Five-day-a-week syndicated revival of one of Goodson-Todman's most durable and longest-lived formats: A celebrity panel determines which of three contestants is the actual person associated with a given story.
Contestants were asked questions about how 100 people answered a poll question then played a card game where they tried to guess whether the next card drawn from a deck in a sequence would be higher or lower.
Monty Hall hosts this hilarious half-hour gameshow in which audience contestants picked at random, dressed in ridiculous costumes, try to win cash or prizes by choosing curtain number 1, 2 or 3. Before the contestant could decide, Monty would tempt them with something from within a small box, or flash cash in front of them. It was the contestant's chance to win something big, but deep down, they knew they might get "zonked" by choosing the wrong curtain. Some contestants actually ended up with a donkey or pig, or other rotten prize, and some actually came out with cars, cash or jewelry. Near the end of every show, Monty would give out cash prizes to anyone carrying whatever it was he asked for. You should see some of the strange things people carry! Written by

This was the only U.S. game show in which the prize values were given out to the penny (i,e, "It retails for $1285.95.") All other game shows round off the prices to the nearest dollar. See more »

Would you make a deal to trade up to five hundred dollars in cash for one of these three doors, knowing behind one of them is $3,254 in cash or valuable merchandise? Several people may have to make that decision during the next few minutes as we bring you The Marketplace Of America: "LET'S MAKE A DEAL"! And now, here's America's top trader, TV's Big Dealer, MONTY HALL!

Monty Hall will always be linked to this classic game show. A lot of people probably wouldn't list him in their Top 10 game show hosts but he's on mine. Monty Hall, like Gene Rayburn of Match Game, had no ego and respect for his contestants. I think the fact that he was Canadian made him more agreeable and friendlier.
Let's Make A Deal allowed us to see how much greed would play in a factor with people. Would they accept what they had or risk it all for a chance to win something better and would it work out? Will they get the "booby prizes" (the zonks)? It's fun to see the people in crazy Hallowe'en costumes, the horrible cars they gave away, or the zonks. If you have GSN and you're an early riser then check out this gem; although considering that GSN is planning a big change to their network in mid-March you might not get another chance for awhile.
Monty Hall is a rarity in the fact that he appeared in almost every version of the show. He even did a Canadian version. Without the Dealmaster, it wouldn't be the same.
