Bill Cullen hosts this game show from New York where contestants are shown film clips and then asked three questions about what they’ve just seen.
June 19,1954 episode – The show starts with a clip from “Apache” with Burt Lancaster. Tonight’s other clips are from “Johnny Dark” starring Tony Curtis and Piper Laurie, Mr.Hulot’s Holiday starring Jacques Tati and The Caine Mutiny with Humphrey Bogart,Jose Ferrer, Van Johnson, Fred MacMurray and introducing May Wynn. Bill Cullen is introduced as a comedy star that just flew in from Hollywood.
First contestants are Mrs.Joyce Collins from Atlanta,Georgia and John Rosen from London. Bill does a lame interview with them. He manages to tell some even lamer jokes. The contestants can win up to a hundred-fifty bucks and maybe a jackpot of two hundred-fifty. After the “Johnny Dark” clip. They win twenty-five bucks.
Next up is Roger Price from a new game show called “Eight O’Clock Monday Night.” Roger describes the show. It’s about droodles, little drawings that make a picture with the least amount of lines. He shows a few. Another lame bit.
Next contestants are Ann Marie Bernard from Paris and Edward Schmidt from New York. Cullen raises the lame-o-meter to a new high with another bad attempt at a comedic interview. They’re shown a clip from “Mr.Hulot’s Holiday.” They win a hundred twenty-five bucks.
Next up is Ann and Dick Dale from Highpoint,North Carolina. They’re shown a clip from “The Caine Mutiny.” May Wynn comes out to wave to everyone. The Dale’s win seventy-five dollars.
Ann Marie and Edward return for the bonus question. They’re going to hear but not see a clip. The audience and home viewers will get to see it. They have to identify the Oscar winning actress in the scene. They both agree it’s Donna Reed. Wrong. It’s Jennifer Jones. The clip was with Montgomery Clift from the movie “Indiscretion Of An American Wife.” Since they got it wrong next week’s jackpot will be five hundred bucks.
