Edward Thorp, mathematics professor and author of "Beat the Dealer", the first book to outline card-counting techniques for improving odds when playing blackjack, appears as a contestant on a 1964 episode of "To Tell the Truth" with host Bud Collyer and panelists Tom Poston, Peggy Cass, Orson Bean, and Kitty Carlisle.

The outrage of the panelists at the idea that casinos can keep someone out just because they're winning surprised me.

Legendary WOR radio host John Gambling is one of the impostors in this game.
