Storyline

Television's first treatment of "Charades" as played by Hollywood celebrities. The giveaway was the use of gestures that defined "film", "TV show", "book" or "song" as well as "small word (a, an, the)"and gestures for syllables, number of words, and expand or stretch . I remember later as I grew up that "Charades" used these gestures from the show I remembered in my youth as "Stump the Stars." Written by Andrew Melisano

My Favorite TV Quiz Show of All Time
27 March 2020 | by seyulishSee all my reviews

We have had so much fun watching the few episodes available. Our favorite combination is Ross Martin and Beverly Garland. They made hundreds of these shows-the series ran for so long. Where are they all?
