Betty White graces “Million Dollar Password”

Milliondpassword_2Betty White alert! The first lady of television will grace CBS’ air as a contestant on the June 12 edition of Million Dollar Password.”

White, of course, was married to Mr. Password, Allen Ludden, for many years and logged plenty of appearances on the show in its 1960s and ’70s, Goodson-Todman heyday. Ludden had such a graceful way of handing the cards to contestants on the original show, with its pop-up toaster clues.

In this Regis Philbin-hosted primetime incarnation of the show, White will be paired with “Curb Your Enthusiasm’s” Susie Essman. Oughta be fun — but be forewarned, contestants: White is a heck of a “Password” player.

(From years of watching vintage “Password” reruns, my husband and I have determined that the all-time greatest “Password” player was Peter Lawford. He put so much into it. Carol Burnett runs a close second.)
