Trivia: Jack Barry

  • Hey, It's That Voice!: Many veteran game show announcers provided the narration for some Barry-Enright programs. Among them were Jack Clark, Johnny Jacobs, Johnny Gilbert, Art James, Bob Hilton, Marc Summers note , Jay Stewart, and Charlie O'Donnell. Jay Stewart, who began working for Barry-Enright in 1977, was the announcer on whom the company relied most during their peak period from 1977-84. Stewart left the company in 1981, following his daughter's suicide, and was replaced by O'Donnell. After 1986, the company went back to having rotating announcers until their remaining games ended in 1991.
    • Stewart also provided the narration in the trailers and TV spots for Barry-Enright's controversial but much-loved sex comedy cult classic, Private Lessons, produced in 1980 but released in '81.
