I just the love the movie Quiz Show. No telling how many times I’ve seen it. The video is the episode that the movie was pretty much based on. This episode came out about 3 months after I was born, so I didn’t see it. Well, maybe I did – I just don’t remember it.
Poor Herbie. Taking a dive. Anyway, he’s still alive. He’s 88. Charles Van Doren is still alive, too. He’s 89.
In the movie, Herbie lost the game after he took the dive on the Marty question. But in reality, there was still more game that was played – and they tied. Then another game. Herbie lost when Van Doren stopped the game.
