You Bet Your Life

While contestants in this comedy-quiz show didn’t really bet their lives, each week three couples did bet all or part of their winnings, hoping to get a shot at the jackpot. Groucho Marx, with his signature mustache, cigar and eyebrows, over-matched wits with contestants in this unrehearsed, sometimes zany program that was recorded in front of a live audience.

The radio version of You Bet Your Life ran from 1947 to 1956. By that time, television was becoming the major home-entertainment medium, and the Golden Age of radio was fading. But Groucho didn’t compete with TV, he joined it. You Bet Your Life was seen from 1950 to 1961 and became the first television program to be filmed in front of a studio audience, according to Film Craft Productions. During the years 1950 to 1956, You Bet Your Life was broadcast simultaneously, and radio listeners heard what the television audience was watching.
