TV Guide, July 5, 1958 - Bill Cullen of "The Price Is Right"
I was fortunate to have the pleasure of sharing a dressing room with Bill Cullen, when the two of us were doing shows for [Barry Enright Productions]. I was doing Tic-Tac-Dough' and he was filling in for Jack Barry on 'Joker's Wild.' We got to talk between breaks of shows. It's really one of the most memorable periods of my game show hosting life. Sadly, one of the things I remember most is that he smoked about three packs of unfiltered Camel cigarettes a day. That's what took his life.
