Material presented on the show came from "hit movies, stage successes, best-seller novels and short stories, with each star selecting something in which he or she had appeared or wanted to appear." Productions included "Golden Boy," "Elizabeth the Queen," "Fifth Avenue Girl" and "Rebecca."
Except for the selection of material by stars, Hollywood Players' format was much like that of a number of other radio programs of its time. A 1946 article in the trade publication Billboard quoted one advertising agency person who included Hollywood Players among a group of "more would-be Lux Radio Theaters than ever."
