Shell Chateau was a musical variety series that began on June
29, 1935, with Al Jolson serving as its host. Some sources even mention that the
program was developed around Jolson and his talents. However, Jolson left the
series briefly in the fall of 1935 due to a movie commitment. Wallace Beery, one
of the country’s most popular film stars of the period took over the host
position following a one week stint by radio newsman, Walter Winchell. Jolson
returned in January of 1936, but didn’t hang around for long and departed
permanently in April 1936.
Based on a recommendation by the program’s music director,
Victor Young, Smith Ballew was installed as the new host and remained with the
program for the remainder of 1936. Smith Ballew had previously worked
extensively on records with Victor Young; they had been friends since 1926. The
Shell Chateau program appears to be one of Ballew’s last gig’s as a big band
musican and he started carving out a name for himself as an actor, when Sol
Lesser invited Ballew to do a series of 'B' Westerns for Twentieth Century Fox
as a singing cowboy.
In 1937, the program was reorganized around the Legendary
Broadway comic Joe Cook. The essential format remained the same until the series
ended in June 1937.
It’s unfortunate that this certified series is missing the
episodes featuring Walter Winchell and Joe Cook, perhaps one day representative
episodes will became available.
