Report: “Let's Make a Deal” host Monty Hall passes away at 96
His daughter, Joanna Gleasonconfirmed that Hall passed away on Saturday at his home in Beverly Hills.
Hall, born in Manitoba, Canada, on August 25, 1921, began his career as a stage actor in college. Hall was born in Winnipeg, Manitoba.
Our thoughts are with Hall's family during this hard time.
Other shows created and hosted by Hall include "Split Second", "Chain Letter" and "It's Anybody's Guess".
The show aired with Hall as host until 1976 and for years in syndication.
In 1991, the New York Times published an article about what became known as "the Monty Hall problem" - a probability puzzle hotly debated by mathematicians centering on the advisability of switching choices when given options like those on his show. Hall was producer or executive producer of the show through most of its runs.
In the early 1960s, he was developing game shows and joined forces with TV veteran Stefan Hatos.
Five year later, he moved to Hollywood and hosted the game show Video Village, where contestants served as tokens moving around a game board.
"It was much more exciting than the first 20 minutes of the show", he recalled. In the end, Monty Hall said that he wanted to be remembered for helping people rather than his celebrity status.
His family's financial circumstances and a childhood accident stirred that charitable desire, Hall said.
"When you've been that sick, spent a year out of school, you identify with people who have these ailments and sicknesses", he told the Palm Beach (Fla.) Post in a 2003 interview. He was known for charity work for organizations including Variety Clubs International, which raised money for disadvantaged children. Wards were named in his honor at Mount Sinai Hospital in Toronto, Hahnemann University Hospital in Philadelphia and other medical centers.
He is survived by two daughters, a son, a brother and 5 grandchildren.
