"Lets Make a Deal" Host Monty Hall Is No more

Monty Hall, the host of the classic TV game show "Let's Make a Deal", died Saturday, Sept. 30, 2017 of heart failure at his home in Beverly Hills, according to The New York Times.

Hall was born in Winnipeg, Manitoba, on August 25, 1921, as Monte Halperin.

Hall's career began in radio in the late 1940's and moved to various hosting game show gigs in local television markets.

An episode of the show named "The Odd Couple" that featured Tony Randall (Felix Unger) and Jack Klugman (Oscar Madison) as the bickering guests on the game show hosted by Hall. Although he earned a bachelor's degree in chemistry and zoology from the University of Manitoba, it was the applause from college musicals that piqued his interest in acting and singing. Though CBS credited Hall's Production for the show and Hall continued to contribute as a creative consultant and co-creator of the format.

In fact, the term "Come on down" was given new meaning thanks to Hall.
