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
Wonderful game show for fans of film and fun in general
This vintage game show had contestants become actors in scenes from famous movies. A mock-up set was built on the game show stage, many times it was an amazing re-creation of a famous set. The contestants had to re-inact said movie scene opposite actors provided by the show. My fondest memories of this show featured one guest, some woman, made-up to recreate Elsa Lanchester's hissing BRIDE OF FRANKENSTEIN. Another contestant, a man off the street had to re-do the famous death scene "...thanks for the bullet..." from WEREWOLF OF LONDON. They even had an in-camera tranformation effect. It was a great insight to the film-making process.
