Rich Fields back when be was a young man getting his start in the game show business did a pilot called TV Classics and which supposedly was taped at the Betty White Theater in Hollywood.  Any details on that?

Not a stage or studio, there is Ludden Lake in Wisconsin:

Quote
Ludden Lake is a reservoir located just 1.3 miles from Mineral Point, in Iowa County, in the state of Wisconsin, United States.

Rob Lloyd says it is more like Ludden puddle.

Unless it was like the "Chuck Barris Stages," which may not have been an official name; I'd heard in Wink Martindale's 1987 "Game Show Biz," special that the studio used for that year's revival of T or C, was "renamed the Ralph Edwards Theater."  I believe it was Metromedia studios in Hollywood.

Those shows were next door at KTLA. I've seen one of the eps. on YouTube; they had an outdoor segment, and the KTLA tower was noticeable.

If any studio deserved to be named after Ralph Edwards, it was Metromedia; at least 2 other versions of TorC, "Cross-Wits", NTT, and (I believe) "People's Court" were all done there.

/and I just remembered "So You Think You Got Troubles"

I really doubt it. The syndicated late 1970s Newlywed Game and Dating Game were taped at Golden West, which was owned by Gene and Jackie Autry.

There was the Steve Allen Playhouse at 1228 Vine Street in Hollywood, near the Hollywood Ranch Market. People Are Funny was filmed there, and later the Steve Allen Show was taped there for Westinghouse. The interior was gutted by fire in 1990.

Sadly there exists no current venue that could be named after Bill Cullen.

I always liked the sound of "The Bill Cullen Theatre"...
