Magnificent Marble Machine Here's a unique and forgotten game show: The Magnificent Marble Machine! Hosted by Art James, the show ran for 11 months on NBC starting on July 7, 1975. Designed to take advantage of the pinball craze, contestants were paired with celebrity partners to solve word puzzles, which, by some bizarre logic, entitled the winners to play an oversized pinball machine for cash and prizes! If the ball hit a bumper the contestant won a prize. Hey, I liked the show, but I was 11 years old at the time.

Wow...look how young Art James looks...and Johnny Gilbert was a game show announcer in 1975!

Darn it. I confused Art James with Dennis James. Both are now hosting games shows in the great beyond...

A game show that was ahead of it's time. Had it been on in the 80's and with the advent of video games and pinball machines Magnificent Marble Machine could've been a monster game show.
