YMMV: Dream House

For the movie:

  • The Woobie: Peter Ward, the man whose family was killed. He hears the confrontation between his wife and the gunman, tries to save her and the children, and was inadvertently shot by his mortally-wounded wife, is accused of the murders of his wife and daughters. Little wonder he abandoned his identity and took up the false identity of Will Attenton.

For the Game Show:

  • Suspiciously Similar Song: The 1980s version originally used the second theme of Goodson-Todman's Showoffs. It was later changed to something that sounded similar to it.
