BEAT THE CLOCK starring Bud Collyer
29 filled shows

This was probably game show TV's greatest stunt show. Contestants had to win prices by performing crazy stunts with balloons, whip cream, custard pies and more in order to win prizes. One of the earliest of all game shows and truly one of the most fun. This set also includes 3 bonus game shows from MAKE THE CONNECTION with famous guest stars.
Beat the Clock was one of televisions most durable game shows. Its popularity was derived from its simple format and wacky action. Two couples, preselected from the studio audience, had to complete various stunts within a time limit (usually 60 seconds or less) to win cash and prizes. Examples of the often-messy stunts (the centerpiece of the show) included blowing a plastic ship carrying a ping-pong ball from one side of a water-filled tub to the other, without allowing the ball to fall off; stuffing eight balloons in a lidded wastebasket without breaking any; and extracting three marshmallows buried in Jell-O using a spoon held in his mouth, then placing each marshmallow on a plate next to them.
A huge clock counted down the seconds, as host Collyer provided commentary and encouragement. Couples who successfully completed their stunt won cash (usually $100 to $200, depending on the round) and a prize. After the first round of stunts, each couple got a chance to complete an extra-difficult "bonus stunt" (e.g., blowing a feather off a table and then catching it with a top hat while it was being worn) worth $100 plus $100 for each show it was not completed. During the big-money quiz-show era, the bonus prize stunt was worth $5,000 plus $1,000 for each show not completed.
Included with this set are three bonus episodes of the panel show MAKE THE CONNECTION a game show with Betty White, Eddie Bracken, Gene Raymond, Gloria Dehaven, Hoggy Carmichael, Buster Keaten, Loraine Day. A simple game where guests are presented and the panel has to guess what connection the guests have with one another.
