Let’s Make A Deal , the game show hosted by Monty Hall, originally aired from 1963-1977. Other game shows at the time were comprised of contestants that were pre-selected and the audience was merely there to observe. Let’s Make A Deal was surprisingly different. Monty Hall, the host, began the show by meandering throughout the studio, choosing audience members at random to try their hand at a game of chance.
