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
In two 15-minute segments, Don Adams would direct the re-creation of a classic film moment using contestants/would-be actors. The making of the re-enactment was the comic part, even if the scene itself was not.
I remember them recreating Marlon Brando in "On the Waterfront" and the beach kiss in "From Here to Eternity".
Hysterically funny? No, but I remember that we made a point to watch it each week (in the pre-VCR days, don't you know?)
