Princess, you got all but one right, which is very good.   #10 is not Elinor Donahue.  Ellen Miller was a character on a show that was set on a farm.  She was played by an actress who had been a Broadway star in the 1940's.

Very good, everyone.  Jan Clayton was billed as Jane Clayton when she appeared in some Hopalong Cassidy pictures in the late 1930's.  That's where she met her first husband, Russell 'Lucky" Hayden, one of Hoppy's saddle pals.  She was the first actress to play Julie Jordan in Rodgers and Hammerstein's "Carousel" on Broadway in 1945.

Everyone liked Maurice Gosfield as Pvt. Duane Doberman.  He was so popular that he even got his own comic book.

Thanks to everyone for playing.  Princess got the most so she gets the thread.

*(Lyrics are not on the TV show, opening or closing. But are well known today because of the iconic nature of the show.

1 point real extra credit for this one. )

1. Win prizes within a time limit by doing stunts

2. Students compete

3. The show would end with the host and winning contestant blowing a kiss to the audience there and at home.

4. Audience contestants came in costumes

5 .Couples would answer questions that were sometimes funny, sometimes embarrassing, usually about their relationship

6. Prizes were given when contestants guessed right about merchandise, you needed to a savvy shopper to win

7. Hardships told by woman contestants, usually the woman with the best sob story won

All correct except 1 and 3. Your answer to 1 is similiar, but on this show relating to the question,  something was on the stage to determine if the contestant won.

 #3. the host and the contestant didn't  kiss the way Richard Dawson did on Family Feud.  The tv show that relates to the question, as I wrote, the host and the contestant blew a kiss to the the viewer at the end of the show.

Still open 1,3, 8

Originally the show was called Pantomine Quiz. until 1959. It returned to tv in 1962 as Stump the Stars and that's when I watched the show. Mike Stokey  produced the show and was the host,  Pat Harrington Jr. also hosted the show at one point. At one time or another all 4 networks carried the show. I still remember the theme song and sometimes humm it to myself. It was a really fun show and  many celebrities at the time showed up on the show to play. Vincent Price was a regular so was Beverly Garland, Stubby Kaye. Ross Martin, Richard Long, Hans Conreid, Vera Miles and many more. 

Good work Princess, Peebs and Shuttoo. thanks for playing, I had fun remembering these shows, hope you all did too. Princess, you answered 6, Peebs, 3 and Shuttoo played clean up. Princess, it's your turn to post one.

2) This western's hero was an ex- Confederate officer, who worked undercover as a government agent. He spent his time gambling on a riverboat. And he brought in the bad guys with the help of a fancy gun and a Native American sidekick.

3) Here is another undercover government agent in the Wild West. He poses as a salesman for the "Peacemaker"revolver.

4) In this western the hero was an agent troubleshooter for a private  company and was known as the "left-handed gun".

5) In this western  a new sheriff in town teaches his young deputy the ropes, while romancing the blonde salon owner who also doubles as the schoolmarm.

6) A sheriff in a Kansas town deals with keeping the peace with the help of a local sidekick, while romancing the red headed saloon keeper and listening to the wisdom of the local doctor.

7) In this western another ex-Confederate roams the Wild West with his father's sawed- off double barrel shotgun and a revolver.

😎 Eight) This hour long western featured a hero who was the mayor of a town in  Oklahoma territory. The local blacksmith also served as the town's deputy.

9) And this Western features yet another ex- Confederate officer who is now a Texas Ranger,  and who also doubles as the sheriff of a Texas town.

10) This western is a fictionalized account of two real Wild West legends, Pat Garrett and Billy the Kid.
