This VHS videotape was produced by "Superior Home Video" in 1995, and provides many classic TV clips from the "Golden Age" of television game shows during the 1950s and 1960s.

With a brief narration to introduce each show presented, this 88-minute tape digs into the TV archives and brings up footage from 23 different TV game shows of the '50s and '60s.

My favorite "old-time" game shows were "To Tell The Truth", "The Price Is Right" (original Bill Cullen-hosted version), "You Bet Your Life", "I've Got A Secret", and "What's My Line?" (the John Daly-hosted variant).

All of the above programs garner some air time on this video -- except "What's My Line?", which is quite conspicuous by its absence. I cannot figure out why on Earth such a great (classic) game show would be excluded from a video titled "TV's Greatest Game Shows". A most curious omission.

"What's My Line?", in fact, should be right near the front of the pack when talking about "Classic" TV game shows -- it was on the air from February 1950 through 1967 (in its original form, with host John Daly). And even continued for many years after '67, as a syndicated show from 1968 to 1975, with Wally Bruner and Larry Blyden serving as the moderators in those subsequent seasons. A total of 2,191 "WML" episodes were produced and aired during its quarter-of-a-century on the air.

But, for whatever reason(s), the makers of this video decided to leave "What's My Line?" on the cutting-room floor. But, whether on this tape or not, it certainly deserves to be included as one of the best and most-watched TV game shows of all-time.

Segments on two other very good game shows that aired in the 1960s would also have made this video a bit more comprehensive -- "Password" and "Concentration".

This tape relives the memory of fifties quiz shows through short clips of kinescopes. The viewer is treated to both famous and obscure programs. Lots of funny segments and celebrities round things out. I enjoyed the video a lot; fellow game show fans should get their hands on it too.
