A Labor of Love for Don Adams, 16 June 2011
Author: hfan77 from St. Louis Park, MN

"How would you like to be in the movies?" asked Don Adams each week at the opening of his own Screen Test show. It was a pretty funny game show where contestants teamed up with celebrities to reenact famous movie scenes. What made the show so funny was the numerous flubs from the contestants as they tried to master the scene.

To me, it was a labor of love for Adams, a classic movie buff who also directed a number of episodes of his classic sitcom Get Smart and appeared as a guest on the syndicated game show The Movie Game. But unfortunately, Screen Test suffered against the Prime Time Access competition as well as pressure from distributor MCA to change the format and that's what contributed to its demise after only one season. But in the 80s, when blooper shows became popular on network TV, outtakes from Screen Test resurfaced on the ABC series Foul Ups, Bleeps and Blunders. At least the show got somewhat of a second life and it should have had a longer run if it wasn't for corporate interference.
