Game Show Promos From 1972

Ah, 1972. How could you make an 83-year-old woman doing push-ups a compelling reason to watch a game show? Well, with three channels, that’s what passed for groundbreaking television, folks.

And you know, come to think of it: she was probably the inspiration for Jack Palance’s Oscar stunt.

The other two after Joker’s Wild I’ve never even freaking heard of. Good Lord.

Update: Alas, the vid’s been taken down.

Found via Classic Television Showbiz, where “old woman doing push-ups to Gershon Kingsley moog syntesizer music” can be a tag. Awesome.
