"I'm too young to of seen these 2 shows during their original run, But I really enjoyed watching this DVD, which features 2 episodes of "I've Got a Secret" and 2 episodes of "Beat the Clock". One of the "I've Got a Secret" episodes features Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz, both of which seem to be enjoying themselves. "I've Got a Secret" was sponsored by Winston Cigarettes, and the original commercials are intact.
The original commercials are also intact for "Beat the Clock", which despite constant plugging for the sponsors (Both of which are forgotten companies), Is also very enjoyable. The picture quality isn't perfect, But it must be remembered that these old game shows were "Kinescoped", which means they were recorded by pointing a motion picture camera at a TV screen. Considering that, I think the picture quality is quite acceptable. I recommend this DVD to anyone who enjoys 50's TV."
The good old ones

"Just fun to see a summary of some of the old quiz shows. Just a fun way to see how different the shows were compared to now. Just good fun without being profane."
