You Bet Your Life

You Bet Your Life

This was the long-running comedy quiz show hosted by Groucho Marx. The show was the idea of a young producer, John Guedel; the idea based on an old parlour game. Three couples were brought onstage to be interviewed by Groucho. He would be, for once, quite serious. They were each given $20 and asked to bet as much as they dared on four questions from a category of their choice. If they won, their money would double. Therefore it was possible for couples to win either as much as $320, go broke on the first question or finish anywhere in between. The couple with the highest total went through to the jackpot question. It was said that the contestants did not care much for the money, they just wanted to see if they were shrewd enough to escape Groucho’s legendary verbal battering.
