I love watching  JEOPARDY with Alex Trebek!  Mostly, because it feels like I am tapping into my inner genius for at least 30 minutes…LOL

However, back in the day quiz shows were scandalous and  one particular scandal changed that world for its audience members forever.    Produced and directed by Robert Redford, Quiz Show chronicles popular game show – Twenty One and its scandals throughout most of the 1950s, the rise and fall of popular contestant Charles Van Doren after the rigged loss of Herb Stempel and Congressional investigator Richard Goodwin’s subsequent probe. Goodwin co-produced the film.

It make you look at these shows from a completely different lens. Here is a look at the trailer for Quiz Show
