You bet!

We've been watching some 1954 episodes of You Bet Your Life! and they are extremely entertaining. I liked them the first time around and I still do. The pairings of contestants in the four shows seen were fascinating. Teen-agers of the time looked like people in their forties today. George Fenneman was keeping score manually (confirmed) and someone, perhaps he, must have been keeping an ear out for the secret word. I'd forgotten that Groucho smoked a cigar continuously (and I don't mean continually). The commercials left in are great, too, for DeSoto, of course. "Tell'em Groucho sent ya." Thank you, Austin Public Library. I hope you have more of these on the shelves.
