Place the Face is a primetime game show that aired on NBC and CBS in the early-to-mid 50s.

A contestant faced a guest who stood behind a picture frame and was given a clue about a connection from the past between the two. The contestant asked "yes" or "no" questions about the connection and was given further clues. The contestant had three minutes to discern the connection for a cash prize.

A celebrity guest was employed to figure out the connection between him/her and a figure from his/her past.

One of the announcers was Jack Narz, who was not only a noted game show host but later would be Bill Cullen's brother-in-law.
