Storyline

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!

Trivia

The original pilot was designed by a former NBC-Burbank staff Art Director Bob Kelley, with Hub Braden assisting as draftsman and Assistant Art Director. Wink Martindale was tested as Host for the pilot, video taped on Stage 4 with an audience. Three shows were rehearsed and taped for a pilot presentation. Wink Martindale was a young handsome radio personality, also being tested and auditioned for a NBC's daytime television program host position. The game show was sold for the NBC daytime program schedule with Monty Hall replacing the TV Pilot's Host, Wink Martindale. John Shrum, NBC-Burbank Art Department Staff Art Director, was assigned the show by Milt Altman (NBC Art Dept. Management Director), a usual procedure when a pilot was picked up. Bob Kelley had quit his position with NBC-Burbank's art department staff; he was hired, brought back to design the set as an independent freelance Art Director. Kelley did not want to be tied down with a day-time series. Jay Krause and Spencer Davies, also staff NBC roster art directors, would not accept the show assignment. John Shrum's sense of humor and creative ability was ideal for the nonsense the producers required of an Art Director... crazy. See more »

Fun game show
6 August 2008 | by (Chantilly, Virginia, USA) – See all my reviews

First off, I must say that this is a fun game show. Also, since I'm 26, I haven't seen every episode. However, I do know the show very well. Every time I've watched it, I've had a lot of fun playing along and watching. The thing I like most about it are the deals, but the costumes the contestants wear are really goofy. Still, I still have fun playing along. I hope the Game Show Network keeps it on so I can play along and watch again. If that happens, I will be really happy. Before I wrap this up, I'd like to say that I'll always remember this show in my memory forever. Now, in conclusion, I hope that you catch it one day before it goes off the air for good.
