Sometimes the process was switched, with a male questioning three females.
But in all cases the questions were designed by the show's writers to elicit sexy answers.
Occasionally, someone would actually launch a successful career through the show.
One example was the late country musician Box Car Willie, who was a 1977 , in two months. The book (and the 2002 film based on it, directed by George Clooney) were widely dismissed by disbelievers who said the creator of some of television's most lowbrow game shows had allowed his imagination to run wild when he claimed to have spent his spare time travelling the world, quietly rubbing out enemies of the United States.
I don't know if it makes it a better or worse film for supposedly being true - I enjoyed it even with me treating it like a work of fiction more than anything else. As it gets darker it begins to lose it's grip and become slightly less entertaining but strangely more watchable. While Barris and Byrd are good characters, some aren't as well used and you get the impression that the script wishes they weren't involved at all, certainly Penny and Patricia were a little confused and what was hinted at was never revealed in terms of who they were.
Although I missed this at the cinema, I was keen to get this film when it came out on DVD and wasn't disappointed by the film.At the height of his TV career, Chuck Barris was recruited by the CIA and trained to become a covert operative. When the new CIA agents are target practicing, they are a shooting range that has a clear flat terrain behind it as far as the eye can see. There is always a hill or some manmade elevation behind the targets to "catch" the bullets.Otherwise there'd be strays all over the place.Overall this was a very enjoyable film with it's own unique dark tone and comic content.It may not be 100% successful but it is a film more worthy of viewing than most of the stuff that you see on the shelves at your local video store.
The tone from the start is darkly comic, becoming increasingly dark and decreasingly comic as it goes along.
