October 8th, 1955-April 2nd, 1957
 
A quiz show with a $100,000 top prize. Jack Barry was the original host. He was replaced in the second season by Mike Wallace. 

NOTE:
Almost all daytime game shows from the 1950's thru the 1970's have been destroyed. A conservative conscientious  effort to save programming by CBS's archives begin in 1972, ABC in 1978, and NBC in 1980. Only a handful of producers (most notably Goodson-Todman) did arrange for the preservation of their shows even during the tape-recycling period.

Series Premiere.  

NOTE:
   Status of The Mike Wallace Interview
A total of 72 episodes of The Mike Wallace Interview were broadcast by ABC between 1957 and 1958. The series premiered on April 28th, 1957 and was sponsored by Phillip Morris through the April 18th, 1958 episode. The Fund for the Republic then sponsored a 13-week set of interviews entitled “Liberty and Freedom” (one of which was never broadcast) followed by an additional six episodes. The final broadcast took place on September 14th, 1958.

My article about The Mike Wallace Interview can be found here.

The Harry Ransom Center at the University of Texas at Austin has 66 of the 72 episodes of The Mike Wallace Interview. Five are only available as audio recordings while the rest are kinescopes that have been digitized and made available for viewing online. The Ransom Center also has a transcript of the Ben Hecht interview (broadcast February 25th, 1958) but no audio or video. One of the episodes the Ransom Center does not have a copy of is the controversial Mickey Cohen broadcast from May 19th, 1957.

According to Steve Winston, Associate Curator of Film at the Ransom Center, “There are reports that the BBC still has some excerpts though we have not been able to locate the specific department that might hold them. Other than that, the interview appears to be lost.” Audio of the Cohen episode is part of Archival Television Audio, Inc. collection.

Also missing from the Ransom Center’s collection are the two retractions read by ABC’s Oliver Treyz on May 27th and December 14th. According to Winston, “We have no idea why the footage was not included in the kinescope. We don’t know if they were removed later, or if they were never recorded in the first place.” Archival Television Audio, Inc. has the May 27th retraction read by Treyz.

The UCLA Film & Television Archive has two episodes of the series: the Cyrus Eaton interview that is audio only at the Ransom Center and the Ben Hecht interview that the Ransom Center only has a transcript for. Both the Museum of Broadcasting and The Paley Center for Media have several episodes that are also part of the Ransom Center’s collection.

(According to a December 1957 article in The Los Angeles Times, a filmed “stand-by interview” with Evelyn Rudie was always ready to be used in the event a guest didn’t show up. It is not included in the episode count and its current whereabouts are unknown.)

1961-1962, Syndicated

A ninety-minute nightly syndicated talk show with Mike Wallace and his co-host Joyce Davidson. Wallace and Davidson hosted the first hour from New York with Terrence O'Flaherty hosting the last half-hour from San Francisco. It was created to compete with the Jack Paar Show on NBC. 

Mike Wallace explains yesterday's walkout by guest Burt Lancaster. 
He speaks to his television and studio audience for 15 minutes detailing last night's walk-off by guest Burt Lancaster. Wallace mentions that this was the first time in 16 years someone walked off when interviewing him/her. Mike states that he likes to do an interview devoid of "fluff" and ask pointed and relevant questions. 
Usually there is a pre-screening of questions by the staff and guest but not on this occasion. Mike mentions he met Burt ten minutes before going on TV in the men's room.  Mike Wallace mentions that on last night's telecast which had Barbara Streisand, Phil Foster, Ossie Davis and Ruby Dee as guests appearing before Burt Lancaster, he waited till the last 30 minutes to have Lancaster appear. Mike recalls the first three questions posed to  Burt, and his taking exception to the question when asked why he has a bad temper, at which time he just got up and walked off. Wallace apologizes to Burt but also reads the 10 other questions he was going to ask Lancaster. 

Guests Faye Emerson and Jerry Lester discuss with Mike their feelings about the walk off. Faye remembers being interviewed by Wallace on NIGHTBEAT and being asked, "if she thought Marilyn Monroe and Arthur Miller's marriage would last."
 

NOTE: When Burt Lancaster walked off the show , it was the first time such occurrence would happen in the career of Mike Wallace. 
Wallace requested the audio air check audio  tape of this moment archived in the ATA collection. He set up a meeting with Phil Gries, owner of Archival Television Audio, Inc. at The Paley Center in NYC where Gries gave him a dub of the recording. 

A week later Phil Gries received a letter from Mike Wallace who stated that when listening to the air check he yelled into the play back machine to "stop talking so much.!"
