Yes, that Gene Wood.

You probably best remember Gene Wood for his voice work in such Goodson-Todman productions as Family Feud, Card Sharks, and Password. But in the early ’70s, you’d have found him in front of the camera hosting one of the many incarnations of Beat the Clock, in which he challenged couples from a studio audience to perform elaborate and embarrassing stunts for money. I remember this only because they filmed this most American of game shows in Montréal, of all places . . . probably because even then they had to leave the country to find enough contestants sufficiently healthy to handle the strain.
