     Three versions of the series were produced by Barry & Enright 
     Productions, who became notorious when their series "Twenty-One"
     was the focus of the national "rigged quiz show scandal" (as
     dramatized in the movie "Quiz Show");

     The first version on NBC was hosted by Jack Barry, Gene Rayburn
         and then Bill Wendell;

     The second version on CBS Daytime/Syndicated Evenings was hosted by 
         Wink Martindale in 1978, then by Jim Caldwell for the 1986 season;

     The final 1990 Syndicated revival version was hosted by actor
         Patrick Wayne (son of John Wayne)]
