YOU'RE IN THE PICTURE {SERIES PREMIERE} (TV)

Summary

Premiere of this short-lived game show hosted by Jackie Gleason. The game's design calls for four celebrity panelists to stick their heads through cut-outs in a large panel depicting a scene only the audience can see. The panelists ask Gleason questions and then guess the subject or theme of the tableau from his answers. In this, the first and last episode in which the game was played, panelists were Pat Carroll, Jan Sterling, Arthur Treacher, and Pat Harrington, Jr., and the panels represented "Pocahontas Rescues John Smith," "Itsy Bitsy Teenie Weenie Yellow Polkadot Bikini," "Metropolitan Museum of Art," "The Burlesque 'Beef Trust Girls'," and "Goldilocks and the Three Bears." Includes commercials for Kellogg's cereals, with Dennis James, and L&M filter cigarettes, with Gleason as spokesman. A voiceover promo by Rod Serling for "The Twilight Zone" accompanies the end credits. (The second and final episode of this series appears on T88:0035.)
