When I was a kid, there was a TV show called DON ADAMS' SCREEN TEST.  I believe it survived only one season.  Anyway, they would show a short clip from a movie, then the contestant would act out the scene with the help of a celebrity (sort of like "Acting with the Stars").  They would have sets and make-up that resembled the actual movie.  The winner would get a small role (probably as an extra) in a movie, soap opera, or TV series.  Does anyone remember this show?  I don't remember many details, but I believe one of the scenes they recreated was from THE BRIDE OF FRANKENSTEIN and I think Milton Berle was one of the celebrity guest stars.

Ozzymanidas speaks: I am familiar with it, but I don't remember a lot. I had mentioned it on another thread.

Yes, I do as well, but my question is, of all the contestants who won on that show, did any of them go on to make it as an actor in Hollywood?

Got me on if anybody made it.

I remember William Shatner on it. I think he was an indian in that one. Debbie Reynolds had to do a makeout scene with a contestant guy and I remember she wasn't pleased with how he did it.
