Storyline

This was an unusual game show. People who want to become actors are given the opportunity to appear in a major movie or TV show. When the show begins host Don Adams announces the three finalists, who are in the audience, and chooses one of them to come down. With a notable actor or actress, they reenact a scene from a famous movie. After being made up they try to shoot the scene but the flubs and errors known as outtakes are shown to entertain the audience. In the end two of these scenes are shot and a notable director chooses who gave the better performance. The winner gets to be in an upcoming movie or TV show. Written by rcs0411@yahoo.com

I've loved old movie ever since I was a kid. I was 13 when this played on TV. I expected the worst but tuned in. Actually it was pretty fun! Seeing some "name" actors enacting scenes from classic Hollywood films with amateurs was...bizarre (but fun). The ones that stand out were Loretta Swit in "Werewolf of London"; Don Rickles (doing Marlon Brando) in "On the Waterfront", Ed Asner in "Psycho"; Danny Thomas (doing Burt Lancaster) in "From Here to Eternity" and Darren McGavin (doing Humphrey Bogart) in "To Have and Have Not". The show wasn't exactly hilarious but just fascinating to watch. The only bad thing is that Don Adams wasn't given enough to do. A fun short-lived show from the 1970s.
