2. BINGO AT HOME (1955). Here's a lesson in really bad TV. Monty Hall hosts this unbelievably awful game show where viewiers compete against a bunch of frumps in the studio audience. Complete with commercials, but this is only the first half of a 60-minute (!) show. Believe us, 30 minutes is enough!

313 GAME SHOW PROGRAM, IX

1. PANTOMIME QUIZ (1955), complete with original commercials. Mike Stokey hosts this classic game of TV charades. Celebrity guests include Hans Conried and Jerry Lester. It's amazing how rude and nasty Stokey is to the teams, constantly telling them to shut up so he could talk, and he even goes so far as to cut Lester off during his allotted time. Stokey's one mean dude!
2. PASS THE LINE (1954). If you thought "Bingo at Home" in Volume VIII was bad, then you ain't seen nothing yet! This show actually looks like it was shot in someone's kitchen! A professional artist draws something, then a panel of celebrities (including a very young Jonathan Winters) tries to duplicate it.

Contestant Herb Stempel takes a pre-arranged dive on a movie question, which later on in the episode costs him his championship to Charles Van Doren (the “Quiz Show” film took a little liberty with what actually happened). Now you’ll see for yourself why this program created so much excitement when it first aired, and it’s complete with Geritol commercials.

318 GAME SHOW PROGRAM, XIII

1. ON YOUR WAY (1954). Bud Collyer hosts this rare game show from the Dumont Network. Part Strike It Rich, part Queen for a Day, part Earn Your Vacation, this show allows contestants who don’t have money to travel a golden opportunity to do so by answering questions correctly. Jackie Cooper is the celebrity guest. This kinescope ends just after the last commercial. The rest of the show, including the game play, is intact.
2. STOP THE MUSIC (1955). You can play along as you watch; in fact, that’s just what the home contestants did when the show aired live. Bert Parks hosts the competition in which studio contestants team with home viewers over the phone in an attempt to win $10,000 by correctly identifying tunes as quickly as they can. Jaye P. Morgan is the featured singer.
3. THE $64,000 QUESTION (1956). A great episode from the classic quiz show hosted by Hal March. Randolph Churchill makes his first appearance in this episode, and is so flustered that March actually “helps” him answer the first question so he can continue. What? You think the show was rigged? Get outta here!
4. THE PRICE IS RIGHT (1957). We’ve found another daytime live episode of the original version of the show with host Bill Cullen, a lot of wonderful prizes, and terrific contestants.

2. TWENTY ONE (7/8/57). A classic episode of the game show famous for contributing to the quiz show scandals of the late 1950s. Jack Barry hosts, and it’s another nail biter as two contestants each try to win over $100,000. Also complete with original commercials.
3. QUEEN FOR A DAY (1958). Get your hankies out now - this has to be the most heart-tugging episode of the program we’ve yet to find.

4. DR. I.Q. (1958). Based on the radio show of the same name that created the popular catch phrase, “I have a woman in the audience, doctor”. Tom Kennedy is the host of this program (and he’s never referred to by name - just by “doctor”) in which studio audience members are awarded silver dollars every time they answer a question correctly.
