Trivia / Greed

Trivia for the Game Show:

  • Executive Meddling: The Terminator was Fox's idea. Dick Clark wanted the game to be "all for one, one for all".
  • Follow the Leader: Greed was one of countless big-money quizzes created in the wake of Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?.
  • The Other Marty: Burton Richardson announced the first episode, but was dubbed over with Mark Thompson. Notably, Mark "re-created" a Throw It In! moment from Burton, who accidentally called a contestant "Michelle Smith" instead of Michael. (All of Mark's work was done in post.)
  • Screwed by the Network: Was going to get a second season, but it was axed by the network's anti-Game Show president.

Trivia for the Film:

  • Executive Meddling: This film was a victim of this, with the original 42-reel cut being massively edited by the studio into a two-hour movie that was panned by critics and audiences alike.
  • Missing Episode: Large portions of this originally 8 hour film were cut and thrown away by the producers.
  • Playing Against Type: ZaSu Pitts, primarily known for her comedic roles, as the doomed Trina.
