Bank job?

Of a sort.

Actually, Hal March was host of The $64,000 Question, which was the first of the really big, successful quiz shows on American television in the 1950s. It eventually got roped into the so-called Quiz Show Scandal a few years later, but compared to some of the programs brought low in that inquiry (21, for example), they were the ethical gold standard.
