Personal Quote:

Two reasons, money and exposure. [Also,] it's no strain...shows of the type I do don't require a lot of rehearsal and preparation. See more »

Trivia:

On I've Got a Secret (1952), producers Mark Goodson and Bill Todman and host Garry Moore quickly learned to never start the questioning with Cullen if the guest's secret was anything sports-related or mechanical, because chances were good that he would guess it immediately. See more »

Trademark:

Occasionally, at the beginning of his shows, he was either seated or stood to his podium. See more »
