Let’s Make a Deal Host Dies


Monty Hall, the genial TV game show host whose long-running Let’s Make a Deal traded on love of money and merchandise and the mystery of which door had the car behind it, has died, reports the AP. He was 96. Hall died Saturday of heart failure at his home in Beverly Hills, said his daughter, Sharon Hall. He had been in poor health since a heart attack in June just after the death of his wife of almost seven decades, reports CNN. Let’s Make a Deal, which Hall co-created, debuted as a daytime show on NBC in 1963 and became a TV staple. Through the next four decades, it also aired in prime time, in syndication and, in two brief outings, with hosts other than Hall at the helm. An episode of The Odd Couple featured Felix Unger (Tony Randall) and Oscar Madison (Jack Klugman) as bickering guests on Hall’s program.
