Monty Hall, legendary host of 'Let's Make a Deal,' dead at 96

Report: “Let's Make a Deal” host Monty Hall passes away at 96

Monty Hall, the iconic game show host of "Let's Make A Deal", has died.

The game show's contestants were chosen amongst the studio audience - wearing fancy dresses of clowns, cartoons and animals in order to draw host's attention towards them. In 1942, Hall was doing manual labor at the time when a wealthy stranger offered to pay for his college education on condition that he repaid the money, got top grades, kept his benefactor's name anonymous and agreed to help someone else.

Hall began his TV career in the 1950s hosting a series of children and game shows.

There's something else you should know about him: He was the father of Joanna Gleason, the Tony Award-winning actress whose rendition of "Moments in the Woods", from the Sondheim musical Into the Woods, is a thing that will make your life better.

Hall said the correct answer was yes - take the switch - but only if the host can not skew the results. Hall was born in Winnipeg, Manitoba. Shortly after in 1963, Hall would co-create Let's Make A Deal with Stefan Hatos.

But Monty Hall managed, always, to seem an advocate for the hapless contestant, even though he represented the show's producers' ruthless thirst for spectacle, for comeuppance.

In 1991, the New York Times published an article about what became known as "the Monty Hall problem" - a probability puzzle hotly debated by mathematicians centering on the advisability of switching choices when given options like those on his show.

"Do you want Door No. 1, No. 2 or No. 3?" had become the famous phrase of the game show, which had also allowed contestants to try their luck and winning a new vehicle.

Hall and his wife, Marilyn Plottel, married in 1947.

He is survived by two daughters, a son, a brother and 5 grandchildren.
