Charles Lincoln Van Doren (February 12, 1926 – April 9, 2019) was an American writer and editor who was involved in a television quiz show scandal in the 1950s. In 1959 he testified before the United States Congress that the producers of the show Twenty-One had given him the correct answers. Terminated by NBC, he joined Encyclopædia Britannica, Inc., in 1959, becoming a vice-president and writing and editing many books before retiring in 1982.
Quiz Show gets overlooked when we talk about great films from the nineties but it really shouldn’t. It has aged exceptionally well and is in many ways more relevant today than during its initial run.
