Break the Bank (1948)
Contestants from the studio audience answered questions, each starting at $25 for a correct answer up to $500. A contestant is allowed only one wrong answer. A contestant successfully making it to the $500 question had the chance to answer a question to "break the bank." The value of the bank was determined by how long it had been since last broken.
A daytime and nighttime show aired. On the nighttime show, a special feature was the "bank holdup." The camera would focus on a member of the audience, who had the chance for prizes by answering a question. In 1956, a short-lived variant, Break the $250,000 Bank, aired.
