Synopsis

Documentary about the corruption of the quiz-show industry in the 1950s, which was revealed after Charles Van Doren, an attractive, self-effacing teacher, was discovered to have participated in a rigged quiz on "Twenty-One." Congressional investigations of rigged quiz shows led to the blacklisting of quiz producers, the arrest and conviction of contestants, and reforms in the television industry that separated sponsers from television programs.
