Who Was Edward Hilgemeier? – Classic Game Shows

Edward Hilgemeier was a part-time nightclub comedian and a struggling actor. However, his claim to fame didn't come from either of these professions. His fifteen minutes of fame came from his time as a standby contestant on the short-lived Dotto game show in 1958.

Classic TV Game Shows – Dotto

Dotto was a popular game show which aired on CBS TV in 1958. The show did not last one year, not because people stopped watching the show, but because it was the first show to get caught up in the quiz show scandals. As soon as cheating was confirmed, the show was immediately cancelled.
