I was wondering if you'd be doing an archive of those shows. Other contestants who appeared in their unknown or pre-stardom eras included The Carpenters, Jackson Bostwick, Joanna Cameron, Andy Kaufman (who went under the name Baji Kimran), Steve Martin, Burt Reynolds, John Ritter, Phil Hartman, Jennifer Granholm (Governor of Michigan from 2003-2010), the actor Jay North, Arnold Schwarzenegger, and Tom Selleck (who went on the show twice but was not chosen as a "date" either time).The future Federal Judge Alex Kozinski appeared on it and was selected as a "date". Some contestants appeared even after they were fairly well known, including a young Michael Jackson, Ron Howard, Maureen Mc Cormick, Barry Williams, Sally Field, Richard Dawson, and Paul Lynde. [email protected] Dad was on the show sometime around 1975 ish. I would love to get a copy of that show if it's available. My dad passed away in 1984 and I would love to be able to show my kids their grandfather.
Props: Background set to resemble The Dating Game, three stools, one chair or a fourth stool, a directors chair, appropriate costuming, theme show music with logo and kisses for screens, index cards for Peggys questions, CDs to play during the skit as directed below. Welcome to another exciting episode of THE D-A-T-I-N-G G-A-M-E! In just a moment you will meet a young lady who will have the opportunity to choose one lucky man for a fabulous date, based only on their answers to her questions.
Typically, a bachelorette would question three bachelors, who were hidden from her view; at the end of the questioning period, she would choose one to go out with on a date paid for by the show.
Occasionally, the roles would be reversed with a man questioning three ladies; other times, a celebrity would question three players for a date for themselves, a co-worker or a relative of theirs.
One standard trademark was that at the end of each episode, the host and winning contestants would blow a kiss to the viewers.
The Dating Game was hosted by Jim Lange from its debut on ABC until the late 1970s syndicated series went off the air.
