Goofs

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 »

I was surprised
24 November 2017 | by pguzik-73666See all my reviews

This film was better than I expected! Sure, it was a little bit boring, but it told a lot about game shows and interviewed some well-known people, such as Howie Mandell, Vannah White, Pat Sajak, and Alex Trebek. A good film to record and watch. One criticism I have is they do not go that deep into the game shows, and I wish they would show some game show fails
