MadrigueraIn addition to the scenes presented by the guest star, the editor's of Motion Picture Magazine selected a favorite movie and the show's cast presented their own versions of scenes from the movie or scenes directly from a book if the film selected was based on a book. With the music and radio plays, Hollywood's Open House always had something interesting to present.

During the show's run, there were two orchestras beginning with the Enric Madriguera Orchestra followed by Ray Bloch and His Orchestra. Patricia Gilmore was the "girl singer" with the Madriguera Orchestra and Harry Cool was the male singer. Jim Ameche, actor Don Ameche's younger brother, was the show's announcer as well as acting in the radio plays.

To be entertained more, check out these old time radio shows: Barrel of Fun, Bing Crosby, Jack Benny, Cresta Blanca, and Hollywood Star Playhouse.
