I had just visited Universal Studies, Hollywood in 1968, when I was 15
and saw sets where they filmed The Name of The Game. Growing up with
Bat Masterson and The Untouchables, I was a big fan of two of the
stars, Gene Barry and Robert Stack. Susan St. James was just a young
lady as Peggy Maxwell at 22 years of age. Tony Franciosa was fine too
though I think he got into some type of dispute with the studio and
disappeared from the show.
The 90 minute show ran on Friday nights and I remember enjoying it quite a bit. I have not seen it in some time and really hope it will be available on DVD sometime soon. It was shot in color and I think ran for about three years. Though the show is now almost 40 years old, I know I would still have fun watching it. My kids would laugh at the rotary dial telephones and lack of computers but to me it would still be a blast. They would recognize Robert Stack from Airplane though! Tony Franciosa was good but my favorites were Barry and Stack. The action, cars, outfits and setting were all classy. Please bring it back on DVD!
