You Bet Your Life (TV - 1950-1961) 8 Disc Set!
24 great episodes and a 50 minute Groucho documentary all on 8 discs!
Starring: Groucho Marx
Plot: The You Bet Your Life TV series was derived from Groucho Marx's radio series of the same name. It was inspired after Groucho had done an improvisation scene with Bob Hope on the radio. The idea was to invite people on the show and then ask them a few questionable questions. This always led to improvised and inspired comic interaction with the unsuspecting guests and the occasional b-list celebrity (such as Ray Bradbury, John Wayne's son, and a teenage Candice Bergen). The subplot, which was almost incidental, was a quiz show with an alleged goal of winning money. Possibly one of the funniest television shows of all time and a real treat for the uninitiated.
