Monty Hall, who co-created and hosted the game show "Let's Make A Deal," died as a result of heart failure Saturday in his home in Beverly Hills, Calif. He was 96.
"Let's Make a Deal" premiered in 1963 and has continued its successful run largely uninterrupted up to present day.
Hall hosted various game shows and other programs in his early career until he developed "Let's Make a Deal" with creative partner Stefan Hatos. The show became legendary for its audience members dressing up in outlandish costumes in order to attract Hall's attention in the hopes of being given the opportunity to win big.
