Say The Secret Word

As a child I remember watching Groucho! How about you? I asked a young man just the other day, do you know  who Grouch Marx is?
30 + years and
he had never heard of my man Groucho! So here is a rerun....think I missed this one..... you might have too. This episode is from February 9, 1956.

Yes.... Groucho from The Marx Brothers fame of the movies from a decade or two before this....hosted a honest to goodness game show in the 50s.
"You Bet Your Life" Starring Groucho Marx....was a well loved program where Groucho would show off his wit and charm, trying to get the contestants to say the word of the day.

The first contestant to play 'You bet your life' on this showing, is a Mrs. Helen Schwartz, the mother of movie star Tony Curtis. The word for the day for this program was....door.
