Trivia / Greed

Trivia for the Game Show:

  • 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" instead of "Michael".
  • Screwed by the Network: Was going to get a second season, but it was axed by the network's anti-Game Show president.
  • Throw It In: Burton Richardson announced the first episode until it was decided to replace him with Mark Thompson. When announcing the first episode, Burton accidentally called a contestant "Michelle Smith" instead of Michael. Mark Thompson "re-created" this blooper when he was chosen as the series' announcer (all his work was done in post).

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.
  • Playing Against Type: ZaSu Pitts, primarily known for her comedic roles, as the doomed Trina.
