"Will the Real Jean Beliveau Please Stand Up"
A Journey into Hockey
These days hockey players seem to promote themselves and the game in an endless number of ways.
Back in 1957, hockey was not as well-recognized in the States.
So, the NHL jumped at the opportunity for a bit of promotion by participating in this CBS-TV game show - To Tell The Truth.
Jean Beliveau and two imposters appeared in front of a panel whose job it was to find the real # 4 from the pretenders.
The viewing is an interesting window into another place and time.
BTW, note that it was one of the imposters who was wearing #4 not the real Jean Beliveau (He was wearing #22).
