The Fool painted the Aquarius in its distinctive style.
On the Best of the Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour Season 3 dvd's, they have an episode featuring a performance by the West Coast
cast of Hair at the Aquarius Theatre on one of the programs. (It was done at CBS Television City). It features the co-creators of the
musical as well as Jennifer Warren and they sing Aquarius, Hair and The Flesh Failures (Let the Sunshine In). While this particular
episode was being prepared, 60 Minutes, new at the time, visited the set and shot some footage which is included in the bonus material.

Does anyone know when the Earl Carroll Theater was affiliated with CBS?
old file of mine
I wasn't aware of this before, either, E_R
. I found this photo on the CBS Television City website in the Gallery section:
It has the following caption:
The Earl Carroll Theater at 6230 Sunset Blvd., nearly across the street from CBS Columbia Square.
It was one of several venues used by CBS Televison for production prior to the construction of
Television City in 1952.
There's currently a CBS radio show ticket on eBay [HERE]
for a broadcast from Earl Carroll's Theatre in 1946 of MEET THE MISSUS.
And the Television City website has this ticket for a television program in 1952:
And, related, here's a photograph from the early 50's of Sunset Blvd., looking east, the Palladium and CBS are on the left, Earl Carroll's, or probably Moulin Rouge at that time, on the right.
Looks like TEX BENEKE is playing at The Palladium!
The yellow orange
truck heading east, does that say Nesbitt's?
The Nesbitt's Fruit Products Company was founded in 1924 by Hugh S. Nesbitt, and was franchised from Nesbitt Fruit Products, Los Angeles, California.
It was purchased by the Clorox Co. in 1972.
