Bill Cullen

He wasn't an actor, a singer or a dancer. He wasn't a witty writer or a stand-up comic. In fact, Bill Cullen's entire claim to TV fame was as a game show panelist and/or host. I first discovered him on I'VE GOT A SECRET in the early sixties but I followed him through The original THE PRICE IS RIGHT, EYE GUESS, TO TELL THE TRUTH and a dozen or more short-lived game shows up to his passing in 1990. And he did it all with a pronounced disability that made walking hard for him. But that was kept secret from the public. Always a favorite.

  1. His peers have been quoted as saying the man was an absolute genius, too. Unfortunate that he's remembered by relatively few people nowadays.
