John Darling – Take 352

Jan 8, 2023

There was a local show that ran in the afternoons during the run of John Darling. It was called the Prize Movie, and the movie related things you had to identify on the wheel were ridiculously simple. It was designed to ensure that the person would always win. And yet the number of people who would still miss them was astonishingly high. The wheel could land on a pic of King Kong swatting at planes from atop the Empire State Building, and someone would miss identify the movie. Plus they never changed the pictures, so if you watched long enough, you’d eventually hear all of the answers. Apparently,  the bar could not be set low enough.
