A Cross-Sectional Retrospective

TV'S GREATEST GAME SHOWS is kind of a retrospective of some of the favorite game shows of the 1940s-early 1960s. The format of the disc is to discuss a certain number of shows from a particular game show format. When the show aired, what networks it was broadcasted on, how the show was played, who hosted, and usually some interesting facts about the show. That's followed by a segment (and in some cases almost an entire show) from one or two of the shows that were mentioned earlier. Some of the more memorable segments I remember from the DVD are when Salvador Dali appeared on "The Name's the Same", Harper Marx visiting Grocho on "You Bet Your Life", and the first part of the appearance of Vincent Price on "The $64,000 Challenge". Most of the video segments on the DVD can be found somewhere in the nether regions of the Internet, but only if you know exactly what you are looking for. Personally, I think it's more convenient seeing them here on this DVD because not only do you get to see the videos but you're also given some context about them. I enjoyed watching this DVD and found it both entertaining and educational.
