Did You Know?


The show uses New York baseball as a backdrop to introduce the first televised game show in 1941. Alex Trebek describes fans in Yankee Stadium on a sweltering hot day watching Joe DiMaggio's 56-game hitting streak unfold. However, the video footage shows Washington Senators pitcher Red Anderson giving up the hit to DiMaggio that broke the record previously established by George Sisler. However, the narrative is incorrect - the game being shown did not take place in Yankee Stadium, but in Griffith Stadium in Washington DC on June 29, 1941. The TV show in question ("Truth or Consequences") was broadcast two days later on July 1, 1941. The Yankees were at home then but were playing the Boston Red Sox. See more »

Not sure why the rating is so low. This was pretty darn good.
6 January 2019 | by bigfatmouth-23883See all my reviews

The film covered a wide range of shows, a few of which I had never even heard of. However, being a kid of the 70s, some of the footage from that time was great to see.

Could they, perhaps, have gone more in depth? I guess, but then the film would've been three hours long. I think they used the time wisely, as I was never bored.

Great job!
