MY HUSBAND HAS BEEN COLLECTING OLD TIME RADIO
SHOWS FOR A LONG TIME NOW. HE LISTENS TO THEM WHILE HE IS
WORKING IN THE DARKROOM.
WE THOUGHT WE WOULD SHARE THEM WITH OTHERS SO THEY
COULD ENJOY THEM ALSO.
You Bet Your Life is an American
radio and television quiz show. The first and most famous version
was hosted by Groucho Marx, of Marx Brothers fame, with the
unflappable announcer and assistant George Fenneman. The show
debuted on radio in 1947, then made the transition to the NBC
television network in 1950. The television version was changed very
little from the radio version. It was filmed before a studio
audience, then slightly edited for television broadcast. In 1960 it
was renamed The Groucho Show and ran a further year.
It still appears in re-runs to this
day, often on stations and networks aimed at a "family" audience.
Most of the episodes have fallen into the public domain.
One often-told story recounts the
appearance of a female contestant who spoke in broken English, and
who was clearly an easy mark for the quick-thinking Marx. In the
course of the usual pre-game interview, Groucho was putting her at
ease by asking questions about her life. The contestant offered
that she had borne eleven children, to which Groucho remarked
"Eleven children!" The contestant innocently replied "I love my
husband," to which Groucho responded with the now famous "I love my
cigar, but I take it out once in a while!" The audience laughed for
minutes. The story goes that the remark was judged too
risquÃ© to be aired at the time, and was edited out
before the radio broadcast, but the audio of the audience reaction
was used by NBC for many years whenever bring-down-the-house
laughter was called for in laugh tracks.
