From the Golden Age of Television comes this hilarious game show with a unique twist - the co-hosts are made of wood! The most celebrated ventriloquist of all time, Edgar Bergen, brings his troupe of infamous dummies - Charlie McCarthy, Mortimer Snerd and Effie Clinker - to television after having soared to fame in radio and film. Memorably attired in his top hat, tuxedo and monocle, Charlie McCarthy received a special wooden Oscar for his contribution to movies and was later enshrined in the Smithsonian Institution as an American icon.
This collection of vintage episodes of "Do You Trust Your Wife?" features real-life married couples who compete for cash prizes by answering trivia questions, after first being subjected to comic interviews conducted by Edgar Bergen and his three wooden pals. Charlie, Mortimer and Effie always make the outrageous comments that mild-mannered Bergen wouldn't dream of delivering. In later seasons of the show, Bergen would hand over his hosting duties to a young, fresh-faced comedian named Johnny Carson.
