Rating 5.0 Game Shows of the 50s: I've Got A Secret Movie Lover: from Orlando, FL US -- March, 30, 2009

Watched the two episodes of "I've Got A Secret". They are great! For this Baby Boomer who grew up watching this show on TV, it was great to see all of these people again (even on film). I remember that both Garry Moore and Bill Cullen were on TV a lot in those days. I think the only one still alive is Jayne Meadows.
