64 Thousand Dollar Question, The (1955)

If it was a Tuesday night in 1955, you were watching this show if you were watching TV. President Eisenhower said he didn’t want to be disturbed while watching the $64,000 question. This show was crooked. The Congressional investigation made Patty Duke cry in front of Congress when she admitted she was coached to cheat on the show.

  1. Wow, I’ve never heard that…about the show & Patty Duke crying.

  2. I remember watching this show as a kid and, later, the scandal associated with it. It was, however, good to see Joice Brothers, I had forgotten that she had been a winning contestant on that show. Good to relive the good old days of television.
