Fix you up in no time.

Hey, Julio!

Call Jack Spratt, the masseur.

Who will be the lucky winner

on tonight's Stroke of Fortune...

... the quiz show to end all quiz shows?

You don't have to guess anything,

you don't have to say anything...

... and you don't have to know anything.

If you're lucky and have a telephone

and can answer our call...

... you will receive $ 1000

and other valuable prizes...

... if you're lucky and have a telephone.

And now, the wheel is turning.

While we're waiting for

the winning number, the orchestra plays.

Excuse, please, senor,

you make with the massage?

- Not now. Come back later.

- But, senor...

You want me to lose a thousand dollars?

This is an important program.

They give away prizes.

Last week there was an old maid

in Pomona...

...she won a 32-room house,

a four-door sedan...

...a live-bait barge

and a two weeks' vacation... a Tibet monastery,

with all expenses paid.

Oh, but, senor, you better come with me.

Senor O'Rourke, she hurt his arm.

Her did? Senor O'Rourke,

you mean the captain of the polo team?

Well, why didn't you say so

in the first place?

I wouldn't have won anything anyhow.

I listen to these quiz programs all the time.

Of course, they never call me.

They... Sort of a waste of time.

Sometimes those quiz programs

are not on the level.

Stop the music, stop the music!

- Long distance is ringing the winner.

- Probably some phony name.

- Mr. Jack Spratt of Clayport, California.

- Jack Spratt!

Whoever heard of anyone

named Jack Spra...?

That's me! They're ringing me!

- No answer yet?

- It's locked.

- Keep trying, operator.

- Oh, the key, the key.

- Don't stop ringing!

- You'd better hurry up, Mr. Spratt.

- Well, I can't find my key!

- This is your last chance.
