This show featured four rotating stars, Charles Boyer, David Niven, Ida Lupino, and Dick Powell in individual episodes consisting of everything from comedy to drama.
The original four stars who were to appear in this show were Charles Boyer, Joel McCrea, Dick Powell, and Rosalind Russell. McCrea and Russell pulled out soon after the company was formed, and were replaced by Ida Lupino and David Niven.
In episode 1.2, "Dante's Inferno," the character played by Regis Toomey is listed as "Lt. Wald," even though he is referred to in dialog several times as "Lt. Waldo." The role of Herb Vigran is identified there as "Monty Leeds," but in all subsequent episodes set in the titular nightclub the name is given as "Monte [no surname]."
The syndicated rerun version of the episode "The House Always Wins" (4/28/1955), also used for at least one video release, is missing Jack Benny's cameo appearance.
