Another cross-promotional, podcast-related post this week, but this one’s much more relevant to game shows and how to win them.
It’s been 25 years since Robert Redford’s brilliant movie Quiz Show came out, and we’re revisiting it today. Quiz Show is a great period drama, based on the real life scandal behind the game show 21 back in the late 1950s. You may remember that I reviewed this movie here last year (my first ever movie review for the site!), but recently, I was invited onto the movie podcast Chatflix to discuss it with host Brose Avard.
Spoiler alert: we both liked the movie.
If you’re interested in the details, you can find the episode right here:
So there it is, available for your listening pleasure right now, if you’re interested.
Now, I did mention at the top of today’s post that it would be much more relevant to winning game shows than the last one was… and it just so happens that there IS one very big tip on winning game shows that’s central to the plot of Quiz Show. But if you haven’t seen the movie yet, this could possibly be considered a spoiler, so I’ll leave a bit of a gap before I reveal it…
The really big tip on how to win game shows put forward in Quiz Show is…
Get the show’s producers to give you all the questions and answers beforehand.
Actually, on second thoughts, that doesn’t happen anymore.
Largely because of the real-life events depicted in this movie.
So on reflection, that tip probably wasn’t all that helpful after all, was it? Sorry.
Aww, thanks Dick. Appreciate it.
See yez next time!
